Tramadol, Alcohol, and Chewing tobacco addiction

I need help with these three dangers in my life. After deployment, nothing has been the same. I use Tramadol to somewhat feel normal, alcohol for forgetting what happened, and chewing tobacco to relax. I can't keep going on like this. I am new to this as well. Just wanna see if this helps. I could use any help right about now...

Cut off

What to do when your doc prescribed you an addicting prescription drug, that actually helps you, but then cuts you off when you're no longer their patient? This particular drug can be dangerous to suddenly stop taking, it would require weaning and even that can be hard (I spoke with a pharmacist about all of this today, who was empathetic).

The pharmacist basically recommended seeing another MD to get more of this drug to allow ...

Do I have a drinking problem?

My fiancé has recently told me that I have a drinking problem and I am forbidden from having a drink ever again. I have seen 3 separate professionals at different times throughout my life each telling me that I did not have a drinking problem. She insists that I must have given a biased account of my situation. I found this website through google and decided to give my story and receive feedback. My story ...

Adderall overdose!

My roomate recently overdosed on 160mg of adderall XR. His hands, feet, and face turned bright red. Shortness of breath, hallucinations, panic, the whole nine yards! After about 12 hrs he was able to sleep. He woke up 3 hrs later and thought it was over. He felt fine for a couple hours and it all started again. The same symptoms repeated for another twelve hours.

Coming to terms

I remember being unusually sad for the first time around 12 years old. It was the summer Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered. I was sad but thought maybe it was hearing of her death in the national headlines that made me have those feelings. I am now 31 and looking back I think maybe this could of have been one of the first feelings of depression that I can remember.
Mental illness runs in my ...

Opioid withdrawal - is this normal and how long does it last

Hey guys,

So I spent about 6 weeks doing 80-100 mgs of Roxicodone a day. Have been clean for about two weeks now so I think acute withdrawal should be over. However I still feel very anxious and wound up all the time, very jittery, can't sleep, can't relax. It's making it really impossible for me to focus on anything because I can't settle down, and very anxious -- even just like asking someone to ...
