I have been clean for nearly 6 years but i got all kinds of weird tics and twitches from my dope smoking days.
That is interesting. My bro in law smoked crack
for years, 10 or so years ago, and my sister and I had come to the conclusion he was developing turrets (sp?). Its been getting worse year by year. Now he's actually went from what used to be mostly facial tics to making grunting noises almost every times he speaks. And I mean some weird sounds. Feel terrible for the dude sometimes. Does this sound familiar to your tics? Or I wonder if it may actually be turrets? Very indicative of long term brain damage if it is from the crack I would think.

It takes full concentration to keep all these things in check but it's hard so they may forget not to lock their jaw for a minute, or forget to breath normally.
One thing that they cannot control is the dilation of pupils, sweating, the loss of appetite and therefore weight. They can however eat even if they don't want to, but they look like they're having a hard time swallowing and as if they were full already.
Very good point. I, myself have become a master at the art of hiding side effects
. The hardest for me to hide was always the opiate
nods though. Never really knew I was doing it until I was jerking my head back up, and people don't have to be astronauts to figure that one out.
