I need help to not start. - March 6th 2013, 07:00 PM

I've normally always avoided drugs. I've tried pot before and have gotten drunk until passing out a few times, though I'd like to change that.
Over the past weeks my depression started getting worse, and I mean a lot worse, normally it just sits in the background.
I've stared taking Percocet. Regularly in low doses. I took nearly 30mg about an hour ago and my head is aching and my stomach is killing me.
I want to stop.
I want to be happy.
Without it I CAN'T be happy. I need something and this is my only option right now. Nothing else makes me feel happy.
I either feel completely apathetic or angry at things I can't even control. I have no motivation and if I had any willpower left in me I'd use it to end it all.

I'm in to much pain right now to continue, I'm going to go do something else.

Hey,

I'm sorry that you've been going through this. I've never dealt with drug abuse myself before, but I know the feeling of being so depressed that you would do anything to make yourself feel better. It's an awful feeling, and because I've felt it before I feel like I can kind of relate to your problem, or at least understand why you have it.

It's normal in life to seek things that are going to make us feel good, especially when you're depressed. But it's not good when what we choose to do are things that are unhealthy and that can end up having a negative impact instead of a good one. You need to find something in life that brings you enjoyment and happiness but that doesn't create a bigger problem. It may seem like it, but you do not need drugs to find relief from your depression. There are many other ways to feel happy again.

I think it would be a good idea for you to see a professional who can help you with these problems. I know that doesn't sound too awesome or anything, but I think it's important to get help before the problem escalates. You should let your parents or another adult know what's been going on, and hopefully they will be willing to get you help.

You already know that you have a problem, which is the first step to recovering from anything. The next thing you need is the determination to fix your problem, and the decision to seek the help you need in order to do so. You don't have to struggle with this on your own, and it doesn't have to get worse than it is. I hope that you'll consider getting some help, and that things get better for you soon.

Feel free to message me if you ever need to talk. Hang in there





A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts
