My husband and I started smoking about a year ago. We have begun because we are pretty severe heroin addicts and on a methadone clinic. They test us weekly, and we knew it wouldn’t show up on their tests, and we get very sick of the sober life because we just can’t understand how people can live sober and be happy.
One day we decided it was getting pricey so we stopped and about a half day later we both started with SEVERE nausea. SEVERE!!!!!!!! Then, it progressed HARD!!!!! We were projectile vomiting (which I had no idea that one person can produce that amount of barf or distance.) we were both on opposite sides of the bed with buckets.
After a few days, we didn’t even have enough energy to get up and make it to the toilet. I was lying on the bathroom floor for hours. We are both Veteran drug users and have detoxed from dope numerous times. It is just as bad but worse in a different way. This barf circus lasted for ten days, and it doesn’t let up.
It’s not like each day you get better and better. No, its HARDCORE suffering the whole time and there isn’t a damn thing you can do to help yourself. The only advice I can give someone is trying to get a script from your doctor for Zofran.
Or if you’re lucky enough to get a stronger anti vomiting scenario because Zofran is not always high enough and drink Gatorade. It will be near impossible to keep it down but try to keep as much down if you can. I would also suggest a benzo of some wide variety.
However, if you are red flagged and can’t get narcotics try Clonidine, use your best judgment as to how many pills you take because I’m NOT a doctor and not responsible for any poor decisions anyone else makes.
I am just offering what helped us. It is not the cure, just what l did to get through. Watch TV and have someone who cares about you to distract you from your impending doom. It’s inevitable; you will not get through this unscathed I promise.
One more tip, don’t use cold turkey. When you think you want to stop-start immediately cutting down on only smoking when you get queasy then spread out longer and longer. You will still detox but it won’t is as hard. Good luck. ???? ???? ???? ????
