  1. I Don't Know If I Can Quit?

    Thank you LuckyDucky for your kind words, I really do want to give up Adderall, but throughout my years at high school, I felt horrible. I felt so down. No one would listen to me. Everyone would make fun of me and neglect me. I felt so alone and helpless. I feel like an absolute failure. The Adderall allowed me to escape my problems. It allowed me to feel like I was worth something. It let me feel like I wasn't a total loser for once. I really want to be off of it. I really do. But I don't think I'm strong enough to do it. I have a therapist, but I have trouble sharing my problems with other people even my own family.
  2. Hello. I am a 20 year old male and I don't know what to do in regards to quiting Adderall. So I don't know if I can quit the Adderall because I have tried to get off of it a number of times. But whenever I'm off of it, I don't feel in control of my anxiety. I also feel like without it, I am worthless. I started taking it because I was going through so much stress back in high school. I was barely passing my classes, I was rejected by the girl of my dreams, and I was developing social anxiety so bad that I couldn't sit in the same room as my classmates or even go to a building that had people in it. All of this made me begin to feel insecure about my ability to function and my worth as a person. Now I have almost no confidence in my ability to succeed at anything. I feel very insecure around people and rarely go out with friends, so my social support network is very limited. I really want to go back to how I was before I took Adderall. But I feel like who I am without the Adderall isn't good enough to obtain friends, a love interest, succeed in school or my future career. Has anyone else been in my shoes? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
