  1. Take it or Tough it out?

    I would give it more time and try natural remedies like exercise, healthy diet, mediation, counseling. Then if around 9-10 months you still feel this way or like you haven't improved then I would try Wellbutrin if any.
  2. Eyesight After Quitting

    I notice my eyes hurt a little bit and are a little more sensitive although they might have been the same way during adderall I just didn't notice cause I was jacked through the roof on 60-100 mg
  3. Will I be ready to quit this time?

    We've all been there and know how you feel. One day you'll have had enough regardless so the sooner the better. I wish you the best.
  4. Using Wellbutrin to help quit

    You're welcome. I agree it is a very lonely, tough recovery..
  5. Using Wellbutrin to help quit

    To be honest the first six months improvement seemed very gradual and hardly noticeable but in the past couple weeks I've felt significantly better. Still seem to have good days and bad days but the good days seem better. Definitely getting my energy back and feeling stronger. Emotions are still out of whack, looking forward to the next few months and reaching one year.
  6. Using Wellbutrin to help quit

    Coming up on 7 months clean. Used Wellbutrin 3-5 didn't really notice much of a difference so I figured I'd stop. Didn't want to be hooked on any meds.
  7. Pretty much hit rock bottom. I knew it was terrible health wise what I was doing for most the time I was doing it but after I lost my girlfriend of 7 years, dropped out and wasted thousands on school, was on the verge of going crazy that I realized I had to stop. It's been five months and still feel pretty shitty. Zero confidence and not much drive to do anything.
  8. Finally Ready To Quit, But Terrified

    Find support or someone to talk to via a counselor, social groups, anything. You don't need to be in a relationship just try to find what you love, as cliche as that sounds. If your depression is that bad already you really do not need to continue using.. Consider therapy and just try your best to connect to people and be healthy.
  9. Finally Ready To Quit, But Terrified

    The sooner you can quit the better because eventually adderall won't be able to save you from the depression and anxiety. When that time comes it'll be a hell of a lot worse than quitting now. I know it's ridiculously hard and tempting but the sooner you quit the better.. after a couple months you should be feeling significantly better. Especially considering your dosage which is honestly, reasonably low. If you keep at it one day you might see yourself taking 100mg+/day and by then you'll be in for a lot more serious ride than now. Anyways, I don't mean to sound disregardful or disrespectful in anyway. You'll be surprised how you'll bounce back if you can resist the temptation of the high.
  10. Just Got Dumped

    Hey cheeri0, I understand how you feel and how tough it is. My girlfriend of 7 years left me two weeks after I quit. It's been four months since then and it hasn't been easy. It's been the hardest longest four months of my life. You can do it though. Just do your best and take care of yourself, it'll all be okay.
  11. Ears ringing

    Anybody's ears still ring after being off for a little while? I don't think there's a solution but jw if any has experience of it and it getting better/going away after so long.
  12. Share Your Post Quit Accomplishments

    I've been off for four months now and I'm undertaking my last year of chemical engineering. I plan to be able to have this as a post adderall accomplishment even though I'm a little intimidated at the moment. Just going to take it day by day and do my best.
  13. On Ughhh Days..

    I believe the power of belief is strong enough to compensate to an extent but to truely believe you have to be able to forget. I can't believe it's all in my head because of science. Which there will always be a physical constraint of the physical world but I think if you forgot all your experience and believe in just yourself and the moment you're in, it would compensate a lot for the side effects and that's why some feel better than others. I don't think anyone has a 100% recovery instantly. Also I think another variable to belief therefore side effects is sensitivy. Some people have dull and relatively weak physical sense, they take a lot more stimuli so they go about seemingly easier than someone who is a lot more physically conscious and sensitive where a little change is intense where that same change might not even register to the other person. Just an opinion/idea/theory. The person that is less sensitive will say they're just stronger and tougher and that the sensitive person is weak but again I think perception and the brains sensitivy varies and that both have strengths and weaknesses. So a person who is not very sensitive and refuses to acknowledge the past and scientific data will have a stronger belief in themselves and that it's just in their head and possibly will experience/notice less side effects. And on the other end a really sensitive person who acknowledges the physical chemistry and has vivid strong sensitive memory that is just realistic as the moment their in will notice/experience the drastic difference in their state making it harder to forget and be in the moment and weaker belief it's in their head Just and idea and a relativity thing. I can't say which is better because I think there's something to be learned in each experience and people are just built different for different purposes. Sorry if this is jumbled or hard to follow
