The cure for heroin addiction

Posted , 21 users are following.

   I didnt know where i could share my expierience and make people aware that there is a possible cure to heroin addiction. So i figured i would write a forum and let people find my discussion. About 2 months ago I was put into the hospitol for 2 weeks so i could be treated for a bacteria infection in my blood. While i was in the hospitol. The doctors put me on 10 mgs of methadone every 12 hrs. When i was released from the hospitol. I went and got my prescription and within 6hrs i took 150mgs and overdosed. I was rushed to the hospitol and while in the hospitols care. I was put into a drug induced coma and put on a narcon drip. I spent 2 days in the coma before they woke me up. Ever since the coma. I have zero urges to use. What i believe after doing some research on the internet. I believe that the coma fixed my brain chemistry. Reset it per say. I use to believe the saying. Once an addict. Always an addict. NOT true. I know that many people arent going to believe me and are going to say. yeah right. Its only been 2 months. Chances are your going to relapse again. Not true. Drugs actually repulse me now like cigarette smoke repulses an ex smoker. My brain is making connectios that it hasnt made in years. My iq has gone up. My emotions are stable. I have control over my emotions. My social anxiety has completly disapeared. My self esteem and confidence is higher then it has ever been. I no longer think about getting high. Its like i have woken up from a bad dream and the hang cuffs have been taken off me. I feel free for the first time in 14 years. My point of this discussion is to inform other people that there are other options besides the methadone clinic or getting on suboxone. I truely believe that i have been cured and im going to continue to share my expierence with the world till the day i die.

    Hi Steven, how is the abstainance going ?........Still drug free I hope. I have seen several short films on a very well known video clip sharing site about taking ahahuaska which I reckon does a similar thing as you described, resetting the brain somehow. It's a very powerful hallucinogen from the Amazon. I,ve been following your post for an update and have gotten impatient ; )

    good luck mate. Mark.

      Brilliant, well done, got your life back, you gotta be happy with that result. I'm pleased for you I really am.

      I am 3 months clean on the 20th. We (my partner of 19 years & I) had been at it for 10+ years, we'd given up before but not properly as usually we knew we would get back on it ASAP for one reason or another.

      However due to extenuating cucumstances, worry about the kids suffering, debt, life falling apart etc etc we had a kick in the arse we so badly needed and got our s**t sorted. And 3 months later I'm buzzin on life again at 44. Music is now my d.o.c.

      Update to my previous mentioning of the fact I had been clean for 3 months...well it's now Jan 2017 and I'm still free of heron nor have I used since May 2014, just over 2 and a half years. Life is so much easier clean.

      Ii hope you have also remained clean. Please can we have an update ?

    I myself was an heroin addict for 15 yrs in 2000 I overdosed badly on a mix of diazepam df's and heroin the Dr's informed family lucky to live miracle if he's not brain damaged I'm here now writing this however I dI'd not stop using until 5/6 years ago I am on subutex. Back to the point before this trauma I wasn't a nice person I had no empathy I am now more of an understanding person people I have known for years have told me that it was at the time of my od that my personality gradually changed for the better so there must be something in what you say for you it changed you towards drugs with me personality however I do hope nobody has to go through an overdose to find out hope you are still doing well

    This isn't new it has been known for years addicts coming out of induced coma have no desire to resume taking drugs question is why not implement it? Too costly

    This is AMAZING!

    I do not find this hard to believe, I believe you 110%

    Very happy for you, Some people who wake from comas do not remember thier past at all, or only parts of it.  You remember and you know you are a different person.

    I bet you a very happy arent you.

    Much Love, you are lucky to be alive,

    smile

    Hi I am glad to hear that you are drug free. I am wanting to do this so bad cuz I'm tired of anything having a hold on my life. First it was heroin now it's methadone. that stuff is worse than any opiate. It's so much harder to kick than whatever it was that lead u to go there in the first place. My question is how much does that procedure cost? Does state insurance pay for it? Again I'm very proud of you for staying clean even though I don't know you. Anyone who can get off anything and stay that way I give u praise. I will be so glad when the day comes that I have no monkey on my back. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
