Ive been sober for 5 weeks now. I quit because I was becoming more and more stupid and unsocial. The highs were lasting longer and the paranoia was getting worst. I had expected to feel better and become more funny as I quit but instead I am anxious when im around people, even my family members. I'm anxious that I cant think of things to say to people, like im boring and they are just talking to me to be nice or that they are expecting me to be like my old self. I feel depressed lots of the time and sleep for extra long times so I can dream instead of being awake. And I also feel a weird sorta out-of-it-ness like im not as firmly connected to reality as I once was. Does somebody know what I am feeling, can somebody relate please. I never thought being normal would be something I wanted so badly, im just terrified i'll have to learn to live with brain damage and always look back at who I was.
