I am a 36 year old Mom and Special Education Teacher with two beautiful daughters, a wonderful husband and a second chance to start a new life with my family, (a chance I seemed willing to throw away back then). I quit taking Oxycontin on March 19, 2007. I quit a 500
[More] mg daily habit by using Suboxone and more importantly, THIS FORUM.. I used a long taper and because of previous unsuccessful back surgeries, I plan on taking the current dose indefinitely. Some people may say that is no different, but me, my body, my wallet, and my family will beg to differ. I now take 2mg every three days. I never want anything else - never crave the other. Most of the time I forget to take the Suboxone and end up later with little w/d symptoms and then remember. A far cry from waking up, snorting 80mg of Oxycontin before brushing my teeth and spending over $4000 a month illegally. Now I spend $30 every other month :0) !! It has almost been a year and I have to say it is the hardest thing I've ever had to overcome - and will continue to overcome each and every day......but if I can do it, ANYONE can. It is something I am so very proud and amazed to have come through in one piece!!! The friends I made while here are in my heart forever. They stuck through it all with me - better or worse!!! I love you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
