I started smoking spice because it was cheaper & stronger then regular weed, and seeing as though I have an addictive personality it didn’t take me long to become completely reliant on the drug. I couldn’t go an hour without smoking it, I went into instant withdrawal when I didn’t have it. It was so bad I thought it couldn’t possibly be the spice, there had to be something seriously wrong with me but after numerous trips to the hospital I came to the realization that only smoking more spice would make me feel better, feel “normal.”
It wasn’t even getting me high anymore, I began to hate spice but it controlled my life, I had to have it. I couldn’t sleep without it, I couldn’t eat without, at times I felt I wouldn’t even be able to breath without it. I went from the cute high school cheerleader who had lots of friends to an isolated drop out who didn’t even bother to shower or brush my teeth in the morning. Spice ruined my life.
Finally I made the wise decision to get help. I went to a rehabilitation facility in Arizona, & although people made fun of me in there saying “spice isn’t addictive” I didn’t care because I knew the truth. I was desperate to get clean.
I’m 4 months sober now & a functioning person of society today. If you’re addicted to spice & think there is no way out I promise you it is possible to stop. I didn’t think I would ever be able to but today I’m so grateful that I tried! Detoxing was horrible. Spice withdrawals are NOT fun, I laid in bed for 9 days withdrawing, worst 9 days of my life but I’m so glad I did it. It was worth it.
My story may sound stupid to some but if this was help to anyone I’m glad. You can get though this, i promise it’s possible 🙂
