#Aprella #day4 #HighForThis Catching up on this months challenge, a week in and I‘m already behind! I‘m a big believer in cannabis as medicine, I‘m well aware of it‘s ability as s pain reliever & anti inflammatory. When I was in my early 20s, my endometriosis was horrible. I‘d spend a week of each month at least, unable to move & so nauseous I ended up weighing 44kg. Cannabis was the only thing that helped, not just for my pain but my nausea too.

Mdargusch Glad you found relief! 2y
Cathythoughts I hear great things about the healing powers of cannabis .... thank god for it 🙏🏻 (edited) 2y
AmyG I have a friend with MS and it has helped him so much. 2y

#Aprella #HighForThis ?Eating diner (leftover vegan ramen) while starting this book I'm reviewing next week, I was contemplating what to use for today's prompt & I thought--actress, came of age in the late 60s-70s, describes herself as a "hippie-feminist"-she must have gotten high. I flipped through some of the essays & bingo!--I found a passage where she sets out to lose her virginity in college & 'smoked a joint' beforehand. My work is done! ?

Finished this on an airplane, so I guess I was technically #highforthis. Found her journey of addressing her trauma and her body and slowly coming to acceptance incredibly moving and emotional. Shines a light on how her society views women who don‘t fit cultural ideals. Acknowledges hasn‘t yet reach place of being body positive but working to get there. #aprella #booked2018 #bodypositive

Blaire Finished first quarter of #booked2018 a few days late. 2y
emilyhaldi Lol, perfect! 😆👌🏻 I wanted to like this one but it just did nothing for me🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
Reviewsbylola Hahaha good one!! ✈️ I didn‘t love Bad Feminist so I‘m not sure I‘ll be reading this. 2y

Mdargusch Good choice! 2y
Cinfhen Hahaha😂clever 💡 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Never fear. You‘ll still have entries from the books in our second season giveaway! Great job! 👏🏻🎉📚 2y
Blaire @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola I loved some of bad feminist, but other essays I skimmed so I don‘t watch enough tv/movies to get the context. I‘d heard several interviews with her about writing this and hearing her talk about it was moving. But certainly not for everyone. 2y

An account from a model who spent her childhood being raised in the wilderness by her mother and grandparents who enjoyed living off the land and smoking copious amounts of pot #wilderness #highforthis #readingresolutions #aprella @Jess7 @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi

Reviewsbylola Sounds like something I would enjoy! 2y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego One of my best friends raves about this book, recommending it to anyone who will listen. 😄 I have it but haven't read it yet. Sounds good though. The premise sounds kinda similar to Educated. 2y
kelseynicburke @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I really enjoyed it. I read the audiobook which is narrated by the author. I haven‘t heard of Educated, I‘ll have to take a look at that :) 2y

Cinfhen Same thought @emilyhaldi 🤩 2y
CouronneDhiver I almost chose this one for my book club last year... still haven‘t read it. Maybe it needs to be bumped up the list 2y

Reviewsbylola I‘ve never read Burroughs and I‘m not sure I‘m up for it! 2y

emilyhaldi Lol, I feel like there are a few books I've read that fit in this category 😆 2y
Mdargusch Good one! 😂 2y

youneverarrived @Reviewsbylola i don‘t usually bail but I couldn‘t get past 50 pages of this. Confused the life out of me. I do want to try reading Junky though. 2y

Great Expectations | Charles Dickens
post image

Supposedly many nineteenth century writers dabbled in their fair share of drugs, particularly Opium. One such author is Charles Dickens, who writes of opium dens and the effects of the drugs in his book The Mystery of Edwin Drood. One wonders if perhaps he was #highforthis while writing any of his great works? 🤩
Certainly, this portrait of him makes me incredibly suspicious 🤔

britt_brooke Sweet beard. 2y
saresmoore Hahaha! Perfect. I‘ve been a total slacker on the photo challenge, but I love the #Aprella playlist. It‘s great for a morning run! 2y

A bit of the old decorum and decay. A mobius strip for U.S. and the addict alike.
