    Yesterday had work early at 8am n didnt take my .125 till 3 when i got off i held off it was a lil ahrd but not cause i needed it im sure it was way more of a mental thing. Also startin gettin myself ready for today yesterday just by tellin myself tom is the skip day. My work had there anniversary party last night went over there had a good time. Woke up this morning round 10 feelin good n gona do my Best to skip today just gona watch alot of Football n take it easy. Feel like since its kinda established in my head tht im not takin today it def makes it easier im not sitting around basically waitin for 3pm like most days. If it gets a lil difficult which im not really expecting ima take a clonopin n prob a valium at nite only if i think ima really need it but im thinkin ima be fine Hope So...quick question for tom when i dose again keep it the same at 3pm or wat??? Stayin Strong Feelin like im Almost there Gotta Tough it out though...Peace

    Hi Movin' On: Are you talking about clonidine? I hope so because you do NOT want to take two separate benzo's. Klonipin is a benzo and so is valium. If you mean clonidine, I think the clonidine will hold you w/o the valium, you are wise to use them only if you need to. As addicts, we always want to reach for something.

    Yup, tomorrow dose again at .125mg. at 3pm. If you're fine without it, you can just not take it all. Many make the jump here. It's how you feel about it that counts. Let us know how you are doing! We can give advice on symptoms as you go: make sure you are staying hydrated with plenty of water, orange juice, etc. Stay away from energy drinks and soda. You are doing GREAT and are almost there! I know I haven't posted before, but congrats and HANG TOUGH!

    Peace,

    So Went all day yesterday without a piece felt pretty good!!! only thing i noticed other than at nite was a lil sneezing n some chills randomly but not too often. I took a 1mg klonipin yesterday @4pm n then at like 10pm or 11pm took a half of a valium so i could make sure i got some sleep since i have work today but kept wakin up a good bit of the nite n around 4 or 5 am took the other half of the 10mg valium so i could knock out fell asleep n woke up this mroning around 10am feelin alrite to start the day not really feeling any W/d symptoms as of now tht i can tell. Im not sure about today i guess I'll wait till three n see how i feel but i do have work today so i dont wanna be draggin or nuttin ya know. O n if i do take a piece today im not settin myself back huh like i know the next step after today would be skippin two days is it gona be harder if i dose today??...Stayin Strong

    I've taken Soma during the day and a benzo like Xanex, KLon OR Valium to help sleep at night without any problems but never for three days in row. Hopefully you have a jacuzzi at the gym you can use and that's basically like taking a soma and will help with aches. From here i'd get a good vitamin/mineral supplement and some l-Tyrosine.

    I thought you were skipping Sat, but yes sundays a good couch day this time of year. So you gotta finish this up as with everything else - what works best for you. Rose already mentioned many just jump from here.

    You are very smart and already know how much is mental. The coldness...just consider yourself lucky it's not Jan and the N.East. Quitting any opiate has strange effects on temperature regulation. Wear layers so you can remove easily to adjust.

    Yep sleep might to tough for a little while. Sneezing? That's also very common and nuthin to worry about. Sucks Monkeys tho so perhaps a zyrtec at night? I'd really like to see you stay strong for the day - i think you got this. But if you do...then yep it sets you back one day. If you need it then i understand no judgement. However, your next would then be to skip one day, then two - If you decide to dose today.

    Watch out for these benzo's and the differing half lives of them. You know you can fail a drug test and test positive for benzo after not using months? Know why? They store like THC in your fat cells and months down the road you can excercise and that unleashes. Any NOW is the time you need to really lean on something like that, so be very mindful of your usage and beware of combining the valium and Klonnie.

    If you feel good then you could certainly drop now and just be done. The things you have been feeling (chills, sneezing etc) may persist and then you will have some lethargy likely to deal with. The plan does call skipping a day, dosing, skipping two etc..so if you are not quite set that's fine and dosing today is what you should do - according to Robert_325, you are then supposed to go two days w/out.

    That's an awful benzo mash up you've got goin there. Didnt realize you were taking all 3. Be careful how you run out completely of those. You may have to deal with a workday after a sleepness night. A few of those is a small price to pay, whereas too many benzo's and the price could be too steep. You're a smart guy. Weigh the two in your head. If you dose today then at least reduce the amount you planned on taking tonite. I think having them will me more important in the coming days, and ive said it all along you don't want to take too many nights in a row.

    Remain strong. Rootin' for ya!

    Just get a few days clean and you'll begin to feel a shift. The drug haze will lift and new opportunities will arise. Old ones, like your music, will interest again and now with added depth and experience.

    If you don't need it don't take it. Now it's about developing new habits.

    Both happy and proud! Great job man. Keep it up - stay strong.

    Not so fast Unfortunately Im so Embarrassed n Disappointed in myself today because of last nite. Yesterday i went out to my Dad's lil store to help him out n work for a lil while thinkin thtd be better than just sitting at home well everything was going fine wasnt feeling like i needed my .125mg so i didnt take it. i did wind up takin a quarter of a bar around 3 and after a few hours towards closing time around 6 or 7 for some dam reason i started scheming bascially calllin a couple ppl seeing if they had any valium or anything other than opiates well tht didnt work out n i got weak n lookin back it all happened so fast of course n at the end of the nite around midnight or 1 found myself gettin loaded on some dope. Prob did a 20 maybe a lil more i wasnt even feelin bad yesterday just a urge obviously n gave in unfortunatley. Cant tell u how disappointed in myself i have been all day today but i will tell yall this i will not let this turn the wrong way n go back to using Dope or Subs. Im tryna use it to motivate myself even more so to be done now cause it def wasnt worth it last nite. I Know i was right there at the end too so im 100% positive tht i can do this n finish it the RIGHT way cause i really do want to be done. I just hope i havent set myself back too much cause of last nite but if so o well i deserve it n i'll just take it as punishment for last nite. Feelin fine today other than being disappointed in myself for last nite. Had work today n havent taken anything today no sub no bars nuttin n gona keep it like tht unless for some reason i cant sleep tonite which im not expecting. Idk exactly wat i should do from here on but my plan in my head rite now is just to tough it out from here on no subs tom or the next day. Got work tom at 2 -7 n then off sunday. I will finish wat ive started here n be done with opiates for good thts a PROMISE.

Didnt take anything sunday no bars or valium just some nyquil at night tht was it. Slept pretty well too i dreamt last nite which i havent in a lil while i feel like. So today is Day 4 of being without any Subs or Opiates n gotta say feelin better compared to the past few days. Have work today at four so ill be busy with tht later today n ima just do my best to keep busy start to workout again eventually work on music which i have today some n just start some NEW HABITS.

    Suboxone are medications approved for the treatment of opiate dependence. It works to reduce the symptoms of opiate dependence. Suboxone treatment is used to help individuals overcome addiction to opiods like >>>>>>, methadone or prescription painkillers. Possible side effects include sweating, stomach pain, dizziness, weakness and more. It can cause death from an overdose. Individuals who undertake this treatment are required to have ongoing alcohol and drug treatment to ensure the best chance of successful addiction treatment. The length of treatment will be determined by the doctor and it varies for each individual. The patient's doctor may eventually taper the suboxone treatment over time, taking care that the patient does not experience withdrawal symptoms or cravings. Every individual's tolerance and reactions to suboxone vary so daily appointments and medications will be adjusted until the patient no longer experiences withdrawal and cravings. It is administered under the direction of a physician and with ongoing drug addiction treatments. It can lead to death or causes negative effects if overdose are taken.

    Movin - Hello I am Ken . I normally stay in the sub forum but saw your thread this morning and fishing at Grand Isle jumped out at me then the Saints . If you don't mind me asking how did you do ? Fishing has been crazy here ( hop , skip and a jump from Grand ) for 5 weeks but of course it always is this time of year . Anyways I wanted to drop in and wish you the best finishing up and beyond with recovery . Take care .
