I have been smoking marijuana for almost every day since I was 16 (I'm 21 now). Anyway I've suffered from depression for awhile, longer than I've been smoking for. The therapists I've had have told me to quit since it is a depressant and could make things worse. I have chosen to to ignore them because I enjoy smoking. It makes me feel good in the short-term but it doesn't help me in the long run. The counselor that I'm seeing now once again told me to quit since it is not helping my mood and I am severely depressed. I have considered quitting because I wonder if it would help my mood and I wouldn't have to worry about cancer or other deleterious effects on my brain. I want to feel better but I enjoy smoking and I told my therapist it would be hard to quit because I'm psychologically addicted to marijuana. Does anyone have any experience with dealing with this or advice? I feel kind of odd asking this since it is just marijuana and I'm sure others wish this was their only substance they are having issues with.
