I am not trying to start a debate over here. And I would really appreciate it if people could remain respectful and non-judgemental.
I am just really curious how other people handle it in their lifestyles and so on.
I will go first:
I started doing it as a teen when I was depressed. It escalated quickly – and for those of you wondering – no, it did not lead to me becoming an ”addict” or it was not a ”gateway” drug for me.
I struggled with depression most of my teens and early adult life. I like to journal and write poetry and back then, I felt like it expanded my creativity and I thought it was super psychedelic (yes, I was one of those hippy gals).
Now I just do it as a force of habbit – I like to put my feet up after a hard day’s work and enjoy it (just like some people like to have a drink at the end of the day). I don’t really drink very often.
DH does it with me and we have always enjoyed it together, for the most part.
We took a few breaks here and there, but still do it. We do not have any kids yet, so I don’t see a problem with it. We work hard, pay our bills and take care of ourselves – for the most part lol, the munchies have taken a toll a bit and the house chores too, lol.
Does anyone else enjoy this type of lifestyle?
Does it affect the rest of your life (motivation, house work, bills, health habits, etc.)
Do you feel addicted or dependent on it?
I won’t lie that I feel dependent on it myself, I don’t like not having some at my disposition and I hate to admit it.
