Cooling Off

The following are just ideas that some members have found to be especially helpful for dealing with the problems encountered in withdrawal.

______________________________________________________________________

"Sometimes, cooling off my face when it's flushing with heat and/or anxiety has helped me to relax. You can try these things:

bulletApply a cold washcloth to your forehead, cheeks, and neck.
bulletPut cold packs or bags of frozen vegetables on your neck. This also helps with neck tension and muscle aches.
bulletPoint a fan at your face and crank it full blast for a minute or two, then keep it focused on you at a lower setting until the sweats pass.
bulletIn a pinch, find a sink and splash cold water on your face multiple times to bring your temperature down and to center yourself."
