I measured my doses and cut them from an 8mg pill with a razor blade.

er, um not hard to do.

Cut an 8 mg into 6 pieces and you get 6 1.3mg pieces. halve these 1.3 pieces with a razor blade and you get .65mg pieces.

it's not difficult to do at all.

I did a 10 day taper, it worked wonderfully for me. it is my humble opinion that one needs to induct oneself at the lowest possible effective dose. It is my humble opinion that a vast number of people can successfully induct under 8mg, under 6 mg, under 4mg. That is my humble opinion, but everyone needs to make their own decisions. There seems to be a large percentage of posters here who disagree with me on this point, and that's fine. I'm not ever going to argue about it. but i am going to post my opinions.

But I can tell you that i felt no uncomfortableness. NONE.

I could not control opiates, not at all. In contrast I was able to control my use of Suboxone. A truly liberating feeling.

It's so enjoyable to be out of the life. I hated that life. I hated everything about that life.

i am so happy. I am very much looking towards my future.

I'm not cocky, i still am afraid of the desperation of my old using life.

I was sooooo sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Can you fathom how nice it is to smile again.?? Can you.

So its been a week Suboxone free, and two plus weeks opiate free. All I can say is wow. Had the neighborhood kids over for a whiffle Ball game this evening, then grilled pork chops on the grill.

Life is so much better. Life is so much easier.

I have a future. I have a future. I have a future.

And now I have a life.

It's AMAZING what can happen in a week's time. I feel like I walked through door, like my eyes have become uncovered. I get such joy out of the smallest of things, the laughter of m 7 year old son, the smell of my freshly cut yard.

I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT SUBOXONE. Suboxone gave me the ability to step outside my addiction and see myself in all my hideously ugly addiction that was my addict life. I am sickened, shamed, and scared that I lived that way. I didn't use today, I didn't want to use today. I will try to do it again tomorrow.

As far as WD, I felt no acute symptoms at all. No real cravings yet either, though I know they will come. I just have to say that I love my 'new' sober life so very much. I am humbled to be able to live it sober, i am thankful to live it sober, I am so very happy to be sober.

There are a variety of ways Suboxone can help someone. I chose my path, I chose an active role and plan of my recovery. Suboxone is a tremendous help to so many people. And again, Suboxone can be utilized in a myriad ways.

I wish you folks the best. I wish you freedom and sobriety.

Chris
thanks for responding about how you measured your dose. I know it will help others down the road. Congrats on your success. I had one quick question...did you take your dose the same time every day and at what time? Again great job many say this is not a one size fits all but it seemed to have worked for you. Please let us kow how you continue to do. Congrats on being sober.

Jim

Yes I normally took my dose upon waking, as it was certainly on my mind a lot at that point, and took all the pressure off for the entire day.

Ithis method worked well for me.
