For about a year I suffered from crippling migraines. Not just occasional headaches, but pain that impaired my vision, caused vomiting, and made me generally unable to function like a normal human being. I started smoking pot and I haven't had a migraine in about 10 months. I do it maybe 2-3 times a month, and most times I don`t even get completely stoned. I take 2 hits and it makes me a little giggly with a craving for peanut butter. I work from home in the evenings and I`m still sober enough to work while I`m "high." I don`t particularly enjoy being stoned out of my mind, and I only smoke to that point on rare occasions. I smoke because it helps me, not because it`s a bandaid solution to my life problems.
