  • How in the HECK do you measure .375mg on one of these Strips? I just dont understand this at ALL? And I am stressing over it...I dont know how You would measure that! And I KNOW I wont be able to cut these down like you guys...I just cant do it...I have enough trouble cutting them down to 2mg...I know what robert says, but thats Robert! Not me....and I know I cant do it....

    • it's really easy harry if u think about it.
      .375 is exactly half of .75 mg.
      i cut a film of 1 mg into 4 pieces which makes .25 each.
      then cut a .25 mg in half which equals .125 each.

      then add a .25 to a .125 for total of .375 mg.
      fairly easy to do.
      at least for me it is. lol.
      u can do it too harry!
      i'll help u don't worry about it right now.
      least of ur worries pal.

      • yes, go ahead and reduce tomorrow harry.
        i believe ur ready.
        u sound like it.
        and that's what it takes with sub...
        u have to BE READY to reduce ur dose.
        today is 5 days on ur dose i believe.

        4 mg is still a fairly high amount of sub.
        it's sooo strong.
        a little bit will usually hold most people.

        ur at 4 m total now.
        2 mg twice per day now.
        reduce by 25% to 3 mg total per day.
        take 1.5 mg am and another 1.5 mg pm.

        some people like to dose ONCE per day.
        and u can to if u choose.
        completely up to u harry.
        if so take ur dose around the noon hr.
        that's my opinion anyway.

        some people wake up and want to dose right away...
        and can't wait til noon.
        so let me know ur choice...
        once or twice per day.

        my own personal opinion is twice per day right now.
        until u get down to 1 mg dose.
        then go to once per day.

        but like i said, it's totally up to u.

        • Yes I think twice a day is good for me right now....I think I feel better knowing a dose is coming up in a few hours lol, rather than thinking "well thats it for today, hope nothing goes awry" lol...its a mindset thing I think! So I guess what I will do is Ive already practiced on a couple of those 8mg strips earlier last week when we 1st talked, and got two of them cut down into (what I HOPE) are basically 1mg strips...(they are all odd shaped and screwed up, but in almost equal pieces) so I guess I will take 1-1/2 of those twice a day....(god, why am I SO nervous about this????)

          • The ONLY way I will be able to do this is with the 2mg Strips..I'm tellin ya man, I had one HELLUVA time just getting these 8mg strips down to 1mg...REAL hard time!!! My shakes are too bad when I try something intricate like that!

            • u need to RELAX harry!
              putting too much pressure on urself.
              that's no good for anything.
              only makes it worse...
              lots worse.

              think of cutting the film as a challenge...
              one that u want to win!

              like robert told u...it's really easy to do...
              for anyone.

              i'll help u out and u know that.
              maybe ur friend can also help.
              or ur employee.
              or u harry! lol.

              PLEASE don't worry right now.
              reducing is too important.
              u need ur full attention on that part.

I just didn't want to presume it was the same person. This person posted 10-1. That thread isn't used very much except to get the recipe. Will check back.

                        no u should not harry.
                        please don't project how u may be feeling.
                        remember those positive thoughts are for a reason.
                        u may or may not have any issues with the drop.
                        the lower the dose the better u will be feeling.

                        a 'sliver' of .5 mg is HUGE anyway...
                        slivers are usually .25 mg or smaller.
                        and only 'IF' needed.

                        we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

                        i realize ur worried...
                        and scared a bit.
                        that's only normal.
                        remember ur getting off drugs so u may have a few symptoms..
                        it's completely NORMAL for everyone.
                        but those symptoms lessen as u reduce ur dose amounts.
                        the lower the better always.

                        lile i said 4 mgs is still quite a high amount.
                        even 3 mgs is still a little high.

                        don't start thinking 'what if'
                        don't look ahead...
                        stay in the moment with this.

                        we'll deal with the symptoms as they arise...
                        if u have any.

                        hang in there harry..
                        it's gonna be perfectly ok.

                        • Ya know what....I think Im going to wait until Thursday...I only work Tues, weds and Half a day Thurs...tomorrow is my FIRST day back at work in 2 weeks, and I am TERRIFIED to do this drop on the very day Im returning to work...I think I am going to wait until Thursday when I know I have 3 days of no Work in front of me...believe me, its best for me I think...Im already very nervous about this...and being back at work dealing with the Public is no time for me to be "Sweatin Bullets".....

                          • being back to work is the very best thing for u.
                            staying busy is key.

                            the busier the better.
                            up to u what u want to do.
                            waiting is perfectly ok...
                            but so is reducing.

                            what about next time...
                            will u miss work to reduce?
                            see what i mean.

                            u have to tackle this head on.
                            ur letting the subs decide ur fate.
                            YOU need to decide it harry.

                            sorry to b so blunt.

                            i'm not telling u what to do here...
                            ur life, ur decision.

                            u are in control...
                            or at least u should be.

                            please remember 2 things.....

                            1- subs have a very long half life..
                            2- which means even if u don't take any it's still in ur system..

                            which is to ur advantage.

                            each dose u take builds in ur system.
                            so there will always be sub present.
                            to hold u over.

                            i support u no matter what u do!

Oh My GOD, I couldnt IMAGINE being in there and these damn W/D's hit me in there....in ANY degree of Severity, follow me? Could you imagine being in even Mild W/D's and having to deal with a high Volume of PEOPLE, people asking constant questions, needing assistance, Money constantly changing hands...I gotta be ON my game in there man, or the poop will hit the fan Real Quick!
