Spice nearly ruined my whole life.
I was a cannabis smoker for about 2 years until my friend introduced me to a drug called legal high (spice).
I decided to smoke it as cannabis wasn’t having the same effect on me anymore! It gave me a high like I could never imagine.
I enjoyed it but I told myself I will not have it all the time and that I’ll have it once every so often.
But it really didn’t work out like that.
Day after day I was slowly been hooked on to this horrible drug.
I had friends who smoked it and what it was doing to us was horrifying.
I was managing to get my hands on this drug every single day.
I was not going to college; I was going to work high on drugs.
It controlled my life and I was losing hope.
I started smoking very strong spice and was having seizures in the middle of town and not been in control of what I was doing with my life.
I was having people coming up to me that I don’t remember seeing, but they were telling me about the night before and how I was acting.
It makes you paranoid and gives you the worst hallucinations you could probably ever imagine.
After a couple of months, I thought I had to stop it now.
I was waking up at 2 in the morning in need of a joint and if I didn’t have one I was going crazy and started going through the withdrawal symptoms within hours.
The day I stopped.
I was constantly shaking, throwing up and not been able to sleep.
I ended up in the hospital as I couldn’t go through the withdrawal symptoms any longer.
I was prescribed medication to calm me down but I was still feeling the same. Suicidal depressed, I thought everyone was the same, and it felt as my life was pointless on this boring earth.
I was seeing and hearing things and I couldn’t cope anymore.
I lost all my muscles in my body, I was like a walking skeleton, I lost over 3 stones.
I wasn’t eating or drinking and I had to force myself to even drink some water.
This is the worst drug out there.
If you are offered these drugs, please do not take it.
I wish I would have never had that first drug because it is still fucking me up to this day! I used to see homeless people in town that couldn’t handle the drug after been heroin and crack users.
We all used to sit together and talk about how bad this drug was but at the same time, we were passing a joint around us.
