    Meth Binger

    The first time I ever "used" - was when I was 16. I didn't "use" again until I was almost 20. I am now 23. I still can't figure out why I "used" after almost 4 years. I was a "Binger". I had 2 to 4 weeks in between "puddles". When I was "using" my daily intake was between 1 to 4 grams a day and sometimes even up to 6 or 7 grams. I usually smoked it, but I also snorted it. My binges lasted from 1 to 14 days. I eventually ended up in jail because of my habit. That is what told me I had a problem with Meth. I "used" once shortly after I got out; but now have a girlfriend who is trying to help me with this. I am helping with a youth support group that is being put together. I want to clean-up my life but it is hard.

    Life is tough right now and stress is what started my binges. I need help but I don't know how to ask for it. I don't think I have strong cravings any more, just minor urges to "use" again. My girlfriend is trying very hard to help but she doesn't know much about Meth. Two nights ago I told her about this web site she said she went through the whole site. She said it helped her understand more about Meth. (Thank-you very much) A lot of people say that talking about it is a "trigger" I think it is true but talking helps me. I'm not the type to ask for help, so it makes my recovery hard. I don't ever want to use again. For the first time, I have realized that there is more to life than drugs and partying. Please help me to stay clean. Any suggestions to help me are greatly appreciated. Thank-you for creating this web site it has helped a lot and I hope it will continue to help me and others to a clean life and staying clean.
