NOTE: this advice may not work if there is a serious untreated injury or untreated condition that needs to be self-treated, or treated by medical doctors or dentists. (But this free advice may work anyway.) In other words, the pain is a signal that should not be ignored, so do something about it. But taking a pain killer is not really treatment of an injury. If we have an injury that has not been treated, get treated. In other words, at the dentist, get the cavities filled, OK?
This advice is not about prayer or hope. This advice is not about will power. This advice is not about magic. This advice may seem too simple to believe. It may seem impossible to believe. But this advice actually works.
If you're in pain right now, get rid of your pain within 30 seconds by accepting and feeling the pain for just a moment.
You've probably been avoiding the pain for months or even years. Stop avoiding the pain right now. Look the pain directly in the eye, so to speak.
If you've been avoiding the pain, stop avoiding it. Instead, for just a short moment, concentrate on feeling the pain in its entirety. In other words, instead of avoiding the pain, feel the pain in its entirety for just a moment.
If you do that, your endorphin system which creates a substance identical to morphine will be stimulated, and your pain will simply go away or fade out.
This permanent fade out of the pain will occur as soon as you accept and feel the the pain intentionally. You know the pain there; you can feel it. So concentrate on feeling the pain rather than avoiding the pain. Just for 30 seconds or less.
Imagine you are alive before opiates were even discovered. That might help you to accept the pain, which causes the pain to simply fade out.
Feel the body. Feel the pain.
At any rate, the advice works due to the mechanical nature of the human body. Everybody has a pituitary gland in their head. This is where the endorphin ("internal morphine") comes from.

Marijuana and Pain.
I conjecture that marijuana works well for pain, by increasing the body's sensitivity to pain. Getting stoned on pot would bring greater awareness of injuries and the pain related to those injuries. This would tend to cause the endorphin system to kick in, which would kill the pain.
If you use opiates to kill pain, you're just becoming dependent on opiates which replace endorphin produced internally. In other words, opiates would stifle your own body's built-in pain killer. Taking opiates would tend to cause a person to feel eventually that they need more opium. Take too much, and good bye planet earth.
Opium is currently the number one cause of accidental death in the USA. But in many parts of the world, people are not dying like flies.
The Silent Slaughter of the USA.
Sometimes the Acrobats Fall, but There's No Safety Net.
Most of this slaughter is accidental, yet self-inflicted!
Your Body Creates It's Own Internal Morphine.
It's Called "ENDORPHIN".

Slaughter by drug statistic: click here. Most of those slaughtered were victims of opiate overdose, but there are many other such dangerous drugs.

(Aug. 16, 2021) The Drug Czar of the U.S., and the DEA, ought to be teaching the American people about the endorphin system of the human body. Your body doesn't need opiate medicines at all. Such pain killer chemicals are produced and regulated internally by our own bodies. Everyone should know this fact. Otherwise, we are programmed to do dangerous things with opiates.
Why opiates are not really necessary to fight pain. My One Experience with Opium (one shot of morphine after a leg fracture, waiting for the ambulance).
NOTE: when someone slaughters, it's usually not inflicted on a specific individual member of the species being slaughtered; it's indiscriminate killing, unlike murder or suicide, which are both inflicted on individuals, or an individual.
(update July 16, 2021) I heard on the radio today (NPR?), that accidental drug deaths in the USA have skyrocketed during the Covid-19 pandemic by about 30 percent! The death rate from drugs for the USA was already extremely high in the USA before the covid pandemic. Wall Street Journal article about this.
(The horrible stats pointed to below are from 2018 data.)
(July 6, 2021) Very few of these deaths from drugs were intentional, so this is a statistic that measures a type of accidental death. Yes, it's self inflicted if we ignore the doctor that gave us the prescription for the killer-drug, if the victim has a prescription. But these are generally not suicides.
But shouldn't the drug users take responsibility themselves, whether addicted or not? For 2020 stats from the CDC, they're now saying about 90,000 per year died from both licit and illicit drugs in the USA, and opium was the main one.
The statistic varies slightly from year to year. The USA was recently in first place in terms of "death by drug". For 2021, (using 2018 stats) we're apparently in second place. Ukraine is number one (using 2018 stats) at the moment. For women, we're still number one (the USA) in terms of death by drug.
Question: do most people in the USA really know the risks of using opiates and other drugs which can easily cause death if misused?
At least the experts still say that no one is dying from cannabis.
