    Does a meth user typically fall asleep when meth wears off, or does he keep going in wake mode afterward? In discussing how long a meth high lasts, SWIM offered the following philsophy: "it lasts until you fall asleep." Agree with that statement?

    SWIM can agree with that. SWIM finds that when he gets tired and it wears off, he can't really get to sleep or if he does, it's not a satisfying sleep. SWIM can do some meth and a few hours later when it starts wearing off, take some Nyquil and get some decent quality sleep. Otherwise SWIM is up for a long time, while still feeling tired and restless. Not fun.

    Swim agrees that aspect can be horrible. Swim enjoys getting her sleep so yes it is a bad effect.

    SWIM is a binge user, so when he does it he tends to OVERDO it alot... It all depends on quantity/quality of what he smoked. SWIM has smoked a gram over 2 days (with one other person) and was up for 3 after that... Of course, SWIM was high as hell when the dope ran out... Dope has a way of making SWIM want more when he is already twacked out of his brain, so he just smokes and smokes and smokes... Last time SWIM did meth was the day after he got out of jail, so he was celebrating...

    By the end of that night, SWIM was so high he couldn't see (could see, but couldn't make eyes focus on small things like writing... Common when SWIM is REAL high) and was dictating letters to his friends in jail to his girlfriend (because he couldn't see to write them himself...), which he decided not to send once he sobered up a bit...

    So yeah... It all depends on the quantity/quality/user. SWIM knows people that can smoke 2 bowls and go to bed, though these are people that have been smoking meth for years and years. SWIM personally cannot go to sleep any time soon after he's smoked. Unless, of course, the dope is bunk... :laugh:

    Swim sounds like my evil twin. That describes the meth madness totally with her. Oh yeah it is the bomb when high, but the high doesn't last forever and swim sees how messed up everything is and well that causes swim to get high to not see reality. Yeah she uses so much she goes blind and stupid. Crazy huh? She goes thru more like 3 gs in a night when on a roll. Then comes down and gets more, the cycle is so hard to get out of.

    She has factors that are bad, but meth makes things worse really. She isn't using good judgement while under the influence.

    3g's a night? Whew! :crazy

    SWIM thinks the most he ever did in a night was only about 1 1/2, and let him tell you... Holy crap.

    SWIM agrees about using to avoid reality... Isn't that why we all use? SWIM's problem is that he binges on EVERYTHING, not just meth... SWIM also agrees that the pattern IS hard to get out of... SWIM's usually ends when he runs out of money.

    Eh, fuck it. We all got problems.

    usually SWIM will have to stay awake and face the comedown for at least a few hours after any effect thats positive wears off. If SWIM smoked a decent bowl of meth at around 9PM, he can coun't on being completely down at about 4 AM, and wont be able to sleep till about 12 noon.

    Although, the next day when swim wakes is always hell. If SWIM doesn't have weed or booze handy it will be a very very hard day for swim, to say the least.

    it really depends the last batch swim had (snorted) the actual high lasted about four hours and slowly died down, gave swim days of the worst insomnia even when swim smoked weed or took codeine. this stuff now swim can actually sleep after several hours soundly (esp with the help of weed) and wake up, get moving......SWIM FEELS TWEAKED AGAIN!!!

    Swim has a bad habit of staying awake for at least a cpl more days even when so tired his body cant function. In the height of highness swim will stay up for @ 1.5 weeks using up to 2 grams a day IV

    SWIM really doesn't have this problem. For her, it is mind over matter. She will smoke a blunt or bong hits and take a few OTC sleeping pills and night night. People let the tweak kick their ass, to SWIM it's silly. Don't fight it, don't tweak out over it, relax and just let sleep come. She has never had an issue. Granted, some nights might only be 2-4 hours, but as long as there is a bit of meth left to get her through her work day, she's good until she gets home. She parachutes about .2 right before work and is golden.

    Smoking weed is probably a really bad idea if SWIY is trying to get rid of the effects of methamphetamine sleep deprivation.

    Weed tends to make paranoia and psychosis 5 times worse for SWIM, and just overall makes him feel quite a bit more disconnected than he already did.

    Of course this varies from SWIMMER to SWIMMER, some find smoking to be useful for taking the edge off.
    Others, such as SWIM, can't really get stoned while tweaked. It tends to worsen his negative tweak effects synergistically. Speed is really effective at cutting through and over powering other substances SWIM takes while tweaked. SWIM finds drinking to be pointless while he is tweaked.

    SWIM enjoys smoking weed and doesn't have the same issues as you talk about nig. She wouldn't bother if it made her feel badly. She just forgot to say "but isn't recommending this for anyone else" lol
    Yep, each and every person's chemistry is different, SWIM is a firm believer. For her, smoking weed helps to just chill out and let herself relax and drift off to sleep. It also tends to get her really super duper high, but for her, in a good way. Not a "stoned" feeling, it's totally different, but awesome for her.
    Not trying to get rid of sleep deprevation effects at all, SWIM not only enjoys the combo, but it helps in getting her to sleep in general. She doesn't stay up for days and days on end, she's got to "bring home the bacon" so to speak, goes to work each and every day! :)
    SWIMs bf is totally amazed at her ability to get to sleep. He will stay awake easily 24 hours after his last hit! SWIM can smoke a bowl of great shit, but if her body says it's time to sleep, she does. She hates when that happens, such a waste of product! lol
    SWIM agrees w/drinking, totally pointless cuz she can't even catch any sort of booze buzz at all. It usually just kinda sours her stomach, so she doesn't bother! Going out is super cheap that way! lol

    I haven't seen you guys make mention of employing benzos to sleep. SWIM always used to use those to come down off e, and even now SWIM dosed myself a little too high (.3g) IV of MA and was rocking way too hard.... this is after IV-ing 1.5g sinece yesterday (the FIRST TIME swim touched meth... never smoked or railed it, went straight into a .25g IV)...

    long story short, i was tweaking like an hour ago (as youll notice my OD post on the board)... i took one rivotrl (clonazepam/klonopin) and now i'm falling asleep. SWIM is going to IV a .20 just niow to hopefully wake me up a bit more and keep me going through the morning without getting that rush...

    natedogg added 1 Minutes and 22 Seconds later...

    but SWIY is looking for the best way to comedown (off almost any stimulant), benzos are the way to go. Thank god i've got a script for clonazepam (and my mom and my dad..miracle drug). every dealer should keep oxys and clonazepams stocked for when shit goes bad or someone has too heavy a trip...

    Swim also has a bad habit of trying to stay awake way too long by just doing more & more shit...Results in swim passing out usually around day six right after doing bong rips or a fat line - swims friends think its hilarious.

    My snake it seems, doesn't have any trouble falling asleep at all. In fact he usually needs only about 2-3 hours of sleep and will wake up feeling recharged.

    swim only sleeps when his body shuts him down, and he always says he never falls asleep in strange places however he has woke up in several. do you think he pushes the envelope?

    yes, it's not nice to wake up in strange places.

    With any of the prescription stimulants SWIM's tried, SWIM tends to stay awake / wired for double the time she feels the desirable effects. SWIM has been on dextroamphetamine, dexmethylphenidate, methylphenidate, and mixed amphetamine salts. The same also happens with cocaine for SWIM. She never sleeps during the comedown unless there are benzos.
