Today's Recovery Moment is about

WITHDRAWAL

There are no upsides to addiction. It's all wicked, dark, and a slow suicide. Addiction, whether it be chemical or behavioral, bites back with venom. One of the many ways it does this, is in withdrawal.

I'm not going to get technical here on this page. I'd rather you clearly understand what happens in withdrawal rather than fill you with a lot of medical facts you don't need to know. I'll ask you to do your own fact checking if you want to dig deeper.

Basically, regarding all legal and illegal drugs, including alcohol, there is a common goal that all of these substances have. Their goal is to destroy you and then cause your early death.

Below are signs and symptoms of withdrawal. You never know when it will hit because your body won't tell you when it needs more. It will always grab hold of you when you haven't fed your addiction for a couple of hours. It all leads to your premature death for which you will have no warning.

The solution? Get professionally medically detoxed as an in-patient in an appropriate detox center or hospital. Then, enter recovery.
