What is going on, everyone? It is Greg here from Project Unbroken. Today what I’m gonna tell you is what I like the most about methadone. There’s a lot of things I don’t like about methadone, but the one thing that I really like about methadone is that when I took it, I couldn’t use it all.
There’s times where I tried to even wait like 24 hours, even longer, to not take my methadone so I could use, but it still wouldn’t work. Now, I was just sniffing it and I had a friend who was shooting it, and after about a day he was shooting, he would say he could feel it, but he had to use a lot more and it still … he didn’t feel it as much.
I took Suboxone before. I think the reason I kept failing with that is because it’s not as good of a blocker. I would wait 12, 16 hours and then sniff some heroin and I would feel it pretty much the same as I would before.
So the Suboxone was more like a crutch, where I would just kinda use it and I would keep giving in and go back to using, maybe go on for a few days, go use. So it was more of like a back and forth.
The methadone was like I was stuck, and there were good and bad things about that. But it’s the one thing that I really like about methadone, is the fact that I couldn’t use. So even though I kept trying to go back and use here and there, after a while I was like, “Why the fuck am I doing this? I’m not getting high. I’m spending this money on heroin.
Either I’m gonna stay on the methadone or I’m just gonna get off.” I didn’t wanna just get off because it’s not easy to get back on the program, and I knew that if I got off I would be back on the heroin every single day, which is not the direction I wanted.
Definitely the one thing that I like about methadone is it helped me commit to not using anymore because I couldn’t. Even though I tried here and there, I just couldn’t in the end. It’s definitely the biggest thing I like about methadone. There’s a lot of things I don’t like about it, which I’ll cover in another video, but number one thing I like about methadone.
Now, before you go and get on it just because of that one thing, make sure you watch my other video on what I don’t like about it or the more in-depth videos of my story, because it’s important you know all the details.
It’s hard for me to even recommend methadone because of the bad things that come along with it. But definitely the one thing I like is that it made me commit. I couldn’t use on it and it was a big thing for methadone.
I hope you all enjoyed this video. Subscribe, and I’ll see you in the next one.
