Anyone else /brainfog/ here?
After years of drug absue (mainly weed and RCs, but also pretty much any other major drug), isolation and pointless media consumption I feel literally dumb. My memory turned to shit, I have trouble imagining stuff and doing mental arithmetics, constantly stressed and even have trouble speaking and finding words.
Is there a way to reverse this or am I doomed for life?
I've spent about 5 years doing drugs (weed, mdma, coke, lsd, shrooms, mescaline, the list goes on). Every now and then I'll feel some brainfog. If I cut back on my consumption for a while and do some mental exercises (arithmetic, visualizing 3d objects, creating plans, solving puzzles etc) the fog will start to subside.
I speak too fast, unclear and flounder constantly. Sometimes stutter and forget the words for the most basic things. It sucks and is the reason I prefer not speaking at all.
I'm clean for 2 months now. Still drink and smoke, but no K, weed and RCs.
I hope this works for me. I started doing these brain exercise games on my phone.
smoking weed makes you retarded. I'm saying from own experience
Of course weed fags would argue otherwise. So whether believe it or not depends on you. No one would care if weed fags becomes dumber
That's pretty individual. I know people who smoke weed all the time but you wouldn't believe them if they'd tell you. Others suffer from classic stoner syndrome pretty heavy. You can only know for yourself if it's too late.
A. I don't think 2 months is long enough for drug symptoms to completely clear up
B. You need to quit drinking and smoking, too.
C. Even after all that, you still might have some brain problems the rest of your life.
If someone could have showed me how drugs could fuck me up like they have, I don't think I would have done as much. Still, teenage me was a retard, so I might have done it anyway. Oh well.
Anyway, the sooner you kick all that shit out of your life, the better. Try to eat healthy sometimes, and be patient. It will get better, trust me.
>normies are fucking terrified of drugs that they refuse to do any real research of them
>guys like OP are just stuck wondering if it's them, the drugs or a combination of both
Quitting everything is easier said than done though. Drugs are pretty much the only fun thing in my life. I can't even enjoy anime anymore sober. But that's just me whining, eventually quitting it's the only way. Or ending up a complete sperg.
OP, I had a serious stint of depression (5 years) combined with copious drug abuse and addicition (weed, benzos and etizolam) with a really low weight, I had a servere vitamine deficiency and extreme low vitamine B12 on a fiber level.
I got that checked out, getting injections now for certain vitamines and I take LDN (low dose naltrexon), stopped eating gluten, lactose, soj (fuck eating something that contains 99% female hormones) and a shit ton of other crap like sugar and high corn fructose syrup.
I basically recovered by eating healthy, working out and stopped doing massive amounts of drugs. Currently working on my masters at uni so.. yeah, it might work out for ya.
I haven't really used my brain to it's full potential, I drowned it in alcohol for five years (around 30-40 drinks a week/drinking every other day) since it was the only thing that felt good to me and helped me cope with my shitty life. It felt like compensation, if I wasn't getting affection from a relationship then I deserve to atleast feel invigorated and emotional relief through the combination of alcohol and music. I am not as smart as the younger version of me who was more academically motivated.
