I started using SPICE when it first came out, and it was great – the whole body hot.
I loved it, but there’s always an end to every story. It ended up costing me almost my job & my home. It did cost me my family and friends.
I am on day 12 now again, trying to quit. The withdrawal on this stuff is worse than any I have ever been with, and it just doesn’t seem like it’s going away.
I have had the hot and cold chills. I have had vomiting the diarrhea. I have lost over 30 pounds.
It has destroyed my life. My bottom was when I found out from my smoke shop that it is sprayed with liquid meth.
I started out on the crazy camel, and I am now hooked on headrush.
I’ve gone through my entire savings, maxed out all of my credit cards, got several payday loans out on my vehicle.
I have basically lost my life. When you smoke, you act just like a meth head – you totally hate yourself while you’re smoking it.
I don’t know if I can survive the withdrawal this time. I’m having to work full time with my job in jeopardy, maybe, in weekly drug test. But I knew I would always pass them.
I just want my life back. About day 10 of quitting, you go through withdrawal one more time. I’m hoping I can be strong enough this time to handle it.
I didn’t have much of a support system this time. I asked my sister who is a registered nurse for help. Her idea of help was telling me I was a drug addict, so no help there.
This stuff is worse than crack – stay strong.
Try to drink as much Gatorade as you can. Cool showers help you regulate your body temperature. And try to take as many over the counter sleeping pills as possible, to get through the worst of the withdrawal.
