You are probably no more or no less emotionally stable than anyone else in a similar situation. You don't really know what your friends are feeling inside. Maybe they have family issues and drug problems but are appearing to cope only on the surface. Maybe when the lights go out, they feel just like you.
If you don't want to talk to a professional about your issues, at least stop the drug use (because you could to go jail or a treatment facility). Then get involved in some activities so you don't have as much time to sit around and stew in your problems. Get involved in clubs or teams at school. Volunteer in the community or get a job (that's easier said than done, I know). Anything to get your mind off your problems and drugs. As far as the different "characters" in your head, it's just a way of coping with your internal dialogue. I don't think it's much different than a little kid having an imaginary friend.
If you do feel like you can't take it anymore, talk to a guidance counselor or school nurse. They can refer you for appropriate help.
How are your grades? If they are good you've got another year of school, max, then off to college and things should go upward from there. If your grades are not good, ask for tutoring or extra help to bring up your grades because college is going to be your ticket outta there. Oh and by the way you don't want to have an arrest record in college.
