There's something known as the obsession and the allergy. Once I start, I cannot stop. Whether it's chemical, lung-full or drink, once I start I cannot stop. So the key to quit is abstinence. When you feel like using, call someone to hang out or to see how they are. Get busy doing some chore. Listen to music. DO something other than use. It helps in my experience.

Demerol is a narcotic. Meaning it is highly addictive. Addictive drugs are hard to stop taking. You mat need to seek help.

Addiction is very hard to beat for everyone! It takes a journey to fully recover and although it's hard, you will get there. Opiates like demerol are very addictive. The fear and discomfort of withdrawal symptoms can make it more difficult, as well as breaking free of a possible emotional dependency. You will get there! Struggling is just a part of the journey but one day you will look back and be proud of yourself!
