Choice vs. Disease
Feb 25, 2004
... Christin, I would NOT start back on hydros before going to the doctor. I would not take the Sub for depression alone. It's for chronic relapsers... If you can stay off of hydros, then all you have to do is find a good antidepressant and maybe go to NA/AA meetings. I really would not be a prisoner to suboxone if I didn't absolutely have to. It works for people who just... (17 replies)

... at your choice was AA, but I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't misunderstanding you. The reason why I thought I was mistaken was, I have always thought that AA was only for alcoholics and that only they could attend AA meetings, but I guess I was wrong. I am glad to hear that it isn't that way anymore. ... (26 replies)

... Sincere, Read your post, and I've been there. Sometimes, it was like auto-pilot. I would be driving to the pharmacy, praying to have an accident, or for someone to stop me. Crazy, huh? I finally realized that by the time I actually PICKED UP the pills, my mind was caught in a ritual I had performed a million times. Pills were ALWAYS my response to pain. Pain + drugs =...

... I became very successful those years for I was finally back to my full potential, the problem was I got involved in AA mostly, and NA,CA,PA,GA and SA. My greatest dedication was to AA for I found more recovery and less warstories. ... (3 replies)
Rehab qualms
Jan 18, 2007

I was prescribed adderall for "ADD" and I fell in love with it - it made me more creative, sociable, energetic, and simply euphoric. Of course I completely abused it, eating 20 mg tablets throughout the day like tic tacs. I didn't even realize... (5 replies)
... Christine, Thank you for your words of support. Part of the rason I haven't gone to a meeting yet is because I'm nervous about it and when I told my boyfriend that tonight he told me that he will go to the first meeting with me and show me the ropes. (he hasn't followed any 12 step program, but he has been to meetings and knows the program) He has a list of meetings in our... (9 replies)
... Hooray for your one week! I know that every day (God, sometimes every hour) counts and 7 days is a HUGE The first time I attempted to get sober I argued with my boyfriend over 14 days vs. 12 days of sobriety - I wanted those the weekend I spent in rehab to count, he disagreed. Sounds petty, hun? But when you are hanging on by a thread, that is BIG... (9 replies)

Am i an addict?
Jul 17, 2004
... Much can be debated about reefer. I know from experience that the stuff makes you stupid. Just take a look at a veteran stoner and see for yourself. I don't condone smoking the stuff and I don't smoke it. I've done my share and I found that, yes, it does alter the brain/personality/all that. As far as addiction goes....well, maybe a psychological addiction. I can take it... (17 replies)
