Pot Habit

I fear I'm becoming addicted to pot. I can't get enough of it, and not the cheap, weak stuff, but the proper heavy gear. It's already having a financial effect, 35 quid last night alone - a school night no less, it would have been more had it been a weekend. I know it's slowing me down, chilling me out and believed to be benign by many but the results are certainly going to have a profound effect for the rest of my life.

And it's surely the thin end of the wedge. I'm regularly doing over a dozen lines of cane a night already. Weed doesn't last 5 minutes and don't even get me started on the grass. 2 hours have just flown by on some canna biz.

I can't have a conversation without mentioning it somewhere. I'm constantly checking out what others have got and coveting their stash. I am distracted, my concentration is poor and all I want to do is get home, slip into something comfortable and lose myself in blissful oblivion.





I never thought I'd say this but, " My name is Cherry and I am a Gardener!"

Go you!

I love to work the soil in what little garden I've got here. There's something soothing about it and I also can't stop envying other people's yards and flowers.

Since the picture won't load I was expecting the punch line to have something to do with cooking: i.e. 'pots' and pans. Gardening works, too.

No, it is isn't something I thought I would ever say either LOL Gardening is strangely addictive though. You start with a container or two, and before you know it, you have a full blown habit going on.

BTW the internet makes the coveting worse - you encounter all these people in exotic climes who can grow things we can only dream of.

LMAO, that was such a treat, I have to confess to the gardening bug myself, but your version sounds so much more fun.

It still might not be too late. Just put the plant down and step away slowly.

Just say no!

I'm all for the pot too, but I tend to look for the ones that are covered in moss, have wee cracks, and that have been sent off to the terra cotta recycling gods...it makes the habit easier to bear financially...less lying about where all the bob has gone to the missus.

You start on pot, a bit of trellis and before you now it, you need a gazebo hit. You're on a slippery slope!
