Thank you! I am going to be starting Saturday. I have been reading alot of old posted on here and am trying to prepare myself for it, I have to admitt I am scared to death. I have had to take pain meds off and on for years due to endomitriosis and that makes me feel like I am in labor...but I am ready to get off of the meds and hopefully find a new way to deal with my pain. Thanx again I am greatful for any info and the support

Fear is normal. I went through that. I think I made way to big a deal out of it. Mostly because I wasn't sure what life would be like off the meds. The truth is it felt like I had the flu for a good 3 days,,then slowly my natural energy came back and I became excited about a new life...hope it's the same for you....are you preparing your supplies?

While you are still clear headed and planning for Saturday, read the Thomas Recipe and Amino Acid Protocol. I started taking what I could find and felt was good for Me a week before I started and it cut the withdrawal down considerably. Everyone on drugs or alcohol is malnourished in some way. Understanding addiction and withdrawal helps, but I think it helps to know what is going on physically in your brain and body as well. I feel it makes me more patient with myself. You will need every possible resource at you disposal come Monday or so. Good luck and keep us posted.

Hi everyone, I am new here.  I have to say....reading this blog has made me decide to FINALLYask for Suboxone.  I'm just tired of the life that comes with being an addict.  I'm a great person, I feel I'm good looking.  I have a good job and I work hard.  I've raised a good family and by God I can beat this.  I'm tired of letting it kick my a-- but I have let it for years.  It's so funny that when your an addict your preception of time is off so much.  I have always said.."Well I've only done this for a few years".  My husband told me last night that my "few years" has been 20!!!  He has stuck with me through it all and it has been very dark sometimes even though I am a mastor of manipulation and I can make something seem great.  Nobody believes my crap anymore.  It's not good.  I have epilepsy and it scares me because I have a benzo addiction also.  I am also a recovering alcoholic.  I have not had a drink since Jan 1, 2009.  I just trading one for another.  Please send some prayers my way.  I need them.

This is easy to say, but really, don't worry about the detox, or life without pills. I did...I knew for months prior to actually detoxing that I had to stop; I'd toss and turn at night, scared to death about not having my pills, about the hell of detox. Night after night. And when it came time to detox, well, it was difficult, but not even close to what I'd imagined. And as far as living without pills, it's great. I've been clean for six months and am enjoying every day, good or bad. I wonder sometimes why I didn't do this sooner.
So, don't let your imagination run wild; and congrats on deciding to do this. Keep posting. We're here to help.

I wish you all so much peach and serenity during the time you choose to go through this.  Suboxone was really the easy way out for me but I have an addictive personality so I have been trading one for another since I was 16.  That's hard to swallow when I say it out loud but I have faced it truthfully now and I'm so sick of the "seeking" worrying about working, sleeping, forcusing..... This Suboxone 1/4 of a strip twice a day has changed my life.  I'm no longer in a fog.  I feel normal but I'm still scared that I could fail.  If I do, I will pick it back up and try again.  That's all we can do.  I had a friend who lost her 15 year old daughter last night to a Herion OD while the parents where home at this so called party.  She may have experimented a little but the shot her up and she was put on a couch where she died.  They partied around her for two hours before anybody knew.  Her own mother was there and she is an addict too.  I was sick phycially.  I feel like I'm coming out of a long fog and my memory especially since I'm epileptic is really messing with me.  My seizure drugs affect my motor skills, memory etc....My Neurologist is handling the Suboxone because I'm scared of the seizures.  I would love to hear some feedback on depression.  I have taken ALL OF THE TRASH out of my life, changed my number so I won't let my family or myself (more importantly) down.  I can't, but I'm still scared.
