Discussions that mention xanax

Addiction & Recovery board

I've been in AA long enough to see too many people make the fatal mistake of thinking they could smoke pot or pop pills as long as they didn't drink. And I mean fatal. I was addicted to alcohol and Xanax. A couple months into AA I lost my craving for any mind-altering substances, now I'm downright terrified of drugs or booze, a much healthier way to live. Most oldtimers in AA will tell you the only way to live a life that is happy, joyous and free is to rid yourself booze and drugs. After 8 yrs in AA my wife and children agree.
