    Hi Kim,
    thanks for asking..I am doing very well...I am still in the middle of the ring punching from the shoulder..dancing around the Tramadol..he is in pain and hurting as I jab..sneer and reduce his powers by keeping on with the taper..he does however stick his thumb in my eye and head butt me once in a while when I am not looking....sneaky tricks..no doubt....just sponge my face down..I will be alright then..
    I dont smoke any more Kim..I just smoulder silently..mount etna ?? who me ?
    We have here legal coffee shops where you can order every type of hash....or pot you want..they even have slices of space cake to eat with your coffee...all can be seen on the canabis menu card...they will even deliver to your door..I dont really like hash myself..makes me go whiter than white and very very silent...but Amsterdam is really laid back..no hassles..no fighting..no rubbish..
    of course I am hanging in there...fighting the fight...
    all the best
    Jim

    Hi people,
    not a lot to report...staying at an even keel..this not so -Quick-Quick...but Slow-Slow pace..it's like being in slow-motion...I am moving but if you blink I will still seam to be in the same place..flotsum in the canal..going this way that way..every which way...drifting...but I am moving along..silently...slowly but always moving....towards the future...like a bridge over trammie water..it won't get me down...when your down and out...fealing cold...still is good...far away from the madding crowd...you don't always have to march with the drum band..just walk along side..whistling...you'll get there..
    all the best
    Jim

    Kind of like pulling out...youre there but youre not there but youre right frigging there....thats the difference between fentynal and tramadol. A quick little fix thats all bust and no balls....and it sucks.....because you never quite get there...but youre right there

    Hi Cold Turkey,
    I think I know what your saying..plenty of shouting and banging of drums but no real sound.. like an orchestra tunning up..gnashing of teeth...having said that I have never got high on Tramadol..had many lows mind..this appearing as swetting..pass me the brown towel...a little on edge...feet dancing in the dark...I am maintaining my very-slow taper..as of today no sharks in the water..at best tiny crabs nibbling and pinching at my legs..maybe my pain level is to high for the Tramadol to actually take me to its leader ? I am a member of his gang but not fully paid up...still a nine year habbit cannot and should not be swept off the table like it doesn't exists..its there a waiting and praying that I slip up..one wrong move and it will pounce...I can hear it in the dark..I can smell it...I am still batting....swinging from the hip..it's not throwing any real swerve balls as such..it's just aiming at my head and helmet...keep you posted..
    all the best
    Jim

    Hi Jim ~ Since you asked, babe, I think the taper plan is too slow. At the rate of 25mg from 400mg it will take you until 2010 to get off (just kidding).

    Tapers are more directed toward the percentage of reduction rather than milligram based. The usual schedule utilized is between 20 - 25% for each reduction.

    BTW....my DIL (who is Dutch), taught me one word of Dutch last April when I visited. Its one of my favorite words that I use a lot when in really ludicrous situations. Belachelijk!:D

    Arlene is the expert but my view on the long taper is good and bad. The bad it takes so long that there's many opportunities to cheat. I personally think a good long taper would be good to help your body to adjust. My guess is that the vast majority of long tapers don't work....well because we're Damn Addicts!!! &lt;wink&gt;

    Good Luck,
