I have mentioned in previous blog posts that I have wanted to get sober from smoking pot and how it was a big struggle for me. I am proud to say I am almost three weeks sober! This is the longest time I have gone without in over five years and so it is no easy feat and yet it is. I have been constantly surrounded by substances these past weeks and have consistently rejected them. Three weeks ago I simply said enough is enough! and I have stayed true to this realization since.
So what do I notice has changed since quitting pot?
I have noticed I have tons of energy and am able to get through the day without napping which I was not managing beforehand. Before quitting weed, I was always tired and constantly oversleeping which was starting to alarm me. I also notice a more positive attitude and increase in productivity. I no longer want to sit around wasting my time getting high when I could be doing things! like going for long bike rides or painting a beautiful piece of art.
My next challenge when I feel ready is to quit smoking cigarettes as I am a terrible chainsmoker. But I am convinced it is too soon to quit something that may be a crutch during this time of sobriety. It is definitely something I will however be working on in the near future.
I just want to be my best and healthiest self and I think I am finally on the road to getting there. For all of you out there struggling to quit just believe there is hope. Your willpower may be just around the corner. It’s just waiting for you to find it.
