In the past, boredom might have been a big factor... why it was so easy to use. I also use a little marijuana
but that has never caused me to have such horrible problems such as coke
. I smoke about 1 or 2 bowls of weed
a day and I like it, but its no big deal I think. Overall I'm feeling great about not using coke.
That's extremely good to hear, man. Keep it up. I've never (nor do I plan on it) tried cocaine
, but I can only imagine how hard it is to break the addiction
of it. From what I got from what you posted, you're not sure if you were addicted (prior to your previous posts) because you were using almost on a daily basis? That's how it is for me when it comes to nicotine
. Like, I feel like I'm addicted, but I just smoke every day so I can't really tell if I'm really struggling to get nicotine.
And definitely cannabis
is the way to go over both cocaine and alcohol; no need to worry over the "come down" effects. Keep at it man, I'm positive you can continue without use and you won't regret it. I'm not sure the type of situation with you and your friend is, but have you ever thought of trying to get him to quit with you? You can both work with each other, supporting each other, and both try to quit. Like I said, I've never tried cocaine so I'm not sure if what I suggested is a completely stupid idea or whatever, but yeah.
Good luck, keep at it.
