I’m a recreational drug user still to this day.
My drug of choice is marijuana, but i’m not able to smoke due to employment drug tests.
So not risking my $100,000 a year job, I started smoking what we refer to as legal in my parts.
I smoked the whole year of 2008 with no ill effects.
I could quit with no withdrawals, and I smoked 10g’s a day.
Then, they changed the ingredients and bam! devil in a bag.
This felt nothing like the real deal any more.
My whole life revolved around getting high. If six hours went by with out it I was dope sick.
I would just go crazy with mood swings, cold sweats, loss of appetite, racing heart and just plain psychotic.
I had to have it to sleep and to be able to eat. I would smoke till I was catatonic.
I would be scraping my pipe like a crackhead for resin.
It was ruining my life and marriage. My wife had seen me fall on the floor in convulsions.
After that, I would have to lie – and when I came home on weekends from work, not smoke due to being around my wife.
Well that strategy went to hell after six hours when my withdrawals kicked in and my wife would try to take me to the ER due to thinking I was dying.
Well she had enough, and it was her or the drug. So when I got laid off from work and could go through withdrawals, I quit.
Hell on earth ensued for the next two months.
I ALMOST DIED !!! My wife said I stopped BREATHING…
I went from 235lbs. to 185lbs.
It took me a year to get healthy again with no depression.
Bottom line is: of all the drugs I’ve done – and I’ve done them all – this is by far the worst in every way shape and form, PERIOD.
