... been abusing opiates for almost two years. I start a Sub program tomorrow, along with 4 NA meetings per week. I have tried cold turkey quits many times and failed. My lastest attempt was less than two weeks ago, made it 2 1/2 days only to fail once again. I did succeed in lowering my dose by quite a bit. I am taking half of the total mg that I was. My question is, being that I am already feeling some withdrawl symtoms, and i start the Sub program tomorrow, is it a positive that I reduced my intake before starting the program? I have not yet seen the Doctor for my blood screening
