    • I wonder what is your intention of asking?

      First, who will answer if they do.
      Second, if they do answer, then what?

      You have triggered my thinking now.

    • Can you really hide an addition to METH? Someone knows and worst you know it, can't lie to yourself.

    • Thanks 3sa: if that is the question.  

      Yes, I can tell a meth user.  Their look, their speech, their eyes, their thinking.  Spot like miles away.

    • Ok I misunderstood the question....Did not know the ANON person was actually asking for help.

      I did not read that into that question.  In that case, if are addicted immediatly seek professional help, who cares who finds out...do it and do it now.

      I’ll be praying for you...

      I’m sorry if I offended you today has not been my best day commenting.

    • No I am not addicted to Meth...I have used and abused drugs in the past and am not proud of it...that is a part of my past that I plan on keeping there...
      If you are hinting that you or a friend may have an addiction...please be smart and seek help...and remember you have plenty of support here...

    • Yes I am still here. I never in my life used drugs until four years ago. Somebody gave it to me just to loose some weight. Now I am so addicted and can’t function without it. Most people who know me would never guess that I would do something like this. At this point I do not look like I am addicted to drugs and I maintain a pretty good front.

      I am miserable and think about ending my life every single day. I was just wanting to know if there were any other mothers out there like me.

    • Anon, I know you are miserable. And probably scared to death! But please, the path you are on is much more frightening and much more risky that “coming clean“. You will need help. What can we do to help you get the help you need?

    • Anon, I was once addicted to meth. As ashamed as I was then is just how much I’m not ashamed to speak out it now.
      Please get yourself some help. I turned to my Mother because I knew she would jerk me back to reality. You may not want to take that avenue, but there are many places for you to turn.
      You need to seek professional guidance to rid you body of the poison that has been ingested. It takes times and lots of patience, but you can do it. I know you can.
      If you need to talk, I am totally here for you. Please feel free to Pm me if you would like some kind of information.

    • anon, if you privately want to talk, pm me. I will not give your name out.
      I used meth many years ago to keep going. I was working and going to college. I used for about a year.
      For me it was not an addiction, it got me through and i knew i needed to stop. So i did.

      My hubby on the other hand used for a long time. I will not go into all the hell it caused us, but we did make it through. A arrest turned out to be a good thing and he got help and now as stated above he is clean and sober.

      So, if you need to talk to someone who has used it and has lived with it, pm me anytime!
      Blessings

    • (LC) i am so proud of you!!
      bfly, congrats to your brother!!

      Not all addicts get sores or look like hell. My hubz was a ‘working’ addict. Why i went through it all alone as no one could tell, and i did not want anyone knowing. The only sign was his weight loss. that’s it!

      anon, you have reached out by this question. There are NA and AA meetings all over. It is anonymous and if you are ready for help, they will help you.

      You have to want it more than anything. For you and no one else.

      My hubz tried to quit many times for the family, it does not work that way. You have to do it for you, then all else will fall into place.

      Again, if you need, PM me anytime!

    • To the lady who said she was addicted to meth also, How did you get off of it? How long did it take for you to feel normal again. Did you loose your natural drive to get up everyday and function like a normal person?

      I want to get off this drug so bad and would give anything to be and feel normal again. I am afraid of my teen age children and my ex husband finding out. Not to mention all of the other people in my life who would be tatally shocked to know this about me. I have been in a relationship to a great man for 12 years and even he does not know about this.

      I am so afraid and there are days usually the ones when I have nothing and can’t get anything that I contimplate taking my life because it seems like a logical way out of my situation. I am so ashamed because deep inside, I am not this person, yet I am. Today is not a good day.

    • Anon, I am so sorry, I didn’t see your question to me until now.
      I was able to fight that demon with the help of my mother. It took me a long time to feel normal again. I was in the bed for 2 weeks straight and I still didn’t feel normal for a long long time.
      That is why it is so important for you to seek professional help. They can give you what you need to battle the withdrawals in a way that won't keep you in the middle of here and hell.  

      You really have to want to get well anon, this drug takes over and consumes your whole being. Please please, if you are ready....please reach out. You can do out patient therapy or you can go to a place that will let you stay for awhile to get better.
      If you would like for me to help you find the right place for you, please pm me and I will contact facilities in your area that can give you exaclty what you need. No one has to know but you. Just because you decide to get clean doesn’t mean that everyone will know that you have this going on in your life at this time.
      Reach out, I am here!
      Hugs and prayers to you, my friend
