Didn’t read through the thread, but want you guys that have an addiction to know this... my uncle started off on pills. Moved to heroin. Lost a good job and two kids due to the mother’s not wanting them around him. Fought it for over 15 years going to rehabs and halfway houses. Finally got sober for 2.5 years and relapsed one night and they found his body in his car the next morning.

I sit here, weeks later still crying every night for him. He was 18 months older than me and my idol growing up. When he got sober, I felt like we could conquer the world. Now everyone that tried to help and loved him sits here wondering what more we could have done. Hurt. Confused,

Don’t put your family through this. Get help. Know that those trying to help love you. Don’t leave this world losing that battle. Fight it and win.

I use Kratom now to get off of the Tramadol I was taking for neck pain (herniation between C6/C7). I know it's trading one substance for another but to be honest, after having been on the Tramadol's for 5-6 years, I figured it was time to get away from the pharmaceuticals and opt for something more "natural".

Honestly, Kratom has been godsend for us. My wife used to have horrible panic attacks (life debilitating) and the only thing that has quelled the anxiety and panic has been a very reasonable regiment of Kratom every day (~10-12g per day). Unfortunately it has it's own issues with withdrawals ect so it's not perfect but it beats needing to get a bunch of Rx's from the doc every month.

Wait you've been a corona skeptic and you're on pills? Please stay in the house! Not sure what you're into, but benzos and opioids will lower your immune response and are correlated to higher risk for pneumonia especially. Understandable that it'll be tough to kick in a time like this, but please don't take unnecessary risks to score or for any other reason.

This really had me going. I'm for one sorry that it happened but more saddened that you can't find any peace.

Some folks seem to but I haven’t needed more than my 10-12g/day for the last few years.

I think it’s like anything else...if you searching for that high (kratom does have a little bit a of high of you take more than your accustomed to), you’ll always need a little more to get there. If you’re just trying to maintain a level of pain/anxiety management, you don’t need to keep going up. You simply take what you need and move with your day.

I think I am going to quit pills this week on my days off. Noticed today I needed one to not be half asleep so that isn't good. Whenever I feel that I take a week or 2 off so the withdrawals don't get out of hand.
anyone else have a pill problem or cigarettes or shooting fentanyl?

You should try Transcendental Meditation for a better high.

No bueno. Are they stable now? I have a friend who tried I'm always worried about.
I dont really know. We been getting along great. I saw no signs. Wasn't like we weren't talking and didn't see any more depression than usual. Kind of made me feel alone. She had tried it before but things were going very badly. This was odd. Trying not to be pissed at her but not easy. Don't know-how to handle it.

It’s easy to get angry but understand that they may be living with a dark cloud over everything they see/feel day in and day out. After years of that it becomes very difficult to see your way out of the fog. Continue to be the friend they need right now.
