Hi everyone, Just dropping in to say hello my unforgettable friends here and for those of you that don't know me, I am the grandmother of the forum 71 yrs. old. You can go back & read my story.

I am doing well and I hope you all are too. This thing called addiction is a terrible thing and Suboxone helped me beat it. I started out on 32 mgs. about 3 1/2 years ago. I am now on 8 mgs. and hoping to cut down more. Doctor says I should stay on 8 mgs. Why bother to go through the discomfort. We shall see.

My love to all of you and please don't give up the fight. It's not worth it. Remember the bad times.

Love, Queenie

Thanks for your inspiring story.

I recently met a man who is now one year clean after a 35-year crystal meth addiction. He's in his early mid-60s. Show's me that wherever we are in life, it's not too late (or too early) to get free from this sh*t.

Good luck.

Hi Queenie. Good to hear from you again!!

Dang, you're down to 8mg, that's awesome!! Have you noticed any difference from 32mg to 8mg? Less side effects?

Hi, First of all, Romeo. I tapered slowly from 32mgs to 8. Didn't feel a thing. Don't know when or how my next taper will be. It's up to my dr. He is a good doctor and has been very good in pain control when I had my many surgeries.
Thank you all for your kind replies. Keep up the good work and if you stumble, get up and start again. It's o.k.

Hugs, Queenie

Hi Queenie, I just wanted to pop in and say hi to your too. We all bow in respect to our forum grandmother. You have been through so much that it's good to see a post from you w/o medical issues in it.

I too tapered down way back when and had no problem with it either. From 8 I went straight to 4 with no ill effects. Then 3, 2, 1.5, and got stuck on 1 mg until I was diagnosed. Now I'm back up to 6 mg's mostly for pain related to my illness and age. Just last month I turned 60! This was the only birthday I didn't want to be. Being 50 still felt like my 30's except for some aches and pains. I still feel like a young pup and can do anything physically. As long as I have my Suboxone and Aleve all will be well. I have no intention on ever quitting it but then one never knows what will happen in the future. I induced on May 2, 2010. Four years on it and except for the sleepiness I still feel, it's been the right choice for me. And with you being older than me, just stay on it until death do you part.

Thanks for checking in and saying Hi,

rule
