I need help I have an addiction to Vicodin?

Question by peacelikeariver08: I need help I have an addiction to Vicodin?
Okay maybe Addiction is a strong word cause I can go without it, but it seems like when I’m on it life is so much easier, I can take care of my baby happily. I don’t argue with my man. I can get the house cleaned. Everything is okay. How do I find this inner peace and energy without it?

    Seek professional help. You DO have an addiction. Try webmd.com and take the test.

    You just described an addiction, tell your doctor, Vicodin is a prescription medication and you should be getting it from a doctor, tell your doctor you need to quit and why.

    Wow thats intense. First of all you need to tell someone personally and seek help. Rehab is alittle over the top but a drug addiction help center will focus on helping you get over your ” addiction”.

    This is something you have to do for yourself. No one can tell how to change if you don’t want to. When the time is right you’ll know. Just make it fast otherwise you’ll look like my avitar lol. Best of luck with your struggle, your in my prayers tonight.

    If your ready to make a change they have plenty of rehab centers and phsychologist for support. Let your family know if you haven’t already they’re the best ppl to turn to for help in times like these 🙂

    I would talk to your doctor, maybe see a therapist. There are other ways to deal with stress and life in general.

    the House comment was funny, but i wouldn’t recommend following the lead of a made us character.

    You need to see you Dr., explain this to him/her and see if there is a medicine you can take that will help you but without being a Narcotic. You may be ok right now with it – but if your asking this question that means somewhere inside you, you know it isn’t right and why would you want to risk something going wrong when you have and are caring for you baby?!

    Good luck!

    omg i am the same way. and it started just like how you described it.
    narcotics give you a feeling of selfworthy-ness. i felt like supermom on them. i could do things a lot better and i was so happy. but, then after a while i couldnt go without them. i didnt feel good enough without them. i would quit now befor you cant go without them. It only gets harder the longer you go.
    it isnt easy. i know.
    good luck

    Talk to your doctor. He or she should be able to refer you to a counselor in your area who deals with substance use issues. In treatment, you will learn what triggers your use and find alternative, healthier behaviors to replace the use of Vicodin. It may not be “dependence” at this point, but if you are taking Vicodin for anything other than physical pain at this point, it would at least be considered “abuse”. Please get help before your situation gets worse.

    smoke crack, that`s WAY better than taking a pain killer…
    OK, now that I made a joke, it`s time to talk seriously, you might be taking them to relieve a small, yet constant pain that keeps you irritated (this is just me guessing) or you might be dealing with some pains that were somehow put in there by your mind (psychological pain, being expressed through physical pain… I think…) aether ways, you have two choices, tell this to someone and… keep up with vicodin, aether way, you`ll be a little like dr. house

    It sounds like you have more of a mental dependence on the medication than a physical addiction if you could go without it. I can relate to what you are asking though. Its not easy to stop taking the medication, especially if it is bringing you this kind of effect. It also sounds like you have an adverse affect to the medication (ie it makes you energetic and content). I would find something that you can substitute for the medication (something not related to medication) that would give you this same feeling of energy and contentment. You definitely do not want to become dependent and addicted, its a much harder path to take to get off of the medication and have to deal with everything.

    Good luck, I hope you find that something!
