I had a friend who had back surgery several years ago and was put on the prescription pain medication Oxycodone. Obviously this helped with the pain, but years later he found himself addicted to the drug and the amount he was taking wasn’t enough anymore, so he continuously upped the dose phentermine over the counter. This reminded me of a line in the Guns and Roses song Mr. Brownstone from their Appetite for Destruction album, ‘I used to do a little but a little wasn’t doing so the little got more and more.’ Well, the doctor tried to put him on another pill to get him off of the one, but that pill is known to be addictive as well.
The bottom line is that it’s easy for some people to get addicted to substances. And prescription drugs have become a wide-spread problem. Most of us know someone (or we have one) with an addictive personality. It may even be safe to say that we all have some sort of tendencies to particular substances or habits, whether good or bad oral steroids for bodybuilding. And that’s the point of this topic especially concerning prescription substance abuse being a huge problem in our country.
A very select few can quit bad habits cold turkey while others go through major withdrawals. For the majority, both our body and mind becomes dependent keto + acv gummies. This is why I think it’s detrimental to not just give up a bad habit, but replace it with something. It’s almost as if you need to trick your body and mind. But often times it’s an actual substance that you need to replace it with.
