I detoxed at home. I didn't run away thinking that would solve my problems. I still took care of my kids.. maybe not the house so much during that time. The phyisical withdrawls only last about two weeks... the worst of it atleast. The mental withdrawls took about six months and a lot of growing up. I firmly believe NA saved my life but that may not be the answer for everyone. Most go to rehab to get out of jail time. Some go looking for a miracle then realize they must actually fight to stay clean everyday and give up. Some just give up period... they usually end up in the obits. Suboxone is a load of crap. You can't substitute one drug for another because you don't want to go thru the detox process. Like someone else said... put on your big girl panties. Sweat, shake, shiver, puke, and crap your way thru the withdrawls then find a way of fixing the problem.... and just so you know... if you are an addict you ARE the problem. Stop using excuses for staying high/drunk and become a productive member of society.

Depends on the person really....
I was addicted to drugs but got pregnant and decided to quit. I dropped it the moment I found out and have been clean for 5 yrs now. I cant say I didnt want it and sometimes the withdraw was almost more then I could handle and made me feel like I was dying. But I fought it out cause I wanted to have a straight life for my child. And I did what it took.
My brother on the other hand decided to quit and better himself although he had no children or such just simply was tired of the life he was living. But when he would try the withdraw was more then he could physically with stand so rehab was his option. They assisted and supported him and he has now been clean 2 yrs.
I also have another Uncle whom was a drunk from teenage yrs he to had to have help to quit. He would try to lay it down all at once but he would just about die and I mean literally cause her body had become dependent upon it

Yes.You are right.Most never care enough to do this.I would give you a big hug.Because I did the same thing as you,and there is no better feeling in the world.It is hard but the struggle keeps you from going down that road again.

yes it does blah. I may have moments where I think about getting a drink at dinner etc but I don't and can't. I don't ever want to go thru that again. I think that why when people relapse it's even harder to get clean because they know what they face. Good for you blah and both work. I'm not one of the lucky ones who didn't need rehab. And it had nothing to do with strength. It has to do with surrender. I threw up my hands and said enough. I just couldn't take the life I was living anymore. It was either get clean or die trying. If I die today I die clean. I can live with that. Rehab is crap. Sorry. But there are few that actually work. The ones that do people don't want to use because it's an extended process. Everyone wants a quick fix which is part of what led to my addiction in the first place. There is no magic pill, button, or answer. It's the simplest thing I ever did... and the hardest. Good luck to all who fight this disease every day.

I hate drugs they are the seed of the devil. They do nothing but destroy lives. Not just my life but my familys . I am trying to quit. part of the problem the dealers keep calling and I am not that strong. I tell them to stopr but they dont so I am getting my number changed.
Yep

Sparta, TN

#14 Jan 8, 2013
you can change your number.... but what happens when you get weak and call them? There is no try... there is do or do not. Just quit. They will stop calling eventually if you keep telling them no. Drugs are just a symptom of the problem. Like I said before, the problem is you. Addiction is a selfish disease about self gratification and a feeling of entitlement. I felt justified for numbing myself into oblivion because the stuff I'd been through in life. Took me a lot of work to realize none of the crap in my past mattered. It was all about me.... and that was the problem... it was always all about me.
wow

you probably think not smoking a joint is stopping using..You are either ignorant to this disease and in and out patient people do benefit from..I should be dead and withdrawals ,I wanted to die!! I am clean,but I understand so much more about DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND DIFFERENT DRUGS,SAME MISERABLE THING CALLED ADDICTION.

wow are you on suboxone? Subutex? Methadone? Psychiatric meds? Anti anxiety meds? Sleeping meds? Most who go to in or out patient through a clinic or facility get discharged on these types of meds. When I quit I was smoking meth, eating pain pills, muscle relaxers, nerve pills, diet pills, smoking pot, binge drinking, and occasionally but not often shooting crack. Not to mention the SSRI's, sleeping pills, and antidepressants I was being prescribed. I quit it all cold turkey. At home. No medical assistance. I was a hard core junkie. So when someone wants to whine about how hard withdrawls are and how they just can't handle it, it pisses me off. I promise if I can do it... anyone can. It did suck and at about 5 days withdrawing from all that I did want to die. I didn't know how much longer I was going to have to feel that way. But it passed. On the sixth day I woke feeling a little better and it just keeps getting better. It's all temporary.

Wow, you WERE hardcore if you shot crack. Do you have a lot of damaged veins from it? Did you use vinegar or lemon juice?
Yep

lemon juice. I only did it about six times and it wasn't my thing. Got a bad shot and thought my arm was going to fall off. Freaked out thinking I had given myself a blood clot. I have a few scars but I didn't like it so the damage was minimal.
