I smoke every day, but for the last year or so, just at night while watching TV with the wife.But seriously? You've got healthy lungs after 40 years? How often do you smoke?
However, for most of my life, I smoked whenever I wasn't working - a few times a day when I had the day off, and every evening when I home and not on call. That worked out to about 1.5-4 joints a day.
It's ironic that I have cut back now that I live where pot is decriminalized and so readily available. It has never been safer to smoke or easier to get than now.
But I am much more relaxed now in my new life, and simply don't have the same incentive to smoke that I used to. Now it's just something to make TV more interesting. I don't really like TV, but I like sitting on the couch with my wife for an hour or two every night, and she likes bedtime pot.
I suspect that his life is tumultuous, and that he is self-medicating. I smoked more when pressure escalated, and really missed not having any when dry times met hard times.I only have my brother to go off of. That's my "study". He gets very irritable when he's out of weed. He's very, very dependent on it. He wakes up in the morning and grabs his pipe, not his coffee cup. Smokes weed all day long.
But that is different from drug dependence, which is physiological. I have never known anyone to suffer withdrawal symptoms from pot discontinuation, although I have really only known about 25 smokers well enough to know whether they did.
No problem.I'm sorry, I couldn't link the source. My work computer is just a "terminal" and doesn't have a browser or anything. That's why I put it in quotes, I figured you go to the googlers and see for yourself.
