Congrats on the diagnosis. It must feel like a huge weight was lifted from you shoulders. Work closely with your doctor and you will do just fine.

I have read that even if people have abused substances, once they get formally diagnosed with ADHD and choose stimulants they are less likely to abuse the medication. They still need to be cautious. All along these people were just trying to compensate for their unknown ADHD symptoms.

Good luck with your recovery and treatment. Now you will really start to feel the positive aspects of ADHD. Keep us updated.
