Reader Recovery Stories
I’m fortunate to have run across your site. Your encouragement and info has
been a gateway to freedom. I have a wife and three children. Those meds are
horrible i been using for about 2 years Norco 10s maybe about 6 a day
sometimes more. I’m on my third day and it’s a working progress but it
isn’t the first time of quiting. This round since I’ve used your info it
definitely helped with the WD. Like i said it’s a working progress so I’ll
reply again in the later days. Thanks man
Hello Reilly, my name is Jason and I am a former heroin addict. I got into
a methadone program and found myself at 110mg daily. I knew I hadnt fixed
my problem when I realized that I was nodding off at work due to my dose. I
am an electrician by trade and became fearful for my safety and for those
around me. I began withdrawal at 1mg per day I am now down to 7mg. Its been
fast but with no real problems except for sneezing fits up till last night.
I began feeling bad leg cramps and couldn’t sleep for anything. I have no
fear of relapse. I burned my suppliers without risk of retribution and
erased every other contact. I refuse to speak with anyone at the clinic
besides my counselor and all the other patients think im a narc or that i
think I am better than them. I prefer it that way.
I read your pdf last night and bought some 5-htp today. I have become
irritable and snap about trivial matters.
I am going to follow your other advice and hopefully someday I can come
full circle and help others too but as of now I need to work on me.
My fiance is great and our 3 month old son is a hoot. She understands what
im going through. Although she has never used she has witnessed my ups and
downs. I spent 5 years of my life in prison only to get home and relapse
within a year. I am now off parole and am doing well. I have resolved never
to use again. My family means more to me than a fix and I mean more to
myself today as well. I am tired. Ive had enough. Hopefully with your tips
my next month wont be hell.
#1 gain another view point and further my tool box for advice to others.
#2 Just having a surgery and knowing that I will get prescribed what ever I ask for (largely due to my MD. Bieng of long history and very knowledgeable of my will power) again faced with a miserable experience of going through the detox period.
This tidbit of advice I would not agree with more! I have been a rock climber going on 25+ years along with working in a field where life and death decisions have to be made with a clear and vigilant mentality. When a quick detox and/or copeing mechanism or (plan) Is a must.
Exercise even though it will hurt has all ways worked to speed the effects brought on by the side effects of reconnecting the neurological connections.Good advice. Thanks for what you are doing.Jeff D.

it. I’m currently on day 9 of a self-imposed opiate withdrawl. The VA
prescribed these meds for pain 3 years ago, and I know longer wanted to
waste a day of my life feeling sick. My second request would be for more
stories or testimonials about people who became physically dependent rather
than mentally dependent on opiates. Thanks, and thanks for all that you do
to help people struggling with these toxic, life destroying pills.
It’s that I have spine damage a broken neck and leg , and a long list do
disease like degenerative joint disease , osteoarthritis along with
horrible cramps in my Back .
Years of opeate use has made them barely work I’m now on fentenyl patches
And oxycodone, I’m in much pain and the doctors won’t raise the dose to
compensate for tolerance , so I was searching for ways to improve or
restore my levels of necessary pain fighting components from my side
naturally. I haven’t read your info yet but welcome any input I might get
that would be for my use or purpose , I will have to take opiates lifelong
so I respect them and need all the help I can get to keep them working
correctly, I am taking several other methods of pain releif. Other than
opiates , like Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Baclofen, I do run out at times so
it’s good to know how to lessen the sickness that is really bad for me
after 10 years of narcodics use , Thank You , James Harness
and advice now about 3 weeks, and I can honestly say I’m a new man. I
really have changes my view on this issue as, not one of addiction, but one
of some degree of void in life. Whether it be satisfaction, happiness,
joy, whatever…the addiction is not the issue it’s much deeper than that,
and you are showing us ways to make change at the root cause. I’m sure
you’ve been to your share of na and aa meetings and their system is
structured all wrong, not to mention one of the best places to buy drugs.
I want to help spread what you’re doing to the recovering and afflicted
masses. I have a lot of experience marketing, and in general business.
Please let me know if we can talk further (and I’m talking pro bono of
have a wonderful nephew named Riley, he is very special also! I am a
62yr old woman with degenerative disc disease and advanced arthritis,
that causes me great discomfort. I started taking perscription
oxycodone about 3yrs ago for pain. Since then I have become an
emotional baskit case…..deppression,anxiety,
sadness. I find it very hard to get through the day….to work any
amount of hours….life feels very hopeless. My fear of getting off
the oxy, is will I be able to with stand the pain? Is it possible to
repair the receptors, get my brain working properly again, while still
taking the pain medication? It seems unlikely to me…but I thought
that if you know differently it could save my life. I can only hope
and pray that you might find the time to answer my question….I know
that you must be a very busy person,not to mention extremely blessed.
Thank you for all of your hard work to find a way to help others!!! I
will read all of the information I received from you, and hope to hear
from you in response to my concern. Thank you Reilly…and god bless
you. Lianne L.

Thank you so much for your dedication to helping people get free from the bondage of addiction.I found your website while looking for any information on home remedies to help ease withdrawal symptoms. My son and his fiancee just spent the past week camped out on my livingroom floor going cold turkey from heroin. My son had just started shooting up and the girlfriend snorted or occasionally smoked. She seems to have turned the corner but not my son yet.Three trips to the ER in a week and the day coming home from the last ER trip, after having stayed up all night with him, he decided he was no longer chemically dependent, he could no longer “stand to be in the same house as me” and he was well enough to go home.You and I both know what that means…he’s itching to use and he instigated a blowout with me so when he relapses he’ll have someone already lined up to put the blame on.My question to you is this: do you have any info or suggestions for the addict’s support system? Do’s and Don’ts? My greatest concern is not only for him but his fiancee. She’s still very physically weak and he is quite capable of wearing her out while trying to take care of him.Any help is greatly appreciated!
a long and challenging struggle but I’m very dedicated. Thank you again.
medical problem which I didn’t even have come to find out anyway long story

the phenibut but as they wear off I go into withdrawals I know it just

trying Kratom for the first time, along with the other items, and I really
think it will help. It’s really cool of you to provide this for free to
people who have to go through it because it’s usually pretty uncomfortable.Thanks again and take care!
my accounts and really other than a few aches and pains and diarrhea and
upset stomach haha everything seems to be going great thanks for the emailThank You!
It is Sept. 28 and things are really good. I emailed you on sept. 4 letting
you know that I had found your web site and was going down a road of
recovery. First I would like to say that I’ve been on the web looking for
answers and hoping for a quick fix but I’ve found your site and reality had
kicked in. The Bible tells us that we reap what we sow (so true) as with
anything you must have a plan in order for success. Your site has enabled
me to do that. After I took your info and set a plan and went with it there
was many many times I didnt think I was gonna make it. My wife was my
accountability partner that was much needed. I knew that I would be honest
If she asked and you better believe she was going to ask. However I pushed
through, for the first time I was able to see how much opiates had control
of your mind and after stopping how it wasent just physical but mental as
well. Each time we submit ourselves to a right path and push through it
develops a stronger character within us. I’ve been around the pain meds the
whole time and had fairly easy access to them with my recovery but I
figured if I couldnt be true to myself then how would this leave me in the
future. I dont know if you believe in God but I sure do and with having
said that I think that many Christians have it wrong they (including myself
at one time) think that God should clap and there problems are over. I
believe through reading the scriptures that God uses people like yourself
who have a heart for others to reach out and be the miracle or blessing for
someone. I figure you probably have a ton of emails so I’ll keep this short
I really wanted to thank you for your heart and concerns for others. My
prayers are for you reach many more people from your site and lead them
Thanks my brotherBrianMUCH MORE COMING SOON…
