I've been stressed out lately due to some stupid things I have done in the past. Anyways, I'm 18 years old, and here is my story: (thank you to those of you taking the time to read it)
When I was 17 I smoked pot for the first time, followed by a year of smoking 2 - 4 times a week and then tried E once. Anyways, I moved to the Canary Islands with a paid internship, and decided to go on a mental journey. I met some very incredible people there, but unfortunately ended up smoking and drinking almost every day for 2 and a half months. I am most worried about what happened between this 2.5 month time span. Within these 2 and a half months I ended up trying meth once, cocaine (smoked and snorted) about 10 times, LSD once (but I had an entire patch ~ 4 doses at once), shrooms about 3 times, ecstacy twice (snorted and eaten), MDMA, and then Ketamine about 5 times. My last time taking Ketamine caused me to throw up, and I had a flashback from the LSD experience. I got accepted to a pretty good University in the US, and promptly moved back here to start school, seeing where my future was going if I stayed in the Canary Islands. And that is where I am now a month after leaving.

Anyways, I used to be a very talented writer, and my talent seemed to somehow multiply after smoking pot. (I wrote every college admissions essay while I was stoned as f***, and got accepted to every single one incuding the hard ones, even though my grades were subpar, although I attribute it to moving between many countries) I tried smoking pot again and writing a story a few days ago (one of my favorite things to do UTI), and it definitely turned out a lot worse than I was hoping. My memory has definitely been affected too. My question is, being 18, is it possible for these effects to reverse? Ironically, I'm studying to be a neuroscientist, and will find out all the damage I've done to myself, but would like to know you're input now so I don't have to wait another 6 - 10 years. Thank you for your time.
