How did this happen? How does this happen to anyone? I was prescribed something innocently enough for tension headaches and now I can't stop taking it and get rebound headaches if I don't. Then comes the alchohol. A few years ago, I started drinking a glass of wine at night a couple times a week, when my kids were in bed. Now, its up to two, almost three glasses 6 nights a week. Addiction is slow, creeping. It takes over you before you even know what's happening. I sucessfully gave up smoking on May 20, 2010. Not a single puff, no cheating. I feel great about that. However, I feel so sad that these two other addicitons still plague me. I skipped the wine last night because my oldest son went to his first sleepover. I didn't want to be sleeping so soundly that I would not hear the phone ring in case there was a problem. I woke up this am with withdrawl symptoms. It was bad. Took fioricet to get rid of it. I think I will give up the wine, no more drinking. Since I am already going through alchohol withdrawl, just let it go and keep going without booze. The fioricet will be next, someday.
