    Almost two years ago I was a meth addict. I've been clean ever since. I used for almost two years but no one ever would have guessed, other than my weight loss. I didn't have sores on my skin and my teeth are straight, white, and clean and although I was painfully addicted I never let my bills go unpaid or sold my body to get dope. I know all that is kinda off-topic, I just didn't want anyone to think I am some kind of sick-looking-prostitute-monster like some addicts are portrayed.
    But what I really wanted to say is how sad this story made me feel. It is disgusting, and something I would have never in a million years done. But I really do feel sad for anyone who has an addiction so bad that they have to resort to something like this just to try and feel good. I think I would rather be dead than this far gone.

    Some hard-core methamphetamine addicts will do anything to get high, including collecting and drinking the urine of other users.

    Police in New Mexico recently discovered meth users running "urine extraction" labs, reported Minnesota's news station WCCO.

    The first indication of the new trend came when deputies opened up a smelly rented storage locker where they found 50 1-gallon jugs of urine. Police told the owners to throw away the contents, which made them physically ill. (more at link)

    Hey Narla we meet again -recovering addict here, too.

    Congrats White Rain on your two years. I hope you can continue to stay clean. Be very proud of your accomplishment.

    I personally believe EVERYONE has some type of addiction, whether it be drugs, alcohol, eating, shopping, gambling, etc etc.

    ETA: URINE FOR SALE..... CHEAP!

    Narla I never would have guessed you as an addict, good on you for believing in yourself enough to give it away, it takes a lot of courage and self confidence, you are a special person.

    My sister was a meth user for 2 years also... but her meth addiction led to cancer in her arm, which was then amputated trying to save her life. It didn't work. She died within 1 year of diagnosis. She left behind a little boy, who I'm now raising. I commend all of you who have been able to kick the habit because I know it's not easy.

    And, Poco, I agree... I think all of us have some kind of addiction. Some are just more socially acceptable than others but they all serve the purpose of avoiding our feelings.

    Recovering addict here as well with the same relatively high bottom from an oustide-looking-in perspective. Always had a job, never had to sell my body, etc...but still did plenty of lying, cheating, stealing and degrading myself in other ways to get what I needed. I aways just feel grateful and blessed that I didn't go as low as some others because, quite frankly, I believe I could have.

    I think bottoms for addicts have a nurture component. I grew up in an addicted family where the unspoken message was "As long as you do the things you're supposed to (go to work, don't get arrested, get decent grades, look presentable, etc...etc...) it's okay to use as much as you can handle. So it was always important to me to appear to have things together on the outside even when I was dying on the inside...kind of like a double-life.

    Congrats to everyone who has touched that darkness and chosen a different path! I still struggle with wanting to use so I am truly grateful for each day clean.

    Congrats to ALL of you who have beat their demons! I'm an addict in recovery as well but my drugs of choice came from a Doctors prescription pad.

    It is not easy but keep on keeping on!

    I would also like to add my congo-rats to those of you who have beat your addictions. I have gone through addictions with many of my friends and still think of many of those who no longer needed a friend (or so they thought) once they became best friends with their addiction.

    My best friend is going through this right now with her husband. He is a roofer and apparently "all the roofers on his crew do it." He seems to have been clean for some time but I still worry for their whole family. He said he just wanted to be able to stay up to work those 14 hour shifts so he could make money for their family.... :(

    I am addicted to cleaning, at least that is what dh says, I stay up on an average 2 to 3 hours after everyone goes to bed cleaning. I cant rest if I know the house is a mess. It might seem funny but it literally keeps me up at night thinking about it. Im known to get up and clean in the middle of the night, quietly of course though to not wake up my daughter or husband.

    Congrats on the rehabilitated addicts,I worked in the financial offices of a rehab center and with so many going in and out of the door only to come back multiple times its nice to see those who are committed to it and work hard to stay sober :)

    I used to be addicted to cleaning. However, by the looks of my house, it is very evident that I am now cured. ;)

    Many of you have come forth and stated your addictions and rehabilitations from those (kudos to all that have overcome those!) but I guess I still wonder about the persons who would resort to drinking urine (yuck) to get the high? I sort of understand the alcoholic who would clean out the cupboard to drink the last dose of alcohol in the house, but dang, I can't for the life of me understand drinking urine? Anyone have any insight? (Trying to understand addiction, I am not trying to cause any fights here.)

    Desperation? I am not an addict but I can sure understand desperation.
    I have Aspergers Syndrome and OCD and panic disorder. I can remember when stuck in a world of never ending pain in my head I might do anything to get it to stop. Yes, even drink Urine if someone told me it would stop the pain in eyes from sunlight or the stuck thoughts that were exploding over and over in my head. I can under stand desperation. Not sure I could actually drink urine but I can remember the feelsing of absolute depserpation for the pain to stop.
