PostPosted: Fri Dec 30, 2011 9:58 pm 
Hi all,

I used to browse this forum a lot. Then I joined, made a few posts, then disappeared.

I was all over the place with dosing as my supply was erratic. I went off the rails again, but, now am stable on 8mg - once a day.

Been clean for a few months now as managed to get my supply more stable.

Thought I'd come back to where it all started for me, to see how others are doing and to try an make sure next year is my first full year clean from h.

I've no intention of quitting subs, that line of thought has repeatedly led to relapse for me, never say never though 8)

Looking forward to getting more involved this time

Regards

Homer

Hey! Welcome (back)! It's great that you have made a decision to try something different rather than doing the same thing and expecting different results! Like you said, never say never, and when you're ready I think tapering from Suboxone will be totally doable, but for now I think it's great that you are giving yourself some time on a stable dose to simply get life issues in order before thinking about the process of tapering. For me, it's really not that difficult to take a couple pills daily when I remember all the craziness that went along with active addiction for me. Buprenorphine has been nothing but positive for me and puts distance between me and active addiction so I can be successful. Anyway, just wanted to welcome you back!

-Travis

Welcome back and I am glad you have decided to live the life you know is better than the one you had past. I too abused H and now I have been on bupe for just over 7 months. I love that it keeps my cravings at bay. Keep posting and happy new year (clean)

It'll never be worth it buddy. Keep strong on the bupe. Cut ties with the H people in your life. This may seem horrible, but It's amazing life advice, read the quitting suboxone with heroin thread. Read the entire thread in the stopping suboxone forum. Addiction and cravings are immensely difficult. Put your entire essence into committing to Suboxone. You'll be a happier person because of it.

Nothing good will come from heroin. As one of the probably more negative people towards Suboxone I still ( am not a doctor ) recommend focusing entirely on using suboxone and nothing else. You can do it if you put your mind too it.

This is a learning experience for every addict. I can tell you though Suboxone will help. Suboxone will allow you to regain your humanity that heroin and oxy can take from you. If you want to be clean throw those rigs in the trash. You don't need that crap.

A day wiser indeed. Do the right thing for yourself man.
