Part of me wishes there would be another lockdown.
I don’t wish COVID upon anybody, but that sort of forced solitude was great for my physical and mental health. Before the quarantine I was a mess, always drunk and stoned and passed out on someone’s couch. When I was trapped by myself in my apartment I had no choice but to be a good boy. I started to exercise, and even turned the spare room into a home gym. Exactly three weeks after the lockdown ended, I turned the home gym into a cannabis smokers lounge. I went right back to my old habits, and started consuming mass quantities of cannabis… although to be fair I did not start drinking again. I also kept up my exercise, albeit in a different style, because unlike booze, cannabis doesn’t sap my ability to do the things I want to do. I know that cannabis users have a reputation for being lazy couch potatoes, but for me alcohol has that stupefying effect. When I get stoned on high octane cannabis I feel like there are a million things that I want to do, so I rarely sit on the couch for very long. Since the lockdown was over I could go to the gym, or exercise outside, and use the spare room as a place to smoke cannabis. This way I don’t make the entire home reek of marijuana smoke, it is all contained in one place. I like smoking cannabis, but I also like exercising and keeping myself in great shape.
