    I've recently become addicted to fake cocaine... I literally only tried it 3 weeks ago and since that first weekend I've been taking a gram pretty much every day. But the side effects are really getting to me, both mentally and physically. I've been having extreme headaches, eye pain. throat pain, nose pain, ear pain, back pain. And I'm also becoming paranoid and very anxious, and I wake up feeling terrible.
    I actually think I'm physically addicted now and really can't see myself stopping but I really need to because I'm running out of money.

    You'll just have to force yourself to quit. What legal coke is it? Charge? I tried some legal ecstasy on new years and it was the best night of my life.

    Only problem with these legal highs is they haven't been properly studied and researched so we don't know how dangerous they are to humans. You're actually better off taking the illegal variety as their effects have been well studied, only problem with that is that they are often cut with other substances and thus more dangerous.

    Why can't politicians realise prohibition isn't working?

    at least your not addicted to actual coke. thats a bad road to go down as i recently discovered.

    go to your GP and get help, if you are physically addicted there is nothing people on the internet can do.

    Have no Idea, you'll have to do the research. Often the sellers of these legal highs don't publicise what's in them

    No idea what it is.It's like coke but just acts a lot slower and way way longer. The comedown is in a different league, and it really messes my head up!

    Doctors I think. If you have already tried to stop and you can't. Legal highs are often basically the same substance as their illegal counterparts only switcheroo-ed a bit so as to make them not illegal. That's my understanding anyway. So being hooked on a legal high can be just as dangerous and difficult to come off. I'll never understand why people mess around with drugs which are addictive.

    What's the difference? Addiction is addiction (granted, a smoking addiction isn't as debilitating as, say, heroin), and suffering from extreme side-effects is unpleasant no matter what your addiction is. This isn't a competition to see who's had the worse addiction

    legal substances are fairly easy to get hold of, i.e the internet.

    getting in coke dealers cars as a 19 year old female can be quite worrying.

    And yet you done it anyway? We weren't discussing the secondary dangers, just the addiction.

    still do, unfortunately.

    sorry, I meant everything that comes with the addiction, such as dangers, criminality ect.

    also, as we still dont know what it is the OP takes there is no way of knowing if they are physically or just mentally addicted, which would make a big difference.

    Hey ya, yeh not bought any since Thursday (yesterday). The comedown from this is alot worse than MDMA even. It's so long and its hard physically whereas mdma is a lot shorter and mostly mental and you don't have as many random side effects. Gotta battle through this weekend. Enjoying the coke?

    There are some legal highs that are unlike anything illegal. Heard of MDPV for example- It's what I suspect is part of this current Research chemical I'm engaging with. It's active from like 10mg. The paranoia and anxiousness it causes is on a completely different level. It can keep you up for days on end from less than 500mg. Basically I need to stop or I could die.
