I was never into taking pills

I was never into taking pills. I never took aspirin or ibuprofen for headaches. I wasn’t one of those guys who took allergy medicine for itchy eyes or cold medicine for a little coughing and a runny nose. It just was never the way I did things. My sister, on the other hand, was the exact opposite. She always had a medicine cabinet full of time release capsules and multicolored syrups. She would take a pill at the onset of a headache, or drink some weird looking mixture if she thought that she was getting a cold. That’s why when she got a prescription drug addiction I wasn’t really that surprised. Her prescription drug addiction started from when she had to take some pills for pain and she just couldn’t get enough. In her defense, she started out with this stuff to help fix her problem. I don’t think that she ever thought that she would get hooked. Getting a prescription drug addiction isn’t something that people actually plan on. I know that. The planning part comes when someone gets one and you have to come out with a plan to help them back to normalcy. That’s what we did for my sis and she’s been better for a while now.

Succumbed to painkiller addiction?

Being hooked on Percocet isn’t like being hooked on heroin or cocaine. Well, it is…but it isn’t. Addiction is addiction is addiction, first of all, which means that being hooked on anything…Percocet, heroin, anything…is bad news. But the thing about being hooked on Percocet is that you can get away with it more than you can if you’re hooked on heroin or coke. Prescription drug addiction doesn’t stand out, is the point, which makes painkiller abuse all the more dangerous.


Prescription drug addiction, like all forms of drug addiction, can’t be eradicated without professional help. The bad news: Prescription drug addiction victims are exceptionally unlikely to get the help they need, mostly because so many of them are able to maintain fronts as normal, healthy members of society. The truth, of course, is that painkiller abuse will ruin you, if you’re not careful. And the only way to beat it is to check into a drug treatment center.


If you or someone you care about has succumbed to painkiller addiction, you can’t afford to wait. Please, for you own sake, let today be the day you make the right decision. Find a drug rehab center that can work for you. Your future, after all, won’t be around forever.
