I am 24 and I feel like I ruined my life?

The past 6 years i did nothing much with my life, i hanged out with the WRONG people, you the attention seeking kind people, who dont do anything with their lives but smoke weed and seek attention and i feel so awful because i was different, smart, organized and calm. Now i feel awful about my life, i just want to dump the people and start a new life, i have one friend who keeps bothering me and she keeps interfering with my life, she smokes weed all day and doesn't do much with her life... i dont want to be her friend and anymore and pretty much i just used her when i was feeling bored and needed a place to stay... she is just very annoying. Is it too late for me to follow my dreams because ina few years i want to have kids and i have 8 years left to make something out of my life and reach my goals, these people i hang out with just dont get it... all they want to do is enjo but when your 30... i feel like you will regret not working hard in younger years and following your dreams... what should i do?

  • "i was different, smart, organized and calm"
    Umm, no you weren't. You were doing the exact same thing as you said yourself: wasted time.

    Ditch the people you don't like and who you feel are hindering your progress. Get your lifestyle in order and then talk about having kids.

    • no before that... my older sister, i used to hang out with her was a very bad influence on me.. she dragged me along with her, i never used to be so messy, i Always knew school and such was important but i never had theconfidence

    • Was in a similar boat during my teens because constant drug abuse. My solution was rather radical (move abroad and start fixing yourself in new environment). Sure, I always knew education was important, too. What does it matter, when all you're worried about is your next hit?
      The people arround you influence you in a certain direction. What you have to understand is that if you want to change yourself you must first get rid of the people that have bad influence over you.
