  • I have... but that was when I was younger...
    My father was addicted, so it was easy to steal them. When I got pregnant with my first son I quit all together... And it wasn't just pain pills, it was anything that'd get me high.
    I'm glad to say I haven't had a pain pill in over three years, except for the five that was prescribed to me. Pills aren't a joke, and nobody should take them, unless needed and prescribed

  • My dad gave me oxycodone when I was 14 because he thought it was funny. I don't want to be like him so I try to stay away from pain killers. I did get percocet when I had my wisdom teeth out, even after it stopped hurting I took one every once in a while.

  • Nope, I'd be too scared to.

    I've taken prescription pain killers after surgery and they screwed with me big time. Come to find out I'm allergic to most of them.

    Codeine, Demerol, Percodan.... all of them caused my heart to slow down until I nearly had a heart attack, violent hallucinations, paranoia, short term memory loss and loss of motor control.


    Why on EARTH would I want to do that to myself on purpose?
