It took about a year but almost everyone I hang out with now smokes pot. And no its not because of my influence. Infact, I was the last one to come around...fuck that.

I dont know where the fuck my life is headed but I dont want it to stay here. I need to step away from everything but thats impossible.

If I were to get a performance evaluation from God, he'd fire me.

I stepped away from everything. A long ways away. It needed to be done.
Just wanted to let you know it can be done.

This sounds just barely like a variation of "Trainspotting".

And it's not impossible to step away, it just looks that way because you don't know what to want to do or what to expect once you do know. Just take it one step at a time and it'll be easier than you think.

It starts with a firm decision. I mean it can start to change..if you want.

I hope your assessment isn't solely based on pot smoking, right?

No, I think on the whole I more or less suck.

Key word "almost"
Also, I've seen you twice in a year.

I'm sorry man, I don't know what to say. I'd give you some words of wisdom, but I'm just some high school kid with an expired driving permit. You're a smart guy though, I'm sure you'll figure something out.

Thats right Fuck That!! Smoking pot sucks, alcohol is alright in moderation. But hey, God would definately not fire you, and i know cuz i know you. Your funny as hell, your smart, ambitious, and your friends all respect you a lot. Let me tell you about stepping away, i did it for two years, and i mean EVERYTHING. I dont think its needed in order to think things out and realize what you need to do. But if you think your friends smoke too much pot on the patio and you dont want to be a part of that shit, then step away. Dont do anything you dont want to do!!! But, if you step away, when do i get my Broadway Diner!?!?

God will never fire you

Not for smoking pot, not for drinking, not for unadulterated sex, not for much. YOU decided what is right for you. If this isn't, change it. If you aren't happy, you are the only one who knows what changes to make. And deep in your heart, you know.

As someone said in a previous comment, make a firm decision. If you want to step away, then do it. Get out of town. Make a new start. You have to do it sometime, it might as well be now. Pack your bags and leave. Start living the life you want. It'll be hard, but rewarding. Follow your heart.

And I'm fairly certain God won't fire you. You've got tenure.

I

smoked pot from age 16 to age 25. I quit because I had started working out and felt the pot was affecting my cardio workout. I was in the best shape of my life. Drug and alcohol free...and at age 27...I got cancer. Hodgkins Disease. My first session of chemo brought me to my knees. I spent 9 hours on the floor of my bathroom puking and shitting myself. Too weak to move and get on the toilet. At my mothers urging because of something she had read...I smoked a joint immediately after my second chemo...and then went to a steak and hoagie shop and ate to my hearts content. People say...pot is a gateway drug...I don't know about you...but most of the people I know drank a beer first...ALCOHOL is THE gateway drug...You also don't see too many fights break out at a smoke out...you also don't see too many people dying in car wrecks under the influence of it. You don't see a lot...but if your not sure...head on down to the local tap room on a saturday night and look around...I smoke as often as I can. If I could go to work that way I would. I find it an awesome way to escape some of the shit we all have to deal with as humans. Most of the music you listen too...more than likely the boys were high...my writings you enjoy so much...I was blasted....I'm not trying to sway you...just letting you know...maybe its not the pot...but your friends who are on it. Life changes...and changes us...I no longer see any of the people I ran with when I was younger...maybe its time to change something else...
