Care to elaborate? That isn't much of an introduction.

Welcome to the forum anyway!

Hi there,Kanzeon

I'm a little confused by your first post " bad " and the second one " ha". tell us a little about yourself and what brings you to the forum, we love to get to know new members. There are many long time experienced members here and even some newer ones, who can answer any questions you may have or offer support if you're having any issues or problems or even if you're tapering or jumping. This forum is an awesome place for people in all stages or types of recovery and even for their families.

looking forward to hearing more from you Kanzeon, welcome :-)

Lizzie

Yup, that's a good video. My favorite part is the whole "j'mon" thing.

Hi Guys,

I had written a long introduction, detailing where I was at and what had brought me here etc.
It was viewed in the end 44 times with no comments. During that time others had written introductions and had replies. I checked back through old posts and could see no other introductions with zero replies...

I felt totally stupid, I was sure I must have written some pretentious self-indulgent shite, so I deleted it, and decided not to post again.

Then Rule 62 replied and we pm'd and here I am lol. I have since posted in the taper section - Feeling Impatient. A wee bit of info on who what why :shock:

Apologies for leaving the post the way I did - I did want to delete it completely but couldn't.

Sorry it's nothing more exciting than that lol

It's all good, Kanzeon. Where are you at now with Subs? Are you thinking about tapering, or are you tapering now.

I thought your first two posts were a very cool way to introduce yourself.

Hi Johnny,

I was on 12mg, I've been dropping 2mg every 2 weeks, on 8mg at the moment, going to 6 on Saturday :roll: :D

I started at 8 mg, and found it pretty easy dropping until I got down to 2 mg/day. That's when the taper started to getting challenging, and I think other people (long term opiate users) have had similar experiences.

Have you started thinking about a taper plan for lower doses?

It's kind of all mapped out for me - I don't really have much say in it other than to slow things down a bit. They've only told me definitely down to 2mg, after that I'm not sure.

Here to say...hey. I finally made the choice to go down Suboxone Lane. Hope it's a road I won't regret turning onto. It's just, 12 years of bouncing back and forth from one opiate to another, hitting rock bottom, losing everything precious to me, suffering through months of physical beat-downs and mental agony with the torture artist; withdrawal.

It took a lot of running in the woods and screaming at the sun on a daily basis to release the anger I felt towards myself. In doing that, though, I discovered running as a new outlet. When I began I couldn't run 1 mile, after two years I"d finished my goal of running a marathon under 4 hours.

I felt it, that feeling of being alive. It took two years of eating well and training for a marathon to transform my body into something I wouldn't have recognized 3 years ago.

Then the relapses began. And the addict mentality of thinking I could control this. I thought If I can run a marathon I can control this, and I slowly went back to the routine of taking pills, then , kratom when i didn't have the pills. Eventually buying bags of Enhanced Bali Kratom for hundreds of dollars every week.

Wow, this is going on and on and on. I do apologize. Suboxone has a bad rap in the Kratom community, where the plant is held on a pedestal of ivory and pearl. But It wasn't helping me, and the withdrawals from taking enhanced versions of kratom are just as bad as any other full agonist mu-receptor ticklers.

I currently take 12mg a day of suboxone. The doctor doesn't give me bad vibes at all, and neither does the counselor I see once a month.

Sorry for the autobiography. Introductions are always difficult for me.

Thank you for taking the time to read, or, at least trying if it was tl;dr :mrgreen:

Hi SteppenWolf and welcome to the forum!!! Thanks for sharing your story. Every few weeks or so, we hear about Kratom and most who bring it up prasie it.....until they have to get off of it. To the best of my understanding, Kratom is basically a broadspectrum opiate, even though it's technically not an opiate. How the DEA hasn't shut down this "plant" from getting in the U.S. is beyond me. As far as I know, it's legal in the U.S., but I may be wrong about that.

BTW, I love your song "30 days in the hole." Great tune!! :)

Hi SW. I can relate to the 'I can control it' mentality, it very nearly killed me. And though it's been years sinc e I touched heroin, I still need to see my powerlessness over the drug on a daily basis.

Welcome to the forum.

Thank you for the welcomes. Romeo, my avatar name was taken from a book by Hermann Hesse called Steppenwolf, lol but I am familiar with the band.

@ J_i noticed you and many other members have taken the jump and are all landing wonderfully. I"m happy to have joined when I did, there's a lot of positivity in the air. Keep maintaining that forward momentum. I truly wish all of you who have stopped the best.

It is my goal to stop one day. The time is not now, but I know when the time is right it will present itself.
