How To Wean Off Opiates

A user was using for months, tried quitting cold turkey with violent, terrible, horrible withdrawal symptoms that finally tapered off, but left with depression. So user went back to using, tried quitting again but this time administered small doses to ward off the withdrawal symptoms, which worked wonderfully. User was very happy about this, though endorphin deficiency sydrome haunted still. A full dependancy on Almighty Creator Father, St. Johns Wort extract along with exercise remedied this and user is a balanced happy person and free of drugs now.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing this! I'm glad the "user" was able to successfully wean off the opiates and find a way to incorporate exercise and herbal supplements for health and happiness. :)

I just thought I'd ask, was he/she under the care of a doctor while weaning off? For those who aren't aware, it's very important that anyone who is trying to break free from an addiction problem seek the advice of a doctor and be under supervision. Withdrawal can be a very scary and possibly fatal process if not pursued with the utmost care.

Does anyone else have an experience to share, or any information regarding the opiate withdrawal process?
