My name is Jamey P. I am definitely an addict. My new clean date is Oct. 14 2008. Alcohol is a drug.  I am experiencing some health problems today and there is a great deal of physical pain. I was honest with the doctor about my addiction. Always honest with lawyers, clergy, and doctors. Of course he prescribed a non-narcotic pain reliever. This is of no affect. I have talked with my sponsor about this and i have read related articles in The Basic Text. Opiates were my drug of choice and I have a low threshold of pain. Given my recent relapse, I feel that i should stay on the non-narcotic path but the pain is increasing which has a ripple effect in that my blood pressure goes up, icant work with the pain and I am straight up B#*%!. Do you have any suggestions concerning alternative medicine. I am currently going through testing for breast cancer. Thanks Bill W.
