Smoking Weed And Sports
Smoking weed and sports.
For 25 years I played very competitive soccer.
I started smoking when i was 15 and never in a million years did I ever think to smoke before a big game. I always thought that it would make me lazy slow and everything else weed is associated with.
When I was 17 I was getting ready for my game. At that time my brother came to me and asked if i wanted to smoke up with him. I thought why not, it wasn’t to big of a game and i loved smoking. So i did. Not to sure what kind of weed it was or the strain of it.
Either way when i walked on to that pitch i was BAKED!! I thought oh my god Im going to be the worst player ever!
The absolute opposite!!!!
I killed it. The weed had opened my mind and I was so much more creative I was thinking of plays i had never even thought of. I was making plays in mind 2-7 seconds in advanced. Having the courage and balls to try things i would never try. I would do moves on defenders that they would think is impossible. I was unstoppable!
My teammates were stunned! They had never seen me play like that before. I could think of the pass i was going to make before i even got the ball.
That same year our team had reached our very first provincial title game! Terrified with the decision if i should smoke before the biggest game of my life. I did, and I did not regret it. I had scored 2 goals and 2 assists in what was the best game of my life. Lifting that trophy that i dreamed to win since i was a kid was one of the greatest moments ever.
Of course I was only 17 then and body and mind was fresh. I think it would have a negative effect on my play now since i am now 30 LOL.
Thank you for listening to my story.
