Hey, hockey, I remember you.
I was on the exact same amount you were on. No sex drive. Zero. Michael Fassbender could have knocked on the door in a towel and I would't have cared. (tmi?) Yes, it came back. Everything comes back. All of our feelings. Good and bad.
Why are you starting next week? Why not now?
I am leaving my job at the end of the week, I want to wait until I have the time off I need to go through the detox process. My job is just way too physically demanding and I cannot afford to mess up these next few days; my next contract is riding on it. I gave myself a month so i can go through everything I need to get back on the right track before the next gig. I've told my doctor I'm finished, and I have no other options to get the pills. I'm going to try and taper as much as I can in the next week, not that its really going to matter. I'm done on 12/1. Thats my date. I want to start my new gig clean; and I have the time I need to accomplish it. I'm just looking to hear how other people have recovered and was hoping that my lack of sex drive is something I can look forward to getting back. I'm not giving in, I want to be clean; I'll do whatever it takes. I never thought I would get up the courage to tell my doctor and go figure when I told him he wanted me to go to a suboxone treatment. Nope; thanks to what I have read on here I am not interested in just trading one addiction for another.
Thanks for your response j - that is what I was hoping to hear. I'll definitely be in touch.
I am SO glad you are not going on suboxone!! Years ago a doctor recommended the same to me, so glad I never did.
Very glad to hear you have no access to any pills. That's a vital first step.
Stay very close to this site...everyone will gather around to support you:)
the one thing I can say is the SEX or Sex drive is one of the first things to come back !! at times when I was abusing I felt so sad that my smoking wife was deprived of me and the pills were more important aaahhhh what a waste now I need no Viagra hmmm imagine that the opiates masked all feelings sexual and emotional. just wait the natural endorphins that are supplied with sex will be a great boost I wish you the best.
Believe me, your mojo will come back and with a vengance!!! Just make sure to keep some water on your nightstand....you will need it!!!!
