i need help giving up coke. I always say that's enough but after a few days I lose my motivation really easily. I remember how good it makes me feel and makes me think I don't want to give it up, but just calm down. In summary I don't really want to give it up but i know I have to because I am getting into debt and doing more and more. On reflection i hate myself for doing it but im in 2 minds after a few days.My friend was able to quit because his gf gave him an ultimatum. I work in a nightclub n when I see ppl on it and ppl I no who deal it that's it for me. How can I phase it out make myself really want to quit?
Giving up coke ain't easy but it is very possible. I recommend you get help from a support group like Narcotics Anonymous or from a private addiction's counselor. It may require you to change your playmates and your playgrounds. The temptation to use can be very strong unless you do. A group like NA or a counselor can help you understand the addiction and teach you the tools to stay clean in the face of temptation.

This is a serious matter and needs to be addressed. You don't have to go down this road any longer. It is a dead end road of ultimate hardship and possible death. Please seek help.
I agree with Laurie,it is possible to give up coke,i admit not easy,but not impossible.You need to WANT to give up,if your not fully determined then you wont suceed,you have to want to give it up for you and also the right reasons,getting yourself into debt and also losing everything aroung you and everyone should make you want to stop but i know it is easier said then done.If you really want to quit you will have to change your lifestyle,your friends and possibly your job,seen as your line of work entices you to use.
You will need to attend N/a or the like for you to get through it and also to help you to cope with staying clean and what to do not to relapse.
It all sounds impossible when you read it,but i promise you,you will make the best decision if you do decide to come clean,the feeling of greatness it makes you feel is short lived and will only make you want more and more,you think your in debt now??? If it takes the same toll as it does with most ppl,you'll have nothing left but yourself if even that at the end of it all.It will be worth it to get the help you need to quit,your body is worth more then snorting that crap into it,believe me i know.You can do this,put your mind to it,be strong and you'll do it.Wishing you all the best through this.Keep us posted let us know how you're doing,this site is a great place to get the encouragment and help you need to get through addictions like this and noone judges what you do or how you feel... Please do try get help,it will be so worth it.
I would say to take it when u feel you need it ALOT, but everytime you take it, take a little less. In the mean time, if that dont work, still do it but smoke some cannabis as an alternative feeling. Since its not addictive(cannabis) when the coke is done, just dont smoke the weed.
