Life is much better without an opiate addiction. I can attest to the fact that the high of opiates is small potatoes next to the high of realizing you don't need them. Ever. For any reason (including surgery). I underwent dermabrasion without opiates. Talk about painful. Still, I survived. It can be done. If people can have natural childbirth, people can have surgery without opiates.

Note: having surgery without opiates also means having surgery without anesthesia, as anesthesia without opiates means that you could wake up and have a heart attack or something like that (I can't remember exactly what). And yes, this is possible too ....

I wanted to add that I quit cigarettes before quitting opiates. This was the best move I ever made. It gave me the confidence I needed to kick opiates to the curb, once and for all. Highly recommend this move prior to attempting to quit opiates!
