I used Meth for a few years, but never on a daily basis. I just partied with it. I would like to say that it is the most evil thing to hit this country...maybe ever. Terrible.

.....used it back in 04-06. let me just say, is the hardest thing to overcome....The best advise I could ever give you, confide in God!, pray, pray, pray!! I lost my family and love ones (relationships) because of my addiiction....lost my now fiancee to this as well...."YOU" have to be the one to say" no more". Only the man in the mirror (you) can pick yourself from your boot straps.... I was hospitalized for about a week (they pumped my stomach...ouch ) then was transferred over to a rehab center that made me realize the wrong doing I was causing myself and others that truely cared for me...Since then, I never looked back and my relationship with GOD/fiancee has gone from good to GREAT

Remember, through GOD all things are possible.

Yep I used meth for about 8 years, I have been clean for 2 years and couldn't be happier....I am so so thankful for everyday that I am clean, I feel so sorry for the people who are still using because nothing good will come out of it, it causes nothing but heart ache & pain.....

Default go fast

i did meth for 10 yrs or so. the only time i was clean is when i was behind the wall. and that didnt always stop me either.
i know this may sound crazy to some of you, or most of you. i used to be awake "litterally" for weeks at a time, or more. yes i got that bad. i got to where a 1/4 gram was not enough. yes in one shot!
i was afraid to sleep because thats when you got ripped off or busted (lol). so i was always (never) stopped hustling dope. i was a tweaking fool. but i loved it. the first time i did it i litterally felt like superman. i was smart, fast , strong and could do anything. tear stuff apart and put it back together. fix cars, and normally i knew nothing about cars.
after a few months. i couldnt even tie my shoes. tear something apart and never get it back together. i started ruining cars at this point. trippin on liscence plates and 76 balls on car attenas. them were the cops.
all i wanted was sex sex sex and more sex. got to wear i was so stupid i couldnt even shoot myself up anymore. then i was 459 ing everyplace i could. stealing cars and you name it. i have a sister has been using for over 20 yrs and i swear to you in my eyes she is now mentally retarted.
no pun intended.
i left california 18 yrs ago just to get away from the meth and i have not touched it since. and other then still being "partially institutionalized" i am normal. but it took me 4 yrs before i quit wanting to slam dope !
but clean 18 yrs now.
for you new users, if you gotta move to mars to get away from meth, nows the time. very addicting, and will destroy your life and will hurt everyone who loves you.

Meth addiction took my husband away from me and caused him to make choices that will affect our family for the rest of our lives... I have tried it a few times, and thankfully I was strong enough not to let it suck me in.. It is the worst drug I have ever seen and I can see how easily people can get sucked in... I saw the love of my life slip away from me in the matter of months when he got back on it... Its the devil.. I hate it more then anything...

Well congratulations to everyone who has been able to escape the grip of Meth. I personally have not done it but i have seen what it does to peoples lives. It destroys freindships, families, your mind, you body. IT JUST PLAIN DESTROYS EVERYTHING!!! So Thank you to all you people out there who have been strong enough to say no to the drug,and thank you to all of you who have quit using! And to those who are still using-- Keep in mind how much it hurts your loved ones and try to be strong and get some support!!!! XOXOXOX

Meth is the worst drug there is.. I myslf hve NEVER used it but hve been around it.. U can say I.ve always been the scary type cuz i.ve nvr dne drugs.. Not evn weed.. I think of the consequences it will bring me.. 3 of my bros r dwn that path.. It hurts knowing the kind of life they choose.. N nd out of prison, ruthless nd dnt care if they go bak.. Although we r not blood, it still hurts.. I saw thm grow the last 10 yrs n2 wat they r now.. U try 2 tlk nd reason wit thm nd all they tlk about is getting high.. U see thm all paranoid, nervous, shaking, seeing things that r not there.. Nd it just brks my heart.. Evrytime u get a call its scary think smeting might had happen 2 thm.. My bff was hookd also.. I thnk the Lord she was able 2 get rid of her addiction.. So far she has been clean a lil ovr a yr, but she standing strong for her nd her family.. I pray that any1 that has this addiction, can find the will 2 stop.. It dnt only hurt thm, also evry1 around that loves thm!! ='( The Lord can heal ANYTING! Just leave it n his hands nd Him start the healing!!! God bless evry1..

You can do this being clean and sober is such an awesome gift I gave myself. I used meth/crank for 28 years. The reason my husband is in prison is because of using meth. I gave birth to our son 9 months ago, and the first 2 months of my pregnancy I shot speed. The entire pregnancy I was a nervous wreck wondering if my son would be damaged from my using. I have gone to 21 rehab programs sometimes stopping for a short time, but mostly using even more when I got out. It's not easy getting clean, AA program has helped me. I also have hep C from shooting dope. The reason I want to stay clean is for my self, my son and my grandson. Each day I ask God to help me stay clean another day, and it has worked. Never give up trying, you are stronger than you think. Best of luck!!

God Bless,

Default Drug addict

Desire
wanting and needing it everyday
Rage
overtakes me when the high goes away
Ugliness
so horrible I get numb inside
Guilt
knowing that I have lost my pride


Ashamed
of the constant cravings I get
Desperate
looking around for one more hit
Dishonest
telling more lies all for dope
Irresponsible
getting high in order to cope
Controlling
so intense that sometimes I go insane
Temptations
when I sleep, I hear dope calling my name

I used to use meth when I was 18, 19, and 20. At the time my bf, mom, moms husband, dad, and dads girlfriend all use to get high with me. Times were as "good" as they could get however that was the first time i have ever experienced dv due to the man i was with and the drugs affect not that was ok but meth is bad and when you "come down" you feel so much rage and hurt and you experience emotions so much more intense then normal (at least this was how it was for me). One day I "woke" up and decided i was done with meth, that i didnt need any man hitting me and I didnt want to end up like my parents. It has been 6 years now that I have been clean, I dont have any urge to go and get high because i know that it would ruin my life and Ive worked so hard to get where i am at. My mom and my moms husband have been clean for 4 yrs which is awesome since i am around them a lot. My father is still doing what he does but i dont see him that much but when i do i know what to expect. As far as the guy i was with at that time, i let him go and have stayed clear of him since.. I dont regret my decisions back then because those experiences have taught me so much and i have learned from that.

Congratulations Scooters wifey !!! Wow! I understand that so many struggle with the meth addiction - as badly as they may want the sobriety it's a hard drug to shake!

You are truly an inspiration of hope! Thanks you!

Congrats and love to those who survived a meth addiction. I have never tried it or would even know where to get it, but as the parent, I pray no one in my life is ever effected by it.

I used meth for a little over a year. I had to move out of state and start over to stop using. I stayed away for 7 years, and now I'm back in the state, but 10 years later, I am still meth free. You can do it, it gets easier!
Stay away from your old friends, anyone you know that uses or anyone that knows anyone that uses. The less temptations the better!
Good luck and great job so far!

I've tried a lot of drugs (just once each for most of them) but I never tried meth and probably never will. Same goes for crack. I'm in my early twenties, but I feel way too old for any of that crap now!

I agree, everyone handles it differently. I know a lot about this drug because I was a Meth user for 12 years. Used it everyday. It's not something I'm proud of, but I did it and can't take it back. I was what you would call the "productive" user. I still went to work, and did all the things people who don't use do. I could tell you some stories that you would never believe about the things I have seen, and the people I have met. Crazy! I have been clean now going on 3 years and it is a fight I will have to live with everyday for the rest of my life. As with any addict. The reason you don't feel the way you used to is because Meth releases Dopamine that your brain already has. That's why when you do it it makes you feel so good. If you are a long time user after a while your brain will stop producing the Dopamine because the drug is doing it for it. So after you stop using your brain is no longer releasing it as it should. For someone like myself, it could take up to seven years for my brain to start releasing Dopamine again. And possibly never. So I now take a drug that has Dopamine in it to replace it. And for some like your boyfriend, who went off the deep end, I know all to well. My man was the same. It sucked. There was no telling him differently once he got something in his head. A losing battle for sure. You will feel better I promise. You abused your body by poisoning it and now it needs time to heal. I hope this helps. Hang in there, and yes stay away from it! God Bless.

I smoked it back before I went in to highschool (Ridiculous right??) luckily I was able to get out of that scene in less than a year. I didn't even realize the severity of it while I was doing it. I have never done it since and it has been 9 years. If I ever saw a 14 year old girl twirling a pipe I'd punch her in the face.
