Thanks for the background info on your usage history. I am not in the same place as you. I have been acting like a wimp to be direct. This morning at 7am I did 45mg of Oxy. I know I need to jump but sometimes I feel like I am one of those skydivers that needs to be pushed out of the plane.
I am glad to hear you are off the Oxy and have switched to Kratom. From what I have researched, most people find a Kratom taper results in a much more manageable withdrawal once a person jumps off. Since you have been on opiates so long, I think you will need to do a relatively long taper. That said, I would rather use Kratom than Suboxone. I did a Sub taper to clean once. It took a looooooong time and at the end when I jumped, I was still uncomfortable for a few days. To me, Kratom seems like a more natural option and has a much shorter half-life, so at the end, the residual WDs shouldn't last a long time.

Finally jumped yesterday at 7am. It is now 12:13am. Still doing ok. Took an Ambien to calm the anxiety and to hopefully catch some sleep. Tomorrow should be rough. There is no going back to Oxy. It is Kratom from here on out. Wish me luck!
