Our Welcome Mat

Sub Sucks and if you havent figured that out yet.. please read a few posts

Our Welcome Mat

Postby ratch » Thu Jan 27, 2011 4:38 pm

Hi everybody! Welcome to the new forum..well I like to think of it more like a place where you may speak more freely without hurting people. And speak about the evils of long term treatments without having to get into a battle over your views.... My only rule is try not be a fucking lunatic and act somewhat civil. I dont mind some insanity..I find it quite amusing, but please restrain from vicious antagonistic posting.. Just think of others. I am trying to give the world a taste of raw reality, without getting too raw so its all somewhat credible.

This is a place to get off maintenance drugs, and other substances when people are ready. If you are a pro-maintenance drug advocate, then you are at the wrong site! People make a decision to stop maintenance, or are stuck on maintenance and we try to support them in that decision and help people get off these drugs. If maintenance is still working for you, and you have no intentions of ever stopping; or if you are a Methadone or Buprenorphine (Suboxone) Advocate then......YOU ARE AT THE WRONG SITE!! Those of us on this site have already bought into the fantasy & the denial that Maintenance is the way out. Please do not attempt to sell us the same line twice. We're not buying it. We're not in that market. Spare your comments and crusades for sites that will allow you to convert other people into your world of excuses. People are here seeking help to get OFF these drugs, NOT to hear how great you think they are. We are here to help people break the chains of these addictive substances and any comments to the contrary will probably be moved to the War Zone section of this forum because we do, in fact, consider it a war of sorts. Please read the site intentions carefully before posting. In effect, those of us on this site have been there.done that. And now, we look to assist others in detoxing and staying clean.

Also wanted to add something.. Please dont try to sell anything on this site via PM or posting.
Kratom, Ibogaine..whatever.. This site wasnt created so someone can slither in and try to make a fast buck off someone else, there already is a site to do that its called craigslist..NOT SUBSUX!!!

I hate censorship and editing. I am also not too fond of religious, political, or 12-step big book (or basic Text) thumping mumbo-jumbo. All posts of this nature are typically opinionated nonsense (including my own rants) and moved to the War-Zone section of our site. If you are a non-member/lurker and want to see some unedited wars than please join and more sections can be viewed as a member, and you can be counted. I never sell, use, or do anything with any email addresses. I dont even allow advertisers to promote their crap here. I pay 100% for this site out of my own pocket and if any of this info helped, all donations are greatly appreciated.


Full Disclosure:
Our Donation count for the entire 2013 year so far has been $71.99 (Seventy One Dollars and Ninety Nine Cents) TOTAL (From 3 members)


Any extra will be used to renew the urls subsux and subsucks.com (I got both in case a evil imposter tried to copy or destroy the purity and respectful nature of our site) and the remainder rolled over to next year.

The donate button isn't working so see the last post here to learn how to donate.

THE MEMO:
- Do not post excessive amounts of pictures, clips, songs, images unless it is a thread created for that purpose. Most people do not want to scroll through 100 YouTube clips or cute animal pics to find a response in their taper thread. It also slows And if you do, please keep images "PG" or "R" rated.. If you really think a detox site is a good place to post or share porn than do it in the"War Zone" where it will probably be deleted...nothing wrong with porn, just not the place to share it.

- Respect other members jump threads, if you want to make it all about you, do it in your own thread, create a thread and say

Just posting a shout out to all our guests!!! Thanks for stopping by and reading up on us. Horror stories...yes, there are some.....because drs tell their patients to stop sub abruptly or with a bad taper. People come here to get good info on tapering.....yes, it can SUCK but there are ways to mitigate the process. We are here to help. You may PM any mod if you have questions. Or register and post.....we are harmless....but sometimes a little crazy. :P :oops: 8-)

On Anonymity

Postby cheeps » Wed Sep 23, 2015 10:13 pm

The quality or state of being unknown to people...that's what's good about internet forums. There is the ability to find answers to questions far beyond what is written in a pamphlet. There is validation from people who have been there before. There is the capacity to open up and receive support. All without ever telling a soul your name.

And that's the way it should be....anonymous. Remember this as hopefully you begin a new journey. Never give your information to anyone, in any forum, that can identify you. It's just best this way.

Our moderators have seen hundreds, maybe thousands of people struggle on this road to find the truth about sub detox. We've never met each other. What we have in common is this forum and anonymity. Otherwise somebody would be dead or in jail!! :lol: :lol: :rofl:

Man....that got deep for a minute! Use your heads! Don't give out your personal info in internet forums! :D

2016 brings a New Year and for several of our jumpers in 2015, a new life. If you would like to take part in the new life....start a thread of your own and we will do our best to answer. Please know that we are a small forum and can seem slow answering. There is a shit ton of info in the longer threads in the part of our forum titled "sub sucks".

Sub can be a beast to get rid of but with the proper taper and mindset, you can get off the shit!

Let 2016 be your year to change your life....no matter how you do it. :cheers:

It's time for my quarterly appeal for monetary help. This place runs on a shoestring. Ratch pays for it out of pocket so there are no ads to drive us nuts....you may have notice that the damn donate button is broken so if anyone wants to help out....all you have to do is send ratch money thru PayPal. He says it costs about 500-600 bucks a year to buy the names and keep the ad peeps away.

So if anyone want to send him money to help keep us going....just go to the PayPal page

https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/s ... 9821013440

and put in his email and the amount you want....even 5 bucks! His address is...

hrratchet@yahoo.com

So bacsically go to PayPal, click on send at the top and put in address and amount....that simple.im pretty sure you don't register but I can't remember. Anyways....you all know PayPal is for real....no rip off there.


Thank you very much....now back to our regular programming! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Postby cheeps » Wed May 10, 2017 7:12 pm

Go to active topics...at the bottom of list, change the box to 'all results' or 'past two weeks' or 'past 30 days' and click...then you get a timely list of thrhttp://subsux.com/search.php?search_ ... topicseads.

Please bear with us during this shit. Ratch is working on it.
