My name is paul and I can only give you my experience.
I wont allow it in my life because it can become an addictive substance. I don't allow it in my life because I have an addictive personality. I don't allow it in my life because I am an alcoholic and I need to stay away from such substances.
Because of the alcohol problem I try to live a more healthy lifestyle. Because of the alcohol, I have cirrhosis of the liver and my GI Specialist said that if I smoke it, it will make my liver even more damaged.
I only offer my experience because I don't run anyone else's program. I don't look up or down on anyone who chooses to use it. Peace.
If you cannot control what happens to you, you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.
