Helping you to overcome heroin addiction through my own experience, strength, and hope.

Quitting heroin is hard without rehab

I know that there is a genuine interest in how to quit Heroin. Quitting heroin may be one of the most difficult tasks one can undertake. A person that is intent on stopping heroin needs to understand that they will be rather sick with heroin withdrawals for anywhere from 3 to 5 days. Of course this will depend on the amount and frequency of heroin use each day.

 During this time you will want to get yourself plenty of fluids because I doubt you will be eating much. Gator aide is a good bet to replenish your body plus it builds up electrolytes that have been depleted because of continued heroin abuse.

How to quit heroin

One way of quitting heroin is to inform your doctor of your decision to stop using heroin. They may be able to refer you to an addictions specialist that can write prescriptions for suboxone. This will make your heroin detox go a whole lot smoother. Now for this you will want to get around a 21 day supply of suboxone. This should be plenty to quit heroin.

I think it would be a good idea to go stay with a friend or family member. The first couple of days I say this because you are going to be plenty sick until the drugs kick in plus they can be there for moral support another good reason for this is because as soon as the heroin starts leaving your system you are going to want to get high real bad. They will be there to convince you not to.  .

Many people have overcome heroin addiction with a home suboxone detox. It does not really matter if you quit heroin at home or in a heroin rehab the important this is to quit before you die from a heroin overdose or go to prison for a drug related crime. One thing I can tell you for certain is that in order for this to happen you will have to take action. Why not do this today?
One should have a heroin addiction recovery plan in place before they go to rehab or even attempt to stop heroin. This plan be as simple as attending 12 step meetings like NA thats how I got clean and stay clean today. If you intend to use this method it would be a good idea to commit to going to a meeting on a daily basis. It takes a lot of work to stay clean and sober but you can do it!!
