    About this book:
    This book is written for people who are thinking about or trying to stop using amphetamines, even if just for a short period of time. Information in this book will help you understand what's going on during withdrawal. There are also suggestions for how you can make it easier for yourself, and those around you. It is only a guide. For more help, we suggest that you talk to your doctor, counsellor or other health worker.

    This book doesn't cover everything about coming off amphetamines - you may have had experiences that are different to those included here. We hope that there are things you find helpful, even if you have gone through withdrawal before. You can use this book as one of a range of strategies to help you make the decision to stop using and support you through withdrawal. Other options that may be useful include counselling, medication, natural therapies, and involvement in support groups.

    Just what I've been looking for.. It's an excellent guide (20 pages). It describes what to expect but also provides open space where you can write down stuff to make it more personal- and maybe more effective.

    Thank you very much for sharing this document![/COLOR]
