Help.. Need Advice.. - April 18th 2012, 12:47 AM

ive been so un happy lately that ive been turning to weed and drinking... I dont know what to do. ive been wanting to get high and my friends are all really dissapointed in me but they dont get how im feeling or what im going through anymore.. my dad and i allways get into fights, i have Alopecia, i always get bullied and i have been turning to drugs and drinking. i need some good advice on what i should do about this .. i just need some people to tell me that everything will be okay but it wont, i allways think about how fat or ugly i am. all of this stuff is killing me inside and i have been getting high alot and drinking more then i should at 14. i just need some good advice.

Hi Brianna,

The short answer here is that the drugs and booze just distract from the underlying issues and the unhappiness that results. What you need is to figure out why those feelings are there in the first place, and address them directly and find other ways of soothing yourself.

If you can do that by yourself, fine. But if you can't, tell your folks or some other trusted adult what you've been feeling and what's been going on and let them take you to some professional that can help you work thru this and get to the other side safely.


PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.

Hi Brianna, Drugs and alcohol are not the answer they are a short term fix to the problem. They often become more of a problem than the original, I watched a lot of my friends throw away their lives to drugs and alcohol. Some of them now I would not let into my house because I can no longer trust them. I am sorry to hear about you and your father fighting all the time does he know your drinking and smoking ? Is this what the fighting is about ?
