Listen, I'm thrilled for those of you who thought it was; a piece of cake,easy,so simple,no bad reaction,
a breeze,a cool breeze etc. to get off Suboxone. For the 99% of us who do not feel that way, do not
fret because that isn't the case for you. Suboxone/Subutex is a true paradox; it saves us from near
certain eventual death and destruction but is a real bitch to get off of itself! Well guess what? I feel
GREAT :lol:! No, scratch that. I feel REALLY GREAT :mrgreen: because I'm still on Subutex and will
be for the rest of my life and I'm okay with that.

You don't sound too thrilled to me. You sound pretty resentful. Replacement therapy is nothing to be ashamed of, but I'm not sure I'd be bragging about it either. By the way, how do you know if 99% of people feel like you. Did you ask all of them?

Golden, this kinda goes back awhile and as a newcomer, I can see why you might see it this way. It's almost like an inside joke...

You're right, I did a quick read and took it at face value. Bad idea. However, I think I get it now.

I feel the EXACT same way......
when I asked my doc about going off,,, he asked, whos pressuring you???
then says, your on PAP from RB, and I only charge you 20 dollars each appointment.
I STRONGLY reccomend, you just relax awhile and take life as it comes right now....and you
cant be in active addiction, the way you were, as heavy as a user as you were for 10+ years and
think your 'cured' in 12 months.

I get along with my doc very well nowadays.......

thanks for your post!!!!!

Merry CHRistmas by the way!

Honestly, there is no right and wrong. You are making the best choice for yourself, and that is being responsible. You are saving your own life. You know that without Sub, you would self-destruct. So, you should be very happy with your choice and if someone has a problem with it, well, just smile and go on living your life.

Yeah, Darts is great game, but this ain't the place to play it.
I don't think suBtle face slapping is helpful in any ones recovery, unless it's you smacking your own face. :)

I assume that was directed at my post. No biggie. Just be a little more accurate. By no means did I say a piece of cake or that it is easy. I also know Im not saying Im 100%. But the worst is behind me. Btw my doc also said, you could be on it for life. Nice guy. But he knew it was driving me crazy. If it doesn't drive you nuts then thats cool to. Maybe some day. I just put to much pressure on myself and couldn't take it anymore. I knew I could not stay on it forever. Mentally it was killing me. Like said. Everyone is different and no cut and dry answers. Good luck with whatever you choose :D

That was a polite and generous response, No sub. Again, I have no doubt your overall attitude and personality had a lot to do with your success.
