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.

I don't really know how to word this, or even what to say, i think i have a problem, i've always drunk to give myself confidence, to the extreme where i don't know what i'm doing. I used to dabble in drugs every so often but now it's got to the extreme where i've been on mkat the last 5 nights, taken mdma etc, and i don't want to be like this anymore, i want to be able to go out in town and have a laugh. It's got to the point where as i used to get it free, i'm now paying for it, but everyone i meet seems to have some, and i know i have a problem as much as i dont want to admit it all my friends are lecturing me and i know they have a right to be worried but even the friends who are on it heavy are worried, i just dont know how to stop myself? =\

Reach out to your friends. You're lucky enough to have people there for you, grab them before you push them away. Your friends see you in many different lights and they're your friend for a reason so you don't need the substance confidence to make them like you.

I imagine you're in a very comfortable cycle at the minute and breaking that can be hard but once you do you'll start to find yourself feeling a lot better, physically and mentally. No doubt it'll be hard at first but it's worth the fight for a better quality of life in the end.

I suggest distancing yourself from your friends that are heavily into drugs as that influence will only have a negative effect on your progress. Find comfort in your friends that aren't using drugs, talk to them, express your feelings to them. If you find it hard to gather the confidence to that vocally ask if you can write them an email or letter... I know it can be hard to bring these kind of things up out of the blue with people.

Set yourself realistic targets and don't beat yourself up if you slip. It happens, it doesn't make you a failure, it just makes you human.
