I am a 26 year old female who has been addicted to vicodin for about 5 years. I've been taking it on a regular basis for over a year. I never take more than 8 pills in a 24 hour period, sometimes only taking 2. I know that many people have a habit much bigger than mine. I do however, feel that this drug has control of my life. I count my pills several times a day, and I get extremely anxious wondering how and if I can get more. I am able to get through a long day at work with the excitement of being able to go home, get into bed, and enjoy these pills. They've given me an unhealthy happiness that I haven't been able to achieve on my own, which I guess is the root of the problem. I really feel like I NEED to get off these pills before I get more out of control, and I guess I'm wondering what my first step is. I admit that I have a problem, but am worried to see my family doctor about this. He has prescribed vicodin to me on several occassions, and I don't want him to feel like I've betrayed him. I'm also currently getting several tests from him for other health problems, so I don't want to take the attention away from that. I feel like I need to see someone ASAP, as I only have a few days left worth of pills and I want to kick this. Who should I seek out for help? Just a drug councilor? Or should it be some kind of health professional? I don't live in a big city and have no clue where to start. Thanks.
