Well im not going to go into it
I don't think I need to prove anything to anyone
So ima just say my life is shitty
I'm very depressed in life and i feel like doing nothing all the time
I have absolutley no motivation
My rents are completely against medication
So i was wondering, and im wantin some opinions from some people who aren't automatically biased against drugs
Well i am definatly a strong minded person
I'm 17, i havent had sex, relationships, freinds, or anything
No one could live my life without turning to drugs
Yet i do it everyday
But it's getting too much and im afraid i'll end my life fairly soon
So ima ask, in some situations do you think it's ok to turn to recreational drugs as long as you don't get addicted?
I've been thinking bout for a long time about doing some type of drug cuz its the only thing i think will help right now
I just don't know what else can help because my parents wont do a single thing to help me out at all...
Yet they restrict my life so much....they wont let me do anything basically, yet they wont help me on anything
Its seriously like if someone were to have a math test, and the teacher said "i won't help you study, and you can't use your book to help you either, you can't use anything to help you"
but enough about that
i geuss im just needing somewhere to rant
but like, yeah, i really thinking about doing some type of drug tho
and i was wonderin if you guys thought that drugs are ok to use as long as its not a "dangerous" drug and i don't get addicted...?
Something ive been thinking about
Well im not going to go into it
Welcome back, Someone young.
Recreational drugs are not all the same. I would strongly urge you to keep away from the ones that produce a temporary high but then a low when you stop taking it. Anyway, many people here with experience can advise you.
In any case, I think it's more productive to see what can be done about causes rather than symptoms. Have you talked to a school counsellor? That's what their job is, to talk about things like this and help find solutions. Parents who won't respect their offspring will often respect school counsellors a lot more.
Have you considered St John's Wort? It's a mild herbal antidepressant you can buy over the counter.
Haven't heard of it...
What is it?
But yeah, im basically clueless on everything
I don't get out much
I don't really have any freinds and stuff so
Pretty much all i know is
There's Weed, acid, meth, shrooms, extasy, and lsd
I would only try Weed and shrooms cuz I do know they're both natural and can't like really harm you like chemicals could
But of a drug knowledge thats all i know
I don't even know how to do any drugs other than you smoke weed
I mean im 17, i should know more than this...
its just....i have really no life outside this computer
And by my age, no one wants to let me in on anything
cuz you know eveyone is "experianced" by now and i just look stupid if i ask about anything to real people...
I don't think it's possible to take drugs and not get addicted considering your situation. You feel really good the first time and then you spend the whole time trying to get that feeling back and there you have it you're addicted.
I would either take antidepressants no matter what your parents say or threaten to commit suicide in front of them and see what they say.
Quote:I don't think it's possible to take drugs and not get addicted considering your situation
I agree with this quote. They might be more damaging than good at this point.
Also I agree with antidepressants or St John's wart like Ineligible said, but I would not threaten them with suicide. You could end up at the farm.
> I don't think it's possible to take drugs and not get addicted considering your situation.
I strongly disagree. I was in pretty much the same shoes as SomeoneYoung and smoked weed and never got addicted (not physically, not mentally). I do believe that it's possible to become mentally dependant on weed, but that's a little different story.
Like I just said, I was in a similar situation as you, and I started smoking weed and loved it since the first time. I smoked because it was pretty much the only time I could get out of that depressive state I was always in. It was the only time I could feel something OTHER than depression. For me, it was great.
Now, don't think that weed was a solution. It's not a solution, it just helps me deal with my depression. Eventually you'll need to solve your depression by "normal" (as in, without drugs) means.
I'm not saying "go out, smoke weed and have fun", just sharing my opinion on it. It worked great for me.
Are drugs the issue? YOu sound depressed. If the computer is your deal, let someone here know.
I know there are some recreational drugs that won't get you addicted. They can be really fun- but u need friends to make the most of it.
If you want to experiment that way, figure that out first.
I can't figure out if you're talking to me or SomeoneYoung..
Beleive me i couldn't get addicted anyway
Because there's no way i could smoke in my house and cover it up
So ide have to go out of my way to go to a freinds house, which i couldnt do often even if i wanted to.
> Beleive me i couldn't get addicted anyway
Believe me you could. Maybe not to weed, but there are plenty of things you can get addicted too. Having the "I won't get addicted" mentality only leads to bad things. Take it from someone who made the same mistake.
Well having the "i simply couldn't smoke weed enough to get addicted to it" set of life pretty much garuntees i wont get addicted to it....
Anyway though, im def not a cool kid in school.
I'm ona those kids that if i did weed and told everyone, people would think i was doing it to be cool and fit in.
So it'd be something ide wanna do in private but...
All the stoners hate me so...
Where do you really find weed if your not cool with the majority of stoners?
A very good friend of mine was suffering from depression in the very recent past. She would wake up crying, banging herself against something trying to "get rid of the pain". She would cut herself, break things, anything to get her away.
Doc gave her some prozacs, and with some support from her friends and Family, she's pretty good now. Although I wouldn't recommend she get off the prozacs for a while (it's only been about a month), she is doing VERY well. She complains her feelings seem artificial sometimes, but with the support of friends and family, normally she can surpass that artificial feeling and experience true happiness. Something she hasn't done in a long while.
I'd look into finding a free clinic (colleges have lots) or talking to a councilor. True say: that is their job to get you help, if they don't: complain to the administration.
what do you have to do to go to a free clinic????
Don't you gotta be like 18 and prove that your dirt poor?
I get free counseling at my Univ because I'm a student, but walk ins only cost $35. Not a lot considering the help it can have.
I dunno about the 18 only thing, but if you aren't 18, go see your school counselor. That's why they're there. (one of many reason)
