Ritalin didn't cause the addiction, but it may have given you a taste for the amphetamines which predisposed you to having an addiction. The big question now is do you want to get clean? The meth is serving a purpose in your life, you are medicating with it to address some sort of problem. This is the wrong way to address the problem though. Please get some help for your addiction and learn new and better ways to deal with your issues. You sound like you are ADD or ADHD and that is why you are using the meth. There are safer, healthier ways of dealing with this disorder. Please consider getting help for your addiction and getting on the proper medication for this illness.
