I’m 62 years old. Formerly worked for a government organization that began doing urinalysis exams to detect, among other things, marijuana. So I quit smoking marijuana and started smoking SC.
Addicted for 8 years. In the last few years, I purchased the SC compounds from Asia and mixed my own batches. Employer’s urine exam started testing for common SC compounds; however, I stayed ahead of it by using newer compound verities, which showed negative on the reviews.
Last compound I used was extremely powerful. Attempted to quit 2 years ago. Severe withdrawal symptoms (truly “heroin withdrawal times 10″). I have gone through 5 detox’s in 2 years.
For one period, I stayed clean for 6 months but recently started using it again. I have sought help through my medical coverage, AA/NA, etc. but couldn’t find anyone that could understand my addiction.
I could not relate to alcoholics and meth addicts. I have been straight for 8 days now and hanging. I’m curious if anyone else has had any parallels?
