Heard someone say once, “when I first tried Adderall, I wondered why anyone even did cocaine”. Quitting Adderall/Vyvanse is tough man 😞

Adderall may be the next drug that we look back on in hindsight and realize that maybe we shouldn’t have been prescribing it to everyone and giving it out like candy.

I only have one or two experiences with adderall, and those consisted of crushing it up and snorting it, which helped to prevent or delay an alcoholic blackout. Quitting any addictive substance alone is difficult, if not impossible. Fearlessly seek out whatever help you need to find freedom. 🙏

Same, the only time I took adderall was crushed and snorted because I was wasted and couldn’t find the “real” stuff. Blue boogers…..still makes me gag thinking about it.

Anyone up for trading secrets about the lies our addiction tells us?

I have no family and my only friends are bar flies. (Cunning, baffling, powerful).

My son is about to go to college. His dad passed away when he was 8 and had an addiction to alcohol. I am so scared he is going to enter college life and become addicted to things after being curious. We have talked about it many times, but teenagers think they know everything and are invincible. I have told him there is a 50% chance he got the addiction gene and he needs to be careful. When I went to college I partied and tried it all, but I got lucky not getting addicted. Any advice?

Came home and relapsed - it was not a full-on bender but I drank. How do I not beat myself up and just get up and keep going? Alcohol is the WORST thing for any cancer esp breast cancer. WTF is wrong with me!?

I’ve been sober a year now, and someone recently reached out to me about not drinking. When I suggested AA, he said ‘washed out people with nothing to lose’ wouldn’t comfort him. And that it was a ‘scared straight’ approach. I know his is a super harsh and ignorant opinion, but I just want to say if you hold it, it’s so far from the truth. Regardless of age, I’ve met some of the coolest unique people I’ve ever come across in aa, and I just felt sad people might hold that opinion of it in 2021
