A brain ruined.

by Leonard
(Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

I am from a dysfunctional background. My life has had lots of stress in the past. When my sister got sick, I lost the attention from both of my parents and family. I got hooked on marijuana. I was smoking it like it was going out of style.

Months later, when I went back to school, I lost all of the things I have learned over the years, I went to the doctor, he referred me to a psychologist, she said the reason why I have issues with my ability to learn and the ability to function, and my anxiety disorder is because from the past drug use.

I have been addicted to THC for almost 3 years. Now look what happened, I don't have a high school education, inability to learn new things. They say that you can't get addicted to marijuana, and yes you can, I learned the hard way.

My brain is damaged and burnt out. My advice to anyone who is reading this is. When you see someone smoking marijuana and they are trying to force you to, DON'T DO IT!
You are falling for problems.
If you are doing it, do yourself a favor and quit now!
