Feeling “done” with crystal meth?

Done with a high that isn’t a high anymore, but is more like daily maintenance? Done with focusing EVERYTHING IN LIFE around your dealer and getting more ice?

Done having to lie again and again to your family and friends about why you missed the wedding, graduation, funeral, birthday or whatever? Done with tensing up every time a police cruiser drives by? Done with having complete strangers you meet online inside your home just so you can host the party and play?

Done with lying to your family about why you missed Christmas or Thanksgiving? Done with watching the brightness of real life from the sidelines as you get pulled further into meth’s darkness?

Done with getting sicker and sicker as you avoid seeing a doctor because you’re ashamed? And how about done with shame? Are you done?

With the drug itself? With the lifestyle of secrecy? Done with peeking out of windows?

Whomever you are, know this. No one can tell you exactly how a person’s quitting process is supposed to look. But I can tell you what to expect physically — like exhaustion, body aches and so forth — and what to expect psychologically — like depression, hallucinations, waves of anger. With this knowledge, you don’t have to be subject to the whims of withdrawal. You can soar into recovery!

Join me and let’s be done with it together.
