My memory's fucked
    #4480052 - 08/01/05 06:32 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Over my extensive use of DXM last year (which stopped about 9 months ago), I noticed that my long-term memory capacity decreased dramatically. I used to do it in very large amounts very often, about 800-1200mg ~3 times a week for about 4 months. I was in a shitty position in life, and used the dissociative as my escape. I also used to drink while doing it, upping the dosage about double. Very stupid, I wish someone would have told me earlier about household psychedelic dangers.

In either case, I lost a good chunk of my memory to the drug, and it really has become a problem. What are some things to help me regain my memory capacity? Would stopping smoking help? Any herbal medicine recommendations?

(I was going to post this in General Questions...but for some reason that forum disappeared.)

Oy, same shit happened to me. Used dxm heavily for a couple of years. Noticed a definate decrease in mental ablilitys afterwords.
I hear excersizing your memory helps. Fuck if i know. Haven't tried it yet.

ginko biloba is pretty good apparently, never tried the stuff myself though.

omega 3 long chain fatty acids are supposedly good as well.

eat brain food. do brain exercises.

sort of like building your muscles up, actually.

edit: Find the current limit of your memory and push it every day.
progress may be slow, but you've got the rest of your life to work on it.

Heavy DXM use will fuck you up pretty good. You should get your memory back, but it wont be for a long time and you'll have to stop using it for that time too.

Same happened to me. Eat a lot of fish, read a lot, play video games that require lots of concentration and quick thinking. Try memorizing things, go over the multiplication table, anything. Count prime numbers. Go through telephone numbers.

Your memory's going to come back. It's not like it's erased forever.. its just cloudy due to the DXM. Mine came back and its been about 2 years, and I'm about 98%. A year ago I was probably 60-75%.

Try for different kinds of memory... See if you can visualize your whole
neighborhood, or remember which way is north.

Damn DXM sounds shitty.

I've tried it once, when i was in HS. It was quite fun. I got Detention for the whole day, so before school I popped eight TrippleCs. Haven't done it since then.

keep a memory log.. anytime you remember a past event, jot it down.. this might sprout even more memories that you can put down. Also asks friends stuff that they remember prior to taking DXM. Soon enough you will feel more comfortable with your long term brain capacity

Wow man. I was drinking about 40mg of DXM and smoking a bowl every couple of nights a week to help me sleep, and that alone did me the first noticible damage that I've ever associated with marijuna. I was only using DXM to help get to bed and realized that's what made me a scatter brain.

Take some lecithin. It's good shit. It keeps the testosterone from flucuating, doesn't lessen it or increase it by much, if any. Makes you sharp as a tac and you'll blow your load like a porn star if you take lots... but yeah, that and omega fatty acids are going to be needed in your diet to help things level out. Excersize your mind when you can as well, that's the best thing. You just need fuel for the fire, so make sure your diet's in check. Water as well.

Some drugs are good, some arent. Aspirin's a drug, and just because it's illegal doesnt mean its harmful.

Thanks for the tips, btw. It's not that I cant remember things before DXM use, it's that I have an awful memory, period. It's not uncommon that I cant remember what I did the day before.

I had problems also with a dull feeling in my head after stopping heavy use, but it went away after 3 or 4 months.

What does not kill you makes you stronger eh? You'll probably overcome this, just stop all using of DXM in the meantime.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
