In brief: Depends

The amount will impact the intensity of withdrawals, at 63 hours some symptoms may be peaking, but will still linger, after 5-7 days much of the severe physical symptoms will improve, but sleep problems, restlessness, fatigue, irritabilty and strong cravings can linger, even 2-3 weeks out relapse risk will still be high, seek support, non narcotic meds can help, so can 12 step meetings, counselin.

In brief: 5 days

In one sense, you should feel better, immediately, knowing that you are doing the right thing getting away from a narcotic habit.
Get some exercise and replace those missing narcotics by manufacturing your own endorphins. It is hard work, if it were easy, there were be nobody addicted to narcotics in the first place.
