Similar to your story, I first found legal weed/spice 3 years ago.
After years of smoking pot, I thought this stuff was the best invention on the planet.
Cheaper than weed stronger than weed and localy sold in a shop.
At first, a 3 gram bag would last days but you build a tolerance very fast.
So to overcome this, i changed brands of spice as the chemicals were different.
The problems started after i was smoking 9 grams of the strongest spice on the market.
I was wasting up to 250 GBP ($400) a week, and felt like i was a crack addict.
I can’t blame her, but my fiance left me. I was a pretty good looking guy who hit the gym hard,
but I became a scrawny mess who didn’t even bother to shave anymore.
I hit rock bottom, but still craved spice. From the second i woke up, my first thought was a bong of spice. Last thought at night, the same.
The stuff destroyed my sleep pattern – I woke up every 2 hours all night to have a hit.
Here’s how bad it got: at 27, I was kicked out of my flat as my landlord confronted me. So i beat him badly.
Then, as i needed help, my parents moved me back in to their house.
Even under threat of “smoke that shit & you’re out!”, I relapsed more than 10 times.
My dad even through me thru a window when he came and caught me on one of my spice hits.
He loves me, but said he would rather see me dead than live on spice.
It makes you walk like a 90 year old man, talk like you have had a stroke, and it is really unpleasant to witness a loved one do this
I am still, to this day, smoking spice.
I’ve stolen & sold belongings and anything i can to get spice.
My addiction is far less, but i have found myself scraping residue from bags, even picking up small bits I’ve dropped in my car, just to get a hit
Please don’t smoke spice! I have done every drug possible recreationally – even I.V. heroin.
This stuff is different. A new smoker will puke off of a tiny amount and flip out.
How the fuck did this substance hook me so bad? I still don’t understand.
It truly is the devil, made to addict purely.
I hope soon I can be free of spice forever.
But for the meantime, I’m still dabbling.
And its not even like I’m happy… it’s ruined my health and my relationship with a beautiful girl.
If I’m caught again, I will lose the house my parents put me up in and will lose my family – for good .
