I’ve been addicted to tar since I was 13 & dabbled around in my fair share of meth and cocaine, but no come down or withdrawal has compared to spice.
It has caused damaged in my relationship, I have thousands and thousands of dollars in medical bills and all I’ve wanted to do is die because of the extreme amount of pain and discomfort I’m in.
I started smoking spice about 3 months ago and smoked it every day. Spending anywhere from 10-30$ a day. And trust me, it adds up FAST.
After a while, I would get so sick to where I was shaking violently, throwing up (most of the time dry heaving& that’s the worst feeling), sweating from every pore in my body and unable to eat anything or sleep to the point where I felt like my body was literally giving out and dying.
I didn’t know at first that I was having withdrawals, so I kept going to the emergency room thinking I had some sort of parasite… until a friend who was smoking spice actually told me he was having the same problems.
My come downs would be so bad that anywhere from 10-20 minutes after my last hit, I would start feeling nausea and body aches. If I didn’t immediately smoke and stay high through the whole day I wasn’t able to function at all.
The smoke shop we use to buy the spice from got raided, and after that I had no choice but to get clean.
This is my 4th day without smoking and it has been so unbelievably painful and hard, I couldn’t even walk the first day and threw up, literally, an entire trash bag to myself.
IT GETS EASIER AND IT IS WORTH IT TO QUIT.
I’m just now getting my appetite back and was able to sleep more than an hour at a time last night. I can slowly feel the life starting to pour back into me. It’s hard but it’s worth it.
And if you haven’t smoked spice before PLEASE DO NOT TRY IT!
