I need some help (info)

Hey everyone,

I'm new on here and i have finally came out and have given up my addiction and im done with hiding it and i have a dr appointment tomorrow to do some suboxone treatment and to be honest with you im pretty excited because i just want my life back. Im tired of being addicted to these pills, honestly.

I just want to be able to sleep and wake up without feeling like **** or not being able to function, or have to take some pills to feel normal.

I've tried doing it cold turkey and i just cant do it, So i was curious what I should expect and what i have ahead of me. I know it's not going to be easy, but anything's gotta be easier than dealing with this crap. Im so over it.

I was taking whatever i could to get by and to not feel like crap.
I"m very embarrassed to admit i had a problem but it really feels good to see im not alone. Im starting to feel stronger just for admitting my problem to my family as they werent stupid and were suspecting something too.

anyways, if anyone can please give me some information or help i would TRUELY apreciate it!

thanks guys

Re: I need some help (info)

I sounded so much like you a few months ago. The medication is wonderful. I am on it for a few months already and my doc wants me to lower my dose each time and come off, but then I start craving. I would come off it when my body feels ready. I had no withdrawal symptoms when going on the medication. Make sure you take it 12-24 hours after your last drug use. You have to be in mild withdrawal. Good Luck!
