So now you see why I said I was "biologically primed" to become addicted to opiates.
The opiates made me feel how I always wanted to feel, and I wanted to feel like that all of the time.
I absolutely loved opiates, but it wasn't until I was 30 years old that I became addicted to them.
The opiates helped to provide me with energy, a relief of social anxiety, more confidence, and they helped me enjoy my crappy job more.
Opiates made life better for a while...
Until I developed a big tolerance, then a dependence, and after just two short months, the honeymoon was over.
Being addicted to opiates was hell.
It was absolutely horrible being stuck on a drug that was eating up all of my money, ruining my health, screwing up my relationships, and causing me to lower my integrity.
I wanted to quit...badly.
But I didn't know what to do.
