The first 8 days were the worst for me! When I reached another step, it was a huge milestone and I only got better and better with each step.

Knowing about the stages and how they worked through the help of inpatient rehab I think made it much easier. I think you should look into it.

Yes they are very real. Up to 12 days is the first, thats when your cravings seem to be the worst. Anxiety, paranoia and irritability are very present. Then 13 to 22 days these things will be way less but still have bad cravings and depression. Then after day 22 those things lesson and you will feel so much better.

Yep, lol as if the drug itself wasn't bad enough but now you have to go through a month of different symptoms ugh. Of course the first stage is the first 24 hours when you first begin with fever, chills and nausea. next 2 day to two weeks I was having horrible cravings and I was pissed. (that was fun) after that things got a bit better physically but I did get depressed. After 30 days all my physical symptoms were gone and I started to recover.
