So I was taking methadone on weekends for the past four to five years. I think i did a decent job of keeping it around a couple of times a week but i decided to quit two weeks ago. Im now thinking about taking kratom on weekends (sat and sunday) and would like to get your advice/experience. Apologies in advance for the long post. Let me explain a bit about my history:
I never had previous opiate addictions. methadone was available through a friend and i was getting it in bulk basically for free! I am a very disciplined person and have a demanding job which helps keep me away from drugs during the week so I started to take about 5mg on saturdays and sundays over four years ago. While there were instances when i would dose an extra day i made sure to quickly get back on schedule. Few months back (after over four years) i noticed that i am regularly taking methadone on fridays too and my dose has increased to 10mg for over a year. So i decided to quit. I definitely experienced light physical WDs and am currently struggling with mental withdrawals.
I know for a fact that i will never take methadone again. I definitely realized that the long half life caused it to stay in my body during the weeksays and i basically never had clean days. I got rid of all my supplies and the friend that use to hook me up has moved and i only see him once a year. So im done with methadone for good.
I have taken kratom before and feel like i could use it in my life to be productive in weekends, and enjoy the time when im bored or lonely. Three questions:
How long should i wait to start my weekend kratom schedule considering the long half life of methadone and the fact that i quit 15 days ago? I want to ensure my tolerance drops alot so i can enjoy avg doses of kratom (say 2 to 3 grams max). Should i wait until im clean a month or can i start this weekend (20 days clean)?
Would love to hear from any long time and successful kratom weekend warriors / true chippers (couple of times a week). Have you been able to keep your routine for a long time? Has your dosage changed overtime and do you still enjoy it?
Any of you chippers out there potentiate your kratom if so how often?
Thank you in advance.
