Over the last few months I've been popping pills more and more, I started small and moved on to narcotics. This problem is starting to get out of control. Today I drove while under the influence of narcotic painkillers, the fact that I got home safely was pure luck on my part. I could have seriously hurt not just me but other people. This problem is starting to interfere with my daily life, and I'm having a hard time trying to stop.
