That's what I don't understand, why are they trying to substitute drugs with another form of drugs when it will just divert them from using the original drug and it's not gonna improve their life? That's why it's important to just concentrate getting rid of the cravings rather than finding a less harmful outlet to be addicted on.
What can you do to substitute for Meth? I have found this to work for alcohol and tobacco, but not harder drugs.
There are a few drugs that are prescribed to treat meth withdrawals, but that's something to talk more with a doctor about.
You can substitute one addiction for another, but what is the substitute to completely beating your addiction? There is none. Weening or slowly transitioning is more likely to help than going from one addiction to another because you couldn't quit cold turkey.
Yes this is so true and important to remember. But sadly, a lot of people are in denial when it comes to this. They don't think they're substituting. People have to be careful with this.
I see a lot of us have switched to sugar. I need to start watching my sugar intake as I am still gaining and don't want to turn into a fatty. It's hard some days but in life I think everyone has some sort of addiction, whether it be buying too much crap, porn, food, drugs, hording, gambling...I mean the list could go on. With the human condition, we are all yearning for something and when something is lacking we reach out for something else...
