I know how difficult it is to quit opiates because I’ve been there done that…SEVERAL times in fact. But something finally stuck this last time I quit. I’ve been off opiates for over four years now, and I’ve been researching and blogging about opiate recovery for over a year and a half.
One of the main concepts I’ve learned is this:
Quitting opiates is never a matter of ability, and it’s always a matter of MOTIVATION.”
You see, anyone can quit opiates. It’s not complicated in theory. All you have to do is stop taking the drug. However, in reality, this is MUCH more difficult than it sounds.
I’ve noticed that even when opiate-dependent individuals have strong medications and natural remedies for reducing opiate withdrawal symptoms, they sometimes fail at quitting. Why? Because it’s not enough to have a good detox plan. You also need to be in the right frame of mind.
YouTube Videos Can Inspire and Motivate You
If you’re still not “mentally ready” to be off opiates, then it can be easy to remain stuck in your addiction. Furthermore, it this mindset of yours is still ruled by fear, and if you constantly think about how miserable life is without opiates, then even if you quit, chances are you’ll end up relapsing within a few months or less.
To help you develop and nurture a powerful mindset that is ruled by courage, inspiration, motivation, and faith, I’ve put together the following list of YouTube videos for you to watch. Watching these videos can be absolutely LIFE-CHANGING.
These are beneficial to watch anytime in life, but I think they would be the most helpful to view to gain the motivation to quit opiates, or while going through acute or post-acute opiate withdrawal. Take your mind off the pain of the moment, and view these videos to fill your mind and heart with love and wisdom.
