Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board


I am not addicted to pain killers, alcohol or anything specific but a strong desire lately anyways to be out of my mind. I used to be anti-drug for anything but I started to have uncontrollable panic attacks. So I started taking a little xanax but I started to play around with vicodin...sometimes I felt nothing, sometimes I had a nice buzz...and sometimes I was pretty sick....but I havent taken more than 5-10 total. I have been having the feeling that I want to get high (I have a few bottles of different stuff here at the house) but I think about all the stories I read here and I havent taken any in 2 weeks..because it is so easy to get where some of you guys are and have been and so hard to get back. I have wanted at times to take vicodin, alcohol and xanax. Its like once you start on one you want to add more to the mix. I am definitely trying to control the xanax as not to get addicted...but I am very thankful for that (maybe take max 4 (0.5) pills a week. I sometimes took as a precaution...but today I found out as I was in a major panic and luckily found 0.25 mg in my purse. That worked...and it showed me I didnt need to take 1 mg or more at a time. Anyways...I just wanted to say that I enjoy reading here and it helps me.

You are very wise to know to stay away from the pain killers
because they are addictive.
Are you on an antidepressant? do you think that would help
with your panic attacks?
Hang in there.
