18 years old I've been clean from dope and PCP for 10 months now when i was dirty i would smoke 10 jars a day and 5 bags not to mention i was taking triple c,s, molly, coke, perks, zannis, k pins, everything ah during my drug phase which im terribly disgusted abut but when will I start to feel normal again? When will I stop having memory problems? When will my immune system become strong again? And when will these headaches stop?

The benzos and PCP are pretty hard on the body and brain. I think you're over the H, but I have a friend who was taking any and everything. It took him 18 months to 2 years to feel 100%. He's been clean 15 years now, and has lived a great life since he got clean. He had to go to meetings 7 days a week to maintain the strength for that first 2 yrs. The brain has this amazing ability to adapt. There's a procedure where half of the brain has to be removed. As the damaged part of the brain becomes less functional, all the info is moved to the other side, but it takes a while. So even if you have permenant damage, there's hope for full recovery. That story helps me. I'm only 6 months clean and am still waiting to feel totally stable. Don't be afraid of the doctor and be honest. 10 months is a huge step in the right direction, keep on keepin on.

10 months clean is something to be extremely proud of! Keep in mind you are doing great and the end will be there, maybe even sooner then you think. It is indeed the Angel dust and maybe also the long term use of benzodiazepines what you are stil recovering from at the moment.

Keep in mind you are doing a fantastic job and you will get there.
