Today is my first day without weed in several years. I have been smoking every day for about 11 years now.
I've come to the realization that since my life isn't what I want it to be right now - that because of that smoking pot is a bad idea. I am trying to start a business, and talked my way into being in the office only 3 days a week so I have 2 days off to work on my business - and then instead I just get high on all my days off. So stupid.
I've used weed as a way to not deal with a lot of my problems for way too long. I can't ignore that i'm not developing as a person as much as I should be because I have this crutch in my life.
The only time I have ever managed to quit successfully more than a week was by drinking a lot for awhile to ween myself off of it. I'm sure a lot of people would say that is a terrible idea but it did work - I just caved later. So I have this bottle of vicodin left over from the dentist, and am going to take one every day after work for the next week - hopefully by Tuesday when I run out I will have that intense craving to smoke out of my system. It never really goes away - but last time I quit the first week was the hardest by far.
Wish me luck.
