I just want to be done before I'm dead. I have 6 bags n a week to do this.plz help me. I am starting to feel the wrath of the heroin leaving my body. I've felt fullblown withdrawal before. I don't ever want to feel that way again!! But i don't want to do anymore dope after these bags. Suggestions anyone?? TIA

how much money is one of your bags? and how much weight is inside? I am asking so I can convert to English measures . Here we are buying £10 , £20 or £50 , £10 is usually 1 hit and £50 is 1.2 grams whicch means you get about 7 or 8 hits ... do you plan to taper down injecting or smoking? your habit how big it is? How long you are addicted on heroin? I stopped but with methadone, I am not enough of character to taper down heroin

Hey girrl....
So...tapering ...you got 6 bags for the whole week ? Then your gonna have to cut your dose in half...then half again...or approximately. ..or shoot in more intervals with less...don't know your regular habit...so only you'll know how much you'll need to stay in the game....you have anything you can supplement with ? Cuz no matter how you taper it your gonna feel the hollow at some point...and your gonna deal with the rattle no matter what...cuz when the dope is gone...it's gone....might have an easier rattle somewhat if you've tapered well...but I kind of know how that might go....anyways....the rattle going to happen no matter how well you wean or taper...just a degree of how bad...uyou know you can always check in at hospital or a detox and get the methadone and meds for a few days ....I understand the fear...detox from dope is a nightmare ....I've used codien to detox and whatever else I could find to get through....got myself down as far as I could before I ran out...good news is its only a few days in the deep before your free....good luck...safe detox....

I am sorry to tell you but you ccant avoid feeling withdrawal symptoms once your run out of heroin, probably wont be bad as it was before but you will have to go trough few days of misery , of course painkillers and sleeping pills(if you can get any) plus eat and drink , take hot baths (they do help) , get enough films to watch, books to read, music to listen and make sure you dont need to go out (so you are not tempted to buy and use)

as Con said if your symptoms get bad you check in hospital for detox, here in London we can get 10 days detox with methadone, they start with 15 mills then 20, 25, 30 then you go down 5 mills every day. I done it without problem 7,8 years ago but at the time didnt have methadone habit and didnt get one from detoxing 10 days so no fear using methadone if is only 10 days time

I would say on our habit is more similar then not :) I was told I have addictive personality and I am indulging myself with whatever I like from drugs to ice cream ... I buy like 4,5 bags to use 1 each day of course I always end up using 2 or more, no much self control

Hi, I am new to this forum and I have been through hell being a heroin addict, and living the lifestyle needed in order to afford such a habit. I am in the process of writing my memoir series, as one book can not describe a lifelong addicts experiences. I am recovered and have been for many years. I have four books out right now and available on Amazon. There will be six to the series. I am available for questions on recovery, or if you want to read my books, to see what eventually will happen to you, if you continue using heroin or other drugs. Please take your life seriously, because I promise you, it is so much better when you stop using drugs.

I broke out into a cold sweat, and tried to cry. The tears would not fall, because I knew in my heart, that I had no one to blame for my situation but myself. I came from a good, loving family. I was never beaten or abused. We went on family vacations every summer. My childhood years could not have been more perfect. What was wrong with me?

I looked closely into the mirror, and saw the dark circles beneath my eyes. I was underweight, and my long blonde hair was thinning. I looked away from the mirror quickly, and sat on the cold, tile floor of this cheap motel bathroom.

My hand shook a bit as I held the spoon full of heroin. I cooked it up with a blue lighter. I dropped in a small piece of cotton, and drew up the liquid with a syringe. I injected the heroin, and fell slowly back against the wall. The tile was no longer cold, and life did not seem so hopeless anymore.

Sweet Melissa is an ongoing memoir series. It is the author's story about her life-long struggle with addiction to heroin, her downward spiral towards self destruction, and finally her recovery. Follow the author down the dark path of substance abuse and the lifestyle that goes with it.

In Book One, the author gets involved with prostitution and drugs. She encounters a variety of people, and finds herself addicted to heroin. With that addiction, she falls deeper and deeper into a hole of which she believes will never end. Her self-esteem diminishes, and her life seems worthless.

This is a life-long struggle with substance abuse leading to the one event that will finally end it all. This is not a few month habit, but rather a way of life with no other choice at the time. Heroin and substance abuse cloud the mind from thinking properly. It deadens the senses and the soul. It puts you in places you could never imagine in your wildest dreams.

Follow the Sweet Melissa series to find out what life changing event will finally open the author's eyes, and shine some hope on her for a brighter future. This is a memoir straight from the heart of the finally recovered. amazon.com/author/susansegoviamunoz
