Whoever wrote that other post about suicide is WAY off the mark, IMO. You are an addict. The medical profession is full of alcoholics and drug addicts. Believe me when I tel you, you are not the only employee stealing meds from your department. It's estimated that up to 25% of the medical profession has a drug or alcohol problem. You need treatment. Those in the medical profession have a very good record of remaining abstinent. Good luck.
