I started smoking this stuff when I was 16 and I am 21 now.
My health is SO poor.
I’ve been to multiple gastrointestinal doctors, ER visits, primary doctors, etc.
I have had two surgeries on my stomach due to this drug.
I smoke and have smoked it every day all day and throughout the night. I don’t hallucinate, but I get extremely sick.
This occurs every month and will last 5-7 days.
It gets so extreme I drink water and not even minutes later I’m throwing it right back up.
I want to stop but my body feels like it needs it because it’s so used to it. I wake up in the middle of the night to the top of my stomach burning me. I’m constantly having a burning sensation in my upper stomach area.
,I was just diagnosed with a kidney infection that 2 antibiotics couldn’t clear up.
I don’t know if I’m going through kidney failure now because it’s gotten so bad.
I go to see a new specialist soon at Loyola Medical Center to see where to go from here because I can feel my body shutting down.
I feel weak, tingling sometimes, tired, ANXITEY, STRESS, and depression.
The key is you have to WANT to be clean more than you want that feeling of being high.
I want to be clean but the stomach, back, and kidney pain I experience, pushes me to just pack another bowl to relieve the pain.
Sure I’ve tried pain pills to help me but I just end up throwing them up and most of the time they are still fully formed, not even a little dissolved.
So just know eventually it WILL lead to other health problems.
I don’t even have my gallbladder anymore because they thought removing it would help my health but I’m still severely sick from this.
Just get it in your thoughts, if you don’t quit you will just die and if it’s not the spice that kills you it’s the health conditions the spice has caused.
It’s damaging you in ways you don’t even know yet.
Any recommendations of stopping would help.
To tell someone “just quit it” isn’t enough.
Obviously it isn’t going to be easy, I understand that but I know it will be worth it.
