How I Quit Smoking Pot: Day 22 Continues w Major Set Back
2nd video of the Day. Day started really, really well, but I suffered a major setback today. Probably not the kind you were thinking (hoping for?).
I was about half way through my legs workout today and re-injured my neck. It’s hard to realize how a neck injury would happen from a leg workout, but it did – and it is not good.
I’ve had two herniated discs in my neck for many, many years and they have caused me a lot of grief and a good deal of constant consistent pain. For many years, I was basically disabled because of this condition. At one point I was even addicted to the pain pills (Vicodin) that the doctors continually prescribed for me.
Over the years, I have learned to ‘deal with’ this pain – mostly just living with it and until recently smoking A LOT of pot to keep my mind off of it. Now that I’ve decided to give up the marijuana, I just have to find another solution … One thing is certain: nobody can expect to live anywhere close to a normal life while experiencing this much pain – and I cannot expect that from myself.
I really do apologize for my whining, but I am experiencing a lot of emotions, including anger, frustration and helplessness. I just don’t know what to do.
