Oh and one last thing...I think someone said opiates does not harm your body it is the acetaminophin...opiates wipes out the natural serotonin your brain produces...hence, the overwhelming feeling of depression. They do harm your body- they basically re-wire your brain (a quote from my addicitonalogist). That is not how we were intended to live- rewiring our brains. I re-wired my brain and I wish to God I could go back in time and re-do all of this, but I can't. I can only fight to regain some type of normal lifestyle and do everything in my power to keep others from having to go through what I did.

And, government is slowly but surely learning about the dangers of cigarettes because now in MS, you cannot smoke in any public place other than a bar because of its dangers. Thank goodness, because I don't want to die from someone else's lack of judgement. I know all you smokers hate me now, but I just get upset how anyone can justify anything that is dangerous to your health. That is why some RX's have labels...even legal prescriptions can be dangerous. I guess that is why they call it "controlled substances." They know of the dangers as well. I would be willing to bet anything I have that the people that are most happy in this world are the ones who have a healthy spiritual relationship with God, a healthy emotional relationship with their family and friends, and have a healthy pshysical mindset- eating right and exercise! T

I'll shut up about this and if anyone want to disagree then we'll agree to disagree!

"opiates does not harm your body it is the acetaminophin...opiates wipes out the natural serotonin your brain produces...hence, the overwhelming feeling of depression"

Prolonged or chronic use of opiates depletes dopamine which causes Parkinson's, Picks disease and so on..... as far as endorphins, a vast majority usually end up killing themselves or die from acute intoxication before they get these diseases.

They only put apa in codiene which is few of many.....

Any CI drug will NEVER be legal

and I agree with you on everything, im actually trying to quit smoking as we speak and nicotine w/d is actually quite unapealing. BUT with what you said, I have one exception, it is easy to say god would make one happy after they stopped taking 20 or so lortab a day but there is a bigger picture beyond that. To some, faith is knowing that you lived for a reason, suffered for a reason and will be at peace with your god after you're gone.

Until then I think ill change my user name to Austin 3:16 :D
