Spice Withdrawal Symptoms

spice addiction look in the mirror

How Bad Are Withdrawals From Spice?

There are many withdrawal symptoms people experience when they stop smoking synthetic marijuana for an extended amount of time.

Some might even have some withdrawal hours after their last hit. Other people are lucky enough to never experience any at all.

While death is not likely, a person going through spice withdrawal often feels like they are going to die without the drug.

This is because the synthetic cannabinoids have caused the reward sensors in the brain to become dependent on the chemicals in the herbal incense.

The brain starts to play tricks on you to make you think you really need Spice or K2. In all actuality, you will be better off without it.

Some of the most widely reported spice withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Uncontrollable vomiting, nausea and diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Extreme Sweating
  • Inability to sleep
  • Intense cravings for the drug
  • Depression
  • Loss of motivation
  • Psychotic episodes
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Inability to care about consequences

Here are a few stories posted by spice & K2 users to our site recently, describing their experience withdrawing from synthetic marijuana:

For Some, It’s As Bad As Quitting Crack or Heroin

Some claim that withdrawing from a synthetic cannabinoid addiction can be as hard, if not harder than, withdrawing from hard drugs including crack, heroin and opiates. For example, here are a few stories recently submitted to our site:

While it is horrible to have to go through these withdrawals, it is absolutely necessary in order to be free of herbal incense addiction.

If you are the person experiencing the withdrawal, just remember it is only temporary. Smoking more will only delay the process and will make all of the time you went through the withdrawal absolutely pointless. The faster you get through it, the closer you will be to quitting the drug.

Spice withdrawal is a horrible thing to experience. With a good support system and professional help you will be able to get through it and will be a much stronger person afterwards.

Take it from me, I was able to quit smoking incense.

If I can do it, I know anyone can.

        The withdrawals were really bad and lasted for a few days before I would smoke again. After 10 or more times trying to just avoid it to quit, and that not working because I would smoke the day I started feeling better, I had to get some help. The last and final time I quit, I detoxed and exercised a lot. That helped cut down on the severe withdrawal. I started feeling a lot better on day 5. But some people have a much better experience and some have a worse experience than me. There are a lot of variables, in my experience. Which chemicals, potency, and how often you smoke are going to impact your withdrawal symptoms.

        Best of luck to you! Please know that you can do it. You are stronger than the incense.

      I recently just quit 4-5 days ago and am doing good with it. Does anybody experience chest pain after stopping? I feel like on my left side just under my breast bone (high rib area) I get pain there and almost like pressure in my chest. Now I am constantly worried that permanately messed myself up. Believe i was smoking a UR based blend as i live in houston tx and heard thats what they were putting in it. Also feel like nothing makes me happy anymore. Almost like a lost of intrest in everything. Will this go away or am
      I screwed forever. I am so scared :(. Any advice and support is greatly appreciated. Thanks for y’all time.

      • SpiceAddictionSupport says:

        My lungs and chest hurt for weeks after I quit. I also had kidney pain. I got checked out by my doctor and i would recommend that you do the same. You never know what could be wrong and it’s better to be on the safe side.

        As far as the type of chemical you were smoking, you really can’t be sure at all. It could be anything. Some UR, some JWH. It all depends on whats legal and what shipments haven’t been intercepted by customs.

        Get yourself checked out. It will help clear your mind.

        Take care of yourself. You can do it!

    2. Mitch says:

      Heck, i’ve been smoking incense for a year-ish. I’m trying to quit now. I’m going through withdraws and it sucks!!! Are there any ways to counter-act the symptoms of spice withdrawal (to make me feel better)??? I really need the help. I’ve been sober off spice for 3 days. Is it almost over?????

      • SpiceAddictionSupport says:

        Any time you can speed up the detox process you are going to get through the physical withdrawals faster. At least in my experience. Drinking lots of fluids, exercise to get the chemicals out, or you can even get a detoxification product to help you through it. Amazon has them the cheapest. My physical withdrawals lasted around 5 days or so.

        For me, the physical withdrawals weren’t as bad as the mental part of it. Even after I got through the detox, I still wanted to smoke. It was something I did all day, every day for years and I didn’t do much else. So you will probably need to find a hobby and distract yourself with things that aren’t smoking incense.

        Best of luck to you and let us know how you are doing.

      I am addicted to spice right now and it’s getting worse. im going to need serious help to stop smoking. Im scared and have put walls up to everyone in my life. I am a almost 29 year old female with a great job and no one knows beside a select few that I am a slave to spice. Really disappointing I turned out this way.

      • SpiceAddictionSupport says:


        Don’t do what I did and lose your great job because of spice. It’s not worth it. I quit my job because I didn’t want to go to work anymore. It cut into my smoking time. Not to mention the fact that I really hated to be around anyone when I was high. It was one of worst times in my life.

        I really believe that you have to admit you have a problem before you can fix it. You have accomplished the first step by posting your story here.

        Now, you have to figure out what method you want to use to quit smoking. Whether you go to rehab, use a detox program, or just power through the withdrawals, it’s going to be tough.

        But I can say with 200% certainty that it is worth it.

        Please let us know how you are doing in your process of getting sober.

        You can do it, Stella!

          Aside from being strung out on meth some years ago, nothing has been worse overall than spice for me. I stopped 4 days ago. I have not ate anything in 3 days. I feel as if I don’t know who I am. I have little interest in anything. I start to feel hungry so I’ll try to eat a bite of something and that’s it I can’t eat… feels like I will vomit… so I just go lay down and pass time. I was spending over $800 monthly on the crap. the not eating, not sleeping well and feeling stupid will hopefully end soon. PEOPLE…. DO NOT USE THAT CRAP… IT MESSES YOU UP IN WAYS NOBODY FULLY UNDERSTANDS YET.

    4. John Doe says:

      I just decided to quit about two hours ago. I’m already experiencing withdrawals. I’m tired of it ruining my life. I already relapsed once. I lost my girlfriend. I’m pawning all my valuables and I’m about to lose my job. I desperately need help.

      • troy says:

        just do it. It sucks like all hell, just stop, go throug the wds, and get over it. I felt like you after work on monday, its now wednesday im mostly over it.
        Keep fluids up, think positively abouy the change you are about to make in your life. Good luck

    5. shinji says:

      this is day three of quitting smoking spice and i feel way better now. day one my symptoms included cold sweats, sticky palms, lack of sex drive, teeth grinding, and a sense of panic unless i smoked, and an extreme lack of hunger. day two was only just sweaty palms and lack of hunger. day three im bored as hell and i am trying to be productive. to be perfectly honest i am loving the challenge of quitting. i like overcoming the obstacles life throws my way. its a wonderful learning experience. im thinking i should be fine by day four, however i was only smoking this stuff for about a month maybe 10 times a day. before that i smoked it for 6 months striaght back in 2010 while on probation and then went back to lady MJ. while i do not condone smoking MJ it is a great way to detox. currently i am only smoking cigarettes and that kind of helps. i am soooo glad that there is a site like this out there to help people and sort of raise awareness to the dangers of this terrible terrible drug. i wish everyone who is trying to quit the best of luck. our existence is way more important then the existence of this stupid ass drug.

      I been trying to get my boyfriend off the stuff he keeps trying but gives up because of the withdrawals I don’t know what to do please tell me how can I be a good supporter for him and how to support him on trying to quit it’s just as hard as watching him go through the withdrawals as well as going through the withdrawals yourself I’ve never done any type of drugs but I seen people that gone through it and I worry about him not for me but for our daughter she’s only 3 I hope you all the best I’m so glad that I keep finding sites that are supporting people on quitting some families don’t support their own children please keep up the good work your life is more important than anything

      • SpiceAddictionSupport says:

        Just remember, it’s him that needs to quit. You can be as supportive as you want but unless he wants to, he won’t quit. The best thing you can do is not enable him. Don’t buy it for him and you really don’t have to accept him smoking if you don’t want.

        When you are addicted to a drug like spice, you make excuses to smoke. Your brain convinces you that you need the drug. so more than likely, he is going to say anything and everything to you to justify him smoking. I know, I did it all of the time.

        The withdrawals are going to be tough for him to get through but he will be a much better person when he does. Some people need to go to rehab to get through it. Some don’t. Some can quit cold turkey. Those are the lucky people.

        I wish you two the best of luck. Please keep us updated on his progress.


      • NoMore says:

        My boyfriend admitted to me the other day how much of this he was smoking. It started out as something we did on the weekends…but he ended up doing it daily! Nothing or no one is going to make your bf want to quit, but him. He has to decide to stop..and there are places he can go, like a treatment center, that can help him get through the withdrawals. I am driving my bf tomorrow to a rehab he is checking himself into and staying for a month. Not sure about your bf’s symptoms, but this stuff can cause severe depression and thoughts of suicide. I know this because my bf admitted to me he was having some scary and crazy thoughts about hurting himself and that is so not him at all. Look up rehabs in your area and you should be able to find a hotline number for you to talk to for yourself and him as well. I wish you luck and will keep you in my prayers.

    7. nacirema says:

      I smoked this garbage for over four years, on day three of sobriety. ugh id love to be able to keep down a meal. or even sleep for more than four hours. the cravings aren’t so bad as theyve been for the past 72 hours. I realized it wasnt worth it after puking up blood, the brown stains on my bottom teeth (regaurdless of the fact i brush n floss twice a day) oh, and that seizure.

      what ive found bests to just keep active. 75% of being addicted to anything you smokes the oral fixation. toothpicks believe it or not work well. hope the best for all y’all that’re quitting.

      • SpiceAddictionSupport says:

        Keeping active definitely helped me. I exercised, played basketball and went swimming to help get through all the withdrawals.

        Sorry to hear about your experience with this stuff but I am happy you made the decision to quit.

        Take care of yourself,

    8. cameron rux says:

      hi my name is cameron I have been smoken for 6 years off and on and still cant quit I got kicked out of the military because of the addiction that was like 4 years ago. my girlfriend really wants me to quit but its really hard its like I have to smoke everyday to feel better and to even function eat or do anything im afraid I might have to go to rehab for this idk is there any advise you can give me to help?

    9. Troy says:

      i used to start my day with a couple of cones, then go to work then have a smoke at lunchtime then back towork then smoke every half hour till bed. The last six months i start sweating on forehead just before lunch and after work. I came to the conclusion it was withdrawals. Ive got a three day course for my work next week. I had to give the stuff up. I stopped monday after work(none since lunch on mon). Within a hour i started getting shakes extreme sweating, throwing up, no appetite. Now its wednesday, i took yesterday and today off work, feeling a lot better but may need to take the rest of week off so i dont show any symptons of withdrawals at work. Ive been drinking lots of orange juice and those liquid breakfast drinks -only things i seem to keep down. The cravings havent been too bad, i think because i now know how bad the stuff is to come off of. I wish a had never started, i only started because it was easier to get then mj and wasnt illegal, two years later ive now givin up and just wish i had listened to people warning me against it. The only bad side effects i experience on spice was the sweating and memory loss, i used to have a awesome memory lately i cant recall things my boss told me the day before.
      If anyone has any tips to help get through this period,mwould be greatly appreciated.
      Been thinking of trying excersice but i start feeling like shit if im out of bed for too long.

    10. James says:

      I smoked this devil stuff for 2 years. I smoked heavy, spent most of my free time blasted out of my mind (I smoked it from a bong at home…and could kill a bowl in a hit). After a while my usage ramped up to the point I was takin it to work and smoking from a pipe behind the building. It started to eat up most of my money, and I didn’t care. I started to only be able to eat while on it, and I could only fall asleep high. Then I’d wake up when it wore off a couple hours later. I would also start sweating a ton a couple hours after smoking, when I had just finished coming down. Eventually I owned up to being addicted. I threw out all the spice I had left (well, actually a friend threw it out). He also smashed and threw out my pipe, and took my bong. The first week was the hardest. I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep unless I passed out from exhaustion, ad I was apathetic about everything. Constant nauseau, felt like i had no happiness at all/was depresses, the works. After that week, I still had trouble sleeping and eatin but I didn’t constantly feel sick and I was able to take some joy in life (albeit with random bursts of depression). After the first month, the withdrawal symptoms were gone, but not the cravings. Now I’ve been off it for 9 months and most of the time I don’t even think about the stuff. I do still get random cravings, but from talking to recovering addicts of other substances (specifically heroin addicts because this incense actually hits opioid receptors) I think that normal. So hang in there everyone! You CAN DO IT.

    11. troy says:

      Day four, things going pretty well thinking of trying solids tonight, no sweats, shakes today, haziness mostly gone. Gonna go to work tomorrow see how i go, just hope i dont experience any WD symptons at work, i know i probably get frustrated, annoyed at people, stressed etc but it will be friday so just got to make it throughtomorrow then can have the weekend to finish recovering. Gonna try find
      some weed tomorrow to help with the sleeping at night (ironically i started using spice becausr i couldnt be bothered trying to find decent weed). By the way josh if you still check in your posts helped me get through the first few days, im glad you gt your life back, im hopingnto do the same oneday. For those of you hiding this from your partner, dont. Hopefully they will understand you need to do this to improve your life, their support will help immensley, it may be rough for the first few days but there is a light, on my fourth day without impretty sure im at the end of the tunnel.goodluck to everyone attempting to kick this habbit, im sure if we all knew how addictive is was we wouldnt have gone there.

      Has anyone experienced loss of sensitivity to touch? I’ve only been smoking spice for a few weeks and now I’m starting to notice that after a few hours of not smoking, my hands and lips will start to go numb and eventually I lose sensitivity to touch all over my body. The feeling goes away after I smoke and comes back a few hours after my last hit. Has this happened to anyone else? should I be worried? Do the withdrawal symptoms happen that fast? I’ve only been smoking for a few weeks and I’m already getting withdrawal symptoms after a few hours of coming down.

      • damage says:

        absolutely. this is lne of the nasty symptoms that only get worse over time. its bad for a fw days and then starts to subside. still get numb sensation every now and again after 1.5wks off.

      • bates says:

        Yes I cant feel anything I was given ivs didnt feel the needle. I was showering to keep my body temp at a certian temp and I couldnt feel the water hitting my body

    13. Jordan says:

      hello ive been smokin spice for about 2 years now on and off, my addiction was never really bad until recently about a month ago. I was smoking everyday as soon as i got off work every 20-30 min id smoke a bowl and id do that till i would go to sleep. then it got to the point where i would smoke before work and on my lunch breaks, started vomiting every morning and could tell it was really destroying my body physically. the mental i think is even worse, it was at the point where that was the only thing on my mind and nothing else, literally counting down the minutes till i could smoke again. I never wanted to leave the house or go anywhere because that would mean id have less time to smoke. The worst part for me is the depression symptoms. when im not smoking nothing interests me and i literally dont want to do anything at all. Ive been trying this past month to quit but have failed everytime. Im on day 2 of wd again and im posting this because no one understands what were going through unless youve been through it yourself and it gives me a lot of hope reading all of these comments and im determined to not fail this time. just wanted to share my story and talk to some people who are dealing with the same thing that i am.

        I competly understand im on my 5th time to detox and I cant even make it 24 hours. I just took a dt yesterday and now im praying the shit I bought was legal and not gonna show up on the test. It took me possibly loosing my job and my family of 2 kids just to admit I have an addection. Now as I detox on my couch praying it comes up clean. I know exactly what ur going though and I hope u can make it too, My prayers will be with u and myself that u can beat this disease.

    14. NeverAgain says:

      So glad I found this blog! My boyfriend is checking himself into rehab Monday and I’m so happy he is. He’s been smoking this off and on for a few years. We were doing it together about 9 months ago on the weekends and he started doing it more and more during the week to where it started interferring with his sleep, appetite, mood, became withdrawn, depressed…and the list goes on. Last time I smoked it was a few days ago. I don’t remember what happened but I passed out and fell pretty hard and hit my head on the tile. Woke up shaking really hard, almost seizure like and really confused. I was done at that point. He decided that night he was done too. Scared us both to death. He has had some pretty nasty withdrawl symptoms as well. I didn’t know how much he was doing this and he was totally honest with me about it, how it made him feel and how bad he wanted to stop. I have noticed a change in him for a while now, but knowing what I know now it all makes sense. Anyone thinking about trying this needs to think again. It’s evil! Every bag we got was different. This last one was the worse!!! Hoping everyone here is able to kick this crap and never touch it again. God only knows what unknown damage it’s doing to us!!! After waking up the way I did shaking and not knowing what happened with a huge knot on my head was enough for me! I want my boyfriend back, I want him healthy and I want him to never touch this crap again!

    15. charliedavis3 says:

      I am 17 years old I currently quit smoking spice 3 days ago. I was smoking it alot daily, and ended up sick without quitting. So that’s when I decided to drop it right then I had the cold sweats and all for 2 days I was having phychotic dreams hard time sleeping. And much more. I am feeling much better now stay strong people

    16. Jay says:

      Today is my first day off the herbals, I have been smoking this stuff about everyday for the last 2 or so years having a bowl every 20-30mins while gaming watching tv movies you name it, I would probably having a bowl doing it. I would usually go for K2 Black for about a year solid among a couple other brands.. Sleep has often been a joke, I would wake often at night absolutely drenched in sweat, and moving brought a rush of frozen chilled night air into bed which sucked being so wet with sweat. Occassionally I would have a few bowls then feel that drowsy I would have to have a sleep for an hour and I find that I get very angry and I mean VEEEERY angry when even the smallest things don’t go my way. Driving home the other day someone traffic was moving so slow in the lane I was in so I switched lanes into the faster side they started slowing down so I switched back lanes because the old lane was now faster, the person infront of me saw this 2nd change and started slowing down to purposefully piss me off which worked because I got so irate i hung out the window threw a glass bottle at their vehicle, smashed their rear facing window yelled abuse and I think that if traffic had’ve stopped I would’ve got out and beat the living shit out of them. Prioor to smoking herbals I had control of my violence but since smoking them and then trying to quit I find I just get too violent towards people and the most terrifying thing is I’m a courier by profession so I drive for a living and it’s going to be only a matter of time till a customer cops my rage…I know I absolutely have to give this shit up as it’s going to land me in serious trouble with the law

    17. Robert says:

      I smoked this stuff for 2 years as well, till my friend brought over something called DOOB. It made him a vegetable for life, he cannot talk right anymore and stutters and he says he has slow motion in his eyes now. I quit after that! I had all the sweats in bed, irritable, mad, upset all the time and so on. Now I hear that since people are making so much money and cannot get the ingredient for it they are spraying liquid crack diluted in acetone on the leaves and it is causing all kinds of problems now with people here in the South Bay of LA. Please be careful guys! I lost 2 friends on this shit already. Do not play Russian Roulette with your sanity!

    18. joe says:

      I have been smoking spice off and about for about 3 years, never really had any problems but this past year i’ve smoked more than i ever had, usually only smoking once or twice a week off of a friends bag. this past year though i hav been doin it daily like every day and i found thats when the problems start to happen. if you smoke this stuff everyday you have to be carefull or you will find yourself not caring about anyone or anything besides spice. If my brother hadn’t gotten me a job i would be homeless right now simply bc i smoked so much spice it made me lazy and even though i knew i was gunna become homeless that didnt even matter. im still smoking spice bc i can pass drug tests and i dont hav to deal with weed dealers. Its bad news though i have gotten so high where in my head i think i cant breathe (all in your head) i have gotten so high to the point right wen i finished smoking i threw up food and when all the food was gone i threw up blood that was only one time though and weird thing was i think that was in my head too bc once i saw the blood i told myself to stop throwing up its all in your head and i did stop so that was really weird. All in all spice is bad for you just smoke weed it will save you some health problems and probly sum money.

      My boyfriend is addicted to this stuff and I don’t know what to do to help him quit he asks me to throw the stuff away or make it disappear and I do and then he goes and buys more…..he sits back in his man cave and doesn’t do anything but smoke for hours on end….he was spending about 5-10 dollars a day and now he is speni g almost 50 he just got paid on Friday and it is now monday and he has already spent 150 on the stuff….I have had it I don’t know what to do I’m afraid he will lose his job which means we will lose our apartment o don’t know what to do he has asked for my help and I don’t know how to help him

      • Chuck says:

        He has to make the conscious decision to quit. If it is illegal in your state you can call the police and tell them where he’s buying it and see if they’ll bust the place. Other than that it’s really all on him, your strong support will help him through the withdrawals.

    20. Jimbob says:

      Today is day one! Ive lied to everyone who is important to me. Ive hidden it well but it was so wrong and now Im alone in a hole with my addiction. But I came clean with my wife last night and though she pretty much cried her self to sleep, I think we will be ok. This too shall pass. I tried and tried ro quit on my own and just couldn’t. I had to come clean In every sense of the word. I gotta do it for my wife for my kids and for my health. Im 2ish years in and its time!

      • rachel says:

        hi jim bob,hang in there! I used to be a really big pill head,quit almost a year ago now,but started smoking spice to stop the pills.It worked but I got hooked to that instead.clean of everything now including cigs an booze.but like you my first step to really becoming clean was to admit I had a problem to my husband..i still rely on him for a lot of emotional things,hopefully your wife loves you enough to stick it though an you’ll be a lot happier an a way better person for your accomplishment
        all the best of luck to u and ur family,<3

    21. sinnoa says:

      Day 3 of withdrawls. Still feeling shitty but in a much better place than I was while on spice. I would wake up almost every hour taking A bong hit. Got to the point where I was smoking 3g in my sleep. At $24.99 it added up quick. My prayers for all recovering. Stay strong!

    22. joeyjohns says:

      i have been smoking this stuff for about 8 months everyday , until i quit for 3 months , after i quit i went back to it and now have been smoking for another 2 months,
      i have been sober now for 24 hours , the cravings arnt completely ridiculous but my depression is a big worry, i dont no if its bcoz i am in the middle of a break up at the moment and the fact she left me bcoz of that stuff,

      i also really cant eat or sleep and i seam to really over think everything! my minds going crazy just thinking about my life and everything about it , i tend to gwt really emotional which is very unlike me !
      how long will this last and ive only been bak on it for 2 months should the WD symptons go away in quicker this time??

    23. HotBoi says:

      I have just made it threw day four.This shit is crazy, home made, I haven’t ate a thing in 4 days, nor do I wish to. I will get intense spells of hunger, then when the time comes I freeze up. I have also noticed, when I get really hi, I start to shake, just a real slight shake start from my neck? I thought this was the dream come tru when it came out, but after 5 or 6 years on and off, and the past 6 months. I know this is going to kill me, I don’t know what its going to take for me to quit…. I have already lost everything, and I was able to get my shit back together still smoking. Its getting out of control, bags turned in to quarters, quarters to O’s, O’s to QPs….
      Good luck everyone! Makes me feel alittle better knowing I am not the only one…

    24. Was addicted says:

      I have been smoking syn,spice,k2,fake bake. For over 2 years and quit cold turkey this is my 7th day sober and just now starting to eat to again. I am telling you people this cause the drug is very addicting I would steal from my mom, brother take his car without him knowing. I’m very lucky I’m still alive it fucked up my bowel movement so I had to take powder to shit. Ik it might sound funny but its not. I lost 30 pounds in two days. I wanna burn the person who ever created the drug. When you are on the drug you are a fucking zombie pretty much. Glad I quit when I did I almost lost everything. You guys can do it stay strong

    27. Yourmothersbuttskin says:

      This stuff is horrible. Idk about you guys, but for me I get really depressed, moody/agitated very easily. I can’t say I’m the best guy out there, but i went from being the happiest and sweetest i have ever been, to being the biggest dick i know. Before i would never so much as raise my voice to my girlfriend. We never fought/argued once until I became addicted, and this stuff changed me dramatically. Since my addiction got heavy, and i started smoking 3+ grams a day, i constantly find myself yelling at my girlfriend, saying horrible things to make her cry etc. I love my girlfriend to death, and i hate myself for the way i have treated her lately. She says she understands, and i would love to believe that, but she will never truly understand. She tends to be as sober as it gets and i could never see her being a drug addict, so i just don’t see how she could understand. she won’t even smoke gods green anymore. Let’s just say this, she was an occasional smoker, but she was used to shit browns, so when she got a hold of the dank goodies i had she had an anxiety attack. I’m not happy about that, not one bit but I am very happy i met with her that day, she wouldn’t even so much as look at me, and then we smoked. Suddenly, “Can i make out with you”. It completely brought her out of her comfort zone for sure. The point is, it has completely altered my brain chemistry, and changed me into a lifeless, angry zombie dick that hurts my loved ones who only try to care for me and help me. Well, on another note, Day 3 of being sober, i can’t even hold a single egg down without puking, i sweat profusely (which is not normal for me), and i cannot sleep normally, i wake up in the middle of the night puking, and have to change my sheets because i sweat that much. I quit before, and I don’t know why I was dumb enough to start again. I find laying on my stomach and breathing out my mouth make me throw up more, so i take deep breaths through the nose, and lay on my back or side. Since I am so hot and sweaty all the time without it, taking a cold shower helps a lot. I am keeping myself busy, and seeking the guidance of my loved ones, which keeps me going with all the support i have been getting. Overall, this stuff is bad news, and i feel strongly that any and all synthetic cannibinoids should be illegal due to what it is doing to the youth, and even adults. I had a great job, with a great learning experience, and lost it due to the incense. Not because I’d skip work or anything, but I would just go to work without having at least 1 hit, and suddenly i was in the bathroom puking, and got sent home several times before they told me to stop coming until i am healthy again. So here i am, on that road to becoming healthy again. on the other hand, I feel for you guys, and I am thankful for being directed towards this website, it feels good to tell my story. Anyway, good luck to any other addicts out there, it’s relieving to know im not alone, i wish you all a happy spice free life, and i hope that maybe my story can help someone out, and realize what this stuff can do to change, affect, and destroy a good human being. Best of luck guys. Good bye.

      P.S. Thank you to the lovely woman who directed me to this website, i love her with all my heart. Im not just stopping for myself, im stopping for her.

      just wanted to add this because i forgot to: a certain spice, the
      strongest i have ever had called “pin up” made me trip so bad i thought i
      was on fire, i felt like i was burning and dieing, and i was even
      hearing the crackling and popping of what i thought was me burning.
      Also, i have had 2 seizures that i am aware of. There are two types of
      seizures, idk the names, but one where you are completely conscious and
      aware it is happening but you can’t stop it until it stops itself, and
      one where you pass out, have a seizure, and are not aware of it what so
      ever. i had both, and the only reason i am aware of the second one is
      because when i woke up my friends were screaming my name trying to stop
      it, i was unaware it had happened, until they had told me. so really, if
      i have ever had any of those other types of seizures, i am completely
      unaware because there were no witnesses to tell me. so who knows maybe
      more than 2? okay, bye guys

      I’m leaving my husband over spice. I’ve been with him for 14 years, and this is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to face, but I can’t take it anymore. This crap has completely taken over his life. Please, if anyone is curious about trying this drug….just don’t! It destroys lives!!

    30. em says:

      I’ve recently quit spice, and can say i have had the worst withdrawls i could imagine. Spent three days in bed battling a fever, intense sweating, uncontrollable tears, uncontrollable frustration and lack of ability to sleep, aching body etc. etc.
      I honestly thought i was dying and have never experienced such pains.
      Stick with marijuana, i was on that for six years and cut back to nothing without withdrawls (i got a bit moody and had trouble sleeping but nothing at all like the withdrawls from spice.)

    31. spicesmoker69 says:

      Ok this is day one of my decision to stop smoking spice, I first started to smoke about a year ago, I would smoke once or twice a day, but since the durations of this high are so short I found myself smoking more and more times a day, It caused huge problems with my new relationship, I just contributed it to us just working out the kinks, which I’m sure is partly for some of the drama, but I know without a doubt that 99% of the shit we fought about was over my mood swings, and my spice smoking. The reason for quitting now is that my health is at risk, I’m going through some of the worse withdrawls I’ve ever imagined, I tried to stop cold turkey…I could only do a day and a half before starting smoking again. I couldn’t sleep at night, I had some crazy sweats that would come on in seconds. I had some diarrhea and every time I would smoke it,it seemed like my stomach would lock up and anything I would eat would not get digested? I had dark green stool, it was so bad! So I decided to wing myself off the stuff, so I would smoke small sessions when I would really crave it, then I got down to where I am now, today is the first day of my cold turkey event, even though I winged myself down, from spice the withdrawls are the same as last time, so its a tough 4-5 days to finally kick this shit, but its only something that you can do for you, do it for you health, do if for all the people you are robbing of the wonderful person that you are to their world. It will destroy your relationships with a lot of people if you let it. Join me, get back on with our real life!

      So so depressed, I feel like a zombie and I have no expression or interest in anything anymore.
      I need help.
      Im always angry.
      I’ve only been smoking it for about 6 months.
      Some people say they never recover completely.
      What do I do?

    33. bates says:

      I have been smoking spice for 4 years I quit 7 days ago. I have had spells of extreme anger, shaking, sweating, irregular heartbeat, crying spells, gone into shock 9 times been in the emergency room twice, throwing up collapsing to the ground this has been hell. I feel like im dying. I havent eatin. Dropped double digits in weight. Guys this is some hardcore stuff. Need help have questions email me at [email protected] im not out the other side yet I was snoking 6 grams a day every single day. If I can do this yall can. Contact me.

    34. bates says:

      I wanted to say thank you for making this site. I have been battling this withdrawal alone crying feeling like im going to die and after seeing all these guys going through the same thing I have hope that the pain will stop and the sickness will end. Day7

    35. Jrock says:

      I’m on day 3
      First night
      -took 6 showers puked 9 times. I found myself on couch freezing and ringing wet. It was the worst day of my life. I took a pic of myself with my phone at my worst to remind me that I don’t ever want to go through that again. I’m not a doctor but I felt close to death. I still don’t eat and I can’t sleep at all. I used to make it myself so I had an endless supply n I was smoking 3-4g a day. My site got busted then I found myself searching driving a hr to a store that had it under counter, spending $150 a week

      I’m on day 3 n I can’t sleep but I feel like a million bucks. I can’t sit still. I been smoking the this “downer”for 3 yrs. and now I feel like I’m on coke. I have so much drive n determination to do things. Just keep yourself busy hang with ppl that don’t smoke, go the bar or somthing. I only could drink like 2 beers bc felt sick but I got off my couch where I used to sit n smoke nonstop. Surround urself with positive ppl. If I can do it. SO CAN YOU!

      day 6 here,and the lack of sleep seems to be the worse.my wife is so supportive and im blessed to have part time work in a job which i love,otherwise i think i would prolly lose the fight tbh.

      I’m on day day 3 almost 4 I puked my life up for 2 days and had fever cold sweats and just wanted to die. I can’t eat at all I haven’t eaten this whole week… I feel ok but weak and tired and I just feel depressed…
      I seem to cry a lot to during this
      ~taking hot baths helps

      • Jrock says:

        Hang in there man I’m on day 7. It gets so much better. I’m so mad at myself for wasting the last 3 yrs of my life being a hermit n lazy ass. I still only eat one small meal a day I have lost 15 pounds but hell that isn’t a bad thing.

        • R3n says:

          Thank you for responding to my post. Yes the only benefit I guess is weight loss.. I’m a lot better today. I just have no apatite for anything still! I was able to work out a little and shop to today which was great because I haven’t been able to do anything for so many days.. I still get in the bath here and there when my stomach starts feeling uncomfortable. Other than the uncomfortable feeling I get in my stomach here and there and not eating are really my last symptoms.

    38. Onedumbidiot says:

      Day 3: I’ve been useing spice daily for months now. I was traveling three hours one way just to purschase the stuff atleast once a week. It has been nearly a year since they banned all of the JWH-018 and similar chemicals. So there is no telling what they were useing present day. The DEA finally caught on to what was happening and they cut my supply. Needless to say I had to quit cold turkey. I have experimented with nearly every drug I could get my hands on and let me tell you spice was by far the worst of them all. Until now I have never experienced withdraw symptoms. The past few days have been horrific. Unable to eat without vomiting, constant direhea, unable to sleep, Etc. If I am unable to hold food down today I plan to go to the ER. I hope it doesn’t come to that. For those of you out there going to the same situation. I feel your pain I really do. I wish luck to all of you!

      • IP Freely says:

        I detoxed last year after smoking synthetics for 3 yrs straight. I was smoking about 10 grams a day. The withdrawal was horrendous. I have detoxed before, but this was by far the worst. I threw up for a few days, drifted between sweating and chills, was constantly on the verge of a full blown panic attack, and generally felt like shit for about 2 weeks. The first 3 days were the worst with every day getting a little better. I lost my train of thought quite a bit during this and had a hard time carrying on a conversation. Ive seen a couple of others detox from synthetics with varying severity ranging from mild to severe. Mine being about the middle of the road. I would never go back to it at this point. To each their own but the withdrawal alone is enough to curb my appetite for it.

        Hang in there!! It gets better and the satisfaction you get out of beating that habit is worth it!

    39. rorubalc36 says:

      Hi, I don’t use spice but my 18yr old son checked himself in to rehab today. He has been using for over a year or maybe longer not sure. He dropped out of school and ran away repeatedly before he turned18 this year. I’ve been trying to help him but he refused to admit he had a problem. In MAY he hadna seizure and I took him to the ER. Doctors told him he could die and that this drug is worse than heroine. I thought that would scare him but he continued using. He came home one night and was using in his room and I told him that I couldn’t allow for him to kill him self in my home. He also has a 2 year old sister I just didn’t want her exposed. I am so scared and I hope he pulls through this. I have read some of your stories and it has given me hope. At least he admitted himself to rehab but most importantly admitted he has a problem.

    40. Chuck says:

      Day 3 clean, never thought symptoms would hit me like this. Profuse sweating, inability to eat, and just generally groggy feeling. Just got paid and really really really wanna go get a sack but I know in the back of my mind this can’t keep happening. Synthetic is so horrible and I see that now, good luck those who try to quit, stay strong.

      • Chuck says:

        Woke up this morning feeling better than I have in years. It’s like a switch flipped in me and the want to smoke is just gone. No more sweating, just ate a delicious breakfast and kept it down. I think it’s finally over and now I can just get on with my life.

      • Chuck says:

        Spice free for a week now and I feel amazing. I feel like I’m getting my old self back. I feel like a huge weight has been taken off my shoulders. No more blowing money on that crap. Success! If I can do it you can do it, just need to dig deep and find that willpower we all have. You are stronger than this drug.

    41. Slick says:

      This is really helpful, today I threw up blood and knew immediately that it was due to the spice. I am quitting as we speak, still feel nauseus as heck but I WILL not smoke spice again. EVER. The high is nice but the detox is horrible I heard. The reason I threw up blood is because I wasn’t on it for about 8-10 hours total. That’s it. It’s incredible. I’m glad I wasn’t on it for too long. Hopefully this doesn’t destroy my life. I will NEVER smoke this stuff again. Please, if you’re on spice. QUIT NOW.

      • Chuck says:

        Stay strong! I was hurting bad for days but the way I feel now was so worth quitting. I’ll never touch the stuff again.

    42. Doobs says:

      I cant go for hours without it. I’m fucked. I’m achy, moody, bad mood. I’m also bipolar, so Idk what is going on. I feel I need it right now. Whenever I get money, I actually get Bizarro instead of weed. Weed dont get me as high anymore. I get called a champ cuz I whited and cleared a two-3 foot high Roor bong several times and took massive rips, bong after bong. Bizarro fucks me up but I dont trip or tweak as much. Yesterday my buddy who does alot of drugs smoked it with me and actually decided to take more than two hits. He took several hits and he wouldn’t take it anymore when i tried passing it to him. He thought he was gunna die but didnt go psychotic. He in my eyes handled it well, yet he was still pretty fucked up. He was fucked up without even knowing it at some points, which I exhibited as well. I heard it was as bad as cocaine, and is considered a harder drug. Is that the truth?

      • Chuck says:

        Strawberry Bizarro used to be my favorite. It is bad, really bad. Besides the oily film that coats your lungs, the addictive properties is just outrageous. You have to adapt and overcome, the withdrawals are horrible. The only way to beat it is to just make a conscious decision to not smoke and just deal with the withdrawals until they subside. You will feel like your dying without it, well I did anyhow. Inability to eat, ridiculous sweating, pale sick looking face. For about 4 days it was bad for me. The end state was well worth going through withdrawals. I hope you can quit, stay strong!

        • Desiree says:

          Hi Chuck. I’m looking for fully recovery reports. I’m on day 7 of withdrawals. I only smoked K2 4 times! Never thought I’d experience withdrawal like someone who’s smoked it for years! This is my first time smoking ANYTHING and I was lied to and told it was weed. What a lie from the pit of hell. Not that Marijuana is any better. When fully recovered I wont even take an alcoholic drink. Or medication. I need my brain and body to be in sync. How are you doing?

    43. Noah L Diamond says:

      If you get to the point where you cannot eat or sleep, and you constantly vomit… then you quit and in 3 days your body feels relief as your flooded lungs purge and your organs go back in sync, the withdrawls start to deliver their own rewards…

      If withdrawls are too much for you to handle, for god sakes, go to your doctor. They will not look down on you. They will help you. It is their sworn duty.

      • rachel says:

        YEAH RIGHT ,the doctors just frown on you, think your a junkie ,an do nothing for you. especially if you have med.assistance.i was going though a mental break down from depression meds to help me quit smoking(I no longer smoke) which ive never been on them before,after 3 months an a bad experience I wanted to kill myself couldn’t control my emotions.An that’s from something my doctor hooked me on saying it was safe,when I went to her about all the issues I was having she told me to stop taking them.then she gave me crazy pills which I never took since I was weary of meds at that point.what she did was give me meds that would do more harm then good in replace of a med that was already doing doing me harm..doctors are pieces of you know what!

        • Jim H says:

          That’s one crappy doctor dude. Stop taking one experience you had and advising other people from it and drawing conclusions that all doctor’s are now crappy. Are you racist too? Jesus.

          • JB says:

            I smoked for 3 years. got to where I smoked about 10 grahms a week for the last year. I quit two days ago and went through all the withdrawels. Due to lack of sleep and high anxiety, I went to my doctor. He really had nothing to treat the withdrawels ( no such cure out there yet ) like they have for coccain or alcohol but did perscribe a couple of meds to help with the symtoms. One for the anxiety and one for the heavy mucus I was puking. Also any tipe of benedril he said was good to help me sleep. He did me a favor and put on my med records that i was visiting for anxienty, not fake weed, just in case down the road someone needed to see my records. surprisingly he did say not to quit cold turkey. too hard on the body. he suggensted tappering off the drug slowly..such as smoke only when i needed to eat or sleep instead off all day. so far so good.

          • shank says:

            Jim is an idiot. I don’t know where you live, but try and get some help where I live. Not gonna happen. And yes, know it all, they will treat you like a junkie that can’t handle life as it comes. Are you a racist Jim or just a loser with no life who has nothing to do but waste time on a site that is trying to help people? Crawl back under your rock..idiot

      so heres my story: im 19 and just started college.. i smoked Spice everyday, and i mean everyday, i quit yesterday and it is really really hard.. i cant sleep at night for more than 2 hours at a time then im up for 2 hours.. and repeat the process. i have to say tho the throwing up is the worst of it all.. even when i was still smoking it if i woke up without spice i was guaranteed to throw up whatever was on my stomach, if anything. within an hour… i sweat, profusely and ive never been one to do that,. it can be complete cold in my house and even though my skin is cool i feel hot and still sweat.. i was up to a 10 gram bag of Caution to a 12 gram bag of mango Jazz.. its rough and the withdrawals are fucking horrible., worse than powder i would say and believe me i know, been there done that not going back! Thanks for all the support too!

    46. Ineedsupport says:

      I am currently going through withdrawals I’ve finally gotten over the vomiting now my stomach is queezy but I believe that’s because I can’t eat but I feel extremely hungry does anyone have tips on what I can do for food. I mean I can think to myself hm ordering a pizza sounds awesome but when it gets in front of me I have like a loss of appetite and can’t eat unless I smoke. So I been sober for the past few days been a little worry about the whole eating thing so I’m thinking of going to the store tomorrow for some east things to eat maybe like some jellow or something idk but if anyone has some input on what I should do about food please tell me I’m trying to get my life in irder and this certainly isn’t helping.

          I agree we can do this my buddy went to the hospital he quit last week he is having heart problems hypertension can’t sleep hi work even gave him medical leave of which he is lucky to have. This shit isn’t worth it I found that eating pudding,jello, chips and small bites of stuff is the only thing I can eat. But now today I had a break through I wa able to eat a burger I was feeling nausea a little but I got through it and kept it down drinking hot tea with honey seems to help my stomach also. So that’s something you can try. I been smoking this crap for 2 years it does suck but quitting can be done. For the sleeping try taking benedryll or zzzquill. I’ll be on this site everyday till I’m completely better if you have any question or idea to help me out please let me know thanks Steve!

        20 days clean the haze/sickness and pain are gone just the craveing remains and it is also loseing its grip just gotta keep going!

    48. Sabrina says:

      I stopped smoking spice last Sunday and from there on I been having loss of motivation I honestly couldn’t keep food even any of my favorite foods just the thought of certain foods makes me feel nauseous I have gone 4 days eating 5 things forcibly cause my body was telling me I was hungry and I was feeling like crap my anxiety is worse I know depression is factoring back in my. Life with smoking spice I had tolerance doing it off and on but had a slight crave for it when it was in the house my bf and roomate would do it religiously so it would always be in the house the temptation was hard since both of my roomates are military there off on military function for a couple weeks so the temptation is not around me but with my bf gone being and me coming off the stuff is hard I miss him deeply and its not helping my depression or anxiety with my roomates when they tried to stop they experienced the extremes the worse withdrawls the very most common and I have smoked just as much as them never experienced vomiting or cold sweats but i know the stuff has took a toll on me pyshcologically I would tell me bf that the stuff is messing with me mentally making me feel down anxious and depressed he would stir me wrong saying not possible with both us smoking has effected our relationship just him when he hismoked became lazy lack of sex drive and he just seemed unaware of what it was doing to us making me feel worthless he would be so unattentive to me where for me to stand him I would want to smoke. I read many comments on here which made me feel better that I m not going through this alone.. I was feeling awful and alone last night and I accidentally found a pipe with a small hit of spice I could not throw it away I smoked the rest cause I knew it would relax my feelings and make me eat I feel so stupid cause I feel I have to start this process over…I just miss my bf and it would be so easier if he was here I have not told him and won’t til he gets back from his function of my issues cause he is already having a miserable time and I don’t want to weight it on him. I just know how I am feeling is not normal not me though I have suffered with depression before but not like this where u feel completely down and worthless and I already have had issues with anxiety and with spice it calmed it now Its worse when I stop… I just want support from ppl who are experiencing the same problem as me where as others wouldn’t understand…

      • Ineedsupport says:

        Only way to stop temptation is to throw away everything and keep yoursel away from the stuff I found myself earlier this week smoking the resin which made the withdrawals worse when I threw everything away it’s not worth it you just restarting the whole process over. You can do it. I have a kid comming and I am also trying to get into the the marine corps. Your bf needs to stop if you want to stop. This stuf is 10X more cancerous then smoking 1 cigarette. I know someone that got stomach cancer from this stuff and that’s what I’m worried about rt now bc I smoked for 2 years. In always checking this site for support an also helping others out. Trying drinking the ensure like the guy side below it’ll give you everything your losing (nutrient protein and will fill you up) I wish comments showed up faster on here so the support will be better but just know I will always be checking this site to help. If anyone needs support ASAP let’s email each other or something [email protected] I’m starting to get pretty worried about my health. I also kinda woulda like to know what spice you guys smoked. I smoked F’d up, crazy clown, 10X those are the most recent ones. The guy by me stopped selling it thank god I just hope all this will go away. Stay strong Sabrina and Steve!

      • Ex-user-addict-of-spice says:

        I have experienced this problem as well. I posted a very long story on my addiction problem and how I recovered. I do not know if it will be moderated and posted. But I hope it will as it really does tell a lot about the true, very noticeable effects it has on ones life. I have tried to commit suicide, I have came a cm from losing my fiancé. I was destroying my life in more than one way using this stuff. It made me feel as if people were out to get me or were plotting to hurt me, or do something behind my back. Just throw away your pipes, throw away all packaging, throw away all rolling papers, r roaches you have left over. Marijuana is not an alternative because it will now make you feel the same way as spice does. Stay sober for at least a year. You will feel a lot better. Trust me. I wish you the best of luck. And if you want to quit and your b/f will not. You need to drop him. He will only become different more so after you quit. You will notice the changes it has. If you notice him acting weird. People notice how you act when using. This was key in my road to recovery. I did not like the fact that I was looked at as if I was a druggy. I noticed how I was slurring when I talked. Police asked me if I was on heroin or meth when I encountered them for traffic violoations. Not to mention I had 3 traffic tickets in 1 year. And I have been driving since 15 and now am 23 and never had a traffic ticket in between until now and it happens to be 3 tickets for speeding/ wreckless endangerment back to back. It has effects on how you feel, how you act, and your motor skills. It had so much effect on me that I noticed even when I was using my problems. Mentally you will feel deprived of any care in the world, it will make you paranoid, and your brain will feel numb eventually. Trust me quit now while you have the will to do so.

      I’m a mom to a teen (shes 19) who is kicking this crap.. what can I do to help her please she says the only way she can eat is to “smoke” and she breaks down.. today she is 48 hrs since last spice hit. but decided to take a hit of “buds”

      PLEASE help us
      She was smoking about 10/20 grams daily for nearly a year.
      Any suggestions how long the loss of appetite will last, how long this sick horrible feeling will last. The depression and psychosis?

      I really am just begging for help!!

      • steve says:

        it will pass it wont be fun or pretty but the alternative is worse just remember that you two are on the same side and this is not a race but a marathon.
        the appetite will be slow so just like someone who just hand a stomace band for weight loss put on make what is eaten count, this will sound gross but 7 up and watermelon taste fair coming up and she needs liquids,
        depression and psychosis, the safest bet is rehab with the pros! you need a pro,no book or fuzzy saying is going to help like trained pros for her and you! like it or not you are going threw this also. if this is not an option and you know your situation better then anybody, get her some food and liquids first and when she gets her feet under her she may very well level out on her own just be honest and wary if for even a second you doubt how things are going get help immediately, the safest bet is rehab with the pros, not everybody has long term effects but everybody needs help and even if there are setbacks you need to hang on it will get better then where ya started. ;=)

    54. George says:

      To shorten my story up i bought a brownie laced with spice and had an 8 hour spice attack went to the hospital and almost had a severe heart attack and was hallucinating like crazy i am 8 months clean i will say things have gotten better but i am still having these terrible spice attacks anyone else still get them.

    57. matt says:

      OK I’ve been reading all these posts for a few days now, guess I should tell my story.. Here goes, I’ve been smoking for 8 months straight now everyday, about 10 grams a day sometimes more. I tried to quit a month ago and that’s when I realized you will withdrawal from this shit! Even the so called safer less toxic May 2013 bags, so I started up again the same day I quit. A few weeks later I decided to ween down for a few days and quit. Its been 28 hours since my last hit, I’ve been smoking real weed to help and taking Advil PM’s to sleep, and previcid for the nausia and vomiting, also gambapentin for night sweats.. And it still sucks I feel weird my brain feels like mush. Depression is coming at me in waves , no appetite’ haven’t eaten in 4 days due to the flu and quitting spice. I have hypertension and anxiety. I just wish I could speed this up. This is worse than any withdrawal I’ve gone through. I couldn’t do cold turkey.. To the ones that did go cold turkey BRAVO!! Time is dragging on I just hope I don’t have any permanent damage.

        Its all about getting your mind off it dude. go work out or read a book or get wasted lol or do what i did and blow all your money on it so its either food or spice. i used to choose spice but i want to live!!! One of the greatest tools a man has is will power, use it!

      • Dougie says:

        I have and it changed my life. I tried quitting spice many,many times and I just couldn’t beat it so i went to rehab. Rehab was cool. Surprisingly, there were a lot of people there who smoked spice. Its way worse than i thought it was.
        I have been sober and out of rehab for 2 months. I just got a job on Monday. Everything islooking good for me. I know i still hvae to be smart but I’m 100% sure i will never smoke again. Do yourself a favor and call the hotline they have here. I bet it will be the best decision you ever made.

        Good luck!

    59. Mavi says:

      Glad I found this group. Today is my husband’s day 4 of quitting smoking spice and I am so proud if him. I know it’s not easy but he is a strong man and we will get though this. I refuse to let this brake our family apart. I am trying to support him 110%. What can I do to help besides laying in bed with him watching him twitch and turn while having sweats. He means the world to both of our children and I so any advice would be helpful.

    60. r says:

      I was interested in how you were doing now? How long did withdrawal last or are you still experiencing them?

    61. josh s says:

      i smoked spice on and off for the past couple years and I tried quitting 3 times went through withdrawals all three times all three times I had to go to the emergency room or walk in clinic for a iv drip I am on my forth time quitting and im on day 7 and still feel a little crappy I still spit up a bit and having trouble sleeping a full night but its getting better day by day im really disappointed it took me four times to finally kick this crap. im also really glad I found this site to help me through this. so much helpful people on here with great support I cant wait till im back to normal I hate these withdrawals and am ready for it to all end but when I spit there is some black stuff in it any one know what that is? is it from the tar or resin? if anyone knows let me know please and for the ones trying to quit you can do it! just be strong! everything will get better over time and the withdrawals will pass

    62. Brooke says:

      My names Brooke. Ive been smoking ‘spice’ or as I like to call it, Serenity, since I was 14, I’m 18 now and just started attending college at SHSU this August after graduating from high school.

      This drug is unlike anything else. nothing can compare to it. I start having panic attacks if I don’t have money to get it, going through about 2 grams a day at the very least….I have pushed all my family and friends that truly cared about me away because I keep begging for money and lying about why I need it. I have some serious issues admitting my addiction to serenity but it’s taking over my life and I really want to stop, but you don’t understand..


      When I have it everything is perfect. I’m completely content. But when I run out… I feel like someone is taking my heart and stabbing it or something..I have intense panic attacks and feel like the world is ending and cry for HOURS,

      I am a regular drug user and have tried everything from meth to coke to weed and all that. even though I have access to these usual life ruining drugs and do them once or twice a month but it is not them that I can’t live without. I have a particular favoritism for serenity and i dont know why.

      I dont know what to do, I dont know what steps to take to get help because I don’t want to quit and thats a big factor in helping an addict. Please someone, I need some help…I dont even know where to begin because I start crying just thinking about quitting…

      I dont have anyone to talk about this with because none of my friends understand and none of them smoke serenity, so they dont understand my psycho breakdowns..

      any advice will be appreciated but i feel like i could relate to intense recovered users the best.

      Someone has to get how I feel…

      • josh s says:

        Brooke, I know how it is I to used to take money from family to smoke and not say anything quitting is really hard my mom was a really big support in helping me quit the withdrawals do suck but it will pass!! you can do it if anything family is the best support you need to have them sit down and have a listening ear motivation is the best thing to get you through this let me know how everything goes I know you can do it

        • Brooke says:

          I’ve tried dude, they don’t understand.
          Why? Because theyve never smoked it, so theyll never understand how it makes me feel. That’s why I’m kinda trapped here in this situation….

          • Mom in Austin says:

            I totally understand your feelings. I wanted to quit because it was messing up my life, but I didn’t want to quit because it made me feel so good and I’ve been going through hard times. My memory is shot from it even when I am not stoned I will forget from one sentence to the next. I worked out some coping strategies for that so that no one found see how uncomfortable this was for me. My pat phrase was I just lost my train of thought. So this is the second time I’m quitting – the first time I was in bed for 4 days, vomiting, diarrhea, hot & cold sweats, sleepless. I am going to push through it. First time I was smoking 5 gr./day, this time only 1.5 gr/day Hoping this will go better. This drug has totally messed up my life. I got pneumonia last year, I am asthmatic, dumb huh? I ruined my job, messing up my family and my husband even was admitted to the hospital for a psychotic break and extremely high blood pressure at least in part the spice. Totally horrible drug.

    63. Nigel says:

      Okay, so I’ve looked around the web for stories, and help links. I found this site and I nearly read every comment all the way down. Here is my story, I’ve been smoking this brand of spice bought at the local smoke shop here called Diablo – cannot find any links to the actual brand of the stuff so I question it’s legit or not. But I’ve been smoking this for over a year now, and I’ve gone through some serious psychotic episodes with it – I am an Aspie as well, and have asthma. I’ve pushed my family and friends away, everyone at my job thinks I am insane. If I don’t have enough money to buy it every day. I feel like killing people. (not really but seriously in a dark state of mind) suicidal. I’ve naturally been depressed my whole life and I am a former marijuana smoker (regular, daily) but I quit smoking when I moved from Colorado, to California where I am now. I got a job so I cannot smoke pot but it helped with my psyche since I’ve been cold turkey on meds for all crazies, so I thought this Diablo stuff would help, and it did. When I have it, everything is bliss. I feel like I could just smile at nothing, but when I don’t have it – as I said. I grow angry, dark, depressed even more. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I’ve lost over 40 pounds but I gain it back, and lose it again. Since I work and get paid bi weekly – the battle to buy it everyday is killer for me. I also smoke cigarettes, and trying to live in society today. I’m starving just to smoke this shit. The worse part of this situation is that the brands of Diablo I like to buy, they stopped buying. So now I have to pay for a brand I cough like I got cancer every time just to make this goddamn feeling go away. Yesterday, I lost a $50 dollar bill. That’s a complete work day for me. I sat in the rain for 2 hours last night. Just to give an idea of the depression. I managed to quit this stuff once, when I went on a vacation for two weeks and I didn’t have any signs of withdrawal – knowing I couldn’t buy it anyway, out of state. But I swear, the moment I got back home, it’s like the devil said go buy it. Quitting pot was easier for me than this, So please if anyone reads this, you might actually save my life.

      • Jmoney says:

        Hey man, Ive been there done that. Including Diablo among 30 other brands I used. If its the same Diablo with the flaming skull on the front and a very colorful herb, it is very powerful stuff. Withdrawals are nasty I won’t lie. But in reality you just need to get to day 3 or 4 and you will be feeling better. I went thru the same withdrawals. Lack of sex drive, couldn’t eat, cold sweats, depression, cant sleep. Etc. You just have to get thru the first 3 to 4 days and the withdrawals are nearly gone. you will still crave it because you affiliate it with a good time. But the physical withdrawals should start to clear up after a few days and you will find your self interested again in TV. hobbies etc.

        • r says:

          I do not use but care for someone very much that does. He wants to quit, but is really struggling. I personally have greatly benefited from reading all the post on this support site to not only see those who are working toward sobriety from this junk but taking the time to enlighten and encourage those also struggling. Bless you all and I wish you best of luck.

      • josh t says:

        Nigel, my name is josh, I too have aspergers and I was a spice addict for over 4 years. I am also 9 months clean and involved in the program known as cocaine anonymous, I follow what’s known as the 12 steps of recovery. I found it very hard to quit and found that I couldn’t on my own, I went through withdrawals and hell, but I came out the other side ok. In the end I beat it though, with the help of others I haven’t relapsed since I came to the program and put in the work. Today I have my family and life back, in fact I’m better off now than i was before I even started. Recovery is possible, and there is a way. I can’t tell you what path to take, I can only tell you what worked for me, but if you find that when you use you can’t control how much you do, what you do to get it, or that when you honestly want to stop you can’t quit completely then you might want to seek outside help. It’s hard man, I went through it too, but you have to stay strong. Good luck nigel.

    64. cloudy says:

      Hey guys.. I just found this site after finally deciding with my bf its time to quit… I’ve had small withdrawals before from just being out and am really scared to go through the full cycle withdrawal. Help?

    65. David says:

      I am a former pot smoker, coke snorter, D.M.T tripper and i quit all these because i had no job and the fake drugs were cheaper, (at the time), I now know how bad legal drugs are on the mind and body. Im 1 year 8 months and 3 days clean and ive been doing drugs since i was 11 years old, Im 20 now, but after i started smoking spice i started mixing spices and i had EXTREMELY bad trips and i was still stupid enough to continue to smoke these drugs, and when i say i had bad trips, i had been doing dmt since i was 15 and seen unbelievable things and dmt is one of the strongest drugs on earth and those legal drugs i was doing were just not cutting it so i started mixing the spices together and i ended up having the scariest trip of my life, i had just hit the spice blunt and i was just waiting for it to kick in and out of no where i was looking down at my self, i was terrified my heart slowly fell out of my chest and i knew i was dying but as this was happening my friend robby came out side and started talking to my body and i could see him from above and he started yelling at me and out of no where i had opened my eyes and all i could see was golden rings around his eyes, he didnt even have a body but he was wanting to know what was wrong and i couldnt speak so he carried me in the house and from what he told me i ended up running through the house and yelling that i was gona kill everything, but what i remember i was in a dark room with the most evil demonic things you could think of and slowly being eaten and buried in a box made of colorful water and as i was dying i felt like nothing else mattered and i slowly over about 6 hours finally came back and i thank my friend robby for getting me in side and controling me but through all that i still was stupid enough to do it again and i didnt mix spices together again but i finally quit and the mental side affects were so bad that they are still happening to this day, but ive got to the point to where ive been able to live with it and since these things have happened i try to get other people off these drugs because ive jumped off the cliff and in to hell and i wouldnt want my worse enemy to have to face that. i have just resently found out how these scienctist make spice and it is scary knowing i put these chemicals in my body and almost all these chemicals are not tested so if you are deciding to smoke this shit or get high just smoke all natural weed.

    66. shlater says:

      iv read some interesting stories on spice users on here, heres my story. Started using spice while i was int he navy in 2010. smoked it every day dude, on the ship on the base you name the place on a military base and iv gotten high there. I was about to go on my last deployment and i smoked some k2 with this chick right. she runs out the house on a bad trip bare foot. brings the cops back to my place snitches on me. they find all my stuff, long story short other than honorable discharge, hardly any bennies no gi bill. Lost the love of my life cause i never really cared about anything even her. stuff does diminish your sex drive for real cause i would rather smoke and sleep than have coitus, big bang theory ref! me an my stupid freinds would only smoke blunts of the stuff. i smoked the bizzaro and went to get food at ruby tuesdays. i realized there was no chiken alfreado on the menu so i got way nervous and anxious, why? i dont know. the waiter was like dude you dont look good. so i went into the bath room and un loaded another side effect of it ,,, the runs. called my x to se if she would be nice enough to calm me down but she just hung up. went out side, next thing i know i realize its real dark and water is hitting me. im layin in the rain with everyone at rubies laughing at me!. god i felt like a retard. It took me so long to quit the first time. i would try to go fishing at the lake to get my mind of it then i would pass the gas station turn around an buy some. Id then roll a B take a hit feel guilty, then toss it out the window. did that about 10 times till i was about flat broke. Smoked some by the lake once and went into a hyperventalation attack. didnt realize i was making it worse on myself thinking i was going to die. So there i was completely cramped up from head to toe, panicing, sweating, O! and whom would have though here comes the runs again! Laying in the sand with mt pants down poopin all over the place. I had my phone out on and had 911 dailed but i just kept it up just incase. I was screaming for help but to no aval. Finally it went away an my dumb a** picks up the b and lights it right up. So i almost died and kinda ruined my life for a bit, ruined my military career so finally i stopped smoking and started a sick work out sched. i felt so good when i was off it like i had so much enegry. like if i didnt work out i couldnt sleep ause i had all this pent up energy and no girlfriend to help use that energy with lol. So i get out of the navy move back home with a old high schoold buddy who smokes the crap so yea i started back up. i was on it for about a year from the other day. Worst decision ever. Im a construction worker with a company truck so im always spiced out at work, on the job, operating heavy equipment, o yea i forgot to mention when i was int he military standing watch on a billion dollar war ships engine room tottally spiced out. but i was functional. I could go some where smoke in secret and show back up like nothing happedned. I kinda get off on being sneaky so that didnt help lol. Peoples lives were in my hands while i was high on the stuff and i feel really crappy for that, but my exuse was well im not the only one doing it right?, yes right but that doesnt make it right, right? So i stopped my work out sched, gained weight cause this stuff makes me binge eat. Latley my stomach has shrunk and i eat one meal a day. I never work out any more. im getting out of shape even with a building trades job. No motivation for anything besides joker spice and pirating movies on the couch. Im living on my friends couch cause the whole summer i smoked all my money away. My mom also recently passed away so that didnt help with trying to stop either. and my roomate and his dad that lives with us smoke it on the daily. His dad even had a triple by pass on his heart and smokes every day! To each there own i guess. All of my friends do it too so yea. So i finally spent all my cash, my car plates are expired, no insurance, no savings what so ever. So yesterday i decided that im going to quit for good this time. Here i am at 4 in the morning, no sleep, thing of paper towels next to me to wipe my sweaty pits and im sitting next to a open window in ohio in oct. Anxiety is through the roof! dam!. Im swaeting just typing this!. So i took this woman out for a dat the other week. Thing got interesting but when it came down for me to perfom, i couldnt,,,,… Very imbarrasing, im only telling this cause you dont want this to happen to you guys or girls. Yea it effect womens sex drive in different ways. The other morning i chucked all my stuff out on the high way for good! Staying clean this time for good! stopping isnt the problem, i just have to find something to occupy my time with other than sitting on the couch getting high. I Pride my self on how much will power i have so this time its cold turkey. For every one trying to quit and you cant, the only advise i have for you is that you are in control of your actions and its up to you to go into that store. no one is forcing you, you are forcing your self, do not be weak minded. It took me awhile to learn that but now i make way better life deccions. Iv bulit up such a tolerence to it i dont feel any difference when i smoke it so that helps too. But i would smoke it all day so maybe that was my “normal” And to the guy who said weed is like spice, your wrong. Weed was created in nature, spice was created in a lab. The with drawl and side effects of weed are different than spice. I smoked weed for a long time and never felt like this. Now i just got to get my roommates on quiting cause im sick of smelling that crap and all the dirty black hawkers in the bath tub like he cant spit it down the drain, just right next to it so it can dry up n chill, so dirty. Im on the right track and hope you guys are too. good luck to every one and i hope some one reads my story and goes wow what a idiot im never smoking that stuff lol.

        Andrew, stay strong. YOU will get through this and your life will improve. Your motivation and ability to make it so far is admirable.

    68. Michael says:

      Well, where to even start. I started about 6 months ago when I had severe depression, my best friend was the one who saved my life, not this, but once I started I couldn’t stop, still can’t. Whenever I’m pissed off, or sad I go straight to this. Then every time I would tell myself it would be the last, then the withdrawals hit. I couldn’t sleep, I lost 70 lbs from not being able to eat, and I would just be even more pissed off than before I smoked, because I would be going against my word. Not one of my friends or family know exactly what I’m going through, and now because of this stuff I lose control and yell at the first person who comes to mind from the pain of the withdrawals. I can’t control this addiction, and now I have royally screwed up the best dang friendship I’ve ever had, let’s face it, I’m 17 and a senior in high school with a promising future, but because of my addiction to this I may not be able to get that life.

    69. Ausjohn says:

      I’m 34 and in aus, after over 15 yrs of cannabis use I moved interstate and could not find a supplier, so, like many, turned to what they call Malibu here. After the recent crack down the shop stopped selling it. I am now in day 5 of my cessation. Well, not completely. I’ve spent the last few days scraping every damn thing I could to at least get one hit a day. But I know I have to quit, I spent over 8 months on this stuff and during that time: vomited almost every time, had palpatations, was a complete zombie, thought I had an insect living in my throat, couldn’t eat, quit my job, sold items to pay for it, wanted to die, saw no hope for the future, hated myself and my life, couldn’t shit even when I know I needed to and pushed hard….the list goes on. Now to qualify my situation. I’m degree educated, an engineer, was a functioning (sort of) addict on dope, but within months of using Malibu (or spice, whatever you know it as) came close to losing it all. My partner suspected and may well know, but never asked me. I’m determined to quit, but I must do it on my own. Because I’m ashamed. ‘Im not an addict!!’ But I am. Physically, I feel 1000x better now I’ve effectively stopped use, all symptoms have gone…barr the cravings. But compare to how I felt physical and emotionally, I know I can do it. Yes, this stuffs addictive, yes this stuff ruins your body, yes this stuff ruins relationships and yes, you WILL feel better once you stop. I love my girlfriend like nothing else and as I can’t seem to do it for me entirely, I use US as the motivation. Whatever works after all.

    71. Jeff says:

      Hey man I smoked spice for 6 months strait smoking 3 grams a day. Withdrawls were hell but you can get thru them. Expect to do nothing but sleep. After like 4 days I woke up and felt like a new person. Just hang in there. Don’t smoke anymore. It only prolongs the process. I’ve been clean for 3 months and it’s been amazing. Spice made me loose everything but I’m building back up

    72. lil says:

      Hi guys my little sister is try to stop shes been hooked on spice. shes 16 today is her 1st day without it. Its sucks seeing her like this, any advice? Anything that might have help with the sleep apnea and stomachaches

      • A Friend says:

        Stay with her. She’ll sneak off to fix her cravings the first few days if you aren’t careful.
        Sweating it out is going to happen. You can aide this process by finding a fun intense activity and doing it with her.
        Gatorade. Keep it in her.

      Hey, I battled with Spice for two years. It was one of those things that I look back and I am like….”what was I thinking?”. My addiction started with the weak stuff or “garbage spice” it did the trick for me at first but as I kept smoking I needed stronger spice or I would not feel any effects at all. I started to smoke some pretty potent stuff. Sometimes the trip was mellow where you looked like a stationary robot and other times I would litterally freak out. I remember being high on it and I ran into my buddies room and was in the fetal position for about twenty minutes saying “help me dude”. I remember as well the thinking I was going to have a heart attack and I just laid there freaking out and sweating. I knew I had a problem but kept telling myself “your in control you have nothing to worry about, your not hooked”. I would sometimes spend hundreds of bucks a week on this stuff. I always had to be high. I had to be high at the house, at the store, at work, walking the dog, working out, driving. I had to have it. I felt that if I didn’t have it, I would not be living life to the fullest. Until finally I said enough. Then came the withdrawals. Lack of appetite was something I had. My body would be hungry but my brain did not want me to eat, so sometimes I would not eat for an entire day or two. I was super hungry but my stomach hurt and I felt that if I ate, I would throw up. Then came the sweats and waking up about ten times a night with cravings. Then I felt depressed, thinking that my life was in shambles and there was no way out. sometimes I just wanted it all to end, I did not care if I lived or died. I never thought about killing myself but sometimes I thought to myself ” I don’t really care if I die or not, my life sucks” The thing is too, my life didn’t suck. My withdrawal lasted for about two weeks. It was something I never thought I would go through, but I did. I got past it though and It is one of those “learning by hard knocks” lessons that I learned.

      I found that a low dose of Benadryl will sedate you while going though the withdrawals without getting you high. It helps TREMENDOUSLY with the cravings and anxiety.

    75. Jay says:

      Help Help!!!! Please someone email me @ [email protected], I recently am coming off this mess after 3 years of use on and off. Today is day # 19 of detox and i have been to the doc with all clean blood work & healthy CT Scan no other test done. I recently a few days after quitting started to have really bad headaches, mild fever, the worst of all is the leg and thigh muscle pain like pins and needles. I also have ringing on and off in my ears, I am desperate for help. The doctors cant help, I know this is prolly withdrawal symtpoms but why is it taking so long????!!!Is my body healing itself??? Has anyone else suffered similar conditions like this???? I expect no diagnosis over here but would like to talk with someone whos had the same probs. The worst pain is the tingling and numbness throughout my body!!

    76. Dave says:

      Smoked for 3 years on and off it was so hard but I have made it today on day #19 of detox. I have had wierd withdrawals that I didnt experience while using spice. Has anyone had bad headaches along with the hot head and worst of all is the horrible leg cramps when I rest?!?! I beg someome for help to anyone who has experieneced problems like this what can I expect. I figured time is all I can do, I have had blood work and CT Scan with constrast showing no abnormalities. I know it will take time for the nuerons in the brain to heal and mainly just worried about the leg cramps. It makes me want to smoke to relieve the pain. Help:(

    77. Dylan says:

      Today I am looking into rehab. After two years of everyday smoking anywhere from 4-10 grams a day. Yesterday I binged. 3 trips to the store only hours apart 60 dollars gone and honestly no recollection of events, 15 grams in 6 hours. It was finally time. Hardest addiction. I’ve carpet crawled. I’ve scraped bowl after bowl for hours upon hours just to fall asleep in the bathroom. I’d make excuse as to why I needed it. Then wake up everyday beyond depressed. I would beg my wife to not let me smoke it. Don’t take me to the store, I’m quitting tonight””” famous words from me just to have a shitty 10 hour shift at work and break down and make her get It for me. I would seclude myself for the entire night. To fall asleep and wake up about 5 or 6 times to hit whether it was hookah bizzarro space cadet wtf omg scooby, just to fall back asleep and lucid dream. I sold almost everything I owned for it. I was in my own world. There was no such thing as consequences in my world. I would call out of work because I had a full bag of k2 left. I used to laugh. I used to smile. I used to love playing guitar. I used to love having friends. But because of k2 I no longer have any of those. I’ve been afraid of dying or just not caring. I can’t wait to be clean. I quit one time cold turkey for two months but if you do it one time you will get stuck. I felt so alive for those two months. I promise your lives will be better. It’s the hardest thing to do but do it for yourself. I love every single one of you for sharing this earth with me and I pray that we can save each other.

      This might be little rude, but I wanted to tell you I lol’ed at the “”coitus”” and the big bang theory. I’ve been watching that show for the first time this past few days started with season one. So when I read what you said, I got it right off the bat.

    80. shlater says:

      im about a month off of spice and i havnt felt better. One thing im curious about is that i was smoking it every day all day like every one else. But when i stoppep cold turkey i only had a few withdrawl symptoms. i couldnt sleep, sweating, i felt sore even though i wasnt working out. I live in cleveland ohio and im thinking maybe people out west are smoking something more powerful. But man i feel so good, sex drive is back, normal bowel movements, i work out and work very hard and i feel like my endurance and lung capacity has doubled. I no longer have coughing fits either. normal sleeping pattern also. And im finally moving out of my buddies house and off his couch. Best thing ever , quit while you can!

    81. Houston former dope fiend says:

      I done it all. Started with Serenity Now, went to klimax, then Down 2 earth, then space cadet, bizarro, but it wasn’t until I got these bags with a clear back on them till I started fucking up. Mary Jane, Fd up, Pure Fire, Freaky Friday. Candlemass, black Sabbath, slipknot too. Theres been alot of boo boo going around the state. But friday I purchased two 3 gram bags of Mad Hater cloud 9 and it was the worst experience of my life. Smoked a quater of a blunt, it was so strong and I thought I was gonna die!! I talked myself out of it. “Your a fucking professional synthetic weed smoker pussy, snap out of it”. Still tapped the blunt a couple times later after calming down. But I clicked this article and seen that Madd Hatter pic and threw the rest I had away. I showed my wife the article and she started ballin crying. I put my family threw hell for 4 years, they don’t deserve that. Im a sorry piece of shit!!! I got some making up to do!!! Special thanks to the writer of the article and the comments. Good luck fellow man/woman

    82. cynthia says:

      I was smoking the strongest brand in my city. Around 9 grams a day to be exact. the ONLY way i was able to quit was by checking myself into a rehab. I’m 2 weeks sober already, still get axiety attacks, but I mean in my situation rehab was my only hope. I ended up in the hospital because my body shut down on me when i was trying to quit on my own. the withdrawals can kill you in itself. Best advice… just check yourself into a rehab and go through the detox program. they will admit you and give you all the proper care you need to quit this horrible nasty drug.

    83. Penny says:

      Please show me the way to get of that shit. My husband ‘ve been addicted to that spice and weed. He tried to quit before but he’s always come back to it. He’s use all the money we have. Now we ‘re broke and I’m pregnant five and half months.

      • anonymous says:

        my wife and i quit. It took a shit load of willpower and before we were able to come out we were in a pretty damn dark place. I wish I could tell you something positive, but all I can say is it’s gonna suck. Keep trying.

    84. ccn says:

      So I am a ex fiance because of my other halfs addiction he has an addictive personality to begin with… hes been smoking this synthetic stuff for about 3week to a month in the past before he was in the military he said he used it… im a nurse and ive tried to help but it seems nothing im doing is helping….educating him on this…explaining withdrawls…yesterday he lied 4 times about having it in his possession…will say hes going to walk the dog and found him high as hell barely able to stand…. he says he trying to quit and taper off the amount I think hes doing 2grama daily… he got pulled over by the cops yesterday bc he was “dosing off” so he lied said his truck broke down and I picked him up I right away knew… ive offered him klonopin to help him with the aniexty… phenergan to help him with the nausea but denies everything … his family was willing to put him in an out patient rehab for 4500 but denies it saying he can do it himself… I had to call off of work last night because of how high he was and I was afraid of leaving him alone… wedding was cancelled because he denies he has a problem says he wants to stop but the craving is so strong…ive cried, parents have cried, hes cried, and hes on the verge of loosing everything… im lost at what to do….does he really want to quit.?? Even his parents tell me just to walk away hes 30 and we had our whole life planned…he says he just wants to feel normal… and thats what it does. ?.brings him down…. help…advice please anyone…

      • henry says:

        Have him read some of the stuff on this site. When he sees that other people are doing the exact same thing as him it should open his eyes. I know that worked for me

      • James says:

        I also started getting into spice in the military as a means to skirt drug tests. When I got out I stuck with it for a lot of reasons to numerous to go into here but depression (and an addictive personality) was near the top of the list.

        I don’t know what your ex’s military situation was but he’s probably a type A with a thing for adrenaline and getting out of the service, while having pros and cons, can leave you feeling empty and directionless. I would venture a guess that is why he is using to the point of numbness or dozing off.

        I wish I could give you sound advice to make him understand how much he is hurting everyone and how much it’s not worth it, but the truth is we’re a stubborn breed and quick to defend ourselves. The old saying “the worst thing you can do is call a drunk a drunk.”
        In general, we’re the kind of men that have to come to our own conclusions and I sincerely hope he sees the light soon.

        Ultimately what worked for my wife was getting me in touch with a VA clinic in our area that catered to vets transitioning out of the service. Wait til he’s in a good mood and tell him about getting help from the va and be supportive and all that, ultimately if the relationship and you being a family is important to him he will make the right choice.

        Now when he does come to that conclusion know withdrawl is hard…but here’s hoping he makes it that far

      • Alisha Ball says:

        He needs to see a psychologist if the only way he can feel “normal” is by being high. Something alot of people here could use from what it looks like, Personally, I would say weed is better and it does not harm the person, if he is looking for an alternative to spice that is less destructive. I do not know what state you live in but it is becoming legal.

    85. Nohra says:

      Hi everyone ! So my friend has tried spice only once, a month ago. He took 3 to 4 puffs … It was very bad at the moment but everything was better after his trip … After 2 to 3 weeks everything was still ok ,,, Now, he’s sometimes seeing stuff in 2D rather than 3D and he’s having this feeling of derealisation (like everything happening around him is fake or unreal) … Any help ? Why is he having those symptoms ? He just tried it once ! Is it going to last ?? Is it going to get worse ??

      • Davy Boy says:

        I had the same thing for a while. It took a month or so before I started feeling normal. If it gets too bad I would see a doctor. Maybe a neurologist?

    86. WP says:

      So im working on getting clean after a really bad binge episode lasting roughly 2-3 months smoking nearly 15 grams a day. I needed it to sleep, eat, survive. I really really hate coming off this shit and would love some advice as to help with the withdrawals. I just want to feel happy, I want to sleep, and I want to get my fucking shit together without planning my day around a synthetic drug. PLEASE HELP

    87. Outlaw says:

      I been smokin this shit for about 4 years. cleaned up and slipped back to it plenty of times. its rough. we were getting bomb ass shit from BR called dynamite, angelic, purple snake, sapphire. all kinda shit. if I don’t have it a couple hours after my last blunt I get jittery, clammy, sick and uncomfortable. cant sleep. throw up foam all day. the inventor of this disease causing dope should die a miserable death for creating some luepold we think we can legally and safely use to get high. wtf! this shit is worse than CRACK!! I recently got arrested for possession of this and some benzos and it really opened my eyes. this shit has hindered me from pursuing some of my goals. im 2 days without it now on this clean streak and still detoxin. I am voluntarily checking into rehab this week. I already filled the application. its a struggle to get clean from this alone so good luck to any of you who will attempt to clean up without help. it has never worked for me so I will just deal with rehab and get back to welding when im more stable and clear minded. make a sacrifice to better your own life and health. I feel for any and everyone who has an addiction to anything. seek help

      • Big dog says:

        Man I’m from Louisiana too Lafayette and we had all kind of strong kinds outhere too and I weld too, I been smoking since 2009 and didn’t miss to many days of being high and I had quit about 5 months ago and backslide for the hoildays and with that gap made me go harder me and the old lady got up to 20 to 25 grams a day

    88. lashesl says:

      i actually cant stop crying at how angry I am that these drugs are out there getting sold so innocently from corner shops. I am on DAY 2 of Coming off this drug and I wouldn’t wish this on anyone! I started smoking this about 2 years ago when I moved country n hadn’t sourced a dealer. so this was easy to get anytime u wanted it. I smoked a few 1 gram bags back then n it was way different than the real stuff… actually nothing like the real stuff… I then got a dealer and went back on normal weed.. then my partner was always going on at me for smoking weed weekdays n stuff. so I thought I would out smart him and buy the legal alternative.(less Smelly) and that was the start I would of put it in my rollies as if smoking a normal roll up and smoke it right beside him in the living room, him oblivious that I was getting hooked on the worst drug of my life! this went on for months me getting deeper and deeper hooked buyin at most 2 3 grams a week to at the end smoking almost 3grams a day!!! my body had built such tolerance to this drug that wen I smoked a joint the hit would last about 10 15 mins then o off to roll another and another till I noticed I hardly ever smoked a cig just as felt I was missing something didn’t make since so I say I was smoking about 15-20 joints a day of this stuff it had got to the point I would wake 3 times a night for a joint to get me back over to sleep but I wouldn’t of just smoked one maybe 2 or 3 In one wakening.. on tues I ran out about 5.30pm and I couldn’t believe how quick u start to withdrawl of this within a few hours I was going stare crazy… what am I ment to do? how can I sleep tonight (anxiety) didn’t no where to put myself (irritated) couldn’t sleep of course (insomnia) then awww this nausea feeling hasn’t left me since tues night. in the 48hrs I haven’t smoked this ive been sick about 4 5 times diorehaa a few times starting 4am weds morning jeez not even 12hours without at that point n i haven’t slept an hour didn’t sleep 1st night n didn’t sleep last night this morning at 5am I ran the bath to see if it would sooth….. nope by 6am I drove to get something to stop me feeling sick she gave me Pepto-Bismol to help with my tummy and I got nytol herbal sleeping tabs got home took the stuff for my tummy it takes the edge of I suppose but its still there. I then took 3 nytol recommended dose 2! it is now 6pm still no sleep ive spent the day coughing up mucus getting a clear liquid driping from my nose cold sweating warm sweating I get up walk to my bedroom don’t no y come back to living room again I cant eat I managed a slice of dry bread at about 3pm n a cuppa soup which was about 2 sips took… I really need to be pushing more fluids tho water tastes like metal n anything else the smell turns me. the smell of the air freshener in the hall made me vomit last night wtf?? I am still having the reoccurring thought of going to the corner shop and buying more n going to sleep… BUT TO HELL WITH THAT I AM FIGHTING THIS ADDICTION. I dont longer need this poison in my life. I told my bf all this morning and after the night I had I had the cheek to try blame him for making me end up like this as sure he forced me away from my normal legal weed. After them words the realisation of blaming everything any anyone but the one thing that was causing the harm woke me up big time… I have spent all day online reading people stories the successful the not so successful. ive read it from the addicts point of view a sisters point of view a husband + wifes & mum+dads point of view… and bloody hell it affects every1 involved in your life.. I have been a zombie for the last 6months and I want to break free… even tho I am feeling worse I have ever in my whole life yet n reading on here day 3 is going to be worse n a complete nightmare with your willpower, so im goin to work with my bf so I dont relapse he really is my rock I don’t deserve him but im am changing not only for myself but for everyone who knows and loves me.. and for all you addicts out there I cant preach tho I wouldn’t of seen what it was doing to me either.. ur light will come on and you will realize lets hope u realize sooner rather than later tho and wee can all beat this ridiculous LEGAL HIGH……… I will post again and let u no how the withdrawls go im starting to feel the mussel pain already due to lack of sleep..
      I just hope this makes since

      • James says:

        This is my exact story almost and I’m just now getting to the point where I’m realizing what has been happening, and what has to happen. Been smoking the stuff off and on for probably 2 1/2-3years. The nausea is the most unbearable thing for me and it’s pretty much within the first 4 hours of quitting. Can you update how you are 3 weeks into it? Did anything help with nausea and the lack of appetite.

        • kaykay says:

          Are you still not smoking? I am quitting tonight and know just from running out before that i will have vomiting withdrawals. How long did they last for you?

    89. lashesl says:

      hey guys im now reaching the end of day 4 off this drug,, and what an emotional rollercoster it has been and gonna continue to be, so after my last comment I finally was able to sleep that night I slept from about 11pm-2am woke up covered in sweat that bad my pj’s had to be pealed off me. i then stood in a cool shower n moved onto the sofa, i then went online and still feeling nausea and hot i was getting a pain in my lower back i can only think of being my kidneys as was so de-highdrated sipped on a glass of water n surprisingly fell back to sleep around 5am waking again at 7.45am soaked with sweat again, day 3 i was able to stomach a slice of toast in the morning and i decided not to got to work with my partner as he was going to be away to 8pm and i wouldn’t of been able to cope that long.. i spent the day mostly in the house until some1 decided to come and view a car we are selling of course i had to go down n clean it jeez sweat tripping me no breath looking like death warmed up i was then sick as was too much to handle. my bf came home to show them the car of course and i retreated back to our one bed apartment to continue the hell of course. i found this day really hard as i was on my own till my bf got back at around 9pm he kept me company foning me but i needed him here! i didn’t think of food all day, i did manage to give a f**k about the state of the place tho and by the time my bf came home i had managed to hoover and everything..(keep yourself busy) again that night i didn’t sleep till about 6am after vomiting of course to 9 am was really driving me crazy last night the insomnia as i am sooooooo tired just my mind cant concentrate long enough to sleep… today, day 4 i braved all elements and and got up got a shower decided i wuld put make up on nice jeans top etc to make me feel better and went into the town to help my bf do his Christmas shopping and the sweating just constant beads of sweat on my face make up came off n again returned to lookin like crap felt so sick had to buy more tummy remedy it helps and ibpuphen for my sweating to reduce my temp it didn’t work im sweating these chemical’s out of me was so embarrassed constantly sweating. wee had to walk past the shop i would of bought this crap from my bf wanted to go in and go mental i talked him out of this, but my bf god love him bought me some new clothes to cheer me up tho that was a struggle as my concentration is ruined i get so agitated i was gonna put everything back n make us walk out of that shop just had to get out tho he stayed and got me them anyways i don’t deserve him at all :'( i cant concentrate on anything talking im forgetting wat im saying or repeatin myself which is scary im feeling vulnerable in situations and just not in a good frame of mind at all i did eat half a sandwich and as my bf’s says a birds portion of dinner and able to drink a lot more now so getting there. cravings are going slowly but surely i think this experience has frightened me so much tho that i am thinkin of goin T total all together….. it is def not easy for me the SWEATING is the WORST!!! just makes you so uncomfortable sticky agitated just want it to stop and the INSOMNIA of course, thing i have found that are easy to stomach dry bread Cranberry juice and luazade (sports energy drink) and defo get a upset tummy remedy u wont be able to do this without that for sure!!! also today i started multi vitamins so maybe stock these to. if u don’t feel like eating force the 1st mouthful down little amounts is goin to be better than nothing x x i no this is full of mostly unusefull information but it is getting better i have spoke to my bf more in the last 4 days than i have in the last 6months and its great 🙂 I WILL BEAT THIS.. over and out..

        You will beat this I’m going through the same thing now as I sit here typing this my boyfriend got called into work from 9pm to either midnight or 4am and I had a huge panick attack when he told me I had to make him pick me up and drop me off at his house in order so I could have peace in mind I was looking forward to waiting for him rather then smoking it’s hard but reading these make me feel much better and the cravings for spice go away

    90. former Houston dope fiend says:

      ***Update 1 month and 2 weeks sober and I’ve never felt better!!! Sleeping without waking up, havent had to vomit, better work performance, more $$$ and family is better than ever.At first my withdrawals were out of control, feeling like I was gonna die without it, always going bact to it. Ever heard the saying ” you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to”. The same way I talked myself out of a bad trip; is the same way I talked myself into never smoking aromatherapy again. The Devil still tries ways to bring it back in my life all time, but I keep faith in God and believe in myself and know we will prevail. Also lost alot of wieght due to Malnutrition in my first 2 weeks. Eat something/anything. I would nibble on something till I finished it, even if it tooks hours to eat a meal

      hello guys, i’m in my 4th day. same symptoms as you guys. 1.sweating 2.insomnia 3.depression . anyway the best thing that helped me hot showers. take a bath 2 times a day it’s good. good luck guys

    92. CoffinDancer says:

      I used to smoke synthetics. It started when I was trying to stay clean off pot to find a job in a new city. A friend introduced me to synthetics with the promise of keeping clean piss. So, being an addict, I gave it a go. I was vomiting several times a day. Couldn’t stop coughing. Couldn’t eat. Kept waking up every two hours at night just to smoke a bowl. Then I quit synthetics and went back to pot. It was weird at first since I was smoking the more heavy duty synthetics. Anyways, fast forward 18 months and I am now in a new city looking for a job again. I stumble in to a local head shop and guess what I find? Synthetics for cheap. I bought a 3 gram bag and thought I was doing well by making it last almost a week. As soon as that last bowl was toasted the feeling hit me… I gotta have more. That quick and I am back addicted again. I sweat all night. Feel nauseous all day. As we speak I am waiting for my girlfriend, who does not smoke, to wake up so she can take me to get my, now, third bag. It doesn’t take years to get hooked on this shit. It literally takes just one bag. So be careful what you put in to your body.

      • Jay says:

        Every two hours waking up seems to be the trend that’s all I did was wake up every two hours to smoke a bowl and fall asleep like a zombie and wait for the hours for the headshop to open it’s doors At 6am in the morning now that I look back I feel ashamed and embarrassed that I did all that to get just one bag I would sleep next to my bf waiting for him to wake up so he would drive me to the headshop and I’d get my fix little did he know is that’ he doesn’t know what I went in there for

      • Brandon says:

        Chlortabs work for the sweating. You can buy a bottle of em at walmart for like $2.99. I would take one before bed and one when i woke up. Its like magic.

    93. DontDoIt says:

      My husband had a seizure from spice withdrawal. Pease, if you use, find a support system to help you quit and if you have never tried it, don’t! I would never wish the experience on anyone. I was convinced he would die or suffer permanent brain damage…no one knows what these chemicals can do to your brain or body. The manufacturer doesn’t cRe. They just want to make a profit. This new trend toward spice will be our generation’s version of coke, crack and LSD in past generations.

      • PeteyGLaFlare says:

        Please don’t compare spice to LSD. Spice is bad. LSD is not addicting and does not cause withdrawals, it’s a very spiritual mind opening experience which is great on occasion, can be very theruputic and can even stop depresion. Spice is on the other hand is addicting, has withdrawals, and is not mind opening at all.

    94. HangingIn says:

      I quit three days ago… and everything is the same as y’all. Its hard. My boyfriend and I was terrified that quitting would inevitably End us. We are quitting together and are doing great (besides sickness and sleeplessness!) We are helping each other more than expected.. so glad to to be free and see what great things are to come! Thanks to everyone!!

        I quit about a month ago, I know what your going through. My advice, stop eating solid foods, and drink, your only going to vomit it up. Drink plenty of water and if you can maybe some apple juice. Water is important because you will get dehydrated. You will need to take some time off work, if possible 2 weeks. Get plenty of rest, and let it run it’s course.

    96. rob says:

      Getting some cramps in my foot. Ive also got stomach aches and feeling like crap. Been smoking for 3 years on and off. Day 5, have been drinking to get my mind off it. But have to stop that to. Aint going to help. Everyone be strong. You can do it. Id rather have weed any day then this stuff. At least its natural.
      I guess just keep Occupied and stay strong. I pray for everyone that we get off this stuff. Question is why are the governments allowing it?

      Peace to all 🙂

    97. Lyman Toledo says:

      i am making the decision to quit today and i have made this decision before. could never stick to it. but i am so tired of being sad and angry and dependant on this drug. i need someones help. please help me!

      • r says:

        Lyman, I wish you the best and assure you that you deserve to do so this for yourself. I am proud of you for taking this step. God bless. I have watched my son take on this struggle and has come a long way. Like you he talked about sadness and anger. He has begun to look better, feel better and much less sad and angry and back to his old self.. I am so proud of him and see that same conviction in you. Have faith in yourself, respect yourself and others. You can beat this. Good luck & God Bless

        • Lyman Toledo says:

          I appreciate your feedback. It’s reassuring to know that there is someone out there who supports me. I am happy for your son. I hope he never relapses and continues to be happy. You’re right. We all deserve happiness. 🙂

      • meravian says:

        • Lyman Toledo says:

          Cold turkey is hard. I’ve done what you’re doing. It didn’t work for me. But I wish u the best of luck and please updates on your progress.

    98. keeping it clean says:

      Today is officially my 14th day off synthetics and I can tell you that I’m one of the ones that’s still dealing with the withdrawal side-effects but I’m keeping off it. I’ve had to take half a week of work due to lack of sleep and lack of appetite and the sweats are annoying but again, it’s the best thing to do for me.

      • darlene says:

        Oh my goodness!! 2 weeks? And still having withdrawal symptoms? This is only my 6th day. And my stomach is so messed up!!! I have been sitting here reading for about 30 mins. It has been helpful and informative. Good luck to you! I really hope you feel better very soon! And I won’t have to go that long!!! Lol!!!! Anyone have any suggestions to deal with the nauseating feeling that is almost constant?

    99. Kari J. says:

      I’ve been off it for almost three weeks and I still have nausea, back and neck pain, vomiting a few times a day. Feeling like the walking dead… I don’t know how I’ll get through it but I already know I will I don’t even miss using after about a week I just want to get through this… Get a job… Show some strength to the people I love. I just know I wish I’d never tried to pass a piss test about two years ago now…

    100. noname says:

      How can I get my boyfriend to quit? He smokes like 3 grams a day. Its almost like he isn’t even here most of the time. He is asleep standing up half the time. He barely can talk, walk, function. What can I do to help him. How long are the withdrawals and how do you lower the withdawals. Please help what can I do?

      • Trying to help says:

        He’s not gonna quit unless he wants to, or he’s forced to. I didn’t quit until the place I was buying from ran out of their supply. And my withdrawal symptoms lasted almost two weeks, and I smoked about 3 grams a day for about a month.

      • Jay says:

        Yeah he won’t quit unless you call the police on the place he gets it then he won’t be able to 🙂 has to go through withdraw anyways that’s what happened to me and after a week I was fine but that’s cause I was reading these stories and helping myself see this shit was killing me the place that I used to get it from is reselling it but now I have no desire in doing it and if I do I feel so guilty And like I’m backstabbing my family

    101. PeteyGLaFlare says:

      Well, y’alls stories really confirmed to me this stuff is no good. I have been smoking it on occasion mostly evenings, wouldn’t say I’m full blow addicted, but I better stop now before it gets out of hand. I have some really potent stuff, I bought a 2.5g bag 5 months ago, you only need a tiny hit in a one hitter and sometimes even that much gives me bad anxiety. Gonna toss the rest (yes, theres still some left, unbelievably that 2.5 bag has lasted me about 100 uses). No more, I always regret using it, takes a lot out of me and isn’t even fun.

    102. J says:

      Im am in complete shock right now, everything has just connected. My ex disappeared for a month or so and when he finally came back and let me spend a couple days with him he acted weird he was always hot and sweating super bad, he has always sweated since he has extra sweat glands so I pushed it aside. He would throw fits and just act crazy but I just thought he was just a little emotional…he would barely eat and when he did hed just throw it right back up. He had trouble sleeping. Everything I pushed aside because he swore up and down it wasn’t drugs, now he has ran off again..I cant believe this..

      • Michael Faust says:

        It sounds exactly like what my poor family has gone through with me. Beware of physical withdrawals and permanent elevated heart rate, high blood pressure and panic attacks. He needs to understand that it’s NOT like marijuana. It’s like marijuana’s SINISTER twin brother. Prolonged acid and meth use together will not even behave as this monstrosity does. I know there’s a lot of b.s. and exaggeration in chat rooms, but I am speaking from experience and honestly hate this drug. (For the record, I don’t condone meth, it can be nasty as well… but this new BEAST!!!) I’m on day 5 of absolute sobriety and symptoms continue to persist. YHWH and nutrition, along with honest communication with family is how I’m getting through. I know we take a risk with any drug or alcohol we put in our system but I believe the marketing on this one duped MANY. He might be feeling ashamed and needs support. For many who had never touched drugs it might have been viewed as a tea, alcohol, tobacco or any other over the counter mainstream product (I don’t have the luxury of that excuse, I thought it’d be a weak marijuana) being flashed in our faces by big business. This drug is a poison also because of a lack of regulation. I picture what our billion dollar pharmaceutical industry would look like if not overseen. If he has no experience dealing with addictions and drugs, he will need to find coping skills that replace the time spent doing drugs. TOGETHER you will get through this because as Yahushua said, “This too, shall pass.”

        • Jarred says:

          Got news for you brother, I’ve been clean from spice for over a full year and I still suffer from the side effects of my overdose on it. Extreme anxiety and paranoia, disassociation, panic, all of it completely unprovoked. Not a single day has passed where I didn’t think of my overdose or regret it. I was smoking 10 grams every three to five days until I had an overdose. Haven’t been the same since then and no one can seem to find out how to fix me and make me normal again. The psychotic breaks will be permanent.

      • Jay says:

        I almost Lost my relationship to this drug I used it for 2 years he was almost at his breaking point in leaving me until I read all this and made me realize how bad it is worse then anything I would of imagined

    103. Michael Faust says:

      Can I have it? JK. But really, that’s the first horrible thought that pops in mind! I’m on day 5 of being clean. Horrible.

      • JayJay says:

        I relapsed after a year of sober ness at first I went cold turkey and was fine after a week of dealing with cold sweats panic attacks and anxiety wich now that I am quitting again but not cold turkey don’t persist I’m going from 30 grams a day to about 4 grams a day until I only use it about once or twice a week and then I’m completely letting it go it’s been 4 says since I have not been smoking that much all day and distract myself and go with my family and bf and things I used to do before this took over my life granted I’m still smoking a little so I don’t get the panic anxiety and sweats I’m feeling better today and getting my appetite back I’m seeing clearer and thinking better the more I smoke now the less I want to do it because I’m doing things I rember doing and I don’t get the attacks because they are mearly In you’re head so as long as I keep telling myself il get through this and my bf and family supporting me since I finally broke down to them that I had an addiction I feel like I will surpass this again and never fall back into it did I mention I live in Tampa the biggest producing of spice is here in Tampa but it’s notoriously going away the faster these stories are coming out.

    104. Jay says:

      I think staying at your job and not taking time off made your sympotims last longer because I was working during my withdrawl and If I wasn’t I kneew I’d be skrewed I actually had to ask for overtime in order to keep me away

    105. adry says:

      My boyfriend and i are attempting to quit FOR THE FOURTH TIME. This crap has literally ruled my life. We were smoking more than ten grams a day EASILY, everyday for about 10 months. Spending about 40-60$ a day at our local headshop. Ive practically sold everything that i own that a pawnshop will take. Were actually laying in bed, sweating for no reason, sicker than dogs. Weve been running back and forth to the bathroom all night. I wish that we had never started this crap. Its so bad. But, thats not even the worst part. K2 has officially given me chrons disease. It sucks but thats what i get. And im only 16. BUT THESE ARE ALL (except chrons of course) SHORT TERM EFFECTS. Imagine what the long terms will be.

    106. tim trout says:

      Really, u dont have a psyical problem with it. If a bag lasted me that long i would still be smoking it. That would last me about 2 hours, seriously. U sound like you were very responsible with it.

      • Michael Faust says:

        He says he’s not full blown addicted. Any behavior can be habit forming and psychologically addictive.

    107. Petey says:

      Iv been curled up on the end of my bed for the last 2 days feeling crook as a dog, keep getting stomach fits where I feel like I need to spew (last a good 15-20min) and that was before actually throwing up, it’s fucked I’m feeling ok right now but I can tell in the next half hour I’m gonna be feelin it again, I was litterally leaning over the end of my bed spewing into a bucket all the time just wishing I was dead already (I’m not a suicidal person would never do that) so u could understand that was freaking me out, not gonna lie I had lots of fun with fake weed lots of good times but would I go back and do it again? FUCK NO! Stick to real weed or if ur like me and need to pass a DT just have a couple beers or something fuck this shit ass drug off I know if I keep taking it it will just ruin my life so it’s time to take a stand for myself why I still can! And if I can push through these withdrawals feeling as fucked up as I have the last couple days then I truly believe anyone can! FTF! Fuck the Fake!

    108. JDS says:

      To anyone that has been clean for over three months; how long do the unusual bowel movements go on for? [i.e. Diarrhea, mucusy stool, frequent bowel movements]
      For background, I have smoked for probably around three years or so, not daily the entire time, but it fluctuated. I made and sold for a while and that didn’t help things having access to multiple ounces at once. At my worst I likely smoked 3ish grams daily, if not a little more. I have been clean for roughly two months after a foolish stint with the straight chemical over a week and a half just after quitting for about a month. Withdrawal was rough as hell, with similar symp;toms to the rest of you [headaches, sleeplessness,coughing up black shit, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, general pain] Now, I am only left with diarrhea [not all the time] or a mucusy stool, and cloudy urination at times. I eat very healthy and between three or four times a day, as my appetite has returned and my energy. My sleep is generally regular at this point, as well. I only worry about my stomach anymore.
      Thanks for your time!

      • Michael says:

        It will go away eventually i suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and i smoked for 3+ years. What helped me was just drinking plenty of water at least 6 bottles or more at least for me that helped. i’m 8 days sober off this and i feel so great I can’t explain and my metabolism is on track again. My buddy had the same problem and he took laxatives he said and it helped him flush the remaining toxins out but if they continue I would check up at the doctors office. Has it gotten better overtime a little bit?

    109. DMF says:

      I don’t know what to do anymore but I know if my husband continues this crap I have to abandon my marriage. For better or worse will not hold us together. I can no longer sit back and watch him kill himself and see the hurt it has caused me and our children. I want him to get help but I know he has to do it on his own. I told him yesterday we are threw, he says no,but we are…..if he cant save himself, he sure cant save our marriage. I am torn/.

      • sc says:

        I know this isn’t what you want to hear, he needs you. It really is so hard. He loves you but the drug makes one feel pathetic and incapable. I couldn’t have done it alone.

    110. nick says:

      i had to start smoking weed again for 2 weeks to help with the withdrawals. im done now.. but HOLY FUCK what a nightmare that was..i didnt even notice i was addicted until last month..these chemicals are no joke.. just stick to weed and take ur chances with fake pee, freinds pee, etc. or dont smoke at all if you need to pass a drug test..i am personally taking a risk by smoking weed because if i dont. i know i will go back to spice. and thats too dangerous and just not worth it.ruined what couldve been a very good 3 months of my life

    111. nick says:

      getting addicted to spice is not worth passing a drug test, you will do far more harm to yourself being addicted to spice than you would failing a drug test for pot

    112. Brandon says:

      Its been a month since i quit. My symptoms were horrible as fuck. I went through the diarrhea stage, extreme sweating, loss of appetite and the lack of sleep. Idk if its just me, but i seemed to get these bad night terrors. I was able to shake all that, but i recently picked up these bad headaches. They’ve stuck around these past few days and they last all day. Another thing, i have been havin cloudy urine and Im kinda worried. If anyone has answers please feel free to reply. Thanks. One more thing.. When i was goin through the sweat stage i was able to find out how to stop it temporarily. I went to walmart and bought a bottle of chlortabs for $2.99. I would take one before I went to bed and one when I woke up. Its like magic.

    113. shadow ibm says:

      Give up the spice in pick up a book called tools for freedom life ain’t easy then you learn how to walk thru walls in don’t watch the zombie tube everthing hidden in playing sit e let big brother keep the spice the nwo made spice bathsalts dragon fly smiles lsd cia

    114. Alexis says:

      On January 3, me and some friends smoked what we thought was just regular weed, but the person who dropped it off lied to us and actually gave us spice. It didn’t affect my friends like it did to me.. But To me “the weed” sort of off and I questioned it due to the fact that I have smoked ATLEAST 8 times before and I’m pretty sure I know it should look like. To me it was darkish green but I just shrugged it off and smoked. We had a dime of this stuff and there were 3 of us so we smoked it all. I noticed something was wrong when I forgot what conversation I was having with a friend and that everything seemed slow and my heart beat was the only thing I can feel. Yesterday was a month since it happened and I’m still having a dream like feeling, visual distortion, numbness (which makes me more scared) feelings that I’m someone else, and when I talk the sound of my voice doesn’t feel like I’m actually saying it..extreme anxiety due to the fact that I don’t feel like myself and just freak out because I don’t understand how things are happening and how I am a human and sleeping is not easy. I somewhat mix my dreams with reality since everything feels like a dream, and intense nightmares rage I’m having another trip.I just want to feel better. I’m only 15 and I just want to live my life normally Has anyone gone through this and got better like back to the way they were before smoking spice? If so please reply to this, it would give me the hope I need.

      • Sam says:

        Similar situation. I once thought I was smoking cannabis (after a long night of drinking) and felt disconnected from my body for about a week. Some people just have that reaction. Thankfully, after one hit I had a full on psychotic episode so my symptoms went away more quickly than yours. It just sounds like you consumed more so are having a slightly more intense and longer adverse reaction. You will be fine with time, I promise. It just takes time for your body to detox itself. If you want it to go faster exercise and sweat and drink plenty of water. Best of luck!

    115. Michael says:

      Hi everyone, I’ve been on spice for a little over 3 years smoking bongs batties, bowls and i just gave up on it 4 days ago and if you are a person that has just started or is addicted…. get HELP! This drug is addicting to the point where it’ll fuck with you mentally and physically and the withdrawals people i would rate up there with heroin, not exactly that bad but you will experience withdrawals and they are extreme.I can barely eat anymore, i feel sick all the time now and my headaches won’t go away, i can’t go the the bathroom at all which can really kill you inside, i became dependent on it and it ruins relationships with friends and family and I’ve seen it and plus…. i feel sad mentally because it tricks and fucks with your chemicals in the brain but i will push through. I’ve easily done over 100 blends including cloud 9 products and mad hatter which was by far the strongest incense you could ever get a hold of. The cravings are intense and mentally i feel fine….. like i still have my realization on life and my goals and everything is still real to me. I could easily do over 5g’s with my buddies and it builds up mucus and snot in your system which can cause chest coughs and pains, breathing problems, heart attacks etc. I still feel like my normal self and my life goals will be achieved but i hope my story can help anyone on here and anywhere. I don’t want to see any of you go through what I am right now. It’s intense people, and I’m surprised that i’m not 6ft. into the ground. I’m a 21 year old and if you would like to message me [email protected] Even small talk helps me with my cravings and if you have parents or anything….. stay in touch with them or hang out with them….. it really does help people. God Bless and stay strong,,,,, “MIND OVER MATTER”

    116. Sean says:

      I’ve been smoking synthetic for about 5 years now if you can believe it started my junior year in high school because I came up dirty for pot on a drug test so I got tested every time they had one. Then one night I’m hanging out with a couple of friends at my house boat and he says “here bro smoke this you can get and still pass the test’ that was the beginning of something terrible. By my senior year I was smoking everyday went to school high off it everyday. When I graduated nothing went according to plan couldn’t stand to look at myself in the mirror without it. moved to a new city where its a little more expensive so if found myself selling/pawning anything I could to get the money for it; found myself not being able to eat or sleep without or even be in a good mood. they banned in the city in about 4 days ago and I feel terrible with the withdrawal symptoms I’m surprised this stuff hasn’t killed me yet if my mom can get off herion then I can get off this stuff and stay off its all about will power

    117. fdqw says:

      my life is been crazy since i started smoking spice ive smoked all types of spice but the worst one only had the word stuff written in hazey letters that is the only thing that the pack said it was a 4 gram pack just like the others that i had bought so i thought it was a new kind so i bought it the first half of the bag was fine got a real good buzz the last part of the bag it got crazy first my girlfriend trips out and thought she was dieing call the ems and all her blood pressure was so low they could barely find a pulse it lasted about 30 min the next day the very same bowl her brother daddy and cousin they all took one hit a peice and instantly went into panic mode started tripping out every one of them we all stopped smoking for about a week then started back been smoking it for about 4 years me and my girlfriend still smoke it and are broke as hell her brother and cousin both stole until they went to jail for trying to get high i still cant bring myself to quit

    118. Soldier says:

      I have smoked only for a month. After my second week, I started having episodes while smoking that I couldn’t recall; odd expressions, confusion, muscle spasms, inaudible speech, inability to speak, spikes of fear. I never knew I was experiencing this, but one of the days, my friend recorded me while having an episode. That immediately scared the piece out of my hand. I am a firefighter in the army. I chose spice to cope with deployment, and to avoid drug tests. It has gotten me in trouble and kept me from being able to help people, and rather me running a call to a patient, I was and am the patient. The high is not worth the crash, it’s also not worth the damage to your body. I currently can’t sleep when I want, and have hot flashes and cold sweats all through the night. I can’t eat without feeling exhausted from simply chewing. I can’t do any sort of cardio or my heart rate will spike instantly. Since I’ve been off it about 4 days, these symptoms are slowly getting less noticeable. As someone who is surrounded by EMS all the time its most definitely not fun being on this side of the spectrum. I’m quitting without any hesitancy, I over this. I hope most everyone else here will do so as well, find another addiction, like working out or just the idea that you want to live. I’m not an addict with drugs, so I know that my two cents won’t put a dent in the mental battle your having; but know that spice is being target nationally by DEA and other drug administrations because of its lethality. If you don’t want to cut your life short. Please quit.

    119. Milk does a body good says:

      To those of you that genuinely want to quit I have the following encouragement. I am now 1 week free of this scourge and you can do it with minimal withdraws. If you like the taste of milk, I found that whole milk solved all my problems minus the heat flashes. I used baths to counter those and the natural cold weather we are having to counter that. I was able to keep down WHOLE milk and keep on weight due to the high calorie count. After your first 2 days on milk you can start adding in toast and by the end of the week you will be eating full on sandwiches. I was smoking this crap for over 2 years straight and I just did it cold turkey. I had tried many times to quit before with failure due to the intense vomiting and malnutrition it was causing me. YOU HAVE HOPE!!!!! Don’t just chug milk but sip it throughout the day and it will naturally settle your stomach and give you all the essential nutrients you need to survive this week of hell. I tried every other method with no success until I tried this remedy after an old doctor advised it was a good stomach settler when taken over a period of time. I finished a large sandwich with meat cheese and veggies and feel fantastic now. The cravings to smoke are gone and now I know I WILL beat this bullshit that I should have never started. It will also make your stool solid and help you fight dehydration. Hope this information helps at least one other person battle this and win!!!!

    120. Ryan says:

      I was addicted to these aswell, I only quit a few days ago after the “high” was replaced with headaches. It felt like I had a mini stroke and my brain was dieing on me. I was freaking out it’s now Sunday, I quit on Tuesday. I take propranolol and if I do not take them I get pressure in my head, I think this is blood pressure or something? I want to know what it is. If not away in few days I will be going to doctors GUYS DO NOT FUCKING DO THIS SHIT IT WILL FUCK YOUR LIFE UP IT WILL MAKE YOU BRAIN DEAD AND GIVE YOU BRAIN DAMAGE. I AM FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE, do not be a labatory rat, THESE DRUGS ARE WORSE THAN HEROIN!

        You are so right! I have watched my boyfriend pawn his stuff, nod out like a heroin junkie,and he won’t give it up no matter what. I am about to leave him for good. I need to love me more than I love the way I get treated when he can’t get his [email protected] I am not with any government agency, in fact as a patriot i am on government watch lists.This drug is horrible.

        • Ryan says:

          It really is, 2 months down the line and my brain is fucked up. I can’t tell you what is wrong because I have not been to the doctors but I think I have permanent amnesia. I don’t remember anything from my past, brief things and barely seeable pictures. I use to be able to think and imagine images in my head, I can’t do that anymore instead it’s replaced with like I don’t know what it is but it’s not good. I cry usually every few days because of what it’s done to me. I am usually never happy anymore and I just hope I can live my life and hope my body forgives me for what I have done to it. Also have a strain or this weird feeling on my heart.

          I started around 20th December 2012, smoked over 700 grams within a year. quit for real on February 2014. Most I ever smoked was around 30 grams in like 4 days.

      I am currently on night 3. Ive smoked synthetics the last 4 months anywhere from 1-2 grams a day. I’m now starting to feel better. I’m not going to tell my story (I could probably write a few paragraphs) but every story on here is pretty much the same: cold sweats, nausea, diarrhea, insomnia. It does get better. This site really made me come to realize what was going on. Good luck to you all.

      • reggie says:

        Only thing to do is just keep moving forward bro. I also lost the women I love and my family threatened to kick me out multiple times. I just quit last week and life is so much better and clearer without it. I sold anything worth value, stole scrap metal, ripped ppl off. Also noticed that I can think with clarity. Just stay strong bro it will all be worth it in the end.

        • hessdog says:

            I’m 23 and I’ve been smoking this for 3 months, before that a everyday all day pot smoker up until my partner got fly out work we decided to both go onto this synthetic weed. WORST DECISION I ever made! I’m quitting today! Thank you everyone for your posts. It really isn’t actually worth it, no matter how bad your life may be, just watch what this shit will do!! Wish that see you next Tuesday of a brother never suggested it to my partner!

      Hey Guys,
      Day 3 of my quitting has been a partial bust… I broke down and scraped my pipe and found a whole lot of partially smoked stuff… Decided to just do it out of boredom. Damn fell for brains little tricks again. Anyways, My experience so far has been a fight, forcing what little food I can down my throat, not being able to sleep, feeling bad… Maybe this little failure will be my only, and I won’t drive 50 Miles and Pay 50 Dollars for 3 Grams, just to repeat the process the next day…. This “drug” has got one hell of a grip… Buyers Beware.

      Hey guys, I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you. You’re stories have helped me in ways you would never know. Knowing there are people that are going through the same shit as me, and even worse shit, gives me hope that these withdrawals will soon subside and Ill be back to my old self. Ive been smoking spice on and off since 2011 since my first experience with Diablo, and after that I would go to my local shop and start buying it every now and then and I definately wasn’t hooked yet. Then I moved to, away from all my friends and the people that kept me grounded, but luckily there was no smoke shops selling it in the area so I was good for awhile, until I visited my friend and found out his smoke shop had spice, and for great prices. Thats when it started, at first, it was simple I would buy it only if I came to his house which was only once a month at the time, my tolerance was crap so one hit I was good so that bag lasted. But then I met an amazing girl who didn’t know I was smoking it, but I made the personal choice to quit, luckily I wasn’t going through withdrawals, but then she dumped me for some other guy and that broke me so I went back to smoking spice a little bit more than usual. My tolerance was rising, the highs were getting better, then I quit again because I was starting a new job, yet again I wasn’t going through withdrawals. But then I started getting paid, and the job was really stressful on my body, the 1 hour commute at 4 in the morning stressed out my mind, and the almost 2 hour commute home in traffic destroyed my spirit when I contemplated what I was doing with my life and what I should do. Then thats when it really started.

      I bought spice and it made me feel amazing, I could wake up without a problem, the drives were much easier, even the physical strain on my body was worth it. I started smoking spice every day after work until I went to sleep. No big deal right? Well then my tolerance started rising more and more, and I was smoking more and more. I started buying spice at least once a week, sometimes twice depending on the day. I was blinded by the high and money to the point where I didn’t even realize I was officially addicted to spice. I didn’t even realize it until my supplier at a smoke shop was off for maternity reasons and her other workers didn’t know me enough to trust selling me it, and then thats when I got my first taste of the withdrawals. I felt woozy, disorientated, couldn’t sleep, but I just chalked it up to being tired, because there was no way I was going through withdrawals. Then I started smoking spice again as soon as she got back, falling into my old habits. Smoking every day after work for about another 2 and half months, but then I started noticing something about myself, the skin under my eyes started to darken, I was losing track of the days of the week, I didn’t want to do anything but just wake up, work, and smoke spice. I started rationalizing buying bigger bags or containers for myself, I remember having a conversation with myself where I was like “Well its cheap, and it makes the day easier, why would I not do it.” . When I realized what was happening to me, I looked up this site and realized I had an addiction, so I immediately went cold turkey and that first night was…. well lets just say I’ve never hated myself more than that night. So I looked up the symptoms of withdrawals which once again brought me here and reading your guys’ posts helped through that first night. I noticed I was experiences every symptom that was listed besides psychosis and suicidal thoughts, and that was enough for me to swear it off ‘for good’.

      Luckily all your posts helped me out that first night so much. You have no idea. I will always be gratefull to all you strangers for that first night. Fast Forward 9 days and I was still clean, but then I slipped, because my brain told me (well it was only 9 days, thats not so bad right?) Big mistake. after that bag I felt bad about myself and immediately swore it off again, which was actually working for another 4 days, and I was doing good, until I got laid off (unfairly at that) and I was so angry that I almost slipped, but I was able to hold myself together because your guys’ posts. Then after two weeks of job hunting and realized the job market was just as fucked up as it was 6 months ago and I was literally back in the same spot I was before, and for some reason that just broke me. So I slipped again, telling myself only this time, but then I kept doing it, and doing it and doing it, and the next thing I knew it was 4 months and had been smoking spice every day all day. I had officially become a drug addict. Luckily, my smoke shop lost their business so I could no longer fall to my addiction so once again I had to go cold turky. This was by far the worse first night of my life. I felt like I would kill someone just for one hit. It was so bad, I didn’t even sleep that night. The idea of drinking or eating made me sick to my stomach. I couldn’t stay still for more than a couple of minutes. I even looked myself in the mirror had a psychotic episode of telling myself of how worthless and ashamed people would be of me if they knew. I couldn’t even enjoy a party we had at my house because the idea of drinking alcohol made me sick. I had to literally force myself to eat, which was weird considering im fat as fuck lol. When I shitted it was always liquidy and not solid. I was coughing non stop, and sometimes I would puke out just spit or the food I had forced myself to eat. But yet again these posts helped me. More than any of you know.

      Now its Day 4, I can sleep easily, as long as I stay up until 1 or 2. The idea of drinking or eating doesnt make me sick, but I still have no real appetite. Some of my energy is returning but not all of it, I find myself tired as hell after a little bit of work. But not all is perfect, I would still kill for a hit right now, even as I type this Im imagining smoking again, wishing I had some spice. My mood swings are just wack as hell. I’m finding myself getting pissed at little such as spilling a drink. I punched my wall yesterday and knocked off some picture frames just because a job application wouldn’t show up on my computer after the first try. I flipped out at my folks the other day for almost no reason except that they were annoying me. But I have high hopes that I’ll be okay because of you guys. Knowing there are people out there experiencing this just like me makes me feel good. Thanks for letting me share guys. And thanks for all your help even if you didn’t know you were 🙂 And to all the people who are also going through this, just no there is hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Right now youre probably not happy, but if you haven’t slipped yet congratulations you’re strong, keeping fighting, show the drug its not more powerful than you. And to all the people who haven’t tried it or are thinking about trying. DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thank you again everyone,
      Big Jake

    125. RickHarrison says:

      Hey guys I read a few comments below talking about negative side effects to spice use? My friends and I have used spice on and off for 4 years. One of my friends manufactured it for quite some time so for over 2 years it was daily use, we smoked as much as we possibly could.

      None of us, nor anyone we know (except one guy with a pre-existing condition) has seen any negative side effects at all, and as for withdrawal symptoms we would occasionally get hunger binges where we wouldnt want to eat for a while and get really hungry.

      Just wanted to let anyone who is thinking about using spice that most of the negative comments posted below are propaganda from many governments around the world trying to ban spice because it is too hard to tax.

          • Zach says:

            ya im not gonna lie i sold the sh*t for like a year an used it worsed mistake of my life the symptoms arent lies they have to be dealers im 5 days clean an feeling like sh*t still but im determened to stay clean

      • b says:

        Rick then you are not smoking the same stuff. I have watched my bf do the stuff for years . And some of his friends. These ppl are not government tryin to ban it. You are very ignorant to say that. These negative effects are real. The withdrawals are horrible to go through making it harder for people to quit. Maybe its you and your friend trying to keep it from getting it banned so you can keep making money. I hope it gets banned completely.

      • Tom says:

        Sorry, but I am sure the affects are different for everyone. Praise God himself, you didn’t have any side effects. Go ahead and justify your usage all you want. I know first hand how horrible this drug can be. You or anyone else will never be able to convince me otherwise. Everyone always believes they are different or “special” or something and it will never happen to them. My experience is total destruction!!! My advice to anyone who reads this, is RUN, run away as fast as you can. Get help before it is too late.

      • tired of stupid people says:

        @rick harrison or you are another idiot just trying to keep this crap on the shelves. all the dead bodies and sick people arent proof enough?

      • DANIEL says:


        • ronn says:

          The guy around here that was making the craps name was rick??? I think rick and his whole damn family should smoke it up ! all day everyday!

      • DANIEL says:

        u are either a dealer, or u smoking some bullsh*t. manufactured?? or made??? u and ur friend are probably dealing it to little kids too. u f**king punk bitch. vcome to houston tx, i will beat your ass right now for lying like that.

      • RONN says:

        @ Rick . So your buddy was making spice and probably selling it also…big money…Sounds like your the one spreading lies about this crap. I know for a fact your dead wrong. The spice store opens at 9am. by 830 the parking lot is full of people waiting for them to open. They will BE CHOMPING AT THE BIT AND E SWEATING BULLETS. If your not tryng to cause people more misery on purpose keep your comments to your self! They ought to burn down these headshops and put the owners in prison because they know what this crap is doing. And believe me they wouldnt sale it to theire kids! But they let all the others get it! IM SAYING A PRAYER FOR YOU THOUGH R H!

    126. Irsis says:

      I disagree with you Rick Harrison, I have been smoking for years now, and my girlfriend asked me to give it up. I did, I am at day to, and can’t even keep water down. I use to think this was a great alternative to mjay, but it definitely is not. Depending on certain kinds of spec you get, I’ve also researched that some of have been laced with heroine. So I’m 2 days sober, I’ve lost 10lbs, and getting ready to head to the er for sever dehydration because I can’t keep anything down . My suggestion is if your on it, get off it as soon as possible

    127. polo says:

      sorry rickharrison but ur full of s**t dont say there isnt a problem just because you havent experienced. I wouldnt wish it upon you even after ur naive comments

    128. polo says:

      Im curious if anyone has experienced a MAJOR SYMPTOM that i have but is not listed. Its VERY and i mean VERY red/bad not necceserily bloodshot but achy eyes like youve just woke up after a long (uninteruptted) sleep but it dosent fade. It feels like im constantly straining to see or a constant feeling of having just woke up. Any feedback appreciated PS ive been on this crap for 4 years plus now and this symptom is in addition to 90% of the others listed. thanks

      • Patti says:

        I have never personally even tried it, but as an intern at a community organization, I see people who smoke it on a daily basis. It breaks my heart to see how this drug is slowly killing people. I’ve seen people have hallucinations, seizures, wet on themselves due to loss of control…it’s just awful. Please seek medical attention for your addiction before it’s too late 🙁

    129. JennD says:

      Can anybody offer any words of encouragement or some type of support for my husband? He quit smoking “DIABLO” 7 days ago and he is going through pure hell right now. He just needs to see the other side that it will get better.

      • Ms. Jones says:

        YES!!!! Way to go Jenn and your hubby!!! My husband is trying to quit and announced his intentions two days ago. He takes loads of baths to calm himself and deal with the sweat. My daughter and I are praying for him like crazy, please say a prayer for us too, ok? His name is Amen. Lord, please bind in heaven and on earth all the evil spirits affecting Jenn’s husband, the evil spirits of addiction that don’t want him to be sober minded long enough to resist the devil’s constant attacks. Please bind all lying spirits of fear and doubt that he can do it- because with God anything is possible!!! Please loose in heaven and on earth comfort for his withdrawal pains and loads of love to make everything easier (based on Matthew 16:19) Please strengthen him (he can do anything through Christ who strengthens him), please take his heavy burden and let this battle be won by the Lord. Please let him be saved forever In Jesus’ name (most important!!!) and Lord honor Your covenant to protect and defend and save us when we need You! We need You now and ask for help In Jesus’ name- believing that what two or more ask in Your name WILL BE DONE!!! Amen! (as promised in the King James Bible by Jesus)- Also Jenn, my husband has tried beer to lessen dependence on spice (not so good!) and seems to want more candy as he lessens use. We started E Cigarettes almost two months ago and I believe those help give him something to suck on with the aroma/flavor replacement for spice + he regards E Cigarettes as an accomplishment over regular cigarettes (which he picked up on using again – to a much lesser extent – when he finally said no to spice) and is feeling some sense of success with them. I have offered him to replace his cell phone with mine- to avoid the hordes of druggie “friends” who call him 24/7 looking to use him to get high with. I am advocating lots of filtered water, a good multi-vitamin, supplements, better foods to support his body at war with these poisons. Pray like crazy, ask others to do the same for you- email churches and submit prayer requests. Read the Bible- Psalm 91 (page 655 in my bible) is a tower of power from God!!! Show him the testimonials of horrible experiences and lingering physical and mental consequences to scare him straight. My daughter and I are praying for you, please keep my husband Amen in your prayers as well. God bless Jenn and remember that God loves your husband as much as anyone else on earth and wants to heal him with all of his heart- Jesus died on the cross so that “by his stripes we are healed” from sin and all manners of illness. We have seen such healings and miracles in ourselves and others, just keep praying and remembering that God is with us 24/7 and Satan’s bag of drugs and tricks are crushed under our feet if we pray in Jesus name.

        • Marnie Culotta says:

          You do know don’t you that not everyone is Christian. Not everyone prays to Jesus or believes in Satan. I am glad that all works for you, really I am but we are here for some real medically based help that can help EVERYONE, not just those who believe like you.

    130. IssiahR says:

      Can anyone help me? I have been smoking spice heavily for about 9 months now, and i feel like its killing my body. I know that sounds weird but i used to be all into sports football mostly but then i started to realize my motivating for things stopped. All i wanted to do was chill at home and smoke spice. I always said i wasnt the one to get addicted to drugs but ever since my tolerence for spice went up i feel like i got more and more addictied to it. Recently i noticed i been smoking a lot more then i used too, when i first started smoking it about 2 years ago i would smoke about mabe .5-1.5 grams but now i end up smoking 4-5 grams. There was this one time last month where i bought me a 10 gram pack and i end up smoking the whole thing within 2 hours. yes i know thats not healthy for you. If anyone could give some advice on whats the proper way to quit smoking spice, sshould i just reduce the ammount i smoke so it slowly goes away or should i just quit cold turkey. I read online some withdrawl side efftects and i’ve already notice that i have a mayjor loss of my appetite, would come to a point that if i havent smoked spice i wouldnt be able to eat cause i just wasnt hungry. Please Any Advice Would Be Helpful Im Not The Person To Ask For Help But I Have A Feeling If I Dont Do Something About It Now I Could End Up In Real Poor Health Or Even End Up Dead

      • kALEB says:

        I feel u bro Im going through the same shit the only difference is I smoke DANK but Im noticing all the same withdrawal symptoms

        • IssiahR says:

          Yeah before i got put on probabtion thats all i would smoke is marijuana wouldnt even touch this spice bull shit because weed doesnt give you all those nasty side effects and i know marijuana is 100% healthy for you unlike spice. I honestly wished i never even tried this shit it ruined my life made me a person who i never thought i would be i ended up stealing from friends even my own family, it even came to the point where i ended up selling almost all of my shit game systems, cell phones, even my laptop. Im glad i realized the monster it was turning me into i could just imagine if i still was smoking it now the things i would be doing. But im offically on day 6 been having urges like cazy but im thankful for my family still being here for me helping me though this hard time.

      I need to get off spice. Just found out I am pregnant been smoking for two years. What are home remedies I can do to safely get through the with drawls with out harming baby because of the stress. Fish oils? Pepto bismol? Over the counter meds? Sleep meds? I need help!!!

        green herbal pills.,, alot of water…. vitamins…ibuprophen… just be a health nut now.. thats the way to fix your inside body symptoms.

    132. mblanchard says:

      Before I got with my boyfriend 4 Years ago I had only smoked weed a handful of times and didn’t drink I was 19 at the time so I was definitely doing better than my peers ..y boyfriend started smoking about a year into our relationship and I resisted for a while because I really was not interested .. I run halfarathons work out 5+ days a week .. Well not anymore .. All I want to do all day is get high .. It makes me sick sometimes puking and cold sweats .. I have nearly fainted sitting on my kitchen floor thinking I need to get up and drink something and really just couldn’t move .. I have quit for a few days at a time but he refuses .. He thinks I have problem but he does not .. He smokes in the house and even wakes up in the middle of the night to smoke .. So the temptation is never gone I cannot get away from it and I am being woken up 3+, times a night by him packing a bowl so I smoke to go back to sleep too .. I hide this from my family because it would never be expected of me and I am very disappointed in my lack of restraint to sometjing I know is hurting me .. Reading all the stories of people with similar stories help me not feel so weak .. I hope everyone can find the courage to quit. I am not going to say it ruined my life I am young and can make a change I just need to find a way to avoid the temptations that are always around. Amd I do not work for the govt!! You sound paranoid maybe you should quit too.

      • heks says:

        You just need to let go of that so called by of yours.. and get your life straight while you can.. spice is the devil…. I was on it for 2 yes and I almost lost my wife to.

        • I quit. tried 4 times. says:

          I was addicted along with my wife for 2 years. We had all the symptoms here. Havent smoked now in about 1 year. Its crazy to think about how we spent about 10,000 on bongs, spice, papers and all the bowls amd ancillary items..the withdrawl for us lasted about 72 hours for her and 2 weeks for me…the key for her was she drank 8 oumces of water every hour….spice chemicals are water soluble not fat like thc so if you hydrate well enough u can remove the spice chems from ur system in 2-3 days. Youll brain will still want it but the appetite and peripheral effects like nornal bowels and slightly better sleep will return quickly if you hydrate well enough…as far as urges to smoke again id say moderate urges but the urge to take a nap or say..masturbate lol or eat sweets is stronger than spice urges…1 year ago the urge for spice was overwhelming that a previous 3 or 4 times attempts to quit failed..sometimes after a 3 or 4 mile run ill still cough up spotted flecks in my phlegm but when i was addicted i would hock up tan phlegm with black flecks whwn NOT running. So alot of improvement there as well…yall can do it..i did. And i did it without rehab or anything. Its not xanax or opiates. Quitting should be easier than cigarettes. Its the appetite and euphoria and sleep that gets you but like i said u can get over the appetite and sleep issues if u hydrate for long anough…as dar as the euphoria…well i dont get high anymore but i work out…spice made me a phsycho that believed in illuminati and dumb shit i even called my mother satan…i attacked my wife. I played russian roulette thinking that god would save me if he wanted too and i even threw my wife out of the house and then we both cheated…spice is horrible. The actual addiction is weak. Its the phsychological addiction and peripheral effects that are very hard to let go of…..good luck. And dont believe the dumb crazy shit spice makes you believe cuz once ur sober itll embarass you.

    133. Danielle De Velasco says:

      I feel for you guys. I truly do. I was addicted to it for a long time too and the withdrawal was awful. I did horrible things to obtain it, like beg borrow and steal. Its so crazy. I am not that kind of person! But I quit by a combination of detox tea, water, sleep, aspirin, and I also told my doctor about it and he gave me something for the symptoms to help me get through it. I walked every day to sweat those chemicals out. I also found spirituality through meditation, yoga, and Buddhist principles. Not that you have to do that, but some kind of spiritual connection does help. I feel for you so intensely that I will say feel free to contact me at my gmail account, and I will do my best to offer support. Feel better, good luck, and Namaste.

    134. heks says:

      I was addicted to spice for 2 years straight. I got to the point i would smoke all day everyday during work.. working in the oil fields all high.i finally told my parents i had a drug problem that i couldn’t stop smoking spice. I told them to lock me inside there house and to take away my keys, money. And to let me smoke a a little marijuana here n there because the stomach pains were intense and natural herbs really helped. . I’ve been off spice for 2 month already and i feel great. .. i feel back to life…. quit while it’s still early

      hi my name is eric, I quit spice on December 10 2013 I went to rehab on the 26 of December , I experienced everything you wrote about “fuck incense” It does get better I promise I had a 60,000 dollar 3 year addiction to it It almost coast me everything my family my life my child you name it . I can tell you this it does get better and easy in about 4-6 weeks you will get a lot of these symptoms for about a week its called post acute withdrawals after that you will never want to go near it I promise you . it caused me to have insomnia, heart palpitations , quit bmx, I had no drive for anything but all I can say is it gets better anyone with any questions or needs support email me [email protected] I will help you talk to you what ever you will be ok I promise btw I revoverd from all of my issues still am worried about a few years from now stay strong you will beat this

    137. Josh says:

      This is my 2nd day off the shit in a span of about 3-4 weeks of smoking the crap. I’m noticing my head start to level out(good feeling). But the sweating has intensified into nastiness. I mean I’m constantly drenching in the shit. So my advice, just don’t do it. I’ve been doing it on and off for 3 years and It’s very ironic that I fall victim to it, when there are better remedies FOR SURE out there that will help you through the days. You don’t need this shit trust me, and I know the easy access to the drug but natural is the way to go. Anything chemically engineered is something you definitely don’t want to fuck with. You may not notice the symptoms early on, but with time it starts to eat you up.

    138. Hulk Hogan's Camera Man says:

      no withdrawal symptoms ever here. most of this sounds like made up government BS. I know it can be a problem but lets not exaggerate the withdrawal symptoms. Using it is bad but only because it’s full blown antagonist of your CB receptors instead of a partial one like weed so you can blackouts and do dangerous things. stop now while you can but don’t let these BS stories about bad symptoms scare you to do so

      • Ryan says:

        shut up you clown, clearly your one of those “educated experts” who can read a million articles a day and know more than the dude smoking multiple bags a day. i can tell you for a fact that those symptoms are not “made up government bs” because i experienced the sweating and vomiting and shits while attempting to quit last night. so before you go round posting about stuff you have clearly had no personal experience in and only have information you’ve copied and pasted from some other sites go and experience it then come back with your genius theory that it’s only bad because it’s full blown antagonists of your cb receptor. because tbh my cb receptor is the least of my worries when addicts out there are going crazy turning to crime or whatever else to get high or when children aren’t eating because there parents are buying bags, i don’t think the cb receptor is the problem here buddy.

      • Hulk Hogan's Camera Man says:

        to ryan I smoked quite a bit of it sometimes daily or binging on it. I quit when I was ready to and not because of propaganda made up by the government. regardless, without the ingredients being made public and the process in which it is made being public I will not smoke it ever again. and those people do those things because of the way the drug works. weed is much safer because it’s only a partial antagonist unlike spice which is a full one which makes it so addictive and so dangerous. no need for the hostility. take care

        • Molly Y says:

          If all this is propaganda, why are you here? You obviously need some help or you wouldn’t be on a site like this. They are trying to help people who are addicted to synthetic marijuana and you are trying to discredit how bad it is. I don’t understand why when they have like 100 stories of people dealing with the addiction here: Submitted Synthetic Marijuana Stories

          I see you were posting here 2 months ago. What was the reason you sought help? It’s ok, we have all been in the denial this drug has on you. Read some of those stories and you will see yourself in them.

          Good luck to you @hulkhoganscameraman:disqus

          • Hulk Hogan's Camera Man says:

            Not trying to discredit it at all. Some people simply couldn’t handle it physically. Doesn’t mean that government agents don’t go on websites and post hyperbole. They did it with marijuana and they do it with spice. They are stupid for doing it as spice is bad enough on it’s own just by the very nature of how it affects your brain as opposed to what it is supposed to mimic. I was psychologically addicted and it sucked to quit as I used to fill my boring days. No need for it anymore. I got back into writing and my career in political communication.

        my brother is currently in the hospital due to withdrawals .. he had 3 seizures yesterday.. we read so many blogs about spice and did everything to warn him but he took it so lightly … and now its too late..so please dont take this lightly… i cant tell you how horrible it is to see a loved one going thorugh this… if your on spice stop!! its not worth it!

      • poos says:

        Oh buddy its not fake symptoms. some are just more susceptible than others. But I tell u bro im in pure hell. Smoked spice for a year, a year ago… went thru major withdraws and a life change because of it… well recently I made a pathetic choice and in the spur.of the moment, a “buddy” was slingin a bag okf k2 in my face and in a thoughtless second, I agreed. Took that hit and it was all over. Hooked for another month. Spent 30$ every 2 days n would smoke a gram or so a day… gave it up for good 3 days ago…. my symptoms that are very real include: sweating all over non stop, vomiting stomach acid over and over, worst part is this surreal feeling. I will be laying down, because th ats all I can physically do, and when I stand up everything gets “weird” only way I can describe it is scary as a mother f**ker. Worst feeling in the world and I cannot exactly describe it. Its like the world around ypu becomes weird, just weird. Sometimes I get vertigo. Sometimes I have out of body experiences where im in my room up in the corner looking down on myself like a survalience camera. Looking forward to this stopping. my biggest tip for someone withdrawing from k2, get ur ass in the hospital. They will make sure ur hydrated with an iv and give u nausea medicine such as zofran. My biggest help thru this besides my parents, the local hospital. Dont be afraid to tell them.the truth cuz they will not.judge you and they just want u to be genuinely safe and healthy. Well good luck everyone. My withdrawal days are coming to an end I believe. Stick to that gatoraid and smoke some reefer and that will speed up the process ten fold.

      Let me say to all you nay sayers.. my son is currently going they withdraw from smoking spice. It is horrible. All the symptoms listed are very real. So if you smoke this crap everyday for an extended period of time and stop you are going to be in a world of hurt. Those of you who think you know it all and rally to support the use of this drug are in serious denial.. I challenge you all to stop poisoning your brains on this crap and stick to the natural stuff like cannabis.. When you do quit and begin to experience withdraw remember how ignorant your decision was to smoke that junk, and pray you have a good support group to help you through. If you have the strength to push through and get it out of your system and you don’t pussy out..don’t go back… If you do go back, go take a long look at yourself in the mirror so you recognize what an ignorant, weak, self loathing, out of control, follower looks like.

      • dee0318 says:

        its really not ur place to down someone that would quit so ez, if that’s ur respond to ur son if he go back to smoking it ( hopefully he wont) then u really need to re think ur words. No im not a addict but I know someone who is and I give him positive advice, never put someone down.

      • William Walker says:

        Sorry miss, but have to disagree. Started smoking the crap in the little packages just like everyone else. Quickly found it to be a waste of money and quite weak. Yes I said weak. Started buying and using pure research chemicals. Yes the very chemicals used to make this spice crap. Used and abused super heavy, countless different chemicals for four years. Stopped on a stupid whim a year ago and have not had the slightest desire to use it again. I experienced a very slight shaking of the hands and some hot flashes on and off for about 48 hours. After that it was all good.
        I guess some people are just weak.

        • concerned mother says:

          Asshole I had a heart attack from it and didn’t even know it until a year later cuz like u I was like never me. and my body is just messed up from it and always will be until the day I die. And for u to actually call someone weak dude go get on heroine and say that. Been in rehab where the heroine addicts can’t be told from the spice addicts so u really need to shut up

          • William Walker says:

            Since I’m such an asshole, guess I will continue to be. As for other drugs including heroine and pretty much everything else on the face of the planet, been there, used and abused everything. Never had a problem letting ANY of it go with no ill effects. Wake up moron it’s not the drug…it’s YOU that is the problem. You obviously have no concept of your own limitations and if I were a betting man I would have to say you were not in pristine condition when you were abusing. That coupled with the fact that you obviously have not taken the time to collect and assimilate the scientific data available BEFORE becoming a user and abuser tells everyone what a fool you are. If you had a heart attack using this stuff the only one to blame is yourself. Yes you are weak and yes I’m perfectly happy being the asshole that tells it to you straight. Good luck to you and I hope you learn to use a little common sense in the future. Good day to you

      • cody says:

        you really need to learn how to speak to other people. because if you think about it your son is ignorant,weak,self loathing, out of control follower. and guess what you probably give him the money to go buy it. so you are the one doing the most harm to your son

      • Marnie Culotta says:

        What the hell is your problem? People are on here for help advice and support not insults or to be judged. Did you call your son all these names when he was using? If so then you have no business being a parent. You definitely have no business being on this site with your nastiness and hatefulness toward those who are here seeking HELP!

        ” If you do go back, go take a long look at yourself in the mirror so you recognize what an ignorant, weak, self loathing, out of control, follower looks like.”

        So….how’s your son doing? lol….Didja tell him that if/once he relapsed? If so I bet if you take a long look in the mirror and think about your own attitude, you might be able to find one of the reasons for his drug addiction in the first place staring right back at you. 😉

    140. Your true friend says:

      I went to jail for the weekend they had a warrant round up. And in the holding tank there were people looking all sick on the floor laying down. And I asked a few of them what was wrong with them N they would all say they were hooked on spice .. they looked worse than heroine attic.

    146. Ryan says:

      Hi, I live in Perryville, Missouri and its horrible here.. People give up regular weed to smoke this stuff. i quit smoking weed because it wasnt getting me real high anymore and started smoking this stupid stuff, I would have my girlfriend drive me a hour and a half away every day or other day to st louis or to arnold to buy this stuff named ” buddha” and “twilite” at the little store in fenton MO. What i did to get away from it was look on websites like these and read these comments, it started scaring me and i decided to quit. It was the worst thing i have ever done in my life, quitting it was so hard. i non stop paced all the time in my room and living room, staying up pretty much all night sweating my balls off because im withdrawling off this stuff, 6 hours after i quit i started puking and it was just bad.. I still think about it frequently, every few days and ill start researching .. it gave me somewhat of a permanent anxiety i think, and i am worried about my health, If you smoke this stuff, PLEASE, STOP!!! You may think its not gonna hurt you in the future but it will hurt us all! trust me.! By the way im only 16. i think it ruined my life.

      Withdrawls include; Irritability, sweating ( nonstop) in the hands, armpits and feet. No appetite whatsoever, aggitation and pure evil. I quit successfully in Janyuary and that was 6 months ago, I only smoke weed now but i have like permanent anxiety from it, fear death alot and i feel like my lungs are just caked with spice resin still traveling through my body. The stuff i was smoking was called “mad hatter” , ” Caution” , “Buddha” and “Bizarro”( I loved apple and strawberry) and “Twilite” was the last one before we quit. the twilite one really gave us bad withdrawls, and the buddha too.. i think it is similar to coke because when you dont smoke it for a bit then take a hit you start like speeding/ having a panic attack, its like a upper/downer , DO NOT TRY IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE ANXIETY FOREVER!

    147. Jamaicob says:

      I smoked synthetic for four years straight. Out of those four years, there were only about two to three weeks (in days added up) that I didn’t smoke. The times I didn’t have it, I had insane withdrawals. Hot/Cold flashes, shaking, major anxiety attacks, and the worst part was constant diarrhea from lack of food in me. I ended up hospitalized because of chronic dehydration and malnutrition from it. I ended up completely quitting in April, after I had a dream that woke me up. Haven’t touched the stuff since I’ve had the dream and I never will again. It is the work of pure evil.

      To all those that think, “You’re just a lightweight, I’ve never had anything bad happen.. blah blah”, yeah, I was saying the same thing. I was smoking 10-20 grams a day of this stuff and it put me through major depersonalization, to the point I questioned my own existence. If you want a life of insanity, feel free to do this sh*t, otherwise, I’d advise against it. It nearly destroyed my mind.

    148. trey says:

      I smoked some stuff call joker today and everybody is high as fuck and im like how are yall this high and I took a hit of it again.
      Right after that my head started spinning and I couldnt move or breath.
      All I could think of was praying.. I prayed tho like 2 mins later I swear it went away. Then I told everone there this sh*t is bad and I quite so should yall

    149. The Don Dadda says:

      Last time I smoke synthetic weed was about two years ago. Within that two year calendar, I had two horrible, I MEAN HORRIBLE EXPERIENCES! I’m a regular weed toker but due to high spending, I made the decision to opt out of smoking it. Not the first nor the last time I stopped smoking herb, but by buying this fake weed labeled “Mind Tricks” I’m able to be a lot more frugal. So back to the symptoms I experienced when smoking fake weed. My first episode included sweaty palms as well as my feet. The floor looked wavy like ocean waters, blurry per-say. The scariest symptom I experienced was my accelerated heart beat. Felt like it was beating out of my chest that almost resulted in me dialing 911! I will be a fraud if I sat here and said i wasn’t addicted to weed smoke. I love smoking fat blunts full of exotics but due to circumstance and priorities, I feel the need to buy fake weed for the simple reason that a half smoked blunt is all I need as opposed to smoking two fat blunts full of exotic real weed. From past experiences with fake weed, I only barely put any in the blunt cuz the minute you smoke that sh*t like its real weed, consider yourself DONE!

    150. 51yr old says:

      so the after effects last 6 or 7 days? it’s been 5 days i still have episodes..but am trying to make it i already went to ER they were useless told me it was my fault..this is a night mare..i only smoked a tiny pinch what can i do to make it pass faster i have been drinking lots of water please help thanks

      • Penny says:

        Pray and ask God to help you. He will. Ask for help in the name of Jesus. The demons have to obey. Read Psalms out loud and listen to gospel music. Demons hate it. A relationship with God IS THE ANSWER. Trust Him, He loves you and wants what is best for you. He is all that is good! Have other believers pray for you too. Stay away from anyone who would want you to do this.

      • blu says:

        Ive gone threw spice withdrawal two times before, and I can say that there really isn’t a number of days. It is a battle and everyday you have to just try your hardest to find yourself in the ”crazy” cycle it can become. Ive overdosed and tripped in ways that made me feel like I wouldn’t live to the next day. So good luck and take care. 🙂

      • Pam McCray McDonough says:

        Try activated charcoal…you should be able to get the capsules at your local pharmacy. Benedryl works great for the anxiety, calms you down a bit (but only take as prescribed on the box). Sip on Gatorade continuously.

    151. Weed 4 Lyfe says:

      will exercising such as skateboarding, going for a walk, swimming pose any threat during spice withdrawal symptoms, will they help

    152. Under the influence says:

      I don’t want to scare anyone, but surely others have considered this. At the risk of sounding crazy I want to first point out that humans only see in this visible light spectrum. There are things happening outside this spectrum we can’t see, but it doesn’t make them any less real. Agreed? After smoking for the better part of four years, I have come to understand that there are entities attached to the product. I think it opens one up to possession/influence. The anxiety is the entity vibrating the lower two chakras (stomach and crotch area, mostly the stomach), by which it attaches itself to one’s “energy body.” The first time I smoked I felt the energy stream of a separate being coming into my space, think/speaking in its own language that I understood as “downloading.” I felt it settle in. It was terrifying and in retrospect, absolutely real. After almost four years of living hell, I’m convinced this drive I have to smoke all day and night is not my own, especially at night. I think the withdrawals are a physical manifestation of a very real spiritual/energy battle. The departure is violent and not permanent. These things experience this reality through us, through the high. You can see how they would be driven. The chemicals in the product change our vibrational frequency to resonate to the low-vibrational energy of these beings, so they can attach. They then feed off the low-vibrational energy created by compulsion, fear, anger and everything negative associated with using. This is not that far-fetched, folks. Quantum mechanics can explain much of it. I believe the solution is awareness, forgiveness and prayer. Realistically, these things cannot withstand the energy of our beings, once aware and resolved to rid ourselves of them. We do the hard part by going through withdrawals, the rest of the battle belongs to God. Those still suffering from anxiety and fear are still being manipulated. These things hang around even after detox, trying to get the user to use. It is still resonating to the personal, identifying, individual vibrational frequency of the host’s energy body – it cannot stay attached otherwise – so, if a person were to raise his or her own vibrational frequency (prayer, love, laughter, forgiveness) the entity must detach since it will then no longer resonate to that same frequency. And plus, God can command it to leave. Very simple … and yes, insane. But this is not a sane situation we find ourselves in. We need to know what we’re dealing with here if we want to be free of this bondage/slavery. This is scary stuff and most people don’t want to look beyond what they can see. But in order to understand this enemy we’re going to have to get all the way out of that comfort zone. Please post. Someone needs to hear it.

      • RCT says:

        I was speechless, after reading your post. To someone never using this product you would sound crazy, but I truly understand your words. Thank you.

      • kierenC says:

        I don’t necessarily agree with the chakra thing, but i do agree with the demonic possession. I always suspected it was more than just a coincidence that the particular brands i was addicted to were called “diablo” and the “aroma” brands all referring to egypt, i.e. ramses, isis, ra. If you are familiar with scripture, The Lord liberated the jews from their bondage in egypt. And though i knew He was trying to convey that to me and i was very obviously in bondage, i could not and did not want to stop. I smoked for 3 years and once i actually managed to stop for a good 6 months and my life was so much better, but one day, i convinced myself that if i bought a sachet and just rolled one joint and threw the rest away it would be fine. I actually did throw the package away, but i got hooked again. It’s been about three weeks since i quit now and the withdrawal was very violent this time. Especially the first week, i could not sleep properly, the sweating was profuse, my appetite was non-existent, i was vomiting, i became extremely depressed with suicidal ideation, i wanted to hurt others. This thing did not want to let me go. I still loathe people and i mostly look through everyone when I’m out in public and i don’t talk to anyone i don’t know or wish to interact with. It may or may not be this thing still lurking, as people are pretty despicable anyway, but i know we are commanded to love others and pray for our enemies. I almost renounced my faith that first week. Thank the Lord Yeshua, He’s still with me, but my heart will take longer to repair as I don’t feel the love for Him like when I first believed. Pray for me brothers and sisters because when you love The Lord with all your heart, you’ll love others as well, and right now I do not. But if this is not something you can understand, understand this: This garbage of a drug causes damage to your body. The reason o was scared into stopping was because my liver was damaged by this crap. My friends mom noticed the coloration of my skin was greenish/yellow on a particulary heavy binge of mine and that was enough for me to become frightened of dieing. There are things I’ve yet to do here and i was hastening my departure.

        I’m sorry Lord for the thing I’ve made it. When it’s all about you. Please forgive me. I do not want to go yet. If this thing is still holding on I implore you to rebuke it. Help me forgive those that have caused me great pain and suffering. I no longer want to hold on to this.

        • LS says:

          I am praying for you. My husband, the love of my life went through this and I’ve never seen anything like it. It was horrible and I was so afraid that he would go into seizure and never come out of it. I’ve never seen anything like it. It almost destroyed our marriage of 10 years, but more than that, I watched him almost lose himself. The restlessness, weight loss and mania were the worst of it. We did a lot of quiet things together. We walked at night and spent many nights fishing or just staying busy any way we could until the symptoms gradually faded away. I understand the spiritual side of what you’re saying, as at times he reminded me of someone who was haunted. The truth is though, (that was back in 2011, before there was all of this support and information on the net….I felt like a scared little girl at 28, BELIVE that) it got BETTER AND BETTER until one day he was whole again. He is perfectly fine now and has helped many friends/co-workers through the same thing. Everybody falls angel…. you are human and born to make mistakes. God or whatever name you wish to call him, STILL loves you and I’m sending a special prayer out tonight that you find the strength to defeat your personal demons and learn to love yourself again. Addiction is a powerful persuasive monster, but you can beat it. You’ll come out stronger than before and probably learn some interesting things about yourself. Best wishes and GOD BLESS ♡

          • sassy says:

            Oh man this is crazy….well she’s right. I have been smoking spice (CB1), on and off since April, then I picked it back up and smoked for a month, but last week in my bathroom was horrifying!! I was sitting on the toilet seat and only smoke 2 one hitters, then I just sat there closing my eyes and humming a song, then all the sudden my whole body was on fire and then I was struck twice in the back of the head. Something punched me twice in the back of my head, and when this thing punched me I can also feel the heat under my feet and these knuckles hit the back my head. I was in Hell!! When I screamed,”What the f*ck did I deserve that for!” When I said that it stopped I looked up and NO ONE WAS THERE!!!!
            Right now I’m detoxing and oh boy do I want to smoke but tooo scared of these things I’m not sure if it’s just one, but I truly believe there is a few because I live close to an Indian Reservation.
            So I’m asking them to leave and please leave me alone I didn’t do anything.
            I’m sooo scared!!

          • Ronnelle says:

            Thank you. I’m just beginning my journey to recovery, this is the most difficult thing I’ve ever experienced. Admittedly I have an addictive personality to start with and when introduced to Spice it was NO different except for the intensity of this drug. At 15 (2005) I became addicted to Meth, as was a daily user for 3 years. One day I woke up and realized I had sold all of my earthly possessions and at the time was sleeping on boards as I had sold my bed for meth. I decided then that was not me and I quit with no forethought to what withdraws I may face. I don’t think twice about it to this day. In 2008, I substituted my addiction to meth with that of Spice. It was all the rage and it was LEGAL. The fact it was legal gave me a justification to my actions. now 6 years later… I’ve pushed away loved ones, lost lifelong relationships, gone to Jail for my manic rage threatening to blow up an entire Police station, and still reaping what I sewed. Probation, House arrest, $10,000 in legal fees amongst other things. I started smoking Spice as a relief to daily stresses, and in the grander scheme of things.. it only added fuel to the fire.
            I’m fortunate enough to not have had horrible trips or sever withdraws like I’ve heard of and continue to read about.. but that’s not to minimalize the affect this has had on my life. Growing up life was not easy and I knew I was going to work hard to not have to live life that way and I did. I went to college, obtained a career, became successful, made money. And one night I lost everything because of the manic rage I flew into due to spice and alcohol. I was now considered a poor reflection of the image of the company I represented and was no longer successful, had a career, and the money was depleting.
            Everyday I’m without spice, I see and feel the old me coming back and shining through. And for the first time in years I have hope, faith, and strength I’d thought I’d never have again.
            People don’t realize what Spice does to the brain. You are desensitized to feeling, and emotion. You are selfish and uncaring. all characteristics that I don’t hold highly.
            Honestly, it hasn’t been that long since I’ve stopped.
            But everyday I’m happier, I’m rebuilding relationships, I See in me things I value and am proud of.
            Your journey cant truly start until you WANT it to.
            Spice only makes you want more spice.
            It’s hard, harder for me than it was to quit Meth, the urges are so much greater and the fight is so much harder.
            It’s worth it though…
            Build a support system, don’t bullsh*t those who love you and are willing to help you. Consider what people say even if the truth hurts.

      • thor says:

        dude you are 100% right that sh*t is no good but man you really need some psychological help. if everything you say is true it still boils down to you need to quit and get right

    153. kaykay says:

      I’m having problems trying to quit. I get withdrawals but they’re physical as well as me wanting to smoke. I can’t sleep peacefully and if I do, I wake covered in sweat. And after about 8 or so hours it starts to make me throw up. The vomiting doesn’t stop until I smoke. How long will it last if I don’t give in to stop throwing up?

    154. Taylor says:

      About 2 weeks ago, I was at my boyfriends apartment hanging out with him and his brother. His brother, Brian, insisted that we go and get some spice from the gas station and try it out. My boyfriend and I were hesitant but eventually we gave in. (Keep in mind, this happened 2 weeks ago). I had never tried spice before and I never really thought about it, but I gave it a shot anyway. The first time wasn’t bad but the second time I smoked it I had a terrible experience. I felt like I wasn’t in my own body, kind of like I was watching myself. I couldn’t feel myself breathe through my nose or my mouth, so I had a panic attack because I thought I wasn’t breathing. I thought I was going to die. It only lasted about 15 minutes in the real world, but in my mind it felt like an eternity. I did smoke it again after that, but I was too scared to smoke too much of it.

      A couple of days ago my boyfriend and I were sitting in the living room and he took a couple pretty big hits of the spice, we were just sitting there and he started freaking out. He said he could feel his heart beating really fast and it felt like it could explode. He made me shut off the TV because he said that he could hear all the sounds around him and it was way too loud. He even had me shut the AC off because it was bothering him that much.

      I haven’t smoked spice for 2 days now, and as I said I only did it my first time about 2 weeks ago and I feel like absolute shit. I’m very depressed, I’ve had thoughts about wanting to die and about how everyone would be much better off if I wasn’t here and that is NOT like me at all.
      I can’t sleep. When it gets to around 11 o’clock at night, that’s when I start to really go crazy. I lay there and close my eyes and I can’t sleep even though I’m dead tired. My stomach always hurts really bad and I’ve had bad diarrhea. I’ve read from a few different sites people also experience a lot of vomiting, thankfully I haven’t thrown up but I’ve sure felt sick to my stomach.

      My head is just really cloudy too…I can’t really think straight. I don’t feel like myself anymore. Whenever I go to the bathroom and look in the mirror, it’s like I”m looking at a totally different person. I know that this will all go away soon and I’ll eventually be back to normal, but ever since I stopped smoking that stuff I’ve been OBSESSED with researching it and seeing other people’s stories, and I decided I wanted to share mine too.

      So if you’re reading this and thinking about trying spice, DO NOT do it. It’s not worth it. Stick to the real stuff, you’re much better off. I will never smoke that fake shit EVER again.

    155. Scotland87 says:

      I started smoking it a little over a year ago brands like clockwork orange, psyclone and annihilation till that got banned. the first time me and my friend smoked annihilation we said to each other that this is far to strong and should be banned. a don’t even know why it is called synthetic weed its nothing like the high you get from weed. its not even a high i don’t know if that’s because its different brands here in Scotland than in the US maybe some do give you a high but none i have tried has ever made me feel high. I have stopped for 4 days now and i feel like sh*t some people seem to be having different withdrawal symptoms than me as i don’t seem to have lost my apatite i eat the same as i normally do but i am having the sweats really bad and also got a really bad headache that will not go away and i also feel really dizzy like i am falling down. i have never been addictated to any drug before as i used to just smoke real weed and take ectos on nights out clubbing so i really hope it gets better any advice from anyone who has went through this would be much appreciated. Just to add i get all use people coming on here saying its BS i used to be like you only ever praising synthetics saying oh this sh*t is amazing the truth of the matter it is not amazing just wait till you start getting heart palpitations feeling like your about to have a heart attack and i guarantee you wont feel the same way

    156. Alex says:

      The withdrawal symptoms are very real ive been smoking on and off for the past year. Every morning when I wake up covered in sweat and I go take a hit from my pipe jus so that I can get myself to eat sumthing without vomiting and I make my way to the store to buy me a $10 bag 2g. And I usually end up goin bak a lil before midnite and it really sucks. I was a everyday weed smoker never had anything like this before it jus pure hell when ur not high. I’m slowly tryin to stop but it real hard I jus feel out of this world and I don’t have anyone to help me out. I honestly could smoke a whole bag in a sittin and still want to smoke more. Any advice on how to get though this easier?

      • mybabiesaremyangelsfromheaven says:

        Alex- You vomiting and getting sick from going through withdrawals is way better than continuing and doing harm to your body and mind. I lost my childs father to this crap.(and I don’t mean death although it can happen). There’s help out there, search the internet. I’m sure there’s something someone in your area. You could also try churches, reach out to them. Pray

      • Jacob Duplechin says:

        Hey man, I just watched your video and I’ve been experiencing the SAME exact symptoms as you. I thought I was dying, I didn’t know what was wrong with my body. Is there any advice you can give me to help me? This is the worst feeling in the world, sometimes I feel like I’m slowly just loosing control of my body and I can’t do anything about it

      • NYG20 says:

        Hey bro. I was smoking spice for 5 months, and just quit last Friday. Today is day 7 of sobriety and just wanted to say your video helped lot. Just watchin someone go through it like myself. Today still cant eat, sleep and got numbness all over. Worst sh*t ive ever been through.just wanted to say thanks for the video man helped me a lot man

        • NYG20 says:

          Update on me for anyone.. Took 14 days for me to start eating again. 4 weeks for the numbness to go away and my physical properties of my body to comeback. Haven’t smoked Spice since. Now just an avid Marijuana smoker. Hope everyone whos going through this shit can make it out. Very tough drug and I hope everyone gets through it. During my withdrawals I made a point to write a letter to my congressman and tell him the how deadly the drug and they need to start educating people on this drug. If I would have ever known I go through withdrawals that how a heroine addict I would have never started,

      • William Walker says:

        Do your research before you experiment with anything. Sorry bro your bad not the drug. Good luck to you though

      • mommy4life says:

        i am a mother with an 18 year old son getting ready to face this. It breaks my heart, I thought I had warned him and educated him enough, but in the end it is their friends who win the battle, after all I am a “mom” what would I know. I am so proud of you for fighting, and I hope you win. all of my prayers…

      • Debbie says:

        Hi Michael… Thank you. I have a nineteen year son trying to quit. It has been one day. He is not eating or sleeping. He has already said he wants to smoke again and blames me for not giving him money. But I’m staying strong and watching your video has helped tremendously. Let’s see how tonight goes. Your videos are going world-wide. I’m in Perth Australia and again thank you for all your help. I hope you continue to do well.

    158. Domgall says:

      I stopped smoking spice awhile ago, and have been doing real herb from time to time. I was addicted pretty bad, I’d smoke either 1 hit or small bowls and I’d do this all day everyday. I’m not sure if this is because I am older now and my tolerance hasn’t lowered much, but I can’t get high like I used to back when I first started on bud. I feel it but it’s like it goes away in not even an hour now. I used to be blitz for a good hour and a half, and baked for about another 2 hours. Honestly I can live without drugs, especially this evil shit, but I love my green. Maybe I just need to give it a little more time and research alternative consumption methods.

      • stitch says:

        Other consumption methods might work better for u.if u can dabs might b a better method.But first try edibles.Vapirizers is the cleanest method.

      • Drew says:

        This is likely due to two things. First of all your recepticals are probably damaged due to the full agonist effects of whatever research chemicals you were injesting, and secondly, your definition of what “high” is has changed. Most of those chemicals are hundreds of times stronger then actual marijuana and they also trigger both recepticals whereas Cannibis typically only trigger one.. Give your brain some time to heal and you’ll react better to the real thing

    159. shaun says:

      I been withdrawing for 2 days and not gettin better is there anything i can do or take for this? (Not another hit of spice obviously)

      • Ryan says:

        Hey, it will be really bad for just under a week and then suddenly the cravings stop. There so many forums on withdrawal process from spice. It helps heaps !

        • William Walker says:

          People build it up in their minds far far worse than it actually is. No different than being hung over from a hard night of drinking. Hangover just lasts a couple days longer.

      • Mem says:

        Keep up the good work Shaun. It does get better. I have never done any serious drugs, weed smoker. But my 23 year old son has stopped for a couple of days now. He has chills sweats fever and throws up very bad. All I can do is pray for him and be there for him. I HOPE you have support at home as well

    160. stan says:

      I see a lot of comments of seeing demons and stuff I haven’t had that kind of experience since I been smoking. I have stopped for a day and I get cold sweats,loss of appetite, and can’t sleep. I did have one trip on my roof because they are fixing gas lines and I thought cops were all over and a big shoot out was taking place then I took a deep breath and said to myself your on drugs and this is a effect after that I just felt stoned. In my opinion I feel ppl have crazy trips because they smoke it like it’s bud keep this in mind everyone it’s man made so be very careful when ingesting

    161. thatguythatjustpostedthis says:

      im really hoping people read this as I really need some help here. I have been smoking spice for almost 4 years now. I used to smoke stuff called mr nice guy then I quit for 6 months and started back up a year ago and started smoking stuff called Mad hatter. I had to quit last week simply because they did a raid on the smoke shop that I bought it from. I have overdosed multiple times and I can tell you it is no fun. my question however is when I quit for that six month period I didnt really have any symptoms however this time I have the worst chest pains and headaches and so I am wondering if there is any probability of there being any long term health problems from smoking. I honestly feel like I should go see a doctor but I dont have insurance so not really an option.

      • Concerned says:

        The stuff isn’t what you were smoking in the past. It is different and most likely coming from China now. Your blood pressure is/was at a critical level due to withdrawl. I would really like to hear that you are ok now.

        • William Walker says:

          Again, 110% fact. I guess even the slightest bit on common sense escapes most people in this day and age.

      • David Reyes says:

        My friend im in the same boat ive smoked a little longer and my boy ( good friend ) owns a smoke shop. Quit immediately you have to. I wish i knew you so we could quit together. You know how it burns a lot hotter than weed. The little embers really burn. Thats what is in you. those sweats are not so cold. Huh its that crap trying to leave through your pores. I know buddy telling you to quit without help is cruel. But please stop. If you need to talk. I know its stupid of me .but i do care and if your life is at risk fuck it. You can reach me at [email protected] email me and ill give you my number. We will quit together. I have 2 weeks clean. Physical symptoms gone. Psychological symptoms still there. But i know i have to man up cause it WILL KILL ME.

    162. Jerren Harris says:

      I want to get some people that I would like to quit smoking.They’ve been doing it for three years or more.And I’m not sure what to do or how they would react to a rehab suggest… but it probably wouldn’t good.


        • William Walker says:

          I guess because a moron like you thinks it’s stupid it must be right? You must be the only one who knows anything about anything right?

            • William Walker says:

              Not a problem as long as the same curtsy is extendended to me as well, and the rules of your forum are enforced on all who post there. Otherwise do as you wish. It matters little to me.

      First This sh*t is nothing like Marijuana so don’t even think you will get anything out of this like Mary. Idiots Just cant leave sh*t alone can you? This sh*t is not good for your Brain body or life. I Know people who have been using Marijuana for 30 + years no 45 years. None exhibit any of these things and calling this synthetic Marijauna is as idiotic as using a product.

    164. mummy hater says:

      mummys breath is the worst thing i ever could have came across. im not sure what karma was trying to prove with my wife ,son and i, but it almost killed us. we had been smoking all types of spice since it was legal 3 years ago and found a store in southern tn. that sells it even after that. for the last 3 years we smoked it pretty regular and at the end were spending 40$ a day on it. we found that weed no longer worked no matter how good and were very tollerent to all the brands we found, untill mummys breath. we smoked it for three months every day, even waking up every hour or so while sleeping to hit the bowl. untill one day it wasnt available. then we started the worst three weeks of our lives. only 6 hours after not having it, upper stomach pain starts. then 2 hours after that terrible body pain starts. vomiting pure acid and hallucinations come next and did not stop night or day for three weeks!my wife and i had pillows and blankets in the shower where we stayed most of that time. we figured out how to have the hot water on just enough so that it never ran out. our son that didnt smoke kept a pitcher of water and a bucket just out the door the whole time and the only way to not puke that terrible alien acid was to slam the pitcher and puck it back up every time….hundreds of times! for weeks. we had sores frome being wet and the shower floor, and not to mention were contently startled by huge bugs and auditory hallucinations! we had quit other spice types b4 and only had cravings but mummys breath is different. finaly we had to call an ambulance for my wife. at the hospital she had a paralized stomach and 10% gal badder function, severe mal nutrition and dehydration. she never said what it was from and they wanted to do surgery. thank god she didnt because now 2 months later we are better. i didnt eat my first food untill 3 and a half weeks later. i lost 50 pounds and my wife 80! we almost died i belive!please stay away from this stuff its like nothing else out there. trust me. i cant wait till they bust that store, or some body burns it down!

      • anewlife says:

    165. Katie Farias says:

      @ Daniel who are you to talk shit about smoking? Everyone knows its not good for you. Its the smokers decision to smoke it. Smoking marijuana is an idiotic decision as well.. Any drug is dumbass.. And for jerren, you cant stop a person from smoking it. Its their decision. If you dont like it, stay away. You are no one to tell anyone what they should and shouldnt be doing. Not trying to be rude but as an ADULT we all make our own decisions. Instead of being a bitch like daniel and talking shit i will say this quitting is all in your head. I was a heavy smoker and one day just like that i stopped. After 2 years. And not once did i experience withdraws. People only tell theirself they need it. They make their own mind dependant on it.

      • William Walker says:

        Thank you Katie,
        I happen to agree with every word of your comment 110%. Too many people using the cop out excuse that they are addicted to everything these days. Most people think I’m just being a harsh asshole when I say things like “your just weak”. I myself have an entire life time of experience with just about every drug on the face of the planet and have NEVER had an issue stopping anything. These people whining and moaning simply find it much easier to blame anything and everything and everyone for their problems rather than accept that THEY themselves are their own worst enemy. At the same time their own idiotic mentality is exactly the reason why laws are passed that take away responsible peoples rights to make their own educated choices. These people are the weakest and worst of our species.

        • Keke2311 says:

          Very well said sir. I say the same damn thing. Ive done drugs myself and never once have i been addicted. I never understood how people grow an addiction. I did my own thing and was very functional. But i could stop when i wanted. I dont do anything now because i finished school and all that just isnt worth all my schooling not only that but im not 21 anymore im 32. Anyway quitting is all in your head. And if you dont wanna quit, learn how to moderate yourself so you wont make yourself look like an idiot by destroying you life by spending every freaking last penny til your homeless. “THE WEAK”

    166. Someone says:

      I agree with some of what was said. The only part I disagree with is when someone says sense they have personally experienced the drug themselves, that makes them suddenly and expert on how that drug affects everyone else. You are one in a million. Even if you know 100 people who had the same affect you did that is nothing compared to the millions. I do agree that some people are weak minded. But to say everyone who has a drug issue only has one cause there weak is pretty ignorant. I won’t even bother telling you my background or experience with drugs cause it’s not even relevant. No matter what I’ve experienced it doesn’t mean everyone will have the same experience as I did. The fact is one drug will affect different people in different ways. Some will have more negative affects the others. Some will be able to get over it no issue. But then it’s not an addiction right?

    167. Peedey Weestro says:

      @ William. Wow. What a bunch of assholes. Just because you were able to kick the spice without withdrawals does not mean that is possible for everyone. I do agree that every person is different. Some people are able to just switch shit off when they are tired of it or just done with it. That does not make you ANY better than any other addict. You are an addict too. Just because you no longer use does not mean you are no longer an addict. This is supposed to be a support group for people who want to get away from this devil of a drug. So your shitty comments and name calling is not wanted, or welcomed here. Go find another forum to troll, you lying piece of shit.

        • Peedey Weestro says:

          Ban me. I don’t care. Your site is full of people who just want to trash on users, which does more harm than help. Sorry, but that is my opinion.

      • Guest says:

        Sometimes being supportive is being a dick. You think the addiction is going to hit you nice? Hell no. So why should anyones comments. We all put ourself in this position and then turn to others to help stop. Why? We need get our ass up and get out of it. We are our only support system we can count on. Do a favor for me go to youtube and watch “why do we fall” thats the only support i could give you.

    168. Stop being ***holes says:

      Spice is ADDICTIVE! I have been smoking on and off since it hit the U.S. in 2006. There are withdrawal symptoms, there is pacing, sweating, hot/cold sweats. My spice withdrawals were worse than when I quit meth. It is serious. Research chemicalsare eextremely potent and addictive. Anything that sticks, (literally sticks) to your CB1 and CB2 Receptors is going to cause a chemical dependency. These people are on here to get help. Please give advice to the addicts and families of addicts. This is a hard habit to kick and the cravings don’t dissipate. If you haven’t done it, DON’T! If you aee using still and want or don’t want to, but need to quit. Get intervention help.

      Hey Page.. Im in a situation right now that my girlfriend is going through withdraws.. She is vomiting when she has nothing in her stomach has cold sweats like crazy… it’s very hard for me and my family to see her like this… but I don’t want her on meds or some hospital either.. It’s taking alot of patience and min by min.. she has been smoking it for 5 years different types she has tried.. I’m so scared for her and idk what I can do for her except stick next to her… plz any suggestions would really appreciate it…

      • David Reyes says:

        Me too for 5 years i have quit before but i messed up and thought it was ok to do it once and got hooked again. Now i have a week clean and im still going through psychological withdrawals. The first week physical withdraws. The physical only last a few days. like 4 to 6 days. Keep her busy make her get up and resume a routine. Its your mind plying tricks once you stop throwing up its all in your head After that. Find fun things to do its important cause your brain is looking for something to make it happy. Its called instant gratification. Fun things might not be instant. But will gratify your brain. Peace. All will be well. Ps what a sneeky drug. We dont see the addiction or psychosis creeping up,

      • Manderly says:

        Is there a reason you can’t take her to hospital to detox? The only way I could stop was to do voluntary lock up in detox. After 10 days it got a lot easier. I still crave it sometimes, and have some psychological damage which may or may not heal, but passing that 10 day mark broke down the some of the hold it had considerably. Thing is, if she’s anything like me, she literally CANT stop. This drug possesses you body, mind, and soul. I’m from Australia though, there are no legal consequences for drug related hospitalisation, and detox is free. I really hope it’s the same for you.
        I know 100% what she’s suffering, and I wouldn’t even wish it on Hitler.
        Extremely important to keep her hydrated, if she cannot keep down water, gastrolyte ice blocks are good. Hot baths and showers may provide some relief.

        It’s day 7, I was still puking last night. So 6 days non stop puking I lost 20 pounds. Hopefully I was overweight 180 for 5.6″.awful freezing cold chills and sweats. I drink vitamin water, aloe Vera. The problem is I puked so much I have horrible acid reflux.

    172. Craig says:

      Hey guys. I’ve been trying to give up for a long time. My only advice is buy an ounce of the strongest weed you can get, and smoke through it. I’m nearly on day four, weed helped me thru the first 3 days, not much, but takes the edge off it. Anyone who advises not to use one drug to get off another, bullshit. Buy strong weed, lock yourself away for 3-4 days, and blast it. Good luck anyone and everyone. Btw I stopped weed on the end of day 3, I still have sweaty hands, but the brain is functioning normally now, and it’s so much easier to deal with.

      • Mr. Relapse #2 says:

        Never any issue swith lack of sleep? So fart thats all I have but I really want to quit but the lack of sleep is really messing me up.. I have relapsed as a result. I only smoke a few bowls at night to go to sleep. Literally maybe like 3-4 bowls in total each night.. Did anything help? I quot in Dec and relapsed for 2-3 mths albeit at alot less.. I use to smoke all day and night, at one point every 15 mins when in a session. This time I relapsed and i ONLY SMOKE AT NIGHT TO SLEEP. I want to quit with minimal withdrawals so no one sees this.. I can beat this..

    175. Matt says:

      I am a 16 year old male that has been using spice for about 2 years now. I would smoke until I passed out and woke up just to smoke more. To be so young, I don’t know how I would go through packs and packs. I Quit for about 5 months and went from 300 pounds to 230. About 3-4 months ago I started using again. The most recent trip I had was when I was sitting on my bed and my mom said I was rocking back and forth with my eyes rolled to the back of my head and they were red as could be. My little 10 year old brother asked the preacher if he would pray for me. The withdrawals are crazy. Some people may not listen to a youngster, but PLEASE listen to me! I’ve hit rock bottom and I’m sure it’s going to happen again before I soon realize how bad my addiction has gotten. I am a football player for West Point high school and I fear if I keep smoking this deadly drug, my career will come to a disappointing end too soon.

        He will get better. Irs crazy to say but coming off the drug is hell its like being on. LSD . It will go away it takes about 30day maybe a little. Longer depending on. How much he smoked. The depression. Is the worst. He will be fine if he stops for good. It just takes time

    177. Adrian says:

      I been clean for. 3 weeks and im so depressed. One min and next min im fine How long dose the Depression last some people are telling that it never goes away. I never had depression. Before. In my life. Im a verry happy person. But this last 3 weeks have been hell … and i pnly smoked it for 30days. If any body know how long plz email. Me at [email protected] yahoo.com or find me on Facebook. With my email thanks for your time

      • NYG20 says:

        It took my 2 months to get my body right after spice. My whole body was numb for 3 weeks after i started. Thats physically, not even talking mentally. 3 weeks after I quit I was so proud to have my life back and to stop smoking so I was not depressed at all.

    178. Too embarrassed to have a name says:

      Hi everyone,
      I really feel for all the people (and the ppl who love them) who are going through this, and I wish you all a successful and speedy recovery. I’m living with this withdrawal alone, as I’m too ashamed to tell anyone I know about what I’ve been doing. You see, I’m not a teenager (in fact, I’m over 40), have a ‘responsible’ job, and have been keeping my legal high smoking just to myself, like a ‘dirty little secret’ for quite a while now. I have a history of anxiety and depression, which ppl think I overcame yrs ago. Except that I didn’t/haven’t, and have been self-medicating a lot over the last yr. In fact, I am just really good at pretending I’m ok, just ‘a bit scatty’. Unlike a lot of ppl on here, I have not lost weight, I have been stacking it on…I was really skinny before, but this stuff has made me develop an insatiable appetite and gain over a stone really quickly (not great for my self-esteem!).
      I have to admit, I really did like smoking the stuff, and the feeling of escapism it gave me; but I knew it would have to stop, as I could no longer concentrate, had become apathetic, and sparked up a smoke the minute I woke up (on a w/e, or as soon as I got home after work). I would be like a zombie most of the time, and have the equivalent of a ‘hangover’ every morning. I have now been off the drug for a week, and feel extremely weird. I have an on/off (but mainly ‘on’) strange sensation in my head, like a throbbing pressure, swimming brain, slight dizziness, but no pain; I have been crying and depressed for the last 4 days; not hungry any more, but comfort-eating, regardless. TBH, I feel like absolute shit.
      I will beat this though, I’m damned sure of it!! For a start, the disgusting cough and constant wheeze I had has diminished, and this withdrawal is certainly less than I experienced in days gone by, like with the vast amount of speed I used to take many years ago. Like then, I’ve been questioning myself about the underlying issues that make me do this kind of thing, and I know that I still have a lot of past hurt to deal with; but I can’t deal with that crap until I can think straight and deal with it all head-on.
      My advice is to try not to panic (sufferers, and their loved ones), ride the withdrawal, even though it feels like hell. We can all get through this, and come out the other side. Then we can use this terrible experience to tell our stories to help others do the same.
      Good luck, we can do it (although it feels like we won’t at times)!!! x

          We have very similar symptoms. I was on the road driving and had to come home. Every time I light a cigarette my head pounds. I lack focus. And I’ve never had that problem. Does anyone know how long this last? I already have high blood pressure and this makes it worse. Im on day ten. Im 40

        I am 44yrs old and been selfmedicating for 30 yrs. Never shot drugs but everything else under the sun. I started smoking “kush” because i didn’t want to fail another weed test and be jailed again away from family. Worst mistake ever. This stuff is dangerous. I’ve spent the last hour reading these stories and im convinced that this stuff is evil. Ive never felt this bad ever. The sweats, shaking, tears, muscles hurt, can’t eat, 2hrs max sleep at a time. I feel like my body is shutting down. I quit cold turkey yesterday for the idk the 10th time. Each time I give in cause of the withdrawal. I know I need to stop and want to. Damn this stuff. Any suggestions??

          • Yo says:

            I don’t smoke in any capacity, so I can’t relate to withdrawals, but you sound wicked dehydrated. You can deal with the medical bills or have chronic renal damage. Fix yourself.

      • hipt says:

        I’ve went through it a few times.. Just try to sleep a lot and keep yourself hydrated. good luck go ya

      • DON'T GIVE UP says:

        Went through it about a year ago. I was a long time user (around 6 yrs daily). It does get better! My normal weight is about 210 lbs. By the end of it I was at 150. Some other symptoms I experienced that I didn’t see listed were: decreased sensation and extreme thirst. The main thing is to STAY HYDRATED. I know how that sounds when you can’t keep anything down, but remember that you’re still taking in some fluids in even if you’re puking them up in minutes. Just keep drinking water. If you have to, go to the ER and get an IV (I had to twice). Don’t give up! It’s the worst experience I’ve ever had, but the best reward as well. I feel like I’ve gotten myself back. My personality, my wit, my sense of humor, my emotions (those ran rampad during withdrawls), my intelligence, and yes, after about a year, my weight as well. Best of all I’ve got my family and friends back. My withdrawals lasted about 6 weeks, decreasing along the way. After that my appetite was stronger than I ever remember it. I’m 38 and I could easily out eat any teenage football player twice over. JUST KEEP GOING, IT GETS SOOOO MUCH BETTER!!!

I saw things I heard things I thought I went crazy.just quit man. You have to be strong and you have to know it will be okay. It’s just spice. It’s withdrawals buddy they go away. Just throw the shit away and realizeit’s bad for you.

    181. v says:

      I smoked fake for about 8 monthes and spent about 5000$ in that short amount of time I quit fake about 6 weeks ago and still have been having crazy side effects such as depression,emotionless, flu like symptoms in my body, incresed heart rate,bad memory problems, severe anxiety which I’ve never had any anxiety problems before fake, hard time thinking or talking with anyone, sweating, panic attacks and hard time with reality I still been smoking weed to help with the symptoms and some days I feel good but most days im a wreck and I feel like I cant control how I feel some days ill be happy one minute than completely depressed and wanting to die the next . Up till i started fake i was going to the gym all the time and hanging out with people all the time up until a few monthes after I started smoking fake I started pushing everyone away bc I just didnt have anything to talk about with anyone all I talked bout was fake I haven’t been to the gym for monthes and have no motivation of even leaving my room unless its to get high I still work but its hard and I been late and calling off alot and close to being fired i just wanted to see if anybody knows how long this will last and if its smart to smoke weed to get off of fake bc I miss the old me and after 6 weeks I can see a little bit of good but not nearly as much as I thought I should if anyone could please give there input

        Don’t worry, I was very bad on it. I would also talk loud, I would slam doors without knowing it was loud, I would see crazy things and would hear crazy things. It got bad and it was scary but yes I promise it will be okay. Just help him keep busy. He’ll be in my prayers. Spice is a bad drug and the withdrawals suck. I thought I went crazy. I acted like an animal. Just have faith he will okay don’t worry

      effects have started to show 11/23/2014

    185. Dave says:

      Smoked spice for a good 3-4 years. Every day, when i awoke, and all night. Let me tell you all, the new strain will make you ill. Vomitting every AM to the point my stomach was empty. I used to take 2 day breaks about a year ago and NEVER exp the new stuff. The sweating was so obssesive it was emberrasing. It gets you high..
      And new strains will make you have terrible panick attacks. This never happened before. Finally i kicked it. It also led me to detox alcolism. I feel bad for anyone who quits. I suggest get to a hospital asap if ya quit… My right lung is also gross. I coughed up black shit all day when i smoked spice. Now i just found out this shlt will destroy your lungs. I wish all the best and get medical help bc your WILL get panick attacks and anxiety that will give you cardiac failure..

    186. exodus says:

      i smoked spice for a good 3 months non stop. my biological body clock was complete mess. the maximum i would sleep for was 2 hours until i wake up and take another hit and eventually pass it again for 2 hours. when i stopped i felt like i was going to die. i had no apetite and i went through extreme depression along with all the other symptoms. the best way to explain spice is it literally FRIES ur brain. now a year later i thank god i feel completely normal. Spice sucks the life out of you and the people around you. i also quit cold turkey, it may seem impossible at first but trust me that feelling when you have a proper sleep after a while is 1000000 times better than the high you will get

    187. Ron says:

      This shit will make u think u got skitzophrienia. Made me feel terrified. Tremors. Made me feel petrified all my body functions where off went to work and couldnt even get out of car cuz I thought I was gonna die. No appetite. Sleep for 2 hours smoke a bowl then sleep for two more hours. It makes u feel like ur going crazy don’t worry it does go away and will get better but please stay away from this shit. It will fuck with u. Just smoke weed trust me.

      • Nameless says:

        My ex boyfriend is psycho now from k2. His hygiene is bad, his skin is awful. His teeth are badly stained and he is poor now from smoking that stuff, PLEASE GET HELP IF U CAN, IT ONLY GETS WORSE

    188. Kendall says:

      I have been on it for a year now. Off and on for five. My mom and my youngest brother have both died. Six years ago my brother at eighteen months old to drowning. And nine months ago my mother at forty six to suicide. I was using spice to help my depression and in order to find a good job in my trade. It got to the point where I was walking to the store that sold it at seven am sharp to get another few bags for the day. I used to buy bulk to save and the addiction sucked that right out of me in no time. I have trued to quit. The withdrawals as you have read are right on the dot. Just looking at people eating made me sick. I lost like forty pounds after going to jail for a week due to the withdrawals. I wasn’t planning on using when I got out. I did… That same night. A girl I met is head strong enough and has been through this shit too has helped me switch back to my one true love… Mary Jane. Mary Jane has helped the withdrawals tremendously. Especially with eating. I’m never smoking serenity(my term in spring,tx) again. I am one month clean. I will tell you though. It will take a while for MJ to get you where you want. Just be patient… Or you’ll become one. The withdrawals WILL pass! It is evil and will do nothing but bring the evil person out in you. The person you are, on it, is NOT you. It is everything you are not. It will treat the people you love and you with no respect. Only selfishness…. Please give a SAFER alternative a chance!

    189. potato says:

      THE CRAZIEST THING ABOUT THESE POSTS to me is that I only smoked for like two and a half weeks and dint smoke daily, but i did buy this shit called “DAFUQ” a lot and whoever i smoked it with always tripped out but anyway this shit was the most potent blend that they have at the store i go to. The last bag i bought i only smoked a blunt… because i woke up in the middle of the night and seen some black shit in the cup i had been spitting in, and this was weird to me because i didn’t spit up any black shit (another time i spit in a bottle a couple of times, because as i smoke it i seem to build up A LOT of mucus, when i opened the bottle the next day the bottle smelled of paint thiner and acetone) … i immediately took it and flushed the shit down the toilet and have felt bad for anyone that i had been smoking with. the bag comes in 6 grams and is only 10 bucks so cheap shits ridic. 1 hitter quitter no matter who aswell… the withdrawls for me started the night of quitting i woke up in a cold sweat and went str8 to the toilet to vomit not to mention the hot/cold flash bullshit… only thing that helps me there is a cold rag or frozen meat on my neck, i went to the hospital because of the Nasua i couldn’t eat anything, not because it was bad food cus i couldnt even look at it without having to run to a bag/trash/toilet… or sleep i could deal with the sweats its day 2 and the flashes are subsiding but every once in awhile i feel like i am floating dizzy kind of and faint, but it goes quick. but does return =[ my body temp seems to be constantly high.. always hot all over the worst part is waking up from ur 5 min nap(supposed to be that 8 hrs) with ur arm twitching or ur leg tapping. FUCK SPICE K2 FWEED

    190. GabsterLovzJP says:

      My husband had started smoking this stuff and was buying it from a guy at his job. He smoked it for about a month was having side affects like crazy he just wasnt the same person I fell in love with. The first time he smoked too much at once was getting sick couldnt walk or stand had the shakes it was so bad thought he was gonna die… he continue for a month he was jittery (couldnt stop moving), paranoid, was wanting to get real close to me… in other words it makes you a total different person. He finally quit and started smoking regular weed (trust me I recommend) after I begged him to quit and hes been sober for two weeks and the after affects are lessoning and hes himself again. 🙂 The worst after affect he had was sweating real bad. Anyways I DO NOT RECOMMENT SMOKING THIS STUFF IT CAN AND EVENTUALLY LEAD TO CHANGE IN PERSONALLITY, HEALTH ISSUES, OR WORSE DEATH!

      • Free says:

        My ex boyfriend teeth turned Brown from smoking that stuff, he looks awful, he doesn’t take care of himself anymore. He used to have a job, now he doesn’t. He is a complete loser and bum now, he refused to quit

    191. Diego says:

      I was addicted to spice since I was 16. I am now 20 and realize that I have to get on the ball with life already, I can’t be fuckin around if I want to become the great person that I dream to be. Yes it is hard, the first day I tried quitting cold turkey and my body completely shut down, couldn’t sleep or eat. I kept drinking water, it was the only thing that didn’t make me gag. It gets easier after the fourth day, just exercise constantly to tire your body out to force yourself to sleep, take some zzzquil if you have to. If you ever feel like doing it, call a friend, or go to a friends house and just talk it out. Hell even go to alcoholics anonymous meetings. My friend recommended these meetings and it has helped me let go of my thoughts and really understand why I decided to do drugs in the first place. After seeing those guys in those meetings and how fucked up their lives became after drugs I realized this is not what I want for me. I didn’t want to turn 21 and still acting like a little kid. Stop fucking around and tell yourself, “I’ll never be successful if I’m still on this shit”… keep telling yourself that and it’ll help. Pick up a book and read, keep your mind busy. Idle hands are the devils workshop. Join a gym, it’ll help.

    192. OutFromUnder says:

      Ugh. “Smoking more fake pot will only delay the process and will make all of the time you went through the withdrawal absolutely pointless.” completely contradicts what my doctor told me. My doctor told me to ween off for a week, halving the amounts I smoke each day, then stop completely at the end of the week.

      If you are truly addicted, I honestly think that’s the best way to go. I’m pretty sure I would have ended up in the ER or morgue if I went cold turkey.

      • NYG20 says:

        Yea, I almost died from Cold Turkey. Throwing up every 20mins for first 3 days. If i didn’t get an IV I would have died from dehydration. Didn’t eat for 14 days, and didn’t feel right for about 3-4 weeks. Jesus christ was it worth it. Now I only smoke weed, and when I have to stop I don’t go through horrible withdrawls

    193. No Fucks Given says:

      Nobody knows of my addiction. This is no joke. After smoking frequently between 2011-2013, I managed to quit cold turkey for all of 2014 mainly because the one place I would go to had stopped selling it and I didn’t know where else to look. I was also embarrassed to go from store to store to ask since I felt like a total bum. For some reason, around the start of 2015, I was curious about the status of spice and searched around the internet. Apparently, you can order it online and have it shipped straight to you door. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DOING SO. DO NOT BE A WEAK-MINDED FUCKWIT AND START LOOKING FOR THAT SHIT ONLINE OKAY? Well, I relapsed on 02/01/15 and have been smoking it for 6 months straight. I could go no more than 3-4 days before ordering again. I started a new job on 03/18/15 so I was already a month and a half into my addiction and I can tell you I fucking hate working at this place and the people here and I feel the spice is responsible for these feelings. I just feel so damn weird all the time. I have made a pact with God to stop (yes, it helps to PRAY) and if you don’t believe in God, then at least do this for somebody you love. I’m on day 6 since I last smoked but I’ve only made the decision to finally stop about two days ago when I woke up and literally couldn’t walk a straight path. I’ve dealt with sweats/chills/dry heaving/loss of appetite/trouble swallowing/no feeling in my tongue throughout my withdrawals. Just this morning as I got up for work, my heart was beating out of my chest and I broke into tears all of a sudden. I’ve been losing a lot of weight again and I haven’t touched anything in the fridge for days. It’s horrible when you’re so tired from not sleeping, yet you lay there and still can’t sleep. I lie down and sweat basically. I definitely feel that this stuff has fucked with me psychologically and I can only hope that it isn’t permanent. I’m 23 now and actively finishing up my education. The secret is to find other interests or go back to school dammit. You wanna do something that will make you feel proud. I’m constantly having to tell myself that I’ll eventually hit the gym because I know, for sure, that exercise is literally the remedy to everything. You just gotta do some research online; spend that time that you’d be normally taking to smoke and learn some new things. I feel so close to ending the addiction, yet I am still so far. Stay very strong, guys. I will be on here.


    194. Bill says:

      So I decided to quit the spice on Friday I was off on Saturday and started feeling withdrawals So 430 in the morning I decide I need to smoke to get an hours sleep before I go to work worst decision I ever made my face went numb my legs went numb and I felt as if I was going to die I got out of the hospital about 20 minutes ago the doctors didn’t know what was going on and I felt like I was going to die reading the articles on these forums has helped me tremendously to know that there’s other people out there in my situation if you stumble across this and are deciding to get into this s*** don’t do it save yourself the grief the agony and the feeling of complete misery that kicking the s*** has made me feel

    195. Kyra says:

      I’ve quit this fucking drug twice now… cold turkey… this’ll be my third attempt. I relapsed after an entire year of not touching the stuff because I was going on vacation. I’m on day 5 of withdrawal now and even though its getting better, yesterday was the first time I was able to eat anything (a lunchable- – that’s it)! We all have to hang in there…. this shit really is fucking evil. I never thought about it before but this time around has really fucked me up psychologically. To be completely honest, if you would like insight as to how crazy it has left me… at some point while smoking; I would tend to sit up in bed in the middle of the night [1/2 asleep] and smoke a bowl then go back to bed. However, most of the time I wouldn’t make it to lay back down so I’d fall asleep sitting up…. well apparently one night I slumped forward while tripping so hard that I must have (unknown to my stoned ass) gotten a headache…. suddenly I trip out that I grab a revolver from my dresser and while high I shoot myself in the head…. instantly I hear a loud pitching ringing in my ear and this intense heat and pain on the side of my head, this AWFUL taste of copper and metal in my mouth… I must have made a sound because all of a sudden I feel my husband trying to snap me out of my trip but all my high mind could think was “omg I really did shoot myself, I haven’t died yet, and I can hear my poor husband agonizing and screaming over my body and what I imagine is me laying in a pool of my own blood with a gun in my hand.” Sidenote: if you don’t think this can happen to you…. ask yourself why in the fuck I would take so much time to type this out. That trip left me so fucked up, that these past couple of days, if for just ONE instance I’m not in pain from the withdrawal, I freak out and start to think I really did kill myself and am stuck in a WD limbo for all eternity…. yeah this shit makes you crazy! Believe me! Trying to get myself back to MJ and calm the hell down again! Good Luck to all struggling with this right now! #staystrong

    196. Goat says:

      I have done some personal research. This “Spice” is also absorbed through skin and lingers in places you’ve smoked. It can reside in your clothes and in your linens. My girl never smoked. She was so sensitive to it that she got “blowed” just being at my house. She laid in my bed just for a sec and it absorbed right in to her skin and she could feel it. I have a few friends that want to stop but are in a house with others that do. People just the littlest bit of this stuff makes the withdrawals stick around longer. You need to air the place out, clean everything you sweated on. Gotta clean it cause it will still be there if you just leave for a bit.

    197. scott says:

      Ok I smoked kisha cole and mr sin back and forth for three months and I am 3 days clean, the detox has me feeling severely depressed, I dont crave synthetic or any weed now, I have no control over my emotions, sweating, puking, diarrhea, tremors,, I cry, ALOT! I cant control the tears or panic attacks even though im on anxiety meds for that, my heart races, been like it since 4 hrs clean, I was wondering when I may get some relief, the depression isnt the type that makes you wanna die, its the type that makes ya cry all day, this is day three, someone please help me thru it, let me know what else to expect

    198. Emma says:

      I was using spice daily for 2 years. Starting at the age of 14. While I was high I used to hear things I would think the people around me were talking to me but they weren’t. I would see things. I would go into like a daze of delusions seeing things in my head weather it be things I never saw before or things I’ve seen. It was weird. But now I am experiencing really bad effects from it and I have been off it for almost a year. My biggest one is paranoia. I feel like people are plotting against me, talking about me, laughing at me. I have really bad social anxiety, I can’t hold a conversation. When I feel like someone is looking at me I have uncontrollable body movements. I walk weird when I’m in public. It’s been almost a year and I still am having these effects. Every day is a battle for me. I’m a teenage girl, just trying to finish high school and fit in. But I just simply can’t, does anyone have these side effects? Does anyone have advice for me? I hope it stops. I don’t know if I can take it much longer.

    199. Anonymous says:

      Idk what makes me so different but ill detox for about 6 days at the most before i give in. You know how most people say theyve done merh crack herion and cant get off spice? Its because most k2 users started using in the first place because they’ve wound up in some kind of court ordered drug treatment class where the screens are heavily on point. I cant keep a job if i never sleep and go to work without being able to eat and just sweat out any fluids within the first hour. I will not drip sweat i will literally pour streams of sweat off my chin. I do not emcourage this but as a past and once im a blue moon meth user i used meth for two weeks so i could stop and finally sleep. Ive been sleeping and eating and my work is back to normal. Its just insane that out of my whole life of using any time i just want to be clean which isnt a struggle for me at all…turns out to be one hell of a struggle because i know the stuff is cheap and i actually crave it 24/7

    200. stanly says:

      Well its 5:30 am and ive had 2hrs sleep. This stuff is evil no doubt about it. I smokedmy last at 7:00 last night telling myself I was not getting anymore. Been done that rd. it is poweful and has physical withdrawal symptoms. Does anybody have some good news? Is there anything I can do other than suffer? Maybe a kind of supplement or vitamins? Idk but surly someone has found something to help with the physical withdrawal from this crap. I smoked pot for 30yrs and NEVER have felt like this. Wish I still could smoke it. Wouldn’t be in this shape now. So I am just one hurting person out here in a mess trying to get back. If u think or know you have the answer PLEASE share it with the world. I’ll try anything.

        • stanly says:

          Thank you I have licked the physical part of this addiction. No more chills or night sweats. no more not being able to eat I’ve done put on 10 pounds. now it’s just the hard part of learning how to be me something I don’t think I’ve ever been. But I’m definitely better today than I was yesterday and I’m thankful

      This is a milestone for me. I can go right down the road & get some apple kush right now if I wanted to. And I do but im not. I hope not. This stuff is evil. I so wish the powers to be would get their head out of clouds and go ahead and federally reverse the archaic laws about pot. Be truthful basically the only reason anybody smoke fake is cause real will put you in jail. But anyway this is day 2 & its not as bad this time around. Im shoveling grits, rice, and soda crackers down my throat. Whether i think I need it or not. We will see by the end of the day

        • stanly says:

          The withdrawals r over. Well physical ones that is. Ive “selfmedicated” for years so going cold turkey without anything is a mental challenge but its just something im dealing with. Trying to repair the relaionships that I had put to the breaking point because of my problems. I dont like to use the word addict because i truly believe i am what I say I am. And I am not a addict because that means a ongoing battle is ragging. I had a problem and I am solving my problem. I am free from this mess physically and now I am tackling the mental part of my problem. Some people wont like this because of the way they were brought up to believe. But im telling everyone you r truly what you say u r.and if I say I am a addict in recovery then in my mind that gives power to something that has none. I am the master of my own fate. It is truly up to me what happens to me. I lost a wife my son, countless jobs, respect from my own family all because of my “problems” well I am not self medicating anymore. Im facing my problems head on. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is not what I thought it would be for me. U c I still have lost everything i lost. I didnt get it back, I cant. To much has passed. I say all of this for one reason. We only get one shot at each day that we r granted here on this earth. And I for the past 44yrs have thrown away those days.I know can only hope I have another 44yrs left that I can try to do better and make those memories that we all desperately want. Cause lets face thats all there is in the end right? Memories to reflect on that bring joy not hurt. It took me 44yrs and a lot of pain both to me abd others before I saw the light. Dont be the supreme dumbass that I have been. Dont throw away the days that u have been blessed with. Fight fight fight. Try putting all that energy into positive things. Do anything you got to do. But do it. Im just one simple man that has lived through a problem that I created for myself. Dont be like me. Stop get help open ur eyes. Life is not peaches and cream, definitely not like a box of chocolate. U know whats coming tomorrow because you made it that way. But I know that it can get better. You maybe like me. You may have lost things u can’t get back. It hurts. I missed my only sons growing up years because of my problem. Whatever your situation is, no matter how bad it got just know it coyld get worse and you dont want that. Stay strong in your resolve to be the better person u know u can be. You can do it. If I can anyone can. I didn’t get everything back

    202. stanly says:

      The little one I see in the picture is the greatest gift of all. That alone you should cherish anf let be ur total goal in life as im sure u belive as well. Its a precious gift. Fight fight fight

    203. Ellie says:

      me and my boyfriend threw our bowl and kicked the habbit yesterday. ive been throwing up and sweating badly all day, i just feel like death. not sure if its worth it to tell him to buy more or keep going on this path. im really struggling

      • Nena Torres says:

        Don’t go back to it, I’ve been sober for a year but my husband has experienced the withdrawals heavy, even muscle spasms! Its really damaging to your body! Look ahead and sike ur mind out of thinking that you’ll feel better if u smoked again. Not worth loosing brain cells and heaven knows what else these bags have in. Dangerous chemicals that r like heavy drugs. God bless u and good luck, StAy Strong!

      • Nena Torres says:

        It takes about 2 weeks to lose the bad withdrawal symptoms. Stay focused eat, and try to not over think ur with drawals its not permanent just something u have to go thru in order to RID OF THESE CHEMICALS

      • stanly says:

        You will never stop until you stop. Remember that my friend in the struggle. Water, water, and more water. Soda crackers and grits were the only thing I can keep down for a few days. the physical withdrawals will pass I promise. you just have to get over them. but you will never get over them if you don’t stop. be strong live life but not as an addict is no fun take it from me

    204. Ricardo says:

      Be strong give yourself and your body some time !!! It will all pass. Me and my wife were addictied for 7 years and them 2 weeks it took to detox was well worth it. We finally got control of our life back !!! It’s the most beautiful thing we felt in a lot of years. We have been now clean 1 and a half year. Be strong and don’t give up if you are trying to leave this dangerous drug.

    205. Jay says:

      Omg this sucks. This crap has me in pain, mentally and physically. Smoked a variety of k2 for about 2 years and coming off now. Been clean for 5 days now and the withdrawal symptoms don’t seem to be getting better.

      • stanly says:

        The days will get better. It can be different. I think I finally decided that I wanted to have a chance at a normal life. That is one that something else didn’t have complete control of me in. I want some real life now. Does that make sense? Be strong man. Be strong.

    206. Jay says:

      Not to mention I think we might have been supporting terrorists considering all those arrested last week had Arabic names.

    207. Sharon Boyer says:

      I am the one who needs the help as I live with two addicts. They are my grandsons and they are stealing me blind. I don’t know how to inspire them to quit or get help in quitting. They are both of age and both say it is just too hard to quit. I know this makes me a first class enabler but that is my problem.
      Any words of wisdom will be of help.

      • stanly says:

        You have difficult time ahead of you. I can only say with complete honesty that it is not up to you. I’m 44 if I wanted to smoke I would still smoke no matter what anyone said or did. I would get it by any means if I truly wanted it. I’m not sure if you want to call it a breaking point or what but your grandsons will have to make a decision for themselves. true you can be an enabler but you could also make life a living hell for yourself. you obviously love your family and I guarantee you your family loves you. it took me 30 years to come around to know that I didn’t need to be high anymore. not that I don’t want to be because I do I don’t need to be high anymore. I would pray that no one has to loose as much as me but reality is a hard road. You have a rough time ahead. Maybe if they were to see first hand juat how bad things can really get? Not info from some book or someone hundreds of miles away. Im a realist by nature and its a hard thing to take. Reality. I feel for you because i know how bad of a strain I put on my family. and I know how much I lost as a result. Maybe seeing first hand and up close and personal just how bad things can be maybe that would spark a change in the way they think. I don’t think anybody truly has the correct answer because everybody is different. I just know you can’t give up family is all you have. Be stong for your family. you yourself to seek support from others you’re going to need it. addiction is a crazy thing that does not care about anything or anybody unfortunately. I would hope nobody & I mean nobody would have to live as long as I feel like I have lost. I am at 2 weeks now clean from a nightmare that had me for over 30 years. The last 4 of those on spice, fake weed, k2, or whatever you want to call it. The physical is gone. that truly was the easiest. now im faced every day with how to really live without being in the cloud that I was so used to be in. I truly wish I knew a magic answer for you I would tell you but I don’t. just stay strong and love your family and don’t give up on them. but definitely do not enable them. I pray for you

      • Lisa says:

        I read your subsequent post and am very happy that one of your grandsons has stopped using spice. Unfortunately, you are a big part of your grandson’s problem. I’m sure this sounds harsh but it’s the truth. As long as you are providing him with everything he needs to keep his addiction alive and well – food on the table, roof over his head, gas money, etc – he has absolutely no reason to stop. You may as well be handing him the drugs. This will not stop until you do, IF he survives. If you think he’s safer because he’s in your house, think again. I just spoke to a dad whose son had a seizure from spice right in front of him and he was helpless to do anything. They don’t know yet if the effects are permanent.

        • Sharon Boyer says:

          Thank you Lisa I appreciate your input. All this I Know and I was just too weak to do anything else. He has stolen from me till I am sick. I believe he has stolen a $20,000 diamond. Every day I see things he has taken and that includes cash and coin. I really doesn’t matter “what” he has stolen it is the drug that is promoting him. As of this week end he is no longer in my house. His mother, (also a recovering spice user) has rented him a house and is paying all his expenses. He is supposed to go to detox and re-hab this week but I have my doubts. I am finding it very hard to hold any love for him at all. I am so pissed and hurt I almost can’t get around it. This CRAP IS KILLING ME . I am not a young person, I am 75 and the stress is just too much.
          The way I feel right now I don’t care if he gets help or not. I will not have him in my home. This is a story I have heard a hundred times, people do drugs then drugs do the people. I am just sick of it.

      • Anna says:

        Sharon… U got to let them learn their lesson. All the money in the world won’t make them quit. And not having the money could put u at harm. Maybe just move it to a diffrent place. But truth is two men. Need to get through it together if not on their own their is only so much u can do without putting urself at harm. Just be there for them and when they stop don’t judge them based on this… Spice… Is no joke. But just like a physcadelic. The mind state a person is in when on the drug. Determines their trip. So sometime the best thing to do is nothing. If u have faith in ur grandsons they will kick it. Just please be supportive and keep bringing it up as an option some addicts don’t feel quiting is an option because of the brain. But it is it there and they can do but not without support! Best of luck Sharon

    208. Leo Montana says:

      Been addicted for 5 years , 5 says clean and the withdrawals are kicking my butt. I just got a job at a warehouse making paint. Boy am I living hell! Sweating so excessively I almost feel like crying in desperation, I can’t catch my breathe, not to mention the nautia and vomiting. Even worse is the fact that inside it smells so bad!!!! Luckily I’ve found two medications that have made it a little easier specially with the nautia/vomiting. I take promethezane for the vomit/nautia and take ibuprofen 600mg to make feel normal. The only thing I can’t fix is the sweating!!!!!!

      • stanly says:

        Kick this addiction. That is grand. Be careful though. They are many wolves that walk around in sheep’s clothes. Go talk to some other faiths my friend in the struggle. Don’t replace one bad addiction that was harming you in the present with another that will harm you for eternity. Believe in God yes, not in a faith that excludes everyone else. Be strong in ur resolve

      • Sharon says:

        I will pray for you Leo and tell you thiks is just the getting over part. The next part is gettingit out of your head. I have 2 grandson’s going thru the same thing. Rest on this….if God led me to it he will see me through it. He is always by your side and will never, never leave you. That is a promise made by God to us. God bless you Leo.

    209. B says:

      I’m so concerned about my boyfriend he has been smoking spice only about 3 months but the paranoia has got so bad he stopped yesterday, but we were talking on the phone earlier and he was afent someone was listening in on the call and was talking to them. How long will this last? Does it stay in your system long?

    210. kyle spencer says:

      I was wondering if someone could help. I am 18 and This year i was really stressed about school and my friend said he knew someone who sold “thc vape juice” i bought some because i thought it would help with the stress. So i used it occasionally for a couple months. However a few days ago he tells me it was synthetic thc! I have stopped for 7 days now but i feel really absent minded and like time is skipping. Im terrified and could someone please tell me if these effects are perminant or how long they will take to go away? I threw away the juice already but i am freaking out worrying i have brain damage from smoking somthing i thought was just thc. I probably used the stuff 15-20 times total and it was diluted with other vape juice

      • kendrick says:

        you will feel like your normal self in no time just keep your mind busy and keep your body healthy. Can i ask you a couple of questions? Would you need to smoke to sleep? or to eat? would you wake up every 30 mins to an hour just to hit? i was a hardcore incense addict i had stopped 6 months a while back and relapsed.Recently i just quit this is my 7th day im feeling almost normal again but i wont feel like myself maybe until a couple of months.

    211. Adam Lucus says:

      42 days ago I read this article and have not been back since everything that they say is true. Spice has it been around that long but 6 years 7 years. I was on it for five and a half. Can’t tell you from what time to what time I stop smoking it with friends and started buying my own bags. It stop getting me as high, that have intense night sweats, would not remember days times when I blacked out. Everything I read this article was true about me so I knew it was time to get help and now I’m 42 days sober have my family back and I’m loving life. I have money now, I added it up and spent over $8,000 on it. It put me in the hospital, but that life is now gone. I would like to advocate for anybody who thinks they can’t get through your first two and a half 3 weeks it gets better there’s hope you never ever have to smoke it again. You are worth it you deserve a life without it, your family deserves to have you back so stop punishing them. Get yourself help, because I would not have been able to do it on my own. A great support system is needed, and to not associate with whoever is getting it for you or with you. I have a TeamAdam page on Facebook if you would like to track my progress. (TeamAdam) you can do it and you are strong you have to want to though.

    212. Bird says:

      I had a bad stint with this drug a few years back; smoked too much, vision went black, time lapses and all that fun stuff. Every so often I’ll have a little when I go to my father’s house, though. This past weekend I ended up doing a little more than normal, a bit every day. One day I full out tripped, visual disturbances and all. It felt nice though.

      Skip to today. I’ve only been smoking this stuff for 4-5 days, a little at a time just at dinner, and I’m already craving some again. My gums itch, I’m sweating up a storm, and I feel spacey. It reminds me of the time I quit nicotine cigarettes (relapsed only once, 2.5 years clean!) and it almost makes me want to buy a pack. But I know I’m stronger than that. It really does kick in the urge to revisit old habits.

      Anyway, stay strong everyone. Again, I’m feeling like crap after only 4-5 days of smoking the stuff. I can’t imagine the withdrawal from you all quitting after weeks, months, and years! Best of thoughts to you!

    213. Gavin Avila says:

      I took a hit and everything went blueish my TV at the time the image froze and was flipping I heard clown like music and the hallway leading out my door was black I remember hearing scratches like on wood I started calling my mom then I started yelling for my mom guys ive done drugs but this scared me i thought i was stuck in that realm or dimension whatever it was it wasn’t my house and heard nothing but clown music and scratches on wood so I freaked out then the worst thing happened. From the blackness I was at a angle I saw a head peek threw my door it was like nothing I’ve seen it was like the alien from signs with Mel Gibson it was the scariest thing in my life I backed up to the corner in my room scared to death yelling for help thinking I was stuck where ever my brain was my yelling stopped when a different thing tall long person dark and gary I can to this day draw what I saw but once that creature grabbed me I just woke up the color returned to the room my light was on my brother was at my door looking in and my mother was holding me. People stop smoking spice cheesecake whatever they call it long term use will take you to a place were you don’t know the end to the trip I was so scared I was psychotic like I turned insane I went somewhere else I know I did cause the place was so different where ever it was I got there by smoking k2 spice or whatever so guys stop I wish there was more on this drug cause it will kill people!

      • Gavin Avila says:

        And looking back I should of got up and walked around cause that was had to be a another world

          What i want to know is what possessed you or any other person to take it in the first place ?

      • j m. says:

        A woman in Phoenix, an insurance salesperson with 4 beautiful kids, got some spice to unwind after work. She tripped out bad had a horrible trip, murdered all 4 kids, dismembered them and slit her own throat. She is now living her worst nightmare in jail awaiting prison, grieving her babies, missing her life, and all from spice. Look up Octavia Rogers. Its horrible. It could happen to anyone.

    214. Lacy Melancon says:

      It is my third day and I cant sleep every time i close my eyes I start talking out load and having dreams that seem so real to me. Im terrified to close my eyes and dont know if it will pass. Im to the point where I want to go to the hospital.

    215. Ducan MichL says:

      Two men “occupying” my house seem to be on this mess. Everyday the waste can stinks of grape ‘candy’ they go out to the car 2 or 3 times every evening after work to smoke, lately one man won’t pay his rent and when he becomes “annoyed” he acts psychotic. They both keep regular jobs yet spend the entire weekend sitting in the dark, shades closed, on flimsy futons in the living room corner staring at their phones, eating junk food, chewing ‘Grisly’ or napping. If I ask them to stop rolling IN the house they go berserk and being mexican, act like mafia hoods. The cockroach population is exploding and my own home now feels like a prison but they don’t care about anything except getting their next high and ruling “their” (room) turf. I’m fixing to add some household chems to that turf to speed-up their “exit” – who’d ever know! :[

    216. Daisy says:

      I have been smoking spice for around a year this is my first night off of it and I’ve been vomitting, crying I don’t no how I’m gunna sleep I don’t think I can get through this !!!! HELP

      • Blyss says:

        If you never prayed to God before do it now. Does anyone you trust know. If not tell someone. If you dont want anyone to know… just call 911 CALL Them…

      • Marvin says:

        Get you some Nyquil that will help you sleep. Then get you liquid tylenol, that will help you with the pain from vomitting.

    217. Michael Allen says:

      This will be the fifth time I’ve started smoking spice only to quit.Ive been smoking on and off for 5+years and the first few times I quit it wasn’t so hard and the withdrawals were mild mostly nausea, trouble sleeping and eating..the hardest part of quitting then was its ease of access and it was cheap.But in the past year and a half I’ve had to be hospitalized due to the severity of the withdrawals both physical and mental..and now being the moron that I am I just quit again two days ago after using every day for about a month and it wasn’t so bad this time thank God.it seemed as though when I wanted to quit continuing to smoke only made me feel worse mentally while I did feel a little better physically.Your mind plays tricks on you telling you that smoking more is the only way to feel better.This is a lie . I feel so much better only after two days I thank Jehovah God for helping me again and I pray I’ve finally learned my lesson

    218. clueless says:

      I have smoked spice for years and still smoke from time to time now and I have never went through withdraws… I have been on pills and herion and that was the wprat I have ever been… I never knew you really could withdraw of spice…

    219. Blyss says:

      So this is day 6 off of K2. I almost had a panic attack but when it started I simple calmed down. Since my stupid ass suffers from depression and anxiety anyway. I have meds for that.I dont mean Im stupid as a person. Stupid for trying it in the first place since i was warned no. Anyway… I had a boiled egg…that tasted like a fucking boiled egg. Couple bites of a sandwich that tasted like a sandwich… OH GOD. I already have high blood pressure so I took my meds and it helps. So on day 4 off the stuff I was getting into the car to go some where I had a major anxiety attack. When the paramedic was doing their thing asking questions I didnt tell them the truth. Just told them i was an attack an was non conplaint in taking my meds. Doc gave me Valume. That helped…. This helps… Hope this helps you too.

    220. Blyss says:

      And put all together I dont even thing I smoked a whole gram. But people watch those youtube videos and read these stories ONE HIT>>>>and you could DIE

    221. Blyss says:

      Last night my fiancee came into our bedroom he was standing over me. His tatoos where glowing and moving. I started to scream. I didnt tell him about that. I will today when he comes home from work.

    222. Vandy Johnston says:

      How long does the withdrawals last is in 5 days and still can’t eat can’t sleep sweat and I’m tired someone please help me

      • Micah says:

        Hey vandy. I am also in day 5. I am eating now and not sweating near as much but the scariest symptom lingering is that I have a loss of sensation all over my body. I can barely walk. I’m hoping this is only from not eating the previous 4 days. I can barely feel my teeth. It’s weird.

    223. Vic says:

      I smoke for about 6 years worked a 12 hour job while on it. I I haven’t touched it almost 11 months. I don’t know how I was able to kick the stuff just stopped. But my side effects were sweating in my sleep and headaches seen people take a hit one time and completely become really intoxicated when I would hit a few times and be slightly buzzed. That’s when I realized this drug was a lot like hard drugs. I’ve done meth benzos and coke. Experienced withdraws from only benzos and synthetic. Synthetic is by far the worst out of all them in my opinion. Ive been in the hospital for extreme nausea, heart papulations,and seizures. I have to say after the first 2 months I stopped sweating in my sleep but but my heartrate was really high for about 7 months. I’m just now starting to get my heart rate down to normal. The only thing I’m still experiencing is really bad insomnia. When you quit get you some vitamin supplements because you won’t eat good for awhile . Drink alot of water and stay away from alcohol. I never thought I would be able to quit but look at me now I don’t have one urge to smoke it. Oh switching back to cannabis if possible helps a bit too. For awhile cannabis had no effect on me but it will come back.
