well its been almost 4 weeks since I quit taking Zopiclone and I am so glad that I did. The first week or so I went to hell and back. No sleep whatsoever and really in a bad state. I did my own research on how to beat the addiction and online I discovered that if you start taking melitonin , that it will assist in falling asleep. So I took 10mg about an hour before bedtime the first few days and it didn't do anything. So I went to plan B. I figured if I wasnt going to sleep, I might as well stay up to the wee hours of the morning which I did. I physically exhausted my system and still took the melitonin when I felt I could nod off. I did this for about 2 weeks and I found myself, every night being able to fall asleep sooner. Now its been almost 4 weeks and Ive decreased my melitonin to 5 mg and I can go to sleep around midnight and stay asleep til about 7:30 the next morning. My sleep disorder is slowly getting better and I know by year end, my goal to become addiction free will be a reality. I never gave up cause my goal was to become a better person for myself, to live life to the fullest, and never look back at the addiction so many doctors wanted me to be on. I can say honestly here that everyone's health starts within themselves. We all have to really take control of it instead of allowing doctors to consistently give one pill after another. I have been lucky and have found a doctor who is onboard with me and has verbally said, that he will not give me anything that is habit forming ever again. I have never been more focus than I am right now and I plan on remaining that way. Thanks to all of you out there that responded to my messege. I am a firm believer that us, together as one united force can lick any issue that we have. I hgive praises to Jesus as well for with his strength and belief in me, I succeeded in my quest.
For those of you still on your journey, Remember, you are never alone, Just reach out to Jesus and to this forum, you will be succeful and happier than you thought possible
take care everyone
