Kelly Osbourne has been in rehab 3 times and this time she feels it really made a difference. She wants to move beyond painkillers now and get more into her career and relationship. When did this problem start? She thought it was when she started taking liquid vicoden as an early teen for a health issue. Pain killer addiction is so common today and because people take it for a physical problem and see the internal relief, it can be quite addictive.

By recognizing that there may be a drug and alcohol addiction problem this can be the best step. I see people regularly in counseling who talk about how the pain killer pills would really seem to make the day easier physically. Later this will get generalized and applied to work stress, school anxiety, relationship problems and life issues. But inner tools are not learned this way that can be used to dissipate difficult and challenging times.

This is where breathing, exercise, yoga and techniquest to change your assumptions can be very useful. Then you can be free within life situations that are thrown at you.

I talked to a client friday who was so upset the way his math teacher treats him. He said it ruins all his other grades due to the criticisms. He doesn’t take pain killers but resorts to video games to not think about it. There are always going to be people like that in our lives . Castaneda calls them “Petty tyrants”. They know how to push our buttons. But we can also learn a lot about ourselves when we look at what makes us react and what are our soft spots.  Read more on pain pill addiction
