I am a 33 year old father and husband. For the last 5 years, I have been taking hydrocodone , because I have back problems. As well as xanax, because I do get panic attacks. I have come to the conclusion that life is just getting worse by continuing these drugs. I am desperate to quit taking these things. Every time I take one just function normally, I get sad at the realization of what my life has come to. I was recently let go from my job, because of downsizing, and no longer have health insurance. So now I have resorted to procuring these pills illegally. I am desperate to quit. I live in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area of Texas. Does anybody have any recommendations on how I may seek assistance in freeing myself from the dependance on these pills.
