Hi cjr and welcome. If I'm understanding what youre saying, by slipping up you mean even though you are on Sub you are using occasionally? I did the same thing during my first year. The thing is, in order to use you need to stop your Sub for a few days. It's a slippery slope and over time it wil be less and less effective. I found I was taking more and more drugs to get less and less high. I finally made the decision to take my Sub every day no matter what, and accept the fact that drugs aren't going to work for me anymore. I mean that's why we got on Sub in the first place, right? Don't be too hard on yourself. Every day is a new opportunity to do better. Those old behaviors die hard. Keep moving forward and keep coming back to this site, you will get a lot of support here.
Take care,
Lilly

Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you found us. I'm confident you'll find the support here you're looking for. I'm curious, what dose of sub are you on? If you are on a high enough dose and take it regularly, then it should block any high you take, PLUS more importantly, it should address your cravings. Also, if you take it in a different way - again a high enough dose and take it 2-3 times a day, it might help you more with your chronic pain. (I also take it to help my pain.)

Let us know and maybe we might have some input regarding your dosing and it could give you some ideas to discuss with your doctor. And like Lilly said, don't be too hard on yourself. Good luck.
