Debunking the Myths of GHB
You can’t become addicted to GHB! It’s already in your body!While it is true that GHB is a naturally occurring component within the human body, it is still possible to develop an addiction to the synthesized drug. Addiction to GHB develops easily and quickly because the body does not differentiate between the synthetic GHB and the naturally occurring compound- it merely recognizes an increase of the chemical and adjust to the new, higher levels.
GHB has a short half-life. That means no withdrawal or detox symptoms!The short half-life of GHB means it does not last long in storage, it does not negate the effects of withdrawal or detoxification. Withdrawal from GHB can be intense and potentially deadly if unmonitored. Symptoms of GHB detox typically last 10 to 14 days; detoxification should not be attempted with the assistance of a rehabilitation center.
GHB is called Pink Meth, so it must be like regular meth!
I only use GHB occasionally to enhance the party- I’ll be fine!GHB is dangerous regardless of frequency of use. The first dose can be just as deadly as the 100th, especially because of the unpredictable nature of the dosage. The amount need to cause the desired effects in a 125 lb, 40 year old woman that has abused GHB for years can kill a 300 lb, 25 year old pro-wrestler using GHB for the first time. [get-help]
