You can't really: Going through withdrawl is inevitable if you are exposed to certain chemicals. The most famous are tobacco, opiates valium-family and alcohol.Minimumizing the symptoms are possible, usually with medical help. Tapering down first so that the withdrawls are less helps. Hot baths, showers, massage for muscle pain. Otc diarrhea meds can decrease abdominal cramping and diarrhea.Quercetin can help.
