@highjacob, what about your old friend who was like a brother? Do you still have a lot in common with him that you could hang out with him instead of the stoners? Everyone around here probably thinks I’m on some kind of deranged anti-weed crusade (not entirely true, I’m pro-legalization, I just don’t use it myself) but the thing is, when you say:

“I believe my friends are not the right fit for me, or are restricting me from being what I want to. They are heavily influenced by weed and will put getting high in front of a lot of things. I hang out with them a lot and a lot of the time feels wasted.”

I’ve been there. I know exactly what you mean, and I remember in those times I often blew off taking a more active role in my own life to just sit around and smoke weed. Man, I wish I could have all that time back. So that’s why I think the weed (and the stoners) might be influencing you to be lazy. Also, pharmaceuticals like adderall don’t seem to be a good idea. Gotta just exercise some willpower, it’s tough at first, but it builds up like a muscle.

EDIT: Oh, damn, I saw that you weren’t even prescibed for Adderrall. Yea, I’d drop that shit immediately. The last thing you need is to develop an addiction to pharmaceuticals. When you want to learn just be present. Again, it’s a willpower thing. I am fully convinced that humans do not NEED drugs to function, with the exception of certain terrible diseases.
