    Do you mind if I ask what kind of substance it is?

    Some require a lot different treatment than others.

    I think thats fantastic you are in admittance with your issue, thats is the first and for most people, the hardest step...admitting you have an issue and seeking help. So good on ya for that.

    I personally have never been in your shoes, but I have seen a lot of people go down hill from drugs.

    Remember that if you keep trying it will get easier. If you give up now, your life will get harder. Suffer for a short time now and enjoy a happier, healthier life in your future.

    The hardest part is the next little while. Stay on track, your life will get better. Guaranteed.

    The term "twacked" is a slang term for using Methamphetamines. I have lost a couple friends to crystal meth -- much harder to kick than crack.

    Is it meth you are trying to kick dude?

    You need the support of others and someone to report to. It's easier to quit when you have someone to face other than yourself.

    I've never tried quitting smoking but I'm sure it would be easier with someone else's help. This might be a different scenario but the point is the same.

    AADAC might be a start, they can get you with other people in the same boat.

    Good luck man, The quicker you quit the sooner you can feel better about yourself. Stick with it!

    Yea everyone goes through something like that man... I remember when I did coke my body reacted something like that for a few days... My advice, go workout, listen to music, and remember that the feeling will eventually pass...

    I'd steer clear of AADAC and maybe check out http://www.aarc.ab.ca/
    Machining, Fabricating, Welding etc.

    Good luck dude. Good to hear that you admit you have a problem, thats the first step. What you really need to do is ditch all your friends that do it, and find some freinds at a gym or at school or something like that, oh and also pot will do wonders for coming off hard drugs.

    Hang in there buddy, I have a friend who is in the same boat as you and even though I've personally never been in that kind of situation I know what its like. My friend went to AADAC and he said it was very helpful but only at the time he was there. While he was there he seemed to be a lot happier. Unfortunately two weeks after his last day at AADAC he started getting high again. A lot of times he breaks down and cries and I feel so sorry for him. I know it must be a very difficult time for you and I would recommend getting help from professionals as well as your friends and family.

    Jib addiction is REALLY tough to break... I have a friend that has been on a rollercoaster with meth for about 5 years now.

    I would recommend some professional help depending on how heavy your usage is.

    Get professional help.

    If you're serious about trying to kick a habbit as seroius as meth, you should go the full 9 yards and then some. I think that's the most important thing... either go balls deep or just don't bother, cause if you're only semi committed to quitting, then you're only a few weeks away from going back.

    If I were you, I'd check myself in to AADAC, get assurance from professionals so you can be confident in the direction you're headed, and then draw on support from your close friends (who don't do meth) and family.

    Also focus on positive gains... like start going to the gym and keep track of the weights that you do. After a few weeks when you start to see gains, it'll be positive reinforcement to keep you clean. And keep busy... cause down time is the worst time for shit like that.

    Good luck dude.

    Maybe look into heading up to Grand Praire, My Uncle was in the rehab up there, and seemed to be a very good one. If you are that motivated, just try to stay busy, and surround yourself with people who are against it, and will help you stay away.

    Good Luck!

    good luck and keep up what you are doing man.

    you'll probably find it a lot easier if you keep in touch with a supportive group of friends and try to avoid people who are still into the drugs, they will drag you right back in.
