Hi Tony! It's nice to "meet" you and I am glad to hear you are doing well. I can't even imagine loosing my dad, my heart goes out to you.
I have been on sub for over three months and I feel the same way you do! I am exposed to narcotics as well (at work) and I have NO desire to use them. I can't imagine being around these drugs forever though and am working on a plan to be away from them, just in case.
I am also going to AA meetings, working with a sponsor, going to relapse prevention class, and seeing a counselor. Are you doing other things to support your recovery too? For me, I think all these things with the addition of suboxone will truly save my life.
Anyway, congrats on two months! That is awesome! Keep us updated and take care, Kire

Hi Kire thanks for posting,
To answer your question,I am so busy helping everyone else in the family that I don't have any time for counseling or meetings at this point.Shopping and taking care of mom,Grandma(who lost her son) and my little sisters,I'm constantly on the go.I think helping others is my therapy right now.
Perhaps in the future I will get a therapist.
Just in case I seem like a rock,I will say I certainly have had my crying moments over dad.He was only 55...
