I regularly come on these discussion boards looking for advice and comfort from other narcotic pain med users, but this is my very first post.
I have been taking various different narcotic pain killers for over 2 years. I have a degenerative disc disease and suffer chronic back pain. I was started with 5/325mg percocets which i used as needed and a little over a year and half later was up to 5 or 6 oxycontin 30mg a day .... which works out to roughly 30 percocet or more depending on the day....just to put it in perspective..
Anyway I never realized i was physically addcited to them until I ran out of a prescription sooner than expected. The withdrawls were horrific and only made it to Day 3 before calling my doctor and getting a new prescription. I did make the decision to try to come off of them a couple months later and slowly weaned off over a period of about six weeks. It was effective and although I have never taken another percocet or oxycontin to date, I was only taken off one narcotic painkiller and put on another.
There hasnt been more than a day or so in the last 2 1/2 years where I have spent a day sober, with no narcotic. I feel like pain killers have such an addictive hold on me that I will never be able to stop. The worst part is I know I will have chronic pain to deal with for the rest of my life, and with all the various unsuccessful treatments I feel like narcotic painkillers are the only option i have to deal with the pain!
Thanks to every person that has written a success story about there own battle with narcotic pain medication, gives me hope that one day I will be able to do the same :-)
