: : : : Someone that I know is addicted to GHB, well serveral people that I know are to be exact and they are trying to say that it is not addictive.
: : : : I have witnessed this on serveral occasions that this person tries to quite taking this substance. They totally loose all touch with reality.
: : : : Being that when they quit taking ghb it immediatley allows the stored up dopamine to flood the brain. And when in fact they are taking the ghb it blocks the dopamine release.
: : : : Is anyone else out there having this problem.
: : : : If so could you please respond ASAP..
: : : : They are trying to treat this stuff just like they do Alcholism. I believe that to be the wrong way to go about it.
I too am addicted to GHB as are several of my friends. We are all looking for a way to come off of this in a "humane" sort of fashion. I have read several articles that talk aout tapering off you doses (eg. every 3 hours to every 4 hours to 5 etc..0 Other accounts say that the only and best way is to quit cold turkey. The side effects are often too much to handle so people use alcohol or things like Valium to overcome them. Either way in order to quit you have to stop using it. Sounds simple but those of us who are addicted know the truth.
