View Full Version : 4 days off coke
11-12-2007, 10:30 AM
I realized that a few days ago all my veins were unusable and i had to throw my coke habit. I have pretty much been locking myself inside my house and doing absolutely nothing. I am afraid that if i go out in public again I will be very pressured to buy coke. Any suggestions that could help me, what i could do. By the way I am new here. Happy to be here.
Welcome man and you'll have to go out sometime.I wish I had some worthwhile advice about how to handle it,but I haven't worked it out myself yet.

welcome to opiophile. i don't think i have any useful advice on how to handle things. you very likely might be pressured into coke.... there's only a few ways to deal w' that -- don't cave to pressure if you really don't wanna do it, stay away from anyone that might have it, or stay locked into your house. that's one of the classic problems around here... how to get away from something you don't want to leave.
and sorry to hear about your veins. coke's what did most of the permanent damage to mine... the shit is rougher on veins than heroin. good luck!

if u are trying to quit mabey now would be a good time to go to inpatient if u feel u need a safe place. plus it will help u get out of ur shell. or prehaps u can go to a place where theres some clean addicts hanging around , prehaps a church basement at 8pm at nite? thats all i can say bro. take care.

When people ask me about how I quit that shit I'm really at a loss for a clear answer. I quit cold turkey the first time for an 8ball a day habit and didn't have any problems, but then a couple years later I kinda got into it again. After a few months worth of partying, I realized where it was going, so I move up my plans to move out of the state. Now I'm about 2000 miles away from the group of drug dealers I knew, and it's pretty easy to stay clean. Moving away from the area associated with the drug use is really the easiest way to clean up for good.
The first time I got clean was because I was partying so hard, I realized I was gonna die if I kept it up. But there was always something in the back of my mind they kept me wanting to go back, and eventually that won out. You have to be really strong to stay clean when you're still around it.
Every addict quits in different ways. The main thing is you have to really make up your mind that the drug is hurting you and you really want to quit. Early on in my adiction (right about where you are now it sounds...), I kinda wanted to quit, and I said I wanted to quit, but deep down, I don't think I really did. I was still having too much fun with it and not enough negetive consequences. Eventually though, my health, job, and school was suffering, and I had sobered up long enough to realize people around me were really worried.
Sorry if I rambled on. It's late and I just got home from work. my main advice is if you want to clean up, move away or stay away from the peer group or area that has the drugs. Hope I helped, and good luck
Good to hear of your progress, but yeah your gonna have to go out eventually.
Just keep going over all the positives of being off coke, hopefully this will help against those cravings when you start going out again.

Keep it up, dudes!!!!
Yeah, that's the only thing that sucks about quitting....missing your friends.
I just quit four weeks ago and I haven't gone out or seen my friends since.
I'm sure I'll get to point where I'll be able to control myself...but right now, I don't trust myself around it AT ALL. :(
