>>7245>Is the soda stream easy to use/clean?
Dead easy. The most time I spend on it is when I change the cartridge and even that takes like 2 minutes tops. There's not really a lot of cleaning, I wipe it down occasionally and disinfect the nozzle but it's not really a big deal, only water touches it and even if you use their syrups, those go in after you fizzed it. I also don't drink from their branded bottles (they come with the device and are necessary because they have to fit correctly), I just use them to fizz and then pour the water into my glass drinking bottle.
having the machine, it's so convenient. I live on the 4th floor without an elevator and buying beverages is a drag. If your place has hard water, you should also invest in a water filter, but they're cheap. Where I used to live, the water was terrible and had to be filtered to taste good, but I've moved and now the water is great! It really makes a big difference.
>It's kind of inspiring to know that it's possible to keep ones vices in check and it doesn't have to be all or nothing for everyone. Kind of jealous tbh.
Haha no, I still suck at keeping myself in check. Whenever I did get weed, I went overboard and smoked it much sooner than intended. First I tried to control myself by giving half of it to a friend so I'd have to ask her if I wanted the rest, but I was still frustrated with how much I thought about it knowing I could have it anytime. So since then I've only bought small amounts (like 1-3 grams each time) and I don't have a dealer, so I only get weed when I coincidentally meet a smoker who will connect me or sell me some of their own, which takes months in between buys. My social reclusiveness is saving my ass here. I think alcohol is way harder to quit; I've dated both a stoner and an alcoholic and both were awfully addicted but the alcoholic had a much easier time hiding his addiction, being drunk, and buying it, compared to smoking weed which leaves more traces and is still harder to get (illegal country)
