I've actually been thinking about quitting myself

I still love weed but smoke more than I should myself. Went through a period awhile back where I was taking THC capsules during the week and only smoking on weekends but I stopped the capsules because the kind I liked were only sold in 60mg pills and that's way too strong to take every day. Made me super spacey and interfered with my sex life (on the plus side, I never slept better in my life). So since then I've been smoking every day (few mini bowls- nothing like the old days, partly because this legal stuff is way stronger than anything I smoked back then) and I'm too old for that shit. Makes it hard to stay in shape and ####s with my energy level. Luckily, the dispensaries have a lot of options- just need to find something better. Will probably do another type of capsule because the main other options tend to be oils that aren't strong enough to get you high (just take the edge off), edibles that are all basically junkfood and vaping which is lame and unpleasant. I do feel like I need some form of it to medicate though, unless I want to do anti-depressants (which I *really* don't want to do). I just have to check myself.
That's cool that you quit smoking if you feel it was becoming a problem and even cooler that you quit drinking (yeah getting drunk alone on a regular basis ain't a good sign- speaking from experience). I first quit doing both (as well as other drugs, cigarettes and coffee) about 8 years ago so I would have been 27. Forget how old you are exactly but you're probably around that age and it's a good age to give that shit a rest (though I'm you weren't anywhere near where you wound up but like you said, it's always possible that it could have happened eventually). But yeah, it's obviously easier to lose weight/get in shape when you're sober and if you're still doing a bunch of recording, it'll probably make that process easier as well.
