My Meth Story

Loriann Witte CAC 949-292-2000
Google my name to see more about me and my work.

I am personally a recovering addict. At one time I was doing crystal meth for about six years before I moved onto heroin, cocaine, and methadone. 

The speed treated me badly. At first, I was doing all of my school work and losing weight. I started living around the clock. I had so much time, to get things done because I rarely slept. I met interesting people, and it was all a 'great rush.'

Then my skin started breaking out, and my mouth moved to the side of my face. The light hurt my eyes, so I spent more time in the dark, even moved into my closet and pounded nails into blankets I hung to cover up my window. 

Sex drive was high; nothing like it had ever compared. Next, the paranoia came. The fear gripped me hard the minute I got high. I was hiding out from my family because I knew I looked horribly different.
I was hiding out from every real and imagined danger. I knew I was a bust waiting to happen if the police laid eyes on me. 

My bones hurt. I drank alcohol and used entire prescriptions of 30 valiums over a few days in the effort to come down from the speed. 

As sickness began to grip my body and mind, I no longer felt any connection to a knowledge of right and wrong. My eye tooth got loose and fell out. I noticed others had the same teeth missing. My world was getting dark & ugly. I said I'm around the bend; over the top.

Some addict snort, smoke ice, shoot it IV or take pills.  Whichever way you use it Meth is killing your brain and your body. Meth addicts have already experienced a social and spiritual death.

All develop a strong desire to continue using it because the drug creates a false sense of happiness and well-being—a rush of confidence, hyper activeness, and energy. 

The first experience might involve some pleasure, but from the start, methamphetamine begins to destroy the user’s life. You wish you could quit; you can sometimes stop, but it is so easy to get back into it again. Meth has an energy all of its own, drawing you back even against your will.

The program of recovery has an even stronger power.  I do not crave drugs today.  I have been relieved of the obsession. I am happy and content in my relationships. My life is even important to other people as well as to myself. I am so glad to be alive and healthy. I can do and have anything; I want to create for myself. So can you. 

You don’t have to live this way.
The war is over, declare peace on yourself and everybody else in recovery.
