I STILL carry duct tape everywhere I go, and art supplies in case I'm stuck with nothing to do somewhere I can't smoke my cigarettes.
I was afraid I could only think of meth, foil and a pipe.
....I am a pack rat clutter monster by nature.
but it doesn't look like massive wet random, mildewing clutter or nothing.
Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
and other things I don't carry.

.... empty Listerine breath strip containers! and decorated tick tack boxes!
For the purpose of loved ones knowing how slippery we can be....
when I smoked speed I stole those things and dumped
the breath strips in my empty wallet, and put the square bag
in the matching square breath strip container, and put that in the matching little square right pocket within the pocket of my jeans.
...needed to be easily identified by me for inner constitution.
.. not obvious, but not a loose bag for Gods sake...I'd have a panic attack if I didn't have it IN the box and IN the pocket..
if no breath strips, tic tac things.
...when I ate it, I'd put speed capsules in it. that size holds..a razor, short straw, and dope.
tin foil, a straw and dope.
I decorated them either with duct tape, paper or colored electrical...I custom designed these for my friends.
....I'd empty those single color square eye shadow boxes had a straw where the applicator was, and dope and a razor.
.....I'd put lines where the empty eye shadow hole was.
I also use to buy gas station pills like "stingers" that you couldn't see thru....in the little bottles.
it looked just like the most legal thing you ever saw.
....I could do it in grand central station.
taking some gas station pills here! ...good stuff!
it killed me anyway.
.....I was "functional" then.
lemmmie tell you..
...you can't explain away smoking a speed pipe, or foil and a straw.
there's nothing you can do with it, to hide it quick because its molten chemical scorching hot lava.
......that's when the altoid boxes became important.
to lay it down.
there's nothing more un natural you can do...
....animals look at you funny.
at home HAD to have a dark colored platter, under a plate, and a mirror before I'd open the bag.....
after 22 years you get tired of hunting rocks.
....I KNEW there wasn't any on the floor.
My ex would do it over the cat litter box........where there's loose bits of litter around it?  do I have to tell you I know what used multi cat tastes like?
I don't have to Carry on about not doing crimes over the litter box.

why did you ask this question lax?
Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
1. Meth, meth, meth and more meth.
2. Rigs
3. 'Rig Kits'
4. Extraordinary amounts of makeup
5. Lighter
6. Cigarettes
7. Distilled water
8. Burden of proof (that that's not my meth)
9. Sketch pad, pencils, kneaded eraser, notebook, pens (and I wasn't even in college)
10. A false sense of well being
11. Empty plastic pill capsules in case I didn't have time for a rig (unfortunately I often forgot I had swallowed the pill full of meth, went ahead and did the rig anyways, became spun, nearly OD'd)

Suz, you reminded me, I can't believe I forgot!! I always had an Altoids box in my purse, the tin kind with the flip top. I always kept my bag in there and my capsules too. 
blondie Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
I no longer carry in my car
bottle of vodka
milk on ice
spoons to mix my drink
and all the while driving like this..
I am so thankful I don't have to live this way
God Bless
Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
haha I think you guys must have had a HUGE bag or perhaps a pick-up to lug all this around!!
Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
Sketch pad, pencils, kneaded eraser, notebook, pens (and I wasn't even in college)

how do you feel about not carrying these?
...I didn't draw for 6 years on my longest recovery time. when I relapsed, I thought, "I'll never not be able to draw again" I thought i would die doing speed.
when I lost everything and mom took me to a shrink
...it turned out, I was ADHD and the drawing side of suzette (my addiction's name) is actually valid.
....if I knew that at 18 instead of 38 my life would have been enchanted, I think.
everyone's would, compared to what we ended up with.
....now I'm taking adderrall.
my drawings are clean...not black.

my purpose in life is to tell you this.
...if you want examples or think it's true for you too. say it.

lax2 Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
More things ..(it sometimes took 5 hours rounding up what I needed in my backpack) (The breath strips pack is one I never thought of!
But that's what reminded me of #21
21.M & M Mints container... holds cigs drugs, pen cap.
22.pen cap
24.condoms (I was a Boy scout-Be prepared!)
25. porn
26.car magazines (for intermission)
28.Phone #s
29. change for machines/phones

I kid you not!!! I took so long to get out of the house, people would usually go on ahead w/o me...

(SUZIE ^ OTHERS...) I came up with this idea after finding the Topic on the FUN & GAMES FORUM started by sdmanjose,
POST titled "HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW ME">>> Check it out and answer that too if you haven't already, please. Thank you...

It helps us get to know each other better, Like this topic
does, it seems...ALSO SUZIE... You & I would have been quite a sight in the old days...QUITE a Sneaky (NOT) pair indeed... together we'd be watching porn, drawing and reading about cars, etc so forth OMG...

Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
1. dope (I would buy the MAC "Studio Fix" compacts, which had a secret compartment
2. rigs and works and kits
3. pillboxes full of any assortment of pills you could imagine
4. changes of clothes - I felt really "naked" if I didn't have AT LEAST two changes with me
5. all of my belongings in those HUGE ghetto woven plaid bags because I got kicked out of where ever I was staying and was hauling my @#%$ around aimlessly like a mule
6. stolen @#%$
7. tons of makeup, pens, and little water bottles all in a jumble at the bottom of my bag along with tourniquets, old rigs, and baggies. ("Tweaker Gumbo") (I was the most unscrupulous, un-careful person about walking around with that shyt in practically plain view!)
8. Hallucinations
9. Disgusting open sores all over my body
10. Which reminds me: BANDAGES. F**k, I was the Michelin Woman sometimes, wrapped up like a damn mummy because my sores were so infected and bad! I still have a lifetime supply of every type of bandage or dressing and tape you will ever want.
11. Then to cover the mummy effect ('specially on my arms), I would put these Britney Spears-esque black footless socks over my arms to cover the whole thing up! Or I would cut the toes off of socks and cover my arms with them! Ghetto!
12. Guilt
lax2 Re: Things I no longer (need to) carry...
oops I forgot...
31. maps
32.lists of things to do
33/list of places to go
34.people to call
35.things to pack/things to buy...

what also gave me this idea was that now when I go out I basically take 3 things ONLY!!! keys, wallet, and money--(no phone) I had trouble coming up with the 4th thing...
Oh HOW MUCH I've changed, and I do actually LIKE myself now, now that I am not carrying so much...
36. guilt
38. feeling of "being Lost"  around with me everywhere...( I can handle my spare tire for now!!!)
