John Mayer, the once proclaimed womanizing guitar wizard has announced he is ditching the booze for only weed. Mayer has hidden in the shadows since his chart-topping albums captivated women across the world, and even landed the singer-songwriter the most elite partners.
“I put (cannabis) where drinking used to go, and the quality of life has gone up considerably,” Mayer explained to Rolling Stone. “Drinking is a fucking con. How much is enough? Every time I drank, I was looking for some fixed amount. It always feels wrong for me. I always feel like I went overboard. ‘I said two; now it’s three, now we’re at four?’ I never had a serious issue with it, but I remember looking around going, ‘This feels rigged. I’m taking a break.’ There’s never an amount that felt like I was succeeding in life. It always felt wrong.”
To crystallize his newfound stoner lifestyle, John has gone all-in, facing tours with Dead and Company, the rebirth of The Grateful Dead, and exploring with hallucinogens when appropriate – and when you’re playing with the Dead, it’s always the right time.
“I was always the guy saying that I didn’t like altered states. Once you know who you are, then it becomes OK.” Mayer said. “I’m much more open-minded to small changes in consciousness. I remember every trip I ever took. I remember every thought I ever had when I laid there.”
Just like most who kick alcoholic, he is now living a life without hangovers and is accomplishing much more work than before. John just released “The Search for Everything” earlier this year, and he continues to tour, both solo and with the Dead, and his newest single, “Still Feel Like Your Man,” an single dedicated to his ex Katy Perry,which now has over 4 million YouTube views in the two months since its release.
The trend of giving up marijuana is becoming more apparent with strong influences igniting the flame.
