Good to read stories like this, because no matter how hard we try there's going to be a certain percentage of us that's going to end up in some kind of accident, and hopefully they can look to you and know that this can be done.

Hi Colt, thanks for that post. Very kind words.

When I broke my hand I sure wanted to use opiates, but I kept going back in my mind to something my wife said to me after my 3rd slip. She said something to the effect of, "you've hurt yourself before you got introduced to opiates and you never even took an Advil back then, but now all of a sudden, everytime your hurt yourself, the first thing you think of is opiates." As much as she pissed me off by saying that, it was totally true. She also said, "people all over the world hurt themselves on a daily basis and they don't go running to opiates."

It took her getting all up in my grille like that for me to finally get it.....I didn't really need opiates. Also, my daughter had broke her foot about a year ago, she didn't take any opiates at all, she only took Advil. So, I figured if she could do it, so could I. :wink:

Unless it is a real emergency where the pain is unbearable, I don't think we should even consider taking them. I will take physical pain over experiencing another withdrawal from opiates any day.
