Methadone withdrawl, what to expect? TRUTHFULLY

Hi, all. My name is Travis. I started to got to a methadone clinic to resolve my opiate addiction about a year and a half ago. I can no longer afford to go and knew this in advance so my doc/councelor Put me on a medically supervised withdrawl. I was at 120mL when I started coming down. I go to the clinic once a week as I get 6 take homes (could be 13 but I cant afford it all at once). I want to know the truth because this clinic they seem more like salwmen than worried about your health. They way I tapered was 120 one week, 110 the next week, 100 the next till I got to 50. I then started going down only 5 mL at a time so 45, 40, 35,30 etc. I am at 15 mL starting tomorrow and can feel the wds starting to kick in now a little bit more each day. My plan is to go 15 tomorrow, 10, 5,2 then done. I have no choice. The money is gone. Suboxone is not an option as I am on xanax and cant come off of it. So this is IT!!! I am doing this like it or not. I wish I would have never went on the Done but how long do I have in hell to look forward to? I take potassium, A-Z vitamins, Immodium is on stand by, Aleve. I am just scared because it is going to happen because I WON'T give in and relapse or go back to the methadone. Thanks guys.
