Days 2 and 3: Confirmed.

 

Tomorrow is my first day at work w/out Adderall - that's when the fun begins.  Though I just flushed my stash, so failure literally is not an option this month.

Getting rid of your stashed pills demonstrates a huge commitment to making your Quit work!

Energy drinks, coffee, or caffeine pills can come in handy and keep you functional at work during the early stages of your Quit.

Wow!  33 days done!  I didn't even notice that 30 days came and went!  Does that mean that I graduate to the 60 day challenge?  I am so fat right now, but I am super happy that I have not caved...conflicted, yes.

The day is young, but I'm gonna count it anyway: Day 8 - confirmed.  Done with the first week, and for some reason I already feel a thousand times better.

Day 6 and going strong. I have taken Adderall off and on since I was 16. I am now 23 going on 24. I have an awesome job, a great family, and a few close friends who I'd do anything for. For the past years, It's been war between a naturally funny, spunky, chunky gal and an evil, narcissistic monster, all because of a pill. I love the way I've felt the past week. Sure, I've been lazier, but I've been more patient and funny like old times. I've also laughed a lot more than I have in years. This is the longest I've gone in years without taking the pill. I'm a television personality, so there's a lot of pressure to be thin, but you know what? Life is so much better without it, so the 10 pounds I'll probably gain from quitting is pale in comparison to the derailment of my life on Adderall. Please, let's support each other and uplift each other as we continue this journey. So happy to have found this site. I joined a gym 2 weeks ago and I've only been a few times. I'm not going to push myself too hard until the cravings subside.

Good work. I expect you are really feeling it now. Just get through the first month.  Netflix, sleep whatever you need to do to get through it you do it.

Chipping away at my Steam backlog ;)

 

Btw, Day 19.  I can't remember ever hitting the fridge so hard in my life.

I abused the stuff pretty hard. So when I quit I was almost in a coma. I slept a lot, thankfully life had given me a timeout and i could just chill for awhile. Sleep is when the brain does repairs .  Watch the sugar is my only advice.  Read the articles on what to expect.

Day number... let's see, let's see... Ah-ha!  Day 26.  This is what happens when you ask a guy on Adderall detox to make a post daily. :P

Day 28.  4 weeks down, 2 days to go.  Never been hungier in my life.  Yet on the plus side, my wife has never been happier.  Take your own meaning to that one ;)
