A few of years back I knew a guy who had sufferd a Heroin addiction of 15 years, and was genuinly serious about trying to kick the habbit for the
first time. For 11 of those years he'd had a Methadone prescription and after going cold turkey for about 8 wks from the H, he went to his Drugs and
Alcohol centre and told the he wanted to get off the methadone. So OK they said we'r here to help, firstly we'll start by reducing you meth and
gradually get you off it. But this guy had tried this soooo many times in the past and with no succes so he proposed just not going to pick it up from
the Chemist, they said "that'l never work your best off doin what we recommend" thats when he realized for some reason they seemed to want him to
stay on it. As stubborn as this guy was he decided not to go, and the next day his phone rings, " hello" "yes hello Mr ****** your meth is waiting
at the Chemist, you comming to pick up?" NO he replied. Next day they phoned again and again untill he finally gave in. As dissapointed as I was that
he had given in, I can honestly say he tried. This guy is no longer with us anymore as he died last year of a methadone overdose, He took a wks worth
all at once I guess that was the only way out for him, he was 33.
P.s most people can't get that much methadone at once because they have a daily pick-up where they have to have an eye witness inside the Chemist to
watch them drink it to prevent them from selling it to buy heroin.
