Hello everyone! Let me start by saying what a great site this is, i cant believe the things i have been reading here. So many posts about exactly what i have been thur /going thru atm.

I have been on Sub for about 1 1/2 years now, i got lucky to find a doctor when i did. Sub has saved my life, this i am sure of. But there are still alot of things that i have to deal with, typical addict stuff, that i know many people here have dealt with as well. Im looking forward to reading more here, and diving into this forum page for as much info as i can obtain.

Sub has kept me going this pass year or so, i cant think of going to work and doing a day without it, but i also have a desire to be completely drug and medication free at some point in the future, dk if this is possible yet, but i have made a year clean on 2 other occasions. so i have had a taste of what it's like to be free and i really want it more than anything!!! I get laid off in the winter months, (Mich) so i have considered trying to get off of Sub this winter when i dont have obligations to worry about.
looking forward to picking everyones brains for info on this site.

Thank you!

If you do get off of sub this winter while you are laid off, remember you while have plenty of free time to relapse. Idle hands man...be sure to stay busy.

Hi Ego and whosnxt,

Welcome to the forum!!

Ego, if I were you, I wouldn't quit Suboxone until I KNEW I was ready. I quit Suboxone when I knew it was my time to quit and over the last year and three months, I've had three short lapses. I can't imagine what would have happened had I quit Suboxone if I wasn't ready??

I hope you put a lot of thought into it before you quit.

Hi ego and a big warm welcome to the forum! I'm glad you've enjoyed reading the posts and are getting something out of them. I'm sure you'll also find the people here very supportive.

I also think, like Romeo, that you should wait to quit suboxone until you feel that you've done all the work you need to do and are really ready. When I say ready I mean that you're prepared to deal with unexpected triggers and cravings (to say the least). Those cravings will come crashing back when one stops suboxone and triggers will always be there.

Again, welcome to the forum and I hope to see you continue posting. Oh and BTW, I'm in Michigan, too. :)

Thanks guys, I definitely will not make any drastic leaps to try and get off of Sub, if it doesn't feel right i wont attempt it.
