18 months out…this is supposed to be the magical month

In a lot of the withdrawal groups 18 months is held up as the average time those of us with heavy withdrawal syndromes can expect recovery. It has always seemed rather an arbitrary and meaningless marker to me. Many people recover fully well before that time, others don't experience any illness at all. I'm not sure how that number came to be, but I really don't think it means anything at all.
