|P is for Practical|
Yep. When I was at college, I smoked quite a bit of weed. Before I started, I read a lot - basically that it was non-addictive physically, can be psychologically addictive in large amounts, but is generally not that bad.
Of course, in the UK, everyone smoked their joints mixed with tobacco, and I became addicted to it.
Now? I'm addicted to tobacco, but haven't smoked weed regularly in years. Probably been 2 years since my last toke at a party. It just doesn't appeal anymore - I value being able to think.
My attempts at quitting are sporadic. It's got to be the nastiest addiction out there. The longest I've lasted is 6 months until a very traumatic event triggered using it again.
Nasty stuff from evil companies.
I'm currently lasting a couple of days at a time, but am thinking of trying hypnotherapy and acupuncture soon as a double whammy.
Guess I need to walk around with a picture of my kid dangling in from of my face all day ;-)
