  1. im starting this process on wednesday and i have somequestions that maybe some of you could answer. I dont want to but if my herion w/d gets so bad is it a terrible thing to get high maybe 2 more times to keep myslef well until i get the prescription. Im doing this all bymyself but im doing it for myself no one in my family knows i use herion and none of my friends know i use herion so of course they dont know im tryin to get off. im coming into this blind and the funny part is i learned of this medication in a crackhouse from a girl with a needle hanging out of her arm. going by what she said i was like yes if its as good as she says then it will work for me so i contacted my doctor who also had not a bad thing to say he said he has no problem giving it to me. i have no desire to use as it is i just use to stay well but maybe someone can better clarify the whole process to me and give me advice on the process i will keep you all updated on my progress as it will give me something to do during the times im usally out tryin to score herion. please help me with any info or expericences you may have:(

    Sorry I didnt see this yesterday. So tomorrow is the big day?

    Yes, please do keep us posted on your progress. I am always anxious to read how well others are doing on the Sub/bup.

    You are in the right place if you care to read about others experiences with it.......good luck, hope to see you often.

    Supreme, today is the day, right? Please let us know how you are doing. It is soo hard to do this alone, and I am in the same place as you - friends, family, nobody knows about my addiction or my detox. I'm day 8 in detox now, and doing great. You can do it too. This board has REALLY helped me, especially with info on the suboxone, and of course, the support. Hope to hear from you soon!!

    supreme: I am glad the subox is working for you. It's a miracle, isn't it?? Especially the no cravings part, it's like it gives you so much free time when you don't have to be scheming to get drugs. (Hey, is that how you got your name, LOL?)
    I'm day 9 with no hydrocodone and down to almost NO subox. It works, so keep us posted as to how you are doing. I'll be thinking about you! What are you going to do with your new free time? I'm still working on that one, lol!

  6. well today is day 3 on the bupe and day like 5 clean total im doing great, feeling great but almost let an old friend talk me into messing up today luckly i didnt i wasnt gonna do the evil H i was gonna do some coke. of course sniffing wouldnt be enough, and neither would smoking so that would only leave one method of adminstering it to myself. take a guess. but I didnt do it im so proud. this is gonna be so hard for me and i realised this today because i wasnt exactly ready to quit but i was. hard to explain but as we all know these drugs and what the do to our brains are weird things thanks for everyones support and like i said everything is going great as a matter of fact i have a 8mg bupe under my tounge as i type weird huh well hope to hear from someone soon :D

    Hey there,
    I have been taking the suboxone for 6 months , started out taking two
    8ms a day , now i am down to a half of a 8mg , I have even been able to
    just take a quater of a 8mg with not much of a problem.
    I go to see the doc tommorow .
    I was addicted to 3 oxy 80's a day when i went to the doc for help, back in augest. during the last six months i have felt really good , no depression or obessions to use.
    Withen 3 months i should be off the sub.

    Supreme: you did good!!! those temptations come in all different forms, and you should be very proud you didn't give in to it!!! I think you are very strong. I am not so strong, but I am sooo glad the bupe is working for you.
    I know that we all need a "scheme" for staying clean once the physical detox is over, that is where I am tonight. Hope you are doing OK, please check in and let us know!!!
