Sounds like a good system
Seems obvious but I never thought of timing my bowls when trying to cut down. Will definitely try it if I ever find myself in that position again. Still using the THC tabs- been over 2 months since I smoked I think. And I sometimes actually like the delayed reaction- means I can take them and take care of important stuff like you say while waiting for them to kick in.
Any particular reason you hotbox your closet? Used to be my go-to move while in high school but I that was just so my parents wouldn't smell it (it didn't work, obviously) and I haven't done it since.
