So I'm pretty new to this forum. But it seems really real and raw so I'm glad I found it. I've been taking subs for about 2 1/2 years I'm at the point where I don't even consider taking opiates anymore. Not even a little bit. I want to regain control of my life and stop taking subs completely! I'm taking .25 now. Will I feel much of a withdrawal if I just stop?? After i take a lesser dose, what's next? i guess I'm just so afraid of feeling like crap that I'm too nervous to not take a piece. I read so many horror stories about getting off so his forum was a relief to me. I hope someone can help or give any feed back!!

Your not alone and what your going through is difficult. I don't have an answer to your question but read the post I left in the "down to 1mg " discussion. If you have any questions let me know. Hope your well and still tapering.

miss Jade,
You posted on June 29th, it is now Aug.
I am SO interested in how you made out.
Did you do the jump yet from the .25?
I myself have been on suboxone for 2 yrs and did a slow drop when I first started at 16 mg and am now down to half of a 2mg strip which would be 1mg.
The drops were very easy and I have not suffered physically at all.
The only suffering I went through is the psychological part of it.
The mind is very tricky and can cling onto fears like no tomorrow.
I am having surgery on my knee next week and have to be off of it 3 days before surgery.
I want to drop down to .25 tomorrow.
how did you feel when you went down to that dose?
I feared for SO long dropping from 4mg to 2mg that I can kick myself now.
I tried to once, but because of my sensitivity to everything in my life, I became so anxious and went back to the 4mg for month.
so my fear was wrong. The drop from 2gm to half of that strip went smoothly.
I know everyone is different, so I keep this in mind. I didn't feel anything physically.
I want to drop again tomorrow. I am praying I don't feel anything I can't handle. and then drop in four days down to maybe zero.
how long did you stay on the .25 mg dosage before you dropped, if you dropped yet?
hope you get this message.

He Link...

So you have been very comfortable getting down to 1mg? That's good.. I would go to 0.75, then 0.5 then 0.25 then 0.125 then 0.06 (You need the films to do this part - if you don't already have them)

Exercise - I mean hard exercise, will help you Tremendously when you are down at this level and getting lower..
