My adderall free birthdate is 11/12/2010. It took me a total of 5 attempts in 2 years to get off adderall. It was extremely difficult to part ways with this drug for the first few years, but I don't think about it anymore. I am emotionally stable today and doing awesome.
If you ever need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to message me. I'd love to hear from you. It really helps me to help others. There is nothing more rewarding!
And to anyone out there who doesn't think they can get off adderall....BELIEVE me when I tell you....IF I CAN DO IT...YOU CAN TOO!!
P.S. If you want to read more about my story.....I'm Elizabeth from the Self Magazine article below.
P.P.S My replacement addiction for adderall has been racing for the past 5 years. Not sure if I will do so many races this year as I feel I'm ready to tackle some new interests, but for me racing has been an integral part of my recovery. They've kept me motivated, excited, feeling amazing, energetic, has been a great social outlet meeting others to train, on track with a healthy diet, and something I know I won't do if I relapse because I'll feel like crap and be hungover. This list reminds me that I am WAY STRONGER and more awesome without that poison!!
