On a brief side note this is why opponents to legalizing marijuana call it a gateway drug. Indonesian Gold Kratom Elwood is weed chemically addictive? Most studies have shown it is not which medically makes it safer than even Kratom. Vicadin Oxycodone cocain etc. Then they wind up chemically addicted and away they go. Does everyone who smokes weed travel that path? Absolutely not. Based on all of the well documented medical evidence provided in this post (feel free to research on your own on reputable sites) that statement is simply false. The same argument could be made for opium.
I feel stuck and really really want to quit this awful substance. I am doing- full time work Indonesian Gold Kratom Elwood and school- and go off to rehab. I am 23 years old and accept full responsibility for my habit. I just dont know what to do next. Robby you should consider taping down on plain leaf as low as you can. Then your just going to have to deal with the kratom strains guide withdrawals.
God and I. I am committed to staying off so at least that is not a concern for me. I drive right past the K supply shop twice a day. What drives me is the pain that I have felt getting over it and I have a high threshold for pain. I have done it cold turkey after being on extracts for 10 months. I was in the state to begin with.
Before the kratom I was on other things so I never really came down. I have been off it about 4 weeks physically I am better but mentally I am depressed and I had depression to begin with. I am on meds so the pshycological effects are still hard on me. When I came of I came clean with my dad I had no more kratom Day one I was shaking my vision was blury hot and cold sweats and dizzy. Second day anxiety no sleep rls had not eaten. I had found some kratom in my room I thanked jesus downed it and threw it back up uncontrolably.
Drobium said some things that are very similar with me. I started taking Kratom because of my alcohol use or misuse. I was a binge drinker and it was common for me to go months without drinking only to reward myself after a good weeks work or what have you.
I have been taking kratom every day just about since (a little over a year). I am 100% addicted to kratom. Kratom is natural it is better than chemicals but it can be equally as addicting as a painkiller.
Spicy foods such as Thai and Indian increase potency as well. This is not smoking weed on kratom meant to encourage you to keep dosing and eat these foods. I say it so you can taper down with less K and still feel a slice of normalcy.
Hope that helps some of you. Stay away from Benzos though. Chances are you will become more addicted to those and talk about slavery; salviadee brand kratom extract x30 powder you can die from those withdrawals. A few celebrities have already. I am going to take a different approach this time though. I just ordered a new batch tonight.
Good luck to anyone else going through this! Reading these posts has helped me. To Bleu I hope the best for you and will be taking your advice. Thanks and all the best. So kratom was a SAVIOR to me. But there are addiction issues and from my research they can vary from minor discomfort to withdrawal symptoms similar to those of coming off heroin. Those who use mild kratom occasionally have a very different experience compared to those who use it daily etc etc etc. I take it several times daily via capsule and have to get up an hour early each day to take
my dose to avoid them.
