Re: Does Bupe Help With Most Cravings?

How is life after subs? Are the cravings still gone? It sounds like you're on solid ground. I've tried to answer this a couple of times and had the form crash so I apologize for a shortened answer in advance. The short answer is life is on the upswing and I'm feeling good barring some minor physica...

Re: Does Bupe Help With Most Cravings?

Anytime. Happy to try to help. However, don't feel obligated to respond to my incessant chattering unless it's benefiting you in some manner. Taking care of whatever issues you're having physically/mentally for sure outweigh me tapping on this keyboard or you responding to it. I'm going to assume so...

Re: Is this it? Went Cold Turkey EDIT: This was not it! lol

Here lurking so I might as well update. Closing in on a 4 weeks give or take. Feeling really good at times dealing with irritating issues at others. Another poster is a couple weeks farther removed from my experience and also complaining about chills. So I suspect that long term temp control is a co...

Re: Does Bupe Help With Most Cravings?

Welcome. I saw your initial post but was hoping someone would answer other than me. And someone is likely to check in just not as quickly as most of us addicts would like. When you're in this mess everything is urgent it seems. And rightfully so I suppose. I'm a lurker here for the most part but bec...

Re: Is this it? Went Cold Turkey EDIT: This was not it! lol

3 Weeks!?! I think this will be my last daily update. As mentioned previously I'm into a gradation of change now that isn't always easy to see improvement up close but I'm no longer physically miserable most of the time which is what most people are worried about...... Anyway, I slept well last nigh...

Re: 3rd time back day 1 no subs

I'm good man. I'm still staying exhausted due to lack of sleep, fighting chills still a good bit, and restless just a bit here and there but mostly at night. But nothing specifically is bad enough to stop me from being "functional". I think I'm at 3 weeks? Close enough to call it that. So ...

Re: Chills

It's unfortunate this forum has become sort of dormant. I don't really have an answer for your question I just sympathize with your symptoms and feel compassion for someone else out there with moments of struggle. I hope you get some more helpful answers from someone with experience to answer it for...

Re: Is this it? Went Cold Turkey EDIT: This was not it! lol

Day 20? As with yesterday not a ton to update. It's hard to judge how much, if any, improvement I'm having from day to day at this point. Just the normal ups and downs with this experience that make it hard to see gradation at the micro level given the number of variable symptoms. Certainly no major...

Re: 3rd time back day 1 no subs

No need to apologize man. When existing is a chore strangers on the internet don't register on the obligation meter. If the chills I'm keeping most seconds of the day are any indication this is going to be a symptom that doesn't disappear over night for me. So I sympathize even if mine aren't severe...

It's certainly interesting. You've got my brain itching in curiosity about it anyway. No matter I'll fall down that rabbit hole on my own... Either way, a week is a good start! Glad you aren't suffering symptoms too bad. Even if they come on I doubt you're in for anything terrible in comparison and ...

Day 19? To the point that the updates are probably mostly redundant...at least regularly. I still feel a bit yucky with the same stuff going on as before. Maybe not as bad. Nothing serious anyway. Yesterday was great most of the day though. Nights are going to be an issue for a while. It is what it ...

I sat down to answer last night but the chills had taken their toll for the day and I had to call it a night and get wrapped up. But here I am... day 18? Even earlier... I beat the Sun up today. Not good? Just restless and my brain keeps trying to slip into that go fix this shit mode....So out of th...

Great googly moogly! You didn't go halfway with the commitment! Are you a gambling man? Man did you lay some chips down! Great big elementium type balls! Wow.

Heading into bedtime and still doing well..... but the monsters come out to play in the wee hours. Still early for them yet. But feeling as optimistic as a cynic can get. By far the best day I've had since like day 7 or 8? Just tired and waiting on my internal thermostat to realize we're not going f...

This board isn't terribly active and I'm here so I feel a bit obliged to answer as others have answered me a bit... Having said that I have a couple of questions that might help me (and others) answer you. What dosage of morphine were you on and when did you last take it? If it's making you feel hig...

300 is super low. I take 900 every few hours. ITS what makes sleep easy. If anything taking 600 at bedtime would probably work. I wake up groggy for maybe 20 minutes first time taking it so no tolerance at all yet . It rocks Appreciate the tip. I might give that a try tonight rather than the benzos...

Re: Is this it? Went Cold Turkey EDIT: This was not it! lol

I have a veritable pharmacy at my finger tips... so yes I have Neurotin. I don't have a clue how much of it to take though for withdrawal. I took 300 mg the other night when I got the creepy crawlies and they went away. So I'm not opposed to it I just don't like taking extra shit when I know nothing...
