: I am 21 yrs old and in over my head. I am also a full time college student.I have been using
: crank every chance( at least four to five times a week) I get.I cant seem to get to my classes,
: get or hold a job, or fulfill any other responsibility. I have been up now for 13 out of the last 15
: days. Every time I get off crank I sleep for days. Then when this tiredness goes away I still can
: not seem to do what I need to do. In the end I always end up spun out just to meet my
: responsibilities. Does any one know of a way to kick this without rehab or NA. Or is there
: any one else out there in this same place. Cuz right now I feel like I am the only one and
: there for alone
Why don't you go to a NA meeting? Also, I tend to think that rehab is probably what you need. I don't agree with inpatient rehab, I think it is better to deal with life and choose to stop. You have a long road ahead of you and I wish you the best.
p.s the truth is you can stop. You just have to do "whatever" it takes.
