  • When I got palpitations I thought it was alcohol affecting my heart so I got scared and stoped for a month, Now that I know it was withdraws I don’t have to stop thank you doc.

  • It’s very sad that I can have a serious chronic pain condition, receive medically prescribed opiates from a Dr for that condition, & yet when I become physically dependant on narcotic meds I’m treated like an addict, which unfortunately is subhuman.

    Healthcare workers are taught that addiction is a disease, yet they refuse to treat it in an ED setting. No one asked for this disease but many have asked for help to be free from it. What they’re given instead is a lecture at best & cold hearted ignorance at worse. People don’t have to suffer…but they do. People suffer everyday when they don’t have to & I hope that history shames every last “professional” who did nothing to help.

  • Alcohol withdrawal was probably the most miserable, intolerable experience I’ve ever known. And “Kindling” is a very real thing. I got to the point I was unable to detox alone. The last time was in a hospital. I started hallucinating, had a psychotic break, and was strapped to a gurney for several days. That was followed a few days later by totaling my car in a blackout and breaking my neck. The end! At 5 years sober, I never ever wanna go back to that hell. Best to all who are recovering, or want to.

  • Thank you to the nurses like this. Ibprofen does fuck all for anyones pain. All that does is be an anti inflamitory. Look if someone is going through withdraw even if you cant offer morphine can they at least offer methadone or suboxone. I think addicts would at least appreciate not going through withdraws and if you do that may consider getting clean

  • drinking apple vinegar (alcohol free) mixed with water reduced my withdrawals a lot, no idea why but while i still felt little bit of tension; the shakes, the anxiety, depression completely disappeared and had no problem quitting then, while before i struggled for days to even reduce my consumption.

  • I am a mat patient. That means I take methadone. In march I had to get my gall bladder removed. I had complications and had to go back to the hospital right after being discharged. I’m so grateful they didnt treat me like a drug seeker. I get their caution but I’ve been stable for 3 years.
    Anyways, i was in so much pain they were giving me some pretty strong pain killers. My surgeon even had a daughter who was an addict and you couldnt fake the kind of pain i was in. Some nurses treated me like a drug seeking addict but i put them in their place real fast.
    Anyways they didnt dose me one day to try and bring my tolerance down and i had to go to another hospital. When i got there i started going thru withdrawal. I didnt know what was happening as i have been stable for years. The nurse called it and helped me tremendously.
    She immediately got me 2mg if dilauded so I can sit still long enough to run some tests. I am eternally grateful for nurses like her. I wasnt even a pain in the ass patient I was always polite, ect.

  • I thought I was dying. Thanks to this video I learned im just a anxiety ridden hypochondriac that drank too much and has the shivers.

  • My number one goal in life is to try to find a way to change this system, and to help other ex addicts get clean in a more efficient way.
    I am en ex addict for 10 years. The cows score thing is stupid, you can’t tell what a person is going through by looking at them. There are some signs, but i remember going into the docs in full withdrawal and they said i wasnt ready. The worst thing for an addict trying to get help is to reject them. The whole addiction system is f*cked, i couldnt get help for a long time because of stupid doctors.
    The lady doc in this handled things pretty well, thats more like it should be handled. We are so far off from how we should be treating addicts.
    Also suboxone can be much worse then other opiates. The fact that docs want to push a med that will be much more extreme with withdrawals then percocet, vicodin, ect is ridiculous. Most of the docs just want to keep the patient on the subs to keep getting money. When it should be a short term, then wean off process. Idk man i think we need to reevaluate the whole system.
    I did it with subs, but i had to wean off myself because my doc wanted me on them for years. I went 4 months weaned off and am doing great. Thats what we should be doing, and then focus on the after effects through other means. Also making patients go to a million different meetings, psychiatric docs, And tons of others things is too much damn pressure for someone trying to get their life back. Most of us dont even have cars to get to all these appointments. Its ridiculous, thats a big reason why i sped up my process. I couldn’t handle all that pressure at that time. I could go on forever about this. We need to change this, and make it easier for people to get help. I remember getting turned away because i pissed clean because i was trying to quit. They wanted me to use before i went for help. How ridiculous. There’s just so much wrong with the whole system.

  • I have been addicted to Methamphetamine, Opioids, alcohol and sex. The Hospital in my city did nothing for me. I finally got the help I needed at the Navajo Hospital, where they went above and beyond to make sure I was able to get the medication and mental health care I desperately needed. The nurses, doctors and psychiatrists there saved my life. When I was on drugs I didn’t want to live at all. Until I was able to become sober life was worth living. I still struggle with my addictions everyday, I assume I always will. And if “I can do it then anyone can do it”. Please seek help if you need it and if you’re not receiving the care you deserve, seek help elsewhere and don’t give up.

  • Winner of a video, I’ve been looking for “giving up alcohol for a month weight loss” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Aetincoln Peerless Ascendancy (just google it )?

    It is a smashing one off guide for discovering how to stop drinking minus the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my work buddy got great results with it.

  • I need to stop drinking definitely. Four solid days of hard drinking, I genuinely disgusted at myself. 18 cans, bottle of whiskey, two bottles of wine, and yagear as well. My head is down now. I thinking I need to stop all together so today is the day to quit.

  • Worst 3 weeks of my life… Uncontrolled shaking, dry heaving, hallucinating both visually & audibly. Wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemies. God bless anyone going through it, just remember there is light at the end of the tunnel…

  • FACT! For which no one will take accountability. The FDA, pharmaceutical Industry, etc…. approved around the year 2000 a NEW formula of Opiates and went all out. All for the sake of getting the patient UP and around with physical therapy. The added euphoric energy gave an immediate addiction to MILLIONS nationwide. Every person’s physiology is different so do not judge, this could be you. Billions have been made by Doctors, Organizations, the Pharmaceutical Industry, etc… because of this fact. This country would have always had addicts, but not half as many as are prevalent. Narcan is widespread and used over a million times a day. The same people who made the new formula made the narcan and they have made more money.
    NO One holds them accountable

  • When I was 14 I asked my for help from our local clinic. The only one here, I was told to go home and take tylenol for heroin use and speedballing. I got pregnant and I locked myself up and asked my mom for help. It’s been over 10 years, I had a healthy drug free baby. It was hard, months of pain and agony. It is possible it’s better to just not start. But I know what it’s to be teased like trash. It is in my file I still get treated like a drug seeker to this day.

  • I went to the er for bad withdrawal and I definitely felt like I was being treated like a sub citizen. I never asked for any opiates only iv fluids and clonidine and still the doctor felt it neccessery to tell me “we don’t give out pain meds for that here” LIKE I NEVER ASKED YOU FOR PAIN MEDS

  • I’ve had pretty good experiences like this. I was homeless in Paterson NJ and was admitted to the hospital for a week for an abscess I needed surgery on, and they obviously knew I was an addict, but the whole week they had me on a morphine drip. i thought maybe bc they didn’t want to deal with me going thru withdrawals. And I’ve been in the ER after overdosing and woke up in the hospital and the doctor was incredibly nice and soo sympathetic. I always assumed a hospital visit for an addict would be like the example with the first nurse, but it turned out to be actually a good experience. I was lucky ��

  • even though the acting was cheesy, this had me crying my eyes out. I was just at the hospital going through these exact withdrawals. the doctors werent treating me well, they all ignored me and when they discharged me i had no place to go because the detox that i was at just dumped me at the hospital with a dead cell phone. if a nurse were to ever actually look at someone with disease of addiction as an actual human being, a daughter, a mom, a sister, someone that matters in this world, do you know what a difference that will do for someone that struggles with this disease?

  • Opioid withdrawal is for some but not allI’ve been using opioids for 35 years every day from 100 mg a day to 600 mg a day with no withdrawal no problem nothing but pure pain relief.

  • I’m clean after years of oxy and later on also heroine. As a result I ended up taking Buprenorphine for 7 years. Buprenorphine was way worse to quit, cause it’s so long and feels like it never ends, BUT it was the best decision of my life to quit. Took me like 3 months of fighting the withdrawals and then another 3 months to get my head straight, but then life started to feel pretty great again. The gym helped a lot too. Made the whole process somewhat “easier”. Good luck to you all who’s fighting this. If you have the will and the motivation, nothing stands in your way of getting clean!

  • It’s sad When never BEEN throw this hell they just walk past,need more caring people like This, should be ashamed she’s a gunkie etc, you make me sick all you doctors say 5% Will help do there job and bless her heart for that,never judge a person b4 ur self have a good look,no one is perfect some people have addictive personality,once on This devil very hard without help ✌️��…

  • This video is good and all but in reality, unfortunately, no one in the hospitals will treat you like a human being. Psychiatric hospitals are especially much much worse.

  • Lol she would not be impressed by the prospect of getting nausea meds and a cold compress. The feeling of acid and barbed wire ripping her bones and every fiber of her being apart would kinda overshadow that stuff.

  • And you hear uneducated people shit on benzos all the time. These are life savers. Many people died because “doctors” tried non benzo “treatment” on heavy drinkers. These people should be accountable, sadly they are not.

  • I remember taking Vicodin 5mg back in 1999 and thinking, “Holy fuck these are miracle pills!!” Little did I know they were hell in a pill. The Doctor just kept upping the MG and amount until one day I ran out and two days later feeling like death. I asked my buddies mom what was up and she was like, sweetheart you are withdrawaling.

    Two years from 5mg Vicodin 2 times a day to 40 Mg Opana’s to finally graduating to heroin. I walked that dark path for 10 yrs until finally quitting cold turkey in August 2010. Been 10 yrs this month since my last heroin dose and damn it feels good walking outside and feeling you are in control again.

  • dont be a majority not all seizures are from something you may think you have a problem with cases show that circumstancs and or situations may lead to seizures both short and long take yourself out of a situation that you find yourself in if its making you feel uneasy and have a look at your life to see if there is a pattern emotionally or physically and see if that helps cant hurt to try cheers take care

  • I’m in such bad shape I wake up and within 10 minutes to a half-hour I get dizzy I start to dry heave I start to shake sweat tears come out of my eyes and then I run to the liquor store and buy a couple beers and I’m fine. Every morning though is a nightmare.

  • The female ” Doctor ” is so passionate and caring towards the patient! So much better than the male” Doctor “. He’s a fucking asshole!

  • I know this is listened and well known but after getting rid of alcohol in my system approx after 5 days my sleep is amazing! I forgot what proper sleep was, I can function so much better and feel happier even at this stage. Don’t overlook how important sleep is and how disruptive alcohol is for it.

  • I would never suggest the idea of injecting suboxon it will send a addict into extreme withdrawal so bad they will need an ambulance. Guess how I know. Ex addict. Clean for 2 years not enough people know the science on these topics

  • I was accused of this 10 years ago, how I had never taken a opiate in my life. After being ignored for hours at the ER and told my hands were red and I was seeing and hearing things because of drug withdrawal (again I didn’t take even Tylenol for a headache) hubby carried me out and to a regular doctor office of a doctor I never seen before. She walked in took one look and called a ambulance. I was having a allergic reaction to bactrim given to me for a UTI and Kidney infection the day before from the same hospital. I had Steven Jhonson syndrome and all the skin peeled from my body. I spent 2 weeks in the icu burn unit and was unable to walk again for over a year. Needed to actually take opiates after the fact, had they treated me immediately for the drug reaction I wouldn’t have had too. I still cannot tell the story to people face to face without crying

  • I hate that I ever picked up alcohol to begin with
    People really aren’t missing anything
    It’s a shitty feeling afterwards
    All the time
    Just keep on relapsing
    Terrible lifestyle
    It truly makes everything worse
    I want to stop and never start again
    Everywhere I go
    Anyones house
    There either drinking or smoking
    Can’t get away from it unless I lock myself in house and never come out again

  • What if you turn the seasaw the other way around? Can you get addicted to glutamine (food) too? No shit some fat people are craving for food even when they have heaps of reserves lolol

  • Best way to get off heroin in the uk is this buy 100mil of methadone and 30 diazapan set a date in your head and stick to it get your sim card write down all family members and non drug users then throw the carb day one sling all needles away and smoke heroin when you feel the withdrawal coming on do this for 3 days then take 20mil of methadone then miss a day smoke heroin then miss a day and take 15mil then repeat tell you get down to 5mil then take diazapan break your days up into 2 hours of not doing the Same thing get a hobby join a group and keep going its not going to be easy but you wont have a heavy withdrawal trust me were all different but no one has died over a withdrawal god bless Paul uk

  • Im on subutex 8mgs I went to the er for a sinus infection so bad it swelled my eyes shut almost completely. I told them I was on subutex so please no narcotics. I was trying to tell the dr the antibiotics the urgent care gave me 2 weeks prior were not working and that I thought maybe he could put me on a different antibiotic. I begged him and he refused when I started to cry and beg for them to either flush my sinuses or give me a migraine med he rolled his eyes and said are you sure your taking your subutex. I told him I was and he said fine ill give you something for pain. My relief turned to anger when the nurse came in with dilauded. I refused the medication and when the dr came back he said there wasn’t anything else he can do and sent me home. Over the next month I got sicker so I had to go on a stronger antibiotic which is what I thought in the first place but because I had been on antibiotics for over a month I ended up with c diff. For those who don’t know if you take subutex and try to take another opiate it just bounces right off and doesn’t work. He as a dr should have known that but he probably thought I was lying and drug seeking. I’ve never been so mad. Even if they couldn’t flush my sinuses at least he could have explained why and not just assume someone wants drugs when they specifically said no narcotics.

  • I wish I can go back and change it all. I was drinking alot at a young age. I swear if I can take it back I will��. I’m still young and i don’t want my brain to be really fucked up

  • Alcohol withdrawal was the worst experience I’ve ever had in my entire life. I used to drink 7-12 beers every single day sometimes more for almost 4 years or so and I stopped cold turkey unfortunately, and went through absolute HELL is the best word I can use. I had massive anxiety all day, depression, brain tingling, headaches, body aches, heart and chest pain, and honestly one of the worst parts of the whole thing was the panic attacks though I had to go to the ER about 10-15 times and finally went into a rehab facility this went on for about 4-5 months til I found the right medication. I am now sober and have been for about almost 2 years. I occasionally miss having a beer with friends or in a family function but I will never, EVER want to go through that again. It was the worst time of my entire life. Just thought I’d share my story of withdrawal.

  • I’m so sorry to read all of the comments from people who have been through withdrawal and weren’t treated with the compassion you should have received. I’m a nursing assistant at the moment and waiting to start paramedic training. I promise that I will fight for my patients who are in this position. All of you deserve compassion, understanding and dignity. You’re not alone and I hope for a better future for all of you affected by opioid addiction.

  • This is absolute fantasy, it’s not how you are treated in the real world.. it’s nice for a storyline, but it’s not how people are treated in the real world, this is not reality.

  • people are generally stupid soo its no surprise at all and i look at the future generations but all i can tell is were going extinct

  • Very useful info for any one treating et oh withdrawal. Particularly: Thiamine before Glucose. “Banana bag” or IV vitamins in a glucose saline infusion turns the IV bag yellow colour hence the name of the protocol.It is still used in many places. I saw many elderly with et oh withdrawal. Quantity of et oh consumption should be elicited on admission ( 1 or2 glasses of wine in an elderly, dehydrated, emaciated patient are more than enough to cause severe DT when et oh consumption is discontinued ). Elevated level of et oh in blood on admission can be a risk factor for severity of withdrawal later.

  • i do admit i did say i was depressed but im not i was seeing if the government would actually agree its inhumane my living conditions but im not sad because of that im telling you the drugs and the weather is bothering alot

  • That’s how I’ve was treated today by my new doctor she seen I wanted off of this and I was planning to just get more sub and go on with life……but thanks to her and the amazing plan she suggested not forcing me to do anything uncomfortable, I’m giving it another shot confident that I can do this. I never been treated this great as someone addicted…… its almost like she was that nice lady in the video who actually cared about the patient. Wish me luck. I’m going to do it

  • So, why am I nauseous after a week of no drinking and a few shots alleviates that? the other thing that makes my stomach churn is when people say “Have you been drinking?” when I haven’t.

  • this is great!! if you could go more in depth into clinical manifestations, treatment etc that would be awesome but really really good explanation into the physiological changes of alcohol dependence/withdrawal thank you!

  • There are many factors in quitting smoking including eg motivation and support from peers.

    One place I discovered which successfully combines these is the Quit Smoking Crusher (see the website QuitSmokingCrusher.com) without a doubt the best plan that I’ve seen.

    look at all the website QuitSmokingCrusher.com and awesome testimonials.

  • I couldnt imagine withdrawing from hard drugs… I withdrew from a prescribed low dose anti depressant and it was terrible… brain zaps are terrible.

  • I’ve been drinking for 28 years and everyday for 26 I’m tired it’s hard. I drink at times when I don’t want to I just it because it’s there if you don’t drink alcohol please stay away from it, it’s a poison that will rob you if you let it

  • YES! THIS IS HOW HEROIN ADDICTS LIKE MYSELF SHOULD BE TREATED! That nurse and doctor were life savers. Ive had judgemental asshole doctors and nurses like that asian doctor, they dont give a fuck about your pain. They see you as a junkie and a “drug seeker”, and that youre TRYING to inconvenience them. No. All we want is to be alleviated from the hell that is opiate withdrawal. Not get high off your meds. We just want to feel able to manage and feel normal when a situation like this arises. Take note if youre a nurse or doctor like the one in the beginning. Acting like that is how you get your patient to just give up, rip all the IVs out, and walk the fuck out. Can you blame them? You aren’t doing anything whatsoever for their pain. Just making them feel worse. So if you won’t help us get help, and help us feel normal, we’re going to leave and help ourselves the only way we know how. By scoring dope, getting high, and going through the vicious cycle over again, and since we were just in the hospital for ODing, theres that chance that we may just end up dying. Sure, its a choice we made in the beginning, but after that, it becomes a horrible disease, and we lose all ability to stop ourselves. Our body is in control now. Addiction is in control now. The only way out… Is proper help and recovery. Which sadly… Many, many, many addicts do not get. And end up paying the ultimate price, which is completely unnecessary. Recovery is there. You just need the right people to help you, show you kindness like this lady did, and push you in the right direction. Thats all it takes. Because once you feel you can do it, and you have a support system, even if it isnt your blood family, thats all it takes. It IS attainable. No addict is a lost cause.

  • Wow it’s scary how much this patient sounds like me. No track marks cuz I snort, but wow back surgery started my addiction. I just called the 800 number, and am getting ready start detox. I’m detoxing from 90mg daily
    Methadone use and heroin/fentynal. Last time I tried to detox myself I ended up in the emergency. I dread this detox, I’ma be so Ill, but I know I need it. They have Suboxone at Shar house, I hope it helps. Last time I tried that stuff years ago, it made me instantly bouge, I mean half an hour later I was sick. But I hear it’s different if you take it with nothing in your system. Last time I took it was while In mid use. This time I’ll be in mid detox. Let me know if anyone used subs while at a detox, and if they really work or not for detoxing.

  • I felt so much anxiety on Monday I drank beer, first time in two years, but I went overboard, and now it’s after midnight, technically Friday, and I’m going through awful withdrawal. Took some Melatonin but think I’m too tolerant to it, ugh, oh well, at least the Internet is here.

  • Ive only had night sweats when i stop drinking for days id say i drink alot about 3 to 4 times a week but if i go a week without drinking i feel different like i dont want to drink and then the next time i drink i wanna keep drinking and re start the cycle.

  • They stuck me in the psych ward for voluntary opioid detox.. they treat you all the same. Until we reassess and re-educate the medical staff this crisis will never be under control.. I didn’t get the help I needed so I self discharged went home and relapsed.. I feel just like this lady

  • Seems like there should be some kind of treatment available to gradually get People off of the pain pills, when they are discontinued by the Doctor, in order that the Patient doesn’t have to resort to starting Heroin. There seems to be an awful lot of People that started that way, taking the Meds then when they stop, it seems to Me that the cold turkey approach is just a guarantee that they will seek out Heroin in the absence of the Prescription Opioids.

  • God bless the nurses and doctors who have compassion and empathy for their patients. We need more health care workers who are in the field for the right reasons.

  • Just started to drink a pretty decent amount no hard liquor just beer or white claw but damn good thing I saw this before I got sucked in it was getting to almost ever day

  • Can binge drinking once or twice every two of three weeks cause these problems too?I binge drank for two days and now I’m noticing I’m a lot more irritable out of no where

  • 5:00 interesting about admission. We always admit patients with etoh intoxication especially with +BAL regardless they want to be admitted or not. So far, I never had a patient refused admission… I read an mediolegal article that these patients cannot safely consent to be discharged until their BAL is negative as they are clearly under the influence. The article pointed out that a patient was discharged from the ED, had an accident of some sort and proceeded to sue the hospital and provider for discharging him and won… Yikes.

  • My (old) doctor got me addicted to pain meds for my chronic back pain when I was 21-22 and I had no idea what dependence or addiction to opiates even was.. I had no idea I could become addicted and he never warned me. Just fed me massive amounts of them for years (along with benzos!). Long story short, I’ll be 34 tomorrow and been on methadone for 6.5yrs. It saved my life, and I’ll probably be on it for life. Without it, I’d just have to go back to pills for my chronic pain. And then I’d be in the same boat.
    During my addiction time, I went to many hospitals with my withdrawals and I’ve NEVER been treated like a human being. Only ever like TRASH! I’m a person too!! I’m a single mother who never asked for this addiction!!

  • I’m on day one of detoxing off of Tylenol 4 with codeine I been taking it everyday 2 times a day a total of 4 or more a day for the last 6 years. Man it sucks but I got threw the first day but now I can’t sleep. My legs are restless and I feel an annoying feeling all over my body and I feel like throwing up. I didn’t eat the whole day but I was drinking water. But all I can think about it popping another pill at least half… Anyone can give me tips I’d appreciate thanks in advance!

  • Winner of a video, I’ve been looking for “can nicotine withdrawal cause hallucinations?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Paybigailon Unimaginable Prestige (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? It is an awesome exclusive guide for discovering how to discovering how to quit smoking minus the headache. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.

  • I have drank heavily almost every weekend from the age of 16 with little to no hangover symptoms, I am 27 now and only in the last couple of months being hungover I feel HUGE anxiety, literally cant relax or be around people and feel like I’m gonna have a panic attack at any moment, the only other substance that used to give me panic attacks before I quit was weed but that was while I was actually high and not after. I actually used to drink alcohol while I was smoking so that I wouldn’t freak out. I am 4 weeks sober now and the anxiety is starting to disappear. so basically the same reason I quit smoking weed is the same reason I am now quitting alcohol. Gonna live that sober life ��

  • This was great, I’ve been looking for “alcohol withdrawal sleep apnea” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Aetincoln Peerless Ascendancy (just google it )?

    It is a good one off guide for discovering how to stop drinking minus the headache. Ive heard some great things about it and my brother in law got great results with it.

  • Alcahol caused me to follow strangers to their house and I blacked out and woke up with no underwear soaked in urine. I’m traumatised by this experience and it made me stop drinking

  • I’ve never had a nurse treat me this good much less a Dr. I know I’m opioid dependent. I have am incurable disease that only options are symptom control. As much as I’d love to not be taking any medication, there’s currently no alternative… Many,”addicts”, are a direct result of a patient never getting adequate pain control, and self medicating as shown in this video. Regardless. Chronic pain and addiction are legitimate medical conditions. Neither should be judged. Period.

  • I think your protocol would prevent a LOT of severe active alcoholics from getting help. Obvious that you’ve read a lot about this but not lived any of it.

  • It’s highly dangerous to cut off someone cold Turkey. They need to drop down slowly. I myself have had excruciating withdrawls from pain meds given to me after they removed my pancreas, bowls, gallbladder and adrenal glands due to cancer. I can no longer regulate my body anymore without manually taking medications. Its extremely painful. I have had times I missed my dose or a doctor that is not specialized with my treatment makes a idiot decision that could end me.
    I have suffered withdrawls many times and sometimes it feels like death is better. Your body goes into shock. For those doctors who dont care get to go home at the end of the day and have a normal life while they leave withdrawl patients in agony for days.
    It’s not happening to them so no big deal I guess. Now you cant even get help with depression and anxiety disorders while taking any pain meds. I see the suicide rates going up more now then ever. Have to admit it has crossed my mind. But, I have two beautiful daughters who keep me strong and need me.

  • My goodness, I cant think without a drink. I think I need to be drowsy right now. I really need to stop. Im watching this, because I want to stop. �� Only I cant due to a death that happened to me…

  • I’m 22yrs old I am heavy drinker for 6yrs and lastweek I drink 4 bottles of beer and I experience very seriously fast and hard heartbeat and shortness of breath that last in i think 45mins like am going to have heart attack shits scary and this first day of June I drink just to bottles of beer and the palpitations happen again and much more scary coz it last more than an hour I can’t breath been dry inside feels like fainting until now I have mild palpitations and breathing problems can anyone help me

  • 24 years old. Been drinking for years. Heavily on and off. Somedays i wake up with the shakes or i get them randomly through out the day. People also question if i tan or if im sunburnt, even durning the winter but its from alchohol abuse. Just really worried for my health but its so hard. Wish everyone the best on their journey to figure this out and get it resolved����

  • I got my first drink, but I drink excessively on friday and sunday.. tuesday night I got palpitation so worse that I wasnt able to sleep, Im scared, I think Im not going to wake up when I fall to sleep. Til now my breathing and pulse rate are not normal like I used to especially when working, feeling confused.. and always feel sleepy at day and everytime I wake up Im palpitating.. help I dont even know Im going through

  • I’ve binged drank weekly and suffered from alcohol withdrawal for 10 years. I used to drink for up to 3 days but it ended up being up to 7 days consuming (and forgetting) my whole week. I’d be aware only on day 2 and then something would completely take over me and I’d go into a braindead program to just drink and drink without thought.

    3 months ago before the virus, I had the worst withdraw effects of my life after consuming 10 litres of Smirnoff and a case of Fosters throughout a week. It lasted 6 days and included all the regular stuff such immense feelings of anxiety, dread, auditory hallucinations, visual hallucinations, closed eye visuals, palpitations, racing thoughts, dizziness, hot and coldness and dripping wet with sweat.

    This time around, my CNS was completely and utterly shattered. I had to hold onto every things in the rooms (from bed to kitchen) to attempt to pour a glass of water. I managed it and as soon the pint glass was full, my body went into an uncontrollable frenzy. I had a fit. The water went all over expensive electrical equipment. I emptied the pint glass completely by violent shaking. Ongoing insomnia prevented me from sleeping and I could’t close my eyes without seeing peering, evil eyes and a stream of insane, random images as if Wikipedia and other peoples conversations were being streamed through my brain. I couldn’t look at anything or watch TV because my eyes felt like they were pulling out their sockets.

    I was literally in a no-win hell. I knew the only way was to endure it and ride it out, rolling around on the bed, sitting up (with crazy, huge convulsions doing so), then lying back down to somehow attempt to get one moment of peace. I was quite literally pleading to God for it to come to an end. It took around 5 days, gradually getting better, with one symptom disappearing one by one. I couldn’t hold a glass to my face, couldn’t use the phone, nor answer ongoing annoying iMessages. I was hearing conversations in electrical buzzes coming from the kitchen women whispering as I passed trying to walk to the toilet to violently vomit anywhere but my bed and carpet which already had fresh pools and dried areas of sick.

    I said over and over again, aloud ’Never again! Never again!’.

    Unfortunately I witnessed a death recently and I hit the bottle with the intention of just doing one night (I had done a few of these successfully), but I went down the old slope once again with that same thing taking over. Although I only 4 litres of vodka and around 8 cans (in contrast to my last experience), this too was hell. On top of the usual symptoms, I witnessed extreme visual hallucinations. I looked up at the painting at end of my bed (Bathers 2 Paul Cezanne) and the whole scene of people turned into a vivid animated scene of debauchery, akin to Sodom & Gomorra. Hell was literally playing itself out.

    Amongst this, I went to the toilet for the umpteenth time to be violently sick. This time the wretch was extra violent and I thought to myself that I’m surprised my innards aren’t coming up. Low and behold, I witnessed a sizeable spurt of blood. I expected to see this in my stools and confirm something serious, so my anxiety and dread was tenfold. Thankfully all seemed well, but naturally that probably wasn’t something minor not to mention all mentioned symptoms.

    This time, it lasted 3 days and nights with no sleep. I slept for 4 hours yesterday and I now feel normal today. The grace of life returns once again and I feel reborn and raring to go. I need to embrace this feeling. We don’t appreciate health until we don’t have it.

    This really needs the mark the final, final time and I’m the only one that can make it so. Keeping my head in my self employed job (which I previously only worked on and off) and my interest in music is hopefully going to be my saviour in this venture.

    I can’t repeat, nor emphasise it enough. The alcohol withdraw experience is quite literally a living hell.

    The infuriating thing is, is my willingness to now try and share my issue, telling friends and family of these experiences to try and justify why I am the way I am, only to be greeted with such responses as (and I quote)…..’When I’m hungover, I just have a banana and a bit of toast’….

  • drink alcohol dont do pills trust me i had so hard time quiting those in lockdown i wasn’t able to get pills so i had to quit i am clean though not feeling weak felt really weak i mean hardly could walk for a month now only on nicotine i am 21 years trying to quit nicotine for past 10 years cant quit n.r.p sucks

  • Just because someone experiencing withdrawal doesn’t intend to quit drinking doesn’t mean they don’t deserve treatment for their withdrawal. expecting that someone is ready to make the ENORMOUS DECISION to recover/remain sober doesn’t mean they deserve to be let go just to suffer from withdrawals or die. this is fucked.

  • I’m a little over 60 hours into my detox, just thought I’d share my experience. I’m about 1 year into HEAVILY drinking, around 12+ shots of vodka a day, 26 y/o male. Had no idea what to expect, but within the first 24 hours, the first noticeable symptom I experienced was anxiety. I hadn’t really known what it felt like before, but I almost immediately recognized it. Which was almost a healthy experience because I have a better understanding and compassion for people who suffer with anxiety go through. My skin would also flush and itch with almost any exercise. Was very difficult to eat anything as well. But by far, and still going through this, is insomnia. It’s been incredibly difficult to get any kind of sleep, even with alcohol-free Zzzquil. Also experienced some minor auditory hallucinations about 48 hours in, but besides the insomnia, most symptoms have stopped. My appetite is back, skin hasn’t flushed a bit, and no further anxiety or hallucinations. I’d consider the first day the hardest by far, if you can make it past that, you got this. I also understand my drinking had only lasted around a year, so my symptoms could be much more minor than others, but just thought I’d share my experience. Thanks for the video, helped a lot!

  • Was looking for videos about this I been drinking hard for 10 years and I’m only 24 I drank three bottles in less then two hours I havent slept in two days all this is true in the video the bugs,shaking of the feet and hands loosing of feeling on the face

  • I went to treatment center run by Salvation Army in Toronto Ontario Canada for 6-8 months. Withdraw in detox was the worst. Dr. Gave me Conadine for withdrawal. Picked up again. Not going through it again.

  • whoever produced this vid, hasn’t been through it. You are NOT going to sleep for days. Maybe an hour or 2 here and there a night… at best. The only good advice is to drink lots of water and take vitamins and minerals. You are going to spray out your ass, even with immodium. finally, finally found a decent spine surgeon. No more pain meds needed.

  • I’ve never done heroin, but I’ve been sick for just shy of ten years with a long lone of illnesses, disease, and chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. I’ve been treated so many times in the ER especially, as a drug seeking addict. It’s very rare to find someone who will treat you like a person who matters. I thank you for this info for those who don’t comprehend what we go through

  • I honestly think they should just give them morphine if you really don’t wanna deal with them give em a morphine drip and call it a fucking night because unless you put them to sleep they’re gonna be twitching screaming shitting puking dying basically without ever actually dying

  • The asian guy in the beginning is exactly how nursees treat you in the hospital. You could literally be about to die from withdrawals and they just ignore. Have legitimate chronic pain and a history of drug abuse and they just neglect you. I fuckin hate spiteful self rightoues nurses

  • The asian guy would be way better then whut they do at the hospital in my area they dont o enough test just ecg blood work they never cheeked my lungs witch were sore when breathing. They even argued that the things under my jaw were saliva glands so I drove 2 hrs away and they couldent believe that they said that because it was clearly swollen lymph nods lol.the women doc would be like a god.

  • Cows score 35. Yikes! I hope that woman is a real life nurse. Btw. That would b amazing to get that treatment in a hospital from wd

  • “increases your likely hood of death”?????? Is this guy a moron? Your likelihood of death is already 100%. Academia and the medical professions are filled with incompetent IDIOTS!!!!

  • Just wonderful, been searching for “is tiredness a symptom of nicotine withdrawal?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Paybigailon Unimaginable Prestige (just google it )? It is a great one of a kind guide for discovering how to discovering how to quit smoking minus the headache. Ive heard some super things about it and my colleague got cool results with it.

  • I’d just like to say, I am 2 months smoke free. BUT this is definitely a difficult battle. I don’t think professionals are honest or truly know the effects nicotine withdrawals or quitting cold turkey takes on your body. It says online that withdrawals normally only lasts a month, but I am definitely still suffering. I have the worst paralyzing anxiety, I’ve had anxiety/panic attacks since day 3 of quitting and still am today (May 24th, my 35th Birthday) makes 2 months since I quit (1 pk a day for around 20 years). I have literally only had 3-4 days in a row of feeling normal in a week the other 3-4 days a week I’m suffering from horrible anxiety (shortness of breath, pounding heart, irregular heart beat, difficulty swallowing, difficulty sleeping, racing uncontrollable thoughts, trimmers, chills, heat flashes, static electricity feeling throughout my body, etc, etc). Pure, utter misery. NO I am not on anxiety medication, why, because I do not ever want to become addicted or feel dependent on another substance again. I’ll be honest though, I never knew how hard quitting was going to be. Now that I’m a nonsmoker I believe cigarettes or nicotine (since it’s considered addictive) should be band PERIOD. DO NOT SMOKE �� ��!!

  • 2 weeks ago I became REALLY ill.
    Reason? I think I had a bad case of the flue. I did NOT drink at all ofcourse. I usually drink a 6 pk of beer a night.I feel as of now I am still feeling symptoms of the flue but not enough I cant work. Ever since the flue I have had a contstant low grade nausea. Especially after I wake up and ready to leave for work. Today I had to call in late cuz I needed to lay down. I had nausea and felt weak in my legs. It went away and continued to work. I got my jobs done. It was still early. I was so tired,drowsy I passed out and slept in my work truck for atleast 4 hours. I am not a Dr. but something tells me I have heart problems/ restricted artaries.
    I thought maybe because I dialed my drinking way back I am experiencing mild symptoms of ALOT less sugar in my system.
    I am currently trying to get bloodwork done. I dont know why I am asking for help when I didnt get all the preliminary things done so somebody could give me an educated guess on what I might be experiencing. I am just frustrated. My boss is getting there too. I am not a hypochondriac. I dont weeny whine about every little ailment.
    It has to be serious for me to openly express concern.

  • And a withdrawl period of 5 to 10 days?? Yeah, lets be real, try about 30 to 45 days. So aggravating that people put false info like this out there.

  • Had my first seizure a week ago during work. Stayed 5 days in the hospital but right away doctors knew it was a seizure due to alcohol withdrawal, it was a scary experience and I’m afraid of having another drink and it happening again

  • The problem for me is that i struggle to sleep if im not drunk. Its 3:30 in the morning and i just cant. Not to mention i always crack after 2 or 3 days of sobriety. Fucking hell, i know i should quit but i really dont wanna. I love booze

  • Many thanks, I’ve been looking for “long does physical nicotine withdrawal last” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Paybigailon Unimaginable Prestige (search on google )? It is a great exclusive product for discovering how to discovering how to quit smoking minus the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate got great results with it.

  • Again! You are my savior! Only you can help me to understand the root of the problem! I wish you can make more videos about psychosis, anxiety, mood disorder, drug addiction, whatever!!! Thank you so much Dr. I am respectfully to you!

  • Methadone. They now have something that is surgically implanted that will disperse medicine up to six months. No daily witness bullshit or anything like that my buddy is on it and says it’s awesome. You have to be on a lower dose (8-10 MG’s of suboxone)

  • By my experience, I can tell you that #1 is definitely the wrong thing to do. Do not try to see a so called “professional” or doctor. Doctors want your money, they dont REALLY care about your health. They will try to put you on something like methadone, or even worse, suboxone! You think your addicted now? Just wait til they have you comming back for years and years! Be your own advocate folks, do not trust your doctor. Sorry, just my opinion/experience. Get through your withdrawal, find your resolution, done. Stay strong!!

  • It’s even bad if someone goes to a new doctor and asks for strong pain medication if the6 have chronic pain and they don’t know you. It’s going to get worse. I’ve heard rumblings from the U.K saying that even over the counter medication like Panadol or Ibuprofen is useless long term. Do they really want everyone to just suffer? It’s great to sit in judgemen5 when you’ve never gone through something like a bad accident!

  • I can only speak for myself. To make a long story short, i binged alcohol for roughly 15+ years. Not the “oh have 2 to 5 drinks per night”… Nah nah… This was 15 to 25 beers on an empty stomach almost every night. The days i did not drink i had severe hangovers and shaking with low blood sugar and all that comes with alcohol.
    Of course it escalated more throughout the years as i became more resistant to its effect. And oh yes.. I was really deep down it. I used to steal shit to be able to afford those 10+ beers or wine boxes. I was totally dived into alcoholism. I did not care about myself or my life only that i would get that shit into me. (Not that far so i started raiding hospitals for their alcoholic hand soap).
    It became so bad at one time, that i started pooping blood every time i passed stool. Not from my intestines but my anus was so shredded from constant diarrhea every day it was like paper… One hard bowel movement and i would paint my bowl red.
    Needless to say that did not stop me from drinking… Fast forward years… What finally stopped me was not rehab or understanding addiction. What stopped me was, understanding the mental causes of the triggers that wanted to make me escape that reality i was living at that time. As it has been said before. Don’t treat the symptoms, treat the cause of it.
    I realized, i can drink until the cows come home and my anus leaks out all the blood in my body… It wont be enough and the pain would still be there!

    You have to face yourself and be true to yourself. It is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. But once you face yourself and you are true to yourself. To your wants, your needs, your feelings, your life and share it with the world. That is the foundation that will make you You! When this happens… There will be no more need or wanting. If you want to drink, drugs, smoke.. whatever.. Its all up to you. The pages in your diary are blank from this point on. What you fill them with is what you want to put there. And don’t want a diary.. Throw it away. It is your life you. Make the most of it for you.
    It is where it should have started in the first place. But some of us (including me) gets side tracked. But no matter what anyone tells you. It is never too late. Forgive yourself and love yourself. <3 Even if you end up alone. Life is better experienced soberly. Why?.. Because when you become old.. You will have good memories to remember. Not hazy drunk fueled binges that meant nothing for 15, 20., 35 years.

    Live your life <3

  • This video is nothing like the real withdrawal. Trust me I’ve been through oxycodone withdrawal and it was like hell. Took exactly one month before I got better.
    If you want to stop your prescription oxycodone, first talk to your doctor and make sure to have a strong support system around you or you will not make it.

  • I’m very happy that I have clonazepam that I’ve never taken.. ive been drinking 9 years.

    A liter a day.

    This is day 1. I’m so sick.

  • Personally, I believe kicking cold turkey is the best way to kick heroin. With the fentanyl, percocets, etc, I don’t know the grip it has on you. I kicked off suboxone and didn’t realize it. It felt like my back was itching and twitching from the inside.
    No suboxone for me. Any opiates no matter the brand the Withdrawal Effects are the same. Good Luck to the Brother’s and Sisters Black or White, Latin, Asian, Etc, B’cause these drugs do not discriminate and neither should you and I. Good Luck once again and May God Bless for those who believe and call on him…

  • I did a high dose vitamin C IV (50,000mg) and had no withdrawal except for my hand shaking for a few minutes. They don’t want you knowing how easy it is to get off of it. I haven’t craved it since then either and it’s been two years. Google an article from the 1970’s about the doctor who figured out how high-dose vitamin C IV detoxes the body super fast. This makes it where you have little to no withdrawal. Which makes complete sense. Doctors will try to tell you that it won’t work but it worked for me after trying the hard way to stop for years.
    My doctor is doing high dose IV vitamin C for so many people and it’s working. Taking vitamin C by mouth won’t do the same thing because the gut doesn’t absorb enough of it to detox the body fast. It sounds way too simple but it worked and I’ve seen it work on tons of people. I wish someone told me about it sooner. My doctor also said that there’s no money to be made with Vit IV’s and it’s all about making money to most doctors and rehabs. He said that rehabs would shut down and many of the doctors prescribing it would no longer have business, so that why many make it look so hard to stop and why many don’t really want people off of it.
    If you want off of it, google about high dose vitamin C IV’s. Find the article about the doctor who discovered this in the 70’s. He had his life threatened but all the doctors and rehabs they didn’t want people knowing about this and I think something bad happened to him.

  • Just wanted to thank you for the video. I am very much struggling, and my Clonazapam is not working anymore. I sometimes take 15 pills of it to try and settle me down. If you have any suggestions please throw my way. What’s appreciate it

  • There are a few ideas for stopping alcohol quickly
    Try to eat food while you are drinking this cuts down the amount you drink.
    Take a break from drinking.
    Keep track of how much you drink, then you know if you are cutting down.
    Set yourself goals don’t make them too hard at first.
    Pick 1 or 2 days or every week when you will not drink at all. Next, try to stop drinking for one week each month.
    (I discovered these and the reasons they work from Adoette drink plan site )

  • Dr Strong, do you agree with President Trump about the essential role of the kidney inside the heart? Just kidding… Thank you as usual for your insight and for your dedication to the student/newly-graduated community.

  • 4 days cold turkey and I’m gonna rip someone’s head off �� I’m normally super calm and I feel like I’ve lost control over my emotions. UGH

  • I have a long history with alcohol and know many alcoholics, I never heard of anyone being detoxed with Valium. I thought that was oldschool. Always Adivan or Librium. I’ve been detoxed with both. From my experience as a patient Librium is the best medication for alcohol withdrawal. I was surprised it seemed to be your last choice.

  • I am from austria. austria was overrun by heroine in the 2000s. After a few years they locked up all the dealers and put all the addicts into opiate maintenance, whhich is called substitution therapy in austria. They told us that we would be in this program for a month or two and then get on with our lives. I was 19 at that time. I am 34 years old now and iam still in OPiate maintenance…..
    Why was it allowed in the first place if i could go back i would have gone cold turkey back then i wasnt even that hardcore hooked on the stuff but the doctors had incentives BY THE POLICE to get EVERYbody who was affiliated with street heroine into the program to reduce crime because the few 100 addicts were responsible of 40 percent of the crime in the city or whatever…… So basically they lied to us.
    And i remember that before that NOT EVEN TERMINAL CANCER PATIENTS became opiates against the pain because of the slim chance that they would survive and then be addicts. Thats how serious they used to take ADDICTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If i had known i would have distanced myself from my friends back then and i would probably be a lawyer now. Because not every junky is a stupid low life. I was a straight A student who had Matura with excellence and studied chemistry on a university. So this problem is a problem for all of us. Heroine is in the suburbs now. Even Fentanyl is imported from china. its just incredible.

  • I remember one nurse told me after surgery that I wasnt really in pain.. and it was bc i had a high tolerance to narcotics due to “my life’s decisions”.. I was hemorrhaging and almost died.. bc she didn’t believe me.

  • I will help you, read this, I dedicate this to all the people who are fighting this terrible addiction. It’s easy and comfortable to detox, but don’t try it at home, I was an opioid junky for 10 terrible years up to 400 mg per day, I was in palative care and they subscribed insane doses, It stopped working for pain, I had to do it just so not to go in withdrawals. Just find a detox center, it could be as short as 3 days, go in there with moderate withdrawal, they will give you subutex and anti anxiety meds, 15 minutes later you’re feeling
    good, you will sleep like a baby, they will pamper you for up to 7 days, I did in 3. There is no reason to suffer at home. There are detox centers everywhere. Of course you’d want to stop doing it. Or you’re just wasting time, or just want to take a long break from drugs. It’s easy as phk. I couldn’t believe it how easy it is. Don’t do it by yourself, or cold turkey, you will suffer needlessly.

  • My dad is in the ICU right now as he’s suffering alcohol poisoning and is experiencing tremors including dry mouth and can’t keep his food down or fluid and my heart is breaking ��

  • If I ever got such a sweet nurse, I would never leave the premises again.Usually they are big fat angry constipated people, that just wait for their turnus to be finshed.

  • I was treated the same after a motorcycle accident at a trauma center, the pain mgmt doctor here at suburban trauma mind you I arrived in a fucking helicopter its his jib to weigh the fact the im opioid tolerant since I take 180mg daily of oxycodone and I got in a head on collision on my motorcycle they put me on a fent pain pump.75mcg light dose and they did not wanna understand maybe im in pain because im not opioid naive but he did not care so I discharged myself and went to my primary and had to treat myself with a huge script he wrote me which is way more dangerous when you have serious pain like that but lucky for me I know what the fuck im doing. you cant depend on these fucking jack ass fucks. I swear you better have a rainy day stay off effective opioids for proper analgesia when you need it as I need it daily and learned you cannot depend on them

  • this is such bo***cks iv been a functioning iv addict 28 years, trying to get clean with another straight roast ( no meds). Get sleep? wtf who makes this fake crap. I think the shortest length of time was 9 days before i could sleep, the longest 14.( iv done many roasts). Take my word you wont feel anything like normal for 4-5 weeks. someone do research before putting out this misleading nonsense.

  • Can someone please help me out? I drank vodka and felt nothing the next day after. Then 2 days later I drank whiskey and I felt very depressed for 3 weeks (almost commited suicide) is that alcohol withdrawal or my bad reaction to whiskey

  • I don’t think I’m all that addicted (physically) I consume 12-15 drinks daily and despite white knuckling it, I can go about a week without, but it’s been over a year since I took a break. I’m not exactly getting any better. Just wondering if I might get a seizure but doesn’t seem like it. That would definitely be something new.

  • This was great, I have been researching “withdrawal symptoms of tobacco cigarettes” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Paybigailon Unimaginable Prestige (do a google search )? It is a smashing one off product for discovering how to discovering how to quit smoking without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate got amazing success with it.

  • IF YOU START READING AT LEAST TRY TO FINISH IT: Hey I’m yonathan and I’m 19 and I wanted to let you know that all the pain you felt and continuously feel are being seen and noticed, and the devil who makes you feel like this w lies and fears is going to get judged and punished for this. I used to be smoking every day and couldn’t be happy unless I smoked, I hated life and didn’t feel any sense of happiness or joy or my mood would swing so often So I couldn’t stay happy. My life changed when I got to build a relationship with Jesus Christ Ik it’s cliche everyone says this but I’m being serious I tried meditation, manifestation, and all other religions but still felt HURT IN MY SOUL, because I had sins and bad things I kept doing and I needed to stop AND have God forgive me for them

    IF YOU START READING TRY YOUR HARDEST TO FINSIH READING IT. I want to give you the opportunity to accept Jesus into your lives. Same way there’s evil and the devil, there is good and God but the main difference between the devil and God is that the devil tries to show you he is strong by hurting you but even the name of JESUS IS STRONGER THAN ALL THE EVIL FROM in hell. Jesus is stronger than all of your problems and all the attacks the enemy tries will fail as long as you are aware and know that Jesus is stronger. Right now say and BELIEVE “In the name of Jesus I am strong” and see how that makes you feel. I believe WHOLE HEARTEDLY that Jesus is definitely watching over you and literally is heartbroken about what the devil has done to your lives. Please, Jesus DEADASS wants a relationship with you, it might not feel like he’s there or that he cares but he does FRFR. He came down to earth to die for your sins and give you salvation and if you confess w your mouth that he is the son of God and dies for your sins and ask for forgiveness, AND BELIVE he is hearing you and forgives you, you will be saved. It’s soooooo much to explain but I urge you that you accept him into your lives and I promise you that your life will change, i know he changed my life from being addicted to weed and partying to the point of emotional and mental exhaustion where I didn’t even know who tf I was living inside of. PLEASE SAY THIS PRAYER: “Jesus, I believe you are hearing my prayer right now and I believe you are going to heal me from this pain the devil put me in. I confess you are the son of God and died for my sins and through that sacrifice, I am saved from my sins and have salvation with you in heaven for eternity. Lord I’m going to live for you and change my life, I BELIVE you are going to heal my body and mind because through the pain you endured, I am healed. I rebuke every plan of the devil to attack me and I will condemn him and he will give me seven times more of EVERYTHING he took from me because through your blood I have the authority to demand it from him. The devil is weak and is a loser, that is why he is trying to drag your people down with him because he knows he’s burning in the lake of fire forever. I am forgiven by your sacrifice, I am redeemed from my past, and I have a new future with you. Amen.” Say and believe this prayer, in Jesus name. I urge you to build your faith by watching Jesus content on YouTube and reading the Bible. Literally search up questions you have in the search bar and you will find it. Search what verses to read and you will find it. Really look for the heart of Jesus and you will definitely find it. If it’s hard for you to pray daily, agian lol, search up “prayer for… anxiety, depression, loneliness, healing, etc.” in the search bar and you’ll find some powerful prayers. STAY W HIM DAILY by reading the Bible and watching about him on yt EVEN IF ITS FOR 30 minutes a day, Jesus sees your effort knows your heart. He will heal you as long as you believe he is already doing it right now.

    LITERALLY close your eyes and imagine in your mind that he is taking away pills or drugs or or old clothes or dar clouds over your head, imagine him taking these things off of you as you listen to the prayers or as you pray. PLEASE DONT SLEEP ON THIS MESSAGE W/O TRYING IT FIRST. PLEASE JESUS IS DEADASS REAL AND HE LOVES YOU MORE THAN YOU CAN EVER KNOW!!
