It started out as so much fun, but lately its been causing me not to be able to sleep or eat properly. I've gotten maybe 6 hours of sleep in the past 2 days. And some days I can't even eat at all. But at the same time I haven't being doing for as long as those people you see on intervention. I don't know where to get help. i have no family support and i find myself just getting annoyed at my friends when they say im an addict. cuz addict to me is such a strong word and its something i thought i would never be labeled as. I feel so alone and scared. I dont know what to do
You don't need to feel alone and I can relate to your plight.
You have identied the problem;from all parameters it seems,which is definitely a step in the right direction.
In the beginning,that euphoric sense of being is actually a false sense of security.
Once in the system,many things can happen.
Now here's the question: "Are you ready to call yourself an addict. or perhaps a person addicted to drugs?
May I ask if you have a plan going forward, such as AA(Alcoholics Anonymous) or NA(Narcotics Anonymous) ?
