you are completely correct. There really isn't a miracle pill. I have tried everything under the sun to avoid withdrawals and failed every time. Its not something that is easy for an addict in the middle of the worst flu/depression/cravings of their life to accept, but once you do accept it, it does make the idea of ever taking another opiate not an option. And getting off and staying off that drug is the only sure way that you will never have to go through this hell again. At least thats what I keep telling myself. I quit cold turkey 4 days ago.... Good luck everyone. This is one hell of a battle we are all fighting.
