Exclamation Having an existential crisis

I donít really know how else to put it, but Iím not doing okay right now. How do you guys deal with this? Itís just hitting me so hard... the fact that Iím probably. More than a quarter way through my life given my rampant stimulant drug use from ages 17 to 20... I just.. fuck.

Rob if u really want to get ur life
back in order u should look into
a drug rehab program through a
doctor. If u don't have the money
there r State programs that can
help u with welfare. U cant stop
cold turkey u have to ease urself
out of it at a slow pace and these
places r good if u really stick to
the program. I don't know if I am
overstepping here but we all have
a long road and im sure u want
good for urself.

I really don't have anything to add to what @ska8er said... I do think it's sound advice...

I've already lost a close VT friend and several other people IRL to drug overdoses
Do find yourself a good drug rehab program asap and get yourself some help.

Yeah I also don't think I have anything different to say, except that it seems like ur problem starts w ur drug use, so that's where u have to start to fight it. U can't put ur life back together without dealing w that, but if bet if u do, you'll start to see that going thru a "quarter life crisis" isn't really that much of a crisis lol (relatively speaking, not tryna make light of ur situation). Stay strong and good luck!

If youíre on those kinds of drugs youíre probably more on a 3/4 or worse life crisis, if you donít clean up youíll be dead soon

Everyone, thank you for your advice. I'm sorry for the late reply, but you are all right.

With me and drug use, it spikes when I go to a party where drugs will be available beyond the weed I would already have on me by default. Now, I'm not talking about meth, or really any opiate of any kind. What I abused in particular is Cocaine and Marijuana, if you want to count that, as well as Adderall very occasionally. MDMA is even more rare, but still there...

But I've read that doing those drugs in short bursts like I've been doing every month to a month and a half on average (been doing this since I was about 18 and a half years old) is about as bad as if I had an addiction to any of those substances. I just looked it up, and conveniently enough, there's a NA (short for Narcotics Anonymous) meeting in the suburb that I live in. It's this Thursday, and I plan on attending it.

Again, thank you, everyone.
