Cunning Little Pill

3 posts in this topic

This chemical has been in charge of me since I was diagnosed with ADD as a kid. It was therapeutic until college, where I accidentally took two and got my first high. Things fell apart rapidly, and my reality must be pretty distorted since I don’t hate the drug.

So I’m choosing to quit even though I don’t feel like it. I’ve been waiting for that feeling to come, but I can feel my body shutting down. 

Any success stories of quitting without hitting “rock bottom”?

but you still must have a reason for quitting? maybe you don't believe it's good enough, but something brings you here.

a big part of recovery is faith. some people place that faith in a higher power, but that's not for everyone. for me, the faith was simply believing that my life will be better than it was. it may not feel like it at first, even for a while, but i placed my faith in all the recovery stories here and just kept believing.

and then it eventually happened (:

If you can feel your body shutting down then now would be a great time to quit. I wish I quit back then, I pretty much kept going until it just stopped working. Month after month same BS, kept thinking it would be different. Not a good place to be. If you quit now the sooner you will be recovered. Maybe you don’t need a good reason. Maybe your future self just wants you off it :-)
