    JD, I'm still using the clonidine and Alimemazine but am now only using 0.5mg clonidine and 20mg of the other. Intend to reduce this again in the next few days.

    Lostly, thanks again :) I'm still waiting though, don't keep the boy waiting to long.

    Bobes. I think I miscalculated. I think today is day 32 of starting the detox which would make today about day 27 off the opiates. As to when I last had a clean day well that would have been last year just after my last detox before I relapsed. Before that I'm not sure, I had a few failed detoxes over the last few years and got a handful of clean days along the way.

    PAWS is pretty non-exsistant. It's crazy, it's like the time was right because I've never detoxed and felt mentally this good. Very little anxiety which was my main worry. No depression so far.
    Those two things are usually my main problem.

    Last year was fucked up but this year things are much better. Breaking up with my ex was so hard to do but now we're used to it and things are more settled for my daughter it's all good. Also work prospects are good which they were not last year. I was really enjoying college and dropping out was really hard. Plus the death of my friend, I was in a bad place and fighting a losing battle.

    I still feel very weak but I think this is more to do with the flu than anything else. i started work yesterday, got 4 hours done and was fucked. Crawled home into bed. I'm clearing a garden, cutting trees and digging routes so I can fix the neighbors fence. It's back breaking and I feel like I'm wearing A lead suit. I've been slugging on this morning and just stopped for some food and a rest. Been swinging an axe and a pick axe all morning, and I ache!

    Hi Mr Bumble. You feeling any better? I just read some of this and I'm happy for you that you've been drug free for days.

    Keep on!

    Also to JD, what about sedating antihistamines, anti emetic types? I take some now and then to help with nausea (opiates do cause me some nausea) or sleeplessness (I won't until I feel my worst in my taper, if at all).

    Hi Bumble, the fitness thing will come my friend but may take a little time. I managed to take a front door off yesterday and plane it to fit. Heavy as Feck and it was old slotted screws as well. You know the ones that never come out ?? Bastards. I wasn't looking forward to it because I am weak also but I did it. I think all the walking and a few weights has helped along with good food.

    Four hours in the garden yesterday for you, brilliant. Do a few more and watch that strength return mate. Just try and do what you can and it will come mate.

    Congrats on day 33 or something. Top job mate. Thanks for posting on my thread, I appreciate your support.

    Keep going, I am living proof it does get better.

    Respect Mono
