Can Kratom Help Alcoholics?
Kratom has been very useful in treating addiction.
The consequences of Alcoholism are felt by many people. Nobody starts drinking to become an alcoholic. For many of us, it starts as a casual release of emotions that are burdonsome. It offers a quick escape into a world of less pain and even enjoyment. It can be a relaxing time to unwind and lessen our inhibitions.
Some people can utilize alcohol as a controlled medicinal therapy, but others find themselves bound to it with little hope of escape. The same can be said for addictive drugs.
Most people can see the signs of addiction, yet refuse to admit them. It's not fun to quit any addictive drug that gives us so much satisfaction. When we arrive to the point of diminishing returns that threaten our livelihood and relationships because of addiction, we need to find help before things fall apart.
It's not my intention to be preachy in any way. In fact, I'm a voice of experience with painful experiences that forced me to deal with my condition of alcohol and prescription drug addiction. I have dealt with chronic pain all my adult life. I suffered a heart attack at age forty-four. It was then that I realized I was destroying myself and my wife and three children were paying the price. I needed alternatives to drinking and painkillers.
Kratom gave me help with addiction
Kratom is a leaf from a tree grown in Asia. It has potent alkaloids that satisfy the opiate receptors in the brain. This is where the cravings mostly come from. The leaves are dried and ground into a powder which can be mixed into a drink. Most people start to feel the euphoric affects within minutes and the cravings for alcohol and drugs are greatly diminished to the point where they have more control over their addictions.
Kratom is more like prescription painkillers, but for the time being it is legal in most states. Kratom is NOT a drug like Naltrexone that kill all cravings by making the person sick and severly depressed. I don't even like to use the "N" word. It's not a good experience and it doesn't solve anything.
Kratom will also help reduce the symptoms of hangover to where they are almost gone for several hours. It acts as a stimulant and anti-nausea remedy for most people. It is commonly used as an herbal remedy for helping with depression, anxiety, lethargy, chronic pain and even premature ejaculation in some men.
Kratom is a controversial substance because of its alkaloid content and the DEA and FDA are pushing to ban it completely. It has no known cases of overdose. It can be midly addictive, but is used as a natural stepdown drug for severe addicts and alcoholics in some cases.
For now, Kratom is fairly inexpensive compared to options of obtaining illegal prescription meds. It won't show up on drug tests and it is easy to order or buy locally. This could change if we lose our rights of choice, imposed by self-serving politicians and religious groups who feel their way is the only correct way, yet they know nothing about the medicinal effects of Kratom which they are trying to ban.
If you need help controlling addictive cravings, I would encourage you to give Kratom a try.
