: : : i'm in the same boat...let me know how it goes!
: : I know exactly how you feel. I could have written that post myself. I take the same amount every day and i swear it helps. I know all the recovering addicts will tell me i am in deniel but hey it works for me
: This is confused again and I just wanted to add a bit. I only worry about two things in this addiction situation. First I have to control the tolerance as I dont know how much Hydrocodone can hurt your body and Iwould love feedback on that but I do know that too much acetaminiphen is ba for your liver and that is the most available form I have to watch it. Secondly is the criminal aspect which is only criminal bacause the Govt says it is. I worry that if I get caught ding the things that I have to do to get them I will be branded for life. I dont feel like I am hurting anyone other than myself and Im not sure that Im doing that. Now if I get caught it would hurt the ones I love and those that love me as my abilty to earn a living would certainly be diminished. I am looking for some feedback. Addicts, did you quit because you got caught? Did you quit because of an inability to control the tolerance situation? I know that I am more productive when I take a reasonable amount of this drug so why am I wrong? I am not passing judgement I am really confused and concerned. If anr Drs read this post with your views please. Am I just a common addict.Why is it o wrong ?
what are you doing to get your drugs that you have to worry about the criminal aspect of it? I too worry about taking all the acetaminophen. Until two years ago i was a recovering addict i had some liposuction done(badly i mite add) and having to take all the pain meds caused my addiction to become full blown. I have been an addict for all of my adult life, but for the first time i feel i have it under contol. I realize it could all come crumbling down on me at any time, but for now it works for me
