I've had periods of rampant substance abuse in my life, usually during rough patches when I lacked the means of healthily addressing emotional turbulence. At the moment I occasionally smoke pot for recreation, and sparsely use psychedelics for personal growth. However drugs play a huge role in my life in that I'm currently applying for online college to study Drug and Alcohol Counseling, and I aspire to be someone who can help those looking to break the cycle of addiction. Having seen friends with seemingly pleasant lives end up in desperate circumstances because of a few mistakes made with drug use has motivated me to try and be a source of support and compassion for those who struggle with substance abuse.
