I'm Tweaking Kiddies
« on: October 08, 2011, 07:24:59 AM »
WOWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!
I'm Tweaking Kiddies. I was offered a point by the other poz guy in my building whose eye drops I've been administering and I said yes and so he blasted me! Not sure why I said yes but WOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!! This is my 7th time in my life the first time was the night I was infected. I meet a guy on the internet and he invited me around and he had two friends there and they blasted and I said no but they said it didn't hurt them and I should try it. I'd never done drugs except for a joint a couple of times and didn't even know what meth was I was so fucking quaint. It was incrediable I can still remember them putting the needle in my arm and I was so afraid but I soon wasn't and the rest was history. Damn I miss sex, I haven't had sex for so long but I wont do that dont want to hurt anyone. GOD I feel good, I forgotten how good this, Its good to feel happy. Take care Kiddies I'm going to cleam my room I think i should be productive and thats the best way to go.

   When I first read your post I was like, "What the fuck is a point?", now I know.  The old town I lived in, Sebring, was the meth capitol of Florida in my opinion.  I had a neighbor who used the stuff and his yard was the nicest on the block.  He would set up spot lights at night and mow his grass under the stars.

   I've never tried it, nor do I want to.  My experience with crack in the late 80's, and hearing that meth is something like that times ten is all I need to know.  Still escapes me at how I ever quit the stuff.  It still boggles my mind when I think how my first wife said she shared crack when she was out there, me never. lol

   Some people can just enjoy it and go the other direction, not me.  I was a pothead like no other, woke up one day and I was 40.   

   Sounds like you had a great time and I am not the one to judge the method.  Enjoy it, moderation is the key I hear.  I bet that fucking room is clean as a whistle.

Be sure to take a picture of your teeth now (as a before shot).  I am not suggesting it will happen but should it happen that you love this stuff too much... you can look back at that picture and remember when you had them.

This is true..

Also Growler while it does feel good all of the problems you have faced recently will still be there.  Just keep things in perspective.

Enjoy this time, then back to work.

Hi Growler , I'm Jeff . I'm wishing you the best but I must say I'm not one of the cool guys who's going to wish you a good time with what you have done . Its a downright evil drug and it will destroy you if you keep doing it .

Under the guise of I will try it one time I became addicted to meth for a period of about 8 months to a year ... that little open minded experiment took me to the brink of death and a 10 year struggle to regain my health . I have never been the same person since and the same could happen to you if you keep doing it .

Hey mate, am I drawing the correct inference in that the last time you checked your labs was Dec 09? And that you think that 'meds are not the right thing for you' ?

I am hoping that I've either misunderstood or that you kinda misspoke.

Take care of yourself.

Considering the fact that the OP has previously mentioned overdosing on both heroin and pills, I'd advise a bit of restraint in this new indulgence of meth. If it is indeed new.

Looking back at my posts above, I've still got a lot off things to work through and a public forum probably isn't the best place for me to be doing it, so I'm going to back off and sort through the shit.

Keep well and thanks for listening (that's double for you Skeboo) and I hope to talk with you all again some day under better circumstances.

Some of them are preaching...  and some I've heard may even still actively use.  It amazes me sometimes the judgement that goes on here, this guy has specifically posted how he is having a hard time getting his fingers around life with HIV. 

I would think some of us could relate, but maybe I'm wrong.

I've heard people on the forums say addiction is a big problem in the circle here.  Remember, just because you made it back from the brink of hell it doesn't give you any right to cast judgement on those still in it.

Yes, really. Growler recently wrote and then edited to blank posts several posts and it renders a thread unreadable, particularly when that edited post is the OP. It's very bad forum netiquette and it's frustrating for a moderator to be confronted with such shenanigans. The edit button is there to edit spelling and grammar or to perhaps add additional information. It's not for completely removing the subject of conversation.



Growler, I hope you get the help you need. You seem to be a nice guy who is possibly going down a hard road - and I'm rooting for you to get yourself on a different path asap.

Growler - do you enjoy other and less extreme substances to get a happy buzz and a break from the routine?  If drugs are the way to go, maybe a stiff cocktail?  Or a big joint.  Or bake some pot brownies. 

You said you miss sex and seems like you think its too dangerous.  Dangerous for you? For others?  When you see you therapist, mention that and maybe start finding away to get a sex life again.

No preaching or judgments going on here , just telling a guy who landed in the right place for support the unvarnished truth . Any thing else would be enabling . I suspect this thread is a cry for help .

I hope Growler keeps posting , gets the support he needs to deal with his HIV status .

Actually, telling someone the truth and/or your own experience is not judging.  Hearing something that you might not like or want to hear, is not judging -- in fact it is helping.  As a recovering Alcoholic (22 yrs sober on the 29th), I have both been helped and helped others by doing just that.  As Jeff said, not sharing the truth is really just a form of enabling.

And BTW growler, did you share any needles by any chance? (I really DON'T KNOW about Meth, but I read about a needle in your initial post). Maybe you should be tested for Hep C, and the like.

Actually, telling someone the truth and/or your own experience is not judging.  Hearing something that you might not like or want to hear, is not judging -- in fact it is helping.  As a recovering Alcoholic (22 yrs sober on the 29th), I have both been helped and helped others by doing just that.  As Jeff said, not sharing the truth is really just a form of enabling.

I look at this as him medicating himself because of his status, you look at this as purely addiction. 

We won't agree as long as there is this separation of thought.  I'm not going to argue this point in this man's thread any longer for all I know he may never return.  What I do know though is the guy is having a hard time with being HIV+. 

That's what this forum is for, first and foremost.  He said this was his first time doing meth, you guys assumed he meant he's doing it all the time.  Maybe I'm wrong...

At this point it really doesn't matter.  I'm more willing to wait his return so he can tell us which it is.

You'd possibly be correct if he already hadn't disclosed that he'd previously overdosed on heroin and pills. Sorry, that's not a good sign of recreational use, either is the use of a needle for drug administration.

Actually skeeb - according to the OPs first post in this thread - this is the 7th time he has done meth - with the first time being the night he was infected.

At any rate, I agree with you that he is having a hard time adjusting to being positive - and is definitely in need of some support.  Hopefully, he knows that most on here want to be supportive and will be there for him.  I think most of what was said to him on this thread was out of concern for his well being.

Yeah, I agree. A casual and/or recreational user would probably smoke it, not slam it. My ambivalence regarding Tina is too well known for me to rehash anything. If ten (and soon eleven) chapters of The Mancunt Chronicles doesn't make my viewpoint clear enough, nothing will.

Speed's just not my thing, and never was. But as someone with an extensive history of drug use, I'm certainly in no position to offer any judgement on the OP, except perhaps that over-sharing can be difficult to live down. And yes, I see the irony of my last sentence, coming from me and all  ::)

Okay, I did read it incorrectly.  I don't know what I saw initially but for some reason I saw this as his first experience.  I was wrong...

He was diagnosed in 2009, right?  Or, did I read that wrong too?

I'm going to admit, I have been a bit sensitive lately.

Sad post.

Growler, just hoping things work out for you.  If you ever feel the need there are HIV+ / meth support groups and such.  Check with your ASO.

Honestly, I think most of what has been said here has been supportive of the OP.  "Medicating" isn't going to change one's status, nor help come to terms with it.  My drinking was to medicate all sorts of things -- it didn't help, in fact it made everything much worse.

So OP -- please listen to what has been shared here.  We all want to help and we all want you to get to a better place.

Hugs,

One thing that's alarming to me is: didn't the OP say he's rarely if ever done meth and he's injecting it?

I know someone who has a serious meth addiction and he's told me that he draws the line at injecting it because that's too intense even for him. It seems for someone who doesn't partake regularly, such as Growler, injecting it would be beyond intense.

Anyway, I agree with what others have said and hope that he realizes this isn't a good strategy. Nothing wrong with him venting here, that's what the forums are (or should be) for, n'est pas?

Hey Growler,

I hope you remember that there are people here who care about you.  I'm not sure what you are feeling, but I tried to "drug" my way to acceptance of my status and it didn't work.  I hurt a lot of good people in the process of trying to destroy myself.  I hope you can find a place of peace and we will be here for you.

Thanks for the positive messages and the concern. Please be assured that all is ok. I'm not going to go into a deep and meaningful explanation of what was I thinking, instead I suggest that you go back and have a good read of my blatherings and enjoy a good laugh, I did.

To answer a couple of your questions. I am the first to admit I am no poster boy for morality or good behavior. I use drugs, I've had "unsafe sex" and I've ridden my motorcycle WAY too fast in city traffic....and the list goes on; yes, I get off on risk. That said no I am not a REGULAR user of any drug (including alcohol). YES, I have used meth on 7 occasions in the past 3 years, all have been at the invitation of others and yes all were with needles, I have never been offered the opportunity to use it any other way. I don't and wouldn't share needles. I'm Hep C negative. I appreciate that some would say that drug use of any type or to any degree is a problem. I respect your right to your opinion but I ask that we agree to disagree and leave the debate there.

There's a question out there, some of you are thinking it now; is this guy legit or a fucking nut case? In response I'd ask that you check out my post under the "OFF Topic" heading, "Troll Problems". Further I will add... FUCK YES! I am a messed up pain in the arse, but everything I've disclosed on this forum has been the truth.....a big fat embarrassing, cringe-worthy TRUTH. I own it and I shared it and when I read over the shit I've shared I want to take it all back. But fuck it, I'm just as entitled as the next cunt to vomit his bile over the internet.

Got any questions? Ask them, I'll answer.
