Common Questions and Answers about Drug addiction topics


Avatar f tn If someone is posting about their thoughts and feelings about addiction, their drug of choice, what little things they are doing differently on a daily basis to conquer their demons - these should be in the social forum (in my opinion). The posts where individuals are actively seeking help, or are having difficulties with their withdrawal, should remain in the Substance Abuse forum. The shout outs at 30, 60, and 90 days etc., for people with clean time under their belt could go either way.

Avatar m tn Hi camissues, Welcome to the forum. This is really a forum for drug addiction. Although porn or sexual addictions are quite real and can have a real affect on one life. This is probably not the right forum to gain the best help. Try reposting on the forum for sexuality. On the top lest of the page, there is a link called "forums". Click on that and look under the S topics and I think you will find what you are looking for. All the best to you.
Avatar m tn The premise is to allow parents to discover whether their children are beginning to use drugs before addiction begins. I can no longer find the thread / topic, and it appears to have been arbitrarily deleted. If this is not the case I appologize. If this is the case, Moderators you should be ashamed of yourselves as this program is the first of it's kind, the first to use scientific technology, and can truly make a difference in preventing addiction in our children.

Avatar m tn Addiction is categorzied by maladaptive behavior that is typically out of character for the person, including doing things that are harmful, without any regard for the consequences, in order to get the drug. Addiction includes mental cravings for the meds, where dependency is almost always just physical in nature. It's important for you to determine which category you would fit into, if indeed this is even a concern for you.
Avatar n tn It was given out like aspirin. It is very unfortunate that it became a schedule one drug, with the drug enforcement administration tracking down phjysicians who prescribe it. Valium does degrade situational awareness as well as intellectual acuity, and may interfere with driving safety, although that is more of a problem for the first time user. I have used it (prescribed by a physician) rarely, when under extreme stress, and then only for a day or two, and never became addicted.

Avatar m tn In all seriousness, this incident is an extension of the drug pushers mentality that is fostered by the mega giant corporations they work for. That’s why 90% of state foster children are given on average 5 psych drugs. The US congress needs to expand their investigations and prosecute all involved in chemically assaulting our society and our nations future. May we should tell http://www.change.
