Real marijuana is my drug of choice, and I live in a state where it is 100% voted legal, recreationally.
Like many other folks, I was placed on probation for 3 years for an alcohol related offense. I had no idea they were going to test me for perfectly state legal things: weed and alcohol. It’s preposterous, because if I could have just smoked real bud that is actually legal in my state, I would not have had to turned to this evil.
I knew about spice because my lil bros were always in trouble with the law. I knew they did it, but they seemed alright, so I thought it was alright, right? I told them to hook it up, and they told me the gas stations they would go to. I found nothing. You can’t find that crap here, everybody loves real marijuana. It’s legal here.
I decided to see if I could order it online. Duh. You can get anything online. So I would get a 30g bag for $90, which is cheap from what I’ve read on here.
Sure enough it arrived on time, every time, so I never ran out. Also like many of you the quantities I ordered went from 5g a month to 60g a month over 3 years. I’m not even gonna do the fucking math. I don’t want to know.
I didn’t start realizing how addictive it was until I was smoking every 15 min. Waking up every hour on the dot to smoke if I did sleep.
It wasn’t until I dropped a diluted UA and my PO slapped a scram on my ankle – she told me not to call the UA line anymore because I had an alcohol monitor. So, I was like that’s dope, straight to the recreational dispensary.
So I blazed up my sack (or I guess it’s in bottles now) but I was like ok wtf I’d rather hit the rest of my spice this weed isn’t doing the job. So I blazed up the rest of my spice. Once the spice was gone the only way I was able to get through it was with weed. But I passed it off as quitting is not really that hard.
Fast forward some months, and I’m back on piss tests, back online ordering 30g bags twice a month. Not caring if the USPS found it, or if anyone I lived around found out. I’d smoke at my workplace in the corner. It’s a huge bar so I wasn’t going to get caught.
It got to the point I had to smoke every 15-30 minutes, or else I’d start sweating and shaking so badly I can’t even have a verbal conversation with someone or smoke a cigarette because the shakes make me breath erratically and I can’t talk or enjoy taking a drag. It’s forced me to quit cigs, which is cool. I smoked half a pack a day for 12 years. Over that too.
Well, recently I had a bad injury to my arm, and couldn’t work. Can you imagine spice sweating a hard cast out? Its awful. I found a less physically demanding job, and I know withdrawals will be obvious in an office setting. I quit this past Saturday, but I am not fully clean.
I am having to wean myself, with tips I found on this site:
1. Benadryl and sleep aids help a little with nausea. As an addictive person, I refuse to replace spice with pain killers.
2. Gatorade. Like a gallon a day.
3. Ensure or similar nutritional drinks.
4. Hot hot showers. I just sat there for 45 min, but when you get out you’re gonna shake because it’s cold.
5. Most importantly is weaning. Only smoke a tiny tiny pinch if you think you will throw up. Limit to 3 hits a day for the first 2 days, 5 hours apart. Set your phone alarm to give you permission.
Then go twice a day when you feel sick. And keep reducing.
It’s hard as fuck.
First 2 days, I was crying a lot. But I’m on day 3, and I notice a huge difference today. Very positively noticeable. I’m thinking about spice way less and the severity of withdrawals have deceased.
The other thing I did was throw away everything I had pertaining to spice. About 25 clogged pipes because I refuse to clean a spice pipe. Empty bags for scraping. All poker tools thrown out because I will burn the resin off and suck the smoke through a straw.
I want to thank the admins of this site and others like me. I feel so alone in my family and friends that just having this tool here is extremely helpful.
I have absolutely no desire to continue using this drug, and I’m confident I will be a success story.
You have to want it more than anything.
My advice to you if you land up with a PO is just ride that time out. Your real bud is still going to be there when you are off probation.
I had no idea THE MONSTER I was facing.
