I have been addicted to this stuff on three separate occasions. However, this has not been my only addiction as I have been on heroin, methadone, and crack. However, this thing has given me the biggest problem.
When I’m using it when I’m not high all I can think about is using, but once I’m high I just want to quit.(talk about misery)
It started innocently as I expected I found this miracle drug. I went from spending my whole paycheck on a night to spending ten dollars a day. I told my mom, my boss, everyone what I was doing cause this stuff was awesome.
They didn’t think so. I did though I was buying it, from a store caught by police with it just to be handed back to me boy was I confused. I started working for myself and would smoke all day every day.
It was when I began to realize this stuff so innocent. Bam I’m at work my whole body starts to cramp IDK what’s going on I think I’m dehydrated was I wrong again this stuff was killing me from the inside poisoning my body.
I went there I didn’t have an average level in my body everything was out of whack kidney failure, my liver was shutting down. My CK level which an ordinary high-end is 195 nine spiked to over 100,000 baffling doctors, I should have been dead. They thought it was the heat and manual labor work.
I knew they were wrong but wouldn’t admit I was of spice. Since this incident, I have been hospitalized for renal failure over twenty times. I have learned my body and can tell you when it’s happening my mom has to live in fear of me being on dialysis the rest of my life or worse death.
This stuff is no joke it changes you mentally physically. I have the capability to walk on a job and make $32 an hour, but when I’m on this stuff, I will panhandle to get the fix. The door never did that to me.
Nothing matters anymore; I was homeless in Baltimore where they still are openly selling this stuff in stores. I know seven stores within two miles of each other.
I returned home to an only to run out of spice, and once I did, I gave. Up a place to live to go back to homelessness in Baltimore dead of winter so I can get my Fox. Scary eh! Right now I’m in Florida, I have been here since Thursday today is Tuesday.
I have learned to wean myself off spice to minimize withdrawals. It is hard to do but is possible probably need a controlled setting but what I would do was when it’s time to quit because I had enough.
When withdraw starts to take place take one hit enough for the pain to leave. 4hrs then 6hrs then 8hrs then only right before bed. By the time you run out, you will be able to sleep, eat & drink.
My most intense part of withdrawing has been the loose stool, intense craving, and when I wake up in the morning I’m in a complete sweet. I have done it cold turkey in the past it caused me to have a meltdown this is tough baker act you.
