I'm not actually newly sober, but I am new to the group. I am a little lost on where to start... Anyway, I am 37 years old, and I have been on Suboxone for over 10 years now. I was addicted to opiates off & on through my teenage years, drank almost everyday through my 20's, and in my late 20's got hooked on opiates & decided to start Suboxone treatment. I was/am very dedicated to staying clean & never had a relapse. I am now seeing a doctor that thinks it is best for me to get involved with a recovery group, so I thought it would be a great idea to get on here & start meeting some people! I also, at this point, feel like I am pretty seasoned on the subject of taking Suboxone. If anyone needs info, just let me know.

Danny,

Welcome to the forum.  It's been a little slow lately, so it's good to see some new members.  Many of us have found groups like Life Ring a big help in our efforts to stop drinking.  For a start, you might want to look at some of the member's journals - they describe what we went through in trying to stop.    And if you could start a new group, that would be great.

Brian
