>>35542749 I used to smoke everyday years ago. Weed would put me in the zone. I would focus on my breathing and enjoy the burn. Smoking after had a healing effect. My aches would warm up and I would feel better. I miss it sometimes.
>>35542946 I worked at a stone yard 10 years ago and we had another area that was our smoking(weed) area. Everyone smoked and we were so productive and friendly with customers. Our other location was full of older "normies" who didn't smoke. Customers always complained about them and said they drove out of their way to come to our location because we were nicer and more efficient.
>>35542749 I know several guys that smoke and lift almost everyday. They're healthy and if it affects their gains it's nominal. Weed effects everyone differently though. Some people just can't handle it. (The ones who get really paranoid or anxious etc.)
>>35543129 this.. for some reason it gave me severe panic attacks and not only when i smoked.. the panci attacks continued for over 3 years after i quit smoking and since then i feel strange in a way i can not describe.. does anybody have the same?
used to smoke with the lads all the time. nowadays i can't touch it unless i'm drunk, and even then only in small amounts. funny thing is, i have pretty much no problem with LSD, shrooms and stuff like that. its just the weak ass psychedelic that is weed that fucks with me.
>>35542838 Whenever I smoke before a workout I feel ridiculously weaker. Super unsteady with all my regular weights and I can't lift near as long. I've tried just pushing through but it still sucks. I usually just save it for unwinding after a workout.
>>35543153 Weed did the same thing to me too, gave me extremely bad panic attacks, and then I'd have panic attacks even when I wasn't smoking. That weird feeling is called Dissociation, and I've dealt with it for a while now. Surprisingly, there's a ton of people that have went through what you and I went through. It even happened to one of my close friends.
>>35543017 >>35543069 >>35543157 thank god there are some sensible people here willing to admit this. whenever i smoke i feel like im on the brink of death - feeling like the entire universe is about to implode all around me. any time you say this to any hardcore pothead they'll insist that weed is completely harmless and doesnt fuck with you in any way at all. it might not physically cause any of your body sacs to rupture, but it certainly can put some vietnam grade PTSD in your skull.
hippies will again insist you smoked the wrong blend/strain/whocares, mutter something about chemtrails and vanish in a puff of patchouli.
>>35543223 >willing to admit Like everyone else is just lying, and smokes despite having panic attacks every time? Sucks that your brain is weak and pathetic and you can't handle your shit, but that has nothing to do with the rest of us.
I smoke once before training and once at night only
When I started I felt like I got tired more easily but became more conected to my muscles/could engage them better in the different excersices.
Now that I did it for a while the tired feeling is gone and training high is awesome. My overall quality of training improved a lot, and I'm breaking PR's, getting more reps, and generally training harder.
I now count with more time than before though, and my diet is better, so I don't say my improved trainings are by merit of weed alone.
>>35543367 no man, even hanging out with people smoking weed makes me sick to my stomach. the smoke makes me dizzy in all the wrong ways, and i suddenly feel like there's always someone right behind me when there isnt.
its not for everybody, and im fine with that. i just wish people who smoke weed would realize that and not try to push it on people, knowing it could very well be incredibly dangerous to do so.
>>35542749 i vaporize my weed, and it affects me in this way: i have to eat much more to compensate the loss of energy. i have to not get high right before bed because i will have low quality sleep and thus recover slower.
Just quit about a month ago, smoked almost daily for a few years, already feel like my mind is "clearing up." Hard to explain but I felt like I was in a fucking daze 24/7, and you don't even really notice how fucked you are when you are smoking it so much.
>>35543423 it's bad and that's why i vaporize, if i didn't have some weed to overcompensate my stressful life i'd have killed myself already probably, or became addicted to dangerous chemicals such as alcohol, caffeïne or refined sugars
>>35542749 cant smoke weed anymore cause of shitty community. Full of strict catholic Mexicans that came from an ancient shamanistic culture that used peyote, shrooms, weed, salvia, and other psychedelics to better them selfs and there small culture as a society, but no longer use it cause magic is the devil. psychedelics help /fit/ be a 5%.
I feel I need to add: I smoked weed regularly for a few years in college, then sporadically since then.
You need to differentiate between these two very different scenarios:
1) Smoking quality weed on occasion for creative or social purposes.
2) Smoking regularly to "unwind" or "loosen up" or "chill with your homies".
One is a relevant way to expand your horizons and broaden your scope' the other is a way to delude yourself into thinking you're something you're not, and that everything is better than it really is, thus effectively preventing yourself from working to make things objectively better.
>>35543493 The other negative of course is that you've become much stupider. Whether you were too dumb to detect this or the weed made you too dumb to detect it, we'll never know, but what's certain is you've lost several IQ points.
>>35543508 >expand your horizons and broaden your scope
>saying the same thing in two different ways to make your argument appears stronger
Your point is entirely correct though. Weed is fine as an occasional stimulant, smoking with any regularity makes you lose focus and desire to improve. The nasty thing is, you only realize this after you've stopped smoking for a while.
>>35543593 I can agree it at least temporarily makes you dumber but why wouldn't you want that if its, like you say, a way of becoming happier for that period of time? Being smart isn't always good for your mind
>>35543579 1) Thats why you do it on special (mostly social) occasions like alcohol 2) doing 1) doesn't make people look down on you, rather gives you something in common 3) If you have enough dedication and will power to work out regularly then you should also have enough to keep yourself from smoking too much or getting too hooked
>>35543631 Wait what man? I said when I smoke its easy to have a lack of willpower. A problem I only deal with when high. In my life the only lack of willpower I have is to the cookies this lady brings into my office on Fridays.
Does someone else getting high really get you that upset?
>>35543615 >>35543606 1. It isn't temporary. I don't mean to sound spiteful but these delusions do not help you.
2. Life isn't meant to be a string of pleasure and happiness. You can dull your mind and senses in a quest for pleasure and happiness, but in end the latter will evade you, and you'll only possess the fleeting former
>The only negative I've found is when high my lack of willpower is more prevalent but that's a personal problem I can overcome
Lack of willpower is a well documented, widely accepted side effect of regular smoking. So in this one sentence you have not on,e but two delusions:
1) That this is a personal issue you have, and not a widespread side effect. Thus you are making excuses for your drug of choice at the expense of your own character. 2) That you can overcome an issue which you claim is your "personal problem" but admit that you haven't resolved it in 7 whole years. What's changed now compared to those 7 years that makes you think you can solve the problem now?
I am asking reasonable questions, and not in the least upset.
Disclaimer: I'm 28 now and smoked regularly for about 5 years in the distant past.
>>35543710 Nothing I've said is novel or even controversial. If you picked up a book sometime I'm sure this would be clear to you. Unfortunately your ability to read classical literature diminishes the more of these drugs you take, so you may never resolve these problems.
>>35543724 We're talking about someone who has smoked daily for years and severely harmed his brain. Even if you were forming meaningful relationships with the drugs, is it worth it?
>>35543716 I understand lack of willpower is a side effect of weed. I accept its there when I'm high and deal with it when it arises. I had that issue before smoking. Now when I'm not high I can overcome it easily. I mean if weed is directly causing that aspect of my brain when I'm not under the influence I'd be interested to learn more. But I've quit for over a year and I'd still get a nag to be a lazy shitter.
Do negative aspects of your personality just go away forever or do you have to deal with them as your life continues? Ive always been under the impression you deal with your faults as they arise.
>>35543760 When you're 80, granted we make it that far, would you rather think back on those times you had fun with friends and all those happy times with no worries fogging those memories or would you like to think about all the books you read? I'm sure we have evolved to enjoy those social memories a lot more.
Smoking weed doesn't ruin your life in any critical way unless something is wrong with your brain and you're too much of a loser to notice, in that case I'd agree but speaking from the other perspective I'd much rather have a lot of bonding moments and therefor friends than having read countless books.
>>35543855 >East of Eden >classical literature Are you truly this dumb?
>>35543840 Don't mistake pleasure for happiness. You can have more meaningful social relationships without the aid of drugs. Books are important so you can come to know important people and their ideas, which is exactly what you don't encounter hanging out with druggy friends watching Netflix.
>>35543153 After intensely smoking it for a period i got paranoia and social anxiety something fierce. At first smoking it was amazing, nothing else mattered in my life ay. Just smoking it and listening to music, playing vidya etc. Eventually anxiety trickled into my euphoria, and eventually i only felt highly strung when high. I got intensly paranoid for a long time, i fell for every deluded and asinine paranoid thought that floated into my mind. I refused to contact my friends for months because i thought they were talking shit about me and laughing at me. I realise now how self-centred weed made me. I realise these days that why the fuck care if people say shit about you? Being a paranoid AND a teenager is a bad thing. Easily the worst period of my life. I've smoked it recently, years later, but it's never the same as the first times i had it >inb4blogpost.
>>35543840 spending all my free time with my friends was the biggest mistake ive ever made. made a lot of sacrifices in life for them, and they ditched me when i came out of the closet. seriously, my 20s were a huge fucking waste.
>>35543878 Who says everyone that smokes weed hangs out with teenage skater kids that watch cartoons on netflix? When I smoke I like to think about the person I am the person I want to be etc. I don't just use it to numb my brain and run away from any responsibility as an individual. Psychadelics, weed being one of the softer ones, it can and does open your mind up to such concepts if you're willing to explore in that direction. I myself despise those that just get high for the blurry vision and being able to tell all their friends about how "fucking stoned" they are
>load giant fucking bowl up in preparation for my long run bcuz Sunday is Runday >Seriously pack that shit in there, even put some lil sprinklies of wax my m8 gave me >pdddttttbbbrrrrrrrpppbbrrttrrrrbbbb >fill lungs to max capacity, each bronchial tube swollen and throbbing like thousands of protesting earth worms but I power through anyways >grow, grow >get dat tickle in my chest, exhale/beatbox it out >I can physically feel the THC ford the blood brain barrier inside my skull >Oh shit.gif >slowly space walk out of my bathroom >insert headphones, cue Mad Max: Fury Road Soundtrack >begin run >best run I ever had >feel like Im time warping >jesus im going so fast >shift into primal mode, I am now a plainsman running alongside a pack of wild stallions >run for 4 hours straight before I stop to look down at my running app >mfw I have gone .68 miles >mfw i did this in 13 minutes
man i cant wait for weed to be legal everywhere so that everyones parents can start smoking it, then it wont be cool and everyone will stop and then we wont have to hear stoners talk about how stoned they are all the time
>>35543593 too bad Im too smart to even enjoy lifting, I'm total loser but can't enjoy things cos I "smart em out for me" like lifting for example: >get good at this so you can eat and get hot bitches >but that is not for greater men, writing books and doing movies and being fucking creator is >oh fug then: >go to school >get anxious and panicked as shit because you might not pass courses >don't pass courses >life crisis life sure is fun
I think for those who feel anxiety, etc. When they smoke weed have fears they ignore but weed allows them to see them more clear so its harder maybe to avoid?, this is only a perspective so dont get your jimmies rustled. I used to get anxiety when id get high, id feel uncomfortable with others and hated awkward silence but i was concious of what was happening and realised theres no reason to panic, the world is beutiful, hakuna matada.
>>35544024 was in a similar position, weed really helped me out of that mindset and being smart enough to, after having expirienced the world in a dumbed down version like the majority of people view it, seeing past this facade that intelligence puts in front of your eyes made me a normal person again. Honestly the smarter you are the more I'd encourage you to try some weed
>I fuck with savages you a fuck boy you cant hang. > you can find me posted up on frank block with my fuccing gang. >you aint really bout shit, stay out my spot and dont speak my name or I pull up at your fuckin blok at night wearin all black and let that 40 bang. >I fucked your girl and I aint even trying, and lil hoe she fuckin thot. >got her off the molly she rollin all she good for is givin top. >I got loudpack I got school buses, what you want senpai come and shop. >I got a big 40 with a 30 clip and I call that bitch my fucking mop. >The double F hold up my strap, A lot of yall just 4chin flex but this shit aint just a fuckin rap. >I hear one diss and I'm running up in your fucking trap. >You thought shit was sweet till I ran up with no fucking mask. >Always closing a check, bitch Im really bout mine. >You a broke boy, but you rock designer, that shit dont sound right. >thought you could sneak diss and wont get found right. >till you get caught in traffic at the wrong place at the wrong time.

>>35544070 then you should know that it's not weed that is the enemy here but the means of consumption and the environment you are using it in
And to keep it relevant to /fit/, smoking weed within a fitness related lifestyle really puts me back into that mindset that made me start all this in the first place and refreshes my motivation enormously
I wouldn't encoure using it to somehow magically boost your muscle growth but rather to improve your mindset and dedication to this sport and the value of it's benefits
Smoked from age 18-23 >No motivation but still worked out >Tried to convince myself I didn't have a problem even though I knew I did
I eventually quit smoking all together. As soon as I did the first 3 weeks were hell. Coughing up thick, green mucus constantly. After the storm I could breathe so much better. Was able to do a 30m sprint without fucking dying. Now I just vape only and occasionally. I finally want to hang out with people vs go get high by myself. I can sprint like I used to when I did track and I just overall feel better.
>If you can handle weed, good for you >If you can't handle weed, that's okay.
>>35544547 Not him, but when i quit weed it was hell. Couldn't eat for the first two weeks and lost 16 pounds, I was also coughing up nasty shit. I had the worst diarrhea for about a week, had trouble sleeping and i'd wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, but still cold at the same time. Had crazy mood swings, couldn't focus on anything. Also had the most vivid and intense dreams.
>tfw smoking weed used to be like magic >felt great, everything was fun, gave me a very positive perspective now >get high >get stuck in horrible negative thought loops >can't think about anything other than what a fucking fat loser I am
I vape several nights a week, sometimes earlier in the day on weekends.
I am terribly unproductive when high, so after work I immediately go to the gym then cook dinner and do all my houseworks/errands. I couldn't even fathom smoking before working out.
Downside is my life is kind of bipolar, I spend my days working/training/getting all my shit out of the way and my nights vegetated almost. I can't do the normie thing and sit on my ass sober watching that seems insane to me.
>>35544657 You need to learn how to conquor your mind. It's not weed that's the problem. All weed is doing is exposing your psychological issues and bringing them to the surface after it was deep in your subconscious mind for so long.
I've been smoking for about 4 years, I used to smoke everyday an oz between 4 people and it definitely made me care less, but when I graduated high school I started getting medical grade edibles and I would get high alone or with one other friend and it's honestly helped me so much in life. I can't do it all the time because I just love the feeling of a clear mind to think about all the stuff I thought about while high, but I have a genuinely euphoric experience Everytime and it helps me become a more creative, peaceful person when sober. that being said, I would NEVER push weed on anyone. I absolutely hate alcohol and it makes me feel awful no matter what, and I am constantly pressured to drink and I can't imagine doing the same to others with weed. We all react to things differently, personally weed maybe once a day or 5x/week makes me feel peaceful and at ease (I have anxiety and BD) but I know a lot of people that just get paranoid or really tired and that's not a very fun high. Anyone who pressures you to smile weed is an asshole.
No way I could smoke right before working out but if I go to the gym when I haven't quite come down yet I usually have a good workout. Straining your muscles feels like nothing. I can tell my brain "squat" and I just kind of do it and even at high percentages it won't feel very difficult. Cardio also becomes cake and I usually fucking hate cardio.
Unfortunately I work at both gyms I work out at so it makes me kind of paranoid that my bosses will know.
>>35544987 Edible highs are great, especially since you're not actually inhaling anything. They have to be planned far in advance and you have to make sure you have nothing going on rest of the day and maybe even early the next morning which kinda sucks.
