subs addiction daily "feed" so it doesn't seek out other vices. anybody experience this?

Def not in my case.. I am a poker player and have prob played more since I have been on sub. Although I think being a poker player is totally different than feeding your money into a slot machine, it is still gambling. I think the thrill helps fill the void of my past drug use. Def an interesting topic for all the gamblers out there. I am glad it helped slow you down though!

I haven't been much of a gambler myself, but Suboxone has def curbed my other obsessions. People here also often say that it has curbed their drinking as well.

There's an interesting article about Naltrexone & gambling. Given that both Suboxone and Naltrexone plug up your opioid receptors, they might have a similar action on gambling?

I wouldn't recommend trying it though if you're already on Suboxone! :lol:
