Hello everyone,

I have just joined this website, I'm not sure how it works but here goes my introduction I hope its not too much information. I have been taking pills for the last 10 years and started drinking 13 years before that (side note:I had 3 dry years in there). I think a little background is important, I started off with muscle relaxers, then opiates, then benzos. For as long as I can remember I have been on some type of mood stabilizer off and on as well. I have no desire to brag or glorify but for informational purposes I will list the categories of meds and just the total Mg's taken daily. Any other questions I will answer one on one.

Opiates: 120-150 mg/day

Benzo's: 44mg/day

Somas: 350 mg/day (9)


I went to rehab January 15, 2011 and have been clean since then. No use of any mind altering substances and yes I did quit cold turkey. It was emotionally hard and physically painfully but now I feel so clear.


I look forward to all the knowledge and support offered here. I hope at some point I can return it.
