I've quit drugs, alcohol, and.... meat.
    #3838399 - 02/26/05 08:12 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

After floating around in a fog for god knows how long, I decided a few weeks ago to make an action of self-discipline, removing these substances from my daily intake.
This is a personal decision based on the desire for much-needed clarity. I intuit that I will need to see crystally-clear in the upcoming months. I have already started to feel positive effects...
I am able to wake up in the morning with ease, something that I have had problems with in the past. Also, I can get to sleep easier, and it's more refreshing, too! When I constantly smoked weed I would get pseudo-insomnia and have restless sleep. Now I can recall multiple dreams a night, something I have not been able to do in a long time.
(Now I am far from perfect, and have broken my resolutions a few times, smoking a bowl here and there... but mostly I have upheld the clean vibe.)

To anyone out there who feels confusion, and lacks full clarity or understanding of what going on, I highly recommend taking a break from these things.
Then again, everyone's different... but this has definately been working for me.  :heart:

:crazy:

Good for you. Stay strong and keep with it. Sounds like you know what you want and is going for it. I wish I was that strong willed.

Good luck with all of that!

OMG.....no meat!!

i gave up ground meat and eventually all beef a while ago, and smoking weed daly.

i really didnt notice that much of a change, but the dreams! my god the dreams are fantastic when you stop smoking weed. then the vividness starts to fade but the dreams stay. its nice to have some clarity now and again! like coming out of the fog , Brigadoon anyone?

Good luck Adamist, stay strong :thumbup:

I just have one question.  I can see quieting the drugs and alcohol, but why meat?  Are you going to be a vegetarian?

Yeah I'm trying it out. Ever since my first shroom trips I started to look outside the meat-box, but I was never strong enough on my own to stop. But after meeting Ares, who has been a vegetarian for like 7 years, I have been inspired to see how it goes. I mean, if she can do it, then I would hope that I can too. :shrug:

I gave up drugs awhile ago. I don't think I can give up meat, nicotine and alcohol have to be next for me.

No I mean are you just trying to challenge yourself, or are you truly against eating meat.  It's tasty and healthy (in combination with fruits and veggies) for you :shrug: don't like those slaughter houses though.

Good luck man, I've done this before and there really is nothing like that kind of feeling. You should also try to give up refined sugar (if you haven't already) that will make you feel even more wonderful. Just don't forget to take vitamins/herbal supplement and make sure there is enough protein in you diet or you body will really start to dislike you.

Yeah, without meat you may be lacking in the protein department. I like Tofu, tasty and high protein. Watch out for iodine deficiency too, some vegetarian get that - I think many table salt brands/companies add whatever is needed (I would guess iodine) to make sure this doesn't happen, so you probably don't have any to worry about there.

It's a little bit of both... I've long been against the concept of slaughter-houses and processed meat, but I wouldn't of quit unless I was trying to challenge myself. I was born and raised to be carnivorous, so basically I'm just trying to de-program myself.

Don't get me wrong, I see the benefits in all these things... but there are also drawbacks. Sooo, by removing them I shall get a clear picture of the situation.

The first week was the hardest. I kept having intense mood swings each day, like one minute I'd be so happy I could cry, then the next I would be so depressed that I didn't see any point in living... I assume it had something to do with the removal of these things that I was so accustomed to. I feel much more balanced now, though.

Let's say that there was no meat industry, and I was born into a 'vegetarian world'. I honestly don't think I would feel naturally compelled to kill animals and eat their flesh. But hey, that's me.

A vegetarian world? Dont bring rediculous hypothetical situations into this heated argument about the epic battle between the evil vegitarians and the good, peace loving omnivores of our beautiful planet. Maybe we should just all paint our asses red and hang a hammer and sickle over our mantles shouting HAIL STALIN. You'd like that, wouldnt you.
