Hi. I am a former addict of cigarettes, weed, cocaine, ecstasy, alcohol and amphetamine. I used a combination of these drugs daily from age 16 consistantly until i was 32 then finally broke free.

I used to post on forums all the time desperatly asking for help to escape my addictions and they really helped. I'm 37 now and i wanted to come back and offer any support i can to anyone currently addicted to any of these substances.

If i can help anyone in any way then please feel free to contact me. Even if its just to talk to someone who understands.

Hi I was addicted to weed too for some years

but I loved it and felt it did me good, right up until the end when I was getting paranoid from it

yeah its really addictive. Some people debate that but i would say it definitley is.

It was the last addiction for me to break. I smoked it daily for about 15 years then all of a sudden out of nowhere started dissociating from reality....which persisted for about 6 months after quitting. Its the most terrifying thing ive ever experienced.

I always assumed that because id done if for years and experienced the same effect from it that this kind of thing wouldnt happen.....but it just goes to show you it can happen at any time to anyone...even regular smokers.

The neuroscience of why weed feels good is really fascinating actually....a real eye opener
