    The phyciotrist told me that it takes two years for damage to the brain to stop. Thats two years to the last time you intake in any way of cystal ( I call her the EVIL  girl friend ). Whether you shoot it , smoke , snort or even eat . Its the Devils tool to steal who we are. The whole " WHAT WERE WE TALKING ABOUT, OR WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO GET AT THE STORE " will only go away if you actually keep telling yourself " WHAT YOUR DOING ". Main brain damage I personally think comes from accidental or purposefully " OVER DOSE". That is my personal opinion. I know that I am actually lucky to even to be alive again. I lost a week and half in the summer of 2009. I recamend that if your not clean yet, that you take a few minutes and think , ponder, and figure out what is the reason , purpose and personal issu of why you are still stuck on that Evil girl. It not even a better reason to be clean and sober. think of the things that open back up to you, the opertoonities . I have no room to preach to any one . I can only tell you what it has done to me.
    I was a great father , husband and owned three bussineses , the entire town new me as an honest person. Till the day I Met that evil entising girl named " CRYSTAL".  She took every thing, Now my family is gone, I have maybe 20 dollars to my name at a time, ( whitch to me is a constant reminder to me of what the right choice is ) it keeps me in check to never go back. After two years of losing every thing twice, including y physicle life, I finally got the picture . I now can hold my grandson in my arms , and tell him grandpa loves you. Before getting clean that did not even matter. So thing of what you losing ? Not only your life, but every one that you know is also missing the person they know. You may never be the person you were. Make sure of that. I set my goals to high, I thought I could go back to who I was. Never expect that. Come to realize , you are a better person than you were. Now your journey through life will finally begine again. Do to the fact when that EVIL LITTLE BITCH has ahold of who you are , she doesn't let you out. So my only advice is to run as far away from the drug world as you can. Or go and donate time in a detoxe facility, it becomes a constant reminder of what hell you walked through alone, and help others climb back out of the addiction. I can promise only one thing  !!!! LOVE, KINDNESS AND CHARITY to all, it does come back to help you grow. We are a stronger person because of our addiction, only if we survive!!!!

      I'm glad you're back on the right path.
      Maybe you should write a hub about this;  who knows who might come across it and see your testimony about how you were able to survive and rebuild your life?!  Meth is a major problem in so many people's lives.  Your words have the power to give them some hope.

    It takes a lot of courage to get yourself clean from addiction. Too often it's easy to just fall back into it. But good for you for getting clean and being a survivor, and now, perhaps even a mentor to others who have struggled.

    My daughter was addicted to alcohol and heroine. I don't know how she cleaned it all up, but she is completely off all of it, and sober now for about 4 years. She has a great job and continues to make advancements at work, and is married to a spectacular guy.

    It's possible to beat addiction and make a good life. I agree with Brenda, since you're here at HP, start writing about overcoming it.

    I agree with Brenda Durham - this content would make a great hub and a hub won't get lost in "threads" so people who would benefit from words such as this will be able to find it easily.

    I'm glad you kicked Crystal M Beaaaatch out of your life, jeffchenvert. I hope you and your family will learn to trust each other again very soon and build some relationships back up.
