Thanks so much for this site. It’s a great resource and seems very supportive.
I’ve been a daily kratom user for almost a year. Started at a few grams a day until now where I’m at about 25. I take capsules so it’s pretty easy to measure. 🙂
The biggest motivator to quit for me is financial. I found myself unexpectedly having to buy a new car this week and take a closer look at my budget. I had no idea I was spending about $800 a month on kratom. $800!!! That’s insane. I could pay for 2 cars a month with that. What a waste. When I think of how much money I could have in savings right now instead spending it on kratom it makes me absolutely furious with myself. I hate that I got hooked, but I’m human. We all are. I’m trying to be kind to myself about it and just nurture my inner cheapskate. 😉 I’ve typically gotten withdrawals only in the mornings. It’s soooo hard to get going right out of bed without the kratom. I’m a single mom of 2, so it’s on me to get everyone going. As soon as that first dose kicks in, I’m great. But I’m a cold-sweaty zombie before that.
Anyway, thanks for the taper guide and for letting me join the group. It will be good to have some accountability. Literally no one knows about my “little habit” so I don’t have anyone to talk to about it. Very easy to keep the habit going. BUT, I started taper this morning before I saw the chart with a major step down to 15 g for the day (5, 5 & 5). So far so good! We’ll see how that goes. If it’s rough tonight I may step it back up and start higher according to the tapering chart.
Best to all and thanks for reading!

Two car payments. Now that’s some serious cash. Probably more than you spend on food!
Sounds like you’re off to a great start. Go slow enough that you can manage it smoothly and find a way to keep your reason for quitting front and center.
Let us know how it goes for you.
You got this!
