quitting opiates cold turkey- on day 3 - Part 14

By smith9666 · Nov 22, 2014 · ·
  1. That is something I am learning more and more with this. Im struggling with not over thinking how I feel and making sure I am still taking care of myself. Its easier for me to just say I'm fine and deal with it then it is to try to explain how I feel and deal with those feelings. I think that's why I like to run. Its for some reason the only time I can think clearly without feeling like i am over reacting to anything LOL.

    Smith,

    You suppressed feelings with the opiates. Now these will bubble to the surface. Running to relieve emotional pressure is a great coping skill. Keep using it! I find music to really help keep my mood where it needs to be. I put on my headphones and just relax into the music. There is something therapeutic about it. Eat well and try to get good sleep. Your body will put itself back together....just take it one day at a time, one minute at a time.

    Love to you,
    JD

    Yea any sort of exercise is good, when I quit heroin and methadone I was fucked for weeks but in the end I forced myself to do more and more starting with little walks and eventually working out a bit, I started using my old punch bag again and that really helped.

    Sorry if you've already posted and I've missed it but how is your back pain now?
    How has stopping the pills affected you in regards to your original pain?
