What quitting weed did for me
Really, I’ve been consuming delta-8 THC, however, that’s besides the fact. I got to the point where that was the only thing I looked forward to. I was literally a drug addict.
I knew it was time to quit. So I threw away all my paraphernalia in the trash regardless of how much I had left. Gone. Just like that. I won’t lie, I cried a little.
But as soon as I started thinking of other things, my mood instantly changed. I had a new life. I could do anything. I could focus on school, finances, doing the thing I’ve been holding back on. My options were limitless. I was free.
The mind of a drug addict, isn’t one that’s ghostly in nature. You’re still you, however, weed literally becomes your life. You think weed, you talk weed, you do anything that’s weed; and that’s a problem. I don’t recommend anyone smoke it for any reason, but, if you’re really curious, I’d say give it a try. I’m not one of those people who say, “WEED IS THE DEVIL!!!” No. Those people are the ones that need to smoke it.
Anyway, I’ll begin to tell you some of the benefits of quitting weed. But first, I’ll tell you some of the positives of not quitting weed. Firstly, it’s a good drug to just spend your Tuesday evening with. You know, sit back on your recliner, good movie on the TV, and a little bit of weed to enjoy. You don’t know relaxation until you’ve had this experience. But, that’s beside the point. To quit weed, you need to be smoking it first…a lot. And, I’m not saying I’m a degenerate college student who doesn’t have their shit together, but I am someone who’s still trying to figure their life out. Quitting was just a step in this journey. Ok finally, I’ll tell you some of the benefits I’ve been experiencing. Firstly, I’ve been getting wayy better sleep, more vivid dreams, and no grogginess in the mornings. Secondly, my social life seems to have improved dramatically. It’s as if my intellect got upgraded by two points (maybe weed does make you dumber). Thirdly, I have much more time on my hands to do other things such as: writing blogs on medium, building my twitter brand, and (this is the best one) saving a ton of money. Oh yeah, this stuff can be e x p e n s i v e. I’ve probably spent over $10,000 on weed over the course of five years. If your jaw just dropped, good. Drug habits are not a cheap lifestyle.
Was it easy? No, I wouldn’t say it was easy quitting. I mean, we all have temptations…about something… Imagine, that one thing you know isn’t good for you is gone. You would have so much more time on your hands. You could do anything!
I’ll end this with a question. What price are you willing to pay for freedom?
