I agree 100%...this is an excellent idea for people that are not strictly weed smokers. Yrs ago, I had a major problem with drinking...basically on a 25 yr binge. I would gag every morning & pass-out every night...EVERY night. Was really affecting my whole life extremely negatively. Woke up 1 morning & didn't get myself a beer...1st time in ???? [total blur].
Anyway, I was just feeling too shitty 24/7 now. Hangovers were an all-day occurrence. Drink a 6, still felt like garbage...& that's when I just thought "Forget this nonsense" & poured the rest of the can down the sink. Asked my wife if she'd dump the 8 cans in the fridge. **I'd literally count my beers every morning to see if I needed to make a run before starting getting hammered.**
After about a week, my stomach was unqueasing itself & I felt 80% back to normal. Finally about a month & I was back 100% feeling 'unqueased' every morning. Each morning I was so glad not to feel shitty, I didn't want to drink that day. This just rolled on & on & it's been 7 & a 1/2 yrs since I've had a drink.
Weed really is beneficial to alcoholics because we still like some kinda buzz & weed is so easy on your system, I have never had a 'weed hangover', as some claimed to have.
And to allow people 21+ to purchase alcohol, but nobody nowhere can purchase weed legally [with few exceptions], makes no sense to this ex-lush.
Anyhow, yeah Marc, this was a great idea to have this new forum for peeps like me who've had their share of addictions or dependencies...The End.
