my bf been on Suboxone about a year, but he's been taking over the countersleeping pills while on it. ( 6 pills a night) He tells me he can'e sleep. does he get a high off this?cause he doesn't sleep.he so lazy
Addicts usually suffer from other problems, mostly mental problems that need professional help. It's obvious that he's abusing these pills and it doesn't matter whether they are prescription or OTC. If he is lazy and doing nothing then he needs help. Try and get him to talk about this to his suboxone doctor ect..Good luck..Dave
I don't know what drugs he is taking at night or how he is taking the subs (dose, times, etc) each day when he takes them. Bottom line though is that Dave is absolutely correct.
The actual "act" of taking drugs is just one symptom of addiction. While he isn't necessarily using either street or RX drugs he is still participating in addictive behaviors. There is more to recovery than simply not using drugs. :(
He needs to discuss this problem personally face to face with a psych dr and get some help. I've seen people in 12 step recovery programs that had over ten years clean and still acted like an addict. The only thing that changed in their life was the actual act of consuming the drugs. But otherwise they were still the same person.
Let us know what kind of success you have convincing your boyfriend to speak openly with a dr about these problems. I wish you guys all the best. God bless. : )
