    Smile Good for you!

    Hello,

    Im glad to hear you're giving it a shot. Its hard im not going to lie to you, i am currently on the same path. However, after many failed attempts to quit, i decided to look into suboxone treatment. If you are having bad withdraw symptoms like i was, this may be beneficial to you. I can't sit here and explain to you how the treatment works because well... Im not a doctor but it may be a good option. I honestly believe that anyone who is opioid dependent should look into suboxone. Its success rate is very high and it works well for me.

    But anyways, good luck and I hope you are doing well. depending on how strong your addiction was, you know the first couple weeks will be hell, but when you get through it, man its well worth it.

    I hope to hear back from you soon. GOOD LUCK!

    Eric .......Melinda is my wife and has been clean for well over two years now, pushing three years. She was offering you advice, not seeking it. She helps lots of people here with opiate tapers. You need to read the replies a little more closely. She doesn't need any luck, she has already beat this and is totally clean. She didn't need to go the suboxone route, she toughed it out and did it cold turkey the hard way. God bless.
