Thanks for your post. I always look forward to your posts. They're very helpful.
Do you see where my husband has made ANY progress at all? As mentioned, I hadn't seen him high or nodding off for months. Guess he was doing his snorting after I went to bed at night. He tells me if he was truly an addict, that he would be buying them on the street and that I would see him high and nodding off. I know he hasn't bought any on the streets, because I manage all the money in our household (very carefully) because of his compulsive gambling problem. As far as I know, he was taking just what I was giving him each day, with the exception of when he would help himself to a few extras, which he said his doctor told him he could do when having a particularly bad day. He could have been saving some of them up during the day though to snort at night, as I don't always see him take his meds, due to the fact that I can't be with 24 hours a day.
Is there a difference between a substance abuser and a full blown addict?
What do addicts to to treat chronic back pain and osteoarthritis?
As always, thanks for all your help.
