I’ve been smoking spice regularly for the past 7 years.
I’ve been wanting to quit for about 6 months now, since I’ve noticed I have became crazy addicted! I needed it daily to take the edge off and just to cope as a normal person…that was my first sign. Then I noticed I started to lose my appetite and lost over 30 lbs in about two weeks.
When I didn’t have it, I paced, sweated my ass off, sweaty palms, shakes, puking, in other words was having major withdrawals from the drug. I started to hate life became very depressed and was looking at the world and myself different… But not in a good way!
There were many times after work, I’d light up, pass out in my truck, and stay in there all night regardless of the weather or temp and be passed out!
It’s time to change, and I realize if I don’t do something now I’m going to be dead before long.
I’m only on my 3rd day sober and it’s been hell! But I’ve noticed by staying busy and somewhat active help take your mind off of things along with informing loved ones or friends that can also help especially if you’re trying to go cold turkey!
Input and support from others can be great!
I hope to continue my journey and be a better sober man without the need to be high to function.
I have faith in all people if the mind is willing…but remember you aren’t going to be able to quit If you don’t want too!
