English term or phrase:hit the wall
I had also heard at NA and elsewhere that no one gets off Methadone without using heroin again—that is, you use heroin to cushion yourself from the methadone withdrawals. I was no exception. I did well for the first couple of months.
The chemist asked me from time to time whether I had “hit that wall” yet.
I kept saying no, I was doing fine. Until my very last week of the detox.
I want to be sure about the meaning of this idiomatic expression.
