A friend of mine recently took three months off from drinking.
It was not court mandated, if that’s what you are thinking, nor did his wife tell him to do it.
He simply realized that his drinking had been getting steadily out of hand. He didn’t want to quit drinking for good, but he also didn’t want to become an alcoholic, so he selected a dry period of 90 days. By his reasoning, if he couldn’t go 90 days without a drink then he was already an alcoholic. I am happy for him and all, but now he has the audacity to say I should take 90 days off from using cannabis. He’s not wrong in saying that I smoke a lot of marijuana, but I just don’t see how it’s his business. I work a good job, I pay my bills and meet all my responsibilities and stay out of trouble with the law so why shouldn’t I smoke as much cannabis as I want? Unlike alcohol, which causes irreversible damage to your liver and other organs, cannabis has no proven long term health effects. The medicinal qualities of cannabis far outweigh the negatives, although if I’m being honest I just love getting blazed. The medicinal qualities of marijuana are just good to bring up in arguments with people. I am just going to take a little distance from this friend for a while, let him get his judgments out of his system, because me and cannabis get along great and I’m not about to break up with my sweet Mary Jane.
