Heroin relapse
tl21290 posted:
Hey I've been on suboxone for about 4 months I taperd off but relapsed and went on a 6 day binge of iv heroin use. I quit cold turkey and did three days of withdrawal which weren't horrible compared to previously but I ended up using 2 bags(normally use 6) tonight on day 3 of withdrawal my question is will it be as bad as day 1 want to know what I should expect tomorrow or if it is possible to taper using heroin

I have not been on suboxone myself..but I am a certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor as well as a recovering addict. My drug of choice was heroin, then I got on methadone, went to rehab, had a child and have been clean ever since.

I applaud you for your honesty. I don't think your 'dope'' sickness will be any worse than previously.

I am, however, more concerned about why you chose to use heroin again? If it was just b/c you missed the high or did something significant happen in your life?

I can completely relate. I've had some intense drug dreams and sometimes it seems so tempting!! I mean, who doesn't want to feel euphoric? God has blessed with a child and he has been my main motivation for staying clean and getting my degree.

I wish you well in whatever path you choose.
