Hello to everyone I have missed.

I'm happy to say I'm feeling well enough to be here with you all. I have truly missed being here and greeting our new people. My best to all of you.

I've been an addict of some sort most of my adult life and have been on Suboxone going on four years. I tapered down to two to four milligrams a day for the last two years and it was way to soon for me. I made myself sick trying to break away too soon. This is just for me as we are all different in our make up and in our recovery. I'm now up to sixteen milligrams and doing much better. My doctor says we will do a slow taper and I will follow his directions and not mine. I didn't know this, but it can take up to ten years of having cravings after a withdrawal from Suboxone or any other drug. I'll have twenty years this coming August without a drink of alcohol, and still think of a cold beer every now and then. It's short lived, but it happens. I'm sharing this with you so you will be aware of the unknown chemistry of the brain.

Welcome to all of you as I welcome myself back.

Yours in the struggle,
Barbara

Welcome back Barbara
It is good to have you back. I will admit that I was so worried about you.
It is true about the cravings in some people, I know that my sister has been in recovery from addiction since 1995 and she still suffers from cravings from time to time, some days they aren't so bad
but on other days they are much worse
I can never say enough how proud I am of her.
Just as I am proud of you. It would have been easy for you to come back on here and not say anything about your experience. Your willingness to share with us so that your experience may help someone else is admirable.
Remember to take it slow and easy this time, do what you know is right.
Again, welcome back!
Yours in recovery,
Dee

Dee,

You are great and I do hope this has helped someone, somehow. You never know why things happen at the time, but it makes perfect sense later on.

Again, I want to welcome the new people and the ones who have been here for a while. Let me say how important it is to share yourself. The reward is far greater than the silence. I'd love to hear from any of you who are having a hard time. A story told is a story that gets lighter. Believe me I found out the hard way.

Love to you all,
Barbara
