13 days off methadone

I was on methadone for 9 years, I'm 30 yrs old and its been 13 long days since my last dose. I was prescribed suboxone, 16 mgs a day. I only took that dose for 3 days, then went to only 4 mgs for 2 days. I've been taking about 1-2 mgs a day, just enough to be able to get out of bed. I took 1 mg about 17 hours ago, and I'm feeling ok. I'm gonna try to take no sub today. If I do stay on 1-2 mgs daily for another week, will it be hard to stop physically? I still cant believe I'm done with all those trips to the clinic. I always thought I would never be free from those liquid handcuffs, If I could do it, anyone can. The wds are terrible and I probably wont sleep right for the next 6 months,but thats ok. The hardest part is getting use to living daily life without a drug to help me get through the day. I started using drugs, any kind i could get my hands on at 13 so I'm a little scared.

Dont Look at it as "13 Long days since your last dose" that sounds like a regretful bad thing what you should do is turn that stinkin thinkin around and say its 13 days since i grabbed the reins and the drivers seat of my life back from chemical dependency and Wow i cant wait to see what the next 13 brings.
Be courageous Be Positive, If you do not Love and Respect yourself how can you expect it from anyone else!!.

Keep Going its worth the effort

Peace
