1 year ago today, I decided I was sick of my day to day life dependent on having pills. I took my last dose and prepared for a ride through hell. I had read so many horror stories of people trying to quit so I was absolutely scared to death but subutex for 5-6 years and opiates for a few years before that had saturated my body. Something had to give!
I jumped from an average daily dose of 24-28mg and these horror stories I read were from people jumping off at less than 2mg a day. I was just so fed up, my mind was set and I was finally determined. If you are affraid, dont be! It wasnt fun but I still managed to work everyday through the withdrawal. It was very long, very drawn out, but mild looking back.
Fast forward to today and I'm a whole new person. Every single thing about me has changed for the better! Getting off the pills was the absolute best thing I could've ever done for myself and it was worth every bit of the struggle I went through to get here.
If anyone would like to know more, you can message me or click on my profile and read my journal and journal entries which details the last year of my sobriety, starting at day 1.
God Bless you all and thank you for your support!
