Excuse my ignorance....

March 15, 2019 06:03PM
because I truly am ignorant regarding Opiods. I know what Heroin abuse looks like... alcoholism, that type of thing... but with Pain Killers... is there a 'buzz', by that I mean something more than simply a feeling of 'euphoria' or 'well being'? If that's the right way to describe it.

My point is: If you are in truly serious and chronic pain is an 'addiction' that bad a thing? Yes, I know.. that probably sounds like a stupid question but to me, because I'm ignorant... unless it impairs you mentally... like being very drunk... I'm not sure I see a 'pain free addiction' as any worse than living with the pain in the first place? I'm sure...it's not to be 'desired', I understand.. but if you have no other choice?

And yes... obviously if you overdose it can kill you... but if you're staying within the prescribed dosage and taking it only when needed then even IF you're addicted... I don't know. Seems to me a fair trade-off. - JamesJM
