Oh how it all went so terribly wrong. - March 7th 2011, 12:14 PM

I cannot talk to anyone about this, and sadly, there is no "TwentiesHelp" to go to, so I am posting it here, just to vent.

I feel really down, I have not felt like this in a very, very long time. Everything is going wrong.

-> I am doing a academically pointless course that I am only still on scalar I've shelled out the money. I have already got a degree qualification that supersedes what I will be receiving. Why? Because when I signed up for this course, I was unsure whether I would complete the degree.

-> I have mates addicted to weed. It has caused me to develop my own addiction, and during my first sober period, I have gone downhill so much. They say weed doesn't affect some people. It seems, unfortunately, that I am one of the few people it does affect.

-> As a former loner geek, I consider my ascension to relative popularity a great achievement. I am confident and outgoing, but that's only surface stuff. Inside, I doubt myself. Big time.

-> Despite many social life advancements, I am 22 and have had very little success with girls. I am growing sick of it. Perhaps it is neediness for female attention derived from not having a mother, so-called "mummy issues", who knows.

-> I have tried dating websites. Not my thing. I want to be able to pull in real life, in say, a club. Why settle for anything less?

Thanks in advance.

Hey there,

I know that you are look at life right now and asking yourself, "what is the point". Please don't do that. Look at what you have. You have an education that not many people have. Also DUMP the weed. I know this is probably easier said then done, but it is truly never going to help your mental state in the long run. If you need help with this you could try looking into substance abuse places around you, or seeking help from a counseler. You said that you have bad luck with girls, I doubt that is the case try putting yourself out there a little more.

Good Luck! I hope this helped
Trish

The solutions sound easy. It's implementing them I need advice on.

My "mates" include my best mate, his family are like my family to the extent I live in their house.

I have discussed the idea of quitting weed with my best mate before but this has been met with hostility. He does not have the motivation to give up and has made implications that if I do quit, it will be alone.

Putting myself out there...idk, I will search for clubs at college but other than those I do not see any other alternatives. Please note that by college I do not mean university.

It's not even shyness. I have a good friend at college - she's a married woman of 33.

Given weed being part of the issue, college counsellors are out of the question - at least, I would have to edit my story which defies the whole point.

Speaking of mental states, it's only day 1 of sobriety and I'm already on the verge of a fukin nervous breakdown. It's ridiculous. And no, I will not seek professional help in terms of a clinic, that would be a red flag that is simply not up for debate.
