  5. How addictive is kratom?

Asked: 2017-10-31 04:53:27

The week my brother left for college I picked up kratom to help me kick from my dope addiction. After hearing things about kratom helping others kick heroin I decided to give it a go, but now im thinking that kratom may be addictive to.

Its definitely addictive. People that use even small doses regularly normally find it quite hard to kick. It changes the brain and users need more and more to get the same effect, so its a lot like heroin or another opiate, its just not quite as addictive. A kratom high feels more like a stimulant or cocaine high, so it can be misleading.

Its not as addictive as some other drugs, but it is a psychoactive substance, and considering that its banned in Thailand in Malaysia, its a fact that its not very good for you. If you use it regularly, youll likely to develop a dependency on it, and although kratom effects when youre high are quite pleasant, the withdrawal includes involuntary shakes, muscle spasms, aggression and runny nose.

Even though kratom has helped other with the withdrawal of opiates it is adddicting. It may not be as addictive as heroin per say but kratom nonetheless is addictive in its own way.

Its pretty potent stuff. Many people use it to come off opioids but then they find that theyve actually become addicted to this plant. You often take it in a tea, so youre not quite sure how much youre having and you can build up a tolerance to it fairly quickly with people saying around 6 months on average. So, then you have to try and come off it. There are no scientific studies to say that it helps with other addictions, so its best not to go near it. Behavioral therapy is seen as the only way to beat it right now, so if you feel like youve build up a tolerance, speak to a local clinic about treatment and see what they have to offer.

Well, kratom withdrawal is definitely a thing people are being treated for it more and more regularly, and its hard to give up, so it stands to reason that this a drug you can definitely get addicted to. It may not be as bad as the others, but its sure not good!

It seems plausible to reach to kratom instead of going through the process of kicking dope, but due to kratom having addictive qualities too, it might not be a good idea to trade one addictive drug for another one.
