There are other types of support groups out there like SMART Recovery. And I've heard so many times here that going to AA can be better than going to NA, for just the reasons you mentioned. At AA there are less likely to be pushers hanging out in the parking lot.

There are a lot of churches that can help you plug into a small group right away. That can be a great way to find support for yourself.

I'm glad you're doing so well at day 42. That's 6 weeks!! Keep up the good work!

Amy

I'm also new to the board. I have been taking suboxone for about 8 months now and in the last month had gotten down to about. 5-1mg a day. Thursday I took my last dose and have decided to ride out the storm and just regain my life again. Today is day 4 and I don't feel awful but I'm definitely better than yesterday. I'm just super exhausted and having mild back pain. I was just wondering if anyone knew how much longer ill have before normalcy returns or how to maybe gain some energy. By the way reading post on here since Thursday has kept me motivated.


I'm no expert but I think you may be one of the lucky ones? Excercise helps more than you could imagine. I myself am on day 13 off subs and still have physical wd. Keep hydrated, exercise, and aleve works WONDERS...most important is to stay positive. As corny as it sounds it has everything to do with succeeding. Best of luck
