I have had a wonderful change in my life because of this drug. I have been fighting alcoholism and narcotic addiction since the age of 14. I am now 41. I started taking Suboxone in detox to get off of narcotics. I got out and still had terrible cravings. I saw my PCP, who is also trained to prescribe suboxone. I do not crave at all. I still miss being able to drink for the social stuff, but I can say that I have never NOT CRAVED until I started taking this drug. I know that some people think it is giving up one for another, but this drug is taken sub-lingually and does not go through the major organs. I also know I will probably take it for the rest of my life, but because my cravings are gone, I am willing to do that. Anybody else have this experience?
