Was hooked on Vicodin, elevated myself to Methadone
(not prescribed), and
after 6 years, decided to admit myself into an outpatient Suboxone program, attending group meetings 4 days a week, under 24mg of SubX per day.
After 2yrs, I stopped going to the program, stopped Suboxone and Valium, cold turkey, went through the excruciating withdrawl symptoms, and was clean for 2yrs.
2 Winters ago, I was re-introduced to Suboxone through a friend, who had a 2mg pill, and shared it with me.
