been smoking weed for 12 years. only just realized it's been a crutch for the last 8. since me and ex broke up i haven't been eating much, wasting my money on weed and beer. been stoned every day. now i'm sober, crying and bleeding. i'm a recovering alcoholic, but the drink let me release the emotions. now i've swapped it for weed, to cushion the blows life has dealt me. people say it's not addictive, but everything is, just depends on why you use it. just hope this can help other people see what my friends have tried to show me.
