My story is a little different from most.
My boyfriend started smoking spice before me. I would try it here and there but it wasn’t a regular thing. Then I stopped and would yell at my boyfriend for smoking spice. Eventually i started routinely smoking with my boyfriend. It got to where he would get out of school and we would try the rest of the day to come up with the money for spice. My boyfriend had trouble with the law but I continued to smoke. We moved away to Galveston and still found it. It turned into not being able to sleep all through the night. We would wake up every other hour and have to smoke to go back to sleep. We could only eat when we smoked because that was the only time we would get an appetite. We wouldn’t go do anything but try to find money everyday for spice and we would. And then we would sit all day and smoke. That’s all we did for 2 years. My boyfriend went to jail and that’s when I decided with my friends to quit smoking spice.
The withdrawals are intense. I have been clean for 3 days now. I had awful sweats, couldn’t sleep, and am now slowly gaining my appetite back and it made me depressed. Don’t let the withdrawals scare you from quitting. I already feel better. Last night I was able to sleep with only waking up twice in the middle of the night and today for breakfast I have eaten almost a whole bowl of cereal. I probably wouldn’t have been able to quit knowing my boyfriend went to jail, so I traveled to Dallas to be with my sister and she is definitely a great help. Surround yourself with positive influences, friends, or family. Smoking spice I have lost 3 homes, family looks at me not the same now, lost my job.
Nothing good comes from spice. Please believe me. I didn’t even notice how bad spice effects you and had an impact on your life until you quit. Now when my boyfriend gets out we will both be clean and never touching spice AGAIN.
I hope my story helped. God bless.
