http://HowIQuitSmokingPot.com Today is Day 15 since I last smoked marijuana. My mood seems to be leveling off and I did not have (or at least remember) any dreams (or nightmares) for a couple of nights – until last night / this morning.
Earlier in the past week, I had experienced some dreams with recurring characters. This morning I experienced a dream with a recurring location – very strange. I was lead into a very large fenced in area with a chain link fence about 8 feet tall – think of a large exhibit in a zoo.
The zoo keeper who let me in and shut the gate behind me, gave me a pair of six shooters (pistols) to wear around my waist on a gun belt – just like in the old west. Then the gate was shut.
I was feeling a bit exhilarated, although calm, when I looked around me and saw some wild animals. A giraffe, a couple of buffaloes and more. It felt pretty cool to be so close to a buffalo – such a large animal.
Then across the yard I saw a large female lion walking around. I was looking at her and then out of the corner of my eye, I see another lioness checking ME out and strolling my way. I tried to remain calm, but slowly but quickly started making my way toward the fence. I could not tell if I could make it to the fence in time to climb over if she decided to attack – but she started at me quickly so I had to find out. I made it to and over the fence just in time to avoid being mauled and eaten.
The ‘zoo keeper’ came and helped me up and dusted me off. He started laughing and pointed at the guns around my waist and said “I guess you didn’t want to use the guns”. I had totally forgot that I even had them – and am not sure if I would have used them had I remembered.
Not sure what this dream means, but I don’t call it a nightmare because I made it out alive – and so did the lioness.
Do you have any idea what this meant? I’d love to hear your interpretations …
By the way, the link that I mentioned in the video about legal marijuana stores opening up here in my hometown of Bellevue can be found at: http://bellevuebusinessjournal.com/2014/05/15/bellevue-city-council-votes-down-proposed-pot-moratorium-four-marijuana-stores-could-open-in-bellevue-this-summer/
It finally happened. I dreamt about smoking pot. In my dream I was hanging out with a friend getting ready to go out and she whipped out a one hitter. I remember being hesitant about taking a toke but did it anyways and immediately after remorse hit me. Pretty intense feeling of guilt as I woke up, but relieved to know that I did not smoke 🙂
My headaches are still there but very slight, sleeping patterns are still sporadic. My reward, though, is that it’s DAY 16 and I have no desire whatsoever to smoke. I don’t have an urgency to go to a dispensary to get pot anymore (perhaps that will come back but at least I know that I will fight it and win). My mind is getting clearer every day from the 17 years of fog; short term memory is finally coming back. Remembering people’s names upon greeting is a big thing and I’m slowly getting there. I’m not aimlessly multi-tasking anymore, yet focusing on one thing at a time with great concentration and feeling a great sense of accomplishment. I’m starting to meditate again as well as working out. Drinking a ton of water and eating better food (not having a munch fest anymore). Best of all, my skin has improved, my lungs feel more free and I am genuinely happier.
If only I had known…I would have done this sooner 😉 But better now than never!!!!
Peace and love.
