No offense to the tapering folks here but I had to go cold turkey...if I had weed I'd smoke it til it was all gone.

I had to rip the band aid off.

thanks for checking in Dee!
Still Barely smoking!! I cant even remember the last time I did just cause I am not counting days at all. Between 10-14 days ago maybe. For some weird reason I am managing it so well right now. Really that is my goal anyway to be able to use it occasionally and I never thought I could do it. but for a variety of reasons I am only smoking it like once in a while. I think one of the reasons is cause all I can get now is the dispensary stuff- and I just dont enjoy it as much as the mellower outdoor stuff which I used to use. When I use this stuff it often makes me fall asleep so I just do it occasionally at the end of a day- it is different. perhaps if I come across some milder more organic outdoor stuff ever again I will use it more. but I literally have a bag in my closet and barely ever smoke it. And when I do it is so overpowering- I do one or maybe two hits- and it only is for when I want to check out. I dont have that much space in my life to fully check out so it just keeps me in check. It is nice to have this balance right now- not sure how it will unfold. I am sober 99% of the time. I dont drink alcohol either so I am basically just sober with the occasional MJ use right now.

Not sure what you want me to say Windytown so I'll just say I hope it continues to work out for you

Have to admit to being glad tho that my last smoke was so long ago I'm not tempted to try again even when I read posts like yours,

There was no moderation for me.
My life is definitely better completely smoke free.

Dee- yes I know- I am not advocating moderation. As a 30 year addict I never thought I would have any time like this where it was occasional for me. I know you have read my posts over the years and it was a struggle. For whatever reason right now it is not a struggle. I have other struggles but some how MJ has moved to the back burner of my life. I did 6 months totally sober and now I am managing the occasional use. I am not advocating it for everyone.

I didn't think you were windytown - you're just being honest.

I can't see long term success for you, but I don't know everything

Dear Windy, thanks for the updates. I'm glad you have found something that's working for you, at least for now. I do have some worries for the long term, but maybe you are having them too and who am I to judge? Have a nice weekend!

We only have the Here and Now to be concerned about - the rest is just a self-created story of success or failure self-imposed upon ourselves. Let's free ourselves and live Here without the need of creating "possible" outcomes. Who honestly knows about the imaginary future ? Is it even real or just projecting of a past ? Clean and sober Today is all that is needed. And when tomorrow comes, it will be Today and a renewal of just one day of sobriety. Jmho
