Hello, my name is Christina. I am currently three months clean after a long two-year addiction from spice K2.
It started when an ex-boyfriend of mine told me to hit a joint one night when I was super stressed after a long day with my five kids. Well at the time that was the best 10 minutes of my life. I was super high.
Well if I would have known the outcome of what I know now I wouldn’t have ever hit that the joint. Well from there on out, it started slowly. I would hit a joint here and there…but it got bad when my ex and I split up.
I went from just taking a puff or two…top rolling blunt wraps full and smoking them alone…I loved the high until I realized I was addicted. K2 took over my mind; I was waking up every hour sometimes less and rolling and smoking.
It got so bad that I dreaded night time. I couldn’t fall asleep without smoking, and when I did finally fall asleep, I couldn’t stay asleep because I would wake up and need to smoke. I started to pre-roll my blunts before bedtime to make it more convenient for the night.
When I didn’t have my spice, I would get real angry and yell and scream and say things to people I didn’t mean. I manipulated people for money…I would throw up and get restless legs when I didn’t have my smoke.
Well, I lost everything my home my job and am currently going through family court for my kids. I stopped smoking because I realized how bad the addiction had come along with how bad my anxiety became when I would smoke I would feel like I was dying.
I am currently clean, and it’s been three months, and I still think about smoking every day. For anyone who still smokes, trust me I understand how hard it is to quit, but it will be the best decision you have ever made.
