I am a single professional mature woman and 8 years ago i had injury to knee and then to ankle and was given pain killers rather closely together. Discovered I really really liked it. Happy feelings and loads of energy. At first for my days off and later to get thru an evening (working 1-10 pm shift) and then oh it'd feel good to have just a little piece when I wake up and down the slippery slope I fell until I was working OT to pay for the $600 a month and up habit, yet needed it just to work all those hours. What a stupid circle you convince yourself of. Fast forward five years and I am full blown, meeting in alleys to get my stash (I could never let myself run out, talking roxies and oxy) just know I was in bad shape. Couldn't afford to do more daily and was doling tiny pieces out to myself on a schedule all day just to make it through and still often suffered the flu-ey withdrawal symptoms. Finally go to a clinic for help and get put on suboxone. Yeah!! it will help me wean right down. I weaned down to 1-2 mg a day but just could not give it up and that went on two years. So one night at a party with friends my daughterinlaw gave me some cookies and yeah I was doing the subox but all in all I had a wonderful very happy very pleasant high. I was going to wait until I retire to quit next June to quit the sub but I followed up and first bought some weed caramels, yummy and I got high and it was so very pleasant and nice. Bought some and pipe, now getting high daily happily guilt free and yes way way cheaper and better on my health. I know I can't go straight, been partying or taking something or drinking my whole life from the first drugs in 69 and forward (in 2019 that will be 50 yrs ago). I was straight to have my children and while they were little, I was very careful and discreet and I drank for years becuase it was legal. So my cookie experience was like 35 years since I had had any marijuana in any way. I began smoking every day and to make long story short, I smoked every time I felt antsy or sick and today am six weeks NO OPIATES in over seven years.
