Exclamation Other methods? - November 12th 2013, 10:23 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of substance use, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Well first off, I have done more drugs than I can remember and they are in my past. Second, I am currently raising a 2 year old due to my brother and his baby mama (for lack of a better term) both finding heroin to be more important than caring and providing for their child. Now that you know both of those facts, I can explain my problem.

Life has been stressful. I've had a breakup, my brother is in jail, the baby mama left rehab, we have a custody battle over the baby, and some more issues. I cannot seem to relax and calm myself anymore. The only way I know how is through self medicating and that is a slippery slope with me. I've lost my way before and quit caring about what happened to my life. I've tried everything I can think of. I've even resorted to trying alcohol in moderation and I wake up feeling the same as before I started drinking. (I've never had that problem. Usually a night out with the girls drinking relaxes me)

I've been contemplating starting smoking pot again and I really don't want to. Mainly because it is kind of illegal.. Are there any suggestions on anything I can try that isn't illegal? (I don't mean legal synthetic weed)

That's honestly all I've been doing the past two days. Trying those. I don't know. I just wanna not care anymore. I don't want to feel emotions. I was talking to my friend today who suffers from depression because he's concerned about me and I told him I'm just tired of feeling and he said he would rather feel horrible than feel nothing. I guess I'm just weird. I just can't take feeling like this. That's why I want to smoke weed, but like I told you, when I smoke weed I always go to the harder drugs and I lose myself. It took me a really long time to recover this last time and I know if I cave that I'll just be gone.
