Hi, I’m Andy and I’m 18 years old, and I was addicted of spice for about 4-5months.
It all started in high school, in class, some friend knew that I was into drugs and asked me to try the new thing called “veggie,” it was a liquid that he put on a regular vapor pen mixed up with some essence.
At first, I didn’t want to do it because when I asked him what It was, he didn’t know, and I didn’t want to do something that I didn’t know the side effects.
I was having troubles at home because of drugs and what a better drug than this one, that would make me pass my drug tests and still get even higher than with weed.
I stopped smoking when my troubles at home got better; I was smoking weed, and I was good with it.
Months pass by, and I started having drugs problems at home again, so my best friend and I went to the store that it was like 20 min away from my house to buy “veggie” only that this time was named “Kush” and it was labeled as “not for human consumption “.
We bought about 5mm each one; we bought a new vapor pen and new essence to mix it up with; our “Kush” days were back.
Since it was so easy to smoke it, we were doing it everywhere, no one would ever question someone smoking of a vapor pen, we were doing it in the mornings, before work, during work, after work, for fun and before going to bed.
We were doing it like that for like the past three months.
Every time I smoked something wrong happened, of the stupidest things to the biggest things, but something always went wrong.
My memory just went to hell; I couldn’t remember what I did the day before, and while I was high with my friend, I was talking about something and in the middle of the conversation I completely forgot what I was saying and couldn’t remember it later.
Our friendship went through hell too, before seeing each other we talked on the phone about how many things we were going to talk about when we see each other again, and when we were together, we smoked and completely forgot what we were going to talk.
I felt that I wasn’t smoking just to get high, I was smoking to feel something stronger.
I built resistance, and I needed to smoke more to feel the high to a point that it looked like I was doing heroin.
I used to get so high that I couldn’t do anything but be in the car or my bed passed out.
Everything got worse my best friend was having big problems at home too, problems that she had never had before and, it all started after the spice.
I couldn’t focus anymore, I couldn’t go to sleep without a hit, my coworkers knew that I was on something because of my way of acting.
Every time I got high, I couldn’t control myself anymore; my face was like if I was out of it.
I wouldn’t eat and had diarrhea.
Sometimes when I was high, I used to make crazy body movements, if I stood up I would fall, I couldn’t walk while I was on it.
Time passed, and I still don’t know what the “Kush” was, I still can’t tell you for sure if we are talking about the same drug. After a whole research, I realized that the so-called drug “spice” has the same effects that the “Kush” that I was smoking.
I finally stopped smoking after reading more of it; I decided that I was not going to something that I didn’t know for sure what it was.
But then, the withdrawal came, I couldn’t sleep, I was depressed, I had suicidal thoughts, I felt that there was something wrong with my body.
I still have that withdrawal, and I don’t know when is this going to end.
My brain is not functioning like before, and I’m scared as hell of my future.
I’m young, and I don’t know what are going to be the long-term effects that I’m going to face in future because of spice.
I haven’t done heroin, meth or crack, but I feel that spice is the closest experience to those drugs that I would ever have.
Please, if you are reading this and are suffering from this addiction, remember that you are not alone, and it’s time for you to stop.
I want everyone to know my story. Spice kill you slowly from the inside, and if you can spread the word, trust me, you are doing a big favor to the community.
