DAY 1 to 50


Index Oopsies 

 DAYS 1-50 | 51-100 

This index has gone way off track. I simply thought it not important for too long. Now it is going to be a nightmare to work out and get up to date.

Although it is now almost five months since I came off the drugs. It is 1:30am and I am not sleeping. But that is probably more to do with excitement. And, to be brutally honest, taking a little too much of my new ADhD medicine I am experimenting with. That is kind of silly. I know what addiction is, and I know what crystal meth does. And this stuff is similar to crystal meth in a lot of ways… But I have been pretty focused and creative today. I took the prescribed amount and didn’t notice much. So I took one or two of the larger (longer acting) pills too. Seems to work well, but admit to having over done it. Don’t think having sixty MG’s on the first day was on the psychiatrists wish list when she stated “5mg for first three days, then 10mg for three and then 20mg for the remainder of the time until I see you in twelve days.”

I am going to be honest with her about this too. Sam McBride and others from higher up in Wellington Addict DisServices are watching closely. If I go and screw this up I will be stuck with somewhat annoying ADhD tendencies for years to come. Being honest with the mother of my daughter when suffering bad withdrawal mental abilities (mainly due to sleep deprivation – thanks to Sam McBride not helping with withdrawal prescriptions…) led to the mother of my daughter racing off to family court and having all contact between me and daughter removed. My daughter was, for years, the only reason I bothered to put any effort into my life. Guess she has done me a favour in some ways. I do not see myself as a useless pain riddled opiate addict any more. One day soon I may even be able to look in the mirror with real honest respect for the whole of me. 

That’s pushing it. I would be happy enough with a quick hand job from serenity.

  • First incident with Community Alchohol and Drugs services


    • Diarrhoea drug, Loperamide hydrochloride, ideas
    • Daily report including rat trap stuff
    • First Narcotics Anonymous meeting
      I would be full if shit if I didn’t do what I preached. N.A. is a consumer lead provider, so keeping open mind is important

DAY FIVE on way to N.A. meeting

  • Narcotics AnonoMouse literature filled out without permission, but with clarity, detail and honesty. So, sue me. It was good fun.


    • Narcotics AnonoMouse visit
    • Start looking into my history in particular the relationship of addictive nature of adrenaline sports
      (I was / am, and know people whom are / were. Some are dead – chose the wrong time to jump)
    • Self hypnosis to try sleep
    • Footnotes of extreme sport videos from some people I used to hang with

MAYBE I need saboxone…

  • Hanging out, think I might try G.P for some stuff to stop the withdrawal effects from killing me (namely the effects are bad enough I kill myself really… Don’t think the shakes and all that would kill me outright. Yet)
  • First signs of visual disturbances
  • First handwriting test image
  • Managed to eat a single muffin and keep it in a little while. Any progress is good progress

  • Drawing test
  • Food intake
  • The cost of methadone on the street

DAY SEVEN, evening

    • Ate heaps of food, kept it in (and down)
    • Fifth NA meeting in four days
      Really just reached by choice – I chose to ignore all bills, all druggy friends, all problems, all car issues. By ignoring I mean totally ignoring. Was beautiful. Until two mornings later when explaining my mental health took precedent over bills to the budget people….

  • Have not left house for a whole day

Day twelve, evening…

    • N.A Meetings, good but mouth slow, brain fast
    • Have to hit rock bottom to bounce?
    • Police humour – just don’t call them gay
    • Recovering addicts are all un diagnosed mental cases

I not your fckn clown… Day 12

      • Slept an hour in 36. Stoked.
      • Loperamide and Banana at 3am
      • Ooops – It is day 13, not twelve. Starting to go Madness.
      • Think I have a discovery about withdrawal symptoms LACTIC ACID.
      • Talked with medical GP about lactic acid, he swtiched off and started to think of ways to restrain me whilst getting a big shot of something special into my bum. Fucken typcial.

Not pretty reading, but unedited from original graspings at sense. A record. Going insane basically. Lack of sleep and not being able to consume food;

DAY 13 – All the children are insane.

  • In internet shop taking stock. It is Friday, my daughter is due in a few hours and I am fried.
  • It is not the physical aspects. It is mental. And it is getting problematic.
  • Filled in an ADHD test. Got a score over fifty. 37+ suggests strong adult ADHD. Hahahahahaahahahahaha


      • His name is Zopiclone and he comes in blue 7.5mg tablets
      • Waiting in chemist is better therapy than N.A!
      • More annoyed talk about the state health provider.


    • Slooow morning
    • Where has all the sleeping pills gone, the bottles are all empty
    • 15 hours sleep from 4pm till 7am though, oh yeeeeaaaahhhh baby!
    • Think I may have frightened my Doctor. He saw me yesterday, maybe for the first time.

DAY 13 or 14


      • Try to start fights
      • Can’t give a shit about others problems
      • Hit my daughter when she hit me
      • Not in control


  • Feel okay, but a wreck. Going quite insane with daughter around. Not good. Not good at all.
  • Arm feels sunburnt, but it isn’t. Why is cellphone covered with blood?
  • Typing makes no sense to me. It may to you. Read with care. It’s ugly.
  • Through all the haze my daughter is my earth
  • Maybe listening to loud punk and Linkin Park covers of Depeche Mode is not the way to go.

DAY FOURTEEN – Someone shoot me, quick

    • Just cannot be bothered any more. DRUGS. Now,  left arm. Chur bro.
    • Keep your friends, stay on the gear
    • ADHD, tired, losing sense of humour
    • N.A bitterness. Community is all shit. Everyone is out for themselves
    • Self harm practise
      (quite insane, but coming down.,..)

I think I feel sanity returning. Shame the weekend with my daughter was a confused, angry, violent, psychopathic mess. Welcome back. If I ever find the strength to revisit this period again it will shock a little. Bloody idiot drug detox people should have just given me some help in the first instance. Jumping off over 50mg’s of methadone a day and trying to do it with nothing is just insane. Don’t do it. Get some sleepers. You need to sleep every third night.Properly. You have been warned. Being awake on amphetamines for two weeks is about the same. Try it. 

Day Fifteen of sweet fuck all

  • I gave up drugs for this? Fuck, give me a hit….

      • WHAT COMES FIRST, Community or Problem?
      • Recoverunities based on hippy communes or cyber sex groups
      • Are we really consumers?
        Equality lead recovery? Peer to peer recovery model (TM)

          • Think I may have a stomach ulcer or something
          • Sleep issues again
          • NZFiend has a bath. It makes front page of local paper

I am going to change my face, this one doesn’t belong here

  • Slow this morning, got some real sleep (two hours) but maybe clonedine patch making me “dizzy”?
  • Why doesn’t this N.A. guy just move? And how will disharmony effect peer to peer recovery model?!
