Spice is terrible and ultimately made me feel insane. I am a young girl, trying to figure things out and never really did drugs. So when this was offered I kinda thought ” hey it’s legal so why not” ? Well, I was so wrong with thinking that. That’s the sad part, the people who make this stuff do this intentionally for you to buy this product. It’s a legal high, that’s cheaper than anything else illegally on the streets. After that one time, it changes my life for the next 5 months that I was very dependent on this substance, not for the better either.
I had just graduated high school and had just gotten a good amount of money, enough to buy a car or maybe even save for college books. I had plans, dreams and goals when I was sober but when I was high on spice all that didn’t matter, in fact nothing else mattered not even myself. Putting myself in harm for that “feeling” spice gave me, when in all reality that “feeling” wasn’t fun at all. I hated it, but my brain kept wanting it and so on before I knew it all my money was gone I had tried to save for college books, my dreams became small and my drive to so anything was nearly non-existant anymore.
I lost weight because I was so badly addicted, I puked every morning from god knows what’s even in spice. It was a scary time in my life, that I never want to ever experience again. I realized how ridiculous and out of control my life was getting and I had the power to over come my addiction with spice. It wasn’t easy in the slightest bit, it was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to over come but it saved my life. No doubt, if I kept smoking that awful stuff I would have died…. and I wouldn’t have cared. I am thankful I am okay now and have fully recovered. This stuff is horrible and it ruins lives… I never thought I would be addicted to anything, but I got hooked quickly and it changed who I am forever.
If someone you know is going through this please, please, talk to them and guide them so a safer path. People need to be more educated on this stuff and know when and what to look for when people are “high” on this stuff. I hope my story helps others fighting the demon of spice addiction, it’s real and it’s very scary.
