90 days off methadone!

This is the day I've been waiting for. I didn't even get a 30 or 60 day chip in my meetings. Everyone I know says that methadone is a 90 detox adventure. Now if I want more energy I have to start working out harder. I think back at my insanity and thank you for your patience. I give a great deal of credit to those of you who have hung around to keep this forum alive. Sure, I did it, but so did you. If there's anyone out there looking for hope that never dies, you found it here. God bless you, every ONE!

For those coming off methadone, I want to re-word that. The detox was less than a month, I've been feeling good for a while, the 100% return of energy is what took so long. I'm accomplishing more in a day than I did in a week on drugs.

Hey there weaver, congrats on your recovery! Now it's my turn, I am not going the Suboxone route though, I am now at 20mgs and dropping 1mg/week, going to go right down to 0, I know it is going to be hard but so far so good.

Thanks for the support. Wish I could have tapered. I still think that's the best way. I may have been able to do it if I had been on this forum when I tapered. I went on the sub program right when I learned about this wonderful resource. Contrats on making it down to 20mg, that's impressive. I'm cheering for you. Having that stuff out of my system really opened my eyes. Life is so much better.

Glad you got off the subs. Yeah, subs are weird how they go in waves like that. A lot of people feel that. It's been 63 days since I jumped off the subs. It was very helpful, but I'm glad it's gone. You can tell how high they make you when you stop taking them. The full range of emotions return. Thanks for the support and helping me keep going. I really believe that addiction is an I thing and recovery is a WE thing. I'm so glad we made it.

Thanks again, old and new. My addiction continues to make me doubt my usefulness. Your comments mean a lot to me. I was so very close to death so many time and now I'm full of life. I couldn't complete a thought and now I'm getting A's in college. THE FOG DOES GO AWAY!!!
