...  by Smile!: Where does the phrase “going cold turkey” come from? Best answer: Answer by Monty“”Cold turkey” is an expression describing the actions of a person who gives up a habit or addiction all at once. That is, rather than gradually easing the process through reduction or by using replacement medication. Its supposed advantage is that by not actively using supplemental methods, the person avoids thinking about the habit and its temptation, and avoids further feeding the chemical addiction.

Zamudio estimated that more than half of those in drug treatment centers are there against their will, sent by family members with the help of police.

...  nothing else in the world going for me. I know this is kind of a rant, but does anybody have any advice or anything at all? and not just, “you should go to rehab” Best answer: Answer by SuperUberBobNote: Do NOT abuse another drug while taking oxycodone. First, slowly wean yourself off of the drug. Steadily drop the amount you are taking until you are no longer taking it.

I was once addicted to benzos, most notably Valium. I’ve been clean for several years and have had a more fulfilling life without it. Getting off of an addictive drug is NEVER easy, but stick with it and it will be worth it in the end. What do you think? Answer ...

...  by Amberly: What can my doctor do for ambien addiction? I want to get off of ambien and sleep aids all together, but when I try to do it myself, I get extremely sick and can’t stop shaking and vomiting. If I make an appointment with my doctor, what can he do for me? I dont feel that my problem is big enough for “rehab”, but I definitely know that I need some sort of intervention. Best answer: Answer by Dexter MorganYou can’t quit cold turkey. That is very bad for your body. You need to gradually reduce your intake and your body will become readjusted and no longer need it. Talk to your doctor about your desire to stop taking it, he will advise you how eventually quit. But you can’t just stop taking it all at once. Tell him the effects when you stop taking it. You need to GRADUALLY reduce your intake, most likely over a period of a month or two. I’m not a doctor but I know if you stop taking medication and try to quit cold turkey your body will react badly.
