Yea,I have been on methadone for 19 years.During that time I have missed dosing probably 30 days during the 19 years.I have tried to get off of methadone several times and I can honestly say,I had rather be dead than to live my life without methadone.I don't get high anymore,but I promise you I can tell you when 24 hours has past by.I honestly can say I have tried to beat it,but after being clean for 14 days,I did'nt have the energy to even get a shower.I personelly don't know anyone that has been on 100 or more milligrams a day and can say I have'nt took any methadone in 30 days and I feel good.What is the % of people that has honestly beat this demon.I have never tried herion,but if it is anything like methadone,I feel sorry for them.I am now on 40 milligrams a day and I can lead a normal life.I wish I could talk with some people that has beat methadone,I admire anyone that has the grit to say "I took methadone for 10 years,but I made it up in my mind I was going to quit and I did"

I have been on 100 mg. methadone for about 7 years. Was no problem paying $350 per mo. and picking up 2 week or 30 day supply but now I have been out of work for almost 2 years and my nest egg is gone. Have no energy now. Getting older and am weak and scared.
