He guys, long time no talk.

Little update. I stopped in april from about 120mg oc a day cold turkey. Never looked back actually, dont crave em, dont need em. Fast forward to two weeks ago. I tore my lat muscle bad and the dr hit me with an opiate for the pain and then again few weeks later when it retore a bit. So i had to use 20mg, and about 30mg on two seperate occasions for the pain. I went through hell most of it and day one, and day 14 of tear were only days i touched em like mentioned.

The point of this is, it wasnt a relapse but more of a hopeful message to people who are in fear if they ever need them for true medical pain again for short term.

I had ZERO issues on those occasions other then that dose actually made me sick and also the buzz wasnt what it was, it was like the first time i took em and they sucked. Made me hate them even more now.  I been fine with 800 prescription motrin here and there and healing fine.  So guys with enough time under your belt and the right state of mind, there is life after these pills and there is a good use if your hurt bad enough. Say strong an focused in your battles.  

Also as for paws and things of that nature, after near 6 months i didnt have any of it. Like i said i dont believe in it, the mind will manifest if you let it. Now i jsut gotta learn to take it easy in the gym for a bit. Keep getting crippled LOL!

being addicted has its ups to. For instance it will make you research every thing you put into your body, it will make you cautious and more health conscious down the road as well. It will also make you face your pain more instead of taking something for it. I much rather feel the pain now and learn from it and also know when its trully healed. Im sore as sh1t today but i could care less about numbing it, its tolerable again. Stay strong everyone and dont live in fear, pills are non living entities, they dont control you, you control you through good and bad.

Great post.   Thanks so much for sharing ---- some of us really need to hear from you 'veterans' just what we can expect for short term use if we had to.  We worry about getting re-addicted.  This gives us hope.  All the best.
