Hello my name is Christian and I’m a 23 yr old male from the US…
My journey with spice started about 3 years ago when I was placed on probation and couldn’t smoke marijuana… My friend had told me about this stuff called ‘spice’ or ‘k2’ and he said its like legal weed. So sure I was willing to try it.
So we went out to the local headshop and picked up a few packets of spice. I proceeded to roll one up and we started smoking. This stuff came on so hard and fast we had to stop the car because we were overwhelmed.
I was hooked from then on and continued to try out countless blends thousands of dollars down the drain.
I introduced my family to the blends because they were also pot smokers and thought they would enjoy it. This just started a whole nother animal.
Now my whole family, dad, mom, and brother are all addicted to spice. We would go pick up a baggie everyday, this was the life we thought, legal weed so accessible.
Until it was banned for the first time is when I started to experience withdrawals. The symptoms are VERY much like an opiate detox if not WORSE!
It has been 3ys and now I have decided to quit for good and am now going though one of the worst times in my life. I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, I’m hot, then cold, clammy, sweaty, I can’t concentrate to save my life and there is no spice to be found anywhere. I felt like I was dying last night and it feels scary because I do not know if there is any permanent mental/physical effects.
If anyone out there is using spice currently and is thinking about quitting. Please do yourself and the ones who love you a favor and ditch that poison and find some support in your recovery!
Good look to everyone on their recovery, you’re not alone.
