Yes, too much. When I first had the accident, I was on bedrest, and under so much medication through IV. But once I started back getting out with my friends and stuff, I started drinking and smoking heavily like just to be able to numb the pain, the thoughts. So, I stayed smoking marijuana, I stayed drinking liquor, so that right there was—if I went and got with my friends, that’s most likely what I was doing. And that was like a real bad time for me because I would go through that for a whole entire day, but then I would get my mom to go home and sober up it’s like thoughts that was numb, it’s like now you got to deal with them. So, it never just really—it helped me for a couple of hours but that was it. To be honest, the only way I got out of it was God. He told me, I prayed, and he told me “only way out of this is through me. If you want to stop hurting, you want to stop being in pain for good, the only guarantee is through me—weed, liquor temporarily.” And so, when I received that message, I tried and when I tried it works, so I stuck with it.
