I quit drinking a few years ago after realizing I couldn’t take the physiological side effects anymore.
I looked terribly on a day to day basis, and consistently felt poor symptoms whenever I was stuck waiting for another shot or to get anywhere where I could buy a beer.
When my wife asked to have a conversation, she leveled with me about the drinking. Hearing it in her words snapped me back in place. I had a fire burning inside to change and stop the substance abuse. After getting clean, I decided to try weed for the reasons I consistently self-medicated with booze. Even though cannabis is still something you take in, it’s completely incomparable to alcohol. The latter is a literal poison, killing brain cells and wrecking your liver and digestive tract. It’s so addictive the withdrawal symptoms from long term use can literally kill you if you’re not on it. Even though marijuana still has minimal addictive qualities, it was worth the risk. I’m happy I took the plunge and decided to allow cannabis a chance. It eases my anxieties and quells my depressive thoughts like nothing else. Whenever I drink booze, I never feel like the drug is successfully calming my nerves. Cannabis is good as well because it is a plant, it has so many different varieties in strain selection. I have stuck with indica strains from the cannabis shop because they’re the most sedating and pain relieving types I have found. I’m fascinated by strains that have bright buds in particular. I have been told it has to do with the temperature in which they were grown.
