I am an admitted addict (to alcohol) and have had to re-adjust my entire life as a result - I was doing very well on Ritalin for 7 years and not abusing it at all, but suddenly I was not allowed to take it anymore.

It's incredibly frustrating to explain that just because I abuse one drug doesn't mean I care about abusing a second. I really struggle to manage my ADHD without ritalin these days.

But still doctors will give me painkillers out to wazoo. I just had a hysterectomy and I'm home and they gave me 60 vicodin. RichardM says not to flush them, but I'll dispose of the extra pills properly once my abdomen stops hurting.
