Addicted to....Nitrous Oxide?

    I'm actually wondering if anyone else has had this experience.

    Nitrous oxide wasn't my primary addiction, but when I was trying to quit using heroin (which is my primary addiction), I stupidly tried to quit alone with the "help" of other substances like weed, alcohol, and nitrous. While I was withdrawing, I found the anesthetic effects of nitrous helped with the pain of not taking heroin. Bad idea. I quickly started using NO2 daily, and became addicted.

    I haven't really heard of other people who've experienced this, and was wondering if there was anyone else out there. I actually suffered a lot of damage from my nitrous use. I lost some feeling in my fingers and toes, and got a pretty serious vitamin B12 deficiency, which lead to a temporary psychosis. Don't want to get to deep into this, but please chime in if you've had an experience like mine.

    I have never been through anything like this. Does your fingers or toes hurt if you were to stub them on a wall,ect? Has the doctor prescribed some vitamins for your deficiency?
