methadonia

Wow, congrats! I've heard that methadone is like one of the hardest withdrawals. I'm so glad you are getting sleep--I think the hardest part of WDs is the insomnia. There's actually a documentary with the name of your subject line, but I definitely don't suggest you watch it right now Smile. Sending you thoughts of recovery and wellness.. and good sleep!

Sleep is def hard to get to return to normal, but when it does it's beautiful. Shouldn't be long now before you're able to sleep on a somewhat regular schedule. My advice for what helped me is to get plenty of exercise, and I found taking some basic multi-vitamins helpful as well. Without being nasty, a tweak to your diet can help other areas, bananas and white rice are a life saver... If you've been there u know what I'm talking about.
Just stick with, you're nearing the finish line more and more each day, best of luck to you my friend. Keep us updated with your progress, and of course if u have any questions from someone who's just been there feel free to ask anytime. Can't pm yet, but I'll see any posts on this thread anyway.
Best to you,
Den

Wow man congrats, that's a hell of a feat. I don't think I would have survived a ct from 20. I probably woulda gone crawling back with my tail between my legs lol. But good for u man, now that you're free from that ball and chain don't even look back.

I've never had experience with methadone but can attest to the power of exercising while withdrawing.

Congratulations on toughing it out! Keep it up!

To Denman66 I dropped 15ml in September and another 15 mid December then went for it big time an dropped the last 20 ml mid/late Jan and it was hellish but feel great now but some things last a long time if you've been there you'll know minutes feel like hours but I done it! Can hardly believe it myself.
