Sub withdrawal is nothing, don't believe the scaremongering (2 years of oxy abuse over, jumping off sub at 2mg)

It is now morning of day 6, my sleep was a bit restless, but I woke up rested and feeling good both physically and mentally. Other than that, no real symptoms, no sweating no shaking (at any point), the diarrhea is gone, rhinorrhea is starting to balance out. The only thing that is left is that the RLS is bothering me at night, but it is not as bad as it was two nights ago, it might take a few more nights but even the RLS will probably fade.

It is going to be about 150 hours now, and I don't see a reason why it would get worse., but I was proven wrong about elimination half-life in plasma being different that straight chemistry, so I'm just waiting to see if it starts to get worse around the 200 hour mark like people have said, but I'll reiterate that I don't see that being the case since a lot of my physical symptoms have gone.

And I'll make this clear so I'm not misunderstood, I am very aware that staying clean is the real battle, and that there will be at least a month of psychological symptoms, but for now it seems the physical WD is fading, not increasing.

And despite there having been some negativity about my post, I still think that it is important to talk about this. There are a TON of people out there like me, who have only abused opiates for around 5 years and maybe haven't been on subs for long and just want to quit. And have been scared by the horror stories around. So I am saying this to THEM not at you og 20 year dope bangers, who've come to flex about their habit here for some reason.

The whole reason I started this thing was because I saw someone say that nobody would ever post about a positive experience, and that that is why all the WD stories are negative.
