Well, there are a lot of posts here, but very little useable information. What sassy and routemaster have said are all excellent suggestions! As was suggested, you can either go cold turkey
or do a taper of varying lengths. both methods have their benefits and their drawbacks, so it is really up to the individual and how much pain they are capable of or willing to put up with.
Do you have a doctor? if not, you might consider getting one. If you can afford a gram or so a day for several months, you should be able to swing a doctor visit or two. Be honest and tell them that you have an addiction
and you want help. Look around in your local community for a group like NA, or CBT, if you don't like the NA concept. They are all free, and they WILL help you, if you make the effort. Find others who have quit, and ask them how they did it! Develop a support system of people who don't use, so when you feel weak, you have someone to turn too. Check the resources in your community, quite often you can get help, including medical help, through your local community resource office or the local public health/public aid office.
NSAID's, such as naproxen, might help. Valerian tea, or Valerian mixed with Chamomile. Anti-anxiety drugs
, especially those with a sedative component, have been used by some with a degree of success, as has marijuana
. Good nutrition is important, as that is often lacking in long-term meth
runs. As are fluids and vitamins, especially amino acids. Melotonin has been known to help in some cases. Long-term, you will be wanting to get on a good SSRI
or SNRI such as Cymbalta
to help in the mid-PAWS
As far as "real" vs. "synthetic", the odds are that it is "real" in the way you mean the term, it just might be a different variety than you are accostomed to. There are various "testing kits
" available either through local vendors or on-line which, when used correctly, will give you at least an indication of what the drug
in question is-or more importantly, what it is not! remember, the higher quality testing device you use, the more accurate your results will be. This will inform you of whether or not your particular product is "real" or "synthetic". A quicker way is to think back and try to remember if your dealer ever told you that a "new batch" or "some really GOOD stuff" was coming in, and it would be "different" somehow. if so, that might be a transition point from when they went from a real product to a synthetic one.
