Season 4 can't be possible
22 December 2009 | by smallrage1See all my reviews

Season 4 can't be possible for 1 reason and 1 reason only and that would be to kick a heroin habit cold turkey, I know this first hand. Being disabled and living with chronic daily I used to be on 80mg a day of Methadone which is a synthetic form of heroin when I tried quitting cold turkey because the medicine was no longer relieving me of pain. My doctor thought it would be best to to go to the detox clinic his way they could monitor me and help me cope with the withdrawals symptoms I would of experiencing plus they could monitor my new pain medicine at the same time which is now Morphine, but I declined. I thought it would be a piece of cake and doing it myself boy was I wrong.

I spent the first 4 days shaking like there was no tomorrow, sweating bullets all the while I couldn't get warm enough I really thought I was dying. So for Jack Bauer to pretend that you can still function properly after quitting a 6 month habit in 24 hours is an complete nonsense and is insult to all the addicts who wish to quit but fear what will happen to them while they get clean. They have every right to fear because its the hardest thing I have ever done in my 47 year of living and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Yet Heroin is so much stronger than methadone which methadone is used to detox a heroin addict.

For that and that only I give this whole season 4 a 1 star had Kiefer Sutherland talked about Heroin addiction as not an easy drug to quit either before or after the season ended I would have given this a 10. To give people struggling with addictions false hope is seriously wrong and reflects badly on him and the up coming seasons. Shame on him
