If I am being honest, I traded one harmful vice for another one.
In the long run, I think that smoking pot is a far less harmful vice than drinking alcohol, there are no addictive qualities, which is a big benefit. Alcohol is addictive, this has been proven by science, however cannabis is not addictive, and this has also been proven by science. In addition, there are also a lot of medicinal qualities. That’s what people say, anyway, I personally don’t know anything about science I just like getting blitzed! When I was drinking heavily I started to put on weight, however now that I switched over to using cannabis I am getting back into my old condition. They say that marijuana makes you lazy, however I have no problem smoking a bowl and then going to the gym for a quick workout. If anything, cannabis helps me focus, even if I do cough a bit more than I should. I like to stick with using sativa strains of cannabis, and stay away from indica. Sativa makes me clear-headed and focused, and lets me dive into the day with enthusiasm. Indica is fine every once in a while, however it makes me feel too sluggish, which is something else I don’t miss about drinking! My energy is up, my focus is enhanced, and my weight is going down, so I would say that cannabis is a big step up from drinking. Would my health improve even more if I quit drinking booze and quite smoking cannabis? I don’t know if I will ever find out.
