the phrase 'kicking the habit' comes from the involuntary muscle movements during heroin withdrawal. In my experience, and
I have seen many people in withdrawal, people coming of Suboxone
go to work and
do the shopping and complain that they are at death's door; people coming off agonists are in bed, often for weeks. They don't go to work, they don't go to the grocery store, and they don't eat. And they don't have the energy to complain about how sick they feel.
