I've got a good system going with detox. There's enough good stuff- chocolates, flowers, good food, to make it easier. There are also things I won't write about. But it's all better than trying to go cold all at once. Lots of Led Zep, or whatever band is Godlike to you, or once was; use headphones. Air musicianship is encouraged; use caution in limbs that aren't 100%.
Don't make more of the symptoms than they are, but if things get hairy, reach out immediately.
Also, ya really have to have friends and it's good if at this time they show up. Which my friends have. I get by with a little help from my friends.
With some luck, in a few weeks I'll have a new strategy and even more to keep writing about in the book of no end.
