My therapist has been helping me with my anger issues, and to get control of my drinking.
Therapy alone was not enough, however, so the doctor encouraged me to visit the local holistic health center and talk to an expert about using yoga and guided meditation to help relax me.
I was intrigued by the idea of replacing one bad habit with another, less toxic, bad habit, at least as a first step in my recovery. Medical cannabis is still illegal in this state, but I am going to give it a try anyway, because I need to do something fast! In time I plan to explore every facet of holistic health at the cannabis store as a means for positive self-improvement, but for the moment I am going to focus on cannabis. When I am desperate for a drink of alcohol I will simply visit the weed dispensary and smoke some marijuana until the feeling passes. If I smoke too much cannabis I tend to get tired and fall asleep, which is a far sight better than getting drunk. When I get drunk I get angry, so I need to avoid the bar altogether and just stick with the cannabis dispensary instead. This is simply my first step towards holistic health. CBD products are another important aspect of holistic health, because they provide me with the physical relaxation I crave. Cannabis mellows my mind and calms me down, but CBD products relax my muscles and ease the tension in my lower back. I am so glad I switched over to using recreational pot.
