Err I don't really think that's an addiction. Iguess you could get high off those pills, but it's never happened to me and i'd imagine you'd need to take a significant amount to feel anything. If you haven't already tried drugs yet i'd suggest not, because you seem like you'd easily fall victim to an addiction. It's normal for kids to want to experiment with drugs and alcohol, but i've never really heard of someone being addicted to that of like..advil.

Uh... I have never understood this... these are pain relievers, not pain killers, they have no recreational value and do nothing other than hurt your stomach and liver potentially in large doses. They are not physically addictive, however this has always seemed more of a self harm issue than a drug issue, so if you can be addicted to cutting, you can be addicted to this, sure.

First off, I used to be the same way about a year ago. these have absolutely no use as a recreation drug. Actually- instead they will just make you sick if you take enough! and while not a physical addiction- it is an addiction, and you should try to stop it!

well, to get myself to stop, I actually just say "only take x amount for the next x amount of time, and you can take [insert recreational drug here]". this obviously won't work for everyone, but you can replace the reward with something you would like- a piece of cake, a smoothie, maybe a new book, anything.

stopping just instantly is difficult- it becomes habit very quickly! If you need any more help, or ideas or anything, feel free to talk to me! and good luck!

Yeah I agree with the two posters above me. I don't really understand your issue with this seeing as these pills you've been taking are nothing but pain relievers and have no recreational value, but as a human we can all be addicted to anything such as this but only in a mental state. If this isn't giving you a high I just don't see how you may be finding yourself addicted. I think it's just that you're wanting to experiment, but if that's the case, taking copious amounts of advil, midol or tylenol does absolutely nothing for you. If you do decide to do drugs, stick with moderation. You already seem a bit unstable with pills which have nothing to get you high, so the fact that you may want to try drugs which get you high in so many different ways and levels, that scares me a little to be honest. I strongly advise against taking drugs unless you truly believe that you can take drugs in moderation.
