    I Hate narcotic pain pills. Wisdom teeth out got perc 5/325. After 3 weeks i went back for a follow up visit. My dentist asked me if i wanted more. Remember this is three weeks later my pain stopped after 3 days. Of course i said yes cause i liked them and how they made me feel,after that i haven’t stopped using them since. I feel they are? perscribed to freely, almost like some doctors are unaware.

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know? You are the only way to God. So now I want to quit disobeying You and start living for You.? Please forgive me, change my life and show me how to know You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    I think anything narcotic should only be given to anyone under 18, during hospital stays in exponentially regulated rates. These things are in the face of kids everywhere, like never before, its going to kill and or ruin the lives of hundreds of thousands if not millions. The Government, state and local law enforcement are now aware and worried, but I really think even given their state of alert, they only are really aware? of a small fraction. I would say One in 10 households don’t have them.

  • waitingforagoodguy says:

    I have two types of arthritis. With out these pain meds I couldn’t walk much less show interest? in anything else, because when you are in pain that takes presidence over everything else. When I don’t have my pain meds I feel painful and flat. Listless.I worry that I may enjoy my pain meds too much. They seem to be the only comfort I experience in this dreary life. Without pain meds I am depressed and lethargic. With them…. I am invinsible. If they cut mine out…. I wouldn’t make it.

  • AntPresutti says:

    PRESCRIBED YOU MOST LIKELY NEVER NEEDED THEM, ‘DOING PILLS’ C’MON THIS LOOKS SO BAD FOR ANYONE? WHO HHHHAAASSSS TO ‘TAKE’ THEM. NAMING EVERY OTHER PAIN PILL IS NOT A SIMPLE ADDICT? GIRL PROBLEMS? THESE ARE PAIN PAIN PAIN MEDICATIONS! NOT A CRUTCH FOR THESE PATHETICALLY WEAK MINDED DRUG ADDICTS.

  • AntPresutti says:

    BUT NONE OF THESE PEOPLE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT REAL PAIN, THESE ARE DRUG SEEKERS WHO ARE TAKING MEDS THEY NEVER? ACTUALLY NEEDED, 90% OF THESE MORONS WITHOUT A DOUBT ARE HABITUAL DRUG USERS WHO HAPPENED TO MOVE TO PAIN MEDS FOR THE AFFECT NOT FOR INJURIES. THEY ARE SO UNEDUCATED ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE (GUARANTEE STILL) ARE TAKING IT IS PAINFULLY (lol) OBVIOUS THEY NEVER NEEDED THEM, WHEN YOU SEE A SPECIALIST YOU ARE AWARE OF YOUR EXACT INJURY AND MEDICATIONS, WHEN YOU CANT PRONOUNCE WHAT YOU WERE

  • AntPresutti says:

    THESE TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS ARE THE ONLY REASON WHY PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION IS NOW BECOMING IMPOSSIBLE FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH REAL PAIN, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. THE PEOPLE IN THIS VIDEO BEYOND LITERALLY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. I DONT KNOW WHICH WAS COOLER FOR HIM ‘BEING JUMPED or TAKING ‘WATSON’s’ (WHICH IS A BRAND NOT A SPECIFIC MEDICATION’ THEY MAKE YOU FEEL SLOW? ACTUALLY MOST PAIN MEDICATIONS GIVE YOU A PEP IN YOUR STEP WHEN U REALLY HAVE PAIN?

  • SmokinChiva says:

    there are doctors in new? mexico who give thousand percs at a time” .. lol Im in new mexico and I havent got shit.

  • TheWICCACHANNEL says:

    i agree with you.if a patient has proof of the illness. i would treat them for it.what is not told here is that combo drugs like lortab and oc are very good for those that otherwise be forced to lay in bed with no quality of life.
    these drugs give them that ability and people? should read for themselves what the dangers are and control that danger by education.
    i am also a pain patient myself,and after three years on lorab, i am not addicted at all because i monitor my intake

  • MrArtless says:
