Sobriety Is Hell
    #1512973 - 05/01/03 10:47 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Ok, I've been smoking weed for about 2 years (jan/feb of 2001), and with my upcoming 16th birthday, I anticipated getting a job with a piss test. So before new years 2003, I said I would quit tokin up on Jan 1st and remain sober until after I get a job. Well, sobriety is hard, so I continued to remain stoned due to my friends' "they wont test you" and "aww cmon, just get high". Finally on March 2nd, I said I was done (a month and a few days before my b-day) FOR GOOD. Fortunately, at this time, I've been sober for almost 9 weeks, but unfortunately I've had some hard times.

About 4 weeks ago, I got a really bad what-seemed-to-be cold. So about 3 weeks ago, my dad took me to the doc, but he couldnt do anything. First he thought I had an ear infection, handed out some pills, but nothing got better. So then he gave me allergy medicine about 2 weeks ago. Nothing. I've come to the conclusion, after reading some posts on the subject, that weed has weakened my immune system...but if so, why did I never get sick while it was in my system?

So after getting bad urges to get a buzz, I got really piss-drunk a few times in the past weeks, but Alcohol is NOT a good substitute for weed. I get bad stomach cramps and feel really fuzzy for a few days afterward (always felt 100% next morning after getting stoned).

So, almost 3 weeks after dropping off applications, I'm starting to dread my decision to go sober and miss 420 and all that. I would settle for shrooms, but in late winter/early spring in IL, shrooms are kinda non existant. I'm pretty much to the point of saying "fuck it" and going back, but I need a job (im sorry, i cant settle for a shit job like McD's or BK) cuz I'm gonna have to pay car insurance in about a month.

I really need your guys' input on if I should give up and go back, or not, or just ideas on my whole sobriety.

Thanks for reading this...I appreciated any attention given to this subject.

Dude just get the job first, find out if they want a piss test, if not sweet for you, but just wait till you get that job. Think of how mad you'll be if you lose out on an awesome job cuz of one puff......

Sobriety is a bitch man. I'm working on it half-assed right now, trying to stay off the white. Just set those little goals for yourself...Maybe until you get a job is too much. Maybe next time you finish an interview? Every little bit helps....

stay sober till you get a job. you obviously dont want to quit pot for other reasons so waiting till the job comes is hard...but you will feel really good about yourself once you have a job...then sit down and roast a big bowl....it will be a lot better than giving into temptation, stay strong and you'll be alright....you are already half way there !! =)

Sobriety isn't hell. Relax :smile:

Sobriety is tripped-out in many of its own ways

I think you need a good slap in the head.
You have the rest of your life to get fucked up, and drinkin, smokin and eatin schrooms isnt gonna help you achieve goals in your life that you dont even know you have.
Hows this for a reality check.
I used to smoke dope, and drink booze when i was 16, and i thought i was the shit...so did all my friends.
Wanna know how many of my so-called friends are either dead, in jail, or home right now wondering why there so fucked up, without a job, a life, etc...
Almost all of them.
I was lucky, because i saw the light, and got away for 5 years...got my shit together, grew up, and made a life for myself.
So now, if i smoke, drink or eat schrroms, i have no issues because I busted my fuckin ass clawing my way back up and i live a pretty good life.

If only i had woken up when i was 16 instead of 19, some of the terrible things that happened to me and some of my so-called friends may have never happened.

Get your priorities straight, and get your life on the right track...then you can have as much fun as you want.

Sorry if this sounds harsh, but at your age, you dont know your ass from your elbow, and neither did I.
Life isnt that hard..
Good luck.

Is it sobriety that's hell, or is it your psychological addiction to marijuana?

You have a choice to make. I wish I could give you a starting push in the right direction, but I can't. You're the one in control.

Good luck, and think of the consequences of your acts.

"Ok, I've been smoking weed for about 2 years (jan/feb of 2001), and with my upcoming 16th birthday..."

yes, and if you're 15 and you're going to post here, you should at least be discreet enough to not post your age.

i'm 20. if i go to a bar and i get in and get served, i know better than to tell the bartender how old i am while asking for a drink.

Thanks for your input, guys. I just got a call today from one of the places I applied at...got an interview Sunday. Wish me luck. I am getting hella baked after i get my drug test (if I get one). I already got 60 bucks saved.

And about the age bullshit, whats the problem? For the story background, I needed to put my age in here. So fuckin what. Do you honestly think that a mod or someone else will do something? I came here for help, not to buy smokes or anything...so age shouldnt be a factor.

Oh well, thanks again for your input. I'll be back in the garden of weeden soon...hopefully.

You need to take heed to what cerebral gortex said. You're only 15. For real, man if you're this dependant on just weed, I would hate to see how you will be once you start harder drugs (and you will, if you dont slow down now). Trust me, man. Do you know how many people I know are living shitty, pathetic lives because they let drug addictions take hold of them? Every single person my age in my old town is a meth addict, they're all living shitty lives, working shitty minimum waige jobs, no college education at all. Shit, most of them don't even have a HS degree. They have no future, they have no past, they really don't even have a present. Before they know it, they'll be middle aged crackheads with nowhere to go. Man I don't wish that upon anyone, especially young people like yourself. It really does break my heart. Don't ever think it won't happen to you, because it will, and you won't even realize it until it's too late.

Don't get me wrong though-getting stoned, popping pills, tripping, all that shit IS fun! but not when it consumes you. Imagine if Christmas was everyday... it wouldn't be so special then, would it? MODERATION. Get your priorities straight. Set goals and once you acheive them, then award yourself with a bowl or a joint.

Anyway, I hope I didn't sound like a bitch, I just care for people. I don't want to sound like a dare cop either, I'm just someone who has found this shit out the hard way. I don't want to sound like your mom either, but keep in mind I cared about you enough to take time to write this for you, and I don't even know ya.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors! :grin:
