Whats up everyone, I just wanted to do the introduction thing. Currently on 6 millis of suboxone, starting 4 tomorrow morning. I have been tested at my very limits over the past 18-24 months, from 120 to about 44mg I was able to drop 4-5 and occasionally even 6mg at a time about every two weeks to a month depending on how I was feeling. Once I got down to 14mg of methadone I felt like dropping 2-3mg did not justify the amount of pain I was enduring, compared to the past year or so of decreasing. I made the decision to switch over to suboxone (8mg) and have been able to keep up the pace, dropping two mg every two or three weeks.

I am only able to keep this pace from moving back into my parents house. I do not know that I would be this far along had I tried to do it on my own. Feeling like shit every single morning, even if its only for a half hour while your dose is kicking in, is not the kind of life I want to maintain. I think about the days when I had a naturally occurring appetite, not that packing a bowl doesn't float my boat, it's the only thing that keeps me on a regular eating and sleeping schedule. Without that small slice of peace before and/or after I eat I think I would wither away from not holding down any food and water.

Good luck to all of you.
