I smoke weed. No I am not stuck to my couch eating potato chips and playing video games. I am a mom, i have a career, I am for all intents and purposes a functioning member of society, and I smoke weed. I grew up with an alcoholic mother, my father is also an alcoholic but I didn’t grow up with him and my step father is an alcoholic. My sister is now an alcoholic. I am not an alcoholic. I am very proud of this. Yes, I drink but not a lot and very rarely. I have to be at a party or out with friends. I have a very low tolerance and am no longer allowed to drink on school nights (per my boss lol). I also have anxiety and weed helps with this. There’s nothing like sitting down after a long day of work and kids and enjoying a nice toke. It calms me down, helps me unwind and sleep. I only smoke at night after the kids go to bed. Occasionally if my kids are at sleep overs or I am not going to be around them I will smoke during the day.
Smoking weed works for me. And I really think it’s waaaay better than following in my parents footsteps.
