Booze bag...
    #753971 - 10/19/14 02:42 PM (2 years, 1 month ago)

So yea, I'm an alcoholic and had to quit in Jan.
(HCV and other health problems, increasing blackouts, doing really stupid shit, family and money problems, etc.)
40+ years of :faded: will do that.

I tried quitting numerous times the last few years with little success.
My drinking actually got much worse. Finally checked into a detox/rehab for a month.

  Anyway, I did my first 4 months or so completely sober; no weed, caffeine, tobacco, no meds except my monthly Vivitrol shot to help w/ cravings.

  Then I picked up coffee and tobacco smoking again(been doing the AA thing about 5 times a week. They smoke ALOT), plus some weed now and then. Finally decided to quit the tobacco, limit the caffeine, and get my green thumb back. Expect to see me 'round these parts more, not just when I win the ban lottery. I need to study up.

I'm also going to get involved locally to help change NJ's fucked up MMJ laws.http://www.cmmnj.org/ Proposed laws would cover my condition which they don't now.

Anyone fighting that alcohol demon,( or other ones), know that it can be beat. I'm doing it one day at a time.

Anyone else struggling out there?

:strokebeard: . . . :peace:

Everyone has their own demons.

Best of luck to you on your sobriety.

Looking forward to seeing you around more! :hi:

I hear ya homie...I keep cutting back my drinking, but I keep fucking up too. I really need to quit outright, but it's tough.

I just stick to beer now, and try to not smoke when I'm drinking (I always black out). I drink once a week, but still probably way too much in one day.

I was waiting to quit for good until my best friend left for the military (24 year friendship, 10 year drinking buddy) but he hasn't left. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him to go - ever - but I was waiting for him since he's my main reason for buying beers.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Hey vinsue, I didn't know you had an account over here. If I had to guess, out of everyone on the boomery, who is an alcoholic, you'd be my last guess.

It's great that you're working on kicking it. Good luck man and best of luck :leaf:

41 weeks dry.
A few hits here and there sure makes it easier.
I'm going to check out kratom soon enough, though,(before it gets scheduled).
See what all the hub-bub is all about...:kratom: . . . :peace:

I tend to have a hard time moderating my drinking when there is no bud around.

If bud were legal in my state I would probably stop drinking altogether...I prefer smoking to drinking :shrug:

My first year after graduation (when I was growing) I actually made the switch completely...those were the days...

Now I have a job that actually does random drug testing, so I tend to drink a lot more than I should.

I swear one of these days I'm gonna get fed up with it and just blow all of my savings to move out to Colorado. :happyweed:

My state(NJ) has MMJ, but it has to be less than 10% THC, costs $500 or more/oz., no edibles, no growing, and a piss poor supply. Not to mention the most restrictive medical conditions needed to qualify.
http://www.nj.gov/health/medicalmarijuana/pat_faqs.shtml#7 (see Patient FAQ’s #7)

Then there's this (from http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/06/christie_says_medical_marijuana_programs_are_a_front_for_legalization.html
Quote:

... the president and chief executive of Compassionate Care Foundation, Inc. of Egg Harbor Township — one of the state's three medical marijuana dispensaries — announced he had quit because he couldn't keep working for no pay in a struggling industry.

Christie said it's clear there is not a demand for medical pot.

"What there's a huge demand for is marijuana. Not medical marijuana," he said... "Because when we run a medically based program, you don't see the demand."

Some lawmakers, dispensary operators, and patients blame the low enrollment on the program's strict rules, high costs, the small amount of doctors willing to recommend patients, and Christie's lack of involvement in enhancing participation.

"There is so much reticence on the administration's part, I don't know how you break that logjam," state Assemblyman Reed Gusciora...
...Gov. Christie has said that while he will administer the medical marijuana program by law, he will never support the legalization of recreational pot use in New Jersey while he is governor...



Only 2,342 approved patients (as of June 2014), limited number of approved Doctors, and they are NOT taking new patients. I've tried.:crankey:

This coming from the guy who wants to be the next President. :stonedjerk:

/end rant . . . :peace:

Oh.

On top of what I mentioned in the :pm:

Water. Lots of water. I try and drink at least 1.5L of water a day. Some days its easier and some I have to force myself, but your body will appreciate it and thank you for it. Trust me.

Yea, I'm on doctors orders to drink shit tons of water.
That, and I have to force my self to eat 3 meals(minimum)/day.
Not much appetite lately, except for the munchies sometimes, and I'm nauseous, lethargic, daily headaches...
Got a Colonoscopy on Wednesday to see what's going on inside. I can't wait...:goatse: . . . :peace:

Fun. I can't wait for my 40s!

Is the non drinking related to headaches? I've been grinding my teeth a lot more, but I'd fig it was due to stress...

There comes a point in time where you need to freeze your account, grab a tent, and go hiking in the woods on your own to find yourself.

I know I came out a different man

Headaches might be from the Protonix I take for my stomach or my Hep C.
Maybe stress related, too. They're not too bad, but pretty much every day.
Weed helps a lot. Guess it's time to track down this kid in the hood with the green...:dealer: . . . :peace:
