    I didn't want to chime in here until today,considering it was your first time with (glass)-Meth by about now or maybe a few hours ago you should start to crave sugar,food,etc and be able to eat assuming you haven't done anymore. Your body will hurt this DOES NOT mean you have a physical addiction to meth this means you over exerted yourself all those hour's you were awake.Eat-sh×t-sleep repeat for a day or 2 and you should start to feel like yourself again. Leave that stuff alone,it will twist your mind in ways you can't imagine and don't want to experience, if your in need of extra energy try a power nap mid day or at lunch time meth will only destroy everything you are and could ever hope to be.Stay Strong and God Bless

    Hey so I'm not sure how old your post is but for about 2.5 years I was clean and sober off glass and recently had so much go on that I fell back into it. Now ppl do it for all kinds of reasons, ie to escape pain and suffering, some want a release from some sort of abuse the going through others do it simply for the rush while there at a party. Whatever the case may be it's horrible. My ex and I got into it when we were together after losing a child at birth. We wanted that release from the emotional pain we were going through, little did we know that there wasn't just gonna be one or 2 times to numb the pain. We went out found what we were looking for and the minute we did it and felt this unrealistic calm and happiness we knew we were hooked, we started buying every day trying to justify it that it was helping our emotional and mental pain of losing a child, we were happy or so we thought, we were getting along and going out and even making love again, but it all changed as we used more we had to start using bigger amounts and then it got to the point of hallucinations and anger when I didn't have the money to buy for her, needless to say I checked into rehab after an overdose which I was pronounced D.O.A and woke in the hospital pulling a short off my face, doctors were shocked and confused. I was given a second chance and went to Adult & Tern Challenge okanagan men's center and got my self clean and started living right again and as I mentioned. Now I've fallen off course again due to recent losses in the family, what I'm saying is you used and now maybe your not and if so great don't touch it again no matter how happy you thought it made you it wasn't real friend, it was drug induced happiness. As for coming down I've never noticed any real side affects other then it took me about a day n a half to start eating again after I'd stop using to get back on track somewhat so to speak, a tip font chug any of the liquids you take it. Because of the strain you put on your body while using your likely to throw up if you chug, also I found in the time between my last use and waiting to be able to eat, I would sip electrolytes so that I got some vitamins also take a vitamin c once a day and only one. Get lots of sleep and shower frequently as well as when it comes out of your system your sweat shoes it. I've also tried Luke warm NOT HOT shower or bath to sooth muscles.

    Remember friend electrolytes (sipping not chugging), small amounts of food and chew well and eat slow at first,don't shovel it in cause you haven't eaten for a few days, take liquids and food slow, small amounts to start and lots of rest.

    In the end it's better just to stay away from the glass but alast everyone has free will and there choice is there own.

    Take care, be safe, and when in doubt reach out before doing anything that could end badly.

    Blessing friend
