Why do I feel like everyone on this website smokes weed?(Not meant in a bad way)
@ Tanner, I agree on your last post. I used to smoke weed daily for about 6 years straight and it had a huge impact on my life, in more of a negative than positive way. I think smoking a joint once and a while is all good but I was smoking bongs 20 times a day, every day. I was always high, I had a hard time expressing myself, I had a hard time with my social life, I felt depressed, I was always paranoid, I got cranky very easy, I was lazy, and I ruined a lot of great relationships over it. After 6 years, I quit cold turkey and haven’t touched it in 3 and a half years. But like I said, I don’t think weed is bad at all, I think it could and does have beneficial effects but it should be taken in moderation.
The only drugs I intend on trying in the future, is DMT.

I would strongly discourage smoking maryjane under 18, it impairs brain functioning, which you’d like to avoid before the brains are well developed to handle the small psychosis you enter every time you smoke.
I almost never smoked when I was younger, then friends started doing it alot and I casually joined in over time. At one point I did it almost daily for 3 months and I had to conclude that it had a huge negative effect on me long term. That it felt good short term was a great argument to delude myself more.
I wanted to quit. And quitting for me isn’t taking the option: Never ever do it again. I wanted to have the strength to say no/yes in any situation, while being completely honest to myself (how can one be otherwise). It took awhile but I think I made it. Smoke occasionally now when the situation offers itself and it feels liberating.
Well, saying that one can control drug abuse is ridiculous. Just accepting that you need something else other than your own brain to develop some creative thoughts makes you out of control. My believe is that a person can stop with anything if there is enough will and strength to say “NO”.
I was smoking cigarettes and marijuana and I realized that it had a very bad effect on my body so I quit both. And in a very small time period.
Person just has to think it through and decide to quit. It can be hard to resist but there has to be a reminder in your head about bad influence cigarettes and marijuana had on your body. And most important thing is to create an image in you’re head of how good you will feel after you quit for good. That is some sort of a goal during a process of quitting.
Or it’s got nothing to do with this site but the internet in general and people are far more likely to openly discuss and admit to anything and everything (also known as keyboard courage) when they’re not face to face with others and can’t be eves-dropped on by random strangers when having a conversation with friends.
For the record I don’t smoke…well…anything but what other people want to do is there business and I’m cool with it, after all who am I am to judge.
I love weed. It’s been almost 5 years since I first started, and it’s grown into a more and more regular habit and has been daily for a couple of years (yikes!). It screws me up though- like luigi, it affects my social life, ability to express myself, I get lazy, depressed.. so I am trying to quit. It’s not easy though, the ideas I get are so much fun and I love the feeling. But I’ll be goin’ down to a once-in-a-while type deal..
I agree that a poll would be interesting! I personally don’t smoke weed and never have, but I’m open to trying it someday- I just won’t go out of my way for it and don’t want to try it unless I know the people that I’m around well.
weed makes very paranoid, have stopped regular smoking for about 6 or 7 years now.
i can take psychedelics, stimulants, opiates, dissociatives, benzos and various legal drugs without any paranoia however, and drink massively to excess. But weed can fry my head quicker than an egg in a pan.
I’m 26 now, probably time to cut most, if not all of that shit out as well.
i think that maryjane cultivates the kind of deep thinking, open mindedness that similar to the kind of thinking on this blog,when i first stumbled on to this blog i was pretty baked spent like three hours browsing the sight
Because we do! No just kidding, I actually only started smoking last year and I’m 21 now. I wouldn’t even consider myself a smoker because I’m only recreational with it. I have found though that most of my good friends with whom I have intelligent conversations with are all weed smokers.
In no way am I persuading you to try weed but if you decide to you need to be in comfortable social setting for it to me enjoyable. I can only say that I smoke with my tight knit of friends that all know my personality.
@zon: when sobriety get boring try going somehwere u’ve never been. If not sober u won’t be alert enough to take in everything. those “boring” time quickly turns into the addiction. i get stir crazy if i stay in one place to long. as a result i’ve been to 6 countries, on three different continents in the last 5 years. if you do it right it doesn’t cost any more that staying stoned at home.
@ johannes: I agree completely with what u say about weed and alcohol.
I don’t use, but I think it should still be legal. I don’t believe in laws that protect people from themselves. if ur dumb enough to kill yourself I say go ahead. (no offence intended to any one)
I understand the potential for different effects that chemical can have on the body. And how the presence of any one chemical naturaly found in a human body can easily vary, hormones attributing to the different levels of irritably or humor. Given balances may be considered ideal to others. I happened to love my natural balance, but understand y some desire to alter theirs. As far as their balancing doesn’t affect mine, I see no problem with anything.
i am a safe and responsible drug user, i just do a varied selection of drugs. the only real problem i have is binge drinking,
that and crystal meth. plus the day-long smoking of crack cocaine. oh and intravaenously partaking of heroin, an 8-ball of peruvian flake cocaine for breakfast, PCP to help me work out and do yoga, and regular speed combined with viagra to keep me erect while having unprotected sex with prostitutes at the harbour in the evenings.
@Martijn I agree with you in underage use, and the way you describe “quiting” is without a doubt the only way.
Mind over matter ;) and this goes for anything in life , consider consequences and make educated decisions, which for you as a poker player is pretty much an essential thing ;)
@zon I get what you say, have the same thing,
@Ben I have lived all over and what you say is quite irrelevant on the subject of druguse. I have experienced in my opinion more layers of the places I have visited and have lived in being both sober and intoxicated, on a variety of things. The term addiction is something that does not really belong in a cannabis discussion. Most negative effects are merely enhanced existing conditions. I am not arguing that that is a good thing, it however in no way justifies the all out governmental lies campaigns etc. Education is the key. We are supposed to be smart and able to decide how we wish to achieve our bliss ;)
Cant get any greener ;)
