I'm a 64 year old guy and I've been a regular user of pot for about 7 years (since I retired). I particularly like my home made brownies, which are apparently stronger then hell! I eat 1.5 brownies a night, which helps me sleep. Things are changing though!

I am also a recovering alcoholic, so that plays into it a bit. I believe that, through long term drinking, about 45 years, I damaged my liver and I am paying a price, which may seem weird unless you have liver damage. One of the main affects of my liver damage is almost constant itching. I have a friend with liver damage and he mentioned that itching is a real thing. It's so bad at times that it affects my sleep, and the brownies don't seem to be working as well.

I almost forgot!! My short term memory right now is horrible. By the time I finish posting this I will probably have forgotten that I wrote it! Ha!

I'm hoping that someone on CD can relate, but if not, thanks for reading!

Why do you think this a joke? This is a real thing that I am experiencing.

For itching, look at any other meds you're taking, and look at your diet. And yeah, pot makes you high and forgetful LOL.

And brownies make you fat.

Itching,especially at night, can be a sign of jaundice/liver compromise and/or Hep. C.

Just don't start with the Cheetos, you won't be able to hide that other bad habit.

If you drank heavily enough to damage your liver, you probably also lost a lot of brain cells. I had an alcoholic buddy who coudn't remember anything new, and just kept going over events of 50 years ago. The pot may actually be good for you.
