I do not believe in mind control by a living being per se, but I do believe in the power of influence. You need to contact your subconscious mind for any thoughts you may not have realized you had that could have impacted your decisions. Especially thoughts involving this friend. The tarot card is another possible subconscious influence. This is related to psychology, not magick. But if you had started to let yourself slip, chances are it progressed from the small slip like my sisters alcoholism. And if you had any such depression, maybe related to this friend or maybe not related to him, it could cause a decrease in self esteem and will power that would cause you to behave that way. From a magic perspective, the tarot card may be an omen. I don't read tarot nor do I know what card it is, so I can't say if it's relevant. But I do believe in the effectiveness of tarot cards, so watch out for that. My advice to you would be to settle the psychological aspects by getting in touch with your inner self and working on chakras. Meditation and yoga may help. In addition, make sure you seek professional help for any substance abuse problems, because they will greatly hinder your contacting your subconscious mind and spirit. A mental health care provider or counselor of some sort is also helpful in getting an action plan to get your life back on track, and make sure you plan goals and solutions for yourself. Then, look into this card. If it's negative, I would advise you get rid of it or hand it back to your friend. If it seems unrelated to the situation, don't worry about it.
