  5. What are the withdrawal symptoms?
Asked: 2018-01-01 08:11:10
I started using heroin and fentanyl with my mom on my 18th birthday. She thought that because I was an adult, I was finally old enough to try some of the things with her. She kept saying if I was can it do it, I might as well do it with her, so she’d feel better about it. Well, now I’m 25 and not a day goes by that I don’t use. I’m a pretty severe heroin addict, but I don’t want to turn out like my mom and I really need to quit. What will the withdrawal symptoms be like?

Heroin withdrawals aren’t fun. You can expect to feel sick to your stomach, vomit, have cold chills, be really shaky, and have a hard time sleeping. One thing that a lot of people don’t know about is the restless leg syndrome. That can last after the first symptoms go away. If it’s too bad, go and talk to a doctor about trying something like methadone or Suboxone. These drugs can help people who are addicted to opiates to stop using.

I’m really sorry that you got pulled into your mom’s bad habits. It’s really sad when parents think that it’s okay for children to drink or use drugs as long as it’s with them. Unfortunately, heroin withdrawals are pretty gnarly. You’re probably going to throw up a lot, feel really achy, and shake. Your best bet is to go up to the hospital and ask them what you can do. Normally if you’re honest, they’re willing to hook you up with a good rehab. You should feel better in about a week.
