I used to be a pretty major pill popper, at the age of 15. I'm not sure why I ever resorted to pills. In my mind, it was as if I took some vicoden, oxycotins... even 15 advil, whatever I could get my hands on at the time. If I took these, it seemed as if it could take ALL my pain away. Eventually I started to get sick and tired all the time, and slowly stopped taking the pills. I know better now, it didn't just hurt myself, it effect my friends. Occasionally though, when things get tough, I remember those pills and how much I think I "need" them. I have a lot of anxiety problems and I'm a bit of an insomniac, I have to take sleeping pills now. I've never told anyone, but sometimes I still do go back to pain killers and I've kept a decent amount.
