Hey Guys,

I have read post here for at least a year. Wanting to take the leap but not being able to find a doc. I FINALLY got contacted from the naabt dot org website and the next day (yesterday) was in the doc's office. I had been on oxy's for about 10 yrs. Chronic back pain, easy to get them, nobody questioned it. But it was killing me. Had taken my soul. I was scared to death. I've detoxed before and it was 2 months of hell. I was still not "right" 6 months later. Had more surgery back on the pills.... Anyway. If you are on the fence, scared of this, unsure. Please don't be. This was as painless and easier than I could have ever hoped for. If you are on oxy etc. just make sure you haven't used in at least 12-16 hrs. I was uncomfortable but not miserable. Before I left their office I was felling "normal". I slept last night, didn't have any wd's at all, some mild chills once in a while today but really feel like a human for once. Anyway I'll quit rambling. But please if you are considering doing sub then go. Today if you can.

I'm so glad you've taken the plunge and started on suboxone! I started reading posts on this forum fall '11 too! That was after I was induced, but I still didn't start posting until February.

I'm so happy for you that you get to return to a state of normalcy after being on oxys for so long. I will never forget how wonderfully normal I felt when I left the doctor's office. I was amazed!

Thank you for sharing your experience with everyone. I hope it will help others on the fence decide that they can do this, even if they're scared. I hope you stick around and let us know how you're doing. Sometimes, after the good normal feeling is familiar, you can start to feel a little depressed or at loose ends. For me it was hard because I had spent so much time thinking about my pills, and I didn't know what to do with my brain or my time. Seeing an addiction therapist was a huge help to me! She helped me keep things in perspective.

Anyway, thank for helping others with your story!

Amy
