I was afraid of dependence

When I was on this liquid morphine, I was very afraid of becoming dependent upon it. They kept telling me people like myself would not become dependent on it because we're looking just for pain relief. We're not looking to get high on this or whatever it does to you, you know. We were taking it mainly to get rid of the pain, not to get high from it or anything like that or get hooked on it or anything like that, which I didn't do. It did worry me though, I mean yeah, you hear so many stories about people getting hooked on drugs and stuff and that scared me a little bit.
