Common Questions and Answers about Funny drug addiction quotes


Avatar n tn Sometimes I feel like my contribution would be nothing but a cynical, angry diatribe on the evils of addiction and a society that creates a wonderful drug and then deprives us of the right to screw up our own bodies by using it. Other times I feel that my contribution would do nothing but echo the advice given by others who seem to have a wonderful talent for speaking (typing) from the heart. Either way, I often choose to read and not write. But okay--fair enough, I'll tell my story.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure what my question is exactly. Does Oxy addiction (or any addiction) bring on anything like this? My wife had a mild run in with depression 15 years ago but there was a legitimate cause and she got over it. As far as I know there is no history of serious mental illness. I feel the need to protect my daughter from my wife.... but I don't want to abandon my wife. I'm trying to steer her towards "family" counseling with the hope of steering her towards some help...
Avatar n tn I know what you mean about discovering your spiritual self as a result of this experience of addiction, relapse and recovery. If you haven't already come across it, you might find of interest a chapter from the book, "Further Along the Road Less Traveled," by M. Scott Peck, MD, entitled Addiction: The Spiritual Disease.
Avatar n tn and in so very many ways she remids me of my very dear friend Brighty.... Brighty has struggeled and has risen from the bowels of addiction with her child, as did my mom, never judging me, fearing death not for herself but for me,,,what would happen to me...and yet her love remained unconditional...and I can only hope that I am and will always be to my children the kind of mother that mine was to me...and that Brighty is to her's I miss her terribly as I know you miss your dad...
Avatar m tn addiction. (Disclaimer: I don't mean to trivialize addiction in some of the quotes below- it's very serious, but it helps me to laugh at the "voice" of the addict within us. Seriously, the voice says some crazy sh**! And, of course, laughter is the BEST medicine. :) A few quotes (some from his other books): “I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
Avatar f tn im afraid to go to my pain doctor anymore because hes just so eager to try a new drug he suggested demerol last time. i just want to get off em and not go back to him. does any one have any feed back? any ideas on how to do this by myself? sorry this is so long. this is my first forum of any kind, ever. my name is lisa and i live east of seattle at the base of the cascade mountains.
Avatar n tn (I hope that didn't sound rude)What I mean is what was your drug of choice? vicodin, percocet, oxy, etc??? YOU CAN DEFEAT THIS ADDICTION!!! SCREW THE ONLINE PHARMACIES, THAT'S WHAT WE GOT ONE ANOTHER FOR! If I took this the wrong way, then I do apologize, I'm not here to pick with anyone, I'm here to get and give support, there are wonderful people on here!!!! Check out my one post, that says URGENT...
544292 tn?1268886268 The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose). Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain.
186166 tn?1385262982 Maybe your story teller really only has a problem with the one drug-but it is a slippery slope she is standing on, and at the bottom is more addiction. Let's try to keep the in-fighting down. It really is counter productive. It's okay to disagree on occassion...but once it's over let it go. Holding on to this anger doesn't do anyone any good.
Avatar f tn I want to hear from people who went through the hell of detox, and are getting better. What does it FEEL like for you, and what do people mean when they say they feel like relapsing. It is hard for me to understand what a person who was "just" addicted to pills feels, while going through the same thing as me. I put the word "just" in quotes, because I don't mean that being addicted to pills is an easy thing if that's your only problem.
Avatar n tn Gee guys, I sure do feel saved! Thank you SO much for your support and enlightening words. I am surely thrilled that neither of you are caring for me or anyone I care about, given your obvious general lack of compassion and empathy. Especially you "Doc", you are not someone whom I can see (from my thankfully limited contact with you in this forum) as an effective member of the helping profession.
Avatar n tn Did you ask for dilaudid 4 for headache/migraine relief. If you did that is why your are being termed a drug seeker. Drug seeker is a polite term for addict. Any doctor that prescribes dilaudid 4 for migraines is not looking out for your best interest. You should be treated with migraine medicine not narcotics for severe burns or trauma. The solution for migraines lies in more specific medication not narcotics.
Avatar f tn There are many, many misunderstandings out there in the world about addiction, whether the addiction is alcohol, a drug, or a habit that is destructive to our lives like gambling, sexual addictions, food addictions, on and on. There is a "stigma" about's deeply ingrained in our society. Addicts are NOT bad people, weak people, "less than" people, or any of the other "labels" that get attached to us.
1059641 tn?1277525976 Like so many people reading this, not long ago I was here, reading Emilypost’s journal, searching for glimmers of hope, words of help and a reason to think I could beat this demonic drug, amazed at the havoc it had wreaked my life and others’ lives. I had exhausted myself trying to live with it, and I knew that my only hope was to get away from it. I traveled the road from believing this medicine was my lifeline to knowing that it was, quite literally, killing me.
Avatar n tn It requires more knowledge than off the cuff information to be proficient in the make up of a drug. Personal opinions do not make spook a drug expert! Advice like he gave the questioner can be very dangerous. Anyway, what credentials does this guy have to give substance abuse information. Dan...
929371 tn?1244269113 i have been looking at medication for anxiety and so forth and came across the drug Xanax. And upon reading all i could on it it has giving me a little hope. while in person i beat down the fear and anxiety and panic on the outside. out in public or with people even my friends iam a mess inside. its gotten to the point where i dont even enjoy being alone like i use to. i just obsess and worry and cant bring myself out of it.
Avatar n tn to a certain degree addiction is a disease of exsposure. if you never do addicting drug, you can't be a drug addict. i hear a lot of talk about "addictive person- alitys." Until they come up with a genetic model, this kind of talk comes from some one who has been through treatment (and sold a bill of goods), or they work in one and are trying to drum up business.
Avatar f tn LoL, I hate this cheating piece of crap drug! Sounds like it should be a song!
Avatar n tn in my area it seems a little cultish but it beats the hell out of active addiction anyday! and thanks to the NA way i did get some long term sobriety... (in NA in my area ya better not use the "S" word, "sober" shhhh!!!) seriously, i give NA alot of credit for doing me alot of good! and i don't blame NA or anything or anyone else for my relapse after those 8 years... but i love to see differing opinions on addiction and recovery esp.
429155 tn?1205676864 Last of the Oxy ( This is how I will refer to the drug from now on.) Nauseaus through the night. Friday 6am. Pain in legs and arms a bit of nausea, ache all over, no appitite. Friday 10pm. Bed-No sleep at all ( up and down all night ), legs arms crazy could not rest or stay still, kicking quilt off then on , the standing up sitting, oh my arms and legs were a nightmare ( worst night I have ever experienced ). Saturday am.
Avatar n tn After the injury, doctors prescribed the drug to treat the pain, which was excruciating. It took nearly three months to get into surgery, so I was prescribed Vicodin again after that. I have reinjured the knee a couple of times, again more vicodin. I finally decided to get off this drug last week and it has been the hardest thing I've ever done. I talked to my doctor, who prescribed a beta-blocker to lessen some of the withdrawl symptoms.
3166043 tn?1514263618 With weans, you have to give feedback and report as soon as things occur, then the rate and dose of the drug gets adjusted, Occasionally, another drug is added temporary to deal with whatever else goes on that is concerning, like seizures, for instance, Apparently, I had a really good and expert psychiatrist, because I never really experienced withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar f tn I need to know why I have been craving alcohol. It is NOT my drug of choice. It's like I can taste it, I am ashamed to admit that. I have thought about it for the past couple of days, and it's not even noon and I am thinking about it now. Why would that happen? I did like to drink and I would drink when I chewed my pills, but I have never felt like I HAD to have it, ya know? I have not had anything in my system for 136 days, not even alcohol. This just seems so strange to me.
Avatar f tn My father is a regular member of this forum and I will elt him know your guys situation, he may have some great input on helping. Honestly use this forum to gain knowledge about addiction, about the drug she was addicted too, and ways to be helpful to her. This forum has been a family to me and everyone I have met has been absolutely nothing but great and helpful.
Avatar n tn It means that he's like 95%+ of the population (including doctors) and doesn't understand true addiction or true withdrawal (which from barbiturates CAN kill you.) So, you can't go cold turkey here. It's not safe. Print something out on the internet, several things actually, that explain how you can have seizures etc. if you quit cold turkey. Allow the man to have a little bit of sinking in time with this.
Avatar n tn and unlike my previous one who moved from the state last fall he does not know of my history with drug addiction. In less than a week the 30 pills are gone and I'm yawning with a runny nose. What a *****. Anyway, I know what to do..I've been here many times. Just needed a place to purge my thoughts. Would be willing to share my story with anyone who is interested.
