Hi there. I'm new to all of this. This is my first day on suboxone and hopefully to a new life. I've been reading the forum and just want to say thank you to all of you for posting and sharing your experiences. I have a 16 year old son and I am fighting this battle for him. He is the only one that knows what I am doing. The doctor I went to today made me feel very good and was warm and caring I was very lucky to find him. I don't want to be on suboxone forever but at least I am taking the first step in my road to becoming free of my addiction.
Thank you all again for being there :wink:

Hello Overit and welcome to the forum,

Congratulations on taking the steps to get your life back ! I have kids around the same age as yours and they also know what I'm going through.
I hope they learn from what I have gone through and never abuse drugs like I did.

Keep us posted on how your feeling !

WELCOME!!!!!!!

thats so great your making this change, for YOURself, and your SON :D

I wish I could tell you the worst parts over, but unfortunately, NOW the real work begins!!!!!

this journey isnt easy, but I promise its worth it!!!

Have you looked into going to any groups? (AA, NA, or addiction support groups)

I saw an addiction therapist about 6 months into treatment, which really helped me open some doors inside my head as to what started my entire addiction career, and how NOT to go back!!!
You may want to look into something like that, too.

Wishing you the very best,
Hope you stick around, theres so much good information here.

Good Luck

Thank you. I woke up this morning and felt fantastic. I expected to have that bad withdrawal feeling but when I opened my eyes I actually felt rested and didn't even have to take the sub first thing when I got up.
I know my son has learned a lot from watching my ups and downs and I like you can only hope our children will think about it before they get trapped in it.

Thank you so much again for listening :lol:

Hi Overit42, and welcome to the forum...glad you found us! Isn't it wonderful to wake up in the morning feeling like a normal human being, and not feeling like you have to reach for a pill to be able to get outta bed?!

Overit,

I STILL wake up each day and totally love that normal feeling ! It just doesnt get old !
I try to take my Sub when I first wake up, but there's been days where hours go by and
then I remember. I know when that happens, Suboxone is doing it's job !

It's great not having to worry when and how your going to get your DOC. I had a little rough night my second day on subs not sure if I took to much or it was from the heat but my head felt like it was going to explode. I woke up this morning still with a slight headache so I'm going to try to take less and see how that goes. I still feel awesome not having to reach for a pill though and I will never regret making the decision to do this :D

Hello Overit,

I just wanted to point out with the headaches, basically the easiest thing to do is to make sure you drink enough water. Even slight dehydration can cause headaches, I don't know where you live, but it's SOOO hot on the east coast, so it's even more important to stay hydrated.

Stay cool !
