Hello: I suppose what brought me here is more my need to share my current problem with someone but also to help myself find the best method to overcome my addiction. I have been struggling for several months now with a sizable cocaine addiction. I have a lot of friends who have been influencing my usage and no Im almost 4 months of continued daily usage and I am physicaly wasting away. I tried last week to go cold turkey and I was nearly incapable of anything but laying in my apartment, riddled with periods of cold/hot flashes, nearly zero appetite and extreme irritability. Ive been reading it can be dangerous to quit cold turkey so ive been significantly reducing my intake and going as long as I can without it before it affects my ability to work and keep myself alive. I believe myself to be a strong and inteligent individual but this dependency has taken me aback in a way I almost didnt believe possible. I will recover and beat this but I feel good discussion with others can help me find effective ways to quit and be done.
