Stopping Heroin
by Gino
Citation:   Gino. "Stopping Heroin: An Experience with Modafinil (exp103054)". Jan 17, 2019.

200 mg oral Modafinil (daily)
First of all I'm hoping to help other people with my experience. Sorry for my bad english, I live in Greece.

I have been a heroin user (only snorted) for about 7 years. I have tryed almost everything in my life. Now I'm giving up heroin because I almost destroyed my life and my family, but I must also tell you that it is the king of drugs in my opinion.

I used suboxone to get off of ''H'', but suboxone is also addictive. The first months without H, I almost gone crazy. I was very depressed and suboxone helped a lot. I tryed effexor, wellbutrin, and other stuff like that to help with my depression (I was a bit suicidal too and something had to be done) but nothing helped. Until I read about modafinil. So I went to my psychiatrist and prescribed some. I started taking modafinil with suboxone and, wow! Such a rush, happy feeling, motivated, a normal person with a little more creativity and energy than usual people! I started lowing the dosage of suboxone, till I finally stopped it.
I started lowing the dosage of suboxone, till I finally stopped it.
And guess what? I feel great! Ok, a bit of withdrawal syndrome, but nothing compared to my other experiences. Nothing to worry about. Nothing much. Today I went to a gym, I'm startin muai thai, I go to work every day, I see my friends every day, and I get a lot of pussy because I am very outgoing with modafinil. This thing has saved my life.

I've been on it for 2 weeks, but this is the first time in 7 years that I've stayed clean without problems that long. I have a strong feeling this will last. I dont even think about heroin or anything else! I really hope this will be helpful to other people because I know what it's like to seek for answers and help, and not getting any. Have strength.
