I’m gonna give up H, once and for all. I’m a bit scared of coming off it, how’s it going to feel?

Heroin withdrawal is tough, but it means you’re gonna live. You’ll go into withdrawal in less than a day and you’ll have a few days where you’re really sick so make sure you have supportive people round you.

The feelings from heroin withdrawal dont really matter when you are going through it. I cant only remember feeling like this was the last day I would breath life. It was the worst thing ive ever gone through. I wouldnt suggest going through this order alone. Let me suggest you get some real help.

Heroin withdrawal feels like death. My craveings for more heroin after I detoxed where stronger than anything I have ever felt. I would have rather died than having such strong cravings, eventually they did die down. But it was tough for about a year.

I could not tell you from experience what heroin withdrawal feels like, but says heroin withdrawal symptoms may only last about a week or so and include nausea, agitation, abdominal pain, depression, sweating, shaking, nervousness, muscle spasms, and cravings. Medical detox providers use medications and therapy to soothe these symptoms. I can only imagine the withdrawal wouldnt be as bad under a professionals care.

I’m not going to lie, the first week will feel like hell. The shakes, puking, diarrhea, and you will definitely crave it. You can get into a programme that will make it a bit easier on you.

I can not imagine going through withdrawal of any kind, but heroin I can guess would be one of the worst drugs to withdrawal from. I certainly would not withdrawal on my own. Seeking help greatly increases your chance in achieving sobriety. You need therapy, medication, support groups and life changes. Explains why these things are needed. It can take weeks for your body to readjust to living without heroin. And true to its name it can also help you find the best rehab for you.
