I think this could be a useful outlet for many of us. I'd like to start something up if anyone else would be interested...? I'm in CST, but we can work out the logistics once we get a group together.

Reply here or message me and we can set it up! :)

So CST is referring to time zone, yes? I'm in mountain time myself. I'm definitely interested in online meetings. Since I have to put a lot of energy into my classes (when I'm not on break) I can't organize meetings, but I would attend.

Yay, that's so awesome! I'm excited :)

Ill set up the times and post an 'official' announcement once all the details are solidified...but I'm afraid I won't be of much more use as far as leading discussion topics or facilitating conversation. As pertaining to sobriety and recovery, I'm still pretty wet behind the ears, as they say. Like three weeks ago new. Lol.

I thought this would be a good endeavor for me personally because i am so new. There's so much to learn. What's normal medication reaction, what's not? How to handle stressors and avoid old coping mechanisms. How to educate people about the benefits, and necessity, of maintenance meds, etc...But I DONT think I would be a prime candidate to talk on these topics siiiince I'm totally lost. Lol

Ok, brass tacks: yes, I meant central zone when I said CST. So we've got the difference as follows:
EST 12a
CST 11p
MST 10p
(And if anyone on the west coast wants to join...)
PST 9p

Does anyone have any preference on days or times? Or any particular days/times that wouldn't work and we can narrow it down?

I'm very flexible with scheduling. If I had to choose I guess I would prefer the evenings anywhere from 8:30p+ (any day). If not, then around 11a-2p would be prime too. But again, my schedule is free and clear for the foreseeable future... lmk what you guys are thinking...

I say we start next week. Yay? Any?

. This is a good idea. A great place to get the right information in to the hands of those who are new and for the others who can share there experience.

I must say that the times are a bit late. Im in the east and 12 midnight is way to late, at least during the week for me.

Also, since you are just getting started I would highly recommend downloading Dr Junigs Users Guide to Suboxone.
It is full of correct information and resources.

There is much to learn and congratulations on finding this forum and Buprenorphine for your recovery.

I'd definitely attend too. I'm eastern time and like razor, midnight would be a little too late for me too. Bk when I got out of rehab, in my pre sub days, I was actually a moderator for an online NA sight that did online meetings...that seems like a million yrs ago now. I eventually relapsed and faded from that scene. They were pretty firm on suboxone opinions bk then, so I never think about it really. Anyway I'm rambling, but yes I'd attend! :)

I am in the Central (CST) time zone, anytime after 6:30pm M-Fri would work for me. Looks like we'd have enough people interested for a small group, which can be a good thing. I enjoyed the "good" 12 step meetings, especially the speaker meetings, and the past few months, I've been lurking around on line searching for meetings. I don't need daily meetings, but a group discussion about some of the problems we face, ways to educate others, and just generally support each other would be helpful to people here I believe.

Sorry I've been MIA guys... I've been sooooo sick. Some kind of virus had me out all week :((

I think we have enough people now. We could start tomorrow. But does anyone know how to do this? Lol Do we create a chat room? Or join one? Or start a new thread in this discussion board?

... any ideas??

Shoot! I was operating under the assumption that we could do a chat here, but I just clicked on it and see that ours doesn't work! Unfortunately that is not a problem I can fix.

I am interested too.
So how is it going to work?
Oh and Razor (or anyone else who knows), where do I find Dr Juings user guide to suboxone? Please

Thanks

That's awesome, Amy!! I clicked on it too and it wasn't working... let us know when you have it up and running.

Does 8p CST work for everyone tomorrow (pending chat fix) ?

Translated, login times would be as follows for each zone:
9p EST
8p CST
7p MST
6p PST


We can adjust if need be, but I wanted to get a time and date out there.


Ps... I can't find the user guide either :(

Link to Users Guide: suboxonetalkzone.com /guide.pdf.
Passsord: "bupe".

Great real information for you and your own dr to talk about.

I believe Amy said she couldn't fix the chatroom problem. May have to do this another way.

Well crap about the chat room. Now I need to problem solve lol... I'm gonna outsource and look into some chat/messenger site/apps.

We used line when I played game of war but now I can't get it on this device (totally killed that game for me haha)... soooo maybe something similar. And free.

How's that sound?

I went there and added my name and a little message. Why don't we all go to the link tomorrow, Monday the 11th at 8pm Eastern, 7pm Central, 6pm Mountain, 5pm Pacific? Let's try it at that time. All you need to do is give a name (mine is Amy-Work in Progress) and click that you are of age.

Want to give it a go?

Amy
