Successfully tapered down, last pill 24 hrs ago

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone! I have been reading all of your posts over the past 9 months and finally decided I should share my story. Looking back I have definitely dragged out this process for longer than I thought I would but I was able to listen to my body and slowly taper down from 60 mg a day. I decided that this period of social distancing was the perfect time finally go cold turkey. I am 33 and have been taking 60-90 mg/day since 2006. I run my own accounting firm and was terrified my business would spiral out of control w/o it. But after a year of working hard to become a better person/boss/wife/daughter, I realized adderall was hindering my growth and preventing me from learning who I really was. There have been some REALLY hard months, brain fog was out of control Sept and October. But I managed (for the most part) to stick to my prescribed dosing and not freak out. I started working out 4x per week, super early, and that was literally the game changer. The days I don’t workout are so much harder (today being one of them). I also stopped drinking b/c that made the mornings so much harder. I have gained weight, but I’m ok with it, learning to love myself even more and I know it won’t last forever. I know this next month will be difficult, but I am hoping I have eased some of the burden by tapering down. Thank for all for your stories and advice, they have helped make this possible.

@Letsdothis!

that's awesome! congrats on your last pill. i especially love that you identified better "person" as one of your goals. it's great that you have employees and family to hold you accountable but ultimately you need to do this for yourself as well.

gl and keep us updated on your progress (:

Welcome to the forum and congrats on finally quitting.  Since you have been preparing for this moment for the last nine months, I have no doubt you will succeed especially if you stick with your plan, the workouts, and not drinking.
