Yesterday marked the 11th month since I quit smoking pot – and I almost slipped up.
I’ve been pretty sick the last few days, but have still had to be working long, hard hours on a job that is not much fun – standing and talking to people for 10.5 hours a day. In ordinary circumstances, I would have just stayed home and in bed, getting much needed rest. This is not an ordinary job and I cannot just call in sick.
It’s been tough just to get through the days – but what has been making it harder is that just down the aisle in the warehouse, they are selling fresh holiday wreaths, made of pine branches. I’m constantly getting whiffs of them all day long – many times these smells are just like a really tasty bud-like smell. On several occasions, I swear I was talking to people who had just smoked before walking in.
Not really sure why all of this has made me want to smoke weed again – but it has. Perhaps it is because I’ve been sick, and tired – and suffering from a lot of the pain caused by herniated discs – but regardless, I have been getting serious pangs of wanting to partake – and almost gave in last night. After work I actually came home and pulled out my old stash …. I probably would have put some in a pipe and took a hit or three, but I realized that I had either given or thrown away all my smoking utensils. Then I found some rolling papers – and I decided I would roll a joint – after I ate dinner – and if my girlfriend did not come home in time …
I took my time eating dinner and my girlfriend did get home, just as I was finishing up. I still did inhale the smells from the stash container, but it is now almost a year old and doesn’t smell that great – not nearly as good as those pine Christmas wreaths …
I’m happy to report that today is Day 11 months and 1 day, the last day of my show and that tomorrow I will be able to catch up on all the sleep that I have been missing. Might even make a video to talk about it …
BTW – did you notice that I’ve changed my name to JC Li? That’s another story that I’ve been too tired to write about this week, but will be explaining soon.
How is everyone else doing? Anyone else fighting the good fight? Anyone want to say why they started back up – or were glad that they haven’t? Would like to hear from YOU!
