    I abuse my Ritalin.

    2
        I abuse my Ritalin, but I'm not addicted.  I get my Ritalin filled every month.  I use the Ritalin for about a week, till it's gone.  Then I have to go without for like three weeks till I can get it filled again.  In those three weeks, there's no withdrawal or cravings.  It reminds me of when I did coke, I'd get an eight ball on the weekends & was fine in between.  I can't go off the...

    Questions on addiction

    1
    I am currently dating someone who was an addict for a long time. He is currently almost 3 years sober.as never being an addict it’s hard for me to relate. I tell him I’m always there for him but he’s right I can’t physically relate. He’s doing really good (I’ve known him for only a few months now) I would never guessed that he had a problem. Now, I try not to judge but it’s so...

    Am I actually an addict?

    2
    I know this is going to sound stupid. I was a drug and alcohol counselor for several years.  My significant other is a recovering heroin addict.  I have a stomach condition that causes severe pain at times.  I have taken pain meds that family have given to me when it's bad. I realized that it feels good. Now I'm asking for them from family often. I feel like I can't tell my significant other...

    ... In all the wrong places. Ha, that's supposed to be funny. What I mean is that every addiction group I look at on here doesn't seem to be that active. Since this one kinda fits, I'm trying to reach out. Hoping to hear from someone. Thanks.

    Bf dealing with recovery

    so I am on the other side of this... my boyfriend (of a year +) is suffering with some day-to-day sobriety issues, mainly opioid cravings. He has been off suboxone since December and had 3 slip ups since - only one being opioid use- ... he is now going to a therapist but she has recommended he go back on suboxone. To me this is a step backwards? Shouldn’t she be helping to give him the tools...

    Thinking of talking to MD to stop pain meds but...

    1
    Four years ago I was sent to a Pain Clinic with the goal of getting pain under control to start working again. I am 63 now.  I was prescribed 20 mg OxyContin a.m., 10 mg at bedtime, with 4 mg hydromorphone up to 4 times a day as needed. I have never had the desire to take more, nor have I ever taken more. My pain has never been completely under control either and I'm still on a heating pad most...

    Suboxone?

    I am on the suboxone program and it seems to work great. I have noticed though, that i keep hearing about how people are on it and not really known anyone who has tapered off and has complete sobriety. If there are people please let me know, how did it go and how long? I know everyone is different. It would be nice not to be depended on anything. Its not an option i guess right now, don't...

    Opioid addict...

    I feel like I am tearing my family apart. I have been prescribed oxycodone and morphine for over 2 years now and I just started abusing it. I realized that my body has such a high tolerance for it, I can take 5-6 oxy or 3-4 morphine and barely feel it. I know that it can kill me, but I ran short last month, and I felt the withdrawals. I'm not afraid to admit that I have a problem, but one of my...
