continued.... Drugs No matter what is your poison, or your addiction, drugs are a sense of taking ourselves out of a world we no longer what to live or feel for a few hours. I remember the first night I smoked. I had just got dumped. While I was on acid ( regrets the whole trying acid thing ) I was with a few friends and they all were begging me to smoke. I decided why the hell not what did I have to lose and I probably wouldn't even like it. I didn't like it, I also wasn't doing it right ( how was I not doing it right, well thats a whole other story. ) Smoking took me out of my world, I went from being stressed and always overthinking being high strung. Smoking made me feel like I had control, like I finally could see everything around me clearer. When I first tried smoking I thought it was going to be something like drinking and that I was going to become like addicted or something of the sorts. It was a way different experience than drinking and it actually help me stop drinking. I didn't need to smoke everyday. Or even ever week. It wasn't like when I developed a problem with alcohol where I needed to get completely wasted every time I got a chance. With smoking I didn't wake up with a pounding hangover and lose function for that whole day. I was still me, except way less stress. I honestly can not wait for the day it becomes legal. It has helped me so much with my depression, anxiety, and insomniac that any prescribed medicine as ever helped me.
