    @Niki88 Welcome to the site,first I commend your courage as you battle addiction and raise 5 children with ZERO family or other support such as friends,etc.The first step is obviously admitting you have a problem and you have,it's also important to find a group you connect with and I think you said reading some stories here on the site has provided you with a sense of comfort and a place you fit in and we are glad to have you.Opiate addiction is very difficult, it's hard to stop something that keeps you from being sick(I know because I'm a opiate addict)who has struggled for quite some time but I keep pushing forward. You can overcome this but it takes serious commitment and will power.I think if you just stick to the suboxone and perhaps seek a therapist which is more important than most addicts understand I believe you can and will overcome this addiction which confines you.
    Stay Strong and God Bless.

    @Niki88 hello and welcome! You are no longer alone. You have this community. This is a great bunch of people who will help you. You have taken the first step. Get some counseling and use the suboxone the way it's supposed to be used. You can do this.

    You are far from alone , & like many & me , we were not born into a rich & healthy family .
    I wanna say I have never done Herion but took any opiate I could for 2 years & have been on Methadone for 15 + years & i'm not proud of that (other than I don't abuse it ) .
    You can overcome , (easy for me to say I know ) & no matter what has happened in life , tomorrow is always a new day.

    I'm a little off & slow today but I truly hope you come here for support whenever you want , there are some good & "Real" people here who can help & relate .
    I do pray for you and your family.
