  repeated smoked AM-2201 (daily)


I've been smoking herbal incense known to contain AM-2201 for almost a year now. I use to smoke here and there just to have fun, but after a few months I became addicted. I usually quit on and off because of different reasons, low on money, feeling like it's wrong. But for the past couple weeks I've been smoking a metal pipe packed with herbal incense containing AM-2201, and can't stop.

I usually smoke every 20 minutes.

Beginning of high: Feels like I'm happy and lazy. My eyes get extremely dry, and all I wanna to is play a video game.

5 minutes later: High starts to fade already. I wish it lasted longer.

10 minutes later: I begin to have unbearable stomach cramps. All I can do is focus on the pain. It feels as if my intestines are tied in knots. Also having chest pains, headaches, and trouble breathing. Hot showers help to ease the pain.

And then I smoke again to rid myself of the pain, and it works. It's a continuing spiral down. When I'm high I think to myself, 'Why am I doing this? I have priorities, I only have one body to live in and I'm destroying it. This is the last time, I'm done for good.' But as soon as I sober up. My mind is thinking, 'I want it, I want it, just one more bowl pack. It can't be that bad if everyone else in town is doing it, there haven't been any reports...'

Its extremely addictive and hazardous to health. But hard to stop.
