“The way to gain a good reputation, is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.”
Society today is very much driven by immediate gratification, exemplified with the use of computers, cell phones, and text messaging. Marijuana and other substances also satisfy the desire for immediate gratification by acting as a social lubricant. Take a look at whether the use of technology or substances interrupts true social contact, getting to truly know other people or yourself. Is your reputation with yourself and others based on artificial contact or your true reputation? Building a good reputation takes genuine contacts, time, patience and hard work. If you continue to use, how long will it take to get there?
It takes a good 30 days to really begin to feel better physically, sleep better, and visually see differences in your self. Take the time to get there, and stick with your commitment.
