This whole forum is a 'chat' place. There are no separate rooms to go to. It is an 'open' forum where all can read and choose to give input. Many here are quite familiar with opiate and Tramadol dependence and addiction.

Welcome to the Forum!

what is the difference in a chat room and a forum?

Hello I am new to all this and I don't know where to start.  I have become dependent on norcos.  I was prescribed them a couple of years ago for a back injury.  Well those came and went.  I soon found myself taking them when I didn't have pain.  It started with one at a time, then two, them three... I am so ashamed of myself.  Every time I try to quit I can't.  I have even turned to buying them off the streets.  I can't believe that I do this.  I am risking everything for stupid pills.  I am getting ready to graduate school and be an RN, and I am risking everything just to feel normal.  I have tried to cut back, but it seems if I have them I will take them.  The problem is that I cannot take any time off as I am at work or school everyday so I am scared of withdrawals.  I want to quit so bad that I finally told my live in boyfriend about my problem.  His response was to leave.  I feel like such a failure and I just want to stop.  I have heard other people take about different drugs to stop, and honestly I don't want to do that because I don't want to become dependent on another substance.  If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it.
