I too was once addicted to opiates.
In fact, I really believe that I was "biologically primed" to become addicted to opiates.
When I was 22, I tried opiates for the first time.
My friend Morgan had hurt his shoulder and was prescribed Vicodin, and he gave me one of his pills to try while I was hanging out at his apartment by the beach.
We both took Vicodin at the same time, but I'll never forget how different of reactions we had to the same drug.
Vicodin and other opiates are central nervous system depressants, so they're supposed to make you tired.
Well, that's exactly what happened to my friend Morgan.
Within 45 minutes of us taking the Vicodin together, he was asleep, nodding forward in the chair he was sitting in, and I'm pretty sure he was drooling a little.
I had a completely opposite reaction.
The opiates gave me ENERGY...
And lots of it.
But that wasn't all. I also felt happier, more confident, more excited about life, and the sky was a new shade of blue!
