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.

Yeah, it helps with the paranoia if the place is spotless.

What an 'interesting' first post.

Funnily enough this is about the most sensible thread I've read on here today.


lolaflores · 17/05/2013 16:36

Could I ask whether you would post the same question thus

"AIBU to drink whiskey/vodka/gin/wine whilst doing the house work."

I understand you have a medical condition but the other reason to zone out the tedium of house work is flimsy to say the least.
I don't really know why you are asking this


SPsCliffingAllOverMN · 17/05/2013 16:37

Of Corse you are been unreasonable!

Jesus. Why are cleaning the house?!

Be high for all I care but the cleaning?!

While you are at it, have a Jeffery

It's the best way to do housework.

I don't think you're being unreasonable at all. Enjoy!

You are, however, BU for starting this thread, as it will ruin your buzz


TheGreenGreenLadyOfOld · 17/05/2013 16:38

MammaTJ, I have been here for a long while, just changed names for the thread. I have been here long enough to know just how emotive some people can find the subject!

I never knew Pot made you clean?

Ponders how to score some


lolaflores · 17/05/2013 16:40

Do the housework. Don't do the house work. Why let a substance in on the decision or the act.


Lulabellarama · 17/05/2013 16:42

You can really be arsed to clean after smoking weed?
Go for it then.


ElectricSoftParade · 17/05/2013 16:43

While I rarely smoke it these days, when I do I find the tedium of housework just a bit more enjoyable.

Judging by the state of my hovel I should get some. Sad


BeCool · 17/05/2013 16:44

You must play some funky music too - what are you listening to?


TheGreenGreenLadyOfOld · 17/05/2013 16:49

I am normally a person who is easily distracted. I get side-tracked when I an three quarters of the way through a job. I can end up with 5 or 6 jobs done part ways, but nothing truly finished.
When I smoke, I get super focused, detail oriented, and have crazy stamina.
I go all 'Anthea Turner' and I can do the house top to bottom in three hours. I even dust buster the curtains and wipe the skirting boards!

Blush I usually end up listening to urban, busting out my middle aged white mum dance moves.

When I smoked weed I was barely able to open a packet of crisps, let alone clean a house. In fact, I still can't clean the house and I don't smoke it anymore. Grin Maybe I just suck at cleaning.


musicposy · 17/05/2013 16:59

You can do the house top to bottom in 3 hours? Send me some! (or come and do mine, in which case I don't care how stoned you are Grin )


YoniMontanasLittleFriend · 17/05/2013 18:13

YABU but if you are listening to cypress hill and gangster walking around the house with your hoover then YANBU


LadyBeagleEyes · 17/05/2013 18:20

I very occasionally have a smoke Op, and I'm the same as you.
My housework vastly improves, and yes I agree i get super focused and detail oriented.
It's been nearly a year since I had a joint though.
And my house is a tip, maybe I should get some in.


SPsCliffingAllOverMN · 17/05/2013 18:22

I used to smoke it and the last thing I wanted to do was clean.

This was when I was younger too.


MadameBlavatsky · 17/05/2013 18:25

Are you sure that you've not got speed and weed mixed up..? Grin
