For those that will accuse me of making any money off of this. I can prove I don't. And am willing to bet any amount of money.
How much money do you have to lose?

there are two types of addiction
physical-where you body over a period of time needs it to operate normally
mental-where you like the feeling and chase it.
They only take the drug when they are in serious pain. Simple. That might be once a month or once every several months. Thirty pills may last them several months. I know because I'm the one who fetches the prescriptions.
The problem with mainstream medicine today is that medical schools teach only BigPharma's version of health care. Rather than encouraging docs to explore alternatives to pills, they discourage anything that doesn't make the Industry a lot of money

Fact is, the device will not work for addiction, unless it somehow resets your genetic structure that is largely the core problem with addiction, it will do nothing for it.
I can believe that electro convulsive treatment would work for addiction, it would zone you out and make you gentile during the cooling down period.
But your device? It would not. As a placebo? It could assist.

i cant believe this is still going on lol, at least some good advice seems ti have filtered in here.
subs are easy to get off of, as is any opiate as long as you go low and slow when dropping your dose. worked for methadone and methadone,for me, was harder to kick the heroin or pills/suboxone.
of you feel really crappy tell your doctor and they should help you. it won't be pain FREE, but pretty close.
How is it that some people become addicted to alcohol and others don't? Some people can drink alcohol their entire life and never become addicted while others become addicted. Because each individual is different.
If you read my posts you saw that I said that they use alternatives for pain relief, only using the opoids when the pain becomes intense.
The pain is chronic, fits the classical definition, as the pain is from injuries many years ago. When bones are crushed, even though healing of the bone may occur, the resulting damage to the circulatory and nerve network can still cause pain. I think what most folks don't understand is that pain doesn't have to be constant to be chronic.
Please tell me how they've managed to hide this addiction for all these years when I'm the one fetching the prescriptions. What sort of addiction allows one to go for weeks without being supplied? Thirty pills last these guys for months.
The problem with mainstream medicine in the USA today is that medical schools teach only BigPharma's version of health care. Rather than encouraging docs to explore alternatives to pills, they discourage anything that doesn't make the Industry a lot of money. Chasing the almighty dollar does not lead to good health, it only leads to a large bank account for members of the Industry and "managment" of pain and addiction for people who are suffering. Then, when the inevitable damage to other body systems shows up, they hand them off to liver and kidney specialists to make more money off them. Isn't that a lovely system?
