Please post your days... First time I quit took me 30 days... right now im on day 4 and i feel like i could possibly be fine after 8 days? My friend only took 8 days to feel fine...

Main thing is; I was doing,almost 8mg of subs but ran out, so got 30s and kinda tapered with them since i coudlnt get subs due to it would cost me way to much money... that i dont have lol. I then used some 512s to sleep... so is it possible to feel fine after 8 days? since I didnt jump of subs instead an optiate?

My withdrawl symptoms are by far worse then any of my friends.... if there is a scale 1-5 of w/d symptoms im easy 4 or 5
due to me being unhealthy and have a addictive personallity... what do you guys thnk? Post ur days it took you to quit

I think this is one of the best questions.... that I havnt seen around..

It boils down to this....

Is it better to cold turkey of subs or a pain killer... and whats faster? (disregarding the pain)

From stories I heard and witnessed with some friends... They went cold turkey from a pain killer after taking subs and running out.. and I think it takes 1/3 of the time to quit cold turkey? can any one prove that?

The biggest problem I had with quitting regular opiates (pain pills) is that I would always go screaming back to those suckers in no time flat. Being on regular opiates did nothing to help me in my recovery. At least when I was on Suboxone, I wasn't out rippin' and runnin' all over hell's half acre looking for pills. Suboxone allowed me to put the craziest parts of my active addiction behind me and to learn how to live without chasing drugs.

I had a hard time getting off of Suboxone because I jumped from a high dose. It took me 30 days just to feel human again....but it was worth it.

Truly, the best way to get off of Suboxone is to taper.
