I myself was a spice user.
Now when I say “user”, I mean I bought it when I ran out and smoked it on a regular basis.
I first tried fake bake in the year 2012, when I was arrested for possession of Marijuana.
I thought, cool, I can still get high and do my crap for probation.
I then lost my husband in a car accident; lost my car; and lost my house, because I had to quit my job as a bartender because of my probation.
I wasn’t allowed to be around alcohol.
I smoked the heck out of it then.
I then found a man and got pregnant after being with him 4 months.
I cleaned up & quit smoking for the baby.
Literally, though, after I had him, I picked it right back up.
Not like I used to smoke it, but I’d have a joint or 2 a week.
I was an off and on user of both Marijuana and fake bake for a yr after I got off probation, but the high was different.
My husband now wanted to move about 4 hrs away from my family and our friends, with nothing to our name and a U-haul full of our stuff.
Scary, because I’m not one to uproot.
I found a job after a month of being there, but then had to get another job because what I was making wasn’t enough for our family of 4.
I was the one working 2 jobs and trying to support us, with everyone screwing us over left and right.
I got depressed.
I found the fake bake again… not hard, if you’re looking for it.
It probably is the worst drug out there. It makes you not feel anything, which at the time I didn’t really care what I felt.
My husband wasn’t there for me like he should’ve been. We were living with disgusting people, and I felt helpless because I was working my tail off getting nowhere.
I lost so much weight, because it makes you sick to your stomach if you even smell food.
It made me binge eat.
I would have night sweats when it would be freezing cold.
The best way I can describe how it makes you look is a zombie. You’re here, but you’re not.
I couldn’t think straight; and when I did think, it was the stupidest stuff I ever heard myself think.
It’s a dangerous drug.
I remember passing out at a gas pump one time. I could’ve been driving through a red light!
I might be telling on myself here to God knows who, but I really want to reach out to people that use this horrible drug to help them understand the bad stuff this drug can do.
I am 5 months clean of any drug – including Marijuana – and I only have wine every once in awhile.
I feel great.
I can enjoy my kids as much as they should enjoy their parent being there 110%.
It was a selfish act, even when I was depressed and going through a hard time because I wasn’t the only one going through it.
I hope that whoever reads this, it helps.
I know my story is different from yours, but this drug is slow suicide!
I still don’t know the long term problems I might have to face down the road, for smoking this crap.
It does affect other people around you as much as yourself!
Thank you for letting me share my story!
