Ill get to it. I've smoked everyday for over 7 years. Started out a couple bowls a day. Now around 3 or more joints a day. I did take 3 months off this year. With little effort. It was only hard to quit for the first few days. And yea those few days I would avoid people because of irritability to say the least. Then emotions flood back in and stress is higher during the first week of quitting. Plus its just habit, I like smoking.
It will have you living in your mind. People could use a little help 'thinking if you ask me, it wouldn't hurt to look inward while smoking. But 7 years went by fast. Can I remember, a little bit.
It effects your life.I did smoke to take the edge off, couple puffs when angry. Became a crutch though Im sure. May have made it harder to control my anger. But only because it will slack your discipline. Its easy to light a joint. Its hard to "think your happy thought" So its just a matter of discipline. Get back in control and smoke less.
Its harder to get out of bed now. When smoking everyday you prob wont try as hard to do other things. When your more at peace, worldly things don't matter as much, you can actually see your problems in a new light if you want. Or get a whole different perspective while looking back on a situation. Maybe insight.
Marijuana is a good tool. Unlock parts of your body, mind, and spirit. I've learned many great things while smoking. Life changing things, I do seek those things. They are beneficial and will be remembered long after I quit smoking. If I quit.
It depends on your lifestyle. If your a family man or in an alright mood most of the time, or in a good relationship then why smoke. Unless you smoke to meditate. But without your discipline, it may creep over into the other parts of your life.
(first smoke of the day is like a 'reset' for your mind.) When you wake up in the morning your mind is mostly reset so why smoke first thing in the morning, unless your life is pretty bad.
I will say it depends on what YOU do with it. For meditating and creating, marijuana takes away some friction making it easier to set the mind right.
Few times a month wont hurt. But a few times a week will cause problems in your mood. And your mood effects everything you interact with.
*a good tip for a smoker, maybe don't smoke until the end of the day. When all work is done, then its relax time.
