  5. What do heroin withdrawals feel like?
Asked: 2018-03-17 02:54:22
My son is a teenager who has sadly gotten involved in heroin. I want him to get clean, but he keeps saying he can’t make it through the withdrawals. What are some of the symptoms he will experience?

Unfortunately for your son, heroin withdrawal is no fun. I know because I’ve been through it myself. He should prepare for things like runny nose, nausea, vomiting, fever and insomnia. Once you get through those first few really bad days, then it will get easier.

When your son goes through withdrawal, he may feel very depressed and anxious. He will also feel sick, nauseous and very uncomfortable. It’s important though that he goes through this physical pain to make it to the other side and achieve a sober life!
