I have been on and off of hydrocodone
5's for the past 2 1/2 years. For all of my teenage years, my mom was prescribed (and still is) hydrocodone and it sat openly in a bottle on her desk, I never touched it. I was a great student and so happy with my life, then I met my ex. I would like to blame him for my addiction, but ultimately he only opened the doors for me, I walked through them myself. It started out small, and I was fine with that until I had my youngest son.
