Please read the forum rules before posting.

A small number of Chronic Pain patients do end up with addiction problems. The most recent statistics I read show that less than 1/2 of 1% of CP patients have problems with addiction. The members here are aware of the problems and if they take pain medication it's a necessity and they do so under a doctor's care. We appreciate your concern and are happy for your success but your warning and abusive language isn't in line with this forums policies and style.

Although I respect your admission of, and subsequent treatment for an addiction issue, this is a forum for Chronic Pain patients. We take medication (usually along with other types of treatments) in order for us to have some semblance of a 'normal' life. Congratulations on your sobriety!

I have to agree with what Splashdancer has said. For many of us, these medications allow us to live parts of a normal life. Addiction and dependency are not the same.

Also, this is a family friendly site, so kindly edit the one word out of your post, or a moderator may do it.

Oh many times will this issue come up? I know I've brought it up....the addiction vs. dependence issue....I know that I will be taking pain meds for the rest nof my life, and I'm ok with that. I didn't used to be. I know that I am dependent on them and may, in the future, become addicted....that's why I am now so careful with my meds and I think we all are. So, when someone NEW comes in and stirs the pot it makes me mad....we know the chances we take every day with these strong narcotics and we learn more each day....

So, PAlady, Chutz, and splashdancer....thanks for looking out for us..
