Clean 40 hours off of 10/15 bags of dope a day habit. Basically been sleeping the entire time thanks to a ton of clonidine and oxazeoam prescribed by a sypthetic doctor. I'm the father to three wonderful kids I hate seeing me like a zombie like this. I have a few subs a friend had given me a ways back and was strongly considering joining a sub clinic before this last ditch attempt to quit without. Should I take a sub this morning instead of continuing with the massive amounts of clonidine? It's been 40 hours but I'm no where near a 26 on the cows sheet because of all the other meds I've been taking. Terrified of precipitated withdrawals, keep in mind I'm in a house with three kids, can't have them see that. Any help or advice would be great. Thanks so much. I don't want to just go sniff the bags sitting in my closet and then call a proper sub clinic on Monday

Mookie, if your serious about stopping all this, first and number one is to get thoses leftover bags the hell out of your house!!
How many times have you done this before? Quiting only to start useing again? More than once id bet, hell ,we all do.

Your best bet to Stay off H is to get with a Sub dr and give yourself some real time away from the life. A few subs here and there off the street won't do it either. Imo it just rarely works out.

Yes, you will become dependent on Buprenorphine, I am, and uno what?, its been the best 5 years of my ole life. Your on your way to induct. Stay the course. Keep grading yourself on the COWS, and when it is time go very slowly with the subs you have.
Your kids will see a new improved Dad . Your a stroug one Mookie, hang in there..but please dump that dope, or one day you will use it and all that comes with it.

If you want to try 1 to2 mgs of sub now, It sounds ok . 26 on the scale is pretty high. .

Hey Mookie.

Razor is 100% right in everything. There's no way you'll be able to completely stick this out with heroin in ur closet stashed away. Even if u successfully induce on suboxone now with the few strips u have, that H in the closest will call for u and when ur at ur weakest point, you'll answer and there goes ur attempt again at recovery. Get rid of it now if ur serious about getting better.

I also think it's very important to get ya a suboxone doctor. If u don't, you'll run out of medicine eventually and be tempted to use again. U can succeed at this, u just have to take the right steps. Suboxone had saved my life, I don't care what anyone else has to say about it, it's made me want to live life again. I have 3 children also, and they saw me go from my worst to my best....ur children can too. Suboxone is a tool, it takes u really working on urself to achieve what ur looking for, u can do this!
