Against my counslers wishes 21 days ago I detoxed off of methodone. Everyone said I was committing suicide but it was what I had to do. I went through a rough time but everyday is getting better. I see and smell things so differently now. At this point I feel like I am going to make it. I have been coming to this sight for the past week and it's been really helpful. I need all the support I can get. Right now I feel like crap so the urge to use is not as strong, I can barley get out of bed. What I am afraid of is when I am feeling better, I do not want to self distruct. I have come so far and I can not go through that detox again.

Your doing great, kee it up. Can I ask how long were you on Methadone? I have been on it for 27 years and have come down on my dosage but I have a job and I can't just leave for 21 days. Also, for me I don't think it would work, too may years. Be glad you did this now and didn't wait 27 years, Methadone is great for getting people off heronine, but patients should be detoxed once their lives are back on track. I'm 56 years old, do they really Think I am going to use H again? I wouldn't know where to start, nor would I want too. I have a grea life, a good job making 6 figures and a great support system in
AA. KEEP IT UP! YOU CAN DO IT! PRAY ALOT AND GO TO MEETINGS.

finally free,
I detoxed off meth on april 26, 2008. I was on such a small dose there have been no real discomfort but what has helped me the most is prayer, going to meetings and talking about it with my network, and sponsor. stay strong, you have taken a giant step I applaud you.

Good for you! I believe my time is now. It's going on fifteen years of alcohol and drug abuse with about three years of no drug use and no stoping the alcohol other than a month here or there. I attended about thiry AA meetings cout ordered and didn't see myself as one of them. Well I can now admit to myself after this last bender that I am an addict and an alcoholic. I want to be set free and I learned the first step is admitting to yourself of what you are
