Used crank as a 22 year old but it ruined my sleep habit so I swore it off.

Years later at 55... Amazing sex but incredible with GBL. Two days writhing in extacy like I was 16. Eventually the meth took over, hard-ons even with Viagra became inconsistent. Finally the GBL took over.

Things were spinning out of control and I had a beautiful kid to raise, wife was co-dependent enabler but did not have addictive personality like me.

A few things I learned coming off GBL... Gradually reducing dose over a few days and subbing with benzodiazepines and cycling off those, Gatorade, 10 mil vitamin b12 injected into the muscle every other day, all seem to help.

It screws with my heart. Thirty years of binge drinking set the stage. But in the year of living dangerously my heart got 30% too big because it was working too hard. So hidden dangers... Read all you can... Peace out.
