First off, I would like to say that its awesome this site has been around for this long and has maintained the same look/feel. Ok this is not so much a question as it is a suggestion. I have been on and off opiates (smoking H. and norcos) for about 7 years now. Let me tell you guys that the first time you decide on quitting, like you seriously quit for at least a month, take it serious. Heres why: The more you relapse, the harder it is for you to quit again. So if its your first time stopping and you have been clean for quite sometime, remember that you are in a fortunate position and that it is IMPOSSIBLE to chip or control your opiate addiction. Just know that if you decide to reuse after being clean, that making that choice may entitle you to a lifetime of use. It becomes so much harder to quit again once you have already quit before and reused. Maybe others can chime in with reasons why its harder to quit down the road. I wish you all the best of luck with your lives and please respect your bodies/brains because as far as we know, they are all we have!
