Hello RC! Thanks for the encouragement.
I kinda came to the same conclusion about kratom. I used opies to self medicate some mega anxiety disorders and from what I have heard, kratom is very helpful for those, and because of that, it seems to be very hard for anxiety sufferers to stop taking it.
It just isn't worth it, at this point at least, for me to take it. It is too hard to tell if it would be harder for me to taper kratom than subs. But it is so hard to get an accurate idea of how it affects people. Some people take mega powerful kratom extracts or huge doses of it and get wicked withdrawals, and then post their experience like it holds true for low doses. But I don't want to take the chance. Maybe kratom would be a cake walk compared to bupe detox, and possibly a clever way to get off the dope ride, so I am happy the option exists for some people.
But I am going to keep going with this bupe taper and see where it takes me.
I do hope the DEA wises up and doesn't schedule Kratom, so people don't have to switch to subs though.
Congratulations on two years dude! What a feat. I hope you get a warm glowy feeling when you think of what you've done because it is amazing.
All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever tame your demons
But always keep them on a leash
