Hi I know i am not supposed to drink with suboxone but have been getting drunk around 5 days a week for about 2 weeks. Usually i feel great I usually just have tequila or gin but last night I had vodka which i have had bad experiences with and a shot of whiskey along with tequila. Last night was a horrible experience I went to the club with my friend and next thing I started having a emotional breakdown which I am not sure what caused it. Also I am wondering how much damage I could be doing doing what I am doing. Thanks for reading.

Hey Cory,
Been told a number of times that drinking alcohol
and subs does not mix well. Never really have done it myself.
A friend has said that you miss out on the warm jolly feeling
and go straight to a heavy feeling.
And that was on beer.. Ha

Plus, ya we are to be in recovery.
Working it as they say.
I don't think drinking is part of that plan..

Why you sank down at the club is everyone's guess.
Maybe look at it as a learning experience Cory...

Hey Corey,

I just wanted to reiterate what razor said about drinking and recovery. Often times when you stop one drug you substitute it with another. It's no secret alcoholism is a serious disease, and especially as addicts we are more prone than others.

Regardless of whether you're on suboxone or not, combining vodka, whiskey, and tequila is a bad mix and could make you feel ill. From what I was told, it's relatively fine to drink if you are only having one drink. A lot of people don't though because of what that one drink can lead to. For some reason suboxone makes me not want to drink. I was never a big drinker so it's not a noticeable difference in the drunk feeling to me although i'm sure there is one.

I'm not an expert but 5 days a week sounds like a bit much to me to be getting drunk while in recovery. Just be careful and mindful it's a risky road to go down. Good Luck!
