Congrats on over a month clean..
The Nerontin is similar to lyrica, just not as strong. Did you use it to help with WD?
Be SO careful with chipping. It's so easy to say "Ill only use once a week so I don't get a habit", but we all know where that ALWAYS leads.
Yep...I think your right. The short agony of dope WDs is better than the long drawn out sub WD. It's kinda like, are you the Rip the bandaid off fast type, or the peel it off really slow type? Personally, I'd rather get it over with quick!
It's hard...the first few months off opiates, but it gets easier. Other people live their lives without opiates and we can too. It's really a happier life in the long run, although it feels like we are being deprived at first.
Your doing great..please check in often.
Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.
