Success Stories Pt.1
By Jorge (George) Fernandez

  The following is a compilation of real testimonies which I've received from people all over the world. These are real testimonies from real heroin addicts, recovering addicts, parents helping their children quit heroin; brothers and sisters helping their family members quit heroin; boyfriends and girlfriends helping their loved ones quit heroin and stay clean for good. (Names have been abbreviated with initials to ensure privacy and personal and private details have also been removed as well). Enjoy.

Regards.." LT (male)

"I cannot express how grateful I am for your website. I was able to quit my 4-6 bag a day habit cold turkey after finding your website and following your instructions. I believe this was the best method for me as every bit of that hell I experienced is what terrifies me to even think of a relapse. Winning the fight has made me proud. I don't remember the last time I felt this good about myself. I am a 37 yr old mother of 2. I work, own my own home,... I'm following your advice on how to stay clean and prevent relapse. I can only hope and pray for the best. Anyways, thank you so much. You are an amazing person to whom I owe my life to. Thank you so much..." KS (female)

"Hello...I'm 21 years old, at university studying... I was a functioning addict for about a year... This drug has ripped my family apart. So I went cold turkey using your advice! Today is Day 3 - I woke up this morning, and I've never felt better. This is the first time in a whole year I have walked around my own hometown sober. I've got a spring in my step and yes this was the hardest battle I've ever faced! But I read and read and read and read anything and everything on your website and your advice Jorge is the best around buddy! No relapse for me hopefully - already changed my mobile number so no more 'Where are you?' dealer texts! Love you Jorge, you've saved me and my family..." AR (male)
  "Hi Jorge, Thank you so much for your advice and words of encouragement during an extremely stressful time. My boyfriend has been so genuinely happy.., and he's been staying home with family, watching movies, hiking with me, and even his music has changed! It's so incredible having him back to his normal self and I can't believe the change I've noticed in just one week! He's cut off all the negative influences in his life, and despite living in the center of a city filled with drugs and crime, he's stayed mentally strong and resisted the urge to use again. I have so much faith in him and I'm loving and supporting him on this journey,... He no longer expresses a desire to get high. I know this journey will be long, but with your advice and his willpower we are definitely off to a great start! From the bottom of my heart, thank you! HG (female helping boyfriend)

"hi george. i am 8 days clean and im feeling much better than day 1. im glad that i found this website and juz wanna say THANK YOU for ur amazing articles. i am not giving up and not even touching the hits again because i am so scared to death of withdrawals. and im sure ppl who read ur blog will pass all the nightmares too. and again thank u for ur tips and helps. i am so glad that i read ur article again and again. sincerly ...." HL (male)

"Hi Jorge... its been 6 days now since ive stoped using heroin... I used meds and they helped massively... I did as u told me and came clean to my parents about everything..." MG (male)

"George, "" was in fact detoxing himself cold turkey this week. He was well enough to see me yesterday. As soon as I saw him I knew he was different. He looked good for once in a long time, he had an energy and sort of glow to him that I havnt seen in months. He was smiling, laughing, and seemed to be the man I fell in love with.... It was so beautiful to see him acting like his old self and to see him in such a good place. He even decided to quit smoking cigarettes. I really believe that he is making a real effort to fix himself. All we need to do now is keep him away from the junk and cultivate this positivity. I've been reading up on your site about how to do this... I just want to thank you again for talking with me. Because of your advice to always conduct myself in a "kind and loving manner" I think that most of all helped the situation as far as I'm concerned. You planted that seed in my head to be conscious of this always, and for that Im so glad that I found this site and contacted you. Thanks for your impact..." CA (girlfriend helping boyfriend)

"As of today I am 4 days no heroin. Im shakey. Anxious... I am headed out in a few to walk. And walk some more. I dont know what to say or do right now. I WANT TO STAY STRONG!!! I do want my life back!!! AM (male)
  "I would like to tell you that my youngest son is now in treatment and I pray he takes this chance to change his life for the better. Thanks again." AW (father helping son)

"I'm doin it! I startd snortn oxy's 3 yrs ago and last year it turnd into snortn herion! im on day 3 and already feel better! ive been followin ur cold turkey method! thank u doesnt cut it! But thats all i got thank u! ur givin me my life BACK!..." GS (male)

"Hiya Jorge, just wanted to say your page is a great inspiration and practical tool for quitting. My boyfriend and I are both so sick of this lifestyle and everything that comes with. The never having money, the constant worry about having enough or getting busted, the lying to friends and family. We've tried before, but now after reading your site we've realized we CAN do this..." Af (female)

"Hello, Thank you for your website. This website has helped me quit...finally, after sooo many years... i cant thank you enough...thank you and god bless.!!" BP (male)

"Hello...I am 4 days clean... I have been reading on your website (quitting for men) and it is exactly what I needed. Thank You for all your hard work. I will be reading it over and over for support and encouragement. I will also browse other parts of the site as well. Thank you again..." MF (male)

"Hi, Your website has been an invaluable source of information and encouragement to me. Today is day 6 of sobriety for me.... I am exercising again... Again thank you so much for the site, it has definitely changed my life! Thank you so much for your time and positive energy!..." BG (male)

"Dear Jorge, thank you for your website. It was instrumental in getting me off my "" and finally quitting. I'm on day/night 4 and have only been taking loperamide for withdrawal.... I have felt little to no w/d after having used a lot...for a long time.... I've been taking 12 mg in the morning and 12 before bed.... I can't wait til I
rid my life of this addiction. Sincerely,..." CM (male)

UPDATE: "Hey Jorge I'm 15 minutes from being a week clean. I can't be prouder but am trying to stay humble and not get too cocky. New year new life... Thankful & grateful as always,..." CM (male)
  "I appreciate your insight on this site...Im on day 10 now and feel all the way back to normal... I never thought I could be one of those people to go cold turkey. It can be done! Taking hot showers and exercising really helps along with upbeat music. Thanks again for changing my life and getting me back on track. Take care.." CJ (male)

"I am on day 10 of quitting cold turkey. First time in my life that i did not quit in jail...I am slowly reaching out and being honest that I have ten days clean. It is humbling, but I know the truth is the only way. I have broken the physical addiction, now I have to break the mental addiction... It is the first thing I have done for the past year when I wake up, I need to make a new life, new habits. I don't know how and I don't want to use again. This site is awesome... I am not a slave to heroin today. This is the first day I actually feel some what decent... Thank you." MG (female)

"Thank you so much for the pointers, it's been rough but I'm on day 4 cold turkey and starting to feel better. Regards," RO (male)

"I want to thank you for sharing your storey on ur site. I cried almost the whole time bc there were so many similarities in our stories. Im now 21 and hav been hooked on herion since i was 17. Ive been to 4 treatment centers and none seem to ever work for me. Today is my first day detoxing and i kno im going to hav a horrible week but i simply cannot live my life like this anymore.

Only on day 3 clean, have to keep working (self employed) which is hard but now I have some ideas from what you wrote that should help. You must be some kind of Saint - thank you thank you thank you.." JJ (male)

And because of this site am 6 days doing it cold turkey so I remember the pain I'm going thru,and NEVER will forget it,..

It's amazing that it has been that long and he has been able to do it!... and now he has gained weight and looks healthy and has been taking the vitamins, and the supplements, and he gets a lot more sleep now then at the first! He is able to do things sometimes and feels better... he's come so far! Some don't see a month as being clean or to long as he'd been using a whole lot longer than that, but this is the longest he's been clean since we've dated and gotten MARRIED! Thanks so much Jorge!" MF (wife helping husband)

"Hey man i found this site during my first day of quiting and i found it to be the most helpful website out there. you know exactly what its like going through this. right now i am almost done with my 3rd day so im very happy... any way thank you so so much for taking the time to make your site it has been alot of help..."

"Day 5 man, I came across your site and it inspired me... Just moved to san antonio 6 months ago to start a new life,... i am determined this time.... i'm getting better..., gotta work in an hour too.. But your article made me smile, and i've been crying ... all day...." RC (male)

"Dear Jorge,... I just wanted to say thanks for your website! My wife and I struggled for years with opiates, bouncing between painkillers and H back and forth. Opiates cost me my freedom (and a felony), more money then I could possible calculate and years of hopelessness...Your website helped me to believe I really could get off dope. It was brutally hard, by far the hardest thing I've ever done, But I've stuck it out. I have stayed completely clean and sober and I can't believe how much better my life is today. My worst day now is better then my best day 6 months ago.... I read, read and re-read the stuff on your website. I watched t.v..., you were totally right on ditching the phone numbers and going incognito for a while, Mr. Dope-man called, texted and asked my friends about me, he was missing that 500$ a week we'd been giving him... I can't over state how much help getting into a 12-step program has been for me. As soon as I could leave the house, I started hitting meetings... being around people, who not only didn't judge but understood and cared, made a huge difference to me. I truly love my life now, and I work everyday to make sure I'm doing what I need to stay clean and sober... Thanks for all you've done to give hope to people like me that we can get off dope..." ST (male)

  "Thankyou! You have saved me! Great article, I'm on third day with no craving's. I feel a little slow but by monday I should be GOLDEN! Thankyou Again!!" RC (male)

UPDATE: DAY 7: Just read your eletter and thank you! I won't let you down. It's monday and I feel great starting to get my power back and no restlesness. Once again thank you I will make it if not for myself but my son, family and friend's! YESSS I DID ITTT!!!!" RC (male)

"Atm I have 5 days clean... starting to feel a bit better... but the only reason for the being clean is im 2000 miles away from home!... im gonna try my hardest to keep this going... but its a battle,... it feels good to know there is someone to talk to about things when needd!!..." EL (male)

"I am on day 15 of being clean and it's the longest I've been since I started using. I went for my first walk/jog today and felt a little better. I used the lowest dosage of subutex to get through the first 4 days and have taken less than .1 mgs here and there when I have random skin crawlings because I don't want to be hooked to another substance....Thank you for listening..." WW (male)

"Hi Jorge!!! I just wanna say its day 6!!! Wow it was a struggle for me to get here cold turkey... I just kept reading what u wrote and hung on for dear life.

  "My boyfriend has been withdrawing for over 48 hrs. Your website has been so helpful to me... my apartment is a safe place. He has been staying here going on 3rd night heroin free. I have followed your tips. Stocked up on all supplies... Today he almost caved but I read to him from your website and I reminded him of his kids and how his future can be. He then quickly went back to bed. He has gotten up to shower, eat and drink... He gave me his keys three nights ago and he hasn't asked for them back. And at one point said I'm doing this for my kids, myself and you. It gives me hope he is really trying... Thank you for your website and support. I am having a hard time but using the approach you suggested, Loving, caring and non enabling... I keep telling him he is half way there and in a couple of days he will feel better... He is just using over the counter flu meds, vitamin water, peanut butter, Imodium... Thanks for your support. I love him and know if this drug was out of his life his life and children's lives will be forever changed!! J (girlfriend helping boyfriend)

UPDATE: Day 3: "We are just leaving first na meeting for him since April... we tried endlessly to get to a meeting. And we did it!!! He also erased the dealers phone number out of his phone. He can stay with me as long as he continues this road to being drug free... I keep reminding him everyday your life will improve and get better. I read to him about making changes from your website. I hope and pray for him. I just wanted to let you know That your website has helped me greatly. I learned so much and you got me through a scary emotional time. And I vow to myself, although I'm not an addict. I'm still a human and I'm going to continue to work on being an honest, moral, kind and compassionate person. Thankfully... J (girlfriend helping boyfriend)

UPDATE: Day 4: "I took him to phone store he changed his number and erased phone contacts...We took a walk around a beautiful close by water front town... I'm headed to take him to another meeting. I'm also going to buy him a small scale model of a building to work on his boredom. Stopping at hobby shop after meeting. I'm praying... Meeting tonight. Thanks for your support. We need it!!! J (girlfriend helping boyfriend)

UPDATE: Day 8: "Hey Jorge!!! 8 days strong! He has been going to a meeting a night. He walked out of meeting tonight 8 days clean, won a crazy 8 scratch off lol. And this is getting in touch with his spiritual side. He sees that all good is happening from his staying clean and making a meeting everyday. Everyday he is getting better and feeling better. We r going tomorrow to NYC and riding bikes through Central Park and then museum of modern art for my birthday. He is smiling and looks great and he is getting phone numbers from sober men with major clean time. I can't believe this all stemmed from your website and my ultimatum to him and most of all his strength to not want to be a junkie!! Really all gods intervention. Thanks again..." J (girlfriend helping boyfriend)
  "I googled on how to quit cold turkey and found your website it has been a tremendous help to me today is day three and I'm actually making it this time I hope to stay on this track... so far so good I want so bad to be off this garbage so I can take better care of my kids and get back to work and get it back together...

Id be lying if I said I had any kind of energy what so ever. But all things considered I'm feeling ok. Able to hold conversation with my boss fairly easily which helps with taking my mind off the physical pain. I can't wait to be out of these woods. I can't wait to begin my new endeavor in life, now knowing I can never ever ever go back, not even once. Anyways I'm 6 hours from my 4th day. Hoping this will start to diminish as the night drags on... Wish me luck Jorge I've been thinking of your positivity!" JL (male)

Most of the discomfort has finally subsided... The goose flesh is almost gone/tolerable and I actually laughed for a long time today. I keep thinking about you, and what you've done for all those people who were scared to face this nightmare. It makes me want to volunteer somewhere to give back; like you have. Once my energy is up I'm going to start considering ways to help those who are still in her grips...I hope you are well my friend. Thank you again for the reply and the wonderful encouragement!

"Dearest Jorge, I am writing a follow up to my email to you regarding my son. He has been clean now for nearly 2 months. I cannot thank you enough for your very helpful and encouraging website. My son followed your cold turkey plan, except for the exercise. I watched the transformation as his body and mind allowed.... It took about 6 weeks to get a good nights sleep, and once the appetite returned, he got stronger every day. About 2 weeks ago he started to take long skateboard runs, and was quite happy to feel so energized. He began attending weekly Christian based meetings for addiction, and even attends church with me...He is looking for work now, eating and sleeping well, attending meetings and church, associating with drug free friends, and saying he wants to be drug free.,..Let me say again over, and over that I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the work you put into helping others. My son couldnt have done this alone.... God Bless you for all you do. Regards..." BF (mother helping son)

UPDATE: 1 month clean: Jorge, I am pleased to report that it has been over a month since I beat heroin and cocaine cold-turkey. Wow, has my life drastically changed! Most noticeably, I have gained over 20 lbs.... I cant stop eating everything in sight! ARGGGG!! I have to remind myself to eat healthier. I have been taking a vitamin regiment which has been helping a lot. Especially my B-Complex vitamins coupled with L-Lysine (amino supplement). I would highly recommend this combination to others in my situation. You were right about the exercise, SO important...I did my best to stretch often and keep moving around, and I took the occasional light walk to the store for supplements or beverages... I had the help of my girlfriend who stood by my side the whole time... Going through all of this together has made us so much stronger, and it becomes more and more clear that she is the person I will marry... I started a new job...I was lucky to have some good friends plug me in with a new job within a few weeks after quitting... I am starting to get back into shape...And after this next paycheck, my girlfriend and I will finally be all caught up on our bills and rent... One of the guys saw me yesterday and said "wow man, you look like a normal, happy, healthy person"... I just feel so thankful to be alive. Everything in life has become so beautiful again. The birds, the sunshine, flowers, smells, feels.... its like an explosion of life everywhere. I feel reborn. It's amazing.... the feeling is so much better than any drug can give you. I proved to myself that "anything is possible"... truly.... you only have to believe in yourself. I feel this empowerment that I have never felt before and I have all this confidence in myself. Something I have struggled with my entire life... Thank you for being there for all of us, Jorge, we need more people in the world like you. It is so easy to be written off by the world as a "stupid junkie"..... but YOU know that its more complicated than that. We are people too. Normal people who have made bad decisions because we were in pain, emotionally or physically. Thank you man. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart..." CJ (male)
  "Dear Jorge, I stumbled across your page around ten days ago. Your site showed sensitivity and compassion. It's just what I needed as oppose to the cold "your a junkie" type sites. Its what us lost souls need. You inspired me! your words were and still are a most needed comfort and inspiration! I am now soon to be 7 days clean. The insomnia is debilitating but I will march on through! I simply wish to say, thank you Jorge, you have been of priceless help to me. I wish I could shake your hand..." Ads (Male)

UPDATE: Day 12: "Hey Jorge,... I had a read of your site and its the words "Do or die" that resonated inside me! you said that if your just going to lie in bed and feel sorry for yourself, your going to just fade away!... there was a moment where I plucked up the courage to tell the guys (they were aware of my addiction to H) and I just opened up fully about my battle and I told them that I am clean now for 12 days, they cheered and shook my hand and hugged me. Man, I broke down into tears! I mean I bawled like a baby! But it felt so good just to get it out! I hammered the crap out of my guitar! I felt this energy, this force flowing through me!The bottom line is...I FELT ALIVE AGAIN MAN!... I know I dont know you, but I feel like I do in a way as have read from the same evil page. As a mentor goes, AGAIN I want to thank you Jorge from my heart, for taking the time out to support me. DO OR DIE BROTHER! God bless you Jorge,.." Ads (Male)

All opiates out my system have not used again. Managed to go back to work today without feeling my heart was bursting out my chest with anxiety. Think the fresh air, structure and being back in the company of the outside world worked wonders too. I really want to keep away from the bad ways and I know I have a way to go with my psychological work. I need to be strong when the thoughts try to tempt me back.... I am getting married soon and my fiance needs to feel secure and not feel she is waiting for the next nightmare...Thanks so much man.." JD (male)

I really admire the fact that you actually care and i bow to you and your good will, truly... and on that behalf buprenorphine is helping a lot. Its day 4 today and i feel better. i'm eating healthy and trying to think healthy too. Im following your advices, and i will do everything to keep walking the clean path and quit heroin for good. I normally get by quite good with the first days, my problem is one that you have mentioned in your site, overconfidence. After the first 7 days i tend to become euphoric and to confident and i really have to work my mind out concerning that. Your web site is the best, most complete and organized web site i came across through out the web. We could use something like this in Portugal, since we have lots of people seeking advice online but nothing like this exists... Maybe one day, if i quit for good(and eventually i will) i'll work on a platform like yours to help my fellow portuguese addicts. I would love to that =) I'll keep you updated Jorge and keep on reading your site and advices. I agree with you when you say that we become the information we tend to seek out for, so ill keep reading about quitting heroin and turn my life around for good!! Thank you so much and may the good force be with you too=)" PS (male)

UPDATE: Day 5: "Good morning Jorge,Thank you man, really. Maybe i will. I wanna do this, quit heroin. More than anything right now.

WG (male)

"Hello Jorge, I wanted to let you know how "" has faired the last six days. "" first two days were, for lack of a better term, a full on firestorm. But she held strong and cooperated with all she had. During the toughest parts she kept mumbling something we couldn't make it. Finally we got what she was saying... it was "I can do this, I can do this"... day five, "" slept the entire night... day six. They went for her walk/run... I'm so pleased she is bouncing back with the determination of the champion that "" has always been. She is going back to work tomorrow morning, day seven.

With much respect,..." DR (mother hepling daughter)

Your website rules, and I will recommend it to everyone I know that wants to quit. I couldn't afford the things you had on the cold turkey section.. but things on there still helped me and even made me tear up some. I don't have a great support system here and just reading that, even from a complete stranger, that I can do it is amazing. Thanks again :) " TH (female)

UPDATE: Day 9: "It was one of the hardest things I've ever done...but now so worth it. Thank u again for keeping my head up, u really did help me believe in myself. Another thing that helped was I wrote a letter to myself promising to never do it again, all the reasons not to, how I felt withdrawing, and how to get thru the cravings. I took all ur advice and I think I have ur whole entire Web site memorized by now. Thanks again if I didn't stop now I might not have been around in a few more months cuz I was losing so much weight. I'm small as it is only 5 ft and 97 pounds but 2 Weeks ago I was at 83 pounds and would have probably kept losing more weight. I read the success stories and people say that u saved there life, well u can add one more to the list. Can't thank u enough..." MS (female)
  "Hi Jorge!.. I wanted to let you know how I'm doing now. I'm engaged to the most supportive and understanding man in the world, and I went back to school to become a doctor. I'm in the honors program at a private " " university with a 4.0 so far, and I'm hoping to become a psychiatrist and join Doctors Without Borders and open up a rehab one day. I had done heroin for 8 years, and once I became clean, I was disgusted at how selfish and despicable a life I had been living. I've gotten 5 of my friends to quit and took care of them through withdrawals...My advice to anyone looking at this website is stop waiting for a good opportunity to quit. A lot of people have to keep working to pay their bills or fix their cars or get a lawyer, but nothing will get better while you're still doing dope. A lot of people's lives are hanging on by a thread, and they feel they don't have the time to withdraw. They're afraid to lose their jobs (the ones who have jobs), but there's no point in even having a job if you're just going to spend your money on dope. When you do dope, there are only 4 places you can go: to the streets, to jail, to the hospital and to the morgue. It's impossible to become successful while on it, and there are no advantages that last. These are facts. I'll never forget the day I stumbled on your website. I didn't know what to do, and all I had to do was ask. You helped me every step of the way... I hope I can come visit you when I finish med school and my residency. I'll definitely need a vacation to the beach by then! :) Thanks for all the help! I never could have done it without you!..." LT (female)

I started exercising again and that really helps.... I just have to keep going. Keep fighting the evil urge to use. Stay sane. Stay calm.... I am just going to take little steps like fixing my resume up and then send it out daily. And just pray. And pray....I hope you are well. I thought of you often.... You may have saved my life.

UPDATE: 1 Year clean: "Hello there Jorge!...I have some great news - I made it to my ONE year sober mark!!! I'm really not sure how to convey what I felt the yesterday as I took my one year token at my home group meeting. There was so much love and joy and gratitude in that room. I felt like I finally had achieved something in my life that I could be proud of. I finally set a goal and achieved it, and it was the hardest thing I've ever done! ...The life I have today is so radically different from my life just one year ago. I have a safe, warm home to live in with people who love me. I have food in my refrigerator. I have hobbies now that do not involve scoring and using. I found out that I am not at all who I thought I was - I am someone who likes things like gardening and photography and writing...Today I have successful, kind, positive-thinking friends I can talk to or call anytime...I am able to be more honest with everyone, especially myself, and that is such a gift...the biggest miracle of this past year for me has been the birth of my son... I love my little boy so much... I will never forget what you have done for me and so many others by building your website and being at your computer when I called out in desperation. You are this incredible torch in the darkness for all us...Thank you for not forgetting us. Thank you for going back into the "war zone" now and again to help some of us out. You are a personification of the good in all Heroin addicts and ex-users. We all have something to offer this world. I can't wait to begin helping others more as I get stronger and stronger.

I have been in college for the last 3 years and worked my way up to an Assistant Store Manager position with the job I kept during my schooling. I am finished with my prerequisites now, and will be applying to the nursing program at my college. I have kept a consistent 3.8-3.9 GPA the whole time I've been in school; addicts tend to be persistent... I have worked " to get to this point; I even dropped rap music :) I just wanted to say thank you for helping me, inspiring me, coaching me, listening to me, advising me, and most of all-- for caring about me.

MF (male)
  "Hey-...i've been using heroin for almost 2 years, and in the past 6 months is when i've become on and off physically dependent. The vicious cycle of heroin use and withdrawl...god, it's the most painful thing to endure, whether for yourself or for someone you care about. I went to your site and read the whole thing- crying the entire time (especially the testimonials). The information you offer is so spot on and helpful, the best we (me and my boyfriend) have found so far. Thank you so much for creating this site and being there for complete strangers. After reading this site and seeing how strong and motivated my boyfriend is, I really do want to just get rid of the rest of my bags and start fresh, stay clean for the both of us. I really appreciate it, thank you so much for helping me and especially for helping my boyfriend to stay strong...." AB (female)

UPDATE: Day 1: "Hey again, today's day one. finished my last bag last night. i woke up feeling okay,...can't get comfortable. ..., and i'm sweating and cold ugghh. i can't get any more so i obviously just have to suffer through it. i can't wait to be done with this and i'm hoping tomorrow won't be as bad as i think it will be. thanks again for listening. hope all is well with you...i'm gunna go drink some water, take a hot shower and try and relax. thanks again- and i'll keep you posted!..."

UPDATE: "Day 3!... I forced myself to get up..., and talking to him (I came clean) helped a lot....Woke up this morning...- took some dayquil and advil. Got up and got ready for class, tried eating pretzels and peanut butter...definitely a struggle :/ My stomach started killing me so instead of going to class i went back to your website. i labeled my calendar! it worked out perfectly.. day 30 is my last day of school and i get to go home. I'm so excited! It made me feel good looking at the calendar. And to be honest, I was really skeptical of the music thing on your page, I didn't think it could have that big of an effect. However, I decided to try it.. so i went and listened to I Will Survive. Not gunna lie, it made me cry...but in a good way, like I was smiling too. I have it on repeat right now, really uplifting (: I know day 3 is going to be hard too.., but I'm excited to get through it and get to day 4. and then to day 30..." AB (female)

UPDATE: "almost done with day 4. besides occasionally being freezing or boiling, my main symptoms are headaches, a terrible cough...., and my stomach almost constantly being upset haha. oh and randomly feeling the need to cry? which is always fun. i know it'll get better soon and i'll get to move on from eating pb&j whenever i'm hungry haha.... thanks again...."

"Hey George. Thanks for your response. I've been off pizza (that's what we call H in Az) for 7 days. I've been taking subs. .4 a day for 5 days & .2 the last 2 days. I'm tapering down now because I won't allow myself to get addicted to something else. I've been on methadone before & as you know the doctor gave me massive amounts. I quit that because I got tired of being addicted to that. I've taken subs before. Never to quit. But because I didn't have pizza. As many of us know. A lot of the pain we feel is in our minds. Now that I know I won't be getting high. I feel much better. Usually on the subs I can't eat. But I never lost my apetite. I imagine I'll have some mild feelings of discomfort. But that's the price I pay for using that evil drug. Your site has lead the way for me & I thank you. I hope to 1 day give you an update that says 6 months clean etc. And I will. For those of you high reading this site wishing you could quit. You can. I was there. High as a kite & reading the words. I made a decision that it's not worth it to pay all that money to feel normal. I'd rather feel like poop for a bit & keep my money. And you will to. Listen to George. He knows what's best. Don't give up. You can & will do it. That I promise you. Don't be like me and beat yourself up. That was my excuse to keep using. It's not worth it. I'll keep you posted George. Thanks & God Bless." NM in Arizona. (male) 7 days clean

UPDATE: 5 weeks clean: "Hey George. How are you! Good I hope. Thanks for your encouraging emails! Today in about 3 minutes it will be 5 weeks clean! You're right. It's awesome to wake up & feel normal without drugs. I took the sub route. I took .4 a day for 5 days, then a quarter for 2 days, then a little piece for 2 days. You're right. Subs should be for short term use only..I even wondered if I should have just quit the heroin cold turkey instead...I used in Imodium, valerian root, Nyquil, & lots of music. I knew if make it because I knew I was done with drugs... Thanks so much for all your help. FOR ALL OF YOU READING GEORGES PAGE. JUST DO IT. DON'T WAIT. The sooner you follow his tips, the sooner you'll be free to really live life. Take it from someone that's been in your shoes & is still a work in progress. But anyone can do it. Just be strong & you'll be successful. God bless you George & God bless you all..." NM (male)

Ate, laughed, and real hard at that!... I am actually feeling way better.

He has now been there for over 6 months. He is doing really well. Enjoys feeling well again. He plans on remaining there for a while. I see him every so often. He looks healthy :) He is working, wanting to get more schooling… He has goals and dreams for his future.

And for all the parents, sisters, brothers, girlfriends, boyfriends and friends of addicts, you CAN help and 'influence' your loved ones to quit heroin and change their lives. You CAN make a difference. Starting now... Good luck. And may the good force be with you...
