Why does our addiction turn us away from family and friends?

Because we only think about our addiction.

I'm having fun with my husband tonight.  I'm having drinks with him and listening to our favorite tunes and talking.... Something I haven't done in a long, long time.  

Pills are evil and must be destroyed.

Because it controls your life PERIOD!  Nothing else matters when someone is addicted to a physicaly dependant drug.  ***** doesn't it?

It is good to know things are getting better for you. I am so excited about getting clean. All this family stuff will be gone in a few days and I will then quit taking my vicodin. I took 3.5 today and even played golf. I am somewhat suprised. Enjoy your evening.
