When I quit drinking, I began to take opiates to get rid off the sadness and emptiness.
Without I even noticed, I had taken them two weeks in a row. Then I stopped, and had mild withdrawal symptoms, chills, stomach cramps, fatigue, weak limbs.
Tonight I woke up 1 o clock, and felt better. I think I’m over the worst.
The french author and addict, Jean Cocteau, was in a rehab clinic in 1920 and was cured for his addiction to opium. When he left, he wrote:
“Now that I’m cured, I feel empty, poor, heartbroken and ill. I float. The day after tomorrow, I leave the clinic. Where should I go”
I have to ask myself: Where should I go?
