The reason I ask is because I have been an opiate addict for 3 years. Non stop all day every day. I was taking tramadol. The withdrawals are worse(for me) than some of the harder narcotics. I have a dozen failed sobriety attempts. The psychological and physical death grip that poison has on me is unbelievable! I am willing to do whatever it takes to stay clean. I have an appointment this friday with a psychiatrist, but those of you who are familiar with addiction know, how that seems like an eternity. I want to be in the position to help people, first I know I need to help myself. In the pains of addiction seconds seem endless. Thank you all for any replies I get. I often felt hopeless because I have some mental illness(depression,anxiety, add), I think I have been just self medicating myself to be happy. Do you think I would be a suboxone candidate. I know I need medication, just none habbit forming.
