WOW I COULDE'NT OF SAID IT BETTER!` you know im so new in my recovery but hey let me tell you i havent went 7 days without shooting 2 to 6 oxys A DAY! for over a years untill 7 days ago let me tell you I have no urges! no cravings to shoot dope! iTS AMAZING!` and as far as do i miss shooting dope! ..... well i must not that much because if i missed it that much its so easy for me to get i would of already relapsed!~BUT I KNOW THIS TIME IM DONE! EVERYOTHER TIME I QUIT OXY IN THE PAST I WOULD GO THROUGH W/D,S FOR MAYBE 4 DAYS MAX AND THEN GO BACK TO THE "PIN" THIS TIME IS SO MUCH DIFFERENT BUT I WAS IN W/D WHEN I GOT ON THE SUBOXONE 1 HOUR LATER AFTER I DOSED I FELT SO MUCH BETTER SUBOXONE WAS A MIRACLE DRUG FROM THE GET GO FOR ME!~ SO I HAVE HIGH HOPE FOR ME THIS TIME AND HEY ITS MY NEW RECORD AND THIS TIME I WAS HONEST WITH MY FAMILY AS WELL THEY ALL KNOW I WAS SHOOTING DOPE!~ I HAVE MANY PEOPLE BEHIND ME THIS TIME!~ AND I DO LIKE THIS SITE MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE SINCERE!~ i ended up getting some infections ceullites,from dirty needles thank god i dont have heppits c or aids thats what i feard more than anything!~ and as far as the needle(shooting dope) well i was scared of needles when i was a child i would cry and raise hell for every shot i ever got (usallay in my butt cheek as a kid) so i think why i ebjoyed shooting dope was i was getting over my fear plus i got high in the process and i already had the pills ounce i learned how to separate the pill in a spoon and shoot up it was over then i had control of the needle i dont know if that has anything to do with it but!~ hope that answers your questions

Now get your butt and head together. I think you'll go far if you do.
As it's been said before, Suboxone/Subutex is just relief from withdrawal.
At sometime you will have to get off the subs. Taper it as low you can get, then you can perhaps envisage a whole new life drug free.

Much love and encouragement,

Question 8th day clean!~ (AND STILL GOING STRONG)

ITS TUESDAY MARCH 31st (9:53am)



took my suboxone,clonindine & propranolol at 7:46am (i keep a journal of when i take my pills etc.)and i must say i feel great! i feel very refreshed, i have a pill i take for sleeping its called amitriptyline i did eat one of those last night so maybe that has something to do with why i feel so refreshed? anyone know much about amitriptyline? other than that just a normal morning getting ready for work and the day! but today is the first day of tapering my dose of suboxone im going down from=3 8mg a day/ to= 2 and a half a day! (its a slow taper but thats the doctors orders! ok thats it for now i will update when i get home from work!` everyone have a great day and stay sober its just one more day you can count!~
DO IT!~
ITS WORTH IT!~
IVE NEVER FELT BETTER




:ghug STAY SOBER AND FOCUSED ON BETTER DAYS!

Hoping that my olive branch extended in another thread applies here:

My kind of crowd was any kind that would enable my using. Today, my kind of crowd is any that has a few recovering people in a room, working toward the same goal. It's a start.

That said, I know it helps to feel more "a part of" and hope you find that. In the meantime, try to take any good advice you find wherever you find it...just like here.

Glad you are open to AA, too. In my area it's a mixed bag of addicts/alcoholics.

amitriptyline= Elivil (sp) Its an old anti-depressant I have been on it for years.It helps with sleep this will wear off in time and nerve pain.I started it as part of a pain reduction plan.Alot of dr.s use it for sleep because its not addictive however if you take it on an ongoing basis when you stop it takes time to get sleep back to normal

Arrow april 2nd (early april 3rd) mr phreez,s suboxone recovery day 11!

today was a long day (work wise) my 11th day sober and i honestly dont miss "THE OTHER SIDE" im looking at things different! doing better at work!~ (sales are up! LOL) im just saying i dont miss oxy!~ and that is amazing to me!~ when i started my suboxone i would of tried anything at that point i was misserable...w/d,s was brutal! i had a friend who helped me through many of my tough times!~ you have to have support!~ and a program of sum sortA!` and the will to quit using drugs!~ trhats it!A~ its so simple! with me i was unsuccsesfull everytime i tried to quit using oxy!~ (i would stop for max 3 days or so then go right back to the needle!` one of my best friends got clean with suboxone and his habit was just as bad as mine! when i seen that i knew i was getting clean!~ he looked healthy!~ he looked like a new person!~ i wanted to be "that new person" so suboxone and a little support from friends and loved ones might just work for you too?

Hi Tony,

I'm sorry that I haven't been around the last couple of days, they've been busy and now I am fully fledged in withdrawals.
I'm so glad that you're feeling good and that the subuxone is working wonders for you - ....and even gladder that you are starting to taper the subs as well. That's the way to go!! Did you manage to get in a NA meeting, or AA? They will help you tons I'm sure.
Tonight I will look for a meeting on NArecovery.org - perhaps we can talk about it!
How's sleep? I take nothing, as I want to get my sleeping cycle under some sort of normalcy(is that said in English??), but I'm lucky, I don't work - so it's easier for me.

You WILL be that "New person" Tony, you need to want it badly enough. I will cheer you on, all the way.

Take care Sweetie, and hope your day is good.
It's midday here now - I will check on you tonight.

Love always,
Ingrid x
