    I have severe chronic pain. I was on opiates for nearly 3 years for pain management - 200mg morphine sulfate 4x a day plus fentanyl patches. As the opiates lose effectiveness for pain control over time all that was left is the slow thinking and difficulty focus and still same or nearly same level of pain so I stopped taking them. I did not do as I should have with Dr care - I just stopped - finished and did not refill. They offered 7-10 days of inpatient if I wanted to stop and just quit before I arranged that . It sucked for 3 days bad - was uncomfortable for a week.... on th eother hand I am very very used to pain and uncomfortable so it was not that big of a change.

    So far as "normal" - I do not know what that is anymore. I have severe chronic pain but since the opiates had stopped being effective at controlling pain i was getting nothing from them that helped me so I stopped. Still severe pain but able to think more clearly. I prefer able to think clearly to the 60 minutes of droning that I got from the pills and clock watching until i dared take more. I do not know but i am unsure 3 years or 20 years matters- both are long term habitual - except you likely are getting 0 benefit from them anymore either...
