[font=Verdana] [/font]Hello everyone... just a bit of background... on July QO ill be loritab frr for 4 yrs..I've been on suboxone for almost 4 yrs... I finally decided it was time to come off of EVERYTHING... 8ts been a journey..here is my story... I was diagnosed with 2 dyerniated disks in my lower back.. so the doctor decided since I was having minor pain to put me on loritabs... they worked for a while till I started abusing them at the rate of 20 a day... I never had to street buy because my mom had the same script..if I ran out she floated me till mine came in..sad I know... I wasn't proud of the crap I did while using loritabs... even trading my own mother plain vitamins saying they were tabs..mind you this was 5 yrs ago...my entire addiction lasted 8 months.. then I realized I had a problem..I was lying to loved ones and being someone I knew I wasn't... so I sat my entire family down..told them EVERYTHING I had done (all part of the process my friends) I put myself into detox and wlked out feeling 100% normal on suboxone... they had me on R Img a day at first...then to E...then to the strips... ick...strips taste like ass just sayin... nyways... I finally had the talk with my doctor and decided to taper off..so in December I tapered to 3 stripes to one... then from one strip to a tiny piece of a strip equal to 1mg of sub a day... I finally jumped at that point...its now day 6..I find if you keep yourself up and going it helps a lot...laying downall day will make you feel like sh*t I don't reccomend it...drink lots of water and do take something to keep your belly settled...crackers and water will be ur fav meal for a while... better then nothing... and yes I do still have loose bowels.. that's part of it too..I realize this is a final step in a process to get my life back 100%... I am fully aware I did this to myself because of a weakness I had at one time.. I am ready for this new life ...folloing is a list of meds I've weaned off of since starting this process.. and I feel great.. if I can leave you with a word of advice don't fill every script a doctor gives you I found out that living a better life and making better choices will set you on the right path..not a medicain cabinet stuffed to the brime with useless scripts... I took myself off of: loritab... 2 anti deppressants...an anti axiety med...ambian... and 2 asthma meds.... all of which I found I do better without... so that's my story... does anyone have something to share? Please?

Are you finding it difficult psychologically or mainly just physically? Four years is a long time, did you feel after just one or two years that you would relapse without it? I have a feeling I'll need to be a long term user, the back of my mind is already planning my relapse if I were to be off the subs anytime in the near future.
