I used to simply have a major drinking problem.
- I know that alcoholism has many other genetic influences, however in my case it was just stress plus boredom.
I would pound cocktails until I got blackout drunk or did something stupid, which turned out to be rather often; then after school I discovered the joys of smoking marijuana, plus started to drink much less. Weed settles my nerves separate from making me act a fool, or lose my temper. The only complication arises when I am drinking booze plus getting stoned at the same time. I can get so high that I forget how much I’m drinking, plus then the cumulative effects of the booze plus the cannabis get too much for me to handle. I consistently have cannabis at home, usually many weird strains so I can choose the one that fits my mood, although I never keep alcohol in the house! Cannabis is medicine, however to me booze is like a ticking time bomb! When I go out on the city with friends, I will take a few cannabis edibles with me, however even then I am tempted to drink. I found a relaxing solution to my problem, when the local dispensary started selling cannabis drinks. Now I can actually drink socially separate from needing alcohol, because the cannabis drinks provide me a wicked buzz! One day I hope all bars plus taverns keep cannabis drinks in stock, because I suppose 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 drinking beer or liquor!
