Addiction and Withdrawal
Users of large amount of amphetamines over a long period of time can develop an amphetamine psychosis, which is a mental disorder similar to paranoid schizophrenia. The psychosis is manifested by hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia. Bizarre, sometime violent, behavior is exhibited by those with amphetamine psychosis. Symptoms usually disappear within a few weeks after drug use stops.

At times...
At times it seems that I'm staying in the amphetamine capitol of the world. You can see this in the eyes of the late-night wanderers. Hiking up and down the highway, hanging out in the 7-11's and truck stops. I see them every night, they ask for rides. I make an excuse for not, and with my hand on my knife, walk carefully around them. They seem mostly violent, here.

Re: At times...

Ever consider that?
somethin to think about.

I spent a year in San Francisco. Tweaker's run in packs there under the cover of night. Causing trouble, being dramatic and sketchy. Sometimes I miss the tweakers though, they were the only ones up EVERYDAY at 4am to entertain me.

That right there is why I miss DC.
There are plenty of people here and up and active at 4 am. They just tend to guys with plastic beer cups filled with coors light or something equally vile yelling out the frat boy mating call and arhythmically wiggling their butts to the latest release from Mizz Spheres.
So, yeah, I actually *prefer* the crank head population roaming for a lil coffee to perk them up at quarter til dawn.
I know where I am with a speed freak. Drunk 20 something white boys in packs, on the other hand, tend to be *dangerously* erratic.

:shudder: frat boys. I have a repour with drug people. I am, infact, a drug person myself. Drug people justg make sense to me, because thats erradic behavior I understand and sometimes display myself.

Plus, "...the good thing about crack is, if your up at the right hour, you can get a VCR for a dollar fifty."

I just cannot dig the weekend drunks in the designer shoes that ya just KNOW they're gonna puke on later.

altered states that don't make ya puke are always the way to go. And there's soooo many to choose from.

Indeed, though my selection is dwindling these days. I quit doing so many fun substances.

Unfortunately me too.
I'm looking for a relapse though.
For awhile anyway.
My time for irresponsibility and absentee brainish is dwindling fast. Gotta get back into the habit now or I won't be able to maintain it through my golden years

Well, I'm always abusing some chemicals... just a fact of my existence, though not the only fact.

I don't think I've had an actually 100% drug free day since I started smoking in the 9th grade.

..... is my existence supposed to have fact?
uhm... I wasn't aware of that and because I was not previously informed of it's 'required' status, I feel I should be allowed an extention in order to obtain, research, and verify some fact.

Ever just want to take a whole bottle of those "these are GREAT FOR YOU!" herbal suplement things that are jam packed with ephedra?

I would probably want to down the good for you herbal suplements, except I am prescribed amphetamines, so theres no real point. Plus, even before the amphetamines, I was a tweak and a half. But, I do often feel like eating xanax and kolonopins until I see pink elephants.
