What a week!!!! So much happened, yet so little. The biggest issue I’ve had has been the use of marijuana. I used it to replace harder drugs, and even though it works, it’s not working at the same time too.
So I made a list of my Pros and Cons to check my progress and reassess when I should start trying to wean myself down from my current consumption.
Because of marijuana aka ganja aka the reefer, I can sometimes sleep for 6 hours straight without waking up. This is pretty much a miracle compared to the last ten years of my life. I have to pee in the middle of the night a few times during the week, so when the 6 hour slumber nights happen, I feel like I’m the Michael Jordan of nap time.
My anxiety and overthinking of situations has been reduced by 75% in my mind. I don’t have stats to back this percentage up, but I’m someone that goes by feel, and to me, I fell that it’s the right number. Also, finding the right strain for me was quite key, that being Jack Herrer. It helps me focus.
I’m chill as fuck all the time, and the calmness makes me feel good about myself. I’d have fits of manicism, crazy energy or anger, but now I kinda just stay in my bubble and outside forces don’t seem to affect me as much. It’s like I’m a sea turtle just going about my day.
I’ve caught up on all the TV shows that my friends told me to watch and now we can have conversations about them.
I’m tired when I wake up, like in a way where I don’t really want to get out of bed. However, once I’m up, I’m up. Even though it’s still an improvement from the shitty tiredness I’d have from using other drugs, it’s still a Con. So in comparison to my previous life, this is better, but it’s still not ideal.
I eat way more shitty food because marijuana increases my appetite. And the use of the word shitty is appropriate because it’s not like I’m eating vegetables when these cravings hit. It’s more like eating cheap dollar store popcorn, which is actually more delicious than movie theatre popcorn, and that actually scares the crap out of me. What are they putting in it that makes it taste so good as it sits on a shelf for 4 weeks calling out my name? Yeah, I’m gonna get cancer for sure now.
My motivation to improve this website and be 10 steps ahead when writing articles etc., is at an all-time low when it should be at an all-time high. Since the Google Search Algorithm update in August, this site has been bleeding visitors with no end in sight. Fuck Google!!!! So trying to figure how to combat this problem has been slow on my end and partly it’s because of my newfound marijuana use. The other part of the problem is that no one I ask knows how to fix this problem either.
That’s it for this week and my new boring life, but I’ll have a great story for next week as I was assaulted on the street this morning. Yes, I was literally punched in the head from behind and did not know it was coming………. What a cliffhanger!
