Welcome to ReachOut and thanks for posting. Drugs are brain altering chemicals and once addiction takes hold, it can become a priority over other life commitments. This is ONE aspect that can define drug addiction or problem drug use. As a result, our usual levels of thinking, processing and understanding can be lowered. You are right in that you have to want and be prepared to change, for change to happen. Are you seeking any professional support at the moment?
Please keep an eye on your emails, I am sending one through.
