The fact that you have been able to keep a 'stimulating job' for the past seven years seems to indicate you are not lazy. What is more interesting to me is not that you have kept the same job for some time, but that you use the word 'stimulating'; it seems you have realised that for something to hold your atention, you need to be interested in it.
I wonder if you have seen your GP with your concerns of ADD? Your GP will be able to refer you to a psychologist who can assess you and make a diagnosis if there is one to be made, and give you various options of how to treat it which may involve a change in diet, medication and/or an excercise based programme to name a few.
I am concerned with the use of marijuana as a method of coping. Although this may appear to help in the short term, long term use of marijuana can affect ones memory, ability to concentrate and problem solve and can negatively impact the learning process. An appointment with your GP would start the ball rolling; keeping yourself interested is the next step to finding solutions to your questions.
