Hello, I've been reading here for a week now ,
I began suboxone five days Ago after a long chronic pain bout. Realized I had a problem with the Oxys when I was buying them after I ran out early
I just want to be normal again, I feel pretty good
I just have to get past the mental part which I'm finding is very hard
I hope to get some confidance and comfort here

Hello Gigi,
So glad to here your off that merry go round..
Sub will work for you. As time progress's you should become stronger.
It is also a good idea to find other people in recovery to help you aloug.
This forum is helpful as is Dr Junigs Talkzone. Read his many posts on everything suboxone. This is a great place to find answefs to questions too.

Youve made a great first step in finding the help to free yourself of opiate addiction. .keep posting..

Razor.....

Gigi welcome to the first days of the rest of your new life! You'll feel normal again, your body just needs a day or two to adjust to the new medication. The other side of feeling normal is answering the question what is normal. I'd been stoned and docile for so many years I sort of forgot what normal was and had to relearn parts of my life.

Also remember we're used to instant gratification, and we're not used to being uncomfortable for any length of time so part of the change is "waking up" to new feelings and thoughts.

You mention the mental part is the hardest - what are you feeling? Remember you haven't felt anything much in awhile, you've been emotionally numb.

Keep strong and read my post on why I'm quite happy on Subs to see your great future.


MrG

PS Great comments Razor.

Thank you do much for the reply
When I say the mental part I just mean that it's hard
When I'm active or have confrontation I get so annoyed and have the extreme urge to just continue taking the oxy like it's gonna make me feel better
But I have come this far and I take it one day at a time

Gigi it's hard cause you really haven't dealt with anything whole being sober for a awhile. Also we're used to being buzzed out all the time and not USED to feeling much of anything.

Hang with it, the Subs should kill any and all cravings, and you'll learn to deal with people and problems again (remember you weren't dealing with them before you were just ignoring everything while life passed you by).

Keep reading, be strong, and start living a little bit more every day.

Fedupfred, look up Johnny_ikon's thread under stopping suboxone. His thread is called "just jumped". He used to take methadone, switched to subs and then tapered off. He can answer alot of your questions. He is also doing really well off subs.

Start a new post, you've been posting mainly in other threads (from what I've seen) . It's also summer in North America so a lot of folks are vacationing / enjoying the summer.

But a new fresh post should help.

Hi FuF (sorry to hijack this thread temporarily Gigi).

Feel free to PM me if you have specific questions. I think it probably was a good move to finish my Methadone taper with Suboxone. but either way you go you will need to be prepared. The only thing I regret was not having a solid a plan -- I was just trying to get clean asap, but I think it would have been easier, and maybe even quicker, if I had planned things out more carefully in advance.
