robotussin, ugh. - November 1st 2009, 01:02 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So i've been taking robotussin for 3 weeks now, and it's been everyday straight on, i've been on a trip ride you could say, last weekend i was on a 6oz bottle and 3 pills and was on weed, i was so messed up. and i got two of my friend into, i dont think their addicted to it, but i crave it like eveeryminute of the day, but this past thursday, i went over board, i had about 3 6oz bottles, and i was at a dance at my school, and i was so fucked i had to leave with some people then i came back at like 10 cause my mom was going to pick me up, but then i was sketched out to the max.
so i was sitting outside the school around 9:50pm, and my vice principle was talking to my friends and asked if they had a drive home and i was like yes my moms coming then he realized something was wrong and told me to come with him, and then i told them i was just on a pill and someone slipped me it and then the cop was like one thing of ecsasty wouldnt do this to you, waht else did you take and i was like that was it, and then he was like talking about a drug test and i was like robo and weed, and then he was like i see and asking me all these questions, and now im suspended for a couple days my mom has to go to the principle office on monday and figure things out, im so embrassed about my addiction i have bruses everywhere from people punching me cause i said i was so numb and to punch me as hard as they could i know lame but it happened, then they were telling my mom to take me to the hospital and shit , and then when she walked me to the car she was like im not taking you to the hospital and shit, and i was like wth? , and ugh i dont know it was bad so i got home and mom was like sit on that chair and then like 20 mins later she was like go get pjs on and so i did, i was seeing so many things, and i could think straight then she was like go lay in my bed so i was up all night, i could eat anything and i still havent, and ugh i dont know i'm so confuseed , and i can't see straight i still kindof feel the robo, but i dont know , and i could really use it right now, but im grounded and im not even aloud on the computer, i sneaked on because my mom went out to bars so ...
im sorry this is long and i dont know what im asking but how can i just stop everything and be someone else or something im just sick of how i'm addicted to everything, my mom thinks i have bipolar because of my dad, and i have no clue who i am anymore,
please just give me addvice in someway.
i dont think i can cope anymore.
i just want to lay in my bed forever ,
not face the world but that isnt reality.

I can't say I know how to beat it. I can't. I understand the psychological pull towards it though. The best I can say is just fight your urge to buy it, because of you have it - you'll use it. Thus, try to avoid the urge of having it within reach. I've only tripped out twice in the past two months though (I'm more of an alcoholic), but remember being the store where I bought it and my mind telling me to just go get some more, that I need it. I fought the urges and left because I knew - if I had it, I would use it. So, basically concerning DXM best I can say is fight your psychological (there's no physical addiction to it that I'm aware or heard of) pull to it.

i used to be on robitussin for a month straight everyday. tripping and everything, it was the first drug i touched. i was drinking 4 bottles a night and that shit was mentally addicting. id stay up till 5am wake up 7am go to work, come back at 2pm sleep till 8 pm then drink it at like 9-10pm. i ended up stop taking it when i puked for the first time and felt like shit. i felt really stupid for about 2 months but i did it. you should stop now before it becomes worse.

Once you start weening yourself off it it's really not that hard. I used to take triple Cs constantly, but after stopping at will it wasn't that hard. It's probably just more of a psychological dependence. After everything you just went through, do you find it disturbing that you still want to robo trip? You're stressing your mom out and you're also getting in major trouble in school and with your friends and doing idiotic things when you're high like having people punch you. If you keep going down this road you will ruin your life in so many ways the possibilities are endless. Stop now and remember the consequences and ordeal you just went through and evaluate how much you really want to keep living this lifestyle. You have too much ahead of you. If you were to die tomorrow you shouldn't have any regrets.

i always thought that it had to get worse before it got better,
but what if there wasnt a better,
what if i just kept getting worse,
and then one time i died,
ugh i don't know,
i've been trying to stay away from it,
but all i can do is try,
im only suspended for a week then 3 inschool detentions,
but it's better then nothing i suppose.
