I used to think that about weed. Looking back though, it only made me fat and irritable the next day. Not worth it.
Thank you so much! Best of luck to you. Just nip it in the bud before it gets bad =)
Good job on weaning off! You have a caring dh to help you through that. That would suck though to just think about wanting them though. I'm just going to try and stop right now before it gets worst. Most if my family is addicted to pain pills and I see what it does to them. They will lie and steal from their own blood :( I don't wanna be like that so after today I will not do it. Every time I think about wanting to do it I will tell myself that you won't eat or sleep for days and the coming off feeling is bad. I will think if my daughter and my family. I'm putting my foot down as of now, thank you.
You don't necessarily let yourself get addicted to something. It's something that happens oer a course of time. For me I only used once in awhile when my neck pain was at it's worse. I did that for a year. After having my last child I got a script for them (vicodin) again. After I ran out and was having migraines again, my mother gave me some of her pills. It went downhill from there. I worked 3rd shift and I started buying them to get though work. (I didn't sleep much). After a few more months I could barely get out of bed. The only thing that motivated me to pick up the house, take a shower, cook dinner, etc. was knowing that I will get a few pills soon. It got to the pint where I'd take 4 norcos and not get high anymore. I confessed to my dh what was going on. He helped me wean off. He has been great through all of this. It's been a few months now that I haven't had any at all. Although the physically withdrawal are gone, I still mentally crave them.
Ugh I do but don't wanna take them. I've took them for a couple months a couple year ago then just stopped and now I want too take them again :/ I told myself I would NEVER get addicted to a pill, I wouldn't let myself :(
Don't fuck with it anymore. I didn't think I would get addicted to pain pills, but I did. The withdrawal were horrible.
Stay away from it! I saw a guy spiral out of control because of it. He got a doctor to prescribe more than he should have. And the guy was a great worker but outside of work he was just out of control. He would drink and drink and then drive. He wrecked his car so many times. He ended up in jail where he dried out. 3 days in solitary without any meds will kick it. He has now turned his life around and has a cute son.
