I am trying to keep this all in perspective, but currently it is difficult. Wonderful Doctor, and an even better medicine. This has been a wonderful day. I just hope this continues to work the way it started. Like most of you started on two doses of
8 mg/ day. Started by taking 4 mg in office, nothing really noticable, but after adding another 4 mg one hour later, it really kicked in. Not really what I would consider a high. But, no desire to use, in my case, obsess!! My internal demons have been knocked on thier ass! One day at a time, and tonite as I prepare to sleep, honestly looking forward to tomorrow with hope that I have not had for a long time. I wanted to write something different than everyone else, but this kinda sounds familiar, doesn't it? Bring it on!!

God Bless

I'm so glad you're doing well! It's a great first step isn't it? A huge and wonderful first step and removes us from the vicious cycle of active addiction. I just wanted to say WELCOME to your addiction remission!

I don't think I will ever forget how that first dose of suboxone really felt. My doctor, who tends to do things differently, did NOT have me inducted in the office. He wrote my prescription and sent me on my way. He told me to take a single 8mg tablet and let it slowly dissolve under my tongue then don't take anything more for at least 8 hours.

To be perfectly honest, that first dose got me high as a kite :lol:

And while I certainly enjoyed how it made me feel, there was a little bit of concern lingering under the surface, because I wasn't sure if this was going to be a good thing for me if my new medication was going to make me feel "high" all the time.

But within a day or two I realized that I was no longer getting any kind of euphoria from the drug and, in fact, just felt......."normal" for the first time in months, or maybe even years.

And I'm glad it turned out that way. I'm glad this drug is different from Methadone in that way. And I'm not knocking Methadone, but knowing myself, I'd probably end up abusing methadone.

Anyway, WELCOME TO YOUR LIFE!

I am really glad to hear you are doing so great! It is nice to actually look forward to the next day. I remember not wanting to go to sleep because I dreaded starting all over again the next day in the vicious cycle I was in. Congratulations. You never have to be in "active addiction" again. Enjoy your new life!

Congrats on a successful induction. For me every day is like the first day of taking Sub - except it only gets better. Yes, life does show up but that's okay, I don't have to pick up when it does. When life does show up my first thoughts aren't about using. It's nice to sit back and take a deep breath and realize the fight is over. :roll: For me it was a major weight lifted off my shoulders. You know now that I have been around the forum a little bit, I have noticed something really cool... It's so awesome to see someone post that is in active addiction seeking recovery and then see the complete turnaround after induction. At least for most people I must add. For me in the program it took months and months to get this which wasn't a bad thing either. Suboxone is such a wonderful tool to give you a major kick start in recover. Well, it's nice to hear another successful induction. Keep us updated on your status!! SuperBuper

I will try and start telling my story in the My Story part of the forum. Otherwise, I am moving on from this intro phase, thank you to all those who were so kind to respond to my fears, Interesting thing is fears.......the abscence of drug fear and obsession has left a hole inside of me, presently I am filling it with everything except drugs!! But, alot of recovery ahead, least the horizon is brighter this time around, hope it will stay that way.
