Prince Harry Talks About Trauma On A Live-streamed Session

Prince Harry says marijuana ‘really helped' him deal with trauma

My wife saved me. I was stuck in this world. And she was from a different world and helps sort of draw me out of that. But none of none of the elements of my life now would have been possible without me seeing it for myself.- Prince Harry
As we know, it's the one. It's, hard to change, it's almost impossible to change other people. You got to start with changing yourself, and allow that growth to happen. But yes, my partner is an exceptional human being. And I'm eternally grateful for the wisdom and the space that she's been able to give to me.- Prince Harry
Harry talked about Meghan's suggestion that he go to therapy in his book, and he told Dr. Maté more about it. The Duke of Sussex talked to Dr. Gabor Mate, a trauma expert, about many things. They talked about his mother's death, drug use, his time in the army, and his relationship with other members of the royal family.
He said that some parts of his childhood were "incredible" and others were "incredibly painful." He also said that he and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, "try their best to make sure you don't hand on any traumas that you have as a parent." During the live online interview, Harry also said that he had used psychedelic drugs to relax and had used cocaine to feel like he belonged.
Prince Harry has talked in the past about taking psychedelics. In an interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes in January 2023, he said that he wouldn't recommend people use the drugs for fun, but that “doing it with the right people, if you are suffering from a huge amount of loss, grief or trauma, then these things have a way of working as a medicine.” He thinks that trying out new treatments like ayahuasca, psilocybin, and mushrooms helped him deal with the death of his mother.
During a live stream interview, Prince Harry said that using marijuana and psychedelics helped him deal with trauma in his life. This is because he has attention deficit disorder (ADD), which makes it hard for him to focus on one thing at a time. Prince Harry said this about using drugs:
(Cocaine) didn’t do anything for me, it was more a social thing and gave me a sense of belonging for sure, I think it probably also made me feel different to the way I was feeling, which was kind of the point. Marijuana is different, that actually really did help me- Prince Harry
Prince Harry also said in the interview that he had told other members of the Royal family to go to therapy He said that as a royal he couldn't be himself and always "felt different."
People paid £19.12 to watch the "intimate" chat, which was live-streamed and put on by Penguin Random House, Harry's publisher. They also got a copy of Harry's book Spare for free. Harry also told Dr. Maté that after going to therapy, he realized he had to get away.
