u need to have strong head and get off them urself, the drugs they give u to get off them are just as addicting. Good luck!

I'm the same way , have had two neck surgeries from a car acc. Been through six years of hell with pills, that turned to heroin the last year and half, been clean for over 110 days other than suboxone , I take the strips, get 3- half a day but only take one per day, it saved my life, and to the idiots who make smart ass comments. They don't have a clue, I never took a pill in my life until the car acc.my doc never told me the 180 Roxi 30s he prescribed were addictive, but I have learned the hard way, I would recommend suboxone to anyone who is serious about wanting to change their life for the better

Suboxone is the greatest thing to ever hit the steers of America, if Ppl would just use it correctly , it would stop most crime in small town America , and if they would make it a little more affordable, with the doc visit , and script, it costs me roughly around 900.00 per month. But by far much less money than I was spending before , 3000.00to 3500.00 per month, on pills and heroin

Thanks!! I'm doing a lot better and I have stayed in the subs and starting to feel much better! Still don't have much energy and I catch myself thinking if I could just do 1 more I could get things done around the house and that's the hardest part :(

And don't let Ppl tell u that u are still using, because that couldn't be further from the truth, pol tried to tell me that, just ask ur doc, I'm thankful for suboxone, I've lost everything I had, but now getting a few nice things back, but long way to go to get back where I was, but it will happen, the longer I'm clean (112) days, I look back and can't believe some of the things I did to get $$, plus sold my guns, 4 wheeler, all of it, just for dope, crazy ain't it, if I have to take a half the rest of my life, I WIILL, to stay clean

Thanks, for being a little more understanding, 6 years ago I called Ppl pos for being addicted , and that will never happen to me, well 6 years later here I am, like I said I never took a pill in my life until the car acc and surg. From pills to heroin to losing everything, to now starting over, not be rude or whatever, Ppl that have never had to go through withdrawal , that was the worst thing in the world, and went through it 40 to 50 times, or until I found something to make it stop, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy!!

well lulu i was reading your old posts and was just wondering how you are doing? its hard to commit to a big change like that(and scary) especially with little support and people telling you your still using. thats bullshit. you are getting help and thats good. i hope you are still clean and if not i hope you try again to get that way. if you get a chance please let us know.

Yes I am still doing very well!! I feel great and doing everything my Dr has asked me to do. Thank you for asking I have cut off any communication with anyone that is still using because if they can not support my decision them they were never a friend! I hope I never go back to taking the pills but I know there is always a chance but I'm a strong person am I'm sure I can stay strong!!
