I smoke weed every day. That is until two days ago. I know how shallow this sounds but I hoping to have the will power to stop smoking it at least during the week to begin with. I enjoy it but I would not advocate it to anyone. I do not perform as well at work anymore. I am always 'tired' and last night and the night before I really struggled to get to sleep. I am obviously addicted to weed and I am a bit frightened by that prospect. I have never been a big drinker. My friends would tell you I am the sensible one etc. It began quite innocently, a few joints here a few there with mates, usually on weekends, then I went travelling in 2007 and basically every day was a holiday in amongst some casual work to keep the money coming in. I just kept smoking and kept smoking and nearly 2 years since I have been back I am still smoking. It does seem to lure you in that way, slowly and surely like an old friend. Like any chemically based drug, just because its 'natural' doesnt mean it cannot damage you.
I am working hard to curb my addition but if you don't try it you can't get hooked in and find yourself in the same position as me. I am not stupid, I am a 34 year old woman, with a full time corporate job witha good head on my shoulders - not the 'type' to become an addict, and at the same time just the type - human!
