I woke up at 2am and right away packed a fat bowl of cannabis and started puffing like a madman
I have recently started reading about “lucid dreaming” from my shrink. There was a guy who started doing hardcore research about lucid dreaming at a known University. When you learn the discipline of dreaming, you can control your own dreams, so this guy says. This is fascinating to me because I have a long history of nightmares and have been hiding out from our dreams for as long as I can remember. It turns out smoking a bunch of cannabis can mute your dreams, make them weak and not close, so I have been smoking lots of pot for years. At the advice of our shrink I decided to stop smoking cannabis for a few nights, to try and fully experience our dreams again. First of all, I had been a daily weed user for so long that it was a shock to our method to be totally clear all day long. I can’t say that I cared for it, however it wasn’t like I was kicking oxy or anything: there were no physical withdrawal symptoms, I just wanted to smoke marijuana! On the next night of being cannabis-free I had a particularly vivid nightmare, and it was quite frankly scary. I woke up at 2am and right away packed a fat bowl of cannabis and started puffing like a madman. I decided that as cool as clear dreaming sounded, that I was using cannabis for a particularly good reason. It had never been just about getting high, I needed the weed to mute our horrible dreams so that I could entirely get some rest.
