    If the effects were really mild, then sure. But I imagine if you’re asking about it then you may be in for worse than a mild case. Were the painkillers legally prescribed? The doctor has other drugs to limit the withdrawal. If you have to quit on your own, the best way is always to slowly taper down your dose when possible. Weed may help, but it’s not a substitute.
