> Thanks for all you posting. Your story posted elsewhere regaring suboxone and parnate is quite intriguing. I wonder if even though the suboxone works on opiate receptors if it would help anyone with a history of addiction/alcoholism 'fill that hole' so to speak... I listen to a lot of people here and elswhere including myself describe that feeling that addicts have of 'nothing ever being good enough', and 'the more, more, more' mentality.

It absolutely, positively does for me. Overnight my marijuana consumption decreased over 50%. What used to last me a few days now lasts over a week. I also have virtually no drug cravings during the day whatsoever. I feel vindicated, as I always held the view that if one were to take the right drug that was really needed to treat a condition or make one feel genuinely better, then a "substance abuse" problem would disappear. No, all the "experts" seemed to say; it's a "disease", and the only cure is the 12-step program, yada yada. Well, buprenorphine is not a cure, but it is a profoundly usefuly drug in treating cravings of all kinds. Not only does it take away the cravings, but it increases emotional autonomy enough so that from a conceptual standpoint one no longer feels the need to rely nearly as much on external things for well-being. I passionately believe that buprenorphine would be a godsend in treating people with BPD and those in dysfunctional, addictive relationships. It could give them the strength and perspecuity to see things for what they are and act appropriately.
