This one might fire some people up, but I want to write about this because people need to understand.
First I want to start by saying an addiction is an addiction no matter what substance it is. There’s no drug out there that’s healthy for you. They’ve all got some sort of adverse side effect and that’s that.
So, let the fireworks show begin.
Weed is a drug. And just like all other drugs, it’s not good for you.
I know this is most of y’all right now:
If that’s not you, this is definitely you (if you don’t agree):
I’m sorry, I’m dying laughing right now. Meme’s are awesome.
Anyway, no I’m not stupid and yes I’m 1000% serious. Weed is a drug, and it’s not good for you. Especially over a long period of time. I’m not condemning any of you if you smoke. All I’m saying is weed might be the less evil of most drugs, but really it is a drug and with an extended period of abuse, it’s not good. Another thing that might make everyone’s panties in a wad…
Weed can be a gateway drug.
Bam. I exploded the internet.
My bet on the way your face looks right now:
Did I mention I love meme’s?
Anywho, y’all gotta understand that NOWHERE in my latest posts did it say “Weed will solve all your problems! Go find your local head shop and start smoking it up!”
BECAUSE ITS NOT TRUE!!!!!
You wanna lie to yourself and say weed is the best thing that ever happened and you’re perfectly fine smoking every day all day maintaining a normal relationship and job and whatever else have you, FINE. Good on ya.
Try and quit.
Don’t give me that bullshit either, “I can quit any time I want, I just don’t want to”
WELL OF F&%$%*# COURSE YOU DON’T WANT TO BECAUSE YOU’RE ADDICTED A$$HOLE! 😉
Anyway, that’s how I feel. And to back these feelings up, I’ll start quoting from someone I spoke with earlier today who wishes to remain anonymous.
These are the text messages between the two of us.
Anonymous: I weaned off before I left. Came home and had help getting rid of the rest. Don’t have a bit left lol. It’s been touchy here and there but all and all definitely worth it!
Me: I’m so happy for you! I always knew you could do it 🙂
Anon: Thank you. It was time. Everything’s improved for me so far. Didn’t know I could pull it off but I’ve had a lot of help. Helps none of my current friends are using no more. I’ve had a good support system, even my wife was dumbfounded.
Me: Well it’s great that you have the support of your wife and best friend. Those two are really important and of course I’m always here if you need to talk. Have you checked out my blog yet? I was about to branch some of my posts to cover different drugs I’ve dealt with in the past but I’ve got about 8 posts or so already 🙂
Anon: I’ve seen a few. Reading about it kinda triggers memories for me right now. The only time I struggle is at night when I get too bored. The anxiety in the morning during the second and third week were f%&$*@# murder! It has subsided this week and I’m a little more balanced. Ten years worth of abuse coming out wasn’t going to be the easiest trip for sure. I’m learning and dealing just fine though. I’ll get through it but I’m probably in for a while of ups and downs until my mind and body even out. Some yucky side effects for sure lol.
Me: Hey I understand. While pot obviously isn’t a hard drug it can have hard effects with usage over a long period of time. I’m just very excited to see you moving forward from it. The mood swings might last a couple months but as long as you know why, it won’t be so bad.
Anon: Mood swings are nothing right now. It’s the physical aspect and the mind feeling like mush is the hard part. What most people don’t realize is that pot can work just like hard drugs. When used in excess over long periods of time is very detrimental for any person.
The conversation went on a little further but nothing too too important. This is something everyone needs to realize. Pot, weed, whatever you call it; it’s a drug. It can have some seriously bad side effects. And for every one of you out there shaking your head (if you even read this far) saying “That won’t ever happen to me. I can control it.” I said the same thing.
And if you don’t know what happened to me, go read My Story. The first post I ever made. You’ll see.
I’m challenging everyone who’s reading this laughing their a$$es off at me right now to quit smoking for one week, if you’re still fine, do two weeks. If you can honestly tell me you feel no pain or withdrawal, keep on keepin on.
That’s the best advice I can give y’all. See what life is like without it. If it sucks, it’s because you’re ADDICTED. Quit living in denial and start living for yourself.
Until next time, lovelies.
