Bruddah, I think you missed the '80s, and maybe even some of the '70s too!

I did miss that part of my childhood. I smoked weed from the early 70's until the very early 90's. It wasn't as strong as it is now. I smoked an ounce a week. Also, when available I smoked Thai sticks, hash and hash oil. From the mid 70's until the very early 90's I drank heavily. A case of beer a day on the weekends plus hard liquor was not uncommon. Six to twelve a night after work on the weekdays was also not uncommon. Smoking weed and drinking a few at lunch was a normal day for me. I can't remember what I started my day with every morning. On top of this I smoked cigarettes to the tune of 1 - 2 packs a day. I finally quit the cigs in 1996. The cigs started around the time I was 12 or 13. The weed started when I was 14. Drinking started at 16. I finished my drug career with crystal meth and cocaine. I got down to 138 pounds and a 32 or 34 inch waste. I quit everything at once cold turkey, except the cigs. I quit those cold turkey, too. But not until a few years later.
It all started while being abused physically, mentally and verbally growing up. My father was not a very nice person. I have two older brothers that escaped from my parents grip when they turned 18 which means I was 9 and then 13. After the last brother left all of my father's abuse fell on me instead of being divided amongst the three of us. Even my mother joined in at times.
Between the abuse by my parents and the self abuse no wonder my body is falling apart...
Just so you know I was just messing with you all about not knowing who Cash and the Highwaymen were.
