I agree with a lot of what you said, but two things piss me off to no end. Number one, no one makes you an addict. If you are that damn stupid to shove something down your throat in enough mass to get liver damage then you are an idiot. Period. Being currently in college there are a lot of dumbasses that graduate, and because the wear a white coat and have DR next to there name gives you no right to blindly believe everything they say. Furthermore, that is taking your word that a doctor was telling you lies and forcing you to take these meds, I have a hard time believing that the doctor has no reinforcement from the patient. There are good doctors as well as bad, and irresponsible people who do not take responsibility to getting themselves into a position of needing copious amounts of drugs to live. Sometimes the need for copious amounts of drugs to live is not the persons fault, accidents happen, screwed up biology happens. But , if you are no willing to educate your self about what you shovel down your gullet, then the blame is squarely upon your self. There is no excuse, it is obvious you have internet access right? Type in the narcotic prescribed and see if withdraw and addiction is listed, it will be and it is that easy to find out .

I really could careless if you think I'm lieing or not.. the doctor who treated me lost his lic. He over proscribed zans to a girl who died frm taking them.just as they he told who too! I was nineteen when I. Got hurt at work. My job didn't want to do things the right way so they sent me to him. Should have checked with another doc .but I trusted him. I use to b over trustting.. not anymore. On top of given me 10 a day he said for me to stay on bed rest with my leggs propt up. When I did go to another doc he said that was worst thing to do with my discs the way they are. All doctors r not bad.. I have a great 1 now but my old 1 was.
