I did many drugs growing up, but when I was around 19, I started using spice. I cannot believe how addicting this drug was, and just like the man in the story said, I was doing crazy things to get synthetic drugs, I couldn’t go an hour without it, or I’d be sweating, throwing up, angry, restless, and mentally unstable.
I sold everything I had if I didn’t have money to get a bag. I even remember having a credit card with a max of 6,000, and that was wholly maxed out before I knew it.
I was married at the time, and I was not a great husband and was pretty horrible because of the spice. I am shocked this stuff around, and honestly, I cannot see how any drug could be much worse. I was stuck on this for about two years, and during those two years, I quit about four times.
Each time was a week or two extended events, of me shaking on the floor, burning so hot that I would have to sleep in the bathtub to be able to turn some cold water on before I could overheat. I couldn’t eat or sleep, and I would lose about 25 lbs each time I got off it, within a week.
I honestly cannot believe I am alive. I am now 23, married to my current wife, we have a baby on the way, and I have been clean from any substance for about 2.5 years now. Life is fantastic, and drugs destroy any sense of experience you can have. And for anyone still addicted, you can get off of it and never touch it again.
