Pickin pocks


anatomic pickin pocks / tweaking to long?
What is up with pickin pocks? I have seen people with them all over their arms and torso. Is this when you really know you are addicted? Is it a product of being up too long or getting too high? Has anyone ever had this problem, what is happening?

I don't truly understand how people can continuously do meth. After doing it for a day and maybe the next day, you are so depleted of dopamine, that doing more just makes you feel almost normal. So, why continue? Ok, you do more because your tolerance is up, but it doesn't blast you with another great high, instead, you trip out, get anxious, your neck and head is tight, and you either just want to do more but you can't because you think you are too high already, or you wish you were normal again and could sleep.

It seems like it is a better idea to just get enough for the weekend, do it, and wait til the next weekend. Does anyone know how this can lead to doing it everyday when you don't get that good of a high again until your brain is reupt?

Fornications are quite common in the more advanced stages of meth addiction as well as late stage alcoholism.
Those pesky speed bugs, fibers, Cooties... can be a real annoyance, especially after you pick one off and two more pop up in its place.
I never noticed them until I was around someone who was a picker, it wasn't long until I had 'em too! Avoid pickers!
Sorta like body crabs......except crabs are real.
If you had ever been through acute withdrawl/PAWS, you would know exactly why a meth addict continues to use
You don't wanna know!

Ok I picked but not at things that weren't there( or so I think) but I would pop zits and blackheads both me and my hubby would do it forever! I ended up burning myself twice with a bowl on my shoulder blade cause I was trying to pop a zit on my back while I was smoking on the bathroom sink looking in the mirror! lol.

I'm totally with you and actually really glad that I was the only out one of my friends and boyfriend that felt like that. Cause I was totally okay with just snorting some bumps on the weekends (or my favorite a hot rail).

The boys like to smoke it like every thirty minutes and stay up for 5 to 6 days at a time. I never got it but I never got high like they did when I smoked it either. It kept me up (my limit was two days though) but I never had the euphoric feeling they seemed to get.

I couldn't get why they just couldn't refrain until the weekend but I'm glad because watching how out-of-control they were is what made me start realizing maybe this wasn't something I wanted to keep playing with.

Not necessarily. I was very much addicted and I not one single time ever picked.

For me, how did I know I was hooked- I ran out.
I ran out of dope, couldn't find any, called everybody and their grandmother trying to hook up, begging to hook up- and even crying to hook up.

Yeah, it made sense to me too.
Perfect sense.
We did start out just upping on Friday. Just snorting- nothing "serious" ..........yeah.

Then it got to where we did too much on Sunday and had to do a bump more to get up on Monday.........
still snorting because we weren't real "addicts"

then it went from Friday to Monday to having to have just one more on Tuesday because we still had the work week to get through and our butts were dragging...........

Then it was every day, all day, into the night, and bigger amounts.
Not to get the high we had the first time we used but to get to the somewhat I can walk and make a sentence at the same time versus crashed in bed all day feel.

We did it at first for the high- then we did it just so we could function somewhat normally.
Snorting the whole time-

and then we ran out. and I stayed out. 11 years worth of out.
But yeah, that weekend thing sure sounded good at the time.
