Addiction is just part of who I am and the thoughts of changing scare me, but I know that if I don’t I’ll probably die. Does anyone know how long it takes, really, or is it different for everyone?

It is a little different for everyone, but getting into a good rehab program helps and if you can stay clean for 90 days, you’ll notice a huge improvement in your life.

It depends on whether you’re addicted to one substance or more, and also which ones. Coming off benzo’s can take a month, whereas getting over heroin will be around a week. The cravings last longer of course, but you can go to counseling to help.
