Been on Subs about 3 years. When I first started I would smoke about two and a half packs a day and now I am down to a pack a day. Did anyone else experience this or notice it. Thanks

Oh yes'. my med doc advised me that being on subs will make me smoke more than ever. and being just a med doc and no not much about soboxone he hit it on the nail. i'm trying to cut down to 2/12 packs a day :( i try to eat raw garlic, for it can revive the lungs.

Maybe I am reading it wrong, but the OP seems to indicate the suboxone has curbed his smoking. This is more than likely due to quitting full agonists. When I was doing oxy, I could smoke non-stop.

So true. Just like I'd have a cigarette with my coffee, I'd have a cigarette after my Suboxone. I'd even say I smoked more on Sub than I did on heroin (maybe because I could afford smokes again).

But you CAN quit smoking on Sub. I've done it a few times :)

Actually I cut down to a pack a day after doing 2 and a half a day for two years when I first started subs. My system has gotten used to the Subs and thanks god I don't feel the need to smoke as much anymore. Today its just one pack per day. Before Subs I might of smoked half a pack on a good day. Smoking is just as expensive as a dam hardcore drug habbit now days. For a single pack around my area it cost $8.75 after tax per pack

It's funny because when I started Vics three years ago it made me smoke ALOT! A pack and a half a day. I thought that when I started subs that I would be cutting back on smoking. Now today was my first sub, I'm a newbie, but when I took my sub and it kicked In, I started smoking like crazy! Grrrr

I have noticed that I crave nicotine big time when in withdrawal... it really stinks. I tend to only smoke a few cigs every few days, but I do use snus.

The amount I'm smoking is seriously ridiculous. By the time I get off Subs my lungs will look worse than my grandmothers. I can hardly breathe most of the time because I am chain smoking an insane amount, almost 2.5 packs a day.I tried lowering my dose with no results. When I don't have the subs in me such as after waking up, I smoke my morning cig and can usually hold off a bit. But as soon as that Sub is flowing threw my veins I am lighting cigarettes one after the other with maybe 5 minute intervals between each one.

I quit once by taking Wellbutrin while I was on Subs before and it was like some kind of miracle drug. I literally said this is my last cigarette and it was and I stayed nicotine free for 6 months until I went into rehab to try and detox from subs (failed, but succeeded the 2nd time and stayed off them for a few months before getting right back on them since I was using again.) Has anyone else had this experience with Wellbutrin? I still have a crap ton of the 150mg pills left over and was thinking of trying that again. Only problem is I have no health insurance so if I ran out I might be beat. I'm also a little nervous because I started taking it in on my 2nd visit to rehab while detoxing from kpins also and had a grandmal seizure.

I'm going to talk to my PC Doc and see if I can get on the Wellbutrin and I'll post here again soon to report my progress. If anyone else has any tips or advice please share.

This did not happen for me. I couldn't smoke like I did when I was actually getting high. I cut back on smoking a lot once I was on subs and eventually quit. Maybe you're on too much? I don't know..

I smoked way more when i was sniffing or poppin 200mg oxy a day. No way i do that on subs though. That lighting one cig with the next was was me on oxy. Now if i am smoking some herb and have sub in me. Ya i will go on a free for all and smoke a pack. But normally on just sub. I smoke like 5-8 cigs a day.

Keep trying to chain smoke like your johhny depp in fear and loathing in las vegas. That guy ALWAYS had a ciggie going. Sometimes he walked around with a broken cigarette in his mouth. : )
