PostSubject: my introduction   Tue 07 Jul 2009, 2:10 pm

as renee78.... really I'm here because of my doctor.. even though i tell him there's no how, no way I'd ever go back, he says i need this. I've been on suboxone for about 10 months, at first i had a crazy doctor who just let me loose with a huge bottle and let me think i needed 6+ 8 Mg's a day, and now I'm on 2 a day, and I'm fine, no wd's or anything along the way.. I'm not perfect, i have no excuses other than i f'ed up. i was what you call a functioning addict. on the outside at least. I'm glad it's the past, and looking forward to suboxone being the past also. but as you all know it's not that easy. so i continue to suck on these nasty pills....

Hi Renee,
The first think that I want to say to you is that there is nothing wrong with Taking Suboxone to manage your addiction.
I believe with everything that is me, that addiction is a disease and there is no cure. Taking Suboxone is no different than taking insulin for diabetes.
The longer that you are Suboxone the better your chances are for a successful recovery.
once in recovery there are so many things that we need to do. First we need to change everything about us. Who we hang out with, who we talk to on the phone and even where we take walks.
Anything can be your trigger. Learning what your triggers are is as important as taking your medication.
Education is also important in recovery. It is not a matter of will power. If it were none of us here of this forum would be addicted to anything.
I am glad that you have decided to join us. I hope that we can become friends and always know we are here to support you.
Yours in Recovery,

Hi Renee,

It doesn't matter how you got where you are...just that you are alive and doing the best you can to be better in everyway. Yes, I'm tired of dosing everyday, but like Dee said, you do what you have to do in order to get where you want to be. I'm Barbara and have been around for about three years.

I'm so happy you posted and want you to feel welcomed and warmed to stay with us. No matter what you have done, you are safe here with us.

Yours in the struggle,
