It is important to realize that our own perceptions well be altered by addiction; the road to true self-awareness requires listening what is said by others who know us, particularly if the also hope for the best for us. With that in mind, please post if you have family members or other close friends with addictions.

 Post subject: Oh, For The Love Of God...
PostPosted: Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:48 pm 
I just posted in the Freestyle board, alluding to the ever more apparent fact that I am losing my shit. No, I’m neither using nor abusing, I’m just exiting one state of crisis into another and have emerged from the cocoon of my own shame as some kind of mutant self hating moth.

My wife, whom I’ve described in other posts, got very up in my face about posting here. She doesn’t understand why addicts ...

 Post subject: The Straw That Breaks The Camel’s Back
PostPosted: Sun Oct 29, 2017 7:03 pm 
I assume that most of us come to this forum because we’re prescribed Suboxone (or similar) for opiate addiction. And as addicts, I’m going to assume that we’ve all wrestled with trust issues over years; our own trust of others, but more importantly, the trust others have in us.

Guys, I’ve blown it. Time and again, I’ve violated my wife’s trust in the service of my own selfish desire to protect access to my drug ...

PostPosted: Wed Oct 18, 2017 1:51 pm 
I posted some about this in the Scorn Flakes thread, and not to beat this dead horse any further, but I wanted to see if anyone had some perspective on managing the quasi-disability that is addiction with other disabled members of the household.

My wife has been self diagnosed with fybromyalgia. That is, she believes, the closest name for what she suffers, which in general are debilitating aches and pains and a complete inability to ...

I’ve mentioned some of this in passing in previous posts to other threads, but in regards to my family dynamic post addiction treatment, things...Things could be better.

In late 2014, my wife was diagnosed with late stage thyroid cancer. We got treatment in February of 2015, and as of now, she’s in remission, albeit, sans thyroid. About six months after her thyroidectomy, I came clean with her about my Norco abuse. It rocked our marriage ...

 Post subject: Another statistic hits close to home -
PostPosted: Fri Jul 21, 2017 5:50 pm 
A close friend of mine that I've known since we were teenagers was looking forward to her daughter's wedding coming up. Her daughter was so happy to finally have found her lifelong partner. The arrangements were made and the ceremony was on everyone's calendar. Then I noticed frantic calls for prayer and positive thoughts on Facebook. Her fiance was in the hospital and clinging to life. What could have happened when everything was going so ...

 Post subject: talking with subs in your mouth
PostPosted: Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:47 am 
My wife hates when I do this. It's not polite to use the "R" word anymore when referring
to the developmentally challenged, but that's the word my wife uses anyway. :D
We've been together since August 8, 1988. It's an easy date to remember. 8/8/88
Politeness went out the window shortly thereafter.

'You sound like a (insert "R" word), my wife complains, when I try to ...

 Post subject: Moms questions that need answers
PostPosted: Sun Jan 29, 2017 8:41 pm 
I have 2 adult children on Subx. One has been taking it for about 5 years, the other for 3 years. It seems that one has become overbearing with an attitude that is hard to be around. The other was always so loving but and has ADHD and is also taking Adderall. My concerns are that subx is causing them to become very different people. I understand while they were addicts they were very happy ...

PostPosted: Tue Dec 15, 2015 4:25 pm 
New member here. Hi all. Have been learning so much from this forum.

Feeling inspired to share a bit of our family's story in case someone can take something useful from it.

My now 20yo D became addicted to heroin while across the country at college. It took awhile for us to figure out what was going on. I wasn't aware at the time of the resurgence in use of heroin, so we were blindsided. ...

 Post subject: Need your opinion
PostPosted: Mon Dec 14, 2015 4:05 pm 
My husband is an addict. He recently went to the doctor to get a prescription for suboxone. I do not agree with taking something to replace your addiction. I say take the week or so and get over it. I can honestly say I have no idea what he is going through but have seen withdrawals from where I work.

I know this a prescribed medication but what is the point taking an opiode to ...
