“I was given something to think about in the section on smoking cannabis and using alcohol as stress reducers. I feel I have become dependent on using cannabis to help me with my mental and emotional problems. Although cannabis is legal in my state, I do not like the idea of being dependent on anything. I also hate the idea that this habit can lower my IQ, because one thing I really value about myself is my mind. After reading about the downside of cannabis and alcohol, I plan to seek help immediately in order to become a better student and person.” –Amy B.
“The website taught me that the first step to student success is to know that even if you never had great grades, you can make the change to receive all A’s and B’s. In order to change, you must make the right effort. Working too much can badly affect you by making you too tired to even focus. Learn to give yourself time for rest and socializing.” –Leah F.
