Discussions that mention percocet

Addiction & Recovery board


Okay I’m really uneasy posting this mostly because not many people know of my ordeals even on these message boards but I figured if someone here could give me advice on how I can avoid falling off the wagon then its worth it. Here’s my situation I’ve struggled with an addiction to pain killers for years starting off with Vic’s and Percocet some prescribed most not though, then I moved to OxyContin which I was heavily addicted to for at least two years after loosing myself , my boyfriend all my money and dignity a friend of mine who had lost her children due to her drug addiction gave me Suboxone with the help of the suboxone I weaned myself off all pain killers and finally got my life back but I know that if I make one mistake I will most likely be right back were I started here is where my dilemma comes in I have recently had some major problems with my knee I just know something is severely wrong and I have this immense fear I will need surgery and be prescribed pain killers , I’ve never went through doctors to get or kick my addiction so they aren’t aware of what’s going on and honestly I don’t want them to know either I don’t think I’ll be able to make it through knee surgery and not take the pain killers and I’m petrified if I do take them I wont be able to stop again without a huge battle ahead of me. Has anyone here gone through this or no of anyone who has that may give me some advice so I have a chance of not falling back into my old habits?
Yeah, I completely understand.. How I got hooked was actually ligit. I had a medical problem.. Well, then.... that problem was taken care of and I did not want to give up the pills because they made me feel so great... Then in order to get more... certain things had to be said. My regular Dr. is VERY strict but then she sent me to a specialist and he was giving me an allotment of 10 percocet a day... Well, you all know what happens then.... You are so addicted you can't even see straight. And not only mentally but then if you don't take a pill first thing in the morning you go into severe withdrawels so I kept on taking them and I will admit.. I enjoyed every second of it. Sick.. I know. NOW....... I am free of them. Today I feel strong and today is the only day I am going to worry about... I will deal with tomorrow when I wake up!
So.. make healthy choices for yourself and don't let PILLS ruin your life. I feel like I have given myself a second chance and I am so proud! Focus on a goal for your life and that will get you thru.. For me.. It's easy.. I want to make insanely beautiful children with my amazing husband.. Find your passion and run with it!
You will be in my thoughts and prayers!
