Addiction & Recovery board

Quote from kiddo3163:
:confused: I am new to this board, my first post I talked about being on Suboxone, since then I have read so many posts about trying to get off suboxone and having bad withdrawels. This is making me so scared. The reason I went on this was so I wouldnt go through that again. Been through withdrawels so many times I lost count. So since reading the posts I have been trying to wean down slowly. I have only been on it for a week, so I am hoping that I can wean off in a few more days without too much trouble. I am on Suboxone for heroin addiction and before that I was addicted to pills off and on for almost 20 years. With the weaning I have been so sad and feeling so much emotional pain that I had been covering up with the drugs. I lost my 18 year old daughter last August 24th and have not been drug free since then, until now with the suboxone, which I know is not exactly drug free but there is not that high that covers all the hurt inside. I dont want to go back to using but I am so scared of this pain I feel inside. It's awful and I miss my daughter so much it hurts like hell. How can someone deal with such an enormous loss without using. I dont know how to do that yet and have been praying constantly that I can learn to deal with this loss drug free. But, I am petrified that I will go back to using again. Thanks for letting me vent, any help is greatly appreciated.
