Once upon a time I was addicted to prescription opiates, then heroin….and the main thing that ruled my life was FEAR (F#ck Everything And Run). I always needed some type of opiate drug in my system.
Sure I had my favorites (oxycodone, heroin, Opana), but really I would settle for just about any type of opiate. I didn’t even care about getting high anymore, I was just scared to death of going through opiate withdrawal.
My addiction continued long after I wanted to stop, for the sole purpose of staying “normal”.
I would avoid getting sick at all costs. I would barrow money, tell lies, pawn my music equipment, and in a few cases I even stole to avoid the horrific experience known as the opiate withdrawal syndrome. I simply had no faith in my ability to live a happy life without opiates, which had become my antidepressant medication…so I gave in to my fears.
Quitting ain’t Easy
Quitting opiates was very hard for two primary reasons. Most important was the physical addiction aspect. I was physiologically dependent upon opiates, so even when I wanted to stop, my body would go through unimaginable pain and psychological terror if I tried to do so (that was before I knew about natural remedies.)
Next was the benefits opiates were giving me, which consisted of the following:
- A sense of connection with myself
- Relief of social anxiety
Note: Towards the end of my addiction, I had basically lived for the majority of 17 years with some type of addictive mind-altering substance in my body at all times. When I tried Rx opiates for the first time, I didn’t care about any other substance anymore. I found my favorite drug…or it found me.
Courage and Faith
It took me a long time, but eventually I built up the courage to live life without drugs. I even went the extra mile and conditioned a new mindset. Instead of fear, I now had faith. Instead of being a procrastinator, I became goal-oriented and focused on self-improvement.
If I knew back then what I now know, quitting would be much easier. If you’re currently struggling to quit opiates, I want to help…and I believe I have something that can help you condition a strong new mindset.
I recently watched a YouTube video that changed my life forever. It’s a mix of various motivational speeches with inspirational music in the background.
During the video I became overwhelmed with positive emotions such as:
Note: I’ve continued to listen to the video on my phone with headphones or in my car almost daily, and I now feel completely UNSTOPPABLE. My courage and confidence are higher than ever before.
