    And if you don’t like to smoke it you can use butter or edibles now. I do the butter and just a little dab will do me.

    I love being buzzed and drunk but I hate how consumed I become with it. It’s all that I think about when I’m drinking.

    I hear you on that. Weed bills run up like alcohol bills do.

    Now that I think about it, catching a buzz is quite the pricey endeavor.

    Not for me. An 1/8 last a long time for me cause I just use a one hitter. I actually only use the butter now. It should be legal.

    Sorry my friend, hope I wasn't rubbing that in with my random "I want weed" post. I was drunk when I wrote it but trying just to be sober for the next two weeks. Better for me and my tendency to addict.

    When I work out I feel better than when I’m drunk. Also waking up in the morning and not being hungover feels better than being drunk. Being an active and present member of my family is better than being drunk. Lots of things are better. When I’m not drunk I have choices. When I’m drinking my only choice is to keep drinking.

    Same way. And I'm going to try and stay sober for these weeks instead of using booze to deal.

    Been off booze again since that last time I messaged. Feeling good and in control but can't sleep (I use drugs to treat that). Fortunately, the prospective new employer said they don't care about my medical marijuana and I can smoke again. Looking forward to taking some tonight and actually sleeping!!

    That’s great they won’t care.

    Did you say on here earlier that you take other medicines? My meds help me sleep. Do you have any that help with that?

    I think we were emailing about that. I take gabapentin, citalopram, and lithium (hoping to ween off those over years with work). The gabapentin used to help me sleep a bit, but mostly I don't like the sleep drugs they had me try in the past. I was either drowsy the next day or worried about abuse (a lot of that in my family). So I found weed is a pretty good "natural" cure :).

    Still feeling positive? Did you get back to JJ?

    Damn dude. I hope I didn’t say to much. I take serious shit said to me when pm’ing or emailing. Hope I didn’t say anything that wasn’t meant for here. I’m sorry if so.

    My meds help me sleep some.

    If weed helps you sleep then great! It kind of keeps me awake a bit. I was always weird as in when I smoke or eat weed I like to hike and do shit outside.

    Not as positive and no jj yet.

    Ha, no worries at all. If I was concerned I would have just said that and declined to list all the ridiculous meds.

    I wish I was like you when it came to being active on weed, Rogan seems to say he's the same and I think it sounds fun. But sorry you're not feeling as positive. What's going on?

    I’m good. Kids were just bugging me till my wife got home. That is I think the fallacy that everyone can be happy all the time. Very few people are happy all the time.

    Went to a meeting last night. Felt good as I hadn’t been in probably a year. Have some issues I need to take care of. I’m going to try and limit my posting on here for a bit as I think I’m on here compulsively. I’ve been quitting drinking then relapsing quitting drinking then relapsing for some time now. I’ve said it before but I’m ready to quit drinking for the long haul. It’s just no fun anymore and it makes me not reach my potential as a person. I think meetings will help. I’m also going to try and minimize things I do compulsively ie Facebook... I need to be more active with my family. I need to start focusing my energy in a more positive manner. I also think prayer and meditation will help. Anyways I’ll check back in soon. Be well friends and Godspeed.

    Weed will be legal here in 7 days,

    wanna give it a try. Maybe it will help cut back on the beer (relax for a bit after the kids go to bed) and sleep, my sleep sucks and I hate taking the pills.

    I don't smoke so I hope they have options like spray or drops.

    Take care brother. It's a battle you must fight every day. When things are going well don't let your guard down.


    God grant me the serenity to change the things I can (myself)
    The courage to accept the things a cannot (other people)
    And the wisdom to know the difference.

    You can do it friend.

    You'll do it. And if you're ever feeling like you need to vent, whatever, reach out.

    Get some butter or cannabis coconut oil. I put a dab in my coffee.

    Doing great. Been hitting a meeting everyday. Been meditating and feeding my head with good things instead of Facebook and porn. I feel a lot better. Hope everyone is well.

    I drink every night before bed to relax,

    My kids have never seen me drink but I do every night.

    My youngest has autism and I have crohn's it's stressful as fuck and you have to wind down somehow,

    booze is hard on the system and I'm hoping I can find a gentle alternative.

    Blood pressure is high, trt is low, psoriasis is full blown.

    Maybe something else can help.
