I Need Help With Withdrawals?

Question by Rita: I need help with withdrawals?
Just so you know, im not looking for “validation for my addiction”.
Im 19, female.
Ive been illegally addicted to xanax for about a year now.
I take about 3 bars a day.
And ive finally reached a point where i cant get them anymore.

I feel like complete shit and my moods are ALL OVER THE PLACE.
Is there ANYTHING to help these symptoms?

You need to replace your addiction with another addiction like a sport or a musical instrument or college. Well college is much of an addiction, but it will make you a better person.
