T.I. Says Drug Addictions Started With Prescriptions

After T.I. went through a series of dental surgeries last year he was prescribed Oxycontin and hydrocodone to kill the pain. Unfortunately, T.I. never stopped taking the drugs.

“After the pain went away, I kept taking it. I had like five, six prescriptions. So, I had, like 80 pills. Everybody else might drink or smoke a blunt; I took a pain pill,” said the rapper.

T.I. and his girlfriend were caught with ecstasy in September. Luckily for him, the case was eventually dropped. However, he does seem to have gained some perspective from the incident.

Said T.I.:

“If you rationalize putting yourself in harm’s way, risking your well-being, your health, your freedom, your family’s well-being and livelihood in order to be high, that’s the rationale of an addict.”

We hope he’s really learned his lesson and keeps working towards recovery!
