    It's Time To Move On...

    I've been smoking weed pretty consistently since I was 15, and now I'm 27. In the past 12 years, I've had several unsuccessful attempts at quitting, or attempting to cut it down to once a week, once a month, quarterly, etc. I think the longest I've been able to go without a...

    I started smoking weed in middle school.

    It was my escape, point blank. I come from a broken family and I always smoked when I knew I had to be around them- it seemed to make it a more tolerable experience around my family. Oh how I loved that feeling of no worries, no cares, no rush, no regrets, no responsibilities...

    I bought some weed today.

    I don't really care for it anymore. I was just feeding into the routine with buying it, smoking and chilling with the bros. It wasn't very fulfilling to be honest. So I'm done. I'm going to take this one day at a time and rid myself of this plant, this addiction, for awhile. I'm...
