Guys i honestly need advice.
Ive been a covering addict since I went to rehab in may '15. Had foot surgery today. I got prescribed pain pills. Alot of them. Opiates, my DOC. I hurt like a MOTHERFUCKER. But im afraid if i start to take them I'll relapse and go back to how i used to be. I had a real fuckin problem. What should i do? Pic is my prescription i got today.
Your being tempted- just don't build it up in your mind. You don't have to be all in. Take a small amount like half a pill to dull the pain. do you live with anyone who you could ask to hold pills for you? They could give you them one at a time?
OP here. Yeah im stayin with someone. Family member. I guess I'll hand her the bottle. I just think if i so that itll upset her. Ive been a failure enough i dont want to being that shit back up. And honestly im afraid that if i end up needing one after the right amount of time has passed she wont give it to me.
You can't have ANY of them, fucking surgeons and their not reading your chart notes. I work with recovering addicts, one guy relapsed after his daughter handed him a glass of champagne at her wedding. He died two years later and also killed his daughter and her unborn child drunk driving.
This guy's right. If you start taking those pills, you're fucked. That is just human nature, and you are not an exception. It's going to be an instant reminder how good it feels, and I really doubt you'll be able to stop when the prescription runs out.
Flush the pills, and just get through the pain without them. You can handle it, but you can't handle opiates, and you know that. The fact that you even made this thread means you're looking for a way NOT to take the pills, and you're absolutely right. Flush them, do it quick before you think twice about it and talk yourself into keeping a few.
OP here. Ok guys. You're right. I will flush the motherfuckers. Goddamn this week is gonna suck so much cock. I cant take that chance though. Im not myself when i take them. I mean i dont even remember December2013-feb2015 thnx for the advice anons.
Fellow opiate addict with 3 years clean. THROW THEM AWAY. No excusrs. I had surgery on my chest and tossed them. Don't let your tucked up mind play tricks on you, many people throughout history have lived with more pain.
I believe in you op. take some ibuprofen instead. lay down and moan and cry if it makes you feel better. I've been in so much pain from kidney stones while unable to take pain medicine (for different reasons) so i know what pain is like. It'll be over eventually.
No problem, man. And frankly, your doctor's a fucking idiot for giving them to you in the first place. Good job resisting the temptation, that shit's not easy.
Just take loads of Tylenol, queue up some good shit on Netflix, and you'll be healed before you know it.
Another former addict here. I am coming up on a year clean.
You made the right call in tossing them, OP.
I have a metal plate in my hip, and a variety of other injuries, from an accident almost a year and a half ago. I promise you, this pain will pass, or you will become so used to it that you will barely notice.
Stay strong, brother; one day at a time.
