Meth damage?

What sort of lasting damage would I likely have from 3 years of methamphetamine use?
I never smoked or injected, only took orally. Over these 3 years I've been averaging 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night..

I haven't used in 13 days now, and even with l tyrosine, 4x week lifting, sleep and 3k cals a day, I feel so hollow and quick to get irritated.
My short term memory is pretty bad, as is my ability to focus for any length of time. Will these come back? What about being able to feel pleasure? How long does it take to start getting better bros?
Used from 30 to 33 years old.

I feel so empty and hopeless lads. Christpilled anons, please say a small prayer for me.

    You took one of the most toxic drugs for months and years, and you come here acting like you don't did this to yourself.
    I assume that you got into meth from a doctor, right? Then go back to said doctor and tell him all this. Asking for medical advice on the internet instead of a real doctor is third world behaviour

      Yeah started with a Ritalin script. I know I was a complete fool and I can only blame myself.

      The damage won't be as bad as you think, quite similar to taking adderall over the same period of time. You consumed it orally and slept a passable amount.
      That said, never touch it again. Certain people are prone to being addicted to amphetamines, you need to swear off of it.
      You'll feel normal again within a few months.

      Amphetamine usage, long-term, rewires your brain to only derive pleasure from amphetamines, and shrinks your frontal lobe. That's why you feel hollow and your short term memory is bad.
      The good news is that you were (relatively) intelligent by sleeping consistently and not escalating to injection or smoking. You will be alright in a few months. Feel elated that you're free from that poison and your brain is healing in real time.

      You'll be alright anon, just know you're going through a withdrawal period. I will say a prayer for you. You must stay sober at all costs.

      Thanks bros, I hope to the Lord you're right.

      >sleep averaging 5-6 hours a night
      Yeah I’m definitely going to believe this coming from some meth head lmao

      I forced (mostly successfully) myself not to take more after 1pm, and was taking 75mg doxylamine a night. Why would I lie about this?

        You're lying right now. There is one and only one way to take methamphetamines orally through a prescription.

      Thank you bros. Truly.

      First, congrats on 13 days sober, second you're only 13 days sober after 3 years of use. Give it time and welcome back to real life.

      You're right, it just feels like it's dragging, everything does right now.

    Most of these replies are gonna be dumb gym broscience.

    Low dose amphetamines do have actual benefits, so no, you haven't permanently ruined your brain but it will be hard. 30mg dexadrine is out of that range, but even in meth addicts the brain can return to a new normal after about a year. In the meantime I'd suggest looking into wellbutrin to help stay sober if you are honest with yourself and struggling with motivation/depression. Cold turkey is a nice internet meme thought that has a low success rate in the real world. Unfortunately some people can't just ask mommy for a year of income and support so they can quit stimulants and not end up homeless from crashing. If that's your case, get psych help. Most important thing is keeping up with cardio/trying to make at least half your day into a routine.

    You no longer have a soul and would likely stab your own mother if there was even the slightest short term benefit for you. Meth turns humans into soulless murderrape golems and the best thing you could do is off yourself. You won't, because you no longer have any ability to empathize with anyone

    if you only took orally and slept 5-6 hr/night (instead of doing multi day binges) you can probably be mostly back to baseline with a year or two. the most important part is to never touch it again.

    dude your endocrine system and organs are FRIED. your brain and endocrine receptors are FRIED

    its literally gotta take years to get back to normal.

    dont focus on building now. do long walks meditation and eat fruits and berries. you need to restore so much, including your nervoussystem

      I don't get what you guys don't get, if you stop using around 1 or 2, don't use a boatload to begin with and dose doxy and mel heavily you can be asleep by 4am and sleep till 9.
      The secret is don't take the sleeping pills too early or wait too long to lay down after you take them.
      You can try cycling it with around 100mg of benedryl but I found benedryl in the amount I needed to sleep gave me restless legs. I often wonder how much damage all the antihistamines have done.

    Gonna be a long time before you get back to normal brother, did meth for 10 years clean for 3 now

    Certain things never get better really I still get anxiety attacks and all the things I mastered on meth I have zero desire to partake in like guitar for instance.
    I found a source but I don't wanna lose me gains.

    I still have trouble focusing and get overwhelmed by tiny shit and I'm super vascular but I blew out all the veins on my left arm so I look like the coomer meme just typing this post out makes me fiend for it good luck man

    You should be ok if take orally in low doses.
    It's a prescribed medication for some conditions
    It has essentially the same mode of action to Adderall (amphetamine) that children take for adhd.
    When people stop their long term adderall use they have the same symptoms.

    I've taken both amphetamine (adderall) and meth (orally) at similar low doses and didn't really notice much of a difference between them.
    Smoking meth is a different story as the whole dose gets into the system within seconds and reaches very high peak blood levels. Quitting from a smoking or injecting meth habit is much harder and prolonged.
