It's going to be OK. Let go and let God. Do you have a higher power in your life yet? It can be anything. Alcoholism is a spiritual disease man. Please turn to page 153 of the Big Book ($25 by the coffee table that is one of the traditions we don't take donations). This completes my 240 hours of community service. I'm out of this bitch.

instead of being addicted to drugs, get addicted to people, what can go wrong? I mean, you could try getting some professional help from people who actually read anything more than leaftets they are handing out and work on your addictive personality issues but who would waste time on this crap, right?

Violates your right to free association and religion for a court to require you to go to AA or NA. Buddhist dude in Hawaii sued the state for ordering him to go to AA and he won on those grounds.

Also their methodology is outdated (addiction is not a lifelong disease), founded on moralistic bullshit (Bill W got clean after a psychospiritual breakthrough from LSD) and it's not clear how successful the program is since they either don't track their success rate or don't release that info. If it helps some people, cool, but it never worked for me. Only until I did ibogaine and stopped following their stupid ass religious manifesto did I find the meaning I lacked in my life, and I found it and defined for MYSELF, without hanging out with a bunch of depressed fucks with arrested development who think they're forever cursed by old behaviors

WOW, so this is what happened to me today, I show up to my treatment center after work, wasn't able to go home and shower and get the weed smell off my person. My Current Counselor tells me that I won't be allowed to join todays class because it's "triggering" to people who are recovering. I try to Compromise and rush over to the Krogers next door to buy a can of spray deodorant so I don't smell like cannabis. After doing this and spraying myself with about half the fucking can and going in to see if I wasn't smelling like ganja anymore, she tells me she'll be able to let me participate. I go outside. NOT EVEN FIVE MINUTES GOES PAST AND SHE RETRACTS HER STATEMENT. I now have a second strike against me and technically because of this I violated the contract I signed with her because I accidentally missed a UA one sunday because of confusion on cutoff time. BECAUSE OF THIS I RISK GOING TO JAIL AND NOT BEING ABLE TO COMPLETE MY DIVERSION. I'm fucking pissed, and I feel like she is unjustly discriminating against me because of my job in the cannabis industry. I understand that it may trigger some people, but I did more than enough to try and accomodate this pompous fat cunt.

I plan on calling the director tommorow and Telling my side of the story, and if she doesn't want to work with me, then I may look into getting a lawyer and am thinking i might need to switch treatment centers. What do you guys think?

Go to a different treatment place. Group therapy shit is bogus and they usually do that because individualized treatment is much more time consuming and they want to make as much money by "helping" as many people as possible. You prolly have enough of your own problems to deal with, it's not your problem to worry about other people.

Four months ago, I was under some stress and was smoking marijuana weekly, despite it giving me panic attacks. I was foolish and uninformed, and I thought that the each joint would lessen the effects of the previous ones.

Then I smoked two joints in succession in a public place. This was followed by crippling panic attacks for two weeks straight, followed by two months of anxiety.

Now, I'd never been the anxious type. Completely calm, stable, pragmatic, emotionless even. I can/could deal with stress. No history of anything similar in either me or my family. The weed single-handedly triggered all this. Some dormant brain reaction, lurking, waiting for me to be fucking stupid enough to allow it to surface again and again, until it finally takes over completely.

I'd never dealt with anything even remotely similar, so it fucked me up. I felt like a toddler getting blindsided with a tire iron. In the first two weeks, during the panic, I completely lost touch with my old self, while in the following months I was trying to scramble my personality back together. Disorganized, strange thoughts, depersonalization, etc. It still feels like my IQ's dropped by 10 points.

I found this study about people recovering from what I'd experienced - substance-induced psychosis with no prior diagnosis of a psychotic illness. The outcomes weren't... hopeful:

>For this study, the investigators reviewed the long-term outcomes of all persons who received a diagnosis of substance-induced psychosis between 1994 and 2014 and had no prior diagnosis of a psychotic illness — a group of over 6,700 people. The diagnosis of drug-induced psychosis required symptoms lasting at least 48 hours — linked to intoxication with or withdrawal from the drug.

>Over a twenty-year follow-up period, about 41 percent of those who had a psychotic reaction to marijuana developed schizophrenia, and 47 percent developed either schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. About half of those who developed schizophrenia did so within 3.1 years, and half of those who developed bipolar disorder did so within 4.4 years.

Same thing happened to me. Treat the anxiety and stay away from weed. Try some benzos or alcohol (obviously not together) to deal with the physical effects from the anxiety, try meditation or exercise, and/or see a professional about your anxiety.

Last one stopped bumping.

It's been 2 weeks since I started my suboxone taper. I'm doing good. Just taking everything day by day.

I've been in therapy for 1 month already. I've made quite a bit of progress in such little time. I feel better about myself and am becoming emotionally and mentally stable for once in my life. I'm starting to realize my potential as a person who can achieve anything as long as I can see it. Seeing is achieving. The mind is what you create.

Today makes 48 days since starting my taper. 12 days to go until I'm done. I am expecting to have restless legs for a couple weeks post taper. But, I've dealt with this quite a few times already. I can get through it. After that I'm totally clean from opiates and I have so many better reasons this time as to why I can stay sober and clean and never touch another painkiller ever again. I'm pursuing better things in life now and I'm much happier than I was 2 months ago. I'm turning my life around and I'm looking forward to each and every obstacle that comes my way since I'll grow as a person. After getting therapy for the past 2 months I can finally see that I can do anything that I put my mind too as long as I want it bad enough. I can finally see for the first time in over a decade that life has so much to offer.

Wow found out just now that someone I know OD'd. Hes in ICU and is on a respirator and hasn't regained consciousness. 80% chance he will die. It's a sad tragedy. But, he had it coming. I've known this guy for 3 years and now hes gone. What a shame.

This just reinforces the reasons why I decided to get clean and sober. I will never IV or use H or fentanyl. Never done either and I never will. I'm on the right path and after hearing the bad news about my friend it woke me up and opened my eyes. I must get clean and sober and I will.

BWS-ish

Im now in my second week without a true dose of suboxone. I ran out then i found some paper with a lot of residue from crushing suboxone pills on it, and ive been eating one litte piece of that a day (~0.05mg maybe less)

if i could get a few days off work id just stop entirely. but i can feel withdrawals, very minor but i know the feeling and the smell my body makes (or the way my nose perceives it ?). Ive been on Keto diet for 5 days now, eating very healthy to speed up detox, and i went on my second run today. i felt like i was dying, but it was an easier run than the one before it.

feels good to know im going to feel better and no longer be a slave to that orange devil.

Slipped up on my taper. Have been doing 2mg Etizolam a day, 1 in the morning, 1 at night, and trying to minimise (as much..or, little as possible, haha.. Benzo w/d is hell, even when you're just cutting down.
Anyway. I took my 1mg this morning, had a fucked day, and came home with a 6 pack and took 4mg Etiz with my beers. Will not redose again tonight, but shit, how bad did I fuck up my tolerance and inevitable w/d symptoms? I'm fucking terrified.
My only options now are to go to a free clinic. I have no insurance. I could ask for antidepressants to help ease benzo withdrawal symptoms, but does that work?
I withdrew before and wanted to crash my car into a tree or die in my sleep and just never wake up, because the feelings when I wake up are the most unbearable .
Any pharmaceuticals or other substances help get you off the benzo roller coaster? I've been an overindulgent user for years and it's fried my brain. Minor benz use, once a week or so and no blackout moments is safer than where I am. I respect anyone who can control themselves like that over this deadly addiction.

just go back to your routine without thinking much of it. its not great but your still going to be fine on your 1mg twice a day. dont go over that. dont let it happen again. unless your on a very limited supply it wont be a major setback. just try to forget about it.

Hello, me and my friends have happened upon a cheap and easily accessible source of Oramorph.

I was hoping for advice on how oral ROI effects dependence and how much sustained use would be required to develop withdrawal symptoms.

At the moment it is just every now and then at weekends.

I am not opiate naive, however I have never had such amounts available to me

Any advice/experience would be appreciated.

Thanks

By naltrex, I’ll assume you mean naltrexone.

When I was 21 years old, I was in a similar place. Constantly fucking up. Hated getting high. Just wanted it all to be done. I wanted sobriety desperately. I too, had naltrexone on hand. 50mg pills. So I broke the pill up and took about 1/8th of a pill. I waited about 45 minutes, figured it didn’t do anything, and took about 1/4 of a pill. Long story short, I was in the ER within the hour. This was at like 2AM. I’m thinking about trying it again, too. Here I am. In the last 5 years, I’ve relapsed 4 times. Most recently, last Friday. I used for 5 straight days, the last time I dosed was Wednesday at 11:00 AM. I slept great Wednesday night. Tonight... welll sleep isn’t coming so easily. My plan was to take naltrexone on Friday night... I’m reconsidering. But I may take a low dose. My advice for you - continue on extremely low doses (2mg is good) every 4-6 hours. It will put you in more misery, but it will also speed up the process. IMO - it isn’t worth the additional pain.

I actually feel pretty o.k. at the moment and im trying to get rid of cravings by smoking weed, i was drinking like 6-8 5% beers a night and dont really feel any withdrawal. I've been smoking weed and drinking massive amounts of water and its been working pretty good.

im exhausted all the time because my sleep is all jacked up from booze so I have to cut back, also im getting fat

Greetings /detox/.

After really admitting to myself how badly my alcohol addiction was affecting other aspects of my life, I have made a serious decision to stop usage for a while. I am going to document my journey in this thread to amuse the bored, encourage those who may be dealing with similar problems, and to keep myself focused and honest. If I slip up I will be honest as well.

Little background:
>Duration of alcoholism: 8 years
>Frequency of consumption: 5-7 days per week with no period of abstinence longer than 2 days
>Amount consumed per day: ~7oz of ethanol in an evening
>Affected aspects of life: work, school, relationships, hobbies, mental and physical health

I am currently on my fourth day with no alcohol and I am already seeing and feeling notable improvements in my body and mind. I will go over how each day felt.

>First 24 Hours
By far the worst. Not only from the withdrawals, but the knowledge that booze is not coming any time soon. Sweating, shaking hands, lack of appetite, insomnia, flushed skin, increased blood pressure, irritability, dark and disturbing dreams when sleep comes in fits

Why the fuck is drinking so hard to kick? It seems like every day at the same time I get the urge to go out and get the same old 6 pack of pint pabst's and a 22oz of whatever cheap IPA I can find. It's this weird instinct that just seems to hit me that nothing else will satiate. I've got some benzos to help me wean off the booze, but drinking while on them only makes the drunk better...

Regardless, 2 days sober from the booze but I'm worried that the last howevermany years of poly drug abuse have shown me what drug my body crazes the most; and of course it had to be alcohol.
