And then I realized I liked weed a lot. That's when my desire to smoke weed started, and then I started smoking weed for a while. And then started getting really dependent on it, and that's when I realized that I had to stop. I don't think it's bad. It's just that for me, it can be a dependency.”

But I never did the actual work.” He later said that he has abused his body in the past and now he is in the recovery process, trying to make sure that he is taking care of the vessel that God has given him.
