Advice for someone trying to quit and improve himself

2021.10.27 23:43 floweryroads Advice for someone trying to quit and improve himself

I have been smoking regularly since I was probably 16 or 17 (in my early 30s now). I feel as though my life is good and I am a successful and mature adult, but I feel as though marijuana is a crutch and that I could be more successful without it. I recently found this subreddit and every post I've read has resonated with me. I do not see any positive reason for smoking after I come home from work but I still do. I believe the time has come for me to really quit and I guess I'm looking for guidance.
I have a healthy relationship with my partner, our dog, a home that we share, a good and respectable job that I obtained after university and a positive relationship with family and friends. I think by all accounts, I am a fairly successful and well-balanced person. Maybe more importantly, I do not feel that there is anything particularly "wrong" with my life, just stuff that I would improve.
My partner does not smoke and is tolerant of my habit (and I really do have to give her credit for keeping me in check when it has gotten bad or when i start leaning on it more because I am going through a tough spot). I love cooking and cleaning when high with a podcast on. I love throwing a ball with my dog for an hour while high. I feel like I use it to kill what I see as some of the things that don't require my "focus" as much. I have struggled with depression throughout my life and I have relied on weed a lot during those times.
I think that is what I am struggling with is that I don't feel any "harm" but I also am well aware that my addiction is limiting who I am. I like playing music, but I always smoke weed before and then I don't push myself to really learn more or get better. I like getting high and exercising, and while I find it more enjoyable, I don't focus and push myself in the same way as when I work out sober (and let's be real I generally work out less when I regularly get high). I am junior in my field and I want to spend the extra hours now learning and improving myself before we have kids but instead of putting in the extra hours I smoke weed after work, watch TV, try and do a bit of reading but am too high and then dick (for example last night spending two hours looking at usb hubs then ultimately buying a multi plug).
I get so frustrated with myself for it but then I'm right back at it again, even thinking about getting home in the evening so that I can get high and "chill". I think what I struggle with in terms of really quitting is that my life isn't so bad that its actively falling apart with weed - but I know deep down that I could make my life and myself better without it. I could do more for my partner, my dog, I would be better at keeping in touch with my friends and family (who I am since December living farther away from and therefore using more weed).
I have taken a month off of weed (and alcohol) here and there without problem - but it's always in my mind that I will eventually be able to smoke after the month is done. I guess I am looking for advice for how to get going on really quitting, particularly when your life isn't all shit because of it and where the fact that you're doing okay can fuck with your self-motivation for ultimately quitting and doing even better for yourself.
Would appreciate any wisdom (and in the meantime will keep reading through this subreddit). Thanks.

Giannis in 35 minutes tonight:
40 PTS 16 REB 7 AST
It’s his 2nd career 40/15/5 game in 35 minutes or fewer. The rest of the NBA has 2 combined in the last 40 seasons (Embiid and Boogie).
Just an incredible performance from Giannis wasted by the Bucks.

2021.10.27 23:43 mailofsean God is so amazing! Reading the new book Is Atheism Dead.

God is just so amazing. I have been really enjoying the book Is Atheism Dead, by Eric Metaxas. The author is going over all the recent scientific evidence for God's existence, and I agree with the author, that if you honestly look at all the evidence you are crazy to think there couldn't be a creator of the universe. At that point you are just holding onto your own beliefs and refusing to accept anything else.
I already fully believe in the God of the bible, the father of Jesus, with all of my heart, but hearing about what science has learned about our universe, how it was created, and how perfectly balanced and setup it was in SO many ways, it is just blowing me away at how intelligent and what a mighty creator and engineer God is.
The whole universe is setup perfectly for life to exist only on this planet, from the total mass of the universe, to strength and ratio of strength of the basic forces of gravity, electromagnetic, strong and weak nuclear force, the position of our solar system in the galaxy, our moon, the other planets, how light and water work, its all so mind blowingly amazing. The statistical odds of any life existing anywhere in the universe is so small its practically impossible, but this planet was setup perfectly for, and life was created here and science has zero actual answers that could even be.

I knew God was absolutely brilliant, but this just takes it to such a higher level for me. I am so blown away that such an amazing and brilliant God, the only God, could create us and want to know us and have relationship with us, and want to adopt us into His family. God is absolutely amazing!

2021.10.27 23:43 Traditional-Ad-2204 [work needed] Anyone want an animated explainer video for their channel?

I'm a professional animator, and I recently switched to selling on Fiverr (rather than just finding clients on social media).
Fiverr doesn't send much traffic to accounts without reviews, so I'm offering my services at 90-95% off to get the first few reviews under my belt.
My normal prices start at 240 USD for a 30-second explainer animation, but I'm offering 30-second animations for just 20 bucks to get things going.
Here's an example of my work:
Please send me a DM if you're interested.
Keep in mind I only plan on creating about 3 or 4 animations at this price, so I apologize in advance if I have already found some people to work with when you reach out!

I’ve been looking for a Venus fly trap in Toronto. Not a big one, just a normal sized one. I saw they have them at Lowes but they’re sold out. Not sure how I feel about ordering them online as I’m not experienced.

2021.10.27 23:43 TheAkawardGirl CWilbur was the reason that cTommy hates hi-"

"CWilbur was the reason that cTommy hates hi-" NO SHUT UP DON'T FINISH THAT SENTENCE 😤🔫
The reason cTommy has unresolved trauma surrounding willbur in pogtopia and afterlife was because of Wilbur's poor mental health and at that time (pogtopia) wilbur was in a depressive state, wilbur would never lay a hand on Tommy. But he couldn't control that because he wasn't "in his right mind" so therefore, the only reason why their relationship is so strained is because of both (cWilbur and cTommy) mental health issues.
They need to fucking heal before having a stable relationship again, but it's already clear that their relationship won't change. Well, at least not positively unless cWilbur gets therapy or smth-

2021.10.27 23:43 Annie_84 Halloween Concerns

As a new resident to Hoboken from Brooklyn I am extremely concerned Halloween seems like it is going to be “normal.” The privilege and arrogance in Hoboken is concerning. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. I am horrified by the Halloween decorations and excitement surrounding it. I can promise you my kid is staying inside all night and will be putting a sign on my door to not knock.
I am surprised how unliberal this town is.
