PLEASE, i need suboxone stories being pressured into it

My mother, soon to be x wife, father, uncle.
All are trying to push me into a sub clinic cause thry think its a cure. They are not listening to me, and all the things I'm trying to xplain to them from the thousands of hours of research ive do e. They afe only listening to the Drs and nurses answering the phones at the clinic who are telling them that quitting the current mefs I'm on is all but impossible, and suboxone will fix me.
I have tried explaining till I was blue in the face why sub scarrs the hell outta me. Now am I doin great right now? No. Am I eventually gonna end up on sub? Possibly.
But for now, please share your stories so I can make her understand why I'm reluctant

You are posting all over the place. We have shared Suboxone stories with you for 6 months. Please go back and read your posts. I am not going to sit her and type all over again and have you ignore it the way you do every other post. We're at this again....over and over and over. Make up your mind--your time is seriously running out.

Yep...IBK is right.

Like I told you on the other thread you just posted...until you make the changes you need to...and REALLY put your mind to getting clean..it won't happen.

Sub is an excellent tool for SOME people, in SOME circumstances.  It is way overprescribed, often trading a mush lessor addiction for a greater one.  It's most certainly not a "cure".

If you're going to spend the money on Subs, why not look into inpatient, as we've all suggested?  Just more tail chasing...that's all you're doing.

Ok  im sorry i posted  
Wow what a morning. IB kleen, im not posting all over the place. The 2 Different post have absolutely nothing to do with each other. This 1 I was simply looking for storys to share with my family about why sub scares me. The other post was to share the facts (not stories) that Ive learned with others who are asking.

I'm not asking what u think I shud do. I already know what u think I shud do.
And with all do respect, if ur sick of posting with/for me......then don't. I wud think by now its obvious that I'm not going to rehab.
I keep hearing how suboxone is only good for SOME people. Well so is rehab and na and 12 step things. Why do u think I do so much online. As a general rule, I usually don't like many people. I don't like sharing my feelings with others, especially in person. So I certainly wudnt like some group therapy session

And awhile back I was critisized fir "using" this website and "not ever helping others" and always making things only about me.

Well here I am trying to post something to help others and still I am critisized.

I'm sorry. I was rude. But this is exactly like any conversation I have with my wife or mother. Everyone only hears what they want to. Never what I am actually saying

Wait, I have to interject. You say people only hear what they want and not what you say? Thats not true, Not at least here! We have all "heard" what you are saying and we have all tried to give you advice but you dont want help. Even these 2 posts you posted are just ways for you to justify WHY subs wont work for you. (and maybe they arent but regardless) YOu seem to justify everything, your drug use, why you smoke, why you cant stop, why rehab, subs, methadone, AA, aftercare wont work for you. You have no accountability here and all I see and hear from you are excuses. We have all tried to help you, MANY times but its like beating a dead horse. AA asks, are you willing to do whatever it takes to get sober?? Well are you??

Teresa, neither of these two posts were about asking for help. And I believe my EXACT words were why subs scared the hell out of me. NIT why they wudnt work for me. And I even went on to say "will I eventually end up on them? Maybe"

Hey this is gtowngirl...so I'm guessing u told yr family and they want u to get on suboxin? I think u should actually take the advice that has been givin to u over and over and Get SOME FREAKIN HELP THAT U NEED. YOU HAVE TRIED TAPERING, NOT SMOKING IT,blah blah.  AND can't you see U JUST CAN'T DO THIS BY YOUR SELF? ITS TIME U GRAB YOUR BALL SACK AND BE THE KIND OF FATHER TO YOUR SON THAT I KNOW YOU COULD BE AND WANT TO BE. I'M NOT SAYING YOUR A BAD FATHER AT ALL, I PROMISE THAT I AM NOT GOING TO JUDGE U, BUT AS PARENTS WE HAVE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE, AND U DON'T WANT HIM HAVING HIS MEMORIES OF HIS CHILDHOOD AND DADDY BEING "SICK" ALL THE TIME, RIGHT?  SO STOP DOING THE SAME ADDICTION BEHAVIOR AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS...DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR ADDICTION AND LET YOUR FAMILY HELP YOU. YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL U HAVE SUPPORT FROM YR FAMILY. STOP LYING TO YOURSELF AND FACE WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU 18MO. AGO AND FIGHT IT. YOU NEED HELP, TAKE THE HELP FROM YOUR FAMILY. YOUR RIGHT ITS NOT A CURE BUT IT WILL GET U TO STOP your SMOKING ROUTINE AND LET U FOCUS ON YOUR RECOVERY AND LEARN coping skills TO COPE WITH YOUR PAIN INSTEAD OF PUshing it down with that thick smoke u think you love so much. You can do this....its TIME NOW... I'm here and I did reply to your PM, can u read what I said and PM me back. Asap...Angels be with you

At this point, I'd do it. What else are you going to do?

Online isn't going to get you clean,or keep you clean, it just isn't.  You may not like people, that's fine...but you have to seek help somewhere.  Unfortunately, people will be involved, so you just have to deal with that.    

Subs or Methadone aren't going to be enough, not unless you're in intensive OP therapy, like 5 days a week, and then some...and still, you would have to get off those too.  For some chronic relapsers, Sub can be a godsend...I don't think it would help you.  You aren't "there" yet...you have too many excuses as to why different things aren't for you.

If you had a advanced stage cancerous tumor that was going to kill you, would you say that the surgery to remove the tumor, and chemo "wasn't for you", but MAYBE look into radiation?  Of course not...you would do whatever it took to get yourself well, to survive.  This is no different.

Ok, I really do want the best for you and I pray that you will find the help you need and that when you do you will open yourself to it and not fight it.

Please stay strong and keep an open mind :) SUnny

I am confused you just posted that you were scared to use suboxone and wanted more information about it then you posted information you yourself gathered defending subs. Which is it either you want to use it and need treatment advice or your being pressured into it and don't want to use it. Can't help you out unless we know what YOUR fears and reasons not wanting to use it are..

And you my friend only hear what you want to hear.

Maybe sub would be a good thing for you.  Find a clinic that also requires counseling while on sub.  I think this would be much better for you than taking all the pills you do.

Please tell your family that Sub is not a cure and it won't fix you. YOU will fix you!   I do think Sub is a good choice for you and could get you off all the other meds. It's not forever though so its always smart to work on a recovery program of some kind. You can design your own plan and do what you know will work for you and your personality.  

I know this has become a nightmare for you and I know you want it in the past. I really think taking Sub would be a step forward for you and I support it. I'm anxious to hear how you respond to it so stay in touch!

It sounds to me like everyone is trying to say that going with subs is probably the better option for you at this point, rather than trying to quit on your own or go CT since those methods have not worked for you in the past.   The subs help keep you from physically relapsing, but not emotionally or mentally. The subs will help you with withdraw but not help you get to the real source of why you keep using.

Hi Beyond...glad to see you are *beginning to look at options other than doing it yourself, or at least talking about them....just remember to keep an open mind...sometimes it's trial and error. Remember, you have to put in the work to get clean..whatever that work my be
