I smoked heavily for about five years straight. Ounce a week steadily. Around June last year I got into guns. I got paranoid about my smoking. I enjoyed guns so much that I was afraid of getting caught with bud and losing my right to carry, or even worse, risking felony possession and losing my right to bear arms in general. I choose guns over bud, all day. But there's no denying the raw benefits of marijuana. I have IBS, lack of an appetite at times from all the stomach troubles, I hate the side effects of any prescription medicine I've been prescribed for it, or just about anything else. I also have a recurring problem with kidney stones, with accompanying nausea. Nothing helped either of these things more than marijuana. I quit smoking about7 months ago on July 4th. Since then I've looked for a bunch of different "outlets" if you will. I still hate the prescription meds, and I can't find much to help me sleep. I've tried NyQuil, zzzquil, Benadryl, and most often, liquor. Liquor helps me sleep, undoubtedly. But I hate it. A good drink every now and then is fine, but I'm falling into the habit of drinking nightly to go to sleep. I'll admit that depending on anything is never good, but at least with marijuana it wasn't harmful to my health. Alcohol has painfully visible side effects. Very undesirable. It does wonders to help me sleep, but does nothing for my stomach issues.I guess what I'm asking is, if you were in my shoes, what would you do?My old dealer was a friend I grew up with. He's a responsible guy. Doesn't take risks as he has a family. Delivers to my door. My current job doesn't drug test, I make decent money for my age.So what would you do? Start back and just smoke less? Smoke a small amount as needed? Maybe keep a quarter ounce on hand or sr not risk it for the "what if".If you need more info just let me know. I'm just looking for personal opinion. Thanks!
