Life is what you make of it. You can blame everyone and everything (including Suboxone) for your
misery and anger :evil: . I've decided to be responsible for my actions (that included 4 relapses)
and my current sobriety (two and a half years and counting). Suboxone and the 12 step program
have saved my life! You gotta want it baby :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: !

Johnboy,

Yours sounds like one of the best success stories I read here. I too am an alcoholic and it took me over a dozen years to find sobriety. Had to hit the proverbial bottom and actually worked those silly 12 steps. Funny thing, they worked and I stayed sober now for 24 years.

Opiates are another thing. The Sub has given me my life back but I want the life I had before starting pain pills. I haven't forgotten how happy in life I was w/o any drugs or alcohol so I know it can be done. This tapering and w/d will be a long process but after quitting drinking, smoking, loosing 30lbs (like you), quitting opiates, and then again quitting nicotine, (gum) I think I know I can stop bad behaviors. It just sucks to be back in the same place again trying to get off a drug. But at least I can function alright with this Suboxone.

Good job my man! You did it in a short period of time. It took me over 20 years!
