    I hate having to have methadone every day.

    But honestly I don't see me coming off of it any time soon. Someone was saying that they can't feel it. If I don'T FEEL it then I would be out finding something else. I get 1 week take outs. god I would hate to have to go every day.

    Why Are People So Ignorant About Methadone?

    I am on methadone and it most likely saved my life.  I shot heroin for over 15 years and tried to quit almost every way possible, but the only way I was able to put down the dope was to be on a methadone clinic.  For some reason though I find that it is a huge secret...

    the one with Cher, and Sam Elliot. I looked up the real rocky Dennis and God it's so sad. He had a older brother (they didn't show that in the movie) who died of aids. It's weird to think the mother, "rusty" Dennis had this life with all this worry about her kids, one with aids...
