  • Another one that looks strung out . He is tweek in the Shue . Next is the dreaded withdrawal. That’s when you know your not getting out anytime soon ,so next is sleeping for a week and starving at least thats what i remembered when i was a using meth addict. I have been in recovery will be 16 yrs in Dec .if this guy can stay off the meth he can turn his life around .just like I did ,so mr Ulrich if you read this you can do it if that is what you want .I have had a wonderfull a rewarding recovery .best of luck to you and your recovery .maybe jail will save your life .

    • Congratulations. I heard someone say, “If I knew I would feel this good I would have quit a long time ago.” My guess is you feel the same.

    • Way to go buddy, and that’s very kind of you to reach out to other addicts! Our crime rates won’t go down unless we work on the addiction issues we have in this county. It’s easy for a lot of people to judge others for turning to drugs but judging people has yet to solve any problems, it’s time to start helping instead. Liz is very correct, I started drinking when I was 13, I didn’t even remember what sobriety felt like but now I’m so thankful for every day sober! Best wishes to all addicts, I hope every last one can heal and become the positive member of society they could be!

    • Excellent post. I congratulate you for overcoming the meth death.

  • If I can give hope to a addict .that thinks there is no hope . There is always hope .I hope I have another 16 yrs which I know I will . I lost my mother a lil over a yr ago ,and if ever a time to relapse. That was the time ,but I’d rather die than give up the joy I get just by being free of meth .it has been so long that I can hardly remember what it was like. I wish all meth addicts can get free . I didn’t do a program or council ing .I just said I’m not doing it again. And that was it .the love for my mother and my sister gave me the strength to conquer that demon . If a person. Of addiction can find that one thing that is more important than dope use that tool to sobriety .it worked for me , so like I said there is hope.I hope my story help s .Thank you sparkle man , Phoenix and liz for your kind words buy doing ,so you just reinforced my sobriety .

  • this summer is going to get bad with addicts stealing and robbing.The economy here is about to get real tight and all the losers who couldnt work hard and took the easy way out will be stealing.Friends and family will be borrowing money or asking for fronts and not paying….be careful this year don’t let losers get over on worked hard they didnt.
