Worried... - April 2nd 2009, 11:32 PM

So this year mostly since I got kicked out of my dads house, I have been drinking a lot more. I mean last year I used to go to parties occaisionally but not every weekend. Now I go to parties every single weekend mostly and almost always end up really drunk. Also recently I have began to smoke weed... Im kind of freaked out but like I do want to stop because then yeah... but I also like the feeling. Like I mean for a little while when I am either drunk or high I feel better. The memories I dont want to have I no longer think about...... I dont really know what to do... Im worried because I dont want to be dependant on anything.... but I dont know...

Does anyone have any advice? please?

Hey Kimmi

I wouldn't suggest using either alcohol or weed to escape from reality. That kind of behavior is what usually leads to frequent use and potentially addiction. There are better ways to deal with negative feels and memories. You could pick up a hobby that will help you relax and just not think for a little while. You could also start therapy to work through some of your emotions in a healthy way. Bottling everything up and running away from how you feel might feel like it is working now but in reality you are letting all the pressure build up and one day it will blow up in your face. It sounds like you know that your partying is getting a little out of hand. I would try and at least cut back if not quit it all together. You have to think about what you want from life. Is this the life you really want for yourself? One filled with false happiness, mistakes, and lack of maturity. It is best to stops something before it gets even more out of control and things become even worse. If you are worried about becoming dependent either quit altogether (which is the best idea) or dramatically cut back. It is up to you to make the right decision and this decision could very well effect you for the rest of your life. With that said I think you should put a good deal of thought into what you are doing. If you ever need someone to talk to I am here for you. I am never to busy to listen and I will try and do my best to help in any way I can. You are not alone. I know you can fight this and win if you really want to. Take care and be safe.

Lots of love <3 Mimi

Kimbo,

you know I have no idea how to help you here, but I'm always here to listen, and if you can ever think of something I can do to help, then let me know. Text me, PM me, email me... I'm always here.

Love and hugs,
Sam


There will come a time, you'll see
With no more tears
And love will not break your heart
But dismiss your fears
Get over your hill and see
What you find there
With grace in your heart
And flowers in your hair
