I think abuse is recognizable by the way it destroys a person's ability to function, whereas use is just use, i.e., you use, but you can still function normally? Has this been said in this thread already? If yes, sorry. with shame I must admit I didn't read every single response to the original post

Nowadays I usually view myself as anti-alcohol but those of you who met me in January and a few days ago saw that I did drink, so perhaps I need to soften my views on alcohol because I did have a good time  :D

Abuse of prescription drugs is about to exceed the use of illicit street narcotics worldwide, and the shift has spawned a lethal new trade in counterfeit painkillers, sedatives and other medicines potent enough to kill, a global watchdog warned Wednesday.

Prescription drug abuse already has outstripped traditional illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine and Ecstasy in parts of Europe, Africa and South Asia, the U.N.-affiliated International Narcotics Control Board said in its annual report for 2006.

In the United States alone, the abuse of painkillers, stimulants, tranquilizers and other prescription medications has gone beyond "practically all illicit drugs with the exception of cannabis," with users increasingly turning to them first, the Vienna-based group said.

Philly, you know, I saw that article. 
Isn't it about time for all those closet users/abusers of prescription drugs to throw wide the doors?  Just saying. 
And, Philly, you saw the drugs that our friend Jim had before he died.  What you didnt see were all the pills we flushed down the toilet.  This guy may have been over prescribed .....way over.  I have talked to OTHER people who know about his doctor and they all have horror stories to tell about his fast and loose ways with the prescription pad.
 But you know, part of me was ...like.... hey wait..... those are great painkillers!!! And you just flushed hundreds of dollars worth.

Prescription drug abusers are the worst.

Mostly because they call my job at all hours trying to get their doctors (or any random doctor) to prescribe them something.

This one doc finally called something in for this one extremely annoying woman... and then he called me back and said, "Well... I've called her in a prescription for painkillers.  If she calls you back, tell her it's at the pharmacy.  Don't tell her it's 1000 mg of ibuprofen."

Sometimes I love doctors.

Yes, and I'm still rather mad at you and Kurt about that.  At least you left me with some klonopin.

What exactly was in the flush department, pray tell?  Morphine?

I can't tell you his name, I'm sorry to say... I would be fired from my job...

But he's a really cool guy... for he taunts the drug seekers.
