Count my husband as another one, but he was on it for several months.  For the love of God, please hang in there!  You're about to turn the corner and you WILL start to notice that the worst is over.  Are you getting any kind of aftercare at all?

HI sorry to here about your negative sub experience....to many people try to use sub as a get out of jail free card....it was never intended for that and for a lot of people getting off it is difficult to say the least....sub saves lives if used for the most chronic abusers and they stay on it a wile to get the life back on track...work aftercare and build up a foundation so they can stand on there own 2 feet once off I think its a good thing right now if I where you I would go to the lower right hand side of the screen and look up the amino acid protcal  theres some amino's listed there that will  help get you back on your feet when sub is tuff its hard to come off of and your going to need the supplements to bring you back around this also has to do with how long and hard your habit was b/4 sub  recovery dose not come over night coming off long hard habits it can take a month or 2 for everything to get back to normal ...keep posting for support and hang in there both God and time will heal you good luck and God bless.......Gnarly
