I'll tell you what is an amazing feeling...working for a living, paying your bills, and taking care of your responsibilities. Can't beat it. Many of you will never know that feeling.

Oh my God all you people who are against tripping, get over yourselves, cough medicine abusers are gonna trip if they want to, and there is nothing you can do about it. I do disagree with operating a car however, and moonstruck I am sorry about your father. But.. half of you people on this site don't know how the trips feel. They are completely amazing. So, until you know what it is like, stop your bitching.

I think I would go through the proper channels first and try to get away from the abuse.I certainly wouldn't be foolish and stupid with over the counter drugs that wil do nothing more than ruin your life further.Your call though,You want to be stupid,knock yourself out.

Your pregnant and doing this nonsense?Then you really are stupid.Maybe you should go to see someone and get some help.You wanna kill yourself that's bad enough,but this child is in danger now too.You need some real help.Try to find some for you and your baby's sake.

I'm 21 with a fiance and 19 month old. I take six benadryl and half to one bottle of Vicks cold and flu syrup a night. No one knows because I'm ashamed. I take it to fall asleep so I don't have to think before I fall asleep. I'm not looking for judgement or any other advice other than what I'm asking for. Has anyone noticed if the meds make you gain weight? Whether it be in bloating or water retention? I need to know if this is the cause of my gain. If so, I will discontinue the usage. It's why I stopped drinking. Drinking made me eat like crazy the day after.

Yeah, because every 15 year old with a history of abuse is going to know exactly how to get protection from child services. You sound like you've had a little DXM yourself, idiot.

I've slept the past two nights sober. No pills, medicine or vodka. A friend simply asked me to stop and because he means so much to me, I did.

Do You All Know How Stupid You Sound? People Talk About Being Taken Seriously Then ACT SERIOUSLY. You All Should Be Damned Near Ashamed Of Yourselves. If You Want To Get High; Get High On Then Knowlege On What Your Doing To Yourself. Or Don't Even Think Yourself Consider Your Family,What Would Happen To Them If Heaven Forbid You Died? How Would They Take It Knowing You Passed Over A Stupid High? Makes No Sense To Me. IF YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT YOURSELF CONSIDER EVERYONE ELSE YOUR HURTING IN THE FUCKING PROCESS.
