Avoid Zolpidem at all costs!

I got a prescription for them from my GP for a few weeks short term use. Long story short, 9 months down the line, I'm in the midst of a full blown Zolpidem addiction/habit that I just can't kick - only managed 2 or 3 nights out of the last 6 months without taking a Zolpidem (and there was usually alcohol involved there). All too convenient to just swallow a pill and be asleep within 15minutes.

(PS- forgot to add that I'm not involved in the aviation industry or 'position of responsibility at all anymore)
