    Has anyone had any success quitting Meth without a recovery? If so please let me know how you did it!

    @Vella... Do you mean without going to rehab?

    I have a friend...Used meth for ten years, usually injection, and got very sick and almost died. Sitting in the hospital trying not to die, she had an awakening. There were cancer patients in the hospital trying not to die, innocent people who did not cause their illness. She realized that the condition she was in was caused by meth, voluntarily used, and if she died, her Baby wouldn't have a mom. My friend has never used meth or needles again. This was twenty years ago. It was hard to get used to a drug free life. To get off meth, the addict must stay away from those who use. You end up enjoying flowers, beaches, FOOD! Life can never be quite the same, but you can rebuild a new one. My friend had to have her husband removed, get a restraining order, and start all over. He still uses meth, is homeless, and missed the most glorious thing of all, SEEING HIS DAUGHTER GROW UP! It really is possible to stop using meth. You don't even think about it, after 20 years!
