    Wow, I cant believe how long ago it was that I started this post...and unfortunately I'm still fighting my addiction to this terrible drug. I've been on it for 3 years and 1 month now and its horrible to actually type that. For anyone that has recently started taking this poison, do yourself the biggest favor OF YOUR LIFE and quit. Your life will not become better from taking these pills even tho you think it will. The longest i've been off of this drug has been 30 days (last November) and that was the best 30 days of my life. I've not come close to that since November and its so depressing to realize that I've wasted over 3 years of my life not being the best father or husband or friend that I could and needed to be. That time is gone and I will never get it back! and for what?! to be more productive?!?! It's such BS! and here I am laying in bed trying to go to sleep and I of course can't. I would like to say I'm done for good but I've said that every day for the last 2 years and I'm still on the crap! My best friend has been off of it since September of 2015 and I don't understand why I don't have the willpower to do the same thing...sorry everyone, just venting. Fortunately I am looking forward to a long weekend with the family and I'm ready to start my post adderall life during that time. Thank you to all those that post on here and give encouragement to those of us that are still in the dark days of our addiction.
  2. Advice please!

    Best advice is to quit now because its only gonna get worse, to the point where you won't even be able to function at work while on it. I've been on this drug for almost 3 years now and realized I needed to quit it back in January of '15, yet I always find some reason to keep taking it. I have quit for 2-3 weeks at a time over the past 2 years and the longest was a whole 30 days. I feel so amazing once I get past day 5 and I always say I'm done...but then I take it again. I know what your going through with the small business owned by family/friends. It seems like it can make it more difficult because in small businesses more roles and responsibilities can be placed on people and positions and family/friends can be quick to ask questions about mood changes/productivity issues. I'm 28 with a wife and young son, flush the damn things now because you will feel a huge sense of relief and deal with the consequences...so what you won't be as productive for a week or two! It will get better!!! Just read the stories on this website, they are all trying to help you!!! In the end it all comes down to YOU wanting to be done with this crap....best of luck.

    Just letting everyone know that I'm still doing good. Finishing up my 22nd day of being clean. Luckily I've been EXTREMELY busy at work and to be honest if I was still on meds I would've probably over did it and end up in the hospital or something, due to the excessive heat. Keeping a busy schedule normally reduces the amount of time I'm able to think about meds...in the past that wasn't always the case. As far as my recovery, the past 3 weeks have not been as horrible as they could be but I plan on giving a more thorough rundown of everything in the next few weeks. I still need to post my story as well but 22 days is a new record for me which means everyday from here on out is, so YAY!!! lol

    Finishing up day 12, for the "god only knows" time. I've reached that point where quitting is the only option for me because its what I have to do and want to do. I have been a frequent guest of this site since January of 2015 and a member since February of 2016 and finally feel comfortable enough to post something. If I were still on meds I would stay up and type my story into the early morning hours but I thankfully am not and will be turning in for the night. lol. I plan to add my story in the next few days and I hope it will aid others in seeking recovery from these medications. Thanks!!!
