For those of you who have successfully stopped bupe, what are some of the best changes you've noticed or what would say has been the greatest benefit?

Just so you know I'm not off Suboxone anymore.

But I have had a couple of periods off Sub. For me the only really noticeable difference was the feeling of achievement you get in no longer being dependent on opioids. That's it. Oh yeah. I also wasn't heaps sensitive to cold in the winter months, and I didn't go into shock when I swam in the cold ocean like I do when I'm on Sub.

There was also more fear of relapse when I went off Sub. Apparently being on Sub is a bit of a psychological safety net. Once I go off it, there's much less a buffer between me and relapse. That's largely why I went to NA meetings.
