Hi everybody, and Doc. Junig. My name is JayJay and i'm 26 years old. I've been abusing opiates since age 15. It has been a long road. I first used vicodin a couple times and it never did anything for me, then one day some "friends" of mine gave me a O.C.80. well it was love at first sniff. I've used anything I could get my hands on since, always looking for O.C.'s but when I couldn't find them I would take ANY opiate I could find. On July 10th, 2008 I finally got caught. Let's just say it was bad enough to hire a lawyer for the sum of around $8,000.00 to stay out of jail, and I'm still on probation. I got sober the day after, and on to suboxone the day after that. So as of June 9th,2009 it's been 11.5 months on 3x Suboxone/day, with only a few "oops" since. One "oops" was because of a kidney stone in may, I got off subs and on to perc. 10's, a week later I couldn't stand being on the perc's that I got back on the Suboxone and kept going through despite the huge amount of pain. Last "oops" was just my screw up, but with "something else", and if were talking opiates i've been clean for all 11.5 months, not counting the kidney stone. I watched all of Doc Junig's videos and wanted more of the open minded talk Suboxonetalkzone and Suboxforum have to offer. So here I am, if your new to subs or want some advice for an almost year vet, ask away, and if you have anything to teach, please, I will listen. One thing I am concerned of in My life is today I switched back to 10mg of Ambien, from a trial period of 5mg, and it seemed as if my doctor was giving me a hard time about it, like I was trying to get extra pills out of him or something. My sub doc is a great doctor, but he can be moody at times, and I think he is leaning toward me getting off the subs in the next few visits, although he hasn't said anything. This scares me because all I've really ever known is the altered state opiates put me in, and I never "grew up" so to speak. I'm not sure how long it will take me to be OK with being sober, and being able to deal with life without my "air". Everyday is a struggle in my life, and I've gotten rid of everything I had in my life to stay sober, sobriety is all I have now, and it's exceedingly difficult to start all over again, from age 15, and get a real, sober, life . I'm scared everyday, and any advice on this matter would be just great. And is it true that in a couple months I won't need to pay $402.80 for my pills anymore? Wow would that be nice, I could have money in the bank, move back to Florida, have a life again!

Wonderful to be a part of this forum,
JayJay, OHIO
