Avatar m tn ok, I'm a huge David Sedaris fan (a man who is recovering from his own addictions to pot, alcohol, and cigarettes, coincidentally). His occasionally dark, self-deprecating humor makes me cry with laughter. In his last book, he wrote a hilarious essay about a very "sober" topic: 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.

Avatar m tn m a male and I have managed to control my eating problem to a great extent by exercise and will power.However overcoming addiction to codeine and other narcotics is far harder. People think they are addicted to codeine when in in fact what they are addicted to is morphine as codeine is transformed into morphine in the brain. Cold turkey is very dangerous.

Avatar m tn And before anyone says this, I am seeing my dr. tomorrow. But I wanted to see if anyone has had experience overcoming ambien addictions. I have been taking it almost every night for a year. I am treated for depression with wellbutrin and celexia. I think the ambien started to become a problem this summer, when I would take it on days that were particularly bad and I was anxious.
Avatar f tn So if there is no one in your life that you can discuss this with, just try to seek out other people, I have found people in the same situation as me have been the most helpful and supportive of all. Just remember, nothing is impossible, and there is nothing quite as awesome as overcoming an addiction. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

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.
