If you decide that suboxone is not an option long term then quitting is achievable. All you need is a good plan to stick with. Preferably a week off of work or any other major responsibilities. After 33 days I am starting to feel much better. Sleep has been good and energy is making a comeback. I made my jump from 2mg which some would say is too high to be jumping from. In my opinion, 1mg would be ideal. I think going any lower than that is frivolous and only delaying the inevitable, all the while feeling terrible as you taper lower and lower. Don't listen to all the horror stories. It'll be rough for the first week or so but it is very doable!

cantbephaded,

33 days and feeling really good! That's great news! Way to go!!!!!!!!!!

I have to agree that tapering to an extremely low dose is not necessary for all of us. I decided to jump from a bit higher dose partially due to what you said about prolonging the inevitable. I figured I'm not going to feel great when I quit completely anyway, so I might as well bite the bullet and go for it. It seems to have worked well for both of us. Some people will want to taper to very, very low doses and I think that's fine too. To each his own.

I'm so happy you updated us with your awesome news. I'm sending you a huge high five!

I tapered way below 1 mg. My two cents is that it worked great for me. I was not miserable once I got under 1 mg and when I went off I was at like .001 mgs or something. So there was no "inevitable". I really had no withdrawals. I didn't need time off work, i didn't really feel anything. Sleep was fine, etc. For me with my career it was worth to just taper slowly and jump ocne I was down to almost nothing. Just my two cents.
