I had a bad pain pill addiction. I been clean a year, well now I have a problem. I tore my acl, I see my Dr for surgery next week. The pain is so bad! I been taking ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and its not helping at all. I was given a pain killer, but I am scared to take it.
I was thinking maybe take half a pill?
Anyone have any advice? Thanks..

Did you go through a program? Do you have a sponsor you can call? I remember my nephew calling his sponsor for cravings/ outings where he might end up around drugs. 

Good luck!

I know I couldn't personally take pain pills again because I know I like them too much and abuse them. Does your doc know about your addiction?

I didn't go though a program,but I did seek in treatment. So maybe I should call my therapy doctor

Aren't there stronger, non narcotic pain pills? Or I seem to remember one that had the narcotic portion deactivated? I wish I know the name.

Good idea. She/he may have good suggestions to help you deal with the pain if your injury as well.
