    Default Eminem's pill addiction, rap gets him high

    Eminem Opens Up About 20-Pill-a-Day Addiction
    Monday May 4, 2009




    In the June/July issue of Vibe, Eminem opens up about the drug addiction that nearly killed him.


    "It's no secret I had a drug problem," he writes in the first-person story. "If I was to give you a number of Vicodin I would actually take in a day? Anywhere between 10 to 20. Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don't even know what I was taking."
    After a 2005 stint in rehab, he says he relapsed and nearly died from an overdose after ingesting unidentified blue pills an acquaintance had given him.
    "My doctor told me those mysterious new pills were methadone, which is used to wean heroin addicts off dope," he says. "Had I known it was methadone, I probably wouldn't have taken it. But as bad as I was back then, I can't even say 100 percent for sure. My doctor told me the amount of methadone I'd taken was equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin. Even when they told me I almost died, it didn't click."

    After detoxing, he suffered a knee injury that required surgery, but because of his drug abuse, he was not prescribed pain killers.
    "I started looking around my house to see if I had a stash box of Vicodin," he says. "I'm ransacking my house, finally find something in the basement, in a little napkin, seven and a half Vicodin — the big extra strength ones — and a few Valium."

    After relapsing a second time, he finally came to terms with the fact that he is an addict.
    "It never once hit me that drug addiction runs in my family," he says. "Now that I understand that I'm an addict, I definitely have compassion for my mother. I get it."
    Sober for a year, the rapper - who drops his new album, Relapse, May 19, says, "I wanted to make an overall statement — I'm back. It was a slow process. You gotta remember I hadn't recorded a song sober in seven years. So it took me awhile to even feel like I could record a song sober ... I don't know the last time I shot a video sober, without drinking or taking anything. It's been years."

    Adds the rapper, "I almost feel like a little kid again with rap. I wanna play around with different flows. If I don’t feel like it's what I'm fully capable of, if there's one weak line, I wanna change it. Rap was my drug. It used to get me high and then it stopped getting me high. Then I had to resort to other things to make me feel that ... now rap's getting me high again."

    Lol I remember the Anger Management tour and how he got the entire crowd to chant "Fuck You, Debbie"... Man times have changed.

    Is this why his new music kinda sucks? I'm a big Em fan, but just can't get down with this new crap!

    He's just not attractive anymore but I guess if your recovering from substance abuse, you would expect physical changes.

    WARNING: "GoldDust Manifesto" ahead! Proceed at own risk of extreme boredom.
    OK, obviously taking 10-20 Vicodins a day is not good--at all. You can certainly be physically-dependent/addicted to Vicodins on that particular "per-day" amount if you've been doing it eveyday for a long time. But, that REALLY is NOT by any means a really significant Opiate addiction, at all. It would be a quite mild physical dependency/addition, & withdrawal, comparatively speaking to what most addicts deal with. I mean, for cripes' sake, the NORMAL, USUAL (in most cases) doctor-prescribed amount of Vicodin per day is 8 pills! So if he's taking 10 a day? OOOOOOH WOW THAT'S HARDCORE MAJOR ABUSE FOR YA!!!! -NOT!!! I mean, again, don't get me wrong, i am NOT REALLY belittling his addiction or usage; in fact, i am actually GLAD for him, or for anyone, who does NOT have a raging Opiate addiction like i did. Opiate addiction is nothing short of pure hell. But i just smell something fishy here.

    Either he is lying about the amount of pills he was taking (probably was a LOT more--especially if it landed him in Rehab. People just don't go to Rehab for using "only" 10-20 daily Vicodins, one of the most mild Opiates there is.)

    Or else
    he just didn't really even have an addiction to Vicodin/Opiates & is just making this whole addiction-to-Opiates story up for attention. (which, if he didn't have one, is, again, a good thing of course).

    But something here is BS.

    I was taking, at my height of my addiction to Opiates (hold on to your hats!, people! haha), usually about 400 mg of Oxycodone a day--and sometimes even MORE, like 800 mg+. (!!!!) With Oxy being roughly twice as strong as Hydrocodone (the Opiate that's in Vicodin), what i was at least taking daily was equal to 800 mg per day of Hydrocodone, and sometimes as much as 1,600 per day of Hydrocodone. (AGAIN: !!!!) Eminem is saying he was taking between 50-100 mg per day of Hydrocodone. NOT a big deal in the world of Opiate addiction. (Which, again, is lucky for him.) Withdrawal wouldn't have been that brutal, and he could've pretty easily stopped without Rehab & without too much discomfort.

    Now, at my level of approx. 8-16x the daily amount of Opiates that he was taking, if even I took enough of any Opiate (in his case it was Methadone) that was equal to 4 BAGS OF HEROIN even I would be dead of an O.D.! A person on (a relatively extremely measely) 10-20 Vicodins a day?? They'd be DEAD sooooo very quickly, no questions asked, no hope of survival, just no doubt about it. So, if nothing else, Eminem is a LIAR about the fact that he took that much Methadone! (if his tolerance was, as he says, in fact just 10-20 Vikes per day. --and if it wasn't, then he's still a LIAR--about that fact!)

    ANYWAY, overall, i may be mean or out-of-line for saying this, but, IMHO: EMINEM IS A WHINY WIMP WHO IS JUST MISGUIDEDLY TRYING TO LOOK "HARDCORE" (OR SOMETHING) OR IS JUST LOOKING FOR ATTENTION AND/OR SYMPATHY!!!!

    He wasn't just taking the vicodin though he listed a lot of other pills as well as that, either way who cares he was taking too much and stopped fucking yay for him.

    i don't think he's had plastic surgery....he gained a lot of weight and lost a lot of weight. That can make your face look very weird.
