HEy everyone so i havent posted since saturday but i wanna confess that saturday day i ran into somebody who gave me a free suboxone film. i had it in my posession for 2 hours before i took a sliver of a piece . So on day 5 of no suboxone i took a sliver of a piece. and then sunday i took a little more and i took the rest of it yesterday night. :( wtf is wrong with me ?? Somebody please tell me im going to be ok. I wasnt strong enough yet to tell that person that i dont want any suboxone so i ended up taking it . :*( So im officially back to day # 1 which is today .......

Hey DONEwith SUBS, other than the fact that you're an addict, nothing is wrong with you!! :D

You're going through wd, you ran into a friend who offered you some Suboxone and you took some to feel better.....pretty understandable to me. I'm not trying to give you a free pass here, I'm just trying to say not to beat yourself up over this. You made a mistake, you've identified your weakness (not being able to tell the friend no) and now it's time to learn from the mistake and correct it, or it will happen again.

I slipped and fell flat on my face several times since getting off Suboxone, but I ALWAYS got back up, tried to learn from my mistake and got on with my life. You can do it, too!!

Pleasepassby, keep hanging tough, dude!!

ROMEO- i truely appreciate your words. I honestley belive what you said to be correct now that i have been really thinking about it. My mind is absolutley made up that i am ready and willing to break away from subs and im not going to let a slip up tare me down. Nothing could ever change my positive attitude about reaching my goal. You sound like a great person with great advice, and its much needed and im sure you help many people in many little (and big ) ways . 8)

Every little stumble ends up making me stronger and more aware. One of these days soon ill get it right, this just happens to be my journey right now, and I def. see light at the end of the tunnel
-Hope everyone out there reading is in a good place, stay positive my friends, ITS ALL SO VERY POSSIBLE <3

You're right, DONEwith SUBS. This is your journey, you have to find your own path. There are certain hallmarks to recovery, but in the end, I've found it to be a highly personal journey. I think this is why NA/AA have such dismal success rates. They have the hallmarks of recovery, but I think what craps out their program is the cookie cutter approach to recovery.

If you were thinking of attending NA or AA, I'd recommend it, you will learn a lot about recovery, but remember to keep what works for you and shit-can the rest. :wink:

I'm glad you're aware that every stumble has the potential to make you stronger and better in your recovery, that's a good attitude.

Be patient with yourself and be kind to yourself!!

I felt like if I could get the rls (of the body lol) and the sleep issues under control, the withdrawal from suboxone wouldn't be as bad. Those were my worst two symptoms.

It gets a little better everyday though.

You'll be alright.

Hello everyone, I stopped subs 5 months ago, after 4 years of use. Now, the last 2 years, I spent taking subs just to avoid the WD, I didn't have a plan! Gratefully today, I feel great, other than some sneezing and light fatigue, I truly do!
Knowing that you do not depend on a fucking pill to function, can be a powerful thing for someone who spent years chasing them. Good Luck!

Hey pleasepassby, glad to hear your past the physical wd!! I hope you stay around even though your feeling better. There is alot to be learned on this site! I also hope you have some kind of long-term recover plan like meetings or counseling so you can learn how to better deal with those cravings your feeling. What your going through is completly normal for an opiate addict to feel. I just hope for you to keep your sobriety as that seems to be the trickiest part of opiate addiction. Like what are you gonna do if you run into a situation where you doc is easily obtainable or shoved right in your face.?Do you have a plan or a way to cope? What if you have a shit day? I hope you would come on here and post instead of returning to the oxy. Theres alot of helpful people here that have been through all of this MANY times you can learn alot from them. I really liked reading the thread call "relapse in progress" i dont know how to post links but you can find it on the bottom of the main page of the forum in the "popular by views section". You should check it out when you have the time its a good read.
