Now I can also drink socially without needing alcohol, because the cannabis drinks give me a wicked buzz! One afternoon I hope all bars and taverns keep cannabis drinks in stock, because I think they are pretty amazing
I used to have a major drinking problem. I know that alcoholism has genetic influences, however in my case it was just stress and boredom. I would totally pound cocktails until I got blackout drunk or did something stupid, which turned out to be rather often! After university I finally discovered the joys of smoking marijuana, and started to drink much less. Weed simply settles my nerves without making me act a fool, or lose my temper. The only real concern arises when I am drinking booze and getting stoned at the same time. I can get so incredibly high that I forget how much I’m drinking, and then the cumulative effects of the booze and the cannabis get too much for me to handle. I always have good cannabis at home, usually several different strains so I can choose the one that fits my mood, although I never actually keep alcohol in the house! Cannabis is medicine, however to me booze is like a ticking time bomb! When I go out in the neighborhood with friends, I will take a few cannabis edibles with me, however even then I am tempted to drink. I found a charming solution to my problem, when the local dispensary started selling cannabis drinks. Now I can also drink socially without needing alcohol, because the cannabis drinks give me a wicked buzz! One afternoon I hope all bars and taverns keep cannabis drinks in stock, because I think they are pretty amazing. If you’ve never actually tried cannabis drinks before, I suggest giving them a chance. They are so much better than simply drinking corona or liquor!
