"I had a lot of work done to my teeth. Oral surgery, extractions, six, seven, eight root canals. Between January to February. As soon as I got out, I had a lot of stuff done...Of course for the pain they gave me oxycontin and hydrocodone...And then I'm like, wait―this shit makes me feel good. And it's legal. After the pain went away, I kept taking it. I had like five, six prescriptions. So I had, like 80 pills. Everybody else might have a drink or smoke a blunt, I took a pain pill...and eventually I developed―I guess―the beginning stages of dependence."
