“I am caught in a vicious cycle, and I hate who I am.” – Addyslave

I started taking Ritalin around 2000.

I liked it, but I did not abuse it.

When it stopped working, I simply stopped it. No problem.

A few years later, I was prescribed Adderall.

Same thing. Once it stopped helping, I stopped it. No problem.

I went back and forth for years, mostly without it.

I wasn’t addicted to it, and found it useless after awhile. Stopped it.

It wasn’t until 2007, that I developed an addiction to Adderall.
