Hi.

I ended up in a similar situation due to phenylethylamine (PEA; the chocolate amphetamine) abuse, often involving binging and staying up for days on end. It gets better, but it can take a long time, especially without treatment. You may crave stimulants again, especially if it is taking long to recover. I suggest that, if you must take something, you use a less destructive stimulant like methylphenidate (Ritalin) or even cocaine.

Ive read horror stories about the permanent damage from meth and now Im scared my life is over. Day five and still feel depressed and unable to focus. Marginally better than before at best. I dont know what to do. I have no hope :(

I cant focus on anything; I feel mentally numb and fuzzy; Im frustrated and want to scream; Ive been tired for the entire time, sleeping most of the day; I feel somewhat physically ill; and Im breaking out in acne. Is this going to get better? I am angry at myself but cant believe the swing from feeling mentally clear and getting back to the gym and now this, all from six hours of some smoking and a day or so without sleep. I cant ever remember feeling so miserable, ever, and Im scared to death.
