During my 19 days on Sub my sentiment was the exact same as yours is now. I was like "are you kidding me? This is great! I have my life back completely". There were no cravings, no hurting my liver, no worrying if I would run out of pills, etc... Everything in life seemed to be back to normal and I thought I was set. The problem though was that I was just delaying the inevitable. My goal was to get completely off opiates and not need/want anything anymore. Sub is 100x better than taking 10+ vikes per day, but in the end, I wanted off the Sub too.

So, with that said, I have great things to say about Sub. It works wonders and I do recommend it, but only for 2-3 weeks to get you off of the addictive behavior one goes through for a long time during their dependency.

Just be very careful with staying on Sub for too long because many people say getting off Sub is harder than getting off Vicodin or other pills. It was more difficult for me because I was unprepared for it. My doc naivly thought getting off Sub is about 10% as hard as Vikes, so I thought it would be a breeze. It was not a breeze, but it was doable. You can do it. Just prepare yourself for a lousy few weeks in which each day gets slightly better than the previous. 2-3 weeks into it you'll probably have your first good day and that will give you a glimpse of how good life is going to be for many years to come. And when that time comes, this few weeks of getting off will be a distant memory and one you can't be pleased enough to have overcome.

thanks niceguy, dont u love how dr's misrepresent these things, I went to him witha desire to be clean and ended up with ANOTHER addiction! Yeah, my life has changed for the better with sub, but in hind sight wish I'd just hung on a bit longer and stayed truly clean...took me a long time to understand this. What really opened my eyes was after my divorce, I had a new girlfriend and had to explain what meds I waas taking and why, and was embarrassed to say it was a drug I was dependant on. John
