    do any funny monkies have any bad or annoying habits they tend to engage in while using? either while high or comming down?
    sketchy monkey was just curious if anyone else does. she thought about asking this question while doing what she simply cannot avoid doing while comming down which is picking at her eyes for mucous non stop which is supposedly called 'mucous fishing syndrome'. she started doing this before she ever really started tweaking, but of course the eyes get dry while using thus causing THE most perfect opportunity to pick. its embarrassing but she loves the way it feels peeling across her eyeballs.
    Gross. she knows. especially when she does it hours on end and her eyes get puffy, red as demons and very sore and absolutely disgusting looking. monkey does not know how to control such impulses.

    Surfing for porn, masturbation, then next thing ya know you've been up for five days. Always promising myself "I'll sleep tonight for sure", only not to again.

    I do not miss those days at all! Tweaker behavior seems much worse while not using.

    Swim has a bad habit of surfin porn, TRYING to masterbate, and search for girls to talk to on the internet who are high also to just talk.

    :( swim wastes lots of time for nothing trying to do all the above.

    ^^^ Tell me about it! I beat my dick like it owes me money and not getting off for days. Shit hurts after awhile. Off course when orgasm is finally achieved, it is like no other! Possibly the best carnal feeling in my life! That's about the only thing I miss TBH.

    It's so true about feeling as though I'm wasting my life away. I gave it up years ago because I honestly got tired of being sick and tired. It helps it is hard to find in my location though.

    I carpet surf and it gets awful. When I was still using I would spend a day and a half crawling around my carpet looking for every tiny piece of shard when I ran out. By the time I had enough to make a line and I had tested it to make sure it wasn't just carpet junk I would have completely come down. So instead of actually doing the thing I had searched for for hours I would just brush it off the tray and go to sleep.
    What a waste of good tweak time. But once I had started I couldn't stop the compulsion to look and search was overpowering.

    i feel a constant need to put my fingers on my wrist or neck and feel my pulse. even if im not overamped and have a pretty normal bpm, they keep going back to those places as if drawn by magnets. Idk what im even thinking it will accomplish. Like if my heart suddenly did randomly stop or something, i think i'd know it was happening, whether my fingers happened to be on my pulse at that exact moment or not.... and yeah, porn/masturbation/compulsive downloading of clips i barely even watch. Just an OCD/hoarder mentality, with a little bit of sex fiend thrown in for good measure :p

    I have the need to put my hair up then down over and over. I also go threw a roll of paper towels in a day from cleaning the kitchen counters. And I vacuum around 3 times a day and it has to be done in a order only I can do. My husband thinks its my ocpd maybe but dope makes it 20times worse not dirty home here pure clean 2900sq feet of clean clean clean.

    I am the same way. It has gotten to the point where it is a sober compulsion as well. At limes I hate it, but it is one of the few ways I can calm my anxiety. In reality any detail oriented task would work. Carpet surfing isn't exactly widely accepted as a normal activity, and I wish I could find a relaxation method that I didn't have to hide or be embarrassed about. My "compulsive meditation technic" has graduated from carpet surfing to full blow constant scanning. I don't feel the need to actually pick up every "shard", but my eyes constantly scan everything for them. Scanning floors, counters, other peoples clothes, and my own clothes aren't the worst part. Try driving down the road and not being able to take your eyes off the dash, floor mats, or anything but the road. It is a necessary evil I suppose, because if I don't surf/scan I pick. Not actually at anything specific; just more of a tactile surf of my skin, clothes, furniture (if I happen to be sitting or laying down).
    My bf actually gave me a "surfing tool set": pointed tweezers, a headlamp with adjustable brightness settings, a set of small trays, and two clear boxes with attached clear lids. He realizes that this activity relaxes me, and wants me to be as safe about it as possible. I was straining my eyes to the point that I would have migraines. I would pick at "shards" with my fingers until I wore my nails to the quick, and I would get extremely upset if I dropped/lost my "surf" out of my hand. He doesn't like that I cant stop (even when I took a six month break from doing dope), but he allows it as long as I use my kit and don't get caught by non-users.
    The only truly negative side of this compulsion is that the skin on my knees and elbows is now so dark that they look bruised all the time. I exfoliate, moisturize, and wear long sleeves/pants, but there seems to be no way to avoid/reverse this darkening of my skin.
    It does help to know that there are others with this difficulty (even if not to my unfortunate extreme).
    Any tips or advice would be welcome.

    I spent hundred of hours scrapbooking! I would cook dope, f**k the air outta my ol lady, shower and thenscrapbook for 5 hours before I even left my hotel room! I have boxes of boxes of finished scrapbooking pages! It does me no good now cause seeing how I went to prison, got out and managed to stay away from the dope its really hard for me to look at them and see what a spun out lil tweeker I really was. And to think I thought even after 4 years of cooking and shooting dope that I was still the baddest! Phew.....that's too much! Glad I've buried that addiction! I think really I just don't like commin down and I refuse to cook dope ever again so I just steer clear of dope and stick to trusty ole' opiates! They don't make me stay up for weeks, wreck my car trying not to hit the neighborhood shadow pets or pluck all my eyebrows off and swear they look good! Jesus take the wheel.....I was a hott ass mess!

    When tweaked, I have an insatiable and undeniable urge to pop my ears as often as possible. It's annoying as hell and my ears/jaw hurt something awful after a day or two of that nonsense...

    It's not really a nuisance or bad habit, but I always put my music on and start to read. It's mostly annoying because I never accomplish anything I planned to. Last time I slammed I read two Stephen Hawking books while listening to Tool. Learning is never a bad thing though so I don't take it as a loss of time, just not what I originally wanted to do.

    I fix things that aren't broken...i end up not fixing the things that are broken...or tweak my perfectly working computer. I start with one mission in mind normally getting on DF or downloading an unseen movie. Facebook seems to bore me, and TV sucks, so i "tweakify". For hours i will be on something that would take me 30 minutes sober. I also used to pick at my face as well, now i gotta keep the tweezers hidden from myself or else i get STUCK! It takes me 4 hours to drink a glass of juice or tea, even though i'm thirstier than all get out. I start one task, two tasks, nine tasks and finish NONE!

    Now, being a weekend warrior i don't get the tweak-a-fects as i used to. I still however find myself over holding things...meaning if i had a feather (random example) I will hold on to that feather as if it were going to slip or fall out of my hands and shatter. but gripping things tighter than JB Weld always ends up making my wrists hurt, and my fingers cramp up, which pisses me off when i find a good porn because while 95% of me is 27...my hand is that of an arthritic 90 year old...i guess its time to invest in a fleshlight!

    Apart from the obvious online search for quality adult entertainment....

    Driving fast; buying lots of magazines(XXX and PG); driving my car around with mates for 8 hours just cause; pulling apart electronics; and playing facebook poker all night

    My 2 roommates are brothers and when we smoke they talk to me nonstop. I know lots of people talk more when using but these 2 are extreme. Kinda like an annoying drunk talk but they have lots of energy and never stop or let me say anything. The one roommate talked to me nonstop for 22 hours once. And the other brother talked to me 16 hours nonstop last weekend. What was I doing while they talked? About 50% of the time I would clean with my back turned to them hoping they would stop. The other 50% I surfed the net, read all kinds of interesting things, wrote some emails, and play games on my phone. All the while, they are talking to me, without pausing for hours on end. Lol. Anyway, I'm smoking without them right now(5-25-13 @ 7 AM EST) If anyone else is bored and wants to email or text about this stuff send me a message.
