My girlfriend wanted me to get a better job and stop smoking recreational marijuana.
I tried to tell her that recreational marijuana was good for my anxiety.
She wanted me to try something else. I quit smoking recreational marijuana and I stayed clean for 30 days so I could pass a test at the place of employment. I got a job and it was a better job than the grocery store. I was earning good money each paycheck and my girlfriend and I were both happy. She was pleased that I found a better job and I was earning more money. I had lots of cash in my pocket for nice clothes, cars, and electronics. After three months on the job, I started to feel the effects from not using recreational marijuana daily. My anxiety was through the roof. I was having a difficult time getting along with my co-workers. Every time there was an issue, I felt frustrated and overreacted. The boss suspended me for two days after I got into an argument with one of my co-workers. I was really losing my cool and I knew that something needed to change. When the boss suspended me, I went home and smoked recreational marijuana. I felt the anxiety and stress start to melt away. I felt better for the next two weeks. After that, I decided to start using recreational marijuana every couple of days. If the boss tests me for marijuana, I probably won’t be able to pass. At least my mental health is stable and reliable and that means I can keep the job.
