Have you regained your happiness and/or cognition after these years? Are you still feeling and mental or physiological effects?
If I did crystal methamphetamine -- and I don't think I did -- it was only this one time. Would that be enough, do you think, to trigger cell death?
> I did crystal meth for many years, in large doses and pretty much on a daily basis. I was heading straight towards death.....knew it, but just needed the speediness to live. Which, of course, was going to kill me within another year, I figured.
> Went cold-turkey when the kids and I left and moved to a place where no one even knew what crystal meth was! Lol. Let me tell you, it took ONE YEAR to withdraw from it. One year!!! It was horrible. And the only reason I didn't go back was simply because it wasn't available in this part of the world. It was definately a roller-coaster ride, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I really feel for you as you now begin your withdrawal.
> I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this, but I've found that Neurontin helps to curb the desire to want to use something. It has very mild anti-anxiety properties. I take 3200 mg daily, and it just takes away that "need" for something else.
> What do others thing about Neurontin and crystal meth or cocaine withdrawal?
