Day 6 of no Suboxone....... I feel pretty damn good ! Sleep is still an issue but was a big improvement from Day 5. I went from 1-2 hours all night to about 5 hours total ! I feel asleep at 9:30pm then woke up at 11:48pm. I was mad ! But after watching TV til 2:30am I passed out until 5:36am ! I know that doesn't seem like a good night, but after the no sleep from Day 5, this was great ! I am at work again and have a very positive attitude ! I really do thing that this is coming to and end ! Probably by the weekend I will be sleeping 5-6 hours straight. I have more energy everyday and I have something that I haven't had in 5 years.......EMOTIONS ! Do I still get depressed during this time ? Of course ! I am human ! Do the good out weigh the bad now ? You bet your sweet ass it does !

5 days of hell for 5 years of opiate abuse is a pretty sweet deal !

Don't get me wrong, I am not 100%, but I haven't felt this good about myself in YEARS !!! Can't wait to see what tomorrow holds !!!

YA'LL CAN DO THIS ! I RELAPSED 10 TIMES AND THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER STOP !

FIND YOUR MOTOVATION !!! ITS THERE !!!

Reading this definitely made me feel better! Today is Day 6 for me & I don't really feel good at all....& I can't tell if I feel better or worse then yesterday. Last night I slept for an hour it was awful :( I slept from 7am to 8am so I was up all night long....I had the worst restlessness. I'm exhausted right now but I forced myself outta bed took my clonidine & ate breakfast, lol but now I'm back in bed because I don't know what to do with myself....I'm so afraid that this isn't getting better at all :( Day 1 I was fine I slept great & wasn't sick at all same with Day 2 but Day 3 4&5 were hell for me and I wanted to give up so bad but I didn't because I really want to put this all behind me so I never have to be sick again...it just feels like it's taking forever. I'm disappointed because today is Day 6 for me & I really thought I'd be feeling better but I still have the chills & hot flashes :(

Hey Kitten, I'm sorry you're not feeling better yet, but I want you to know that still feeling yucky at Day 6 is pretty normal. A lot depends on what your dose is when you quit. The higher it is, the worse and longer the symptoms you may experience. From what I have read, the worst of the symptoms seem to peak somewhere between 7 and 11 days. So hang in there! I know it's hard, but you can do it! By next weekend you should be feeling a bit better!
