As for alcohol.. especially the past couple of days - In the past I was one for 'The Hair of the dog' usually the morning after around 11 is when I'd self medicate with a ceasar (not the dog whisperer;-) that is what it is when you have a hang over and drink- SELF MEDICATING.
I can tell you truthfully.. I know many, many Cannabis users that forget to medicate- unlike pills that you take every 4 hours - with Cannabis another true blessing is you use it and it helps your pain within minutes. I've yet to meet someone who has the shakes from not having a joint! It is more a disappointment than anything else. On the other hand I have had my share of too many people (including myself) who were hung over and MISERABLE to those around them - until they drink again. Or smokers that just get nasty because they need a smoke. Do you smoke ? Can you start your day before you have a smoke?? I know someone who just admitted to me they don't even get out of bed until the 3rd cig, or go to sleep - SMOKIN IN BED- ;-(( - until they have had another 2. So you think there is a problem with Cannabis being additive? Think again.
