Kratom Withdrawal 7 month Addiction - Part 4

By Wellcompletions · Mar 17, 2015 · ·
  1. On day 7 now

    Day 6: (yesterday obviously) I was starting to feel exponentially better. The restlessness in my torso and arms has virtually diminished. In the early evening ~5pm I began to feel some soreness/tightness in my mid back. I took a couple aleve and worked around the house a little bit. Sat down to watch tv around 8pm and it seemed to help the achy back a lot. Fell asleep around 10:30pm and slept through the night for the most part.

    Day 7: Woke up feeling pretty much back to normal. My back feels fine, I'm not restless, I'm hungry, I'm able to sit in one position for normal periods of time. This is definitely a vast improvement over days 1-5, especially 1-4. Cravings have been minimal, I think this is partially because I've spent so much time drilling the fact that I'll never do this to myself again into my head. I have to imagine that I've ruined myself for future heart surgeries though and that I'll definitely go through withdrawal after the extended periods during which I'll be on relatively high doses of narcotic pain relievers. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

    I dont believe that I'm suffering from PAWS. If anything, just some exhaustion but it's negligible. I Believe it's now time to re-learn how to enjoy things without kratom and getting back to a normal, happy life with my fiancé, family, and friends.

    Hello, Wellcompletion.

    You are an invaluable resource for all that read this thread. Your words ring true, for not only me, but for all that you are experience in this process of withdrawal.

    Please be strong and "Use Your Tools" (so to speak.)

    Opiate acting drugs, cause opiate withdrawal. My advice is to make a commitment to understand how these drugs are overcome!

    Way to go! Thanks for posting your journey. The couple times I've gone through kratom withdrawl, I felt pretty much normal by day 5 or so. Those first 4 days were uncomfortable, but not unbearable.
