Content creator Kabi WaJesus has recounted the moment he used to be a bhang addict.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the father of three said that he was introduced to smoking weed when he was just in class five.
The renowned content creator says that he found himself in the trap because of the desire to fit in and have friends.
“In the wild journey of life especially growing up in the ghetto, sometimes you find yourself taking unexpected turns. Nikiwa class 5, I was introduced to smoking weed – a choice born from the desire to fit in and hold onto friends. Little did I know, it was just the gateway to something more sinister – a notorious gang. They told me initiation required circumcision, a plot that would have seen me convince my parents to let me go under the knife in class 6. Thank you Jesus, that plan never materialized!” Kabi shared.
He noted that people joke about the drug but its usage can lead to serious consequences.
“We often hear people make light of weed, but it’s a path that can lead someone’s child to crime, heavy addiction, or a life as useful as a cabbage! 🥬 So let’s not make drugs look fun because you are an adult and maybe in control of yourself. What about that child who is watching and all they want is copy without any self control? How will their young minds be saved from this?” he posed.
The one time musician was later diagnosed with TB and he was required to stop smoking weed and cigarettes. Due to addiction, he however found himself using the substances again and again.
“The doctor’s orders were clear: quit smoking both weed & cigarettes. I managed a few months before falling off being sober.But after sometime I went right back to it full force. This made me realize that alone I can’t break my addictions,” he recounted.
He added that the urge to smoke disappeared completely when he became saved and born again in 2013
