Oxymoronish - Yeah, I just made that word up

Does anyone else see anything wrong with this billboard?
Isn't it a little oxymoronish?
I mean to give out a prescription to get rid of your addiction.
Is giving out the drugs the best way to treat this ailment?

that is just a titch crazy...
maybe the prescription is to get rid of the prescriptions????

It jaw dropping when you come to realize just how many people are hooked on prescribed pain meds. Once the addiciton has taken over you can get them almost anywhere. Sad but true!

it's just how modern society works--(and this is coming from a gal who's never been ashamed to admit that drugs--the GOOD KIND--are her friend...)

pretty soon we will be popping pills for everything in our life.
kinda scary.

Let me pick up my jaw first. Then say what a great made up word "Oxymoronish" it fits so well. personally I don't think giving more drugs is going to make it easier to quick taking drugs.

I actually heard about this the other day. People are now hooked on the prescriptions that get them off of drugs.

Go Figure.

I just made up that word, too, and looked it up on google to see if there was such a word and found this blog. Great minds (or crippled ones)think alike!
