Hi everyone....Well, I am addicted to pain pills. Any that I can get my hands on. I actually just filled a script for Tylenol with codeine because it is the only thing I can get. I don't want to take pills anymore but the depression I get when I am off of them is AWFUL. The pills give me energy and it takes away my depression and anxiety. I don't have any physical symptoms when I am withdrawing. I have read some of your stories and for those of you who have not taking these pills before, PLEASE DON'T! I wish I was never introduced to pain pills. I do have a kidney disease and in the future I am going to need pain pills and they might not work for me then because I have such a high tolerance. I kept this from so many people for so long and now I don't want to hide anymore. I do need help but I am not sure how to get the help I need. Any advice would be great!

This is not a true internet addiction but has the same qualities.
I've been increasingly taking over-the-counter acetaminophen with codeine for about two weeks. I'm up to two doses per day, of 14 pills per dose. I've already started feeling the effects of not having it in my body by mid/late afternoon/early evening so this is when I take the second dose. I've read all the above posts and although I've always known it can be addictive, now I'm getting pretty scared of the habit I'm developing and need to nip it in the bud before it gets totally out of control. I'm afraid of the withdrawal symptoms yet I don't know just how bad they will be and for how long they will go on, since I've only been abusing it for a couple of weeks. Can anyone enlighten me? Does anyone know if I can try "weaning" myself off it by gradually decreasing each dosage over the next number of days?
The last type of internet addiction is Cybersexual Addiction.
I have a family member that is addicted to this drug, He gets it easily and now seems to be on it every day to some extent. He denies taking the drug and hides the pills. He mixes the drug with mariranah and maybe a beer or two. My concern amongst others is he is losing his voice, it breaks up when he speaks is this normal?
There are many warning signs of internet addiction.
I'm 24 been addicted to codeine for 3years, I started taking it for back pain and carried on after to block out emotional distress in my opinion this drug should be banned it ruins and takes away your identity, iv been clean since Thursday I will not lie and say its easy but so worth it, for the pain now is unbearable but in the long run its nothing because being addicted to these will only lead to death, doctors need to stop being so lenient giving this drug out, I simply told them I had back ache and they've free willingly prescribed them 3years without a follow up appointment! This drug should be made illegal, I hope if your reading this and are still taking codeine you re-think is it worth losing who yo or possibly your family and potentially your life?
