Why do I feel like everyone on this website smokes weed?(Not meant in a bad way)

3 years, 9 months ago

@ 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. :)

In my opinion, it is because in order to truly be interested in the things this site discusses, you have to have a curiosity about the unknown, and a desire to walk off the beaten path.

If this community were created 20 years from now, maybe not?

I don’t smoke weed anymore, haven’t smoked in ten years (and even then I smoked occasionally and only for a period of a year or so). I am providing info for statistical reasons. :)

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..

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 everyone has already said it.

However, I don’t think that age or maturity level has anything to do with RESPONSIBLE drug use. @Zon

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.

A guy I know smoked weed from the age of 14 daily almost. His parents being hippies didn’t really care about it. When he reached 22 his brain was so burnt out. He smoked marijuana but it was to “light” for him so he went on to Hashish. He then looked for other kinds of hits but “Luckily” only got addicted to alcohol. The thing is that realeasing yet another “toxic” agent ino our envioronment isn’t really worth it from my point of view.

Freedom with responsibility.

been smoking daily since 14 now 36 , use it with care, know yourself and never use to escape. I do have periods of not smoking anything at all, I have recently almost dropped regular sigs as they just don’t do anything for me, although at stressful times I can be weak.

And you may joke about drug abuse, as any abuse can be harmful.

As is with all matters of bliss, its personal taste and chemical composition.

Peace

^ syn.ther. your first post was on point! Couldn’t have said it better.
I have smoked marijuana daily for around two years now, I am 16 but thoroughly responsible with my usage. Marijuana is very ingrained in my family’s culture; my father is my smoking partner most days. It is true marijuana can be a very negative thing for many people but for many others, like myself, it improves and adds to our lives. Marijuana has, to a degree, shaped me into the person I am today. It seems maryjane and I are in a lifelong partnership.

Brandon, I have no idea what UDM stands for, but seeing as you typed it twice I’ll assume it was a compliment – thank you.

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.

personally find it nice to go teetotal for months at a time. sobriety gets boring though, after the initial brilliance of it.

@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.

@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 ;)

Peace
