Im struggling with prescription drugs. I started taking for a medical need and now it's became a dependency.when I do not have pills,I dont like the feeling and attitude I have. I have did alot of dumb things to get money for pills.it scares me that I have no control over this. I try to lie to myself and say im in control but im not.

I have lost me somewhere along the way. I honestly am tired of living this life any life. I've lost the will to live period. I guess im asking for prayers to guide me or show me there's a reason im here and a reason to live.

Dear Mary,

Saw your post and I am thinking of you far away and praying for you! I can relate to you but with a different addiction. I do believe the devil uses addictions to make us weak. I act so not myself when I have issues with this. I pray God will heal you, keep you strong, and have faith. No that you are loved and worth more than any addiction. Start slowly and try and pray to god any time you feel urges! People are praying for you and try and draw strength from that! I wish you so much success. I am trying myself with eating issues. It is hard for people to understand. But for me it is about control too, I am trying to offer that up to The Lord and let him guide me. Sending thoughts and prayers your way!

Jesus is the reason to live he has given us this
Gift please go to church each Sunday
He is always with you I pray for you and that
Jesus can help you exercise the gift of free will
That he had given you in the best way
Go to a local health food store talk to a knowledgable
Person about your issues and see what
They suggest to take go to a gym
Exercise is great for the mind
Volunteer do you like animals ? Humane
Society needs help get better so you can
Then help others like you

I suffered a devastating end to my marriage and then had a serious accident in which part of the treatment was being prescribed prescription painkillers. I got hooked as you did and I got to a point where I didn't want to live like that any more. I prayed to God for help with this problem that I knew I couldn't conquer on my own but I knew I could conquer it with his help. The first thing you have to do is know that Gods word says that you must forgive if you are to be forgiven. Well, the first person you have to forgive is yourself. You didn't truly understand the true addictive power of these drugs (nobody does until they are addicted) and you had no idea how bad they would make your life. God works in mysterious ways and he demonstrated this by sending me the lyrics of a Pink Floyd song (of all things). I threw away my remaining pills knowing full well how terrible the withdrawals would be but I trusted God to help me through them. Gods word says you shall have no other Gods before him and the drugs were exactly that for me so I knew God would gladly help me through this. As the withdrawals started, the pain of my failed marriage seemed to hurt tenfold. I kept reciting the lyrics God gave me: I don't need no arms around me, and I don't need no drugs to calm me, I have seen the writing on the wall, don't think I need anything at all, NO!, don't think I need anything at all, all in all it was, just a brick in the wall, all in all, it was, just a brick in my wall. I was over the hump in one week and felt like my old self by the end of the second week. Put this evil that is destroying your life before God and he can help you make it go away forever. I will pray for your success and God answers prayers so consider that you are already on the road to recovery. Much love and prayers, in Jesus name. Amen
