Hi everyone, I've been taking Kratom off and on for about a year. There were a couple months when I didn't take any, but I've been taking 40-60 grams a day for about 3 1/2 weeks. Over the last year I went cold turkey a handful of times and just toughed out the withdrawals. Each time I've withdrawn the withdrawals have gotten worse and longer. Long story short I tried to cold turkey about a month ago and the withdrawals were fucking excruciating for 6 days and on the 6th day I couldn't stand the agony any more so I caved and started taking it again. I'm now in a recovery program and I'm determined to get off this shit forever so I started tapering. Today is day 1. I took about 45 grams today. I'm going to try to take about 30 tomorrow which I think will be fine. I expect it to get a little rough when I get to 20 or less. When I get low enough to feel the withdrawals I will stabilize for a few days then continue my dose decreases. I'm starting this thread to keep track of my progress, share my experience with others, and hopefully get some tips, advice, and encouragement from you all. I'll keep the thread updated. If you've done a Kratom taper please feel feee to share your experience here as well as any tips or advice. Wish me luck. Thanks!!!
