Mellissa, thanks for posting and updating us. Sorry to hear that you continue to have struggles.

I picked up on the same comment that Amy did. This is s something I've heard people say befor and I just don't get it. Let's for sake of argument say that taking Bup really is "the easy way out" let's just say it us. So what? Do we get extra points for suffering or something? Life is filled with progress. There are all sorts if things made easier by science, technology and discovery. Why not make use of them? Is using a riding lawnmower taking the easy way out over cutting the lawn with a push mower? Is using a computer and CAD software taking the easy way out of designing a house? There are a bazillion examples I could use. For me, I'd rather take the best way - whatever that is. If that is also the easy way, so be it. Again, I just don't see any upside to doing something the hard way. How about doing it the smart way? Again, no extra points that I can see for suffering. Sadly, you seem to be doing some suffering - by your own statements.

I don't at all intent this to be mean. I'm mostly wanting other readers to see another opinion and side to this. If you happen to as well that's even better. My way for opiate recovery is not nessisarrily the best way - only the best way for me. I take a small dose of Bup and live my life as well and likly better than I did prior to opiate addiction nearly ruining it. Am I taking the easy way out? I don't think so but again, let's say I am - I still have my life back, addiction is 5.5 years behind me without a single relapse, hardlY any side effects, on and on. If that's the easy way, I'll take it. Whatever works.

I hope you are able to find some piece from this awefull disease. Keep at it and please keep us updated.
