I am addicted to Adderall. I am a drug addict & 26-year old male who is hopelessly addicted to our little round, or football- shaped, 30mg orange friends. AND LOVIN' IT!!!!
Now wait just a minute before you criticize.....
While on Adderall (of which I've been prescribed for the past 4-5 years), I have had no desire whatsoever to delve into my past vices (marijuana, heroin, prescription painkillers, to name a few). I FEEL TOO GOOD, and don't want to ruin that by going back there!
You're probably thinking, "Is this guy f*cking serious? What kind of irrationalization is that? Replacing one drug for another? What a nutcase!!".
Well my dextro-amph-combo-addicted friends and Addy Babies alike, that would be an incorrect assumption, and I'll tell you why: I feel that if a drug has more positive than negative effects in the user's life (which, obviously, is the case with me and Adderall), then there is nothing at all wrong with taking it. Keep in mind, however, that drugs effect everyone in different ways. Case in point: I have numerous friends who take Addy (let's call them my "Addy Family"), of which very few I (among many other experienced, credible sources) feel should actually be prescribed it. I know Adderall like the back of my hand. I have seen more than a few people lose control and go way too far when abusing, or even simply taking as prescribed, Adderall.
Perhaps I am insane. Perhaps it's just my ADHD speaking. Perhaps my words are as illogical as bringing a roasted pig to an Islamic picnic. But then again, perhaps not!
