Up until last December 23rd, I had been relying on medical marijuana to help me deal with chronic pain issues related to a neck injury suffered while working as a commercial fisherman in a remote area of the Aleutian islands off of Alaska. Unfortunately, dealing with the pain is still a serious issue. With the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder, I have been suffering a lot more – and as a result, so have the people around me.
I’ve tried to keep it to myself, but my normally (?) sunny attitude just isn’t with it in this cold, wet climate. Read More …
I’ve started to lose track of the number of days that it has been since I quit smoking marijuana – and it isn’t because I’m stoned! 🙂 I think today is Day 37 or so and whatever it is, things are continually getting better for me.
Acupuncture treatments have been helping greatly in alleviating the severe pain I’ve been experiencing in my neck and back – and I hope that I will be able to continue them (although my acupuncturist does seem very busy and may be less willing to continue trading). She’s also given my some ideas for self treatment (including hitting myself – believe it or not) and getting a better, buckwheat pillow.
I also hosted a networking breakfast this morning at 7am! There’s no possible way I would have even considered that even just two months ago …

Today is Day 29 in my personal quest to stop smoking the evil weed. It has not been without struggles and frustrations, but overall it has been fairly easy and I am very thankful that I’ve been able to take care of this terrible situation, due in big part to all the great support and encouragement I’ve had along the way.
I say ‘terrible situation’ because I feel more that a little guilty for all the time that I’ve squandered – even though those days are in my past. I no longer feel the need to slow down, ‘mellow out’ or dumb myself down – it doesn’t do anyone any good for me to do that. Read More …
Today is Day 27 of my personal quest to stop smoking marijuana. Feeling very good – mentally and hopefully my latest episode of too much suffering from latest neck injury is calming down.
There are so many great positives that I’m experiencing that I really want to recommend to anyone who may have let pot (or any other substance) take over their lives. Try getting rid of that for 30 days and just see how you feel. I seriously doubt you will want to go back to abusing your substance of choice – as well as your mind and body.

Update: this has been one of these days that started out really well and got progressively more challenging. It seems that the more I tried to help people today, the more things went wrong – and the more that was expected of me. In the end, I didn’t have the capacity to live up to expectations, but at least I’m staying true to myself and my overall needs -without having to smoke a big fat joint – or even take one little hit. Day 27 is in the bag.
