March 6th, 2005. Wow – time flies when you aren’t stoned out of your friggin’ mind. It was two years ago today that I quit smoking pot for good. I remember that on the evening of March 5th, 2003 I smoked my last bit of weed and tossed out all my pipes, papers, pipe cleaners, screens and bongs. Actually I broke/ripped everything up so that I wouldn’t be tempted to dig the stuff out of the trash (you think I’m kidding, but I’m not – once the jones set in I could easily see myself doing something like that back then). I remember waking up the next day and feeling scared. Yeah, scared. Why? Because over the preceding decade I could count on one hand the number of days that I didn’t smoke weed. I literally had to re-learn how to function and enjoy life while sober. It was hard, but I made it through the day. For the first several weeks nothing seemed fun anymore: movies seemed dull, video games seemed boring, after dinner was a nightmare, surfing the web was a big yawn and I couldn’t focus on anything without feeling that horrible, nagging craving. I was very surprised that once I got through the first few weeks the cravings went away almost completely. I had to re-learn how to enjoy life without drugs, and I was successful. I credit my exercise program, which I’d started 2 months prior, for providing me with the self-confidence and desire to finally give up smoking pot forever.
Big day ahead: I’m going to have a great workout, eat and then work on the JSF merchandise. Maybe catch a movie later if I get enough work done. Have a great Sunday and I’ll see ya tomorrow!
