Vacation with in-laws

Postby suboxalypsenow » Sun Dec 24, 2017 2:31 pm

Hey friends

I am on a slow wean, currently at 1.3 mg and planning to hit 0 within a few months. I have planned toward the tail end of this period a vacation to France for a week with my fiance, her parents, and her sister. If all goes to schedule, I'll be right around 0.3 mg during this time.

I wasn't thinking clearly when I agreed to go on the trip, and as it's approaching I'm getting worried. Do you think I'll be suffering too much to enjoy the vacation? Or maybe it's a good idea to get me out of my routine?

Thanks

What's up subnow

I wouldn't worry about the inevitable but you can bring some lope to get used to the French food wee.

I would get some benzo's as a backup incase you need a break but try to do without. You will be alright. I'm still dumbfounded how much the body and mind can take without imploding. It's the smile that takes the skills but you sound skillful. Peace

I think that you'll know a month before you go if you should hold until you get back. Are you in a time crunch...do you have the taper time planned for a reason?

If you are at .75 during that time...you'd probably be fine...even .5 but below that you'll probably be very fatigued more than anything.

When exactly is the trip?

Hmm makes sense. No, I don't have any strict timeframe. Wouldn't be a big problem if I paused it for a bit. The trip is in April. Yes, I'm on a looong taper :0 ugh!

I think with your knowledge and awareness you can get thru it....nothing wrong with a slow taper but after that be very choosy about scheduling events.
