Legal Drug Addiction

Posted on by 2 comments

I’ve been a drug addict since I was nine years of age. The drugs I’m referring to are prescribed every day by doctors for the treatment of everything from the common cold to more chronic illnesses and disabilities.

As I took more and more “pills” so my body craved them to the point of screaming out for them – literally. After for years of taking drugs without ever questioning what they were for I took it into my own hands to try and get off some of the high doses of highly addictive tablets that had been prescribed for me over many, many years.

Little did I know how difficult it would be to get off drugs such as – Valium, Dalmane, Rivotril all of which are now recognised as highly addictive drugs but all legal. Going onto these drugs was easy for me, I never had to steal money to get them. They obtained on foot of a prescription and dispensed by a pharmacist or chemist.

While I realise the potential benefits of some pills in the short term. Giving them to people over a long period of time is dangerous and causes such people to become legally drug dependent.

The battle to get off or even reduce my own intake of drugs is slow and painful, it involves profuse sweating, agitation, fear and of course the real danger of damage to vital organs.

There are organisations that help people to get of legal drugs – the difficulty is finding them. While I’ve very considerably reduced the amount of drugs I take in a day, I’m far from the day when I can declare myself clean of all drugs. Frankly, I don’t think I ever will.

  1. Hi paddy just been reading your twits a legal addict I have been one since I had several surgeries for brain stem tumours. I have had on occassion when in hosp pharamists changing the quanity of the drugs with arguments so now I say get in touch with beaumont doctor I also taken my meds at my time as I have been left on several occassions left in agnoy as they do not give out the meds when I take them. I also have another demon in my life which has caused havic with my life since I went to the redress board via solicitor in parnell st. Having spent several years as a child in St Ita’s hosp being beaten druged raped for some reason this is causing havic in my mind over the last few months wishing I couold afford to take st ita’s to court as this part of my life was not taken into account for the redress. My payout was 20.000 as i said the nun was nice but at times cruel do you know if the hospitals are being covered or ever be covered for the abuse that I and I’m sure thousands of others like me have suffered. This trust fund is a joke. i think it should be shared out with the ladies who have lived all their lives out in the laundries and on the redress list of people who suffered I do not want someone to get paid for something they do not do for me. thanks Margaret I can give u a private email if you send me a link again looking forward to your response
