And no, I don't smoke pot. I just like me some Jack, Cabo, or Alaskan Amber. All I need.
About the only time I smoke is when I'm fishing, and I seem to know a lot of guys that way.
i stick with my usual cocktail of meth and crack. weed is for pussies.
Stimulants are good way to focus on the swing and keep at it. Focus!
What was that? Someone coming to steal my pretzels? Quiet, they are coming, you have to hide. I hope my stomach does not growl or they'll hear me, but I need to get a snacky snack. What were were talking about?
I tried it twice. Both times it made me want to smoke more regular cigarettes to get the shitty taste out of my mouth.. I quit smoking all kinds of tobacco over 19 years ago. And I never felt better.
I must hang out with the wrong crowd. Everyone I know are overly responsible parents and workers, obeying The Man (and The Kids) every moment.
If something would alter my mental state I would take it. Uppers, downers, hallucinogens, pot, lsd, peyote, beer, whiskey, tequila, heroin, meth, coke, opium, magic mushrooms, you name it and I have likely used it unless it is something they just concocted in the past 20 years. I remember looking at a poster in the safety officer’s office of the construction company I used to work for. It listed just about every illicit drug known to man. I was standing there going down the list saying out loud to myself “that one, that one”, for almost the entire list when the safety gal ask me what I was doing. I ssid listing off all the ones I had taken. She was a bit taken back.
Now days a couple of cups of strong coffee is about as crazy as I will get. Sometimes I might double up the recommended dose of Ibuprofen.
Man I thought speed-balls were all the rage man im out of the loop. lol
I grew up in northern California, you can smoke on the river and no cops would bug you because its technically decriminalized unless they were federal. So from guides to there clients a good 80% of people burn the wacky tobackie. now those are just the ones who do it in the open. I would much rather have a stoned guide than a drunk. California already has laws written for legalization and taxation, just not in place. what a random topic.
It seems that I get (read take) so litle time to fish anymore, what with being caught up in all of those trappings that I said I would never get caught up in , that when I fish that is all I do. I am lucky to remember to hydrate when on stream or on the beach. Having said that, the euphoria I experience on the beach when I actually hook up with a decent fish is such that any enhacement could quite possibly produce a reaction / celebration not suitable for a public beach.
Should I retire and have accasion to sepnd more time fishing...........who knows what I might partake in.
OMJ. You must have been in bad shape back then.:rofl:
Only when fishing with chronies, buggers, nymphs, emergers,dry's,etc.etc.
I'm stickin' with health food, home baked bread, good ale and lots of unpolluted air. After 71 years I have never smoked a cigarette of any kind, done any drugs and have for the most part given junk food a wide berth. The reward is good health so far (knock on wood!), blood pressure of 118 over 70, weight right at 170# and absolutely no medication save for some pain medication from time to time. My back was injured in a plane crash back in the 70's but usually only hurts when I overdo the physical stuff.
Our bodies usually come with the required number of organs to last a lifetime and should function to the end with reasonable care. Abusing them will only shorten their life and make our lives miserable toward the end. Just when you want to retire and enjoy the bounty of all you have worked for you realize that your previous bad judgement has precluded any possibility of that happening. Being retired for 10 years now I know lots of retired folk and believe me, a healthy one is the exception rather than the rule. Many are on so many meds that life is just what happens between doctor visits. You don't want to be those people when you retire.
So straighten up. Stop polluting your organs with dope, tobacco and crappy food. Be kind to your heart, kidneys, lungs and brain. None of that shit grows back once you fuck it up. You're on your own.
