I think what these very experienced people are trying to tell you is...you sound like you are possibly under estimating the seriousness of this disease. Six month stint or not, addiction is not something to be toyed with and taking care of the withdrawal symptoms may or may not do the trick. We thought my son would be fine once he got clean after using for 4 or 5 months. Guess what? Not the case... he was in college and managed to finish the year with a 3.6 but was using again before he even made it home. For most people addiction has absolutely nothing to do with will power or being weak...it is a disease that rears it's ugly head when you least suspect it or when you get your guard down. I suggest you get into some kind of treatment plan, that may mean seeing a therapist, talking to someone at your church or attending a 12 step meeting of some sort but just getting Suboxone and getting on with it really may not be enough.
