I’ve been a daily/heavy user of marijuana for the last 10 years. I also binge on alcohol.
I’m 40 and have a wife and 2 kids. I only use marijuana at home and never in front of my wife or kids. I mostly use late at night after work while everyone is asleep. I never drink at home.
I don’t go out drinking a lot but when I do it’s always to the point of blacking out and when I get back home it’s right back to the pot. I also work in the hospitality industry and have alcohol readily available at work and lately I’ve been indulging there as well.
I have had no run ins with the law over the years as I think that I’m being “careful” about my using. Since I work in a “party” type atmosphere, the drinking at work goes unnoticed.
I’m 2 days sober and want to be done with marijuana for good and also either curb my drinking or eliminate that as well.
I always thought weed wasn’t addictive, you just quit when you want. I hope to be a better father and husband and I know I can’t when I’m using.
