I can't throw the ketamine away. I don't think I'll buy more though. It's just there. I snort a very low dose of it once or twice a week.

I'm just really sick of drugs. All they did was waste my time and make me fear death more. At one point, they made me lose my self respect.

But psychedelic.. ketamine is.. dissociative.. I'll be honest, If I'm offered a chillax time on the couch in the living room with friends to do shrooms together, I would happily accept. But what that could do to my mental health I don't know..

I believe in you tweaky.

Itís taken me many years to move away from using drugs. In the end I had to accept that although I enjoyed the experiences they had to offer that it just wasnít conducive to my mental health.

I did try to buy some Cocaine last year but my dealer screwed me over and disappeared with my money. Probably for the best.

It can be hard adjusting to life without drugs. It can seem boring or unfulfilling but there are other normal human experiences out there that can be just as good.

I think itís also good you can recognise the negative impact drugs can have. Took me a long time to realise that. They really can be self destructive even if you arenít addicted.

Iím craving a life that I am not consumed by thinking about alcohol or opioid medication or weed.

I had kidney stones and the doctor sent me home with morphine. I didnít abuse it I also didnít like the way it made me feel. It did take away the pain but made me start to go loopy after awhile. So I stopped taking it. Then on Sunday I fell in my bathroom onto my right shoulder/arm/ elbow. I gave myself a soft tissue injury it hurts like a b itch. They gave me hydromorphine when I was leaving over kill anyone? I have taken like one and i didnít like the way it made me feel. I used to take it all the time back in the day before opioid crisis was a big deal. I was prescribed it for pain I never over abused it like I did other things. I also wouldnít drink when I took a pill of it, i was careful. A careful alcoholic is there such a thing?

I am around sorts of drugs all the time everyday even cigarettes and alcohol. But I choose not to give in. You can too tweaky.

Greentires4me,


Well done on not abusing the pain meds. I probably wouldn't be able to stop myself.



I too wish that I could stop thinking about alcohol completely. It's not nearly as bad now, as it was a couple of months ago. But yesterday, I had a really strong craving that it took me a couple of hours to work through.
