I'm sure some of you have been smoking for a long time and I wanted to hear what you had to say. I thought it was a good way to eacape ubtil i realized that it made it hard to study for uni and have the drive to do anything except laze around and smoke. Is it really that detremental? What are the worst effects? Do you wish you have never started?
At first it opened many social doors and then I turned into an addicted piece of shit. It's good if you can handle it in moderation but if your life kind of sucks you'll become a degenerate addict.
I've smoked every day for periods of 6 months to over 2 years.
The long term effects are poor short term memory and you can have bad communication skills from being in your head too much.
Otherwise depression, anxiety and "cloudiness" from stopping only lasts a couple weeks or less.
The long term affects are really minor. If you are a lazy person you will probably be more lazy.
My advice is ditch it. Smoke on weekends if you want but every day is pointless, you waste a ton of money having to rip a bong every 30 minutes to feel anything.
Shit son, it took me 2 years of smoking a gram every day to realize it was bad for me. I've gone 6 months without smoking and I couldn't feel better.
Well maybe a gf would make thinks better but you know...
Read this shit.
Whenever i would smoke i would feel terrible about myself but whenever i wanted to smoke i couldnt find enough reasons to not smoke so i can see the point about weed not being addictive but we just end up snoking it constantly
Are you 14? Only children and idiots smoke that shit.
Either move on to something harder or put it down and work like an adult.
>in b4 "but I smoke weeedz and I'm not a loser"
Moving on to something harder is really stupid. Hard drugs have terrible short and long term side effects that are unjstifiable. At least weed can have arguments made for its use/abstinence
>Do you wish you have never started?
No. I don't regret taking LSD, either. Never lost control with either one, although I have no desire to smoke the amount I used to
But I do regret doing DXM. I started using it once a month, then it became once every week, then twice a week, then 3 times, then a hospital psych ward, then sober for 2 months, then once a month- 2 times a week for 3 months, then in the mental hospital for a month plus 2 weeks outpatient
I managed to stay sober for 3-4 months, then started again at once a month- once a week
I just used twice this week for the first time since I was last in the hospital I think. Or maybe second, I don't even know desu. If my parents found out at this point, they told me they'd literally kick me out and I'd be homeless.
They got mad at me and told me so bc they found LSD in my room. I almost left out a little cup for dosing robitussin that i found in my room from thursday night/friday morning. I think I know they're ticking timebombs, but I just literally don't care and I'd probably be forced to stop if they kicked me out, plus I just don't get along with my family, so it could be shitty temporarily but improve for the long term. Or it might just drive me to kill myself, which would be another solution
I feel relaxed and sleep easier if I smoke in the evening and feel good the next day as well. It's the only way I feel good. I haven't smoked for a couple years because I haven't had any friends during that time. I've been feeling miserable the entire time. I've been taking four Benadryls at night to fall asleep. And I have been on antidepressants for a couple years as well.
I've never had a girlfriend and never will at this rate (am 26). I am moving from the East Coast to CO, WA, or OR to be able to buy marijuana legally. It's the only thing I'm looking forward to.
I am a productive person whether I am smoking regularly or not. I work full time in a white collar job. Working, making money and being "productive" doesn't make you happy if you are a genuinely autistic person who will never have a girlfriend and is incapable of making friends.
If you sit around, eat junk food, play video games, watch anime, fuck around on 4chan, that's EXACTLY what you'll do when high.
If you play any musical instruments or draw & paint and do creative, productive things and work out and cook food, you'll be doing that when high.
The worst effects CAN be paranoia if you're smoking with your mom upstairs or with cops accross the street or something. Do it in the right place and in the right mindset.
> Do you wish you have never started?
fuck that noise, weed has been nothing but an improvement for my life. it helped me make friends when I had none, get a girlfriend when I was out of the dating game for over a year, helped me dicover new music and new things, etc.
Jesus. My vaporizer's waiting on warranty service right now so I built a grav bong out of two liter bottles. My tolerance is fucked right now though, a half-gram joint got me to barely a 4, but a pinch in the grav bong shoots me to a solid 8 for 2-3 hours. >>25806417
I just ate three benzos and downed a bottle of DXM. Never done it before. Been coming off of heroin though and I'm losing my mind. I had to do something. Heard some robots extolling the dxm high.
Is one bottle enough? What should I expect if it is?
>a gram a day
Son, that is an really big amount of weed. I smoke at most .2 grams every single night. Usually it's just my vaporizer and 0.1 gram of weed. So I am smoking every single day and I only use a gram in about a week. You are using a gram a day. You are probably doing 7 times the amount I smoke and I do it every single night.
I'm just putting that into perspective. You are the worst case scenario.
OP, just because you decide to start smoking weed doesn't mean you will end up like this guy. I smoke everyday and I seem to be fine. But I am not smoking as much as that guy is, and you probably would not either even if you did it every day. That is a really excessive amount, so his problems would not be your problems.
I regret it only because I smoked so much at an early age. Since you're at university age, it wouldn't be as harmful. But I say wait until your brain is fully matured.
But don't let this advice keep you from experiencing life. If an appealing opportunity arises, feel free to partake. Always use in moderation.
I should add, people smoke bigger amounts in joints, because it wastes a lot of smoke and people generally use lesser quality weed. When I am talking about 0.1 doses of weed, I am assuming you are talking about high quality or top shelf weed smoked in an efficient way.
I bet you I could smoke a gram a day of better weed than whatever you get for the same price as you pay for that .2g because of my connections.
>mfw ounces of dank cali weed for less than 150
Smoking gives me the opposite effect. I like to laze around all the time but when I'm high I feel like doing productive shit and staying active all day. I guess it depends on the person, but in general I feel like it lets me improve as a person.
I don't get blazed often, though, I smoke small quantities and use it as a little motivation boost before doing something.
2 or 3 days after work I smoke with my sister, and I always have a blast, just listening to music while we drive home is so amazing. I only have a problem with it when it makes me throw up and if I have to hide my highness
