So I have recently starting going to AA meetings, but since I quit I started smoking more. I love smoking. I think it is great. It's not like I use it to hide or forget about anything. I enjoy smoking and love how it makes me feel. I understand why my therapist is concerned, because I am replacing alcohol with pot, but I feel completely different when I smoke. When I drink I become a different person. When I smoke I am the same person, I'm happy and feel amazing. I don't see what the big deal is? I guess I'm just not ready to quit. This is going to be the first holidays that I am sober so I was looking forward to smoking rather than drinking. My therapist says pot is a gateway drug, but is it? I don't think about drinking when I smoke and I sure as hell don't want to do any other drugs. Am I being dramatic or is this really a problem? I smoke about a joint a day. Sometimes I smoke one in the afternoon and one at night. Obviously I want to quit before I go back to school, but is it so wrong to just enjoy these last couple of months? My therapist gave me a worksheet to complete, and it has a bunch of questions to answer. It's about marijuana addiction. I kind of laughed when I read it. I guess I'm not used to the idea of pot as an addiction. I was never really a big smoker in the past, just used it socially. Idk, I don't want to make an excuses. I am just not ready to quit yet. How did you guys do it?
That's the title of the memoir I'm writing about the next eighteen months. Seriously. In 18 months, I'll be 60 years old. I think of myself as someone who's battled food addiction all her life, but the reality of it is that with a few short-lived exceptions, I'm actually someone who's mostly just given in to her food addictions her whole life. I've thought about battling it, I've belittled...
Hi, what do I do after having taken psychiatric pills for 12 years? I have problems with my memory and analysis. Is there something I can take to detox from all those pills? Thank you.
