In Reply to: girlfriend addicted to lortab posted by cnbj on July 03, 2000 at 00:20:06:

: my girlfriend has been on lortab or some sort of pain killer for the past year. she keeps making excuses why she wont get off of them and finally after a relationship of 4 yrs, i am leaving her as a result of her adiictive behaviors. yrs ago she was on drugs(before I met her) and i feel the pills are just a substitute for drugs. i try to tellher they are slowly killing her making her feel worse not better but she doesnt listen. she thinks because i have never used drugs or ad low self esteem i dont know how she feels and maybe that is true but i am on the outside looking in and can see things more clearly than she. and just because i have never ussed drugs or taken pills doesnt mean i dont have any idea of what i would want for myself if i had. am i just tripping do i need to try to let her feel her own way off of the things? i've been reading the board and cold turkey may be painfull but i believe its the only way. she's looking for a quick fix to this addiction and i keep telling her there is none. please respond anyone who has any useful advice.
Hello - my name is Patty & I feel for BOTH you & your girlfriend. You indeed have a very long road ahead. I am also addicted to hydrocodone & know first hand how it WILL ruin lives. Keep in mind however, if your girlfriend isn't ready to quit- it will not happen. She will only get better at the lies & if you are threatening her with the relationship, she WILL lie. All I can suggest is research the net for information, one good site is www.prescriptionabuse.org/recabuse.html Here you'll find stories of other abusers which has helped me a great deal. You'll also need support for yourself because its hell for loved ones to go through also. Good luck and if I can help further please let me know.
