Hi everyone,
I'm Missy, I'm 23 years old and I'm from the deep south so I have one of those "funny" accents and use words like ya'll and ain't :-D I have been on Suboxone for a month now with one slip up for about a week. I have found my Suboxone ride an uphill battle every day, esp when I have family members that don't really understand how it works and I can't just STOP taking it. I try to explain to them that if I could just stop taking it that I would have never got put on it in the first place. I am not on a very high dose compared to some (4mg) my doctor does not think that anyone should have to take a high dose. I have tried to taper down some but the slip up showed me that I am not quite ready for it. I know its going to be a long road but I can't help but to remember how good I felt when I was clean for two years by my self and how I never had to worry about getting in trouble with the law, family, or work and that gets me through. I wish all of you luck on your sub journey and I can't wait to make new friends and supporters on this site.

Welcome here Missy!

I read your other posts and also agree that you should just be honest with the doctors and hopefully they will get you out of the situation.

Anyway, you have come to the right place. So many amazing members here with lots of experience and knowledge of subs. I was on Suboxone at 24mg for about 3 years total and recently tapered down and now off. Today is my 10th day clean and I feel wonderful. My thread is in the "Stopping Suboxone" section and you can read if you have the time.

If 4mg of sub is holding you that's great Missy! When you do want to get off, if that's what you decide to ever do, it shouldn't be too difficult at that dose to do.

Again welcome and continue to post and update when possible. I'm sure many others will stop by and say hello. You will love it here as much as I do I'm sure!

Hugs,
Karen xoxo

I found this site when looking for Dr for my boyfriend, he wants to start suboxone... I am hoping to just get some insight to the program.
He was clean for a few 24's but due to my cancer diagnosis he made a bad choice to return to his DOC, but now is done and wants help.
I'm told that it's expensive, just wanted to get answers.

I want to say Welcome to Missy and somuchlove! A suggestion to somuchlove: you should start a new topic in Help Me/My Friend/Sibling/Child/Parent. You will probably get more traffic there for your particular information.

Missy, we've got a lot of great southern gals here and we are happy to have another!

Amy
