Withdrawal different for each of us.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Kyle,

I don't really know very much about your situation but I can tell you that, like addiction itself, withdrawal is different for for each of us. When we use drugs, the drug attacks our brain and changes it. That's why we get high but it also why, when we become addicted, our brain convinces us we MUST use to be "normal".

Withdrawal is caused by our brain trying to re-adjust itself back to how it was before we ever used drugs. So the longer we've used, the more complex our withdrawal will be. Also, the type of drug used can effect the length and severity of withdrawal. Alcohol withdrawal is EXTREMELY dangerous and can be fatal if not medically supervised. Many types of withdrawal must be done with medical supervision and support.

I HIGHLY recommend that you go to a doctor immediately and seek medical support for your withdrawal. Anything you say to a doctor is confidential and they can advise you the best way to successfully manage your withdrawal symptoms.

When we're drug addicted our brain becomes our enemy and tries to get us to use our drug of choice. Medical support can help you overcome this problem.

Good Luck,

Debbie
