Intro

Just want to say this forum has supplied some motivation to my decision to get off my pain pills. Again. Since 2004 I have been on hydrocodone for pain as a result of injuries sustained from combat. I know the addiction has made me a different person and I want myself! So in a few days upon receiving my new script I will begin my taper and undoubtably seek support here.
Thank you for all your sharing. I can't wait to get this beat.
