well family, i dont think im doing this correctly, im struggling with the withdrawls, i do work full time and im wondering if that could be why im having a harder time. i dont want to go on methadone or subs, i just want a taper plan that will work for me and allow me to keep my job. i cant afford not to work. i know im already on a very very slow taper, and failed many times, but i know that there is one out there for me that will work, we who are on some type of opiate taper, or detox are all different with different circumtances. i wish i could take months off of work and do a taper and only focus on that, but unfortunately living in hawaii is a nitemare. the cost of living is horrids and the job situation , well its political, who you know. so that is why i need to keep my job. just throwing this out there, anyone whos done a taper, wether it takes months or anything to get off, and was able to hold down a full time job with just about no withdrawls, please inbox me your plan. thanks all, leanne

I have not given up on you. I don't give up on people who keep asking for help. I guess I'm just thick headed. I sent you a plan. It's really nothing new. But it is something I have used successfully many times before. So keep an eye out for it. There's a lot to read in it. I hope it all comes through. I always worry about exceeding bandwidth limitations.
Let me know when you get it. I have kept a copy of it on my PC.
Dear Hawaii, I'm sure the stress of everything you are going through does cause anxiety and I am very sorry for you. But it is not going to be painless (in my experience) I just kept and keeping on thinking that I will succeed no matter how hard it is. I just kept in mind that I am stronger than whatever withdrawls could throw at me. Good Luck-K
Hi dear Leanne... don't know what else I can do to help you. As Thor said, I not like to give up on people who need help. The reason I went on suboxone is exactly with what you are struggling. I need to work and keep my job which is highly stressful. I went on low dose and am now weaning. I think it is easier weaning from this than it would have been for me to wean from the Norcos for which I was taking many a day. But this is me... I am not trying ro push you into going on sub because I see in your question that it is not what you want to do. Suboxone is so different t than methadone of which was NEVER an option I would have entertained. It sounds like Thor has a plan for you that will work so I hope you will try that plan and I wish you much success with it. As always, I will remember you in my prayers.
Hang in their sweet girl. Keep on trudging along... you will succeed if you keep moving forward. All my best to you my dear... pup
