What a great excerpt! I had shoulder surgery a couple of years ago. I became addicted to Percocet. I didn’t know it until I started to get off it and I became sick.
I didn’t get to his point, but I relate to that “ahhh” feeling. When I got off of it, it was like stepping out of a cloud that I didn’t even know that I was in.
Opiates are incredibly powerful drugs. They feel great but will turn you into something you didn’t know you could be.
If you’re on prescription pain pills, talk to your doctor about any past histories of addiction (personal or familial). It’s silly easy to get refills. Watch yourself and have people watch you. It’s serious.
