AIBU to smoke pot while cleaning house?

My house, obviously, just to be clear! And I go outside to do it so the house isn't danky.
I do it for two reasons.
The first is because I have a chronic condition that can be painful, having a bit first means I ache less and can work harder for longer.The second reason is that housework is so routine it doesn't require much thought. It is a great time to let the mind wander, and let the body get on with the work.

someone I know took a big Mac home with her and slept with it on her pillow because it asked not to be eaten ( shed had lsd )

I only need the spring sunshine to get my urges to clean my house - when the sun is showing up all the dirt,dust and grime. Just been hours cleaning my floor to ceiling 2m 50 wide bow window inside. It has many bits/ridges of white UPV and had to keep stopping as back and legs were aching.
Next thing is the glass, but not today grin

Hmm wonders if this is the answer to my shithole

Arf. I'd be even worse at housework than usual if I skinned up.

Back in my raving days I'd come back from dancing and clean my flat top to bottom. My neighbours must have hated me.

zombie - Any parent should be teaching their kids that all drugs are just as bad that sounds like the South Park counselor going "Hi kids, drugs are bad mkaayy'
IME the most destructive drug is alcohol,yet there are countless 'drunk' threads on here for example.
Also i think headache pills are particularly destructive.

yeh i find a big fat spliff is great for cleaning the kitchen, apart from anything else, who wants to be a druggy mum in a dirty house? so it kind of motivates me...

ha! pot is infinitely less expensive than a cleaner.

Get a cleaner!

Eaten I know! I shouldn't actually be allowed here as I genuinely dont care what others do grin

A pal took an LSD then took himself off to A&E because he thought he was an orange and was terrified of being squeezed.

This was nearly 30 years ago and I still get the giggles when I think of it.

DH doesn't approve so it must be 15 years since I had a spliff. I can think of nothing more appropriate for housework than being off one's tits while doing it. I did mine last week after several cheeky champagnes, that was fun!

In answer to those who wonder why I would clean house, instead of relaxing...
I need a clean house for peace of mind.
I grew up in a situation where housework was always the last thing to get done, so it didn't often get done. blush
Too much mess, clutter or mucky surfaces, and I start feeling closed in, and stressed.
Pot can be mind stuff, or body stuff. The body stuff is great for relaxing, but I'd never accomplish anything.
The stuff that impacts the mind and not the body (as much) makes me feel really energetic. I also use it before a really long run, as I feel like I can go forever.
I focus, and because I am not hurting or aching, I finish the jobs I start. I can de-clutter without dithering, and I notice all the little things that can get missed in a regular tidy round.
I am not smoking the crazy strong stuff, it has never made me see things, or hear voices, or anything daft like that! grin

why waste good pot smoking time with housework. As Quentin Crisp said, the dust doesn't get any worse after the first 10 years, so just plonk yourself on the sofa and skin up a fat one.

I'm able to joke as I honestly dont care what someone on the internet does while she is alone in her own home

And yet here you are on MN wink grin

Eaten I'm able to joke as I honestly dont care what someone on the internet does while she is alone in her own home. Shes using the wrong stuff anyway so the house work wont get down. She will just sit laughing and eating grin

I just don't understand why people do it/joke about it. Just because nothing's happened yet doesn't mean it wouldn't.. I'm assuming you wouldn't allow your children to do it?

It's just a frame of mind that's completely alien to me. I probably wont ever understand it. shock

Wrote cannabis and meant cocain, by bad.

Tramadol, now we have some of that in the cupboard. Along with diclofenac, co codamol, dihydrocodeine and many more...

So I do a good line in semi legal drugs but have nothing stronger to get me interested in cleaning apart from some 1989 advocaat in the garage. That and tramadol, maybe?

That's bollox I always like a couple of lines of Colombian marching powder before I start the housework. Weed is for pussys

Haha yes YANBU. I've done it a million times. Enjoy.

Yanbu. You'll get hyper-focussed on zapping those really skanky bits behind the fridge.

Tramadol was the weirdest stuff for cleaning though. Totally wired and speedy, totally pain-free at last and couldn't relax enough to sleep or concentrate long enough to listen to music, so cleaned the cooker at 3.00am. The INSIDE of the cooker! hmm

Vodka redbulls would help you clean up.

I drank them all night while out. When I got in in the early hours I was wired. Pissed and couldn't sleep so cleaned up!

And when you become a paranoid schizophrenic the nurses may let you clean your padded cell...

My DustBuster was just a gateway Hoover smile

I wouldn't be "expert" on guitar hero without it grin
