1st r u getting it from the doctor?How much r u taking?I know many with personal experience with subs will be along shortly.I do know a SLLOOOWWW taper is the key to getting off subs with minimal w/d.Also to get down to the smallest amount possible before u quit completely(Ive heard the smallest slivers of sub being taken at the end and that seems to make a difference bigtime in w/d.Im just curious how do u know everyone will freak out,ur husband will take ur kids etc(I dnt c how getting off something u r prescibed if u r would get him custody btw)but I dnt know the backround.I assume ur on subs because u got off some opiate?I really dnt understand why anyone would get mad if this is the case.U used a med that is used to get off potentially much more harmful drugs.Now u want to quit that.maybe im crazy though.can u share more of ur story

Okay I might not be helping just causing a whole lot more questions.  I was taking a pretty large amount of opiates.  Stopped cold turkey, it's been 11 days, I seen my doctor and he wants me to go on suboxone.  He said it is a "blocker" and not a synthetic drug like methadone?  Can anyone clear this up?  

That being said, if you want help getting off anything please do it with a doctors advice.  If you are buying off the streets, still see a doctor and get some help.  Like the above post suggests you are taking this for a reason.  Wanting to stop is the first step.  There are a lot of very experienced people on here willing to help you out.   Stay with us and ask lots of questions.

No I don't see a MD. And I'm taking a lot ... it is different  every day I take a pice when I get up and then a pice before my kids come home from school then i take one if my kids r driving me up the wall then before bed but it realy depends on the day I'm having ...and as far as my husband goes oh you have know idea I'm a stay at home mom and my husband is very old fashion
He works and I must take care of him and the kids and home don't want him to sound like a bad man because he is a hard working man and most of all he is a loving wonderful father I love him so much my family is every thing to me.

I started taking Vic's when I was 8mo pregnant from my DR. Because of my nerve in my lower back and I continued to get them for after I had my baby that was 7 years ago my back was so bad I could not walk and the Vic's helped my back and they helped me be super mom and wife , friend , every thing I could do it all and still be happy so then my DR just stopped my pills one day and I was spending so much money buying them for 3 years then found out about sub's and they did the same thing and the hole thing just starts all over...

Well I think that they are the same thing blocker or not they are both additive
And if you stoped for 11days then you don't want subs they are just like starting another drug and I only say that because I don't know any one that can just stop cold for 11days ...yes they block but trust you will just be starting a hole new ball game but that is solely base on my experience

My husband is the same way...If  im out of commission for one day its like a train wreck with 4 kids lol. I cook, clean, laundry, homework, dog feedings, anything and everything that concerns the house. He works 12 hour days and pays for everything.
When I told him about my addiction he told me to stay home and go through my wd's and I didnt need to leave our kids and go anywhere. He said that if I left I was in no state to take the kids with me. He was right. If he wouldve left me I would be dead by now, without a doubt in my mind. Getting clean is the easy part...I wouldve NEVER been able to do this if I wouldnt have told my husband the truth. You have to have a support system in place for your aftercare. I tried several times to get clean and I couldnt do it alone. It takes changing your entire lifestyle. You have a long road ahead of you if you choose to do this on your own. My advice would honestly be to tell your husband. I got that advice and I (like you) was so sure he would leave me and take my kids. My advice was..If he loves you he will want to help you get better. Hes suppose to be your best friend. If you dont tell him hes going to feel like you didnt trust him enough to tell him the truth. My husband kept telling me "how do you want me to help you" I cant help you unless you want to help yourself. Thats what I understand now. He kept asking me that. How do I help you. I told him just be here for me. I had to do the hard work. I now get what he was asking. Only I could help myself, no one can save you from yourslef unless you save yourself . Thats what you have to do. Be honest and all the rest will fall into place if you really want it to. Best of luck to you.

You have the right to some privacy and lets face it....we are all hard enough on ourselves and we know that many people in our lives, altho we love them , just dont understand addiction is a disease! So what Im saying is that its OK to not let the universe know.....a really bad case of infectious gastro will keep them from getting suspicious hehe
