We had difficult child over for dinner last night as his birthday is today, but he has to work. I took him to target to get some sneakers and a few things he needed and on the way he told me that he's thinking about coming off the suboxone, but that he's really scared. He's been on it for quite a while now. Actually he's been on it for over a year, but he did relapse while on it last summer. He stopped taking it and went back to using. I'm sure it's different this time because last summer he stopped so he could use, but this time he's talking about wanting to come off it because he doesn't really feel like himself when he takes it. Funny, a drug addict who doesn't like the way a drug makes him feel He is talking about how he needs to rely on his sponsor and meetings and the program when he comes off it, so I was really proud of him. I told him he should just wean himself off and not mention it to his doctor yet, and if he finds he can't do it, then he's not ready to stop it yet. I was also amazed when I went to his apartment last night how spotless and organized his bedroom is. This is a kid who's room should have been condemned!!! His bed was made, his clothes were hung up and everything was in it's place. AMAZING!!
