I smoked incense for at least 5 years.
The first stuff that they were selling wasn’t bad. It wouldn’t make you sick, and I wasn’t as addicted to it.
I could get it anywhere, and when they banned it, I started going to Houston to the smoke shops and buying it.
The new chemicals started making me sick when I smoked. I would wait hours for the smoke man to call and call everybody I knew that had it.
I spent so much money on that crap – almost ruined my life.
I had a lot of friends that were smoking it. I had a friend who had a seizure while driving and he crashed and died while smoking it.
I had a seizure once, as well. I was smoking and of of a sudden, I dropped to the floor and woke up and had thrown up everywhere and didn’t remember anything.
I thought I was going to die. Still wasn’t done, though.
I ended up getting caught with some then had to pay all kind of court costs and they impounded my truck.
I still wasn’t done with it tho. Not until I got caught again, which could’ve been a felony charge .
I always had smoke and spent all my money on it, selling everything I had to smoke it because I was addicted to it.
I finally started looking at sites like these, and I knew I needed help.
I called a hotline and turned out it was for some trip for a cruise! It pissed me off so much, because I finally broke down and said I needed help.
I quit hanging out with everybody that smoked it. I threw up for a week straight and couldn’t hold anything down. It was pretty rough.
I didn’t have to go to a rehab, because I had enough will power to stop smoking and I been clean for over a year now.
I helped a few of my friends get off the poison, too, because they saw me stay off of it and I they said I helped motivate them to get off.
They would call every day to talk to me so I could guide them though. They had to want to do it though, and it started with them realizing they had a problem and needed the help.
I’m lucky to be alive.
While I was standing in front of that judge there was one of my so-called friends there with me. I was all alone, because I wasn’t having smoke and wasn’t sharing with them anymore.
I’m blessed I still have a second chance and it didn’t kill me like some of my good friends I know.
I hope everybody stays off that poison, because it’s truly no good for you. It’ll ruin your life and eventually kill you or hurt or lose the ones you love!
Stay strong, people, and please get off that junk.
Have some will power to beat this and get your life straight.
I know it’s hard, but once I finally quit I felt like a huge boulder was lifted off my shoulders and motivated me in life because I wasn’t depending on it anymore.
