Hi everyone. I’d like to share my story.
I was smoking spice for over a year and half just because it was a cheaper alternative.
I was foolish in not really looking into its side effects, but all someone had to tell me was “there is no THC” and that was enough for me.
As MONTHS passed, I had cold sweats at night, heart palpitations, countless anxiety/ panic attacks and even worse, sleepless nights because of paranoia.
Paranoia about what? you may ask, but I really couldn’t tell you as it was more of just my mind losing it.
Oh…well…there were those few nights where I finally got some type of sleep but then awoke in fear thinking someone was in my home. But, hey, I would just snap out of it, smoke it and pass out.
Like I said…MONTHS this was going on and it became worse.
Long story short….it finally hit me and my anxiety/ panic attacks became at its worse and I thought I was having a heart attack and suddenly my body just…stopped? It’s the best way I can describe it.
I was forced to stop, and I urge others who continue to use to stop as well or else you’ll just stop working…and I mean mentally, emotionally, and physically.
I thought the worst was over, but then the withdrawal process started. It’s NOT easy, but I promise you it needs to be done. Just know that the withdrawals are GOOD signs that the drug is exiting the body.
It’s been 2 weeks now since I’ve been clean and although my mood swings are through the roof, it was a life-changing decision that needed to be made.
I hope my story helps those who are going through it. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
You just need to take a leap of faith.
