My name is Chris I am 16 years old. I was an oxycodone and a hydrocodone addict, well any opiate ..I started when I was 12 years old taking up to 30 pills a day ...I hate telling people this ..It messed my whole life up with school, my girlfriend, my health. Its more like a disease ..I'm on suboxone trying to recover and now I feel like I became addicted to suboxone. My family is dissapointed in me ..but everyday that goes by I try and better myself ..I hope for the people out there that get offered to do drugs they turn it down- it is the most horrible thing ...I've had to go a week without suboxone and I thought I was dying, having ceasures ..it's the worst thing I've ever got on. My doctors say physical dependence is not drug addiction but to me it's a lot worse ...and I wish everyone of y'all luck with what y'all are going through- I'm going through the same!
