How to Quit Heroin and Stay Clean for
If you've managed to make it to day 7 then
there's no reason why you can't make it to day
40 and beyond.
If you did your best to follow the tips in my
article, “How to Survive the First 7 Days” and
managed to survive those first 7 days then great!
If you've managed
to taper down from methadone or suboxone and are
finally clean then great! Wonderful!
know that you can do this.
If you forced yourself to take long fast walks,
jogs or runs then you should be feeling a lot
better by now. If you stayed in the hot tub
filled with hot hot water throughout the day
then you should have experienced great relief.
||And if you kept
your diet light, took vitamins, Imodium at high
levels, drank lots of water and Gatorade then
your digestive system should be feeling better
by now. If you want to quit heroin, avoid relapse and
stay clean for good then you're going to have to
do whatever it takes to continue to fight this
battle for many weeks and many months to come.
You're going to have to start doing everything
different from how you were living your life
just a few weeks ago. And for the most part,
you're going to have to start doing the opposite
of how you've been living all these years.
You'll have to create, design and write your
master plan down and then stick to it for good.
Start by addressing the triggers which caused
you to want to get high which you’ll most likely
encounter during the first 3 to 6 months, such
as boredom, depression, negative repressed
feelings; your dealer, old dope-friends,
familiar places and familiar things such as
music, diet, lifestyle, other drugs etc...
||Learn how to deal
with your attitude and emotions
people start getting high simply because they
have too many deep emotional problems in their
lives. But then once they take a sniff, smoke or
shot of heroin, then all of those problems seem
to disappear within seconds, at least for the
However, since you will no
longer be using heroin, then you'll have to find
other ways to release those suppressed feelings
and deal with them in a more positive and
You'll have to learn how to
cope and deal with those feelings of guilt,
fear, anger, sadness, boredom, loneliness, and
anxiety in order to avoid relapse and keep
yourself on the right path. You can't keep those
type of negative feelings trapped inside of you
for too long or else you'll go crazy, break down
and give in. You'll have to talk about it and
deal with those feelings as well.
Many people have
found success in dealing with their
emotional difficulties by talking to
others about their problems. And one way
to move forward is by letting go and
talking to someone about your problems
and then deal with it by finding
positive solutions fast.
Write down your problems on paper. You
can start off with the biggest problems
first and then maybe you and a friend or
a counselor can come up with possible
ways and solutions for dealing with
Then take the next
problem and deal with it in the same
manner; and the next one after that.
Find and create solutions and then try
it. And sometimes, the best places to
find people to talk to about these
problems are at your local NA meetings
and/or similar outpatient drug programs,
and even private therapy sessions as
(Narcotics Anonymous), or other outpatient
treatment programs, you may find other people
going through the same types of problems that
you're going through or at least close to it.
And many people have found solutions which have
worked for them by speaking and listening to
other members in their NA group meetings. There
are also NA drug therapy counselors there who
may be more than willing to help you work out
your problems in a private setting as well.
And believe it or not,
there are many caring people who are willing to
just listen and help you find solutions for your
problems if you open up and talk about them.
Whatever you do, don't hold it in and don’t hold
back. Don't keep your problems bottled up inside
you for too long as this can cause you to cave
and eventually relapse. Find someone to talk to
and then talk to them.
A vital part of your master
plan to quit heroin, avoid relapse, and stay
clean for good will be to talk to people who
will be able to better understand what you're
going through - people who you can talk to about
your problems, feelings and emotional
Whether it be in NA, drug
counseling, an x-addict or drug-free friend who
has been through the same problems or similar,
or at least to lend a helping ear, you'll need
to let it all out to someone. Don’t keep this
stuff trapped inside you for too long or else it
will get to you.
You can start off by going
to NA meetings or an outpatient program just to
attend, sit there and listen to others speak. If
you want people to listen to you then you're
going to have to develop the courtesy and
patience to listen to others first. You'll have
your chance. If you begin to become concerned
about other peoples problems then other people
will become concerned for your problems.
word on attending NA meetings:
NA is not for everyone. And although it’s better
to be around users who want to quit rather than
old dope friends who continue to use, it would
be best to not meet with NA members outside of
meetings, in the street, at the mall, or at a
coffee shop alone. If you're all going to go out
to the mall for example, then it will be best to
go out in small groups rather than to go out
just you and the other person alone.
Many times, there are
people attending NA meetings just to satisfy
loved ones or are required to do so as part of
their court/probation agreement.
And many times, those same
people will seek out the weakest ones in the
group and then try to get together with them
outside of NA meetings. They may just want to
talk, hang out or see if you know where to buy
dope. And as a result, they’ll both fail,
relapse, and go right back to where they
started. It happens. And all it takes is one
weak apple to cause the other to fall.
However, to be fair, it’s
very possible that you can and will find some
genuine people in NA who really do want to turn
their lives around and those are the types of
people that are best to be around – people who
want to change and turn their lives around.
Those are the best types of friends to have.
Attending NA, group
meetings or counseling, every day, every other
day, or weekly, and learning how to deal with
and handle day to day feelings should definitely
be part of your master plan to quit heroin,
avoid relapse, and stay clean for good.
However, (and this may
sound contradictory), if you’re relocating to a
new location where you don’t know anyone who
uses drugs then you might be better off staying
away from NA completely. If you’re weak, and
making a fresh start, then you would be much
better off not knowing anyone who uses drugs or
knows where to buy them. Sometimes, it’s better
to be safe than sorry.
And I will also add that NA and attending NA
meetings is not for everyone, and may not be
what’s best for you. But of course, that’s up to
you and that’s something that you’ll have to
decide on your own. But talking to someone,
anyone, is essential to your recovery.

Don't let those thoughts of dope linger in your

In order to quit heroin and stay clean
for good, it would be best to separate
yourself from all of your dope friends,
drug users, and anyone who brings out
and reinforces the old you and your old
Because just like music, who we hang
with will also have a great influence
upon our lives just as well.
And if you want to quit heroin and stay
clean for good then the best thing to do
would be to separate yourself from them,
all of them.
It doesn't matter how long you’ve known them or
well they treat you. It doesn't matter if he’s
your best friend, or she’s is your best friend.
It doesn't even matter if she's your girlfriend
or if he's your boyfriend. If they get high and
are not ready to change then the best thing to
do is to separate yourself from them or risk
getting pulled back into that old lifestyle.
All it takes is one simple phone call and you'll
blow it. Just their voice, their energy, their
influence, will remind you of the “good times”
of how good you used to feel from that heroin
rush and other drugs as well. Then you'll begin
to dwell on those thoughts, and then just like
that, within minutes, you're gone, out the door
to get high. That’s how easy it is to get pulled
back into that life.
We have 2 types of friends in life; those who
bring out the best in us and those who bring out
the worst in us. Being around any of your
dope-friends will most likely bring out the
worst in you. And in time, you'll end up right
back where you started.
Depart from them, unless of course, they too
want to change their lives. If your friend(s)
want to quit heroin, stay clean, and turn their
lives around then help them by directing them to
my website and let them go through the same
struggles that you went through. Otherwise, they
will become a hindrance to your recovery.
It would also be best to delete all of their
phone numbers from your cell phone and get
yourself a new cell phone number as well. Burn
all your bridges.
And when the time is right, life will send you
the type of friends that you can become to
someone else. If you want to have good,
drug-free, clean, decent friends, then you must
do your best to become a good, drug-free, clean,
decent friend yourself.
And there’s no way that you're going to become a
drug-free friend by continuing to hang around
friends who use drugs. My mother always told me,
“tell me who you hang with and I'll tell you who
you are”. How right she was.

your life around then the best thing to do is to

may want to quit heroin, but then go out
to hang with the homeboys to smoke weed,
drink beers and hit parties such; but do
this, and most likely, you will fail.
Sooner or later, you will fail, in one
form or another.
You may want to start going out to the
clubs, the strip clubs, the bars, and
hang out on the corners where the
homeboys hang; but do this, and most
likely, you will fail.
Those dark places are no
place for the new you. And nothing good can come
from there. The energy and influence being put
forth from those places and the people therein
will eventually bring you down. The environment
and the music will eventually draw you right
back into that old familiar lifestyle.
The familiar music alone
will bring back memories of all the good old
days when the only thing on your mind was
getting high and getting high again. And before
you know it, those memories and those feelings
will rush in, overtake you and draw you right
back into your old ways. And worst of all, those
places, the clubs, and the bars are jammed
packed with demons of all kinds.
If you want to quit heroin
and stay clean for good then it would be best to
stay away from all the wrong places and start
hanging out in the right ones. The old saying is
so true - there's no place like home. And if you
have no business being out in the street then
the best place to be is at home.
And if home is too close to
the dope spot and keeps causing you to fail then
move. Relocate and move. Relocation has always
been a powerful strategy to get away from heroin
and a deterrent from going back to your old
ways, old friends, and old places. 'Relocation'
is a great way to stay clean and start your life
all over again. But whatever you do, do your
best to stay away from all the wrong places.
Quit ALL drugs for good
Now this is something that’s hard to
accept for most people. But deep down inside
most people know this to be true.
Too many people would like to quit
heroin but continue to smoke weed or
take lesser evil pharmaceutical drugs
such as Xanax for example.
And most people do so not because they
need it, but because they still want to
get high in one form or another.
||However, the best way
to quit heroin and stay clean for good is to
quit and stay away from all drugs once and for
all, including but not limited to:
Weed, hash, cocaine, crack, ecstasy, meth, LSD,
PCP, heroin, all lesser evil opiates, pain
killers, anti-depressants, steroids, strong
alcohol and/or anything else that causes your
thinking to become distorted or the chemicals in
your brain to become altered.
In order to succeed in your recovery, your mind
must remain clear at all times in order to think
clearly, stay on guard and make good and right
decisions as well. And if you keep using drugs
such as weed for example, then you're always
going to have that get high, drug using
And if you want to quit heroin, avoid relapse,
and stay clean for good then the best thing to
do is to quit ALL drugs and stay away from ALL
drugs, once and for all. Try not to convince
yourself that there's no danger or risk of
relapse in doing other types of drugs. The best
thing to do is to get out of that drug using,
get high mentality, and start your life all over
again, without drugs.
And from here on out, if you start to say no to
all drugs then I promise you, your life will
change. You will change. You will quit heroin,
stay clean, and turn your life around. Because
it’s not just about quitting drugs, it’s about
changing your life for the best. And you can’t

||Keep yourself busy
each and every day
If you want to quit
heroin and stay clean for good then
you’ll have to do your best to keep
yourself busy each and every day.
One of the most
important things that you’ll be doing to
help you avoid relapse and stay clean
for good will be restoring your health
with the help of diet and exercise.
One of the best
things you can do in your life will be
to join a gym and start doing exercise,
lifting weights, and aerobic activities
first thing in the morning, Monday
through Friday. This is the best way to
start your day off.
This is by far one
of the best ways to continue the battle
against your heroin addiction and to
keep you on the right path. And this is
one of the best ways to regain your
health, self-worth and self-confidence
Just make sure you do everything right,
right from the start. You may want to go
out and buy a Muscle and Fitness, Mens
Fitness or Fitness for women, or any
credible exercise magazine at your local
You can also go online to:
||Then start reading to
educate yourself on diet, nutrition, and
exercise. You become what you read. You become
whatever you take into yourself so you might
want to start taking in good, healthy, positive
things in order to produce a positive outcome.
It's time to get your health back. Start waking up early every
morning, Monday thru Friday, around 5, 6, or
7am. Get dressed, grab your mp3 player and head
straight to the gym, or straight to the park, or
to the street or anywhere to get some form of
stomach returns to normal, then start eating a
healthy diet in order to provide the proper
nutrients needed for quick recovery and muscular
development. Most likely, you’ve been weak for a
long time, and now you need to gain some muscle
and some strength.
If you want to quit heroin
and stay clean for good then the best thing to
do is to join a gym and/or working out at home
and become a new and healthy you. The healthier
you become, then the greater your chances will
be for staying clean. And a healthy lifestyle
counteracts drug addiction.
Once you've been clean for
a few weeks and feeling better physically, then
you'll have to start finding ways to keep
yourself busy during the day and into the
evening as well.
And the best way to
keep yourself busy and out of trouble is to
You may already have a job.
And if you do, then for the next several weeks,
it might be best for you to let a family member
or spouse deposit your checks for you and hold
on to your ATM card as well in order to avoid
the temptation to buy drugs. Although this may
sound extreme, this strategy works and helps you
to save money as well.
Sometimes, the best way to
eliminate the temptation is to cut off access to
the source which in this case is money. No
money, no drugs. Therefore, you might want to
have someone you trust help you to manage your
money so that you won’t waste it on drugs, at
least until you’ve developed enough
self-discipline and self control to resist the
urge to buy and use.
If you don't have a job
then the best thing to do with your time, (after
you finished your early morning workout, at
home, or at the gym) is to go out and start
looking for work from 9am to 12pm every single
day. Take a lunch break. Then go back out to
look for work from 1pm till 5pm.
Seek, and you will find.
Don’t stop looking for work until you find work.
Don’t stop filling out applications. Don’t lie
on your application as well. Be honest in all
things. Don’t stop knocking on doors. And sooner
or later you will find work. But for now,
looking for work will become your full time job.
You can always fill out
applications at fast food places like Subways,
Taco Bell and McDonalds, or convenient stores
and gas stations like 7-11, BP and Circle K, or
shopping malls, clothing stores and department
stores like Walmart. Or you can search online
for specific jobs at Monster.com
And if you really want to
get off to a fast start then start filling out
applications at your local temp work agencies
and labor pools. Those who show up for work
first thing in the morning usually find work
that very same day.
Work is work. And for now, take
whatever you can get and be thankful. Yet at the
same time, continue to fill out and turn in
applications always striving to find the best
job possible. And in time, doors may begin to
open and opportunities may come your way.
Working hard all day long
is one of the best ways to keep your mind and
body busy while also keeping you out of trouble.
And if you’ve been a rebel all this time then
this will help you make your way back into
society while learning how to behave around
normal, law abiding citizens. Welcome back to
the real world.
Then after work, or after a
long day of looking for work, head home for
dinner or to your local NA meeting or to school
as well. I realize that NA is not for everyone
and not everyone needs to attend, but for many
recovering addicts, NA has been a life saver and
a great way to fellowship with other x-addicts
who are trying to change their lives just as you
are doing now.
During the week, it's best
to be out and about only if and when you have
important things to do such as going to the gym
in the morning; going to school; enrolling
yourself and taking new classes at your local
college or training institute; going to work or
looking for work; attending NA meetings;
visiting other drug-free family members and
friends for dinner, etc. And then come home
early in the evening to be home with the family.
If you have a family, then
you can spend the rest of the evening with the
family watching good, clean, inspirational
movies, attending to your favorite hobbies, or
taking up a new hobby such as learning how to
play a musical instrument for example.
It's important to always
have things to do at home. Make a “things to do
at home” list if you have to. But whatever you
do, don't allow yourself to get bored at home or
at any time for that matter. The best places to
be during the week are at work, school, at a
drug-free friends or family’s home or home at
your place safe and sound. This will help you to
stay clean and stay out of trouble as well.
Save your clean, fun
activities for the weekends. Watch a family
movie at home; go shopping or walk around the
mall; go out for dinner with family and
drug-free friends, visit your local art museum,
go out to a good, clean, music show suitable for
Go bowling, go-kart racing,
bike riding, hiking, mounting climbing, golfing,
fishing, or horse back riding. Take long walks
in the park. Play sports or hit the batting

Go to the beach, amusement
parks, the zoo, water slides and whatever other

You can adjust the fine
details according to your own personal needs and

not wasting money on drugs then you should have
enough cash to go out and enjoy life the way it

And when you do go out with
your loved ones, try to spend less money on
yourself and spend more money on them. Some of

||Create, design and
plan your future
Don't dwell on the
past. Instead, focus on creating,
planning and designing your future.
Most people don't
realize this but you have the power and
the ability to form and create your life
by writing your goals down on paper. And
then formulate a step-by-step plan on
how to achieve those goals in a
step-by-step manner and then just do it,
one step at a time! It’s that simple.
||You can change the
course of your life just by taking steps in
carefully planned directions. But to do this you
must write down your goals first.
I'm not talking about
buying a Lamborghini, owning a billion dollar
mansion, and earning a trillion dollars per year
with bonuses. I'm speaking of setting realistic
goals that will help you to better your life and
to enable you to help and serve others to the
best of your ability.
Then create and design a
step-by-step plan that will help you achieve
those goals as fast and as quickly as possible.
'Think' hard on your goals and step-by-step
plans, see them in your mind, and then execute
your plans with full force by taking action each
and every day and doing all of those steps as
fast as you can. And in time, with patience and
hard work, it will all come to pass.
You may not get exactly
what you want, but if you plan well and attack
your plan with full force then you might come
pretty close to obtaining your goals, and quite
possibly, a little bit more.
So start creating your
future by writing your goals down on paper, and
then formulate a step-by-step plan to achieve
those goals and then start doing it. That’s it.
It’s that simple. If you want a new life then
plan it and do it!
There’s a wonderful life
out there waiting for you. All you have to do
now is go out there and get it.
And while you're writing,
you can also start writing about yourself. You
can start writing about how your life used to be
as a heroin addict, what you did to quit heroin,
stay clean, and turn your life around. Then,
once you're done, you can publish and post your
writings online, on a blog, in an ebook or on a
website for all others to read and admonish.
You can use your life, your
experience and your written words to help change
the lives of others who desperately need to read
real success stories of people like you who quit
heroin and turned their lives around. This will
give them the hope and strength they'll need to
quit heroin, stay clean, and turn their lives
around. You can make a difference in the lives
of others just by what you write and publish for
all the world to see.
I'm doing the same exact

that sooner or later, you'll be faced
with the temptation to use or

break down, relapse and go back down
should always have a plan of escape
ready, written down and kept on your
person at all times. Read it often as a
reminder. Keep it engraved within your
heart and your mind.
However, since your
past relationship with heroin has always
been a love/hate relationship - a love
for heroin and the high, but a hate for
what it’s done to your life, then there
can only be one solid principle that
will work all of the time when executed
with full force.

to remember is to say no and

brothers and dope sisters, if you do fail and
relapse, then don't think of it as a total
failure, yet don't let it slide as if nothing
happened as well. Instead, get mad, at this
poison called heroin, and get mad at yourself as
well. She, heroin, just knocked you down good
and most likely stole your money once again.
But instead of staying down
for the count and allowing this poisonous drug
to ruing your life, GET UP, dust yourself off
and keep pressing on with full force. Put that
failure behind you and keep moving forward.
Don't let that one failure
become an excuse to go back to your old ways.
Stop right there and then start fresh the very
next day. Learn from this and use it as a lesson
to remind you that you must always stay on guard
at all times and do your best to refrain from
slipping up again.
Then if at all possible,
contact a friend, your parents, your family
members, or a drug-free friend. Talk to someone
about what you’re going through and how it
directly or indirectly had a part in causing you
to mess up so that it won’t happen again. Get
up, reach out for help and get back on 'the
right path' as quickly as possible.
