If your use of cocaine, pot, or booze interferes with your essential life, and causes you to lose your relationships, your job, your education, etc., then it is abuse, IMO, and you need professional help.
Agreed. Notice where I said basically the same above in responding to him? Just pointing out that you're responding to rclark's post who was responding to something that was posted BEFORE any of this happened. Clearly, things have gotten much worse since then.
