2 mg sublingual Pharms - Buprenorphine
  500 ug sublingual Naloxone
I have been basically drug free for nearly a year. I used to smoke cannabis heavily and abuse opiates from time to time for recreation. So this is not a report about how I got off anything, it is a report showing how I properly use Suboxone to have a good time. It may or may not affect others differently.

I first met Suboxone a couple months ago. It was introduced to me by a friend at work who knew I used to party. We were having a tough day at work and he said it would help get me by. I asked him what it was like and he told me that it was kind of like a weak oxycontin or popping a couple Adipex. I said I was game and we went and bought a Suboxone (8mg Buprenorphine, 2mg Naloxone. Sub lingual Strip) off his dude. We split the bill (Like $7.50 each) and he gave me half. The first thing I noticed was how low the dosage was in these strips and knew from past experience that this is something I shouldn't play with. I had heard around that these were prescribed to people to help get off opiate addictions, and also that they will mess you up in a bad way if you take too much (Nodding, Sickness, Withdrawals, Sweats).

He split his in half and I followed suit and took half under the tongue. I noticed the awful taste after a minute and we just drove down the road on the way back to work not saying anything.

My friend said 'Tastes like shit, doesn't it?'
I agreed and he told me not to eat or drink anything for 15-20 minutes after taking one.

We pulled into the parking lot at work, still having around 4 hours left in our shift for the day. My friend rolled his tongue up at me and asked if I seen anything, I said no and did the same. We clocked back in and headed to the warehouse to deliver some furniture. (Side note: Furniture delivery sucks, don't do it)

T + 0:45
We had a living room suite loaded up and hopped in the truck. On the way to the delivery I started to notice I was talking a lot.
I could feel a slight head change but nothing major.

Almost at our destination we were talking about absolutely everything. I don't even remember what all we talked about. We were joking and carrying on, feeling pretty good. We had stopped on the way and got sodas to get that taste out of our mouth.

T + 1:20
At the house we were packing furniture, talking to the customers, and performing our job very very well. I hadnt felt this good in a while. I had a slight mood change, huge boost of energy, and no social inhibition. I got along great for the rest of the day.

Work was over, the day went great and I still felt great.
Work was over, the day went great and I still felt great.
Went home and was happy to see my family. Kissed the wife, cleaned the house, played with our little one. Talked to her about everything, she was happy because usually I am dead on the couch after work for a couple hours.

T + 10:00
It seemed as if it had all but worn off. I still felt pretty good and had no trouble getting to sleep that night.

The next day I woke up for work and still felt good. I felt as if I had a good nights sleep. At work the next day my friend asked if I liked it, and I told him it was great. He then told me that he just took his other half. I had almost forgotten. I got into my cigarette pack and grabbed my other half and was thinking 'Hell yes, day two of awesome.'

I took the same dose sublingually, around T + 20:00.

Everything was good at first and I was thinking this was great. About two or three hours later I thought otherwise. I started to get the sweats and knew this was going to be a bad day. I felt like my sugar plummeted. This may have even been what was going on because I hadn't ate yet that day. I grabbed a coke and some cookies and kicked back in a recliner at the warehouse for about 20 minutes. I told our boss that my sugar was bottoming out. I told her I drank a red bull that morning and didn't eat. She bought it and I started to feel better after a bit. I took it easy that day but didn't get the same boost at all. I felt something but not really.

SO, lessons learned. Now I buy one every couple of weeks on pay day, and quarter it out. I save it for tough days at work or when I'm bored and haven't had one in a few days.

All and all I love it. I have had a lot of experience with opiates in the past so it was easy for me to figure this drug out. I still haven't had a bad trip so to speak, but I don't go crazy with it and I try to eat before I take it.

There are mostly reports about how it affects addicts or past addicts, and I felt as though this report was needed. Also I don't recommend trying new drugs at work, or while driving... I am a dumb ass who took too much cough medicine when he was a teenager.
