    Burkie-
    You doing OK? I wouldn't say that Sub blocks only at certain doses, but I would say that it blocks BETTER at certain doses.
    Since bupe is an agonist/antagonist, it'll always block to some extent. Whatcha thinking about? And I'll try to help...

    Burkie-
    Isn't it amazing.....Boy, talk about fighting ourselves,huh?
    Been there, done that. I think the #'s you thru out are pretty accurate, well maybe a teeny bit on the low side. 8,10, 12 range, you oughta be good. But, let's figure out a way, (in addition) to Sub dose to help you abstain? Please don't think that I'm not acknowledging that progress is progress. Stopping the crap, and getting on Sub, is damn good progress in my book.

    Lemme take a different tact with you.
    Is there any way to put some roadblocks between you and dope?
    In my opinion Burkie, relying TOO much on Sub to abstain (or attempt to do so) is absolutely playing with fire. I think that your sitch has all the makings of overdose.
    You sound (pls. correct me if I'm wrong) like you expect that you're gonna use? Is that true? I do appreciate the mental goings on with this cuz I've been there. But you gotta make a decision here kiddo....If you were on 10-12 mgs. of Sub, are you telling me that you could therefore stay away from dope?
    If that's what you're saying, then I'd say get on 10-12 mgs. Sub, get stable, get the other pieces of your recovery in place and then worry about getting off the Sub (maybe naltrexone short-term?) Your thoughts? Mic

    i suppose in a way i do feel like at some point i might use again, its not that i want too now, if i did i would just buy some, but i keep on messing up, if its 4 days without or 4 months i seem to be fine one day and for some reason cave the next, i have been on herion since i was 12 and im 23 now i cant remember the feeling of just being normal i have nothing to compare it to, so much of my life was taken up by that sh*t that im not sure how i can never smoke it again ever.. its hard just to try and come to terms with that.. let alone the other stuff, to be honest i dont no what im thinking myself all i do no is i want a better life than the one i am leading now. and i cant put distance between me and drugs because people score outside my house and at the shops at the bottem of the road, i go to get the bus to work and there's people scoring there too, i cant control that part, but i have told my dealer im on blockers and i cant use so dont even bother coming to me again or i tell my brothers, so i dont think he will come to me again now hopefully.
