The Millionaire Loses It All to ADDERALL

23 posts in this topic

T'was 1997 when on my way to take the SAT test I was offered a 10mg. I killed the test, I thought I scored a 1600: yea right.

On to college and started buying them to take tests, make music and change my image.

Graduated college and rarely took any until 2009. I was depressed about my complexion and social anxiety. My parents recommended i change my life and see a psychiatrist for anti depression medication. So i began on citalopram. Within one month i was a monster, feeling no apprehension and doing great. Up to 2009 i had built a business into a 10 million dollar a year income. My psychiatrist then recommendes vyvanse to which i responded, why? Are you sure I asked? How do you know this is going to help me wgen I'm already doing great and feeling better about myself? "Because i try it on your brother," he responded as we laughed in rapport.

Vyvanse turned to adderall after a year and adderall changed my entire lifestyle. Late nights, ego fueled arrogance, complete lack of risk aversion, social media suicide, lack of care for my business.

This all led to now: 6 years lost in a flash, no business, viciously cyclical life of the same mistakes over and over again, the poster boy for rags to riches to rags, cigarettes, alcohol at night : self destruction.

I am now mid career, the consensus most talented individual who simply needs to do it. QUIT AND REGAIN MYSELF, MY FAMILY, MY PASSION AND MY GENIUS.

Please reach out to me as I embark on life after adderall.

P.S. whats the constipation cure? The only benefit adderall has given me in the end is a clean intestinal tract!

Sorry to hear about what adderall has taken from you.

 

Did you quit?  Do you want to quit?  Are you planning to quit?  Tell us more information so we can help!

 

As for constipation cure.... I think more information is needed.  If it's really bad see a doctor of course.

 

Otherwise lots of fruit (and all the vitamins we tend to avoid when on Adderall) is always good under any circumstance.

I want to quit and have for the most part over the last 45 days. Was going on 15 days this past wednesday when someone offered me one and like an idiot i took it. Ended up refilling my scrip and doing it to myself again. I need to just flush it down the toilet and get back on point.

That's the spirit!  Welcome to the forum.  Always keep looking forward and don't beat yourself up for the past too much.  Just learn and move on.  It wasn't the real you!

hi,

please don't beat up on yourself. I would've taken it too if it was offered to me.

As far as constipation, I believe its mainly due to the fact that when on Adderall, most people ( I know I did for sure) drink tons of water/liquids. Once I quit I didn't feel like I needed to drink as much since I was no longer constantly thirsty, so naturally elimination process slows down.

Hope it helps somewhat.

I am thinking of you

Constipatedquitter,

 

Ha ha. That name is funny.  Oh, how I forgot about that problem back when i first quit. I remember I went on 30 day kick of eating pure fiber.  I thought I was seriously damaged for life.  I remember eating black beans, oatmeal, bananas, apples, and lots of vegetables and water.  That did it for me alright!  lol  No seriously, I even went to a specialist.  I thought I was doomed after I quit. 

 

Anyhow, I am sorry to hear about your business.  The good news is that you accomplished all of that before ever taking adderall so that must give you lots of confidence to know you can do it again without adderall.  In your case, it's almost like adderall is equivalent to heroin or crack.  It did nothing, but destroy everything good you had going so it will hopefully make it that much easier to quit.  :)

 

Welcome to the community.  Glad you are here!

Welcome to the board. Read everything you can and learn how Adderall tricks your mind.  I had serious intestinal issues when I first quit adderall and also when I quit smoking.  Eat right and it should take care of itself.

Cigarettes tossed, wine tossed, fiber, iron, herbal detox, monitored caloric intake are in full effect, gallon of h20 in hand. I just flicked off the trash can.

Over and out,

CQ

Well at least you are in good spirits ðŸ˜

That's awesome

Sorry to hear your struggles .. This drug is a killer for sure the real kicker is , as I'm finding out , it makes you believe that your delusional self is real.. I was doing some deep thinking last night and suddenly thought " what if I'm not really as awesome as I think I am" ha ha wth?! Reality setting in I guess ... I'm not really an invincible super hero with the secret ability to save the planet, like adderall made me feel

Awesomeness is all relative.  The Adderall awesome is what is false...you are awesome without it.  I will always be awesome, even if I am super lazy some days.  It is okay to be a slug and recover. 

 

WELCOME!!

Like the great Muhammed Ali said,

 

                                     "If your mind thinks it, and your heart believes it; then you can achieve it"

 

 

             At least I think that is how the quote goes. I guess I've always thought that I was the greatest at everything I did, but don't we all? What I saw with the Adderall use was, I would project those thoughts out into the world and it would define peoples image of me. I don't never wanted to be like that, I just wanted to be humble. But, the Adderall took my ability to be humble. I think its always key to believe in yourself, just make sure you keep all your own arrogant, self-confident, egotistic thoughts to yourself. The ego can be a powerful tool, but also your worst enemy.

OOPS!  Well, my ego keeps me from wanting to jump off of a bridge some days, so I will keep it. ;)

Staying straight, it's amazing how many opportunities there are to fall off. It almost gives me more energy knowing i'm taking care of what i want out of life, not what everyone else wants. If we listen to others and do as they wish, we will be the pawn forever.
