I wanted to start a thread or find one where people like me who want to stop drinking alcohol. A thread where like minded Cannabis users can share stories of success or failure and ways to help people give up this dangerous drug. This thread is not for people to make fun, argue or discuss the choice to live without alcohol, but a place to offer support and check in to let others know they are not alone in this quest.
I've been thinking about starting a thread like this. Quitting cigarretes was one of the hardest thing I did, I was only able to because I got really sick back in the day and used that to quit since I couldn't smoke for a couple months anyway. Cannabis was my ally and with Cannabis, I was able to quit smoking that useless vice.
Alcohol seems even harder to drop however, because I love the flavor of beer and wine, when I drink, I get a false sense of euforia, and it's so readily available. It also is proving to be more and more confusing as the years go by, the side effects are devastating for me. My digestive system goes to crap, but worse is the confusion and mental depression it causes. It has clouded my mind for years and nearly ruined my marriage, which I am trying to patch together at the moment as well..
Over the years I can feel alcohol taking a toll on my emotions and irritability when I'm not drinking. It is a terrible man-made drug that is the biggest cause of ruined families, and personal confusion and conflict.
Anyone else feel the same? Anyone want to take the challenge? Check in here and give some people support. Imagine the amount of peole that will read this thread and hopefully be moved to at least try to substitute the poisonous alcohol for Cannabis only. Like Cigarretes, I know it's going to take a change in lifestyle even.
At first I decided to stay a period without drinking, a month, whatever, but I've tried that many times only to come back drinking again routinely. I came to the conclusion that I love Ale and wine like a chocoholic loves chocolate, I can drink it daily and in large amounts..I can't only drink one or two beers or a cup of wine..
I'll check in and give my progress daily if possible, and if i slip, I'll post it in hope of getting some support or some insight on my weaknesses. This is hard and embarrassing, but I know I'm not the only one who relies too much on alcohol when I have such a wonderful and inspiring herb that doesn't cause the side effects and destroying effects of alcohol.
Anyone have any stories or want to take on this daily mission, this battle? I'd love any input, techniques, success stories, failures, anything, anyone down for the challenge?
Substitute alcohol with life, and how Cannabis helps, or not.?
I am over poisoning my body and mind..
