    i agree entirely, i object to the NA/AA view about the addiction being a disease…

    in my case the underlying cause was my undiagnosed aspergers syndrome, all those years spent struggling to try and fit in to a society that didn’t make any sense to me at all…

    all i experienced was terrible anxiety and depression when trying to be ‘normal’ like what i thought everyone else was

    now i’m just myself and i don’t mind any more, i needed that diagnosis to give me insight into why i am ‘different’ etc. as soon as i got the diagnosis i told my psychiatrist i was ready to come off the meth -> subbies -> zero…

    following my diagnosis i read a huge amount about aspergers and spoke to other ‘aspies’ online, i discovered i wasn’t alone, that there were loads of others with exactly the same personality traits, it changed my life…

    my life long depression lifted completely within a few days of diagnosis, that’s how desperate i was for answers (the correct ones), not that i don’t get depressed every now and then (as do we all), but the 24/7 clinical depression left me…

    now i’m learning to be myself again and to feel ‘ok’ about myself just being who i am albeit with my curious aspergers ways…

    just to re-iterate, there are plenty of fantastic people in the NHS, i just got a pretty ruff deal with being misdiagnosed until 34 years of age and largely let down by the medical profession (as my doctor freely admitted to me), i chose full blown opiate addiction at a point in my life where i really felt there was no point going on, i chose to become opiate free once diagnosed because it gave me hope out of years of darkness…

    i don’t have an ‘addiction disease’, i agree with your interpretation, that of dis-ease, not being at ease with oneself, my diagnosis gave me the tools to start to learn to be comfortable with myself, thus no longer needing to be dis-eased with myself, thus no longer a requirement for ever increasing doses of opiates…

    the rattle is bloody horrid, and i’m struggling, but it is worth every minute because the rewards are immeasurable in comparison…

    hope you get your situation sorted soon aka your ex outta the way, glad to hear family are about to help and offer some support 🙂

    Im not sure if this is true but I heard that heroine used to be used to try and get you off methadone which is a bit mad because now its the other way round (correct me if im wrong)

    Ive been a heroin addict for 8 years and I’ve only ever OD’d once and that was on methadone… 35mls.

    Anyone who has never taken methadone before I’d say that if you’re going to do it take a tea-spoon amount and wait 90mins before even thinking about anymore… and definetly not if you’ve been drinking alcohol or taking Benzos.

    never seen methadone about, don’t know any heroin users myself…. wouldn’t mind some methadone for the painkilling ability.

    as far as i know, taking methadone without being an experienced heroin user is likely to end up in you puking and shit

    i’ve been quite sick off subutex and that was thanks to listening to a fucking heroin addict….. methadone and subutex are both heroin substitutes.

    I’d have been much better not listening to his shitty advice, erowid ftw.

    Methadone ORAL is very good at stopping an addiction however please IGNORE “METHADONE IS LIKE BEING ON HEROIN ALL THE TIME” BS because under MMT it’s NOT. You wont be high only stable although some claim they do get a high but it;s probably a craving.

    METHADONE ORAL is VERY DANGERIOUS TO NON-TOLERENT USERS, I KNOW A CHILD DIED FROM A TABLESPOON OF IT and as low as 15mg can kill so if you are a parent or have kids about LOCK the stuff away PLEEEEEEEASE.

    I got on methadone 40mg which never held me and getting upped was a pain, I think its my age being young they assume I aint as hardcore but I spend money on more for night, I used to shoot methadone too as I could get it in AMPULE form 20mg ones – I shot upto 120mg at a time and the rush was better than heroin and 6hr it lasted the rush. The amps were gold at the time. Oral gives no rush, just a buzz with benzos Usually 200mg and I LOVED IVING RITALIN AND MIDAZ ONTOP – this was what got me my benzo habit) but this is my tolerence which was stupidly high I would shoot 5+ half ok bags of heroin and still stand easy, my saying was if I get blood then I might as well have a phat hit as I wanted the drug and not the needle I would slam OC but boy that costed 160-240mg shots, I wanted to be on 70-90mg and have a split 12/12hr but no. IN the end back to subs 16mg fucking pain jumping over once up on 16mg a week still using, rattling got 24mg – I’ve calmed it now. I am down to 16mg and no longer can shoot methadone amp but still use smack but try to avoid it.

    £35k opiates costed me and what do I have memories of needles and rushes……… car I could of bought for that, eh? serously!!!!!

    The problem with Methadone is you get on it and it’s awesome, then you’re back using. YOu get upped and upped then hit the wall usually 60-120mg/daily then you’re clean just on methadone – you get sick of it in the end trust me and want off so -5mg a week or so and it’s easy then you hit the flame about 25mg and it’s VERY hard then and using heroin is highly likely. Alot of places now get you to 10mg-30mg throw you to subutex 16mg and drop you down quickly.

    Alot of addicts wish they stopped the cear for 5 days and stuck at it rather than jumped on done and uears later. 🙁

    Was on a clinic For 2 years meth((liquid handcuffs)is very hard to kick.id try to ween 2mgs a wk. It does get rough when u hit 40mgs. But i kicked it on the concrete of a jail cell

    I take 50ml every day still, I fucking hate the stuff to be fair, there is only so much i can do every day without being hit by a huge bust of fatigue and wanting to lay down. Sucks man
