There are more teenagers in Marijuana Anonymous today than at any time in the past. We come for many different reasons— parents tell us to come, the schools or the courts send us, some of us come on our own. A few of us have smoked pot for years, others only a few months. Many of us question whether we really are marijuana addicts. Some of us think we have not used long enough to be addicted to marijuana. The symptoms of marijuana addiction are varied, but some are very obvious: ditching school, getting high before, during, and after school, dropping out of school, lying to our parents, etc.
It does not take years to develop into a marijuana addict. It can happen very quickly. Peer pressure often plays a part in the process; some of us smoke pot to feel more comfortable in the presence of a certain person or crowd. Only you know if you are a marijuana addict. MA is here for any person, regardless of age.
The first time I smoked weed was during Getting caught smoking weed stories summer before 8th grade. I was really curious to see what it was all about. Later, I smoked some more. The next chance I got to get high, I jumped on it. The more I did it, the more I liked it. I loved the way pot played with my head. Finally, I got caught. I was grounded for a while, but I went right back to it. That happened over and over until my parents decided to put me in a chemical dependency program.
I managed to still smoke pot on the day furthest from my drug tests. I tried all those purification concoctions, but my dad eventually found out. I kept getting into more trouble. Finally, disaster struck. I was caught at school. My hearing to determine whether I am expelled or not happens very soon. My eyes have been opened. Getting caught once can ruin your life.
By staying sober, I am getting all my privileges back. As for school, I hope to be allowed back in. My only job is to stay out of trouble. I am 16 years old. When I was 11, I started smoking cigarettes because of a friend. At age 12, I started getting into alcohol and hanging out with gang members. At 13, I started smoking marijuana.
At 14, I started doing hard drugs. I pulled a knife and swung at my dad. Luckily, I missed. I love my dad because he is the person who brought me into this world. When I was using, I had a lot of problems.
Me and my dad got into a fight. We were hitting each other. The cops came. I tried to jump over the wall in my backyard. The cops grabbed me, and handcuffed me. My mom and dad had to decide whether to send me to juvenile hall. My mom said yes but my dad said no. When I was in the 7th grade, I got arrested for possession and use of marijuana.
I was kicked out of school for a year. I was kicked out by my parents. After 4 years of life on the streets, I was hanging out with my homies, getting drunk and doing dope every day. Now I have been drug-free for almost a year. I finally came back to school. I am succeeding in school and life.
I realize now that doing dope is not cool. I want to finish high school and go to college. I want to be an attorney. I am a 16 year old recovering marijuana addict. Like most teens, I went to MA for my parents mainly.
My parents put me in an outpatient program. The program made me go to one meeting a week. I chose MA because marijuana was my drug of choice. In MA, I learned about calling people for help. At 30 days, when I took my chip, I was ready to be sober for myself.
At 60 days, I decided to learn the Serenity Prayer and get a sponsor. Staying clean would be enough. Now that I have a sponsor, I see how important she is. When I have a good day, she is happy for me. When I have a bad day, she tells me it is OK and makes me feel better.
After days clean and sober, I graduated the outpatient program. I still have bad days.
The people in MA comfort me. Bad days make me realize I need to thank God for the good days and not take them for granted. What kind of person becomes an addict? Someone popular, with a lot of friends; or someone who is different from the rest, estranged from the popular crowd, with only a few friends, or none at all?
The point I am trying to make is anyone can become an addict. The only way that I figured this out was by becoming an addict myself. I used to be a guy who was always in the popular crowd. Right before high school began, I started being shunned by most of my friends. I had never lived with the fear that I had no friends, so I did almost anything to keep the two good friends I still had. One of the things I did was try pot for the first time.Getting caught smoking weed stories
