I posted my story yesterday but here is the short version:

Started suboxone @ 8mg almost exactly 1 year ago

Tapered over the past year to 1mg and stayed there for a month

Jumped off @ 1mg 9 days ago and went thru 7 days of hell!

Yesterday was better, but still uncomfortable. Took Ibprophen and a low Xanax dose.
Went for a jog around 10:30pm and fell asleep around midnight.... To my surprise I woke up at 7:30 am and couldn't believe I slept so well... A little tired and slow but no pain or wd symptoms...

Took a hot shower, went for a jog and couldn't believe how clear headed I felt and ZERO pain, cravings or Ill effects. It was like a switch in my brain turned on and started producing natural endorphins again... I feel better today then I have in years!!

My question is this, Do withdrawals just turn off??? Does your brain just wake up and all of a sudden its over?

Thanks for all the support!!!
The info avail here and the words of encouragement gave me the will to power thru it and not give up
People who haven't gone thru this just can't relate and don't get it! The people here are great!

THANK YOU ALL

I havnt experienced sub wd yet but this has happened to me numerous times when I was using and still working out. I'd bum around for a week than finally force myself to workout and BAM I'm back to normal. You may have gotten lucky.

I would venture to say you are probably over the worst just given the days now you have been abstinent. Keep the jogging up. Not sure of your history and such but like the other post say you maybe one of the lucky one's that still has their god given natural ability to create endorphins urself. Good Luck and I am proud of you. I think Ur worst is for sure over and maybe no more ill effects

Congrats on getting this far. But fair warning, this is a long process. I'm at 30 days or so, and I still have physical symptoms that come back in flashes, however they only last 10 or 15 mins, and are gone. They are very mild, I think, by virtue of the fact that I stopped at such a low dose(0.00625mgs) but at day 10 i still had several flashes a day. So just hold the fort down, deal with whatever comes, don't get surprised, and in a few months you will feel great.

Good going!
