I have been on Suboxene since Jan. Did the white knuckle for months and knew I had found what I needed. I have chronic pain and I have been very comfortable, actually able to have a life again. After over 15 years on meds that took me to places I don't even remember, and places I don't want to remember. I am amazed at what Suboxone has done for me. I look at what Opiates and other drugs were doing to me and I look at what Suboxone is doing for me. Being an addict, I have fought this too, do I have to be on this the rest of my life...For me the answer is YES. I weaned myself off after vacation this month, I won't go into details of the personal crap that goes along with this but I am now miserable. The pain is bad, so I know that I must stay on Suboxone.

Hi secondlife and welcome to the forum. I hope you find as much support here as I have. Like you, I have chronic pain and my life was nearly destroyed by "legitimate" pain meds. Because of my addiction, I can never go back to treating my chronic pain with regular, full-agonist opiates. Suboxone (with the help of a muscle relaxer) helps treat my pain and for the most part makes it tolerable and manageable. Like you, I will probably be on it for life. The way I look at it, it's WAY better than going back to the chaos of active addiction.

Again, welcome to the forum. I'm glad you found us. I hope you stick around and post often.
