Re: meth

Well one big question first: Are we talking about methadone, or methamphetamine? Of course with either drug there is always a chance! Methadone is in the family of my previous drug of choice. I've been clean off opiates for eight weeks now! But again more information would be really helpful.

Re: meth

If its methadone then i can answer your questions (from an individual point of view). Im 6 months clean from a year taper off methadone - over a year off Heroin.

tho methamphetamine - i couldnt say, i only tried it once.

As klonklown says - more information would be helpful.

yoss

keep on keepin on

Re: meth

sorry goose, as i said - ive only tried methamphetamine once. I thought you might be talking about methadone (Heroin substitute). Hopefully someone will post back soon. i wish you all the very best & hope your recovery is swift.

Re: meth

First off thanks for the congrats! Methamphetamine is a drug I don't know too much about. Also since you didn't know the full name I think you don't either? Again some more information would be helpful...since you mentioned snorting it I guess thats your route of administration? Did you ever smoke, or inject it? From what I heard about it, and take this with a grain of salt, (mostly hear say), its a lot like cocaine, with a more intense high and longer buzz? I went through a month and half with coke, went through a lot of money, and almost lost my job. I luckily realized what I was doing and quit. Hopefully someone else will be more knowledge of this substance, sorry I'm not a whole lot of help. But always believe you can be clean too, addiction lowers its ugly head about the same way in any drug.
