You know, when I quit pot (which is because of my Vicodin and I take drug tests in order to keep it) I don't have as many friends as I used to. I'm not in their circle anymore and it's the same with drinking because they don't like sobers hanging around while they're drinking. Hell I didn't want to hang around with them when they're drunk and I hated to think I was like them it's embarrassing.
So what friends do I have? Practically none but then you have to realize that I'm 64 and a lot of friends passed away which is from drugs or alcohol if not other things like accidents and natural causes.
Why am I taking Vicodin? I have chronic pains and I take injections for trigger points as well (lower back, both shoulders and neck). I visit the pain clinic and I got a cool doctor. He's black but a musician like me so we have a pretty good rapport. Love this guy.
