 i havent but my daughter is just getting out of rehab today for drug addiction. she was taking a prescribed med that she got addicted to and she wanted to get off. are you thinking of self-medicating? it is a common thing. you need to go to a psych. dr and get the right meds to take so you dont have to do that. it will only cause more problems. go to meetings in your area for na and aa and get some help. if you are not doing that then that is good.

I have, weed and alcohol. It's a temporary solution, but I know it doesn't fix it.

I did not want to again but I find myself addicted to Vicodin once again and I am starting to get addicted to crystal meth.  It just took the place of cocaine..  But I am in a bad place in my life right now and if I do not get out of here I feel like I am going to end up on the street living under a bridge.

I have in the past. Mostly for anxiety and memories of trauma. I self medicated with alcohol and it got out of  control. I've been sober for years now but it would get really bad. I really did have to hit rock bottom to stop and it wasn't good.

Even though I still struggle now everything is so much better without alcohol in my life.
