In the movie The Avengers, the Hulk had that brilliant line where he said “that’s my secret, Cap, I’m always angry.” This really resonated with me, because I have suffered from anger problems for years.
I do yoga and meditation to try and keep myself calm, but sometimes nothing seems to work.
Nothing works except for cannabis, which does the trick every time. The worst thing I can do is drink alcohol, because that makes me stupid and belligerent and spoiling for a fight! I’m not joking, either, when I used to go to bars I got into a lot of fights. I am still under a lifetime ban at three different bars, although I’m proud to say that once I started smoking cannabis I never got into another public fight. I have learned enough over the years to only go out and socialize while under the influence of cannabis. If I am stone-cold sober, then I will start drinking booze when I go out, and it never ends well. A few months ago the local cannabis dispensary opened up a smokers lounge in an adjoining building. This is the best of both worlds for me, because I can still socialize, but instead of being tempted to drink alcohol I can consume a steady supply of cannabis products. I usually buy a cannabis drink, either a soda pop or a fruit juice, so I have something to sip on while I talk to people. Cannabis drinks are superior to alcohol in every way, and they help to keep my anger issues at bay.
