The Lounge>Not smoking pot
rabblerouser 06:20 PM 07-31-2018
So, for the first time in my adult life, for several reasons, I am abstaining from ingesting anything with THC.

DAY 3 :

Jittery, anxious. No coffee this morning. Stomach is..."tight."

Yogurt for breakfast.

The day seemed to drag on and on, in a painful way.

I have some real anxiety issues, and my self-control is being tested.

Anyone ever take a 'hiatus' or quit and have some...'side effects'?

I could take a benzo or a painkiller, but I'm really not a fan of either...

Trying to be normal.

Pot opened my mind, helped me find humor in things when things werenít going well, instilled GOOD decision making...seriously, I would kick back and think things through thoroughly before making decisions unlike alcohol...which brings out the impulsive, 50 foot tall and nuke bomb proof version of me that I hate. I credit some of my worst decisions Iíve made in life to alcohol. I lose my inhibitions sometimes. Never with pot...ever.

And now I work at a place where I am subject to random piss tests. I just got off work and after a stressful night like tonight, there is nothing that I would rather do right now than just kick back and smoke a bowl and watch Always Sunny. But no. Random piss tests. And I make relatively decent money, so it would be catastrophic if I lost my job. It pisses me the **** off. I hate having to resort to the occasional beer-drinking after work because alcohol is, for sure, much worse for me than weed is. Seriously, **** this shit. I wish they would test you in a manner which they can tell when you had smoked and if you were stoned at work. All I want to do is smoke a ****ing bowl when I get off work in the morning and the kids are off to school...and there is nothing ****ing wrong with that. Hell, being 3rd shift, itíd ****ing help me sleep. And of course, alcohol keeps me up.
You found weed helped you sleep? I felt the same way in terms of it helping me get to sleep but not for quality of sleep. I remember being stoned a lot before going to bed and barely dreaming. I think marijuana has an effect on the REM sleep cycle where disrupts the last stage of it and thus we donít dream. Not dreaming at night sucks. It was no coincedence to me as to why I wasnít remembering information.

Iíve quit now for about a month and Im dreaming like crazy and also remembering stuff way better than I did going to sleep at night stoned. I think marijuana plays a role in impairing our memory by disrupting the last stage of the REM sleep cycle. I feel that difference at least in my life.

I had awesome, deep, vivid dreams after smoking. Must all depend on the person.

I listened to a Joe Rogan podcast who had this sleep scientist on there and he was absolutely adamant that pot prevents you from sleeping well or right.

Alcohol the same thing. It fucks with your brains ability to shut off and do the repair its supposed to be doing while you sleep.

Sometimes not so much.
Have you tried melatonin? Itís the chemical that tells your body itís time to sleep. Itís natural and cheap as hell.

It must be addictive if NFL players are willing to throw millions of dollars per year away on it. Every week, someone voluntarily releases a large salary because they have to smoke.

The NFL is stupid for not allowing players to smoke.

I sold to Demarcus Ware before the Monday night game against the Texans in 2016.

See how long I took to say that online, Demarcus?!

The only difference I've ever noticed between partaking and not partaking is that my dreams get incredibly vivid when I don't partake. That's it. No cravings, no change in appetite, no difference at all except for the really vivid dreams.

They don't throw away millions of dollars because they're addicted to weed, they throw away millions of dollars because they're addicted to having low IQs.

When I was smoking pot regularly in college I felt immensely dumber and less-driven the more I smoked. The feeling of having foggy-brain the morning after smoking was horrible, especially when having to sit through an already-boring lecture.

Have nothing against pot, and I know it benefits a lot of people medicinally, but glad my personal recreational use of it is in the past.

Doing anything in excess is no bueno. 300 days a year is way no bueno.
