I am a14yr old recovering from:nyquil, Xanax, and acetamiophen. I am a month clean, was addicted for3 months. Nyquil contains: alchohol,DXM,& acetaminophen, among other things. It gave me 10 hour high. I was: moody, irratable, tired, lazy, sad, didn't care about anything, and was losing friends. I view eminem ad role model, seeing how he too got off of nyquil. You and your son should listen to:déjà by, my darling, both by eminem. He really talks about the affects of addictions.
