    Tiger Woods

    Post by blondy28 on Tue May 30, 2017 6:08 pm

    No golf board, so I thought I'd post here.  Umm....Tiger...I know my way around a vicodin, and trust me, that reaction you had before getting behind that wheel was the desired reaction, not an unexpected one.  Back when Tiger was exposed as a serial philanderer, he talked about all of these trysts involving him taking ambien with alcohol.  I can't imagine how one parties on that particular concoction, as it would just make me sleep, but I did meet a woman in AA whose party drug combo was something similar.  Combine a guy with a history of addictive behaviors with 4 back surgeries in three years, and that, my friend, results in a wicked opioid addiction.  When I saw those eyes in his mugshot, I knew those were painkiller eyes if I'd ever seen them.  He's lucky he's not this year's Prince...yet.

    Stop the presses! I agree with Blondy. No doubt he was prescribed pain pills for his recent surgery, but these actions are more like an opiod addiction.

    Agree. We just all heard how great he was feeling since the last surgery and how was on his way back. If that is the case, why do you still need pain meds? Because you've become addicted. First time I ever heard of prescription drug addiction that I remember, excluding Elvis, was Jerry Lewis, for the same reason, back pain

    I assumed that the reason he was feeling so great was because of the pills.  Yeah, vicodin will do that for ya...until it turns on you.  

    All the talk now is about how stupid his handlers were to release that statement.  "It wasn't alcohol!"  As if the smorgasbord of pills that he took is better than downing a few margaritas.  

    How many more athletes have to become addicts before we start prescribing pot instead of narcotics?

    Well, you're almost there, Tiger.  You aren't getting professional help to "manage" your medications.  You're an addict.  I truly feel for the guy.  My pain is bad...miss work sometimes, and I have a level of pain everyday.  And when it's really bad...and I'm on my third day...I would fold like a cheap tent and take a handful of painkillers if they were available to me.  I can't imagine having Steve Kerr-like pain and not being able to take pain medication.  **IF** that's the kind of pain Tiger is dealing with, not sure how you deal with that on a daily basis if narcotics are not an option.  I hope there's something that will get him some relief.  And I hope he is able to be honest with himself.  He admitted to being a sex addict...not sure why he wouldn't admit to being a drug addict.  Only thing I can think of is that because he actually IS in pain, he thinks he's not an addict.  Not exactly an uncommon perspective when you come to addiction from chronic pain.  I suspect he will eventually get to the place where he can admit it.
