I know there are people who feel that Suboxone is a negative alternative to getting and staying sober but i have full faith in the use of this medication, if used properly. Just like everyone else, I too have a story and to make a long story short, I am a recovering addict and i just celebrated my 2 years clean! I was a mother of 3 and wife to a wonderful man and my life was picture perfect to the outside world. However, what nobody saw was the chains that opiates had on me for 5 years. I was taking lethal doses on a daily basis, it's by the grace of God that i'm here today. I checked myself into a rehab facility and my mission was to get started on a regimen of medication that would help me through my withdrawls as well as depression and anxiety. So i was discharged after being there a little over a week and i have been taking Suboxone (along with depression med) for 2 years so far and i know i still have years to go before i can completely wean myself off but i have absolutely NO REGRETS. Suboxone does not get me high, it is my backup plan. If i have to take it in order to stay clean then i will take it every day of my life. I wouldnt be where i am today without suboxone and my entire family agrees with my plan. Honey, please get help for yourself because i know where you are and i know that you arent living your life to its fullest. I know how unhappy this disease makes you. Its okay to ask for help, this isnt something that I could do on my own and I would have never been successful without help. Go get yourself some help and start living your life! Please keep my address, I will be here for your support. RHONDAView Thread
