Quitting oxycodone using suboxone taper. - Part 28

  1. JD. Your words always make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Thank you for checking in and for the amazing confidence boost.

    Yesterday went really really well. Tons of people, tons of fun, tons or clean up but made it through. I did get a bit buzzed and in that state did have cravings for oxy but they left me pretty quickly. Honestly didn't even have time to think about cravings. It was a long day and I fully expected to be falling off my feet by the time I cleaned everything up at 10 pm but not so. My buddy stayed over and we hung out til 1 am playing gta and me improvising on my keyboard (I like to write music).

    When I got to bed at 1 am I couldn't fall asleep until 2:30 (not good when you have three boys to wake up to). Lucky for me my wife was amazingly kind and let me sleep in while her and my mother in law took care of the morning activities.

    I woke up at 10 am which is a first for me this past year. A bit hungover in the morning but not much. I'v learned my limit a while back (too bad same didn't apply with opiates. There was no fucking limit).

    Day 8 had been a good day. Still dealing with cleanup and organizing all the presents but overall feel ok. I go back to work tomorrow. I'm certainly proud of this highly productive week. After years of struggling I can see the end and it's glorious.

    I hope you're all doing well. Much love and hugs.

    You are doing so good. Being back to work will be good for you. It helps you focus your energy elsewhere. Glad you had a good time. Some believe in total abstinence. I really think each person knows what substance is a problem for them and for me the whole alcohol hangover thing helps me very effectively moderate my use ;)

    Every day I get up and read the updates. I look forward to your success and it gives me the strength to get sticking to my own long taper. Doing OK. Have decided to stay at 8 a few days. This long half life makes this a bit hard as what I am likely feeling is the cut from several moons ago. Anyhow, holding but not going up.

    Glad you had such a good time. Its like it was a double celebration. Your boys turning 1 and you getting clean.

    You've come so far and done so well. I'm so happy for you. Hearing stories like yours make me think that one day i might get clean, however Methadone is too much of a safety net for me and i know i aren't ready.

    How was the first day back? Still feeling good? Had you on my mind all day! Busy day for me work wise. Detox symptoms kinda sucking. Think I may be holding a few days here at 8...either that or I am gonna be brave and try to just jump to kratom. I am so impatient. Hope you are well!

    You will be ready when you are ready. I think that is the main thing. When you are ready to come off the methadone, you will kick it in the ass. :)

    Hugs to you both,
