    It is called a group of friends that smoke marijuana and all sit and a group and talk about how much better you all feel.

    There may be support groups that are related to your specific ailment.  For instance, if your chronic pain from cancer, there are cancer support groups.

    Here in Canada there are many support groups for people with chronic pain. If you do a search for groups for chronic pain, many sites are listed for both the USA and Canada.

    Like everything else you're looking for in life, you just have to ask around, do your research and dig.  Be grateful there are more support groups to chose from than say--10 to 20 years ago?  Ask other people who suffer from the same chronic pain that you do.  Ask your doctor, therapist, hospital spokesperson, health care professionals, etc.  Check your local newspaper and the throwaways for schedules.  There is always hope and people out there who are willing to help you.  Don't settle for the ones who say, "I'm so sorry, but I can't help you."
