I had been off the stuff for 2 years. My problem was that I was truly seeking a way to dedicate myself to serving God and had become dissatisfied and disalussioned with the established church system. I was frustrated, lonely and vulnerable - not to mention young and extremely naive, but I was not and am not an idiot.

I have no problem with people smoking weed, as long as they can keep it under control - much like alcohol users - some people are not able to to use it responsibly. My weed user friends irritate me because they seem like they can't go 5 min. without having to find a place to smoke. That bugs me about cig. smokers and alcoholics, I just don't like being controlled by another substance.

I agree that Lydia's statement doesn't make too much sense, but I don't believe in calling people idiots for joining TF, especially in the beginning when they seemed to be so dedicated and innocent and we knew nothing about Berg and his pimped out doctrines.
