Really... "NA and AA are about being able to face life w/o any substances at all." They must have changed? No SSRI's? No nicotine? No caffeine? No brain dope? No dry drunks? Hell I might give it another chance... I am going to try Smart Recovery first.
Thanks for your response. Just like the classification, nothing has changed. They are probably still chugging coffee and chain-smoking...
As an active N/A member (who is currently attempting to quit smoking and going insane) the attitude I take with suboxone is, please come to meetings, learn all you can, make connections with people and get numbers. The only thing I ask is that you don't collect clean time until your off the subs. As far as cannabis is concerned....that would be considered using.
Marijuana is a psychoactive drug that is scheduled as a narcotic. Yes NA still considers it a drug Because just like alcohol it is a drug. Congratulations on all you have accomplished !
Lol and yes cannabis is still considered a narcotic. Never answered that.
Hi congrats on your clean time. I am happy for you and very proud of you. I do know that suboxone is frowned by many fellowships. Being on suboxone is not considered "being clean". Then again there is the clause " the desire to stop using" which is what the person is doing on the subs or meth.
It is supposed to be abstinence from any kind of altering drugs. That being said if someone is on mmt or subs long term and need support what options are there?
About the cannabis.??
Not sure how to respond.
Legal in many states & becoming more so but,
Alcohol is also legal. I believe cigarettes are also mind altering as is caffeine.
I would probably think it would be frowned upon. I wouldn't want you to not go though because of it. I just wouldn't announce it.
I am sure there would be many who do if they were honest.
