I smoked spice every day for 6 months several years ago. It became illegal to buy, so thank goodness I was forced to stop smoking it. I lost 25 lbs, and I was unable to eat solid food for almost 2 months, I was living off Boost nutrition drinks.
I stopped pooping practically altogether from the lack of food. When I did start back, it was black tar. I was finally on Xanax to help because the withdrawals were not going away after months.
I had to stay on that for almost 3 months. I tapered myself off, but if I had continued withdrawals cold turkey, I believe I would’ve died or been hospitalized.
I also heard voices during this time, severe denationalization, unable to spell simple words or form sentences sometimes, delusional, severe anxiety and paranoia, memory loss, moments where my skin and scalp felt like plastic, severe agitation, chilling/ fevering / sweating with dry heaves every night and morning for months.
I almost destroyed my entire life because this drug is so addictive… Its been nearly seven years, and I still occasionally have mild withdrawals.
Usually, high stress with no sleep brings them on, or when I smoke weed for a month or two and try to quit, I experience spice mild Withdrawals for about 1-3 days.
