Why and how are prescription drugs abused?
“I realized I was using more Xanax on a regular basis. I took time off work to get off it. Without the knowledge I was addicted, I went ‘cold turkey.’ For four days and nights I was bedridden. I didn’t sleep or eat. I vomited. I had hallucinations. On about the third day without Xanax I started to become uncoordinated and unbalanced and bumped into things. On about the fourth day I became really worried when I started having twitching sensations.” —
Patricia (Drugfreeworld.org)

"The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken." — Samuel Johnson
"We cannot, in a moment, get rid of habits of a lifetime."
