... e cravings, but they subsided. I knew I would never be able to taper, because if I had them, I would certainly take them, plus, I don't think a taper works with opiates and opioids. I can tell you that after the first 5 days, my mind began to clear and I started feeling better with each day. ... (7 replies)
... What is wrong with you? You are an addict! Just like I am! I have done the same thing as far as "creating problems" to get pain meds- was always too afraid to call in scripts or steal script pads (for the sake of not going to jail and leaving childen behind) but never-the-less, I came up with ways to get them.
