Lathe, donh, and setmefree all had some good points that I don't need to repeat.
Just because your husband and who ever you are referring to as the suboxone users you know are not doing the right thing with their recovery, doesn't mean we all are like them.
It seems that the most ignorant ones are the ones who are least educated about that subject.....in this case, suboxone/subutex----buprenorphine treatment for opiate dependance.
Most of us have tried cold turkey quitting......it only lasts a certain amount of time. Some 1 week, some 1 month, some 1 year, some 40+ years. 90-97% will relapse, it is fact, it is a joke, and it is about time something such as Suboxone is available
. NA/AA success rates are 3-10%
, how the hell is that success?!? I AM NOT TALKING SHIT ABOUT 12 STEP MEETINGS, THEY CAN/DO SAVE LIVES.
Look it up on google
Many of us junkies know EXACTLY
what we have cost our loved ones and the pure hell we put them through. Most of us have lost lots of things. We know about ALL
the money that was blown. BUT, we decided to make a positive change that will allow us to fix every thing we messed up while in active addiction in a matter of time. "One day at a time."
For your information, I did not start using opiates untill I had severe chronic pain. Pain to this day without meds is 9-10. Numbing, burning, makes you want to fucking scream pain. I cannot lay in bed all day. I must work to support my family, with or without the pain. Now that I am on suboxone, and have had legitamite severe chronic pain for 10 years, why can't I use the suboxone to help with my addiction AND
slightly manage my pain so I can actually function without being numbed the fuck up and chasing a tolerance that we can never get (from full agonist opioids)? What is wrong with that? NOTHING!
I can go on, but it will sound like I am just trying to be mean. I am not. I do wish you and your husband can find the help that you both obviously could use. I got the help I needed. Good luck.
