> But now it has gone too far. All my friends smoke it too but when we get together all we do is just get smashed and sit watching tv or ps3, what ever happened to going out and doing stuff as a group and not getting smashed? i'll tell you habit now all we know of is to go out and get smashed,

I haven't touched it in 23 years. Not even once. Have no desire for it. In fact, it repulses me. Before that I was completely addicted to it as you are now.

I can speak only for myself. But I went to a local Christian church where I lived and was prayed over for it after making a dedication of my life to Christ and simply walked away from smoking and toking and never looked back.

Interestingly, many years later I started the wine tasting and social drinking and eventually found myself addicted to alcohol after a few years of that. I went through a Celebrate Recovery course and about six weeks in they prayed for me and that was the last drink I ever took. I have a lot of sobriety over alcohol and never even think about it anymore.

The last addiction on my plate is self-gratification. I am single and celibate and have been for 23 years. Yet I have the plumbing and desire to be married so it's a struggle. I would like to overcome that last frontier and then I would really be living a pure life.

Anyways, sorry recovery doesn't come in a pill but I have had good results with God and 12 step recovery. Best wishes. It is so important for each of us to overcome.
