I've been on suboxone for a few years, today was my tenth day off and I ended up taking about .25mg of suboxone that I found in my desk. Now I feel so guilty and terrible about it and am dieing to know if I just completely wasted the 10 days I went through already? Even if I go through some acute withdrawal symptoms again, the guilt is killing me and could be the demise. Any comments would be huge, thanks in advance for advice/information.

You added a day or two to the process-- but who knows, maybe you needed a break and it will be better in the long run.

Pay attention to that part of personality that decided that you were SO miserable that you deserved a little something to help you out.... THAT is the essence of addiction. We all get used to having something that helps us tolerate the moment.... and those moments will continue to come up for the rest of your life. Find something else to do in response to those urges, and you'll be OK.

Thats great advice and I really appreciate the response, dead on. Just to update what happened my w/d's subsided for the day I took the piece of suboxone, the next morning I woke up and sneezed multiple times and felt achey...I was so relieved to feel the w/d's come back the next day which in my mind meant that the suboxone did not saturate my brain nor knock me back to the beginning. Second day and the diahrea is back but I can tell I'm heading right back into the long term PAWS symptoms which is another good sign being that it took about 5-7 days to get there originally. Hope this helps someone out.

To go off of what suboxdoc said I agree that it may have been a slip up that I needed to go through. Because when I felt the suboxone it brought back every emotion and feeling that I hated about it and gave me a fresh reminder as to why I want to be completely off suboxone, no more shackles.
