    Ive struggled with kratom for almost three years now. I gave myself the excuse that because it's legal it's okay for me to be using alot of it on a daily basis. Ive gotten to the point where I cant go a full day with out it with out insomnia , cold sweats, and tons anxiety! Someone please tell me there's help for this? Anyone out there successfully quit??

    @Des hello. thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry you've gotten hooked on kratom. I am glad you want to stop using it... I am giving you two links... one to educate you a bit on kratom, and one goes over some withdrawal facts and recovery options... As with any addiction, it takes time and a lot of effort to overcome it.... you may end up needing face-to-face help via a rehab, counselor, or support group. Do whatever it takes, and have that mentality (whatever it takes, I'm going to do it!) And, don't give up trying... no matter how many times you relapse, just keep getting up and trying again.... Those that have successfully overcome an addiction... adopt that mentality...

    Totally rooting for you.

    People put a little too much faith in these "Legal highs" like kratom and others. Hope things get better.

    yes, and they almost always lead to using the substance more than they want, becoming dependent
