So, Ive worked at UPS since I was 18, now 28. Since UPS never drug tests Id basically been high, almost everyday, for the last 10 years. Dont get me wrong, there have been days I havent smoked for whatever reason, but for the most part I think Ive been high 80-90% of those 10 years. I never saw it as a problem since I worked at UPS (a decent union job with benefits) and was able to go to school and receive a bachelors from CSU, found and been with my fiance, traveled the world, lived fairly well, etc etc etc. All while being mostly high. But having graduated this past June, I knew I had to take a break in order to get clean so I could pass drug tests for employment. And so, sometime in late July I went to my fav dispensary, picked up an 1/8 and some edibles and lit up for a whole weekend, knowing that Id have to endure sobriety for the foreseeable future til I got a job. Which brings me to now, ITS BEEN GREAT! I had honestly forgotten what it was like to be sober. Dont get me wrong, I still love cannabis, but being sober has been great. The first week or so was no doubt was rough. I couldnt sleep very well, lost my appetite, wasnt very moody but definitely felt bored most of the time. After that initial week though, its been smooth sailing. At first I kind of replaced bud with beer, which I knew is not the way to do it, but it really did help me ease into being weed-free. Id still get the urge here and there, but it wasnt so bad. I felt like my mind was clear, like a fog had lifted, I started hanging out more with my family (Im latino so this means a lot to me) which is something I use to avoid because, well Id rather hit the bong lol. I also felt sharper when talking to people. And now that it looks like Ive landed my dream job working for a major clothing brand as a analyst Im having second thoughts on whether to light up soon again. And if I do light up soon, Im promising myself it'll be for weekends, or special days or something, not everyday multiple times a day like I use to. I realize now that smoking like that kind of kills the fun in it, since tolerance builds up quickly. Im just ranting, but I want people to know that weed in moderation is great. I think these moments of sobriety between lighting up helps make lighting up ACTUALLY enjoyable, rather than just another habit. But thats me. I just wanted to share my experience with the community. Again, I'll probably light up again, but this time I think I'll be doing it in moderation. Keep the flame going comrades!
