Sobriety

Any of you old guys experimenting with sobriety yet?

Does cannabis with zero THC count as sobriety?

Not really experimenting per se. Sometimes I simply forget to drink, vape, or pop or I don’t have time.
Kinda like vitamins or brushing your teeth.

I don't drink much nowadays. I dabble. Never giving up the ganja, that's my medication.
The service here sucks.

CBD does count as sobriety because 90% the products marketed as such contain no cannabinoids whatsoever.

But the legit stuff has lots of benefits, especially on the subject of sleep. Still counts as sober since the THC is trace if any.

Also wanted to mention a really great series of interviews in the latest Thrasher (Aug 2019) on the subject of sobering up. Surprisingly, I've never associated skate culture with sobriety and was moved by the experiences of some heavy hitters like Elissa Steamer, AVE, Muska, Andrew Reynolds, etc. Was especially stoked for Arto Saari who gave up the ghost and credits sobriety for his new passion for surfing. Definitely worth a read if you pass by it on the news stands.

Still sober myself-- gave it all up for surfing. If I need a fix, I drink kombucha or zap myself with 9 volt battery. Life is good.

Atta boy Howly....some days I do miss a nice cold brew....but not enough to risk going back in full on drinking like I used to. Sometimes sobriety feels pretty damn boring. I occassionally wonder how much more invitations I might get to kick it if I was still drinking. Never get invited to parties any more which kind of sucks cause I still like to hang out and have a good time. I just dont need booze to do it.
