Hey everyone, I recently just turned 22 a week ago today and I've been trying to quit/cut down dramatically, marijuana for two years now. I've been smoking since I was 17 years old, which makes me five years with smoking marijuana, even though this seems very short in time, early on I would smoke no less than five blunts a day, I was really addicted then and now looking back I guess I used it to pass time because our town is so boring. I don't want to bore you guys with my story but I basically went through my last year of high school smoking excessively and my first two years of college smoking excessively, I cut down after sophmore year of college but my definition of cut down is totally different from someone else's definition, because I literally smoked all day if I could.
Now I sit here my senior year of college(I graduate at the end of the year), I know what I want to do with my life and that's music, and since everytime I smoke weed nowadays I become so lazy to the point where I won't work on the very thing that brings me joy, this is why I'm trying to quit for a while. In me I'm telling myself that I will smoke but I want to do it when I have something to celebrate, like going 2 months without smoking and within those two months I've made major strides with my music!!
My ultimate goal is to DRAMATICALLY cut down my marijuana intake.(Honestly at this time in life I can't see myself quitting marijuana forever, as I would like to smoke but only on occassion and only after I've taken some sober time to myself and accomplished some of my goals).
At this juncture in my life I have no real friends, because all of my friends are people who smoke everyday and I just can't be around them, I haven't had a real girlfriend since I was 17 (the same time I started). I just want to regain my life, I have a question for any one who can help me.... Do you feel as though my ambition to cut down but smoke every once in a while is a smart thing to do? I know I'm gonna have to show real discipline not to slip back into smoking everyday when I do smoke again. I'm just at a very confused time in my life and I need help. I've read alot of comments in this forum and see so many people trying to regain their life as well and this gives me confidence.
I stopped smoking on 4/20 and hope to not smoke until June 15th.
