An Addiction to Vicodin is Controlling My Life

Please welcome Liz to the sofa.

My addiction started innocently enough. I hurt my back while shoveling the driveway.  The doctor prescribed Vicodin for the pain. It was a miracle drug. The pain was gone and I felt great; a little too great. Before I knew it I was hooked and would do almost anything to get my Vicodin. I have stolen money from friends and family. I associate with people who have criminal records to get my fix. It has been difficult to be an addict and maintain a full-time job. I keep my job just for the cash flow to feed my addiction. It takes a front seat to everything. I want to break free but I am so afraid of a life without my fix. My New Year’s resolution is to get help and kick this habit for good; wish me luck.

Junie: The fact that you are determined to kick the habit is an excellent start. Don’t give up trying to quit. I wish you all the luck.
