I am currently taking suboxone for heroin addiction. Heroin has been my drug of choice since I was 17 and I am now 22. Although it may have been my drug of choice, heroin addiction sucks. Through those years of my life I managed to do absolutely nothing but get in trouble with the law and hurt my friends and family. I have wanted to quit for a long time and have nearly been successful a few times.

Recently I got back on suboxone. I have been on it once before in the past, but at that time I had no intention of quitting heroin. I was forced to start taking suboxone. This time I am truely giving quitting an honest shot. Thanks to suboxone I have now been clean of every drug, even marijuana, for about 4 months now. I will be going soon to a wilderness rehab in utah. When I go there I will detox of the suboxone and spend 50 days in the wilderness with other addicted persons where we will work on self discovery and many other aspects of addiction. I know suboxone is another addiction, but it is so much better than heroin, I dont get way too high like on heroin, it is hard to overdose on, if possible as long as I have a tolerance, and the withdrawal from it is so much better than regular opiate withdrawal. I am glad I am in a controlled environment for detox though. I feel I would have never made it this far unless it was for this drug. It is miracle drug that has given me a second chance at life.
