Let Me Help Your Quest In Overcoming Addiction
I wanted to make this site to help out others with all of the problems of substance abuse and drug addiction. My goal was not to make it a dry source of statistics or a place where a user or a user’s family or friends would feel persecuted. I just wanted to give out useful information that would be relevant about Overcoming Addiction. I guess you could say that I am one of those people “In The Know” when it comes to this stuff. I have been an addict for 17 years now. Of that 17 years I have been clean and sober for a little over 2 years. I STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO! Just remember that phrase as you’re reading around. I think that in some way it helps me keep it together. I do happen to have a lot of relevant experience when it comes to this stuff because I have failed many times before and I think I finally get it now. I want to encourage everyone to leave comments of their personal experience and try to learn from each other.
Heroin Withdrawals/Heroin Recovery
I want to get some important information on heroin withdrawals to users up front because of its desperate nature. The cycle of any addiction is hard to break, weather it’s smoking cigarettes or crack. An added misery of trying to break the cycle is physical addiction. I will be first in line to tell anyone thinking of getting off of opiates that the sick feeling, which comes with the territory, is almost unbearable! I often explain the pain as: “Like someone trying to pull out your guts with a fish hook!” Now that is not completely accurate, but it is not any experience that I would wish on my worst enemy. Overcoming addiction and getting away from heroin withdrawals does not have to be a painful experience! There are a couple of ways to achieve this. I have personally used Suboxone to get clean, and aside from its less than fantastic taste, it has worked wonderfully. It has changed my life 180 degrees. What that means is, I’m doing the exact opposite as I was when I first started treatment. I am drug free and starting to lead the successful life I once had! That is after 16 months of out patient treatment. If you do go with the option to use Suboxone for your heroin recovery, it is important that you follow the program exactly as you were instructed. If you do that, it will work. Another option is a live in rehabilitation facility. I think that it is a smart option for anyone that can’t get away from the most important part of heroin recovery: people, places, and things.
With all the heroin abuse and recovery success stories that we’ve read and heard about, there is definitely hope yet for heroin addicts who want to clean up.
I wish you well, and feel free to leave me a comment or E-Mail Me.
