I have been on Ambien for the last 2 years ~ I'm up to 20 mg/day. I absolutely can not sleep without it - this isn't really the problem though. I find myself craving it every day. I want to be on it all the time. I sometimes take it when I'm working and I almost always take it when I'm out drinking. I find that when I'm on it I'm a lot more open and social. I know this is an addiction but I can't seem to stop myself from taking it. I end up lying to eveyone about it because I am so afraid someone will take it from me. I lead a busy life and I'm successful at what I do ~ this is my dirty little secret and I'm embarassed about it. I just don't know how I'm ever going to quit. I've been thinking about checking myself into a hospital but I have a family and a job that I think I would feel guilty if I took time off ~ can anyone relate to me? Your responses are appreciated!
