I’d love to tell you all about my “one-time-experience” with the prescription drug Adderall.
The fact of the matter is that my first time was only just the beginning to the addiction I suffer from today.
The memory I have is nothing more than the palm of a friend’s hand, reaching out to me. There it was; the orange, oval-shaped pill that started it all.
I accepted and chewed the gross, candy-flavored(ish) Adderall down until it was nothing.
About thirty minutes had passed when I noticed the difference in my thinking. The obsession of every little thought was no longer a problem.
It was like my mind went from a mess of loose papers, to being organized and stored away in a file cabinet.
adderall addiction stories
When I was seeking help for my own addiction to Adderall, I found hundreds of personal stories of addiction online, posted by people who had suffered and recovered.
I bookmarked the best stories, so I could come back and read them when things got tough (and. boy, they did).
These stories inspired me, educated me and gave me the courage to quit and stay clean. I owe a lot to my anonymous friends.
Yesterday, I went back to read some of the stories again.
Thought I’d share the best of them here, since this is a mobile-friendly website and most of the sites that published these stories aren’t easy to read on a phone.
Listed below are excerpts from a few of the Adderall addiction stories I found helpful, organized by the issues that Adderall abusers often have to deal with.
