I have been taking prescription pain medication for a long time now.(years) I am pretty sure that I am addicted but not sure how to stop this painful roller coaster. I keep telling myself I can stop anytime but then morning comes and I feel awful so I take a few. I have made my mind up to go to an AA meeting tonight - I don't have a NA around where I live. I am really afraid of withdrawals. I don't know who to talk to about this. I am actually afraid to tell my doctor who has already been trying to ween me off them. all that has done is me now getting them elsewhere. I KNOW it is not good. I know they are bad for me. I know I have to stop. Has anyone else gone though this? Advise?
PS I did go to my first meeting tonight.
