Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?


marakris Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
He wants to work on the yard and get a bunch of stuff done. He is trying to talk me into letting him cook some meth in our basement. He is trying to convince me that we could do it casually, whenever I think that we could not do that. Does anybody think that doing meth casually for a few days would be doable?? I told him we'd get brain damaged even more and he said "just a little bit" . hahaha
I have like 90 something days clean and he has a year, except he smoked crack recently. God, we sound like looser!!!!!

You don't sound like losers. Just like sick people - with very little or defense against this disease.
THE ANSWER IS NO.
Unless the your willing to pay the price . . .
the price could be many different things.
Death..
Insanity . . .
Loosing everything - including each other
Jobs...
Homes....
Etc etc etc
And yes - - - All that can happen from Just Using one more time - just using "casually"

HELL NO! Why ruin what good thing you have going? You're not losers, just real people dealing with day to day life choices. Make the right one sweetie...its worth it.

NO!

You have come so far, don't throw your sobriety out the window! Think about how you will feel tomorrow morning.
Do you think you will feel regret? I bet you would.
Please stay clean!

PS. you are not loosers

The addict is at large in him ... and the sad part his addiction wants you to co-sign it, by joining in and if you do join you will not only be co-sign his, but yours as well.
You already know the answers to your question .. deep down inside you do...
Don't do it!

No need to throw your recovery time to the wind just because he has ... If he uses .. let it be without you.

First off, you are not losers!

Temptation is normal. Just stop and think what is at stake if you give up the 90 days. Ground zero is a major bummer of a place to go back to.
Stop and think of all the good things that have taken place in the past 90 days.  Then tell your husband the same.

Then both of you................


Then go to an ice cream shop and get a cone with each other!

I know a guy that snorted meth a lot and got a huge one on his nose. He wouldn't go to the doctor, he just drained it everyday until it popped out, it was like the size of a grape.
Another guy got this huge infection on his arm and it was really swollen and he had to have surgery and skin grafts, he was hospitalized for like a week or more, but could have lost his arm.

This sounds like fun....

Look at the words you just typed. Come-on, please say with us:
Today I will choose to say no to meth.

Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
This is your brain on drugs...
Your addiction is trying to rationalize with you... Hello... Wake up call...

Keep the pain green. Do you not remember what the pain of withdrawal was like? Do you not remember how chaotic your life was? Now why on earth do you want to go through that again?
That's a lot of clean time to just throw it away to one more time.

Go to a meeting or call your sponsor.
You are worth your recovery & better than using.

Answer this one Question - -
Do you honestly think you can use just once ... just here and there ... every now and then - "casually" ....
ONLY U CAN ANSWER THAT.
If the answer is yes - - or maybe - - then you will probably use.
When you get to the point & IT IS A VERY NECESSARY POINT where you can answer NO .... and you are straight about there is NO JUST ONCE - No every now and then .... and you are able to see for yourself how bad it is and how once is never enough and it leads to yet another run with misery & chaos ..... when you get there - your chances at staying sober - are way Better.

It took me a long time to get there.
But today I KNOW .... I CAN NOT USE Casually ....
I know where it takes me.
There is No doubt.
And I do not have to ask others for their opinion about it
marakris Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
Ok, I have only had 1 relapse-
I went through all of the symptoms, the weight gain, fatigue, depression, just like when I stopped for the first time. I had 7 months clean then.
I am just so frustrated with my relationship. I know better than to go back. I am so glad that I have this place to come to instead.
Thanks so much everyone. I am going to give it 1000%.

Before I go home from work for the night...I wanted to encourage you again! I see you're still on and I wanted to let you know that 90 days is HUGE! Respect yourself and all that you've been through by continuing to stay clean! Stand firm!

And it will be EXACTLY the same if you do it again. This time and every other time.

WHY on EARTH would you want to go through that again?

WHY on EARTH would you want to destroy the dopamine your body has been working so hard to replace from your last run?

Definition of insanity:

DOING THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER, AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.

If you want to get things done around the house, just do them. Cooking a batch of meth makes no sense after being clean for so long.

If you need yard work done, do yard work. Leave the dope out of the equation - this is what we call living life on life's terms.

Once more:
INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER,
AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.
JUSTCATS Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
Have you lost your freaking mind????? How could you even THINK about cooking that sh!t!!!! Do you know how much damage meth labs do??? Check out the websites.

You are putting yourselves and your neighbors in grave danger. If you are cooking while kids are there, you are affecting their health from fumes and explosions. Maybe you don't give a damn about "your health" but what about "kids and other innocent people!!!"

Meth residue sticks to clothes and anything it comes in contact with. It is frickin toxic and HIGHLY EXPLOSIVE!!!

Hey, if you have got a meth problem, then you have come to the right place, but use some God given, common sense and don't frickin cook the sh!t!

I am p!ssed that you would even mention cooking that sh!t with your husband. That just amazes the sh!t out of me! Get some guts and tell him to get the h%ll out, if he is dead-set on cooking it...

You have some serious issues, even thinking about cooking that sh!t! Is it all worth the hell that it has made all of our lives???
chrisgonz Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
You're setting yourself up for some serious legal trouble.
Once you get into cooking, it won't be..once a whatever, it will be a daily thing. You know that.
You know that messing with Meth is going to get you hooked.

You'll be here after your run, saying exactly what you've said before.

Keep it real...
if you want to walk/run on the wild side, just do it.
You don't need our permission for that.

How you going to throw away a year for a weekend??
Plus what you're thinking of doing is BIG TIME illegal.
Are you willing to do the time as well???
Do you even know the sentences for manufacturing limits are in your area. Do you live near a school.

How can you subject the innocent people who live in your immediate area to that SHYTE???
Lady.. where's your common sense and CONSCIOUS.
man...if you were my neighbor and you tried that shyte around my baby...
ooowww..
you'd be in sooo much trouble!!!

Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
marakris,
It's my opinion that if you make a batch of that stuff you probably won't get any yard work done--as if that was an all important task in the first place. When I was in that situation {{{{{cringe}}}}} and had access to such a supply of meth all I did was sit and do more meth & then my Maker would scavenge the stores around town & brew up another batch. Once for four months straight I didn't work or do anything besides do meth night and day, and it's the source of nightmares & endless counseling sessions for me now!

The vapors are dangerous enough but when you think about your entire home (& neighbor's property) going kitty-caboom I must write that you're more than playing with fire, especially considering the hefty criminal sentences associated with manufacture. You are not thinking clearly. Please do not make meth. I know your update read you wouldn't and I'm not trying to harp on you, but if you change your mind & are dead set on throwing your clean time away buy it instead of making it--especially if you or your neighbors have kids.

Sure using for two days is do-able, using for the indefinite future is also do-able...and VERY likely.
Have you ever done meth casually?
Substituting one drug for another leads most of us back to the meth treadmill. i.e. crack smoking > meth.
You're not losers....you're making losing choices.
Hubby is in deep trouble IMO, he has given himself permission and justification, a dangerous posture to assume, a posture that this addict was NEVER able to reverse.
He's off the deep end and is doing his best to take you with him, leaving you faced with critical choices.
These are life and death decisions, the collective prayer of this forum is that *YOU* make the right ones, and only you know what is right for you.
marakris Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
Ok, it's morning and all is well. No meth. I am so emotional over all of this sh!t with my husband, I am starting to understand just how bad it is.
He can't function emotionally on the same level as me, for reasons that we can't pinpoint.
1. He was a prof. athlete and suffered head injuries that put him in a coma for a week.
2. Lots of drugs, meth for about 10 years off and on.
3. He is an alcoholic.
So whenever I try to use my inner resources (which I really do have lots of), I get so much resistance from him...like he's lying to me, constantly sneaking around....he has an endless supply of BS that I just can't relate to. So I go round and round "Who-What-Where-When-and WHY??" Or I detach and all this is going on under my nose.....or I leave and eventually every time so far, which has been so many times that I have lost count - HE BEGS HIS WAY BACK TO ME..............and then I get all sucked back into the BS....same story we all here on this site.....only it is MY emotions driving me crazy, until I want to get high to escape, relate and not feel like "a goody goody" (he used to call me that).
Thanks again everyone....coming here gave me renewed strength.
guestwho Re: Is doing meth casually for a few days doable?
Just realize he is using and is going to continue using manipulation to get you to use. If you use, his usage is condoned and he is going to continue using. It's a shame that this is happening to you because that's such a weak excuse and probably just the start of a bunch of silliness. Keep an eye on him, mentally roll your eyes in your head when he is trying to entice you. It sounds like you don't want to relapse. Do not give into the pressure and if you find out he is using again, do what you have to do but don't ever use because it is just going make this volatile situation even more dangerous. He's slipping into that dark pit, stay in the sunshine. Do what you have to do for you.
