  1. GDW,

    I appreciate the support. I slept 6 hours last night b/c of the Ambien. This morning I had the sweats, some chills, and low grade anxiety. The usual opiate BS. It has been about 27 hours since my last Oxy so it will get worse I suspect. Going to wait a little to take the Kratom. Maybe lunchtime.

    I hope you are doing well. Will check in later.

    PS. major cravings!!!!

    Took 4 grams of Kratom at 1pm. Seemed to alleviate most symptoms. No need for any benzos today so far. WDs suck. Definitely still having cravings, major ones. Just toughing it out.

    I found a small dose of kratom took care of cravings. Honestly for me this plant it quite helpful and forgiving. To me using kratom is better and safer than relapsing on oxycodone. Just use the kratom as you need to to get off the opiates, then taper the kratom. You will be amazed how easy it can be to simply reduce and spread the doses. Kratom has played an important role in me regaining control. Just do not use it to chase a high.

    Hello Heisenberg,

    You are doing great!! You are not a wimp. These drugs are very psychologically addicting as well. In fact, that is what most people seem to experience is the craving, even after the physical withdrawal is over.

    I am not strong at all. Circumstances led to me going c/t off oxycodone. O was trying to taper and finding that hard. These pills have a way of becoming your whole life after many years. Believe me, if I had an oxy I would have taken it by now.

    I am so glad you got some sleep. It helps with so much. I think maybe I got some crummy kratom. It just doesn't help the w/d symptoms much at all. This is my first time ever using it. Maybe I should order some Bali from another vendor.

    I hope you have a great day and hang in there. GDW
