Well, I’m getting my wisdom teeth out, which I’m nervous about to begin with. But my question deals with the after effects; i’m going to be on vicodin, or codeine, or some similar painkiller. Now, I’ve never had anything stronger than ibuprofren for pain, so I don’t know what the experience is going to be like.
I know that when people talk about vicodin, they joke around like “I love that stuff!” and “dude, I could get hooked on that stuff.” Why? What’s the vicodin experience like? Am I going to get “fucked up”? I hear about celebrities getting hooked on “painkillers,” so it must feel good.
The main reason I’m nervous is that I can no longer smoke marijuana or even drink a little bit of alcohol - the second I start to feel the effects, I have an anxiety attack. When I feel vicodin kick in, am I going to freak out?
