Discussions that mention vicodin

I agree, you will quit when you are ready. Remember that saying, 'You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him/her drink'... What made me want to get of the narcotics, especially the Norco, was that I was building tolerance to the Vicodin, and Norco did give me the buzz you talk about, but it wasn't worth it. I used it for depression, or even if I had the slightest bit of pain anywhere. I did have a major surgery, but the surgery took the severe pain I was having away - yours truly was still doping up on the narcotics 4 months later. I became a very mean person, looking back, I don't see how I functioned - even though I felt hunky dory! My body doesn't know what has hit it, or in this case - what hasn't hit it, mood altering, nasty narcotics, that I said I would never get addicted to - boy was I wrong.
