I have an addiction to painkillers & don’t know how to stop. I’ve got depression and when I’m more stressed I want to keep taking them.
What have you tried to do so far to quit or are you looking for ideas
I’ve gone to an addiction treatment centre & do counselling
That’s how it works. You have a monkey on your back, as they say. It’s only job is to keep you using. No matter what it has to do. Make you depressed, stop you from sleeping, make you sick..whatever. Nothing will stop it from keeping you addicted until you stand up and say you’ve had enough of this f-cker, and do what it takes to get rid of him. You’re an addict. You should just say it, if you haven’t. I know some options. I struggled with this for a decade. I read you went to a treatment center. Was it outpatient? What happened exactly?
