I'm somewhat of a lurker, so if that offends you go ahead and stop reading now, it seems to have that effect in other sections of OT. Anyways, I know I have an addictive personality and over the last couple years it has gotten somewhat worse. Lately I have found myself using Rx painkillers and I am determined to stop. I am graduating with a Masters in a little over a month, and want to start a clean life. My vice has usually been sedatives or painkillers, xanax or vicodin, but I want to start feeling life again. I guess I am posting this to see if anyone has any words of wisdome or advice for me. I have checked out a lot of the links in the blank manuals, and have learned a lot of good info. I know this won't be a cake walk, but it is something i want to do.
