Well, on Monday night I took 24 Tramadol. Made me totally sick and was totally NOT WORTH IT!!!
I just gave my husband 66 pills too trash. I don’t want too feel sick anymore.
Thank you everyone for your support.
Just one question; is it ok to go to AA instead of NA?? It seems like there are more AA meetings around here…The NA meetings are far away..
thanks..August 31, 2012 at 11:32 am#107949AnonymousInactive
I’ve heard that it was ok. You can call up the group first and tell them you want to come. I’m glad you threw the rest of the tramadol away. Somebody’s nephew on this list DIED a few weeks ago from a Tramadol OD. There’s a thread about it, in case you need another reason to stay sober. And, ((((Lizroks)))) to you!August 31, 2012 at 11:42 am#107952AnonymousInactive
I’m so glad you are here, I’ve been worried about you.
Many addicts also attend AA as alcohol is a drug and they’re on a program of complete abstinence from all mood and mind altering drugs. The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.
I attend both, but my home group is an NA meeting. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of members from AA in my NA fellowship, as they realized they had additional substance issues apart from alcohol that needed to be addressed.
So glad you are here. :Val004:September 2, 2012 at 12:44 pm#107947AnonymousInactive
Go to an AA meeting and you may even hook up with someone that goes to NA and good things will follow. And if any AAers get uptight about you sharing about addiction problems, dont let it bother you.
We are all in this addiction and recovery together.
Good luck Liz, trust me, I know how tough this can be, major Kudos for dumping the drugs, you are now free, and isnt that all we ever really wanted?September 2, 2012 at 1:33 pm#107946AnonymousInactive
So glad that you threw those pills away. They are nothing but trouble and many people think that they are non addictive. Wrong! They are not only addictive, but they can cause seizures and death if OD’d.
Many AA groups welcome NA people, but there are a few around that are sticklers for alcohol addictions only. You can check your local ones and many have online info that state if they are “open” or “closed” and you can tell from that. The best way is to just ask. The fellowship and sharing is what is important becasue in my opinion an addict is an addict!
I also live in South (west) Florida. Care to share where you are in this sunshine and hurricane magnet of a state?:kitty:September 2, 2012 at 8:32 pm#107950AnonymousInactive
I’m proud of you for throwing out the rest of the pills.
You can do this! Hang in there!
We are all in this together.September 2, 2012 at 9:46 pm#107953AnonymousInactive
