I’ve never become violent on cannabis and it usually calms me down instead of riling me up.
The first time I tried alcohol was when I was 18. One of my older siblings wanted to let me try a beer at their 21st birthday party. It wasn’t enough beer to get me drunk, but I definitely caught a buzz. I wasn’t a huge fan of alcohol the next few times I tried it. My friends in college always wanted to drink. At first they would drink only on the weekends, but soon they were drinking throughout the week too as well. They would drink whenever they got back to their dorm rooms from class. At the time I wasn’t sure how I felt about alcohol to be honest with myself. I had a lot of family members who are alcoholics and it damaged both their lives in the lives of their spouses and their children as well. Alcohol is a really complicated issue that demands a comprehensive outlook. I simply decided to use cannabis instead when I was at that age. I’ve been using cannabis ever since and I’m happy that it doesn’t affect me the same way it affects others. I’ve never become violent on cannabis and it usually calms me down instead of riling me up. If I’m going to be spending some time with a few of my friends, I would much rather use cannabis with them rather than beer. It’s a much more enjoyable experience for me and I feel like it leads to better conversations if it’s the right strain of weed. Sativa strains of cannabis are typically a lot more social feeling than some of the Indica strains, that’s not always the case. Sometimes a sativa strain can cause so much social anxiety that it’s hard to even talk to another person.
