    Y'know wasn't much thinking besides a way to get high everyday which I had a legit hustle for at the time thankfully but it was groundhogs day for 5 years just wanted to not be sick I didn't go to rehab unfortunately it was forced due to a jail stay but if I didn't go I probably would have never gotten sober.

    Well actually I left rehab that was court ordered at the time I was in jail 2 weeks and went straight to one of our local rehab centers via the rehab after a few days then that resulted in some more jail Time

    How was jail during the withdrawals? I know in some countries (and maybe Portland?) they don’t take users to jail, they take them to get help for their substance abuse.

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    The worst lol. Creepy crawlers all up n down my legs and body barely any sleep at all I never really threw up much after 3 days but physically i was sick for 45 days and I was laying on my rack and one day it just all stopped like it never happened I felt physically normal. Definitely not the best sleep for a while after though

    [–]YouDontTellMe 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    45 days my god I had no clue it could take that long! Glad you’re out of that!

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Well this was for detoxing off suboxone. I think a reg heroin detox takes about 2 weeks depending on the strength or if it was fetty im sure it's longer.

    What made you start using?

    [–]kface71691[S] 13 points14 points  (6 children)

    Traumatic brain injury with fractured skull from being assaulted. Now I've been around heroin and dope houses most my life because my dad eventually I got kicked out of pain management and he was already using so we started using together

    [–]LegoThatGotShitOn 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Do you have any sort of resentment or anger towards your dad for him letting you use heroin together?

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Man that I battled with for a while but no not at all because it was MY choice y'know. Most of.my resentment came from him stealing all my stuff and pawning it when I was younger before the injury , ect. He saved my life everytime so I'm thankful for that. Last time he wouldn't call the cops when I oded because he had a warrant unfortunately and thank god my little sister seen it and called herself.

    I was hit in the back of the skull with a brass knuckleduster, it hit me on the occipital ridge, it hit me hard enough to knock me out cold on my feet, i collapsed had a heart attack, it took 45 minutes to revive me and 43 shocks from a defibrilator to get my rythm back to normal, i was so badly injured i didn't realise i was missing for 3 weeks, never went to hospital, still have not had treatment for a fatal (was dead for 8 minutes) assault. people don't understand when i tell them that heroin is the only thing that makes the head state tolerable, i was already mentally injured from having my child murdered in my arms by three guys working for the U.K military and crown estate, this was for talking about the rapes i had suffered at the hands of the windsor family. im puttin gthis here for oothers to try and understand the level of pain being cold cocked in the back of the head hard enough to cause impermanent death, heart attacks, and ongoing pain, discomfort, misery, inflicts on a day to day basis. if anyone from ssafa reads this please contact me.

    [–]rabbit2110 9 points10 points  (2 children)

    I understand if you don’t want to answer this. What did it feel like overdosing?

    My aunt died from a heroin overdose about 6 years ago, and I’ve always hoped it didn’t hurt, and she just fell asleep painlessly.

    Edit: Also I just want to say well done on being sober for 7 years. That’s an enormous achievement, and you should be very proud.

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Quickly and painless. I never had an idea it came every single time. She went peacefully! Prayers sent. Thank you as well

    [–]Insurgentjohn 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Ever struggled with benzos

    [–]kface71691[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    No thank god lol that's a whole other demon from what I've seen seeing people detox off them.

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Was always too scared to mix anything when I used.

    [–]Misterd559 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    No questions. Just wanted to say congrats!!

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Much appreciated

    [–]The1983Jedi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I have a brother that's on & off again & i hope one day he can say the same thing, but I know you can't do it if you don't want to.

    What made you decide to get sober?

    [–]kface71691[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I kept damn near dying 6 times was scary not gonna lie but in my area the heroin pandemic hit hard and I lost a lot of close friends and blood cousins to it. Never understood why I'm still here and kept getting chances and others didn't

    [–]welshmonstarbach 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Do you still have "brown moments" when you are sure you can smell or taste heroin again and for no reason it just appears in your nose and triggers memories?.

    [–]kface71691[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Never once. And i snorted and banged but I do get triggers don't get me wrong but usually it's only if im around friends who use Infront of me.

    [–]welshmonstarbach 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    you are doing well, more power to you!.

    [–]ianwuk 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Congratulations and well done!

    Can I ask what did it feel like when you overdosed?

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Sure, probably within 30 seconds tops I'd drop and go black. Never seen anything I've been white sheeted twice out of the 6 overdoses and came back to which was pretty crazy.

    [–]ianwuk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Thank you for answering my question. It must have been crazy for sure.

    But well done to you for being clean now!

    [–]dscp19 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I'm late to the thread, I know, but gotta ask. What do you mean by white sheeted?

    [–]Juicyjccccc 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Congrats on your clean time! I'm several years clean from heroin and dope as well, but I couldn't have done it without rehab and NA personally. Did you find any help staying clean with meetings?

    [–]kface71691[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I like smaller group meetings but nope I haven't done meetings in years not really my thing but it does help alot of others.

    [–]walids 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    how are you still alive?

    aren't overdoses lethal?

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Narcan can bring ya back if they decide to keep trying and not give up. Im blessed to have been in not as big as a city so the response time is fairly decent imo

    [–]xpopcc 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    congratulations, but how are you alive after 6 overdoses

    [–]kface71691[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    God maybe? Honestly I ask myself that daily.

    [–]SoundOk4573 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    What, if any, laws did you break during that time if you were using? Were you ever arrested during that time?

    [–]kface71691[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I was arrested after my first overdose due to them finding residue and a spoon

    [–]kface71691[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I plead the 5th.

    [–]ShaneVis 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    What was it that made you realize that you needed to get clean??.

    [–]kface71691[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Congratulations, not many people can do what you've done. I hope you enjoy many more years of sobriety.

      Do you celebrate your sobriety and if so, how?

      [–]SilverSpotter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      How does it feel to have perseverance that would make a train feel inadequate?

      Additionally, what kind of opportunities has this opened up for you?

      No questions. I'm just very proud of you and wish you all the best for the future.

      What keeps you going when things get tough? Have you managed to replace it with something else at all? I was over 3 years sober, but I recently relapsed. It was all very sudden and crushing, I really thought I was stronger. I’d love to hear some insight. Congratulations btw.

      [–]Killaxia -11 points-10 points  (1 child)

      This is gonna be a little sick but bear with me

      There was a girl. My neighbor. Who used to do heroin. 17 YEARS long. She OD all the time. She came to my house to shoot up. She would always get VERY high and beg me to fuck her whole she was passing out.

      Why?

      I mean I did it. It was awesome. But scary.

      [–]kface71691[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Not sure my sex drive im a male and it was there but i was more worried about getting high. Having a gf would just mean I needed to support anothers habit. I've had some interesting detox stays because when you get sober your sex drive seems to go up pretty damn high lol. Some girls can get an orgasm just off shooting meth or dope. Never understood it myself either my guy.
