I had WLS on Feb 1 2006. I had no complications (so I thought) and was loosing weight rapidly. I got that boost of self-esteem and started going out with some old friends to the clubs and such. I was introduced to some new drugs and that was it for me. I was a full-blown drug addict within 2 months. I had experimented with different drugs through out my life and never had a problem stopping. Things were different now. I no longer had food to fall back on. I didn't want to accept the idea that I had been an addict all my life and I just used food to sooth myself and to feed my addict brain. When that was taken away I found something else and unfortunately that was a drug. I am wondering how common this is. When I was in rehab there were 3 other people there who had also had the surgery. What do you think? Do you think there is a relationship between the surgery and addiction?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
