    19 Months Free From Crystal Meth

      I tried to get help from the police but they've always just told me to move. Ever since then, I've been suffering with tingling and burning skin sensations whenever I'm home. The hairs on my body get singed and burnt and I break out into blisters that never heal. I am...

    Recurring Nightmares

    I quit using meth..... too many times to count. No matter how bad it was the time before it's only a matter of time before I slip. I started using when I was 16, used hardcore for 3 months then just quit, for a boyfriend.  It took me a little longer than it took him to...

    Rockin The Mic

    I'll admit that I miss it very much. I just love the way that I hated food and I could easily go a week with nothing but water. I remember the first time I tried it, I was a sophomore in high school. I use to talk to some homeless people cause they were nice and I asked him where...

    It has been almost 1 full year clean from the worst time in my life.  What a difference it has made.  I was lucky enough to quit before losing everything but it will take a long time to recover that is for sure.  I still own my home, car and have my kids, I was...

    A Few Years Ago

    I used to do it nearly every day. Then, one day I quit. Just like that. I moved away from it, never saw it again. I never had any withdrawals that I could tell. I'm so glad I stopped. I was always oily-faced and my eyes would get super red. I was paranoid and I had weird hours. I...
