Who Said Addicts Have No Brain Power????

I have been reading the posts on here and we are all saying we have trouble with our brain function,admittedly my brain is gone to lunch for most things but when it comes to addiction and brain function have you all noticed we are like walking encyclopedias,we can quote verse and chapter on neurotransmittors,GABA,receptors,synopsis,opiate receptors and the list goes on,most doctors don't know as much as we do!I guess if they did most of us would not be addicted!Any way I was just feeling very intelligent there for a minuet and thought I would share.I am now going back to my comfortable state of CRS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hope everyone is doing well

Good morning snowflake, i am feeling like a genius this morning too, lol. I know what your saying, there is so much knowledge here, we are like walking encyclopedia`s. Fighting our additction has taught us so much, not just what we read and learn, but even changing our way of life. I think dr`s should learn more about addiction before handing out all these pills, putting someone on sub cause they take 10 vicodins a day and so on. Im not saying all dr`s, but some that i have read about on here, ya wonder how they got their liscence. oh **** brain cramp, ill stop here:)

LOL  eagle!!  I, too, needed a laugh!
Hmmm, I was thinking about this, and I sure hope my brain power will help me as I start nursing school next week! I have been out of high school for 25 years, and when they asked me if I had taken algebra in high school , I said no.
WELL, when they got my transcripts from high school, they discovered I had taken 3 years of algebra!     Thats pretty bad I couldnt even remember that.
Wish me luck guys, I am gonna need it!
