I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vein
And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I have made the big decision
I'm gonna try to nullify my life
'Cause when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death
And you can't help me now, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor's suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man can not be free
Of all of the evils of this town
And of himself, and those around
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life

Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off and dead

Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
And everybody puttin' everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

'Cause when the smack begins to flow
Then I really don't care anymore
Ah, when the heroin is in my blood
And that blood is in my head
Then thank God that I'm as good as dead
Then thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know

Every time the prudes make another law to restrict opioid painkillers in the name of fighting heroin abuse they just make it easier for the dealers to find new customers.

Agreed I take about 1800 vikes a month and each year it seems harder and harder to get them. Heck my doctor is actually cool about it (probably because I stay on the low dose never ask early and only ask for an increase every couple years. He still makes me come in 3x a year. One I can call my physical 2 I have to pay a co-pay for. The rest of the year I call request a refill he writes it out and has it waiting at the front desk for me no appointment.

We discussed it about a decade ago when I was struggling with MS pain and had to decide between continuing to work and becoming an addict or going on disability. As I was only 31 at the time I accepted the risk of addiction. Back then it wasn't a big deal he did require me to come in 2x a year to keep tabs on me but that was it, he would write it for 6 months I would just swing by my pharmacy and bada boom bada bing.

One other hurdle you failed to mention is that if a pharmacy doesn't have enough and you get a partial fill your script is considered filled you can't go back a couple days later and get the rest. Happened to me once and the jerks at the pharmacy failed to inform me of that at the time. When I was on an antibiotic they only had about 2 days of my 10 day course they filled it and I went back 2 days later and got the other 8 days worth. It's just the opiates that they could call 20% of a fill a full fill.

But no lets keep making it harder for patients to get meds that will keep them out of the hands of the junkies. The most recent DEA change was opposed by almost all doctors, and hospice nurses but still passed because "drugs are bad mmmmkay"
