Today was Day 18 in my personal journey of quitting the use of pot, marijuana, MMJ, cannabis or anything you want to call it. Still getting over being sick, but feeling better and finally able to eat more than a couple of bites of food.
Today was not without it’s frustrations, but also another great day of learning – about myself and others. I was very tempted on several occasions to reach out and let someone know what I thought of their actions, but think I did a pretty good job of refraining. Instead I am trying to use what I learned from them to decide where to focus my time and energy.
I really am trying to focus on the positive, but it is amazing to me how many people want and expect my help, but won’t do anything at all to return the favors. This is not of course everyone, but often seems to be the most demanding people – and those who least deserve any help (or respect). Another thing that I cannot understand is how many people in business can go through their work day and not return phone calls or respond to emails .. owell my rant is over.
A couple of interesting points about the day regarding quitting pot, is that 1) my level of anxiety / frustration / aggravation seems to be diminishing and 2) As I sat down for an early evening meal, I almost instinctively (and unconsciously) reached for a pipe and lighter. I don’t even want to smoke! It was just out of habit, as I used to smoke before and after most meals. I do need to make sure that I continue to get as much sleep as I need so I don’t have those unconscious reactions …
At any rate, all is good – I’m most of the way through Day 18 and still no desire at all to use pot ever again. It certainly helps that my new friends on the blog are making good headway too.
