Smoking pot & playing video games was such a focus of our life for so many years, I can hardly suppose I survived it.
I worked that whole time, by the way, because how else can a person spend our savings bills? But I never did anything outside the home that expanded our mind or changed our life.
Partially COVID is to blame, because even though the quarantine is over the pandemic changed the way civilization operates. I was content to stay on our couch, getting high & playing Xbox for weeks, even weeks on end, until I realized I no longer had a life. My best buddy had become OG Kush, & before bed I would spend a few hours with Purple Haze before crashing for twelve hours. The main reason I decided to make more of an effort with being social is because the local cannabis dispensary just opened a current smokers lounge. My favorite thing to do is sit around smoking cannabis, & the lounge offered a semi-private venue for doing that with other people. It is the cannabis equivalent of a tavern, where instead of drinking cold beers all night you eat edibles & smoke joints. I was overjoyed to find that the lounge was filled with cool people who enjoyed cannabis as much as I did. Most of them were just as lonely & socially maladjusted as I was, too, so the cannabis dispensary became our familiar hangout spot a few days a week. If the smokers lounge set up some video games systems, then we doubt I would ever leave.
