    After 3 years of this never ending meth cycle i finally admitted its a problem. First it was once a month now its turned into once a week use. Since if started to try to recover i been relapsing at the 7th or 8th day mark. I feel like **** that day which makes me cave to cravings. I bought vitamins to help with detox which do help. Is there anything out there to fight cravings. Any tips would help. I sniff meth as prefered method i never smoke it. Porn, sex and meth is why i do it. I'm over this never ending meth cycle and want to go back to normal life. I have a good business and my main goal is to keep growing and meth drags me down. I'm 35 so i started when i was probably 31. No drugs when i was young because i wanted to have my career in order. Seems now that i have my house, truck and business since im comfortable it made me use drug more.

    Hello and welcome. Thank you for reaching out. I'm glad that you want to stop using. I personally think that it could be helpful for you to reach out for professional help. In dealing with addictions, oftentimes there's some underlying issues that need to be dealt with or you may continue to face relapse after relapse. Putting down the drug is one thing. Staying free from the drug and living a life that is marked with more peace and joy is something quite different. And sometimes we just need help to get there.

    Are you open to attending 12 Step support group? I know that helps some people when it comes to cravings support.

    What kind of support do you have going on right now? Of course we are here to encourage you the best you can, but sometimes face-to-face support can also be helpful. I'm not discounting residential rehab program as well. Many people have benefited from taking a short period of life and really focusing on recovery on all levels.

    We're definitely here for you anytime.

    Welcome to the community, @Lurevert7. And congrats on recognizing that your meth use is a problem. And wanting to quit.

    @Dominica has given you some excellent advice and I agree with everything she said. Think about seeing an addiction specialist. They can assess your situation and recommend the best next steps for dealing with your addiction. They can likely help you get over that 7th or 8th day hump, too. Maybe find a therapist to talk to as well, preferably one who specializes in helping people with addiction issues. Like Dominica said, addiction frequently comes as a result of underlying issues that we need to discover/confront/conquer. A good therapist can help you do that.

    We're here to help, support, encourage, and listen. So anytime you need someone to lean on, know that you can come here and post. We care.

    I'm proud of you for sharing with us. And for taking steps to improve your life. You can do this. I know you can.
