Wow! You are coming up on 4 years, Ronnie! That's great! Four years without having to worry about the garbage that goes along with active addiction. Four years of getting your life straightened out. Four years of good times with your family. Four years of not having to wonder about where you're going to find the money and a source for more drugs. Four years of growth as a 'normal' human being. Four years of learning how, and that you can, live life without the drugs. That is wonderful!
My Suboxone start date was 7-9-2009. I had taken my last handful of Lortab and Soma on the previous morning. I went to my first appointment with my Sub doctor in high hopes that I would never have to feel the way I had felt that morning ever again.....the feeling of not only the physical miseries of opiate withdrawal, but the mental aspects as well. I knew that I couldn't keep doing it. I was tired of the lies as much as anything else. My expectations were met. I left that appointment feeling something I hadn't felt in a long time.....NORMAL! I am very grateful!

I can honestly say if it wasn't for my son being born then chances are I'd prob be dead. It just really hit me when my girl was pregnant it was like wait a second do you want this beautiful baby to have no father and when he gets older to know his father died because he was a scumbag drug addict, nope not gonna happen.

Congrats Ronnie and Setmefree on your recovery time. I started suboxone on December 9, 2008 and have been on it steady since then.
It's always nice to see how everyone is progressing, so thanks, Ronnie for starting this thread.
