  Detoxing on your own can be pretty hard. Here are some pointers that might make it easier for you:

•Eat crackers and dry toast if you're feeling sick to your stomach.

•Change your clothes often if you are sweating lots.

•Try and detox in a place that is quiet and dark and where you feel safe.

•Take hot baths when your bones are aching.

•If you have dry heaves, take Gravol if you have it. Suppositories are the best because you can't throw them up.

•Have somebody check in on you regularly

•Drink lots of water or other fluids (try not to drink alcohol).

•If you have a doctor that understands what you might be going through ask them for a prescription to help you through withdrawal.
