Tomorrow will be 1 week of starting the suboxone program!
I'm curious how the first week went for some of you?

When I was first induced back in May of '10, I knew very little about it. Someone on a drug abuse forum kept telling me to get on it, that I would not feel any cravings. That statement seemed absurd. How could an orange pill satisfy my desire for lots and lots of opiates? I was never told it was an opiate too.

My first full day of induction was weird. I wasn't sure how I felt. Didn't feel bad, didn't feel much of anything. It kind of kept me numb but with a clear head. The first few days were the weirdest. I didn't have a craving for anything. Not nicotine, alcohol, drugs of any kind, nor sex. By the end of the week I had gotten used to it but felt the dose was too strong. My doctor disagreed and said to stick with what he prescribed. It was later on that I tapered on my own. That was the only dishonest part of my recovery back then.

You asked how our experiences were, what about yours? Anything abnormal?

I went on subs 5 maybe almost 6 years ago (I am off sub now), and remember feeling relief my first day on it. The sickness was gone, head was clear and I wasmotivated to change my life for the better. If you really work the program the correct way, utilize the support networks and committ to changing your life, subs are a godsend.

It gives you the chance to put time and distance between what was and what will be. Take advantage of your decision to better your life, move forward and never look back. There Iis no future in the past so try not to think back and miss your DOC. If you get a month or two down the road and think "well, I can dabble here and there", you set yourself up for failure. Like I always say "never look back and forge full steam ahead"

Good luck on your journey!
