Cocaine Addiction Stories

Vicodin Addiction Stories are Important

In meeting and working with addiction recovery patients over the years I have found that one of the most important aspects of their recovery is having the opportunity to share their story, their life experience. Vicodin addiction stories don't often have a happy ending but what ever the ending sharing them is helpful.

A former teacher of mine is a psychotherapist, who always talked to us about getting to the "essence of self" when helping people tell those all important Vicodin addiction stories. It is the essence of self that drives the person's perceptions and creates meaning in life. Your Vicodin addiction stories are important. You are not alone and maybe there is someone who will benefit from you sharing your experience. We encourage you to gather your thoughts and share them with us.

A few Vicodin addiction stories

Here are a couple of Vicodin addiction stories that describe the process of recovery. We’re hoping that you will share your stories with us as well so that others can learn from your experiences.

Many people tell us that it helps them to read others Vicodin addition stories because they understand what they've gone through a little better. Many times therapy sessions are simply a place where people come and share their Vicodin addiction stories.

You may find that sharing your Vicodin addiction story anonymously is the first step toward dealing with addiction.

Accidental, but not uncommon

Actor Brad Renfro’s fatal overdose is a sad reminder that heroin use can lead to devastating consequences.

It’s an even sadder reminder that no matter how much money and resources are pumped into drug education programs, the message still doesn’t get out. It’s not like this is a new phenomenon. There are many drug addiction stories involving heroin and fame.

Renfro, who died on January 15, was only 25. Most young users seek the “rush” that the drug gives. People who use heroin regularly develop a tolerance to it and that leads to abuse. Abusers need more and more heroin to get the same “rush” and as the amount of heroin needed grows, the dependence on the drug takes hold.

Addicts need the drug because their bodies have become used to the drug being present, as if it were supposed to be there in order for everything to function. The body can become fooled into thinking it “needs” the heroin. That is what leads to overdose.

Not a Great Night to be an Atheist

Josh Hamilton had a dream that he would be in Yankee Stadium in a Home Run Derby contest. The 27 year-old slugger from the Texas Rangers had his dream come true July 14, 2008  and he put on the greatest display of power and consistency in the history of the event. It wasn’t long ago that Hamilton wasn’t a professional baseball player at all. He was a Vicodin and Vicodin addict. Click Vicodin addiction articles here...

Heroin & crack ruined me!

by Michele

I've been a heroin addict for 15 years. It brought me so low. I became a prostitute, lived under a bridge, went to jail, and had a heart valve replaced caused by bacteria from shooting up. I just got sick of it.

I also shot up and smoked cocaine with the heroin. It was a dark, dark world I lived in. The prolonged cocaine use caused severe paranoia to the point where I no longer knew what reality was.

I finally just got sick of it. Last November I finished 9 months of a year long inpatient program. Due to lack of funding the place was closed and we were all discharged with no place to go.

Instead if using the coping skills I learned I quickly started using heroin again. Long story short life got worse and worse. I moved out of state and haven't used heroin since.

I have taken pills on numerous occasions and recently started smoking crack again. It sucks...I feel like a robot unable to control myself. It's crazy really...drugs create insane amounts or problems.

Without the heroin I've often suffered such severe depression I pray for death. Mix cocaine into that and it's triple the depression. I wish I never took drugs but since there's no point in dwelling on mistakes...I wish more that anything the obsession to use would be lifted. Don't do might seem fun at first...but for many it leads to a life of disease..heart ache...destruction...death.

I have been on and off heroin for 7 years .. on one year off one year etc.. i stopped using permanently about 2 years now and no desire to go back.

Use either Suboxone or Methadone to get clean and find something worth living for, the best reasons are spouse and kids. If you feel like you need something to take off the edge, smoke weed instead it helps a lot.

Hope for a Better Life
by: Ned Wicker

Dear Michele,

You have certainly experienced addiction's dark tunnel to nowhere and I pray that you can find relief. Addiction, unlike other diseases, leaves so many on their own due to lack of funding or poor insurance coverage.

I would encourage you to seek out those in the recovery community, such as AA, and try to cultivate a support network for yourself. Even though you had treatment, you realized how easy it is to slip back into old habits.

A 12 Step program might help you to rebuild your life and seek God's help in getting you through the rough patches. The steps will work for you if you allow them to work. When you have no resources, when there does not seem to be hope, when you feel like you're at the bottom of your rope, that's where God's rope begins.

I hope you can find peace and return to a happy, healthy life.

and Finally Remember:

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
