Tied up with grass, before that I still used stamps, sometimes a hairdryer, but I finished with them a long time ago, I haven't used any of this for more than a year. But on the grass he sat tightly, smoked regularly. There was even a month when I smoked absolutely every day. Well, then a few more months with a maximum break per day.

Firstly, there is a lot more money, because you don't have to spend it on drugs, and now the herb is not as cheap as even 5 years ago.

Secondly, you experience a huge buzz from sobriety. I really began to pay attention to this, I directly feel the "freshness" of my thoughts.

Thirdly, I began to sleep better, a regime appeared, and based on this, I also had an appetite in the morning (and not like before, when I woke up at 5 pm and wanted to eat only by 8 o'clock).

Well, in general, this is an awesome state of health, that's just how I feel a special thrill from it. And although I haven't smoked pot for just a month, I don't want to return to it, although let's say I don't mind blowing a good plan somewhere in LA or in Amsterdam, but nothing more. When my whole life consists of looking for money for drugs and looking for an option to buy them, then this is such bullshit that when you remember this, you feel ashamed of yourself and that I have come to this, because this is fucking not normal. And the bonus from the "past" life is that now it is necessary to close completely 2 past sessions, while the current one is still beginning. Therefore, I understand that I will never return to such a life.

I am a person who quit smoking twice, the first time for two months, the second time a year later for three months. Here you can carry on demagoguery for a long time, whether I quit in the end or not, but personally I am reducing everything to the wording "temporarily quit". Why not finally? I don’t know, my assumption is that I was too psychologically addicted to cigarettes, while you were waiting for someone to smoke or standing on the balcony against the background of a beautiful view, having a cigarette in your hands, refreshing your thoughts and thinking about something, etc. The physical addiction caused by nicotine and the withdrawal type is nothing compared to the feeling of a certain emptiness that arose while not smoking. None of my friends smokes, and I have never resorted to a cigarette as some kind of sedative medicine. There were no external stimuli or pushing for smoking, except for my own internal ones. However, I deviated from the essence of the question posed, but still I will give two quotes that will (probably) understand me as much as possible:

"Smoking allows you to believe that you are doing something when you are not doing anything." / p>

"But if you have a pack of cigarettes in your pocket, then everything is not so bad today."

"A smoker who quit smoking is like a newbie on a nudist beach: he does not know what to do with my hands. "

In those moments when I didn’t smoke, I didn’t feel any psychological relief, but physically the changes were colossal. Let's start with the fact that I stopped getting tired, shortness of breath disappeared, there was a desire (which really caught fire as if) to jump, run, etc. There was so much energy that I could hardly restrain myself from day to day, so that one of the fair sex would not be raped. There were no problems with sleep. As a result, at the beginning of the second month of "temporary refusal" I went to the doctor's office to quit smoking, after completing all the necessary checks, including fluorography, breathing into the tube, measuring blood pressure, etc., all the data showed that I had ideal lungs , but some problems with the blood supply system - I have cold hands even in summer, and the doctor (probably stupid in order to prove something) blamed everything on nicotine and other carcinogenic substances .. But I have been smoking since I was 14 .... An equipment error is unlikely, falsification of data by doctors is generally ruled out. Here, believe it or not. In general, it was like that. This is all about cigarettes and their side effects, especially for me.

I have never tried anything from drugs, I hate when the mind becomes dull and the reaction is lost, the ability to act quickly, etc. For the same reason, I do not drink anything stronger than beer from alcohol (and it can be 20%, although it is usually imported and terribly expensive), and even then in relatively small volumes and quite rarely, because the desire does not often appear.

You may ask why I didn't switch to electronic cigarettes and other technological advances? Yes, because it's like instead of a real woman who loves you, etc. use a rubber doll. I'm already silent prabout the fact that electronic girls will never get high / saturate their lungs and soul.
