Actually the zombie drug is called K2 otherwise known as synthetic weed or spice, believe me, it has the same effect.

Flakka is a more mental addiction that will, I repeat, will win in the beginning. The only hope is to do what I did, get sick of it tearing yourself and family or anyone you care about apart, then you have a small shimmer of hope. I finally did it after 2 years of being an intense addict. I am happy now and slip but fight it to save who I am. It is nearly impossible to break completely, rehabilitation or not, it is all on yourself. My life is so shameful when I slip up here and there and am reminded why I fight for a car and friends and a job. I am a 21 year old male.
