Going for a walk


I'm taking a chance on going for a walk. My neighbor is home from work. We smoke weed together so I posting in case she asks me to smoke. It is taking some hard work today to get 24 hours.

You can do this!

It's good to be aware of potential problems and to try to work around them.

Enjoy your walk!

My walk was nice. No site of my neighbor. Thank goodness. It really helped to post about it here and get support.

I can relate. I got into the same funk. I surrounded myself with nothing but users.
My neighbors party a lot & I just give a friendly wave & smile. Good job on deciding to go for a walk. How long can you avoid your party-buddy? Does she understand your current position?
I was shocked at some of my friends who totally respect my decision. Some others don't. I think it was the constant company of partying & now I'm bowing out. It might make them reflect. Scary.
Again great choice. Being a *newbie*, it was neat to see you reach out to this forum & reaffirm my decision that this is a neat place.
