Like An Old Pair of Shoes

I moved out to Australia when I was 14, I was dragged kicking and screaming by my parents who thought they could make a better life out there. I made friends with the only people who I remotely had anything in common with. Then I was introduced to weed, i smoked heavily from about the age of 16 to 20, I think mainly as a form of escape, but it made me able to just get on with things and be sort of contempt with what I had. At the age of 21 I decided enough was enough and quit the stuff, only to realise that without it I have absolutely nothing in common with my friends and how unhappy I am here.. For most of them their lives either revolve around smoking or drinking heavily, and I'm not into either anymore. There are a couple of people I will always have a connection with but overall, and I feel terrible saying this, but I really have no desire to see or talk to these people anymore. Im due to leave in may and move back to the UK...Its time for a change
