Hi Hood,

Good for you realizing that you were using marijuana to escape from your problems and that it in the end that didn't help things at all. As you said, it really just made things worse. By facing the issues you can deal with them. By trying to ignore them, it just makes it worse or you're always dealing with the issue taking up negative space in the back of your mind. Things that you try to avoid dealing with tend to become bigger and bigger issues until you actually deal with them. And, lots of times, you find that it was so much easier just dealing with the issue rather than trying to avoid it. So, good for you. You're very wise.

Once you decide to face an issue, you're actually making the decision to move forwards with your life. You're focusing on what you want rather than what you don't want. You can figure out what action to take to solve the issue rather than letting it continuing to fester under the surface. So, you take control of your life which feels much better than feeling like there's nothing you can do or that you're a victim.

Thanks for your comments, Hood. I think you've made a really important point.

I'm dealing with the same thing, only smoking cigarettes. I want to move forward. I want to make a comeback. I can't do this with cigarettes holding me down, dictating how long I get to enjoy activities, hanging over my shoulder, dragging down my energy.
