This forum is kind of quiet which I am taking as a really good sign that people are getting the job done & going back to their lives.
Most importantly, if our wonderful forum creator is still around, many thanks for what for me has been by far the most useful resource on the web.
I am not drug naive but really didn’t research K properly & chose to believe that as a botanical relative of coffee and used cautiously, I wouldn’t get into trouble.
As it is, there doesn’t seem to be even much anecdotal evidence of the average time for tolerance to kick in. The only claims that I have seen are from vendor related entities that tolerance can be avoided by regularly switching strains.
Even if this was true, it’s not viable in my country as I have limited purchasing options to what they have in stock.
Bottom line is the bubble has burst & im 1 week into what started as an erratic taper but is now more disciplined.
If anyone is interested in my backstory, I posted it on the messages on the main page, before I realised that there was a forum.
I’m hoping to have some company here so we can cheer each other on.
The upside is that K has turned on me so badly that I can’t see myself being tempted in the future.
Use seems reasonably common so maybe only a minority of us get into trouble but I hope that they find this site

I am hoping this forum is still active. I have been taking kratom since 2016 originally to get off a Norco habit and found it absolutely worked, however now I am addicted to Kratom. I was up to about 70 g a day and buying it online per kilo for less than $200 a month. I went to detox for alcohol in April and ended up kicking kratom in the process. I was thrilled to be done with it but then I slipped. I found a bottle of Tramadol and took those then when those withdrawals hit I turned to kratom. It has only been 20 days back on kratom but I am already up to 30 g a day and I don’t like where this is going. I didn’t think I was physically dependent again but this morning after not taking any from 3pm yesterday to 7am this morning I woke up with restless legs. I am very upset that I picked it up again and thought with only 20 days back on it I could quit no problem. Guess again! I used to take it 5-6x a day and am only dosing 3x now. Up til this weekend I made it a point not to take any after noon thinking this would help me not get addicted but yesterday I took a dose at 3pm before a party. I am going back to my noon rule but I need to consistently taper starting tomorrow. Since I am much more aware of my usage versus before I went to detox I feel a bit more in control but I know it is a slippery slope. I wish there was something I could do for quick relief but it looks like I need to taper in order to minimize the symptoms and not disrupt work. I am going to try the taper schedule that I downloaded and see if this helps. Thank you for creating this site, I hope to find others on this same journey to help motivate me! Kicking booze and kratom at the same time is no picnic.
