>People's Action Party (PAP) new candidate Ivan Lim has decided not to stand in the general election. The party has accepted his decision to withdraw.
>In a statement sent to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the party’s secretary-general, Mr Lim said:
>“I am writing to withdraw as a PAP candidate in the coming election. In recent days, there have been various allegations made about my conduct and behavior. Following my clarification this morning, further allegations have emerged against me. These new allegations are baseless.
>“I appreciate the support the Party has given to me throughout this period. I have consulted and discussed the matter with the Party leadership. I recognize that the controversy over my candidacy has eclipsed the core issues of what this election should be about - Singapore's future and the difficult steps we
I’ve been taking Kratom for 7 months at 4 grams per dose 4 times a day. Sometimes more but never less. I never had a tolerance break.
It’s been 48 hours since I last dosed. Ive been feeling the same shitty feeling since 6 hours after my last dose. Nothing has gotten worse or less bad. I feel horrible because I’m doing absolutely nothing. In bed on my phone having no real distractions like hobbies or gym or school. I am experiencing cold sweats, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, and bad sleeping patterns. But I’d say all except cold sweats are psychological. I’m anticipating all these symptoms to happen because I read about them so the slightest discomfort I experience I attribute it to that. When it’s literally just my natural body feelings without Kratom. I’m lying to myself and causing more pain to myself than I’m actually in which results in more pain. Our brains are strong. I was able to sleep 9 hours yesterday but at different times of the day when normally even under Kratom I’d... keep reading on reddit ➡
My personal idea was 7 days in a row probably wouldnt cause any withdrawals.
Then my demon says take 2 weeks but I wont of course.
So what you think? If I take 1 week in a row , daily maximum of 1.5-2mg would it be fine?
I also take Effexor, but I got this Xanax secretly and checked interactions its fine, used Xanax last year without prescription too for fun . So I have experience but I dont know the length of usage that causes you hard time withdrawing it?
If you could kindly tell me your opinion like take 3 days, then off, or take 1 week, then 2 weeks off kinda suggestions. I would truly appreciate it a lot.
I dont wanna ruin my body with this celebration and turn it to a medicating :) Just wanna have some fun for a bit.
Thanks a lot, God bless all of you.
Have a lovely evening 💥😇🙏🏻

Most BJJ gyms have reopened in my area but I did not feel comfortable going yet ( I have been having vivid dreams of GI rolling for numerous nights now.). In the space of 2 days, COVID cases have multiplied by 6 in the county where I live , the state is going to reclose and I see people yelling "Freedom" while fighting Wal-Mart employees for their right to not wear a mask.
Is no one wanting life to go back to normal?
Do you have a coping mechanism for not being able train?
I think a lot of people, especially long time daily users, are forgetting what they felt like before Kratom. I am guilty of this as well. Now Kratom does cause physical dependence, like most substances, I think most people have come to terms with that now. The problem is I feel like a lot of people are confusing physical dependence caused by your brain's neurochemicals being unbalanced and psychological/psychosomatic symptoms.
I am seeing posts about people saying things like "doing better after 6 months but still having a runny nose and anxiety". People who have never touched drugs have runny noses, they have hot flashes and anxiety attacks, they have depression, they have muscle soreness. These are things kratom can remove while you are on it but that doesn't mean it caused it. Kratom can make you feel better without doing things you would normally have to do to feel better like exercising, socializing, eating right, having strong coping mechanisms for issues and mental illnesses,... keep reading on reddit ➡
The Federal Reserve announced today that it would provide relief from the six-per-month limit on transfers or withdrawals from savings accounts under Regulation D, effective immediately. This action—advocated by the American Bankers Association—is intended to grant more flexibility to consumers to access their savings deposits at a time when many are facing financial hardships due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Fed noted that its recent action reducing all reserve requirement ratios to zero has eliminated the need to distinguish between reservable “transaction accounts” and non-reservable “savings deposits.” The Fed also made corresponding updates to the Call Report to reflect these changes.

Been drinking since 14, I am 21 now. Ive had bad hangovers and withdrawals after constantly drinking for the past 2 years. Been hospitalized before due to defecating blood from alcoholism.
Yesterday, I had a seizure for about 3 minutes where my full body tensed up. I looked like I had sever cerebral palsly if you glanced at me. I nearly fully lost my speech for some time. Thankfully I had a wonderful human there to assist me.
I think its time to get help. I use to say I can do it alone, but clearly not.
Ill be talking to my doctor tomorrow and explain what I've been hiding.

I haven’t been using this card at all in the past couple of months, so I don’t think I’ve initiated anything. But please let me know what you think.
Edit for clarity: my Discover card and PayPal accounts have been linked for quite some time now, so this isn’t the initial verification of the card. From comments here and a rep at Discover, I’ve learned that companies will sometimes do preauthorizations later on to just make sure the card is still active. It’s still unclear why they processed it three times, but it’s apparently no cause for concern!
Hey all, I’m hoping someone in this subreddit has gone through what I’m going through right now and can help give me some guidance on what to expect for the next few weeks. I’m 21 F, around 135 lbs and for the past 2-3 weeks I’ve been doing between 2mg-4mg Xanax daily. Well, 3 days ago I ran out and decided that I was done. The first night after I quit I felt no adverse side effects, but last night I started to feel them. Cold sweats, body tremors & aches, and anxiety. This morning I woke up feeling extremely nauseous and had to leave work early. Had no appetite all day until around noon when I was barely able to eat a small burger. Now I’m sitting in bed and I feel like the room is spinning, my brain is very foggy and it’s hard to focus. I guess I’m just looking for some insight from others who have gone through this process. If anyone has any tips to help the symptoms I would love to hear them. Most of my symptoms so far have been physical, the only mental symptoms have been brai... keep reading on reddit ➡
"Her account of the addiction which ensued is salutary and frightening. “He gave me two little blue pills. One at morning and one at night. Within a couple of months that turned into four little blue pills. Then it became 15 blue pills. He kept increasing my dose. I was in there every two weeks for an hour and he watched me grow heavier and the light went out in my eyes. If I started to run out, I would start to shake so hard people would stare at me. I thought I had Parkinson’s disease. I was sick and high and miserable and overweight. I knew I was going to die.”
Finally, one day in the early ’90s, she realised she could not go on. “I called up my manager and said come and get me and take me to a hospital because I’m not going to be alive in two weeks.”

I know everyone’s experience is different, but I’ve always struggled with this for the last year and a half of taking Kratom and wonder if others go through it. On average I take 6-7g 4-5 times a day, so 25-35 grams a day. I feel fine if I miss a dose. But without fail, I wake up and my body feels sooo uncomfortable. Like opiate w/ds and I’m very anxious. As soon as I have my first dose I’m good to go. I’ve started experimenting with waking up at around 2am and taking a smaller dose, and I do feel a bit better in the AM, but I don’t want to be dependent on taking it at night like that. Anyone else feel this? Is part of the issue that I only take Maeng Da?
At least I hope I’m going through just a period... Recently I’ve just withdrawn to within myself, barely wanting to be social. I wasn’t even very social a week or so ago before this sort of phase started. I would mostly talk to my bf and a few distant friends every other day or two. But I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t even want to talk to my therapist. It’s not even a desire to be alone, maybe it’s just the pandemic that’s making me feel this way.
Any advice or stories would be much appreciated! Thank you so much and I hope you all are staying well!
On 6pm on June 12th I had my last drink, I was trying to taper. I had already called in sick for three days in a row for the second month in a row. My job and my life were at stake. I started drinking at 8am barely making it to the store for a four pack of wine as my taper. Well as usual that ended up being another 4 and a not very successful taper. I stopped drinking at 6pm but the night continued with sweats, anxiety out the roof, horrible thoughts of my possible death alone in my apartment, unclear vision, tingling arms and legs, puffy eyes, the dark circles from many nights of no sleep made it look like I had two black eyes. It was about to storm outside but I decided to go to the ER.
I looked up the closest ER less than a mile away and pulled up at 3am. The people were the nicest I have encountered and got me into a bed in less than 30 minutes. I was given an IV bag of fluids, Ativan, some nasty tasty potassium liquid and other vitamins. I had and EKG and blood work done. I was t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve taken 25 mg adderall xr daily for around 10 months. During this time I have taken excellent care of my body; I get enough calories and drink plenty of water, I don’t eat many foods high in fat or sugar. I’ve even gained ~5 lbs in muscle from lifting weights.
I’m planning on quitting tomorrow. Given my relatively low dose and good health I’m expecting that withdrawals won’t be too bad, but I’d like to see if anyone on here who has been through withdrawals could give me an estimate on how long it will last given my circumstances. Also, what supplements are best to use during withdrawals? Thanks
Hi everyone, maybe somebody can help me...
I’ve been taking Kratom daily for the last 3 months (about 15-20g per day I would say) and I stopped 3 days ago because I was barely feeling any effects anymore. I took 4g again earlier, felt good for about an hour and that’s it.
But right now I feel like I’m going crazy, I’m bored the whole time, restless, kinda depressed, lazy, I feel like doing nothing but at the same time I can’t sit still.
Is this the Kratom withdrawal? Stopping taking Kratom is the only thing that I changed in my life recently so I feel like it’s that.
Even just a couple drinks, morning after I feel like i’m dying. 💀
So I posted something yesterday after seeing many many posts of people wanting to know how to come off opiates. The forum is either people using it as support for getting clean or staying clean.

Hopefully you can all chip in with tips and I can edit this so it’s a bit more comprehensive ...
Context: I’m in my 30s. I live in the UK. I’m a dad. I have a good job. No finance problems now but did at some points due to my habit. However the biggest thing is I’ve never seen a doctor about this and NO ONE knows I’ve been using codeine on and off for 12+ years now. I had a break for a year when I moved country and had mini breaks (cold turkeys) throughout but always gone back on to it. It’s mainly when I’ve gotten sick, migraines, flu or even terrible hangovers, codeine always makes it go away. After having a break I get th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Been vaping about 15ml of 0.3% nicotine juice a day for the past 4 years or so since i quit smoking cigarettes. Recently i was gifted a bottle of ejuice that i thought was 3mg. I vaped that juice 4 consecutive days and just now realized it was 0mg when i picked up the bottle and seen it said 0mg.
I didn’t feel any differently in these past 4 days. Is nicotine withdrawal just psychological? I always thought it was physical because i couldn’t go anywhere without my vape. This has me re thinking everything.
Although it's both incredibly unfair and borderline ridiculous they have not listed classes that will be online as of now, I want to remind you all that if you plan to withdrawal your housing application please do so by tomorrow.
I just want to discuss KE all the time! It's getting better every day, but there are moments (like right now) where, I am like - give me all the theories and deep dives and engage with me on what that smile meant, and why did Konstantin scoff, and does Carolyn always turn her lip up, and can we find more exposition for Eve, and did Villanelle really just say "I know" and we never got back to it, and did you see that beautiful call back to S1, did they really just say "Through the Looking glass" thats inverted logic- what does it mean, and.....?

I plan on detoxing from heroin this week so i purchased some kratom to try and ease the withdrawals a little bit. I have no experience with kratom so i was hoping i could get some help on this sub. I purchased some "Green Vein Maeng Da" kratom capsules from a gas station near me. The package has 120 capsules and each capsule is 600mg. It cost me about $40.
I read everywhere that kratom is a lifesaver when it comes to opiate withdrawals. What should my game plan be? I have a pretty fat heroin addiction consisting of about 2g-3g a day for the past 4-5 months. I'm sick of this lifestyle I have been living and want to kick it completely. I plan on not picking up tomorrow and just using this kratom.
What should my dosage be like? Will these kratom capsules be enough to atleast ease some of my withdrawals? I really am clueless on this stuff so any pointers on how I should dose for the next few days until my withdrawals at least start to ease up would be greatly appreciated.

for me, i was living in boston at the time, working in a liquor store riddled with CAs. i was just starting to develop a dependency on alcohol, but obviously didn’t know the gravity of the situation i was getting myself into. anyways, i was working a closing shift with a coworker and was just starting to feel really on edge. ya know that slight nausea and perspiration, starting to snap at people and shit. my coworker looked me up and down, and being the better alcoholic than i was at the time, told me it was time to go take a beer break in the walk in cooler. i remember so distinctly heading in there to down a yuenling, probably faster than i’ve ever drank a beer in my life. holy shit, how quickly i felt better. i was honestly awestruck by the fact that something so simple could make me feel content. right about after that was when i started drinking in the morning, throughout the day, etc.

Hello all, I do hope this is an apt topic. I've been living in Tokyo for just over 5 years, Moving here was my dream, leaned the language enough to get by, married a fantastic Japanese boy whom which I love dearly and we have just had our first son who is turning 6 months tomorrow. My first half year here, was remarkable, I was still in that Japan sparkle glow. It faded as I began looking around me and noticing certain little things, people's reactions to me that the glow had overpowered. The stares and the comments were starting to chip away at me and I've come to the point where I've just become terrified to go outside and have to deal with people's reactions. I've had social anxiety in Canada as now but things have kind of stacked on top of each other and I've gone outside by myself twice since last September when I stopped working.

My gf is currently going cold Turkey from H. Shes at around 48 hours. Mostly china white but some tar use depending on money... I have xanax which shes been using during this. And I managed to find hydrocodone. But much less of that the xanax. Currently she is in bed moaning and cant sleep. And she obviously really wants to get some H. Is there anything else I can do to help her through the Immediate withdrawal? Like what kinda food should she be eating or anything she should be drinking that would help? Any vitamins that would be good? Also how long will the intense physical symptoms last? (I know there will be PAWS for a long time)
I know many will say she shouldn't start one habit to end another with the bars and hydros. I understand and agree. But at this time, I think it would be nearly impossible for her to have made it this long without those.

How is every one else doing this ... HELP PLEASE
is exactly what I'm telling myself at day #25. And I think this also applies to you, who are reading this! I've been having like craaazy craaazy urges for the past 4 days, and they increase tenfold in intensity each night. Last night especially was unlike anything I've had, and I was literally on the verge of relapse. I also had an accidental perk/(not really) during my urges, but I miraculously got through it.
Anyways all I need to say is stay strong! If you made it this far, then remember, these are only temporary withdrawal effects. Yes they'll be extremely hard, but you just gotta sit through the pain and stay strong!
It is something I have had since I was 3, and have been dealing with it my whole life. So this is currently withdrawal induced, but it will still always effect me for the rest of my life as long as I stay sober. I have always had bad RLS and it spreads to my chest and arms, it drives me insane. Anyone who has dealt with this will understand. And after continuous bouts I am about to lose my mind. If anyone knows of something that I could take for this that is not illegal please tell! I'm getting a little too far into the depression from it from lack sleep and just the irritation. Help me. I have tried everything naturally and otc for sleep so that does not work. Drinking more water, iron deficiency, vitamins, a bath, Epsom salts, any theory you can find online I have tried so from one sufferer to another if you have something that really works for severe cases, then please tell me. So far opiates and ambien are the only things and as I am trying to remain sober opiates are not an opti... keep reading on reddit ➡
About 2 years ago I started using benzos, it was usually 1mg of xanax every few days. But Later I got a 50 pack of 1mg Lorazepam from the doctor for myself and used this up over about 2 weeks while still occasionally taking xanax as well as a barbiturate. After that I had my first withdrawal, it really wasn't bad tho. I just felt a bit tense for 2 to 3 days after stopping it. I used a lot of drugs, but GABA drugs were probably my biggest problem.
A few months later, about a year ago I got a Clonazepam prescription from my doctor because I felt really depressed. I told myself to only use it 4 weeks MAX. So I took about 3 to 4mg on average a day and used up about three bottles with 100 0.5mg pills each after 25 days. The Clonazepam had a weird effect on me, often making me really manic and restless, I felt like I wanted to move mountains. It got to the point where I drank some beers in the evening to stop this restlessness (I know not very smart) which I did about the last 10 days I use... keep reading on reddit ➡

im curious to ask if others who have been using opiates for extended periods of time, went into withdrawal and were experiencing very strange sadness for the past, nostalgia if you will for older better times, mostly feeling like a kid type of shit. or is this just me? each time i withdrawal i feel this nostalgia and its so strong, it pierces through me, im cold sweating shivering but same time feel like crying almost visualizing my life as a kid and i hear the classic music i used to love and i feel such sadness. is this typical for opiate withdrawal or is it just very special case?? i have always wondered but it doesnt seem anyone else have reported this. what is the theory of experiencing this? i assume it must be some dysfunction in hormones, because opiates can really alter their distribution while under the influence. but thats just my theory
Hi together! I‘m not sure if anyone is familiar with SSRI withdrawal and the windows and waves pattern when coming of psychiatric drugs. This can take really long ,and when I feel quite normal, 1h later I could sit in horrific depression, anxiety or never ending thoughts. I‘m off now since four months, and thinking about participating a retreat in August. Do you think that‘s a wise idea? I also worked with mushrooms in WD, I‘m not sure if it helped sth, but did not worsen it. Or do you think I should give my nervous system another year of recovery. In withdrawal it is sometimes hard to differentiate if this are old stuck trauma bubbling to the surface or it is a symptom caused by rebalancing the nervous system from the drugs. I would love to cry out my sadness, shout out my anger. This is what psychedelics helped me a lot, leading me straight to catharsis. Actually I stay away from too much spuritual texting, as it fills up my problem solving mind. Which is actually full anyway.
