I first heard about spice when I was first put on probation in ninth grade (2009) .
I thought it was the greatest thing ever, I mean I could still get high AND pass a drug test.
That was when it went by the name K2, and that’s all it was. I couldn’t find anything besides K2.
This is not where the addiction started though, because I actually didn’t like it in 2009.
Again, in 2012 I was out on probation. Spice was still around and easy to get at this time so I went to a headshop and got some.
It was called “going bananas” – this is were my addiction began.
I eventually got off probation and quit.
Let me just fast forward to a month or so ago (May 2015)
Spice has become the most addicting drug that you can possibly get.
I have done heroin, coke, crack, meth, you name it. I’ve done it, and nothing was harder to kick than spice.
I would sleep behind the dumpster of the only store around that sold it, just so I could wake up and not have to worry about finding a ride to get it.
I stole from my family so I could supply my habit.
Keep in mind I’m 20 years old, pretty good looking, and a pretty smart kid.
Spice doesn’t care about any of that.
There were times I didn’t have spice, so I would crawl around on my floor for hours on end picking up the tiny pieces I had dropped weeks before while packing bowl or Rollin joints.
I stole from my best friend. I broke a $160 bowl just to scrape the most minuscule amount of resin out of it.
This drug is no joke, it will have you doing these things you NEVER would have thought yourself to do.
I died from it also, for about thirty seconds. Woke up, and hit a damn joint.
It’s really sad and anybody addicted to it cannot be happy with the way they live.
I was so miserable, but it was comfortable misery. All I needed was $20 to get a bag and THAT DAY was the next best day.
I’d lay in the basement of my parents house and just smoke it, all day. Not showering, cleaning, changing. Nothing.
This is my first time sharing my experiences with the drugs so I’m sorry if it’s not the “story” you were looking for.
I’m just telling you what happened to me.
If you’re feeling any of these ways or done any of these things, I want you to know you’re not alone, and there is help.
I’ve been clean for a little over a week now and let me say it’s been the best week of my life. I got a job, took my sister fishing, and hung out with my family more than I had in the past three years.
It will kill you if you continue it, and you may not get as lucky as I did and get another chance at life.
