I posted this a bit down, but I wanted to ask a question and make sure ppl were able to see it. I hope I don't get the boot from medhelp for asking, but I GOTTA know....
YOU all saw that intervention last night where he said he couldn't even get ONE pill for the $20 his mom offered him?
ONE pill cost more than TWENTY BUCKS???!!! DID that seem strange to all of you, or is that right? I mean, my friend is BAD hooked on oxycontins..and she only pays AT THE MOST $8 a pill for the 80mgs. I mean...I just couldn't imagine paying THAT much for the pills...but $20!?!!? THAT's even worse than the $8 my friend will pay when she is desperate. Usually, they are about $5 a pill.
My DOC was vikes...and that's the strongest I ever took. And those were SO cheap for me to get, that kinda made it easier to not quit, ya know---they were so accessible and cheap.
I really believe that if I had to pay that much money, like that ryan kid did, I woulda quit waaaaaay sooner, or probably wouldn't have ever got addicted in the first place! ya know?
TWENTY bucks for ONE pill!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry, I just can't get over that! I guess it depends on the State you live in, huh.
Working as a bartender, I see MANY drugs go through the bar, including pills....and I remember once a guy had 7.5mg vikes..and he wanted $3 a pill..he was laughed out of the bar.
Do you all think that the accessibility/inexpensiveness is a contributing factor to addiction? Well, no, I guess not cuz that Ryan kid was paying an awful lot.
Again, I apologize for posting this...it just really blew my mind when I saw how much he paid!
