: : Almost a year ago I was introduced to painkillers. I had done nothing before that except marijuana. Once I found out my parents had perscriptions to the drug, I've been stealing them every time I've had the chance... Vicoprofen, Vicodin, Percocet, Lodine, Tylenol PM, Tylenol w/ codeine, opium (smoking and snorting) and perscription robitussin w/ codeine... I've stole every bit of painkillers my parents own and now I'm buying the pills off the street dealers. I'm scared to death that my parents will find out and buying off the street has suddenly made me feel like a real drug user. I haven't gone through any physical withdrawls except headaches when I have to wait for my next high. But the mental dependence is so strong I'll steal and pay anything. I need help, and I don't know where to go or what to do... I'm scared if I don't do something soon I'll get into heroin or back into speed. I'm in Minneapolis....help...

Thanks for the support M13 & Randy. I'm going to try cold turkey...and if that doesn't work I'll go from there. As far as excerising, I do. I've been lifting for about 3 1/2 years. Yeah, I know, what's a lifter doing drugs for? ...beats me... But thanks guys...
