Not sure if I'm crazy or I have an addiction to getting high.

So long story short I have had a hand in various drugs since I was 12 to 13 years of age and that dosn't count for when I had my first drink of alcohol. So through the years (I am 22 now) I've been physically addicted to a few different kinds of drugs, but in the end I always managed to get my self off the drug without having to go to the hospital. Well now It's come down to it in my life where I need to end this chapter in my life. I need a new chapter for various reason's. I've finially cut out everything except bud. For some reason I find it very difficult to just stop smoking it anymore. I have been through this many times now and basically I always have to have something to get me some kind of high or I get headache's, fatigue, agitated easily, you might even say I tend to loose my head more on certain things that would normally just make someone angry. I hate what not having something does to me. So I always go back to bud. Nothing else just that. Am I crazy or is it possible that I have a psychological addiction to getting high?

Hi NaturallyThinGirl: I would say you have a psychological addiction to not only getting high, but staying high...It has worked its magic on you...It is only when you are able to break free and say I can do it that you will be cured...

An addiction is an addiction...Yours is no different than a person with Bulimia or some other problem...My best to you...Take care...

Sometimes the brain is changed by the use of drugs or alcohol - there is a website that explains how alcohol changes the brain and weed affects these same receptors. I believe that taking some GABA - you can get it at a health food store - could help with your issue. I hope it helps.
