Drug, Alcohol and Marijuana Addiction Stories are Important

In meeting and working with addiction recovery patients over the years I have found that one of the most important aspects of their recovery is having the opportunity to share their story, their life experience.






Drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction stories don’t often have a happy ending but what ever the ending sharing them is helpful.

A former teacher of mine is a psychotherapist, who always talked to us about getting to the “essence of self” when helping people tell those all important drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction stories. It is the essence of self that drives the person’s perceptions and creates meaning in life. Your drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction stories are important. You are not alone and maybe there is someone who will benefit from you sharing your experience. We encourage you to gather your thoughts and share them with us.

A few drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction stories

Here are a couple of drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction stories that describe the process of recovery. We’re hoping that you will share your stories with us as well so that others can learn from your experiences.

Many people tell us that it helps them to read others drug, alcohol and marijuana addition stories because they understand what they’ve gone through a little better. Many times therapy sessions are simply a place where people come and share their drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction stories.

You may find that sharing your drug, alcohol and marijuana addiction story anonymously is the first step toward dealing with addiction.

It’s only pot, what’s the big deal?

A woman of about thirty walked in to the free clinic and screamed at everyone there:

I NEED HELP AND NO ONE IS HELPING ME!!

She’d been there quite a few times before and everyone was used to her tantrums. She whisked her into to a counseling room and she screamed at the counselor until she settle down.

After weeks of sessions and screaming and crying she admitted she was addicted to street pain pills and was unwilling to quit. Her problems were about money and abusive relationships, not about her drug addiction.

When discussing her family background, she said her dad had been smoking pot all the time since her birth. She was fine with his marijuana use and felt it was no big deal.

Her father hadn’t worked in decades and sat around the house watching TV and getting high. He was so negative she was sure he routinely contemplated suicide, but still she saw nothing wrong with his drug use.

Her sister has four children and her and the father of the children have both been in jail for heroin addiction and have lost custody of their children. But she stills sees no issue with her dad’s pot smoking.

What the counselor tried to show her is that much of the family dysfunction and problems started with her fathers illegal drug use but she was never convinced. To her illegal drug use was a normal part of life and buying drugs was as common as going to the drug store. No big deal!

As marijuana addiction stories go, this is pretty typical. Entire families smoke all of the time and think there is no problem. Any problems that are there are seen as something unrelated to drug use. Marijuana has become like alcohol use, no big deal and any problems are ignored.

Not a Great Night to be an Atheist

Josh Hamilton had a dream that he would be in Yankee Stadium in a Home Run Derby contest. The 27 year-old slugger from the Texas Rangers had his dream come true July 14, and he put on the greatest display of power and consistency in the history of the event. It wasn’t long ago that Hamilton wasn’t a professional baseball player at all. He was a alcohol and heroin addict. Click Addiction articles here…

Graduation Day?

The group session on spirituality was just wrapping up when one of the staffers opened the door and asked “Are you almost finished?” For Janice, one of four women in the group, it was time to go home. She had finished a five-day stay at the residential Marijuana and alcohol treatment center, and this day, as she put it, was “graduation day.”

It was a strange, almost surreal moment. After a stay in the hospital or treatment center, it should be good to go home and be with your. People, given they are medically stable and out of danger, heel better at home. Going home should be a good move. But was it?

Out in the lobby, her husband and pre-teen son waited. Now if my wife had been in treatment and was getting to go back home, I’d be excited. A big part of my life would have been missing, but in his case, the expression on his face told the whole story. Words can’t express the look. “OK, it’s time to take the addict home.” The son sat in a chair, head down, and when his mother came out, he didn’t seem at all enthusiastic about seeing her. In a moment, the family situation became very clear.

Pot Addiction tares up families, as those watching their loved one struggle with the disease will bear the emotional scars long after the addiction is under control. What might have been concern for the addict at one point in time sadly can turn to anger and resentment. It’s a kind of “Look what you’ve done to us” mentality and nobody has to say anything. You can read it immediately. The family goes down the addiction path too, playing their roles.

Organizations like NA and Al-Anon/Alateen are there just for families. Just as the 12-Steps were created by addicts for addicts, those principles were the basis for family groups. And just like the addict, the family member is not alone. There is help and support.

Janice gathered up her things. There was a short re-uniting in the lobby as she signed out. The moment was not joyous, no kisses, no “I love you” and it was like the husband was picking her up from work. His look told the whole story. She was leaving the structure and security of the treatment center and going back into the environment she was in while using. “Graduation Day” should be celebratory, but something was missing.

In treatment, Janice received compassion and understanding from the other patients. In group it is obvious that they all can relate to each other. There is human connection on a surprisingly deep level, even though the people in treatment may only see each other for a few days. That was going to be missing. Perhaps she had resources lined up and could call on them at a moment’s notice. My sense was she did not. Graduation day didn’t look so good.

The nurses were all talking about the two brothers. It’s was at the daily morning meeting, when the interdisciplinary team gathered to discuss the status of each patient in the hospital.

Who knew this would happen?

This is a story about a beautiful, bright and intelligent girl. She was the best player on her eighth grade basketball team and she appeared to have all of the requisite talent to excel in high school and perhaps earn an athletic scholarship. But she never went out for the high school team. “Too much time commitment” was her reasoning and she never played again… Click here to read more…

God bless the “bad guy”

When it comes to delivering a message, or taking even the most appropriate and necessary action, nobody really likes to be the “bad guy.” In the case of addiction, the “bad guy” is the one who takes action and intercedes on behalf of a friend or loved one. God bless the “bad guy,” who sees a problem, tries to help, and in so many cases may wind up saving a life… Click here to read more…

Accidental, but not uncommon

Actor Brad Renfro’s fatal overdose on heroin is a sad reminder that drug use can lead to devastating consequences. It’s an even sadder reminder that no matter how much money and resources are pumped into drug education programs, the message still doesn’t get out. It’s not like this is a new phenomenon.

Summary of Marijuana Addiction Stories

The denial involved in Marijuana Addiction Stories is unbelievable. Because so many want marijuana legalized they brush any negative issues related to use away.

Most people today under 30 have their own versions of Marijuana Addiction Stories. They use or their boyfriend/girlfriend uses, smoking pot is a normal part of social interaction. If you don’t like smoking pot then there is something wrong with you. Like people who use alcohol, they ostracize anyone who won’t use.

Marijuana Addiction Stories are about addiction, and Marijuana addiction has as many negative consequences as any other drug addiction, regardless of what the addict wants to believe.



and Finally Remember:

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
– Matthew 7:7-8

  1. Thanks for your concepts. One thing I’ve noticed is that banks in addition to financial institutions really know the spending behaviors of consumers while also understand that most people max out their real credit cards around the breaks. They sensibly take advantage of this particular fact and begin flooding your own inbox in addition to snail-mail box together with hundreds of no interest APR credit card offers immediately after the holiday season closes. Knowing that if you’re like 98 of all American general public, you’ll hop at the chance to consolidate financial debt and switch balances for 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.

By bringing out yourself to the owners the first few days their FSBO can be announced, before the masses commence calling on Friday, you produce a good network. By sending them equipment, educational elements, free accounts, and forms, you become a good ally. By subtracting a personal affinity for them as well as their circumstance, you produce a solid interconnection that, most of the time, pays off if the owners decide to go with an adviser they know as well as trust – preferably you actually.

Another point is that just being a photographer requires not only trouble in capturing award-winning photographs but hardships in establishing the best dslr camera suited to your requirements and most especially problems in maintaining the quality of your camera. This is very genuine and noticeable for those photography addicts that are directly into capturing a nature’s engaging scenes — the mountains, the particular forests, the wild or the seas.
