  1. Almost 11 Months!

    (I just posted something similar under another topic, but it seemed relevant here too). I quit Adderall in 2015 and I never would have been able to do it without this site. After reading posts from others for a few months and realizing that that I needed to quit before I lost everything (i know I was soooooo close), I was able to flush my last half bottle down the toilet and haven’t touched it since. I don’t think I participated in the forums of this site when I was going through the quitting process, but I read posts daily and kept notes of things people said that I thought would motivate me through the process and it really helped. No lies, it was NOT easy at the time and the withdrawal totally f**king sucked (turns out, recreating natural dopamine once it is suctioned out of you from Adderall is not a quick process), but once I got through it, it was 1000% worth it. I could have written most of these posts. I was about as as low as I could go before losing everything, but I fought my way back out. I’m honestly not even sure why I sought out this site again tonight; I think it’s the first time I’ve logged in about 3 years. I still remember that first pill and how it made me feel, but knowing what I know now, it won’t happen again. I normally am not one to post on forums, but for some reason felt the pull to share tonight-maybe it’ll help even one person know that they can get through it and be be better on the other side as well
  2. I did. I was that mom and I remember feeling EXACTLY like you. Once I came to terms with the fact that I had a problem and I was trying to figure out what to do about it....I found this site about 5 years ago and it helped me so much... so much that I was able to flush my last half bottle down the toilet and haven’t touched it since.
