I've wondered for over a year now if i have a problem when it comes to smoking pot. It's taken me a while, but i think it's finally time to say that I do. I find the majority of my conversations revolve around pot, or at least getting high. I've spent what can only be described as a 'stupid amount' of money on pot, over summer i was spending near £100/week, and as a result i barely made a dent in my student debt, despite working every week. Basically, i'm not sure i like the person i am when i'm high. This is where i started to wonder about issues. I love getting high, i love being high.. but i don't like the person i become when i'm high anymore. I have these visions that, if i applied myself, i could achieve so much more. But instead i choose to sit at home and escape the ideas, rather than realise them. Myself, i'm not sure if this qualifies as an addiction, or even if i should be posting here, but you seemed like the sort of people to offer support. I've heard anti-drug talk from my parents for years, but right now... i feel like listening. Shit, for years i've told my parents there was no such thing as a dependence on marijuana, and that it does no harm. I've become more and more introverted, paranoid and self-loathing and i realise that, in my happiest moments, none of them involved drugs. I've had great times with drugs, times with friends that I wouldn't trade for anything.. but i'm not sure it fits with me any more, and i'm not sure i want to be a part of it any more. I guess i'm asking for support from anyone that's tried to quit before, and that can possibly relate to what i'm feeling right now. I've already signed to live with a smoking friend next year so there are aspects i can't escape.. but i haven't bought any in over a week, which by my standards puts my 6 days overdue. Please.. help. I've justified this habit for years, i don't need to hear other people's justifications.. i need to hear honest truth from those who have succeeded in quitting, and how you did. Please.
