When you decide to make a change, not knowing what lies ahead can be scary. Your experience will be influenced by how much, how often, and how long you’ve used. Your mental and physical health and attitude will also play a role in how well you get through the desire to use.
No one is saying it’ll be easy, but if you expect stopping to be hard, it will be. It may be off-putting to face a comedown and the feelings that follow (withdrawal), but it can be helpful to remember that the unpleasant feelings don't last.
|Where you'll live||When you'll start|
|What you'll do||What your daily routine will be|
|What you're going to eat||Who you'll be able to talk to|
I moved away from Auckland, stopped talking to all of my friends, stopped hanging out with everybody, stopped going out on the weekends. I hung out with my family, started studying.
