I absolutely don’t prefer to drink. A lot of my friends still go out on the weekends as well as drink until 3:00 in the afternoon. They come to labor Monday afternoon as well as they look like they’re still drunk from Wednesday. I spent a lot of time drinking when I was in university as well as one time I had alcohol poisoning. I passed out as well as I had to be taken to the hospital. They pumped my stomach as well as I found out that I had severe harm from drinking alcohol for 3 years straight. The doctor told me that I was going to end up with liver disease if I did not stop drinking. I was only 24 years outdated at that time as well as I decided to stop drinking alcohol for good. I still wanted to have something fun to do when pretty much everyone else was drinking, so I started smoking recreational marijuana; Recreational marijuana has been legal in the state for the past 8 years. I used a little bit of recreational marijuana in university, but now I like to smoke every single afternoon. Marijuana makes me feel much more calm as well as relaxed. I don’t have any type of negative drug reactions with the other pills that I take. I guess that marijuana also helps me be more social, which is a complication that I have had since I was young. As long as I can continue to get high, I don’t mind if pretty much everyone else around me is drinking until the cows come home. I would much rather be stoned than plastered.
