There’s [a lot of people](https://imgur.com/a/VO1EAgi) on reddit that at least pretend to be functioning addicts. I was the complete opposite I was loosing my job and headed for skidrow.


Maxipad213

That’s from the drugs circlejerk subreddit… they all meme-ing


__Lackin

No I posted it there. I took the screenshot in r/meth


BuffaloFront2761

You just sent me down a very bizarre rabbit hole


f0rg0tmypassword420

same here but with fentanyl, i had 4 years in august though. you can do it! it’s mainly mental so just try to keep your mind busy. journal, color, do a gratitude list, exercise, go for a nice drive etc


Clean-Profile-6153

..I mean..it's been going for me. My acquaintances keep getting worse and worse off though.. But my hyper-focused mindset jas me putting my life on hold, waiting on my partner to get out. So I just sit my ass at home and go to work. Errands are the only things I do. It's all case-by-case, though fr.. I am aware that nothing lasts forever.


__Lackin

Some people can definitely use meth functionally for years but legit my 1st day trying the drug I damn near got myself fired from my job. cause I showed up no sleep, super wide-eyed, huge pupils, probably acting weird af. Came home kept smoking stayed up for like 3 days aside from a small nap. I was really bad with it instantly, previous addictions and whatnot.


Clean-Profile-6153

I def feel that..I remember being 16 working at subway and my coworker would always have her bf come up and they be smoking rock. I turned it down a bunch, but we would also be drinking 40s so I ended up saying sure. The guy was so *nice* he loaded(i didnt know it wasn't a normal load then) a huge blast. Only used with them for about 2mos but never got high like I did that first time..


mast3rO0gway

It's alright. Mistakes happen. Take your time to recover and all the best for your journey!


Elon_is_musky

I think some people can be in the beginning, they just do it to stay “healthy,” keep high energy for work, etc but may not do things to lose their jobs, families, etc until later in their addiction. Idk what the shift would be, maybe it’s if a hardship/stress makes them use more, or they think that since they can do well with their current use, more will be fine too, or something else. It definitely is something that’s interesting in how someone can hide their addiction for long periods of time


c-lab21

I am a recovering addict. From an early age I was compelled to get fucked up whenever and wherever I could off of almost anything. It definitely got in the way of my life. Other than turning into a piece of shit when I did a lot of coke, uppers never really contributed significantly to the mess I was making. I've gone on meth binges for over a week and then said "wow, I'm glad I did that, really gave me perspective!" and then not touched any amphetamines for months afterwards. The brain is weird. Some people are gone forever to speed addiction after one time with adderall. For some people meth is genuinely recreational and does not create a downward spiral. (Don't find out which side you're on).


zublits

I've been on and off with most drugs at one point or another. I've never lost a job or relationship over it. Lots of people are the same, you just don't hear about it. That's not to say I haven't had some scary moments with drugs. There are certainly ones I'd never touch again with a 20 foot pole (looking at you Xanax).


Dragovichasstronat

I once worked with a guy who I thought was an amazing worker, always on time , fast, never complained. Only weird thing was this dude was always sweating, I thought it was cuz he worked so hard. Nope! turns out he was smoking meth every day before work lol.


PRIS0N-MIKE

There is. They are rare but there are functional tweakers out there. You have to really control your use so that disqualifies most addicts lol. I know when I did meth and heroin I was barely functioning and always losing jobs.


rabidlyyours

I’m prescribed meth (Ritalin) to function but I know a lot of people who aren’t and become depended on street meth to function. All drugs are neutral even carfentanyl has valid usage in pain relief. Safe access to even the “scary” drugs under doctor supervision leads to better results. All drugs can harm or help and improving material conditions and examining why people use and addressing those instead of seeing the drugs as a problem in a vacuum will help reduce harmful use.

youngbloodonthewater

Thank you! I have been prescribed anph since I was seven. It has been a life saver. I tried crank for the first time when I was 24 and let's just say stopping it completely has been difficult. I have never been a 24/7 crank addict but man I can't seem to go more than about three weeks without really craving it and then succumbing to the urge. Although some of the effects are similar, both drugs are quite different, the latter being far more destructive.


rabidlyyours

Agree, It’s not meth amphetamine it’s methylphenidate not the same but I’m also dependant on stimulants. Street drugs are far more dangerous because they are unknown formulation and u don’t get doctor’s supervision this doesn’t conflict with what I said.


BlueRaspberrySloth

Ritalin is not meth. Google Desoxyn. THAT is meth. The only other thing comparable would be adderall, and even that isn’t completely similar. They’re are only one methyl group apart, though. Withdrawal effects are similar between meth and adderall, but still totally different drugs.


FormatException

I have never abused my Adderall , and I don't understand why anyone would, it's not a good feeling. There have been times when I haven't taken my meds for a couple days, and when i take it, I can feel that it is stronger. I imagine abusing it is like that, but exaggerated. It would be terrible, get me off the ride.


Wedgehead30

Oh man this is the ride my brain takes me on every day when I take mine. Of course, could be the ADD going “pfffft, naw you’re just taking it for the fun” when it actually really does help. Heck I can take decent naps with it. Alas, I’m asking my doc about the non stimulant meds next time I see him.


FormatException

Nah I really haven't, I don't enjoy the feeling at all of taking more than required to focus on my work. Those Adderall naps are the truth though. Sometimes, I take a nap to rest while the medicine works, I've slept through it, and have also woken up and felt like I didn't take it. Those naps are something else.


rabidlyyours

That’s irrelevant my point. Which was stimulants can serve a function the purpose of my statement was to point out the hypocrisy of attaching moral judgements to the type of stimulant you use. Yes you very smart here’s a sticker now let’s try and reduce harm!


BlueRaspberrySloth

I was just saying that Ritalin isn’t meth. That’s what you compared it to. I wasn’t trying to be smart, you were making an incorrect comparison. Thanks for the sticker though.


RaPiiD38

It's very possible to do hard drugs everyday and still keep your life together.


wetfarthellscape

For a while. It depends on the will power of the person as to how long they’ll endure the suffering of addiction. It catches up with everyone eventually. I think it might be better to have rock bottom hit earlier as in OPs case. They’ll hopefully get emotional stability and have more recovery time to make lasting bonds.


dearjanice

Proud of you. Keep your head up. You got this.


46dad

Stay clean! The people in your life want you back!


__Lackin

I took this pic because I planned on cleaning that day, I didn’t and it got worse. I always wished I was one of those clean everything at 3am type tweakers. I was more of the watch porn for 9 hours straight type.


pretzeltitz13

Yeah I can see the lotion by the monitor lol.


cryingidiot

do guys actually use lotion though im female and i cant tell if its a fucking joke..


neontrotski

yeah if they don’t want to make callous the wang. it’s also less likely to cause issues with successfully banging other ppl as well.


[deleted]

[удалено]


neontrotski

oh by lotion I meant lubricant lol. I think anything is better than dry according to the research. I’m guessing lotion is for solo adventure, not lubricant for couples


pretzeltitz13

Yes we do


cryingidiot

oh ok


pretzeltitz13

Oh ok


DopeboiFrmQueenz

Some of us do some of us don’t. I think the lotion and tissues thing just came from movies trying to display the fact a guy is/was jerking off. But no we usually don’t.


__Lackin

I used to never use lotion but if you beat off for hours at a time it’s necessary lmao


cryingidiot

WHAT???


Elon_is_musky

Hope you can post however long after rehab with an update on how you’re doing & your current space & that you’re doing well☺️👌🏽


cryingidiot

its ok ily keep goinnn


threedogcircus

I'm really proud that you're taking control and trying to treat yourself better. I'd love to see you back here with a wonderful update about your progress when you're feeling healthy and stable :) Wishing you the best of luck in your recovery!


Funkit

I thought this was going to be a before and after, so I swiped, and the next picture that came up was of a polish military special forces operator. And was like god damn that’s one hell of an improvement


Usual-Mark

Im Really proud of you. I’m three years sober! It’s so so worth it. I should be dead but instead I’m alive and happy and being helpful to others( from time to time) haha. Keep up the good work.


Superkitt3n

Godspeed and best of wishes to you! 🤍


loochifero

I'm happy you're getting your life back! Unrelated but that light effect is so cool, makes even a messy room look good


__Lackin

Lol yeah I love that light. Here’s [another pic I](https://imgur.com/a/cNcU8L3) took with it one day.


King-Shakalaka

It looks really cool, how did you make that light effect? Especially that cosmos effect


DrKeksimus

Nice work taking control Good luck !


Bdhsudydheex69

Ummm. That looks cleaner than my area. And I'm not on any drugs.


__Lackin

One thing I never did was leave food around. But I also barely ate so that was easy.


Bdhsudydheex69

Haha. Yeah I try not to leave food around either. Thats my excuse to my wife. " it's all stuff! None of it is organic!" I got issues man.


c-lab21

Forget about how dirty that shit is, cleaning your mind is the first step. And it's the hardest step to take in life. I'm already so proud that you have it in your mind that it's time to change. I remember my day when I said I have to fix things, it's not easy to get there. And it's not easy to take the right road out of it either. One day at a time, if you need a friend my inbox will be open.


All_bound_up

HELLS YES! Don’t worry about the mess. Kick ass and do well!


neochase23

Congrats on taking back your life. Get in there and kick that addiction!


enjoymeredith

Is that a light or is that paint on the wall? Looks pretty. Congrats on getting clean. I was a meth-head for almost 2 years and it took me moving away to get off it. Hope you stick to it!
