I just signed up here today because I want to make a serious attempt to quit heroin and I could use all the support I can get. There aren’t many meetings close to where I live, and I don’t have anyone I can openly talk to about this problem. I’m terrified at the thought of having to go through withdrawals, even though it shouldn’t be too bad this time. It’s so hard to get anything done in that condition, and I’ll have to take time off from work and studies. I can’t keep going through this, I just want to put it all behind me.
It helps just to talk to people, so while encouragement would be nice, you can respond with just about anything. What are your strategies for preventing a relapse and for coping with stressful situations?
