Thanks Fastfifty! I think it's important to get to the right mental state to be ready to quit. I have successfully w/d-ed from heroin before so I understand what it's like to w/d from a stronger substance, and I know that methadone is one of the worst. I know you can do it - and you should believe it too.
I looked at it from a logical standpoint; You will have to endure a couple weeks of discomfort to literally get your life back. The juice is worth the squeeze so to speak. Try and imagine yourself opiate-free and in a good mind-state: Happy with your life, feeling good and doing all the things you have been missing out on. I think projecting to yourself how you will feel and what you will accomplish after you are free of opiates is very helpful! I also think opiates made me pretty irritable; I was always thinking about how I needed more etc.
I don't know if this happens to others when they are past acute withdrawal, but I have been more motivated than ever to be the best version of myself possible. I can't and won't waste my potential ever again! I'm kicking ass in all facets of my life, and for that, maybe I can actually thank opiates a little.
