I have been smoking spice since 2012. It starts with the store ones like down to earth and other brands, but after a while, I built up such a tolerance.
I had to find stronger stuff so soon. I started to buy the herb in bulk, but it was untreated, so I found someone that sold the chemical, all I had to do was mix it with acetone and pour it on the herb and let it dry overnight which let me make it as high as I wanted.
I would smoke anywhere from a quarter to a half a day because it was so much cheaper doing it this way. That is what lead to my severe withdrawal off of it only took 20 hrs for me to start vomiting uncontrollably.
I felt so cold & thought I was going to die, but when I would feel sick, I would start sweating so bad and get so hot I would have to strip my close off while trying to vomit.
My second time withdrawing after I relapsed was the worst this time. I had to go to the hospital because I couldn’t calm my heart down.
They gave me a pill to help with the vomiting because I was throwing up so much in the waiting room, and when I finally got to the back, I was put on a machine to monitor my heart which resulted in them giving valium since my heart beat wouldn’t calm down.
It happens on Dec. 10, 2016. I’ve been clean since but it’s been hard. I dropped 10 lbs the first two days and another 15 pounds the following week. I now weigh 97lbs and am 5’4 and have had the most difficult time eating. It’s getting better, but the biggest setback is I don’t sleep, I might get 4 hours of sleep a day.
I’ve been seeing a drug counselor and just made an appointment to get non-addictive sleeping pills. I hope only to take them till I can sleep better. I hope this helps anybody that is trying to withdraw. It can be scary but it worth it!
