Marijuana is a lot of fun, I've been smoking
that every day for 5-6 years with no problems (still doing great with my job & college). I've done magic mushrooms - those are great for spiritual/mental healing and life problems so I'd definitely suggest those.
And talk you out of it? It seems drugs will solve your problem as long as they aren't dangerous. Stay away from ecstacy, cigarettes, alcohol, cocaine, PCP, heroine, and things related to that as they are highly addictive and will shorten your life.
Magic mushrooms, peyote, LCD/Acid, and marijuana will all greatly improve your life as long as you don't abuse them. Find a nice, quiet area and have a full day trip and you will come out feeling enlightened and reborn.
