Roger Bacon tries to be witty and fails


« on: January 16, 2013, 02:37:44 PM »

I know a person that abused drugs for a few years (opiates), than saw something that scared them and quit without rehab or any kind of detox or whatever.  They were sick as fuck for a day, but than, over it completely.

It's been a few years and this person hasn't touched any drugs.



How can that work?  I was just watching something on TV that made me curious about it?

I thought you generally had to come off slowly, maybe get some counseling, etc...

Huh

Depends on what they were on, how long, focus and will power.  But generally yes, you should get counseling to address the underlying problem and taper if you were on a high dosages of whatever you're abusing.

Depends on the drug used, doses and the period of time they took them. Opiates you can get really sick from withdrawals but unless you have some underlying health condition it won't kill you....alcohol and benzos you have to be careful with.

He's probably not being honest about only feeling effects for a day. In the end it ends up being a mind over matter to be able to stop cold turkey.

I quit the booze cold turkey style, the first 7 days I wanted to kill something just to watch it die. After that it wasn`t as bad.

I've done it, after being a serious IV heroin/methadone abuser for years. It's much longer than a day depending on how long he used. I was terribly sick for weeks and not right for almost a year after I stopped. I also quit a serious meth habit prior to that... Which was a walk in the park compared to quitting opiates.

I guess it was a lot of Vicodin and the like.  They abused it heavily for at least four years.  I heard from someone that quitting Opiates cold turkey can kill you, so I guess I just kind of wondered how they accomplished quitting cold turkey.

Ohh, I see...


Do people commonly do this?  After watching so many rehab shows, and hearing so many horror stories it just seems pretty bizarre that someone could do that.

Quitting opiates cold turkey cannot kill you. I quit cold turkey and I'm just fine, and I was using an 8ball a day (on the low side, if I had money I was using almost a quarter a day). The only drugs that can kill you from the W/D's are alcohol and benzos.

Damn, congratulations!

Did anyone see that show with Laura Line about all the "Pill Mills" in Florida?  I guess people from the Midwest go down there and get all kinds of pills from doctors that will give you a prescription for anything?


I think it's insane how everyone is so hung up on Marijuana while people are legally abusing drugs like Oxycontin (with a doctors consent) that actually are dangerous.

Again, it boggles my mind the damage Doctors can legally do with Prescription Pain Killers and all the other chemicals they give out.  All the while Marijuana scares the hell out of people.

Truly a miracle. I have no respect for drug addicts but all the respect in the world for a drug addict that quit, not an easy feat by any means.

Those pill mills in Florida you're talking about are and experiment by the Hierarchy. I've even heard rumors that some higher ups from Harvard medical are the ones behind the experiment.

Whats the experiment? That people will go and pay money to get handed pharmaceutical grade opiates and benzos? Lol, I think they could have figured that one out on their own.
