Can vitamin supplements help keep you healthy if you choose to use meth?

Can vitamin supplements help keep you healthy if you choose to use meth?

Hell no!!!: Sorry for the French but there is no way to keep healthy if you choose to use meth. Bottom line, stay away from the stuff. For that matter, stay away from any illegal stuff. Heck, stay away from legal stuff like narcotics (hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine, dilaudid etc), benzodiazepines (alprazolam, diazepam & lorazepam etc) & sedative-hypnotics (zolpidem etc): all are very addictive.

I was a recovered meth addict for a year and just recently relapsed I can't seem to find anyways to get energy any ideas so I can stop using?

Relapse: Relapse is not unusual, and is often part of the process of recovery. It can be difficult to get through the times after you use meth, because energy does feel depleted along with neurotransmitters being depleted too. I suggest working with an addiction medicine doctor on this problem. There are inpatient programs, and also community help is available at: http://www. Crystalmeth. Org/index. Php.

How do I quit and recover from meth addiction?

How do I quit and recover from meth addiction?

Meth addiction: One the most promising treatments for meth addiction is something called prometa. A november, 2011, double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the journal addiction concluded that prometa is ineffective. "the prometa protocol, consisting of flumazenil, (clonazepam) Gabapentin and hydroxyzine, appears to be no more effective than placebo in reducing methamphetamine use, retaining patients in treatment.

What are some recommended foods to eat when recovering from meth addiction?

What are some recommended foods to eat when recovering from meth addiction?

Healthy ones: If you're in recovery from meth, that is a hard road. You've used a lot of your resilience in your habit, and now need to build it up again. As many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can eat, leafy green salads, and lean meats like chicken and wild alaskan salmon would be good. The latter will help replenish your omega-3's to stabilize neuronal membranes. Whole foods that are not processed.

I'm currently recovering from meth addiction. A lot of what I read online is negative and makes me feel hopeless. I really can be okay again, right?

I am proud of you: You really can be ok again! You need a support group, of those who have walked down that same road. Make sure you have a good caring doctor, and at least one close friend to run to and hold you accountability http://www. Drugabuse. Gov/publications/drugfacts/methamphetamine http://teens. Drugabuse.

Do you ever think that a meth addict may be right when they say they hear voices? Ever heard of gang stalking? Do u believe this to be possible?

Wow...: Neither is good. Meth addicts can become psychotic, this may involve hallucinations, break with reality, paranoic & high risk for death and suicide if not treated. Detox or referral to crisis unit is needed. Gang stalking is slang for multiple people harassing following someone. The meth world/dealers and gangs involved in dealing can be quite dangerous. Detox and treatment is a start.
