agree about leaving your circles of friends who still may use. it's too much of an influence and temptation. as for antioxidants it's true, make sure you are getting in proper nutrition. orange juice is a great source of vitamin c BUT the caveat is, the acidity may be harsh on your stomach if it's empty so make sure you eat carbs too
Hey guys. I am currently supppppeerrrr dope sick and do not want to use any more. I am trying to do this cold turkey at home. I have crazy hot and cold sweats right now. I have not slept in almost 48 hours. My back and legs are killing me. I have read stuff all over the internet and nothing seems to be working for home remedies for heroin withdrawal. IF anyone out there has some suggestions pleasssseeeee help me. I feel like I am drying right now and I can't do this anymore. HELP!
I really feel this. I almost relapsed the other week and I was so disappointed in myself even if I didn't. It was like a combination of feeling disappointed that I didn't take the drugs, and feeling disappointed that I even go so close to relapsing. But I need to tell myself that if I get high I will feel AWFUL during the comedown. And really angry with myself. It's a bad cycle.
I think fighting an addiction and fighting off cravings doesn't get any easier, there will be that tinge every so often to go back to your old habits. You have to remember who you are staying sober for - your family, your friends, and most of all yourself.
It does indeed help to go to meetings. It at least keeps me out of my "head" which helps fight the demons inside it. I think you should look into a local support group or some recreational therapy like nearby hiking trails. You can and WILL fight these demons!
I’m just trying to be a better son, brother, friend, employee, but it’s so hard when youre stuck in that water. Ive been trying to learn how to live with my demons. I think I’m falling in love with my demons. Is that bad? I’m sober from my doc for a week now, it almost feels kinda good for a change. But I still am fighting my urge to constantly be high or drunk. Today was a really good day and I didn’t even care if I got high, it kind of feels like the beginning of a breakup. But then she’ll tell me she’s there and I’ll come running back. Fuckn dangerous. I’m just lost right now. Sorry, hope you all are doing good.
