    Funny, the sneezing didn't hit me for at least a week after quitting. Stay strong man! It's sooooo much better on the other side. Tomorrow I'll be 3 weeks clean and I haven't felt this great in years.

    would not even waste your time taking any opiates.. your receptors are pretty clogged from the SUBs.. We are here for you! Reid

    hi Dave...i totally agree with Reid. why even bother with the vic's? congratulations to u for stopping the subs and this would have been ur very first "clean" day. but taking the vic's prolongs the addiction. and like Reid says, they shouldn't have any effect anyway because u most surely have some subs hanging onto them receptors. and even worse perhaps is the fact u MAY still have some of the vic's left over. IF that's the case it's just way too risky to reach for one when and if any symptoms become "bothersome" for u in the next few days. it's just way too much to be messing with that stuff. i'm speaking from experience and know how tempting it can be to have those kinds of pills around. just my thoughts and i'm not judging u in any way.

    if u have already taken some today nothing can be done about that, but if u have any left over i would flush them immediately to avoid future temptation. again congrats for getting off the subs and i certainly wish u the very best Dave.

    Thanks Kikker.....I know I should have just Stopped today!! Your both right.....same thing I would have told somebody else!! I WILL flush the last couple Vicodin I have left, because I totally agree......you can't have anything laying atound.....because eventually.......you crack & take'em!!!!! I know myself & this addiction well enough!!! Thanks for responding, & not judging!! I appreciate EVERYONES input....advise....opinion's, etc!!! Dave

    No.....nothing but a couple 5mg. Vicodin.....& they were a waste, because I still feel like full Wd's are starting to kick in!! Took last ....VERY TINY piece of Suboxone yesterday at around.......late afternoon?? So, almost 24 hours ago......It REALLY SUCKS!!! But I knew what I was in for!!

    I'm truly amazed at what they did for me... You've definitely got to go your own course, but since we're doing it together, I figured I might push... A little;-)

    Anon and Dave.

    Stay strong you two. This will all be over before you know it. We have all been where you are now. This will end. FYI - if you are taking small doses of your drug of choice, far below what you are used to, you are really only prolonging the WDs. It's really a choice, you are either tappering very slowly to feel almost no WDs, or you are cold T powering through the WDs as fast as possible. IMHO.

    You can do it, Dave!

    Like they said....ditch the Vic's from here on out. You already know this is gonna take awhile.

    You have to get those receptors clean asap. Personally...I think the Lopermaide prolongs it, too. It does help for a while....you just keep going in and out of it though. Start feeling alittle better then it comes back and slaps you across the face lol.

    Getting out and doing anything made me feel better for a few hours. Really...cardio is the best thing you could do. For some reason I didn't work out a lot this time. I made it through, though. All you can do is ride it out for a few weeks.

    You want to hear some good news.....it's been a month and I feel like a new man!

    I know, brother. No matter how many times you go through it...you still want to hear someone tell you, you'll be ok soon.

    Just clear you schedule for the next month, lol.

    No, really..just don't take any opiates and you will get through it. You know what to do, Dave. The thing about the sub detox is...it isn't that bad and you can function and do things. Sometimes you don't want to, but you can and usually feel better, after. It's just annoying and takes awhile to go away.

    You know what to do, Dave. I'll stop by and check the updates.

    And I was on Vic's and Percs. All day, everyday..like a idiot. Then subs for a few weeks.

    Yeah.....Ryan.......I know what to do!!! Been dealing with this junk for over s decade!!! At one time, I was taking over 250mgs. Of Oxycontin daily!!! Good thing you were only on Subs for a few weeks.....I had been on them for over 3 years...until I went through all of this a year and a half ago!! Stayed clean for about 6 months.......was feeling so good....and.......well......here I am again!!! The worst part is Zero energy for a Long time!!! I've read that if you've been on Suboxone long term.....like years.......it takes over a year for all your receptors to start firing again!!! Anyway.....stay in touch.....please!!!! All of you.....

    Yeah.....no kidding Eddie!!! That's pretty bad....like waving a carrot....eh??? It's all good!! There will ALWAYS be temptation......I know.....cause I quit drinking over ten years ago......and now they got booze in ALL the grocery stores here in Washington........Doesn"t really bother me though!! If you're really serious about being clean & for me Sober....then youn gotta get past all the temptation!! I still have a few Vicodin left, but after I finish responding to you....I am going to do the serimomial(sp) FLUSH!!! I am VERY SERIOUS about staying off this junk!!! Stay Strong....ALL....and again, Thanks to you all..who have supported me this far!! Dave
