    Default Marijuana

    Hi!

    Does anyone else find that marijuana helps them process their emotions?

    When I'm in the middle of an emotional fit, marijuana brings me out of it immediately. I start breaking down the situation and find the root of my immensely painful feelings.

    I have tried quitting several times. I'm not sure if I've built up a reliance & my brain doesn't try to process without it OR if it's actually helpful.

    My emotions were shit on during childhood (grow thicker skin), so I've been using marijuana this way for about 13 years. I fear that I've messed up my cognitive functions.

    I want to be able to process without external things

    Thoughts?

    How does it feel to be a double Aries with a Cancer rising? Angelina Jolie is a Aries moon, Cancer rising...but she has a Gemini sun, which probably helps her balance things a bit. Do you have any air in your chart?

    Different strokes; different folks. Do you want to quit or pull back? If so, I think you should listen to that. Weed can be used or abused too.

    I do recognize smoking and emotions aligning. Things that were hazy emotionally are very clear. I've made decisions while high I do not regret. Things became so self-evident. So I understand your thinking of emotional clarity. However, if you specifically need weed to make these decisions, it's not good because it usually means if you're sober you're repressing a whole lot of stuff.

    Pull back. Think about the things you came to conclusions about on weed and reflect sober. Be honest. Go through it sober, too. I do think weed pulls out some stuff but you can't rely on it. You gotta do the work sober too. It will give you some steps to moderation.

    Great advice - thank you!
    How can a set of identifiers define the complexity and ever-changing state of human existence?

    Occupation? Age? Name?

    We are none of these things. Our actions aren't even who we are. Once our actions change, so does our personality.

    Our personality is the vehicle our actual self travels in.

    We are in the driver's seat.

    Get high on music and vibes. Light yoga and long savasana if you're into that. Whatever makes you feel similarly zoned.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Thanks! I practice yoga. However, I still have trouble utilizing it when I feel overwhelmed. I'm working on that thank you for your great recommendations
