    I have searched the internet and has not found any good information regarding hiding things such as dilated pupils if one ends up binging and has to go to work.
    I feel she has successfully been able to stay in control of talking too much, being coherent and not raising any suspicion, but would still love any insight and ideas of what others may be doing.
    The only thing she's found is wearing colored contacts and taking opiates to come down. my problem is that if she were to take opiates she doesn't think she'd make it through the day.
    She's only screwed up and lost control a few times, but imagines most have at some point and time. Calling in is not an option, as she not only can function and work just fine, but will cause other coworkers to pick up slack if she doesn't make it in.
    Just looking for any tips or tricks other than the two she listed. Not looking for "have some self control" or other comments of that nature, as she obviously knows it's stupid, but stuff happens.

    Mild benzo (Xanax) and coloured contacts usually work for my friends dog when he has to work when up. Chewing gum can hide the gurns. Some say magnesium supplements work but my friend's dog has never tried. Dilated pupils cannot be remedied by anything other than time so my friend's dog has been led to believe.

    I haven't found anything either. Hopefully someone has some good ideas. SWIM wears glasses, the contact trick wouldn't work. I will just have to seek out some Xanax, she's got some leads!
    I don't have the jaw grinding luckily, she actually thinks for the most part, that no one has noticed. If so, they sure aren't saying anything!
    Any further info or ideas from others would be most appreciated.

    If somebody would ask you, just say You is on medication.
    I think nobody would ask what type,and if they were, just say "it's personal".

    Hiding/masking meth

    I would think that bright lights would cause pupils to "shrink".
    I have been known to catch many colds as well.

    SWIM is wondering if there are any special make up brands used?

    SWIM generally uses Physicians Formula or Beauty for all seasons.

    Bright lights will not constrict a dreamer's pupils. That's why the police shine torches in you's eyes.

    for some odd reason swim's pupils do not dialate from any type of drug once theres light in his eyes. is he getting the wrong stuff or is there a certain amount of people that it doesn't affect their pupils?

    Bright lights make swim's pupils shrink up SOMEWHAT normally. They're generally not big unless he's speeding hard though. Swim just finds it hard to sit still sometimes if he's tweaking hard. Cigarettes are your friend. Although, it's hard to do when you work inside...

    the most important thing You can do, is to not fear going to work when You is off gutz, and to not obsess about what other people are thinking of swiy's appearance. unless You is totally cooked, then it will more than often go unnoticed. the second one starts obsessing over their appearance/behaviour, the more likely they start to act like they are on drugs. its uncanny.

    perhaps arrive with an empty red bull can so they can put it down to guarana abuse.

    please dont take opiates to come down. I started off as a speed addict, and ended up a heroin/methadone addict for a further 7 years afterwards. its not a nice journey by all means, so please dont play with fire!!!!

    Controling the paranoia that I think everyone knows. It only makes him nervous. Benzos such as xanax is good too.

    Idk if this is good advice or not... but I dont think that most people would notice dilated pupils, I has dilated and bloodshot pupils every day from his adderall prescription but nobody's ever mentioned anything about his eyes.

    If anyone askes, just tell them You is taking adderall for ADD.

    Sry guys but bright lights will constrict pupils tho to a lesser degree when on drugs. Of coarse retanal damage can occur as the iris is not "shading" retna

    xxdan123xx added 2 Minutes and 24 Seconds later...

    also the two highs altho they build off each other do cancel each others negative notacible effects out. Tweaking or doped up You will probably be noticed

    A quick glance directly into the lights when SWIM sees someone coming kindof normalises pupils (or at least placeboes SWIM into chillax mode)

    Most people have no clue whatsoever what addled people look like, as a female, I will sometimes play the 'period' card, which can account for quietness, sweats, visible anxiety signs, los of appetite, anything can be attributed to rag week. When I use the gross out option, no one wants to know after that.

    I find that only people who have done it themselves can tell , and thats only with people they know fairly well. (apart from foaming gurns and the like)

    Suggesters testers, and it defo takes one to know one.:p

    Before I started doing meth I would have never been able to pick out people that were on it. SWIM still might not be able to all the time unless SWIM knew the person pretty well. SWIM imagines that most normal people would take the answer of taking Day-Quil or something as a good excuse. Just remember that most people can't tell and that it's all in you's head. If You looks and feels good it'll be fine. SWIM always tries to shower, shave, do hair and dress nice. Also I like to spray a little fake tan so as to not look pale.

    The spray tan may be a good idea because there are only a few ways a person will notice something may be up. Pale face, huge pupils, facial expression and behavior. Paleness has to do with health, or a lack of, and human instinct judges others health against their own. So its noticeable. Relax facial expression and head movements. Focus your energy on work and do a good job, just don't get too carried away.
