Hey  and welcome. I'm currently on subs and at 4mg a day. I couldn't imagine jumping now. Usually u woukd try to get as low as u possibly could before jumping.do u mind me asking why ur jumping now? How long how u been on them. When did u jump? Answering tuese will help us help u. If its not possible to b on them anymore I suggest speaking to ur dr abt something to help you with the wd bc it couk d get bad. Check out tue thomas recipe there a ton of things there tht will also help,  immodium is an absolute must take it as much as u want it will help a lot. Hot hot baths will help with body aches and legs the more active u aren the better.  I kno its hard but it helps after the first week of course. Stay hydrated and try to eat when u can. Stay away from alcohol and caffeine they will only make it worse. I'd also pick up something for sleep if ur dr won't give u something.  Stay here and talk abt how ur feeling everyone here is amazing and will help u thru it

hello yeah today is day 3 .. no dr got them for a year or over from the streets and pretty much stayed at the same dose the whole time.. i just quit because i was done just woke up one day and was like when these last couple are gone so is the this addiction so i stopped and im very very determined. so far i havent been to bad last night was the first night i couldnt sleep.. day one and two not so bad today i feel ok i walked a couple miles last night which felt awesome. so i guess i just want to know if you thnk im going get to like day 14 or just some later date and then start to feel bad.. i mean dont get me wrong i dont feel great now but its just tolerable.. i will win either way just like to know what to expect

You can do it!!  from what I've read the half-life is 48 hours so if you're on day 3 it PROBABLY won't get worse--also read that sub stays in your system 21 days but I'm sure less and less of it each day after the 48 hrs?  I'm actually amazed you're doin this well, with walking and all, I was thinking of jumping at 2mg....how long were you on it?

not to sure i know over a year and not more then 2 but when i think about it my child is three and when she was born it wasnt long after i made a change from spending 100 bucks a day to 25 so ima say year n half or more.. you can do it just have to be determined and want to stop. im sure there are better ways to go about it but i wanted to stop and stop right then .. good luck you can do it!

The half life is really long on them.  I'd say u should hit ur peak tomorrow or wed. Thts the bad thing abt subsnwhen ur stpping thts y they should b tapered, but with tht in mind the more positive u are the better.  Ur doing great keep posting and I have faith u will b just fine! :)

I jumped off at 8mg/day for 2yrs 8 days ago. Experienced next to no w/D's. Today is day 8 since I quit, and I actually ran the treadmill and worked out first thing this morning. I seriously believe sub w/D's are what you make of them. If you go into it thinking that it's going to be horrible, then it will be. But if you go into it thinking that nothing will beat you, then nothing will. If every expectant mother went into their pregnancy thinking about how terrible the end-game pain would be, nobody would have children. Its the final goal that you keep set in your mind that drives you through anything in order to attain that goal, whether it be child birth, or sobriety. In the end its all the same. Stay positive! Psych yourself up, not psych yourself out!!!
