1 List Price: $29.95 FREE SPECIAL NOTE: There are some things in this report that might ruffle a lot of feathers. That s OK, I recently had something of a heart-to-heart with a bunch of my readers, and it really got me fired up and I decided it was time that SOMEBODY spilled the beans What they aren t telling you 13 Inside Secrets of Symptom Free Opiate Withdrawal and Lasting Recovery September 22 nd From the desk of Reilly Johnson Boise, Idaho Opiate Freedom Center I have 13 Opiate Withdrawal and Recovery Secrets I am going to share with you but first I have to tell you exactly WHY I have prepared this report for you. Because, to be frank, these secrets could be worth their weight in gold to you in fact, if you were to learn this information at a rehabilitation center or from a doctor, it could cost you thousands of dollars. However, I decided to help others, for FREE. Keep reading to find out why I am going to be blunt here, because I am more than a little bit ticked off

2 There is a lot of mis-information out there about how to end opiate addiction. I know, because I just asked a couple thousand people about it and boy did I get an earful! They told me what their problems are. What their questions are. And they told me exactly what was holding them back in their quest to end addiction. And the amazing thing is even though you have probably been told otherwise, the solution is just not that complicated. But That s Not What You ve Been Taught This is the part that makes me mad when I surveyed those thousands of people about their struggles with addiction and the suffering they went through during withdrawals, I kept hearing a few common themes: My doctor, pharmacist, friend said their way is the way I should to quit. That s what really makes me mad. Everyone says something different and the doctor might not have your best interests in mind. The people who are supposed to be helping you quit are often the same people keeping you hooked on drugs! Why would they do that? Because the money is in the treatment, not the cure! Think about it, pharmaceutical companies, doctors, rehabs, all make HUGE profits off the backs of addicts. And in today s world, VERY often, doctors are the ones getting people hooked on pills. Keeping you addicted and coming back each and every month. Very often, treatment just pro longs addiction. Rehabs aren t any better, their success rate is a whopping 15%. Now I m not saying that all doctors and rehabs are bad You Need to Know Each and Every Possible Treatment Option You need to discover which way or method is best suited to help YOU quit. No two ways of quitting are the same. That s the purpose of this report, to help you understand your options and learn what it ll take for you to succeed. You already know opiate withdrawals and drug addiction can have devastating effects on people s lives. Drugs can wreak havoc on your confidence, self-image and relationships with others, not to mention they pose huge health risks, including death. Here s a quote I love, perfect for how to beat opiate addiction,

3 To live through an impossible situation, you don t need the reflexes of a Grand Prix driver, the muscles of a Hercules, or the mind of an Einstein. You simply need to know what to do. -Anthony Greenback, The Book of Survival Here We Go 13 Secrets of Opiate Withdrawal and Addiction Success Secret #1: Create and Follow Your Own, Addiction to Recovery Game Plan. The people most successful in life make plans. They create goals and map out exactly how they re going to make things happen. You need to do the same. You literally need to map out in exacting detail how you will 1) withdrawal from opiates 2) recover quickly and 3) succeed long term You need to create a detailed plan leading you from addiction to recovery. Examples of what a Game Plan should consist of: Why you want to quit? How bad do you want it? How long do you think your withdrawal symptoms will last? How will you manage the process? Do you plan to taper your opioid dose to help reduce withdrawal symptoms? What natural and/or doctor prescribed supplements can help ease painful withdrawal symptoms? Will you take time off work to withdrawal? Do you have a good support team that can help you quit? During recovery will you be healing your body and mind with vitamins, minerals and good nutrition? How will you replace time spent thinking about and using opiates or drugs? Secret #2: Before you quit, understand the Opiate Withdrawal Rule of Cause and Effect, What comes up must come down.

4 This generally means, the longer you ve used opiates for and the more you ve used them, the greater the intensity and duration of physical withdrawal symptoms and psychological addiction you may have. Every person s situation is different. Many times the more serious the addiction, the more serious the treatment and professional care needed. Be sure to develop realistic expectations of what exactly it will take for YOU to recover and plan how you will defeat each challenge you could face. Secret #3: There is no right or wrong way to quit drugs. There s only the way that works. This is where a lot of people get confused. Everyone has an opinion on how to quit. The thing is, no one is right. There are an unlimited number of ways and methods that can help you quit. There are tons of tools and tricks that can help you handle withdrawal symptoms and experience lasting recovery. If you haven t quit drugs yet that only means you haven t found the RIGHT way for YOU to quit yet. Learn more about alternative therapies and self improvement. Secret #4: Immediately Cut Off ALL Access to Your Drug Supply. MANY never make it past this step. Because quite often your drug supply comes from someone you trust, it could be your doctor, your best friend, husband or street dealer. It doesn t really matter though. Bottom line is you can no longer associate with that person. Fact of the matter is if you can access opiates in 1 or 2 phone calls you probably wont last long when withdrawal hits hard. It s far too easy for you to relapse, the urge will always be to great. Make sure you can t. Make it impossible for you to find drugs. If your friends use drugs, then you can t be around them anymore, sorry. The more you detach yourself from those people and that way of life, the better your chances of quitting once and for all. Eliminate predetermined negative situations so they cannot happen.

5 Secret #5: Take Time Off Work to Withdrawal from Opiates. Most people feel TERRIBLE when they come off drugs and opiates. Trying to put on a straight face at work can be VERY tough. During the withdrawal stage at the very least, plan to take Thursday and Friday off so you have 4 full days to recover from your worst withdrawal symptoms. Most people fill significantly better going back to work on day 5. Secret #6: Gradually tapering your opiate dose can ease withdrawal symptoms dramatically. The question is, do you have the self-control to taper? What I mean is, if you had 20 pills, could you take enough not hurt but not enough to get high? Most people can t, they don t have this kind of self-control and would use the 20 to get high and end up having to cold turkey their opioid withdrawals. The temptations simply too great. With that said, many people have tapered successfully and therefore experienced virtually no withdrawal symptoms. I know a girl who was using 120 mg of liquid Methadone everyday. She got pregnant and decided to quit. Over a period of 2 months she tapered completely off with close to zero physical discomfort from opiate withdrawal. But be aware, tapering also means the longer you ll be using which make it easy to jump right back on. If you re going to taper, do it right and be aware of the risks. Secret #7: If you need, use a wide variety of Natural and Pharmaceutical supplements to ease painful opiate withdrawal symptoms. We all know how painful opiate withdrawals are. So for many people, taking something to help them deal with pain is very helpful and gets them through this 1 st most important stage. I ve listed some of the best withdrawal symptoms below. Natural supplements I recommend: Kratom for craving control, energy, anxiety.

6 Phenibut for anxiety, sleep and body aches. Valerian root, passion-flower and kava-kava for tension, anxiety and sleep. Doctor prescribed prescriptions can help include: Benzos Valium, Xanax, etc for anxiety, sleep, body aches Clonidine Some people swear by it during withdrawals Suboxone (naxalone) Be careful with suboxone, most people that take it for a long period tell me it s hell to come off. REMEMBER, it s pointless to trade one drug for another drug. Use withdrawal supplements as a tool to get you through step 1. The supplements recommended above are all powerful. Be sure you don t get addicted to something else. Read more at Secret #8: There are a wide variety of supplements that help your body detox, sharpen your mind and help you recover from addiction faster. Products known to help your body and mind get its mojo back are, Omega 3 Fatty Acids for improved brain health Cal/Mag for achy muscles and RLS Milk Thistle to aid in liver detox 5 htp & L-Tyrosine to improve mood and rebuild depleted dopamine levels Supplements and Vitamins can help restore your body s natural balances and keep you functioning at a high level. They can help your body and mind feel better, faster. Secret #9: Have someone around during withdrawal who can help you, understands what you re going through and provides positive encouragement. For many people this may be a wife, friend or girlfriend. At rehabs it may be a nurse, therapist or another patient. There are a lot of things a good friend can help with during opiate withdrawal. It could just be someone who ll go to the store for you, make you some tea or watch a movie with you. It s extremely helpful to have supportive friends and family you can trust

7 during trying times. Secret #10: The Miracle Cure! Hallucinogenic Drug Found in African Jungle SCIENTIFICALLY Proven to Eliminate Your Every Withdrawal Symptom And CURE Your Addiction For Good! Introducing Ibogaine. Ibogaine is a hallucinogenic plant grown in the dense ancient jungles of Africa. Natives have used it in ceremonies for thousands of years to talk with their elders. Those that use it to heal their addiction describe the experience as an intense spiritual journey with great reflection and meaning. Many take a journey through their life and have an awakening or spiritual experience. In a recent study, 76% of those that took it woke up without any withdrawal symptoms and did not do drugs over the 3 day observation period. For a staggering amount this has been the one thing that finally worked, especially for hardcore addicts. Obviously this isn t for everyone, but for addicts that have battled addiction forever this could be the kind of therapy you need. Secret #11: Replace old Bad Habits with New Positive Ones. The time you spend thinking about drugs, trying to find, using, feeling the effects of and coming down from needs to be replaced with NEW positive habits. You ve put a TON of time and energy into drugs, now you have to replace that time with new self-esteem building actions. This could mean a new job, going back to school, working out at the gym, reading and learning empowering new things, spending time with family, etc. Develop new positive life habits that build confidence and self-esteem. Secret #12: The Ultimate Weapon for Addiction is Exercise. Exercise Can Dramatically Improve Your Chance to Succeed Long Term.

8 Exercise has been scientifically proven to ease depression, anxiety, improve self-esteem and build confidence. I can personally speak of the incredible transformational power of exercise. Exercise changed my life for the better. In my first year of college I weighed 153 lbs. and was skinny as a rail. My confidence was shaky, and girls never really noticed me. Fast forward two years and I now weighed 184 lbs. and was solid muscle. During that time I had lifted weights and exercised at least 5x a week. This became a new extremely positive habit for me. My confidence quadrupled and girls always took notice of me now. I went from feeling and acting weak to feeling and acting strong. Exercise (weight training in particular) lets you physically build yourself into a stronger, fitter more motivated person. You literally watch yourself TRANSFORM when you commit to fitness. Start to exercise after you ve made it through a few days of withdrawal. It might be hard to start but stick with it and you ll love it. Develop a long-term exercise program and make it a part of your life you re dead serious about. MANY former drug addicts put their new energy s into athletic endeavors like running, cycling, weight lifting, swimming, golfing, and triathlons. They say it s the perfect outlet for recovery Secret #13: Long-Lasting Recovery is not easy but you CAN do it! Millions Have Beat Drug Addiction, You Can Too! Complete recovery means you re a fully confident and happy person with positive encouraging habits. You know for certain life is better without opiates. When you think about them they no longer create irresistible pull. A few key principles for lasting addiction are: Try and function in life at high level. Elevate and enlighten. Do things the best way they can be done. Always increase your knowledge. Learn useful skills that will serve you well in life.

9 Always seek improvement. Keep trying to quit for as long as it takes, no matter what. Thank you for reading this special report. I hope you find it very helpful.
