    @Dave 147... Welcome to the community and thank you for sharing with us. I'm sorry to hear about the struggles you've been having. Yes, quitting cold turkey and on your own can be hellish and dangerous. Please promise me that you will seek medical attention if things get bad.

    I will be praying for you and sending you lots of positive energy, clean & sober vibes, hope, and encouragement.

    @Dave 147 hey there! welcome. i am wondering how you're doing. it's been about a week since you wrote. you do deserve a life free from this addiction... and yes, quitting cold turkey can be daunting and dangerous.

    are you able to seek the help of a physician or addiction specialist? to help with a tapering schedule?

    would love to hear back from you.
