About Me: Male, Atlanta, GA, member since Sep 2012
I'm 36 years old. I've been taking prescription pain meds off and on for nearly six years. For the past two years has been the worst. I'm not prescribed meds. I spend between $150-300 a week. Sometimes I can go four days with out them. Once I have a hook up, I get as ma
[More]ny as I can. Thinking I'm going to stretch them out, I end up taking 10-20 in one day. Depending on the dosage. Next day I have little or none left. So I'm looking for more. By my third day without them, I'm feeling frustrated, moody. My legs begin to jerk at night. I tense up. Anxiety is through the roof. I just want to scream. Sometimes want to cry. I tell myself I am done with it. I'm going to beat this addiction. I've gone two weeks at the most without it. Only because I can't find any. Then the next thing I know, I got the hook up and it starts all over. I really do want to quit. But I have to do it cold turkey. No clinics or doctors. I want my life back. This is no way to live.
