Hi globie, welcome. For how long have you been taking Suboxone? Are you in therapy also?

Here's a link that has a lot of useful information:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=29151

Especially this link - it describes the phases of treatment:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=23809

Please ask questions, again, welcome.

Hi globie, that's good that you're seeing a therapist. Have you talked with him/her about how depressed you are and was there any talk about maybe starting an anti-depressant? Sometimes opiates can mask depression and when people stop full opiates, the depression surfaces.

Do you have any face-to-face support such as family/friends or do you go to any groups like AA or NA? The more support you have, the better.

Hi globie, it's pretty much an individual process when people taper. Some general rules - you have to be ready to taper; go slowly and don't be afraid to go back up if a reduction isn't tolerable; don't overthink it; exercise; make sure you have proper treatment for any depression, anxiety, etc.

This link has taper stories - both good and bad because things can be learned from all stories:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=16678

Hope that helps.

Generally the best way of tapering is slow and steady. If you've got plenty of access then as a suggestion (only, cos I am not a doctor but have personal experience and am tapering myself now) and are in good health then cut your doses down by ten percent a month and you should not feel very uncomfortable. Certainly not 'get sick' as you put it.

Make sure you've got other things in your life straightened out. Especially depression. It's good that you are talking to people now cos keeping secrets makes us ill.

Best wishes

Leo

Hi globie, what dose of Suboxone are you currently taking and for how long have you been on that dose?

Have you been talking about your depression with your therapist? Is this a recent thing that's started?

Hi globie, good to hear your anxiety is getting better. Just make sure you keep talking with your doctor and therapist about that and your depression so you can keep it under control.

Thanks for checking in.

Hi globie, the most important thing about a taper is that you have to be ready to be able to live both addiction free and medication free. The Phases of Treatment link is a good one to read:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=23809

As far as tapering, most people have the best success with a slow taper stabilizing in between reductions. It's different for everyone, so there's not really a 'plan' per se, but it's more about following your body and how you feel. Did you take a look at the taper thread I posted earlier? That has a lot of stories - good and bad - things can be learned from both. Here's the link again in case you need it:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=16678

This is also a good thread to read with a lot of things that worked for Mary and others:
http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=16077

Hello Globie

It seems maybe you are being hard on yourself as if this mess was all your fault. Did you decide one day "I'll have surgery and by the way, afterwards I'll take too many pills and build up a tolerance to them" No you most likely did not. Chances are you are like me and many others. We are born with the brain wiring that makes it easier for us to become addicted-kinda like an alcoholic. (I am an alcoholic as well as having been dependent on opiate's) Most people can have a drink or two or even more and then put the bottle down-no sweat, no thought just stop drinking to go eat or whatever. Alcoholics once having taken a drink lose control over how much they drink and how long they drink. They did not "decide" they would lose control-it just happened!

Same with a pill. We start out being ok with it then the one or two pills becomes 3 and 4 pills and so on. We reach the point where we are getting sick or getting in trouble and we know the pills are to blame yet we talk ourselves into still taking them.
Somewhere, somehow we lose the ability to "choose" and instead become victims or slaves to our addictions/dependency We also have the physical part that means if we stop we suffer withdrawals.

So, no it is not your fault however now that you know about treatment, it is your responsibility to get well and do your best to not engage in behaviors that will lead us back to taking pills. We get on suboxone but also get help from professionals and/or peers-people like us who have recovered, We go to meetings or we go to counseling and we remain open and honest as we are able to be.

Leave the guilt and remorse behind they are harmful. We can fall into such remorse that we feel so sorry for what we did then we become full of pity for ourselves and get the "whats the use, I'm no good might as well get high" also known as the "F-its"
You know "this does not work so F it, I'm getting stoned etc"

Be nice to others and be as kind to yourself. You are trying to get well and this is a big step. Do not be in a "race" to get off the suboxone-your body and brain will let you know when they are ready to start a taper and once started, taper at a slow pace.

You are no better and no worse then anyone in recovery so do not judge yourself. Odds are you are a "garden variety" pill popper/addict/substance abuser/etc etc...Therefore you will be able to get well just like everyone else. Do not judge your recovery by others-take it slow and steady and you are going to be OK

God bless

Glen

By the way, I had a sponsor in AA who heard me give my life story in five minutes and he called me a "garden variety drunk" and man I was PO'd! lol fact is I was and am a garden variety sober alcoholic today but man o man, I wanted to be special! lol

Globie, i came super close to losing my life... not even to speak about so called "friends" and a shit load of stuff But once i changed my approach to the way i see and live life, things changed in a way i can't couldn't even imagine i would have anything close to this Time is the best cure for addiction, sure it is a bit more complicated then that but once enough time passes things do get better even if you stay somewhat the same person, I wish you all the best in the future, stay safe and be well my friend.

Hi Globie

Great to hear you's doin well my friend. This is from all of us dudes in the UK. Well done that man! .

Thanks for sharing that very serious (and sad ) story of your work friend/colleague. It sure must have brought back memories for you.

But the main thing is that you used his experience to remind yourself (and us here on A.Survivors) of the dangers that we never realised were coming from our type of 'fun'.

It's so nice to hear that the boss gave him chances. It's good that more people are aware of this as an illness. I hope that you colleague finds a way to get straight and be given another chance.

But you must concerntrate on your recovery my friend, cos you deserve it.

We all deserve that! .

God Bless

Hi globie, that's really great that you're using your experience to show people that there is a better way of living than stuck in the mires of addiction.

Hopefully that guy will get help, but like Leo said, you concentrate on your recovery and keep up the good work.

Have a good weekend!

Hi globie, that is so good to hear that you're doing great and that you are helping so many people! That must make you feel so good to be able to do that and be a role model for them.

As for your question about replying to people who post, you can do it how you're posting now. Or you can go to the post that you want to reply to and use the green Quote button at the bottom right of each post. That will put the post in quotes, and you can respond in the same block underneath it. I hope that helps, let me know if you need more explanation.

Hope you have a good weekend also!

Nancy

Hi globie. Nothing in this area of life is fast. You have to make good choices in life. Sometimes it wont be the easiest or most popular choice but it will be the best choice. Cant make people do what u want them to do. Sometimes its better to show them how to be and maybe some of you will rub off onto them!
