Single parent. Find the days stressful and long and the evenings boring and lonely. WIBU to start smoking weed to help me chill out? Can't ask anyone in real life, don't know where I'd get it from mind but it seems appealing ?

Are you having a giraffe? Is this a wind up?

donajimena Thu 13-Apr-17 19:00:35

If its not a wind up can I ask you what seems so appealing?

I think it's a slippery slop when you want it to help you de stress and I'm not sure being high when you are solely responsible for a child is a good idea or a very responsible thing tbh.

You don't need weed you need to find something you enjoy for the evenings

Reading
Adult colouring books
Crafts
Go Online & learn a new skill
Online dating

Do you have anyone that could give you an overnight break? ( your child's other parent, your family?) Then you could go to the cinema or something and be you

have you ever smoked it before ,if not why now ?

I have been a single parent more than once. .
Never turned me into a druggie. .
Think you need a more appropriate hobby as a dm imo. .

DonaldStott Thu 13-Apr-17 19:06:19

Was it you who started this exact same thread the other week?

Chillyegg Thu 13-Apr-17 19:06:46

No. Go to the drs speak about your stresses and anxiety.

Get a hobby thats easy and distracts you

Sweets101 Thu 13-Apr-17 19:07:30

Are you the same person that asked before?
Personally i wouldn't, it's caused people i know problems they don't acknowledge, they're complete shots when they can't get any, and it makes them sleep oddly deeply (although again, they deny it!)

HelenaWay Thu 13-Apr-17 19:14:58

Did you already ask this last week?

harderandharder2breathe Thu 13-Apr-17 19:15:27

Nope. Illegal drugs are not the answer to any problem.

BastardBernie Thu 13-Apr-17 19:16:24

Yes. Yes you should.

Mrsknackered Thu 13-Apr-17 19:18:05

It's a wind up. OP's name is Marleybob hmm

stopfuckingshoutingatme Thu 13-Apr-17 19:18:53

Considering we are an island of binge Drinkers MN are very po faced about weed .

sparklefarts Thu 13-Apr-17 19:18:54

Oh calm down, having a weak joint is no different to having a glass of wine or one of the mn repeatedly recommended gins

Instasista Thu 13-Apr-17 19:18:57

Loads of people smoke weed. But if you don't already do it how do you intend to find a dealer hmm can't stick it in your Ocado delivery

marleybob Thu 13-Apr-17 19:20:34

Haven't done it since teenage years and not sure how to find a dealer

TheRealPooTroll Thu 13-Apr-17 19:21:49

I wouldn't. Only for the reason that I wouldn't want to be impaired by anything whilst in sole charge of kids. I never have more than 1 drink very occasionally unless dh is home and with weed you don't know exactly how it will impact you each time.
Try exercise and meditation instead or a hobby you can do at home. Or some good books to get into.

Wolfiefan Thu 13-Apr-17 19:22:28

Don't. Especially if you have kids.
It's illegal and can have very real health implications.
But you know that surely?! hmm

FloralCouchPants Thu 13-Apr-17 19:25:47

Not a single parent but DH and I both smoke most night after our 2 go to bed. A couple puffs aren't going to make you unable to provide for your kids and does not make you a druggie. Weed is better for your body then alcohol and a lot of other pharmaceuticals no one takes any time to think about taking.

TheRealPooTroll Thu 13-Apr-17 19:26:21

A glass of wine will have the same effect on you each time though (if it's the same wine). You can't always get the same weed and it could have no effect or put you on your arse. Not good when you're a single parent.
If you can get hold of some and have childcare then knock yourself out! But it's not a practical answer to your problems to just start regularly smoking weed.

TeaQuiero Thu 13-Apr-17 19:27:40

I'd take it up right now if I knew how to acquire some.

Doublevodkaredbull Thu 13-Apr-17 19:27:52

Back under your bridge.

Toadinthehole Thu 13-Apr-17 19:28:30

There's plenty of evidence that smoking weed will trigger psychosis if you have a genetic predisposition.

So if you do, enjoy the voices in your head.

Wolfiefan Thu 13-Apr-17 19:28:49

You have kids and smoke illegal drugs every night? FFS. It's better for you than alcohol?! Alcohol isn't illegal and most people wouldn't drink every night.
