Amphetamine abuse and addiction overdose

by shell


I have been abusing speed for a long time. Originally it was used occasionally for parties but over the years and 3 kids college work and housework I live off it day to day now.

I can get so much done, and for the last couple months and my relationship breakdown I can’t stop taking it. It was one of the many factors why we splIt up, and I haven’t slept really at all, the odd hour or two a night.

I need help I’ve got no family around me or friends to help me or that I can talk to or tell, yet if I don’t keep doing it I cant keep on top of everything.

Tonight I thought I was having a heart attack which then became a panic attack. I tell myself now I have give up, won’t touch it again as I was so scared and still am…..yet come midday I will feel the need to take so I can get on with the rest of the day.

What do I do I am desperate for help in some form please!

Get An Exam

Dear Shell,

The side effects of amphetamine are well documented and your experience is just one of many ill effects the drug produces. You need to get some help.

First of all, go to a doctor and get an assessment. Tell the doctor the truth and tell him/her what you are taking. You need a treatment plan that will allow you to rid yourself of the drug, without suffering adverse withdrawal.

You already know you have a problem, so take the first step and get a physical examination and allow the doctor to help you get into treatment. Also, find a local support group, like AA, or a faith-based organization and let people give you the support you need to get through this.

You can do it.

Amphetamine abuse…

Dear Shell,

I agree with Ned’s comments.

To add to what he said, I’d like to encourage you to go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in your area. There you’ll meet others with the same or similar problems as yourself. Often they can help you find the right kind of help.

I am a recovering alcoholic and I have not drank for 27 years. When I first wanted to quit the first thing I did was go to my medical doctor and he helped me to get started. Also, I went to AA meetings and saw a drug and alcohol counselor. They all helped me. Also, I know that God helped me when I turned to him.

Sometimes I told myself that I just had to had alcohol. However, I became a mother and I knew I couldn’t be a good one if I was drinking every day as I was. I had good incentive to quit and that helped. Maybe you could find something healthy that you could concentrate on that would help you to quit. The hardest part for me was to accept that I could never have alcohol again. After that I just had to get support and help.

Good luck and I’ll say a prayer for you.-Lynette

Speed is not worth losing you friends over

by: Bazzaroo

I’ve been putting speed down my throat on and off for 15 16 years. Over the last 5 6 years I’ve been doing it more or less everyday. Sometimes going 2 or 3 days with out touching it. Because I’m sleeping mainly.

I do work full time to fund my habit and the rest of my life I must add. Don’t know how I haven’t got sacked with poor attendance, and bad time keeping, being angry at the wrong person.

Let’s be honest for a second. Speed is the best drug around for the way you feel when you’re on it but as a result it’s the worst for wanting to punch you best friend in the face or throwing yourself off a bridge… Like I did.

Obviously not the bridge thing. But it’s crossed my mind 1000 times over. The punching my best mate in the face because he took my last slice of bread. I’ve not seen or spoken to him in nearly 3 years, I can’t blame him I attacted him for no reason.

The best advice i have ever heard, read, or could give about amphetamines is DO NOT TOUCH SPEED. It will get you in the end one way or another.

It did the opposite

I have been using Speed for about 12 weeks and for the economy of it, I use it intravenously. Mixed with about 70 of water then filtered. But the strangest thing happened. The first time I took it was orally and I took over a gram in under 4 hours…Nothing…Everyone else was bouncing. I was awake, but that’s it.

I also work very long hours with shifts running into 40 hours plus on occasion (my choice as I work for me) so for me, the only thing I get out of speed is, to stay awake.

I have built a tolerance to it now and have to inject up to 3/4 of a gram at a time to get any benefit from it. I have put 1.1 grams in a few times too just to try and get a bit longer from it. I normally get about 4 hours.

I don’t get hyper or any of the other side effects. Not violent or moody in fact, it has calmed me down a lot.

It is now suggested that I may be A.D.D. and that would explain a whole lot about my younger days.
I urge you to go and see someone and even try a Hypnotherapist. I have had great success with a couple.

Good luck.
