I dont know if i missed it or what but i have to disagree with you ALL! Absolutley nothing, and i mean nothing compares to a simple opiate withdrawal. Wether its oxycontin, vicodin, percoset, ultram, ms contine, and the most famous HEROIN, or any other opiate i forgot to mention. I had a bad habit starting with percosets yo high dosages of oxycontin, and recently HEROIN....damn devil...Anyways I got myself into rehab and started on a maitenence drug called Suboxone (bupe) if any of you know what that is. Its a orange pill you take daily to demolish withdrawal symptoms immediatly and it kills all cravings. I havent had an erge to go out with the trouble makers and touch dope for a good 13 months, got back into bodybuilding, and now living the healthy lifestyle i once had before i made the mistake of popping my first pill. Painkillers are so dangerous, i cant even explain. Because of my poor decisions when i was younger...I am now stuck taking this Suboxone for a long time...maybe the rest of my life and im only 23. If i could only go back. However since starting this new med my life has changed dramatically for the best. My attitude is great, im acully saving money for the first time in years. Finished college and got a great job. No more stealing or hustling and im proud of myself... Someday i would love to wean off this medication but its just as hard as any other opiate so it will take alot...Please all, take my advice and stay away from opiates. Benzo withdrawals arnt half as hard coming off than any opiate is. After close friends dying from suicide because they wouldnt take the withdrawals, overdosages...Its just not worth it. Sorry for babbling, just hope i got some points through...TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
