how ya doin, war stories on opiates,my experience with opiates aside from the physical part of having no money and the physical need and the psychological craving. Bro i also have a problem with crack-cocaine,that substance is full of Atomic-War stories,most of them humiliating and degrading,not to mention spending every cent,looseiny my car to a hooker,putting my life in danger dealing with the underbelly of society.when i relapse on that evil substance i pray to god that,never again,and when i feel good again and have a pocket full of money,just a a few beers and off to hell i go,that stuff once i do i hit i cant in most cases stop,the only way being no money, no loans, no credit etc.That in a general way is amoutline .john

Well, here goes. When my husband was alive, he and I were spending about 40.00 per pill (oxy contin) and we were both eating about 10-15 80mgs (or 80's) each a day. So we were blowing through money. A friend or should I say, so called friend of my husband, gave my husband an opportunity to make some money, well buy a bunch of Oxy's for half of what we were paying for them, in which case my husband could turn around and sell them. So my husband borrowed the $2000.00 to buy these pills and figured he would sell them for full price and pay back the loan shark and make money to buy more. And so he met with his "Friend" who got in our car and handed my hubby the pills and took the $ Well, out of no where some kid with a ski mask on jumped in his car with a gun demanding the money as well as the pills. My husband came back home and was white as a ghost. Something in me told me this was not a good idea and sure enough, we were set up. My husband died shortly after that and I was left to pay back the bookie the $2000.00 that he borrowed. It was a nightmare.....

Wow, that one story was intense. I will remember that as a reminder of what could happen again to me. I have been robbed. tricked, and pawned just about eveything I ever owned about 7 years ago. I have come a long way since then. I forgot how much worse life is on 80's.  Now I am more of a hydrocodone kinda guy because you cant get that herion feeling like with oxy's.  Good story, thanks for sharing, bonus headies karma headed your way!

I fell out on a Philadelphia street once after doing a very strong bag of dope. I woke up the the ER and was lucky to have had a compasionate doc. who only gave me a small shot of narcan, just to wake me up. Before the Paramedics got to me I was robbed of my new shoes and $. I left the hospital in sox with a bus token. When I got to the main bus roundabout, I saw a guy who looked at me and just shook his head. He pulled out of his gymbag a new pair of nike my size, 11.  I thanked him profusly and this is something I'll never forget. I also never forget that  the kind of places narcotics took me. all the best

i waited in a pool hall parking lot for oxys i had already paid for, it was two in the morning, the phone number the dude gave me was fake, and the worst part was that my 3 year old daughter was in the back seat (sleeping, but still..). that was the night i realized i had a problem, didn't stop me though. just thinking about that night makes me want to puke.

My last story ended in the war. 18 months ago, as my husband drove up and down the highway to cop heroin and crack, paranoid he was being followed by undercover cops and so sure his phone was bugged, we decided enough was enough. We checked into rehab together. After 10 years together battling our addiction, we looked forward to some peace in our lives. The next morning, the doctor came to tell me my husband died of a heart attack during the night. Memories of my early recovery over a year ago are blurred with grief and unbelief. However, I won the war. I have been clean ever since. I miss my husband and loved him with all the drama of our years together. It was said to me that he had to die...that I might live. I don't know, but just in case, I choose life!

I cant imagine being able to read this as an addict. If people talking about having pills sends you over the edge what the hell is this going to do to you ? dont torture your selfs!

Yes, the street dope life is the worst as lilrose expressed. I lived in both addictive worlds, street & Rx. The street life was more dangerous and terrible things can happen in both like the ER story I wrote a few posts back. all the best

Sorry for the flashback's. Maybe it is time to end this thread before I upset anyone else. Please no more stories of bad times. I guess the good times are more important anyway.

This is as sick as it gets so counterproductive to any recovery and no i am not some aa or na nazi. I am glad you have asked people to stop responding. none of us woke up one day and decided to throw everthing away hurt ouselves everone around us and live in a place so dark you would have to live it to understand. addiction is a horrible thing that takes all of us wonderful human beings to a horrible place. It turns us into people we thought we could never be and makes us do things we could never do. I only hope that all  who are on this sight can truly believe that if you do the right thing reach out to healthy people get honest eventually all this pain will turn to joy you will have a life so wonderful and free of any bondage. it takes time but give youreself credit for every little step forward do not be to hard on yourself. I beat the **** out of myself for how badly i had failed myself and others. I wish i could just hug all of you it will be ok millons of people have been in our shoes and come through to the other side do not try to do it alone it is so much harder. if you don't deal with youre feelings they will deal with you so let people know what is bothering you open up and trust it was hard for me the right people will be there. WE ARE TRYING TO SAVE OUR *** NOT OUR FACE. EVERTHING WE LEARNED IN THE STREETS (SURVIVAL SKILLS) HAS NO PLACE IN RECOVERY. LET DOWN YOURE GUARD OPEN UP GET HONEST AND LET THAT WONDERFUL PERSON THAT YOU ARE START TO SPREAD THEIR WINGS AND FLY. THIS IS NO JOKE MOST PEOPLE DO NOT MAKE IT IN RECOVERY SO WHY WHY WHY WOULD WE SHARE WAR STORIES AND NOT SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND SHARE THINGS THAT WILL MAKE OUR RECOVERY POSSIBLE

For some people it helps A Lot TO READ these stories. And given that the title is war stories, if they don't want to read it, than DON'T READ IT.  It can make them feel better that they are not alone.  That people do in fact do CRAZY things to get drugs.  As i'm sure most of us have.  It can also open up our eyes and remind those of us who are in recovery how bad it can get.  I know it worked for me.  WHen i have cravings and i forget what that life was like, ...reading this snaps me out of it and puts me back in an ethical mode.  sincerely brit
