I was on Sub for 3 years off for 1 year. Lapsed about 20 times in 1 year, but never Re-lapsed fully into daily use. I was having such anxiety as my drug of choice is readily available here where I live. Knowing I could get high in 1 minute and constantly having to fight against this feeling, caused most of the anxiety. About a month and a half ago I went back on a small dose of Suboxone 1-2 mg per day. Instantly I have no cravings-to the point where i have been around easy access and didn't even think about using for one second. I have no anxiety, sleeping well, and feel great. However, I know what I went through when I stopped last time. How long can I stay on the Sub without having drawn out WD. I know I will have some, but I don't want the 2 months of no sleep and anxiety. I plan on staying on fro 6 months. Thanks

Hi Subsavedme,

Why don't you just stay on a low dose of Suboxone? The last time you got off, things didn't go so well. You had 20 slips and every one of those could have resulted in serious repercussions.

I know you don't wanna go through wd again from Suboxone, but do you want to slip 20 times again? Know what I mean?

I'm not trying to be mean or anything, I'm just trying to give you my honest opinion.
