Addicted To Pain Killers - January 19th 2010, 05:33 AM

I've recently overdosed on Midol and Extra Strenght Advil and I've come to trems that I'm craving them almost all the time now. I HATE it! Mostly because pain killers can damage my liver and I don't want a a damaged liver but, at the same time I want the pills. Help!! Because my will power isn't strong it's the reason I overdosed in the first place.


Everthing I see seems to be a lie. And everything you see in me you think is the truth. But, really all you see is what I'm masking the real me with. You never see me cry. Because I'll never let you. And you'll never see me die because I feel like I already have in a way.

Hey there,

Dealing with addiction is difficult for anyone, whether it be emotional or physical. However, there is hope. You can get through this--without the pills. Is there anyone in your life that you could speak to about what you are going through? Talking is a great alternative to pills, and it could help you figure out why you felt the need to overdose in the first place.

Take care.

in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

I was thinking about why and this is what I got, maybe I do it as a way to punish myself? because I can do it easier than cutting and I am aware that it harms me.

Hi, I'm Darrien, I'm addicted to painkillers too (Oxycontin, preferably Roxicet) and its a terrible thing, since you are only taking pain pills that do not get you high, stop, because once midol and non narcotic pain killers stop working, you're going to move onto the super strong ones. The withdrawels from these things are awful, and the pain you suffer is terrible. Not only physically, but mentally too. I've sold my body for these terrible things and i'm just a kid.

fortunetly the PK's ur hooked on aint the worst of the bunch, the addiction is mostly mental which means u can beat it i know it sounds odd but try tic-tacs keep a thing of them on u and whenever u want a pill have a couple tic tacs instead, the sugar always helped me


Chaos is the score upon which reality is written.

Those pills do absolutely nothing except make you very sick. There's never a reason to take such a large excess of those in any situation. I think the addiction you feel is psychological and you can get over it thankfully since Midol and Advil come without risk of dependency. I strongly suggest that since you resort to taking pills and cutting you should definitely talk to someone.
