> I was prescribed oxycontin, 10 mg, 2/day plus vicodin for breakthrough pain. Within months, I was altering prescriptions, then forging prescriptions. But the end, I was taking about 80mg oxycodone a day. I had DEA numbers for 3 doctors, made prescription blanks in their names and filled them, not using insurance, in three different pharmacies. I ordered drugs from Mexico by Fedex. I had not yet graduated to street purchases. I was not caught and jailed, amazingly (I did this for four years).

My nephew was prescribed percocet in high school for football injuries and eventually went on to heroin. He was in and out of jails and rehabs and has now been clean for a year.

Phillipa - Yes, people should throw out what they don't need and not use more than they need for pain. Key word is "should." It's judgmental. What you don't seem to get is that some people just plain get addicted. The euphoria of opiates is too alluring to them. Once started, they can't stop. It's like alcohol. yes, some people can use moderately and stop themselves before becoming drunk, but others just can't. Whether it's genetic or characterological, we don't know. But we know that some people are likely to get addicted.
