My friend was using drugs - November 16th 2011, 04:32 AM

I have a friend who stopped using drugs recently, but she's in so much pain (she always says that it hurts all over, and that no one can ever understand how much it hurts) that she's considering going back just so she won't feel the pain anymore... What can I say to her, I'm really worried that she'll start the habit all over again...

Hey Ellie, the best thing to tell her is to see a doctor, if she's in that much pain she should get it checked out to see what's really going on. If they find something, they will decide whether or not to put her on a type of pain medication that is different than the kind she's been using so she doesn't get addicted. How long ago did she stop? If it was very recently, she could be experiencing withdrawl symptoms. If that's the case she should still see a doctor so they can make her more comfortable, but withdrawl symptoms will eventually go away on their own.
