Is Life Boring After Quitting Weed and Alcohol



Is Life Boring After Quitting Weed and Alcohol

I used to think life will be boring if I quit drinking alcohol and smoking weed. I used to believe sober people seldom enjoy life. I wondered whether I will enjoy video games, movies, and documentaries if I got sober. The high I got from smoking and drinking made me believe that sober people are missing out. This negative perception of sobriety was the major reason why I hesitated to quit weed and alcohol.

Now that I am eight weeks sober, I have realized that life is only boring – after quitting drugs – when you choose to make it boring. There are many things – I realized – that sober people can do to avoid getting bored. You can learn a new language, lift weights, learn karate or boxing, take nature walks, meditate, read books, work more, and spend more time with family and friends.

You’ll find life more interesting after quitting weed and alcohol if you find your purpose, chase your dream, or commit to career development. You’ll be so obsessed with overcoming challenges, improving your skills, and visualizing success. The feeling you’ll get from pursuing your dream while sober will surpass the high you get from drinking or smoking.

I am seldom bored, even after quitting weed because my dream of earning millions from my blogs keeps me writing and reading most of my time. I am more obsessed with this dream after becoming sober because my writing skills and ability to remember what I read have improved. I feel like I will reach my dreams soon if I commit to them while sober. This experience has made me realize that life is not boring after quitting weed. I’ve found that it is amazing if you find something good to focus on.

Anyway, you’ll also be more present and creative, and you’ll always make decisions that will improve your life quality after quitting. Your sleep quality will improve, and you’ll always feel fresh throughout the day. You’ll save more money and buy the things you always wanted but couldn’t buy because you spent all your money on weed and alcohol. Besides, the excitement you’ll experience after realizing that quitting enables you to save more, makes you look younger and boosts your productivity will make life more fulfilling. You’ll never want to smoke or drink again. You’ll start avoiding friends who drink or smoke because you’ll know they’ll hold you back.

I am now eight weeks sober. Weed and alcohol were my best friends for years, but now I have realized that they prevented me from living a better life. I have noticed that they made my life more boring. They resulted in a life without progress and worsened my depressive symptoms. I am now healed from anxiety and depression because I face my problems head-on. I don’t escape them anymore. Life is now better.

Quit weed and alcohol and stop thinking that life will be boring without these intoxicants.
