Are You Addicted to Painkillers? Take the Quiz to Find Out if You Need Help 

If you’re reading this article, you probably suspect that you might have a problem with prescription painkillers.  Maybe you’re not completely sure if it’s a problem, exactly, but something happened that made you think maybe you should cut back, and that’s turning out to be harder than you think.  Or maybe someone in your life flat-out told you that they think you’re addicted to prescription pain pills, and you can’t stop wondering if maybe they’re right.  The truth is that painkillers like Vicodin, Percocet, and Oxycontin are incredibly addicted—and once you’re hooked, your body can’t function without them, so you can’t just stop without going through a difficult and painful period of withdrawal.  These ten simple questions will help you figure out whether you need to get professional help for an addiction to prescription painkillers.

  1. Do you need painkillers to help you deal with social situations or difficult days?
  2. Are you worried that you might have a prescription drug problem?
  3. Have you ever missed work or been late because you were using pills or feeling the aftereffects?
  4. Has anyone ever broken up with you because of your prescription drug use?
  5. Do you have a reputation as a pill-popper?
  6. Have you ever acted violently or done things you regret after taking painkillers?
  7. Are your family members afraid of what might happen because of your pill use?
  8. Have you ever thought about suicide because of your pill use or things you’ve done while using?
  9. Has anyone ever told you that you have a drug problem?
  10. Has your prescription painkiller use caused you or someone else financial problems?
