Too much weed can damage your brain. Since 5 years ago when I was smoking a gram a day I've had cognitive problems. I constantly blank out when people are talking to me as if I don't understand English. Anyone else ruin their life this way, or any suggestions? This is by far the most depressing thing that's happened in my life.
Duing college i smoked weed everyday with some 'friends', have a not so cute case schizofrenia now two years down the line. Wouldnt say i was mentaly strong before though to be fair but smoking the dank all day every day didn't help.
It was like most of the day 2-4 times at the time. I've smoked since then but not nearly as heavily. It doesn't seem to worsen what already happened 5 years ago so I'm thinking I might have had like a mini stroke or something.
Bowl hits, I would assure you it's not okay even these day without weed it takes so much effort to just pay attention to a conversation. Let it be a warning to anyone who wants to smoke weed all day every day.
were you in school/uni at all during those 5 years? i find the greatest degeneration of cognitive functions i've had, is after prolonged breaks of no school because i'm a lazy fuck that can't be arsed to learn stuff that isn't oriented around hobbies. weed definitely makes it worse because it often makes those problems seem okay, and every single day is ended with "eh i'll do it tomorrow"
that said, weed's really fucked up my anxiety. if i smoke too much sativa, i get paranoid/antsy, and attempting to abstain for a whole day is suck city & i always crack at night before going to bed (when the panic is worst)
weed also used to make me completely fine with going outside & socializing. it was like having a few drinks. now, i constantly worry about other people; if they can hear me thinking/breathing, if they think I'm acting weird/creepy, if i'm walking too slow/fast, etc. every interaction is done with the hope that i'm not coming across as a complete spastic that will have the campus cops called on me for anti-social behavior
Same thing happens to me OP. I smoked for ~7 years, with stretches of 1-2 years smoking every day and usually all day.
It's like someone hits a hard reset in my brain when someone is explaining something and I literally take in no information for a few seconds.
Happens when I'm talking as well, I'll completely forget what I'm saying.
I haven't smoked for ~5 months and it still happens, less frequently though but I don't see it ever going away.
It's annoying and can trigger some hard anxiety sometimes but I've gotten used to asking people to repeat themselves or ask what we're talking about. I might look like an idiot for a second but people are usually understanding.
I've been smoking for 6 years OP. 4 years everyday almost. Probably 1-2 grams a day. I waste so much money and this shit. I do notice myself getting dumber and i'm always trying to quit. I find this shit really addictive. Believe it or not i also was addicted to ketamine for 2 years and that was easier to quit.
Same poster as before. I feel the same as you but i honestly heard it does get better with time. With people like yourself they said about 1-2 years. I believe there is still THC in your system even after 5 months.
what's up with these daily smokers? i smoke very rarely and when i do i always take a super long break until whenever i want to smoke again.
i'll smoke maybe up to 10 days or less in a year.
This happened to me too, OP. I was up to injecting two whole joints a day into my eyeballs and in between my toes just to hide the trackmarks when I was still in college. Now I rely solely on prostituting my own assh*le for sodomy sex in order to pay for my next injection of marijuana.
easy escapism that isn't quite as impacting as alcohol. i get too stoned, i can still do most of my hobbies. too drunk, and i spend the rest of the night trying to feel less terrible, being unable to focus on anything. weed also tends to be easier to obtain (and hide) than alcohol, particularly for <21 americucks.
You're a fucking pussy. I've been smoking 5-7grams a day (bong has a 1gram bowl) ontop of whatever dabs I do. I still manages to make it through as a physics major with a 3.75 GPA.
Same thing happened to me when I came off it after smoking daily for years. I also had a manic episode (which tricked me into thinking I was getting better) so I had to take zyprexa for nearly a year so as you can imagine, my brain feels completely fucked.
If you don't smoke on the daily you aren't smoking right. At least in my case, I smoke for the medical; smoke in the afternoon for pain or cramps, in the evening for sleep.sometimes in the morning if I'm feeling anxious. But only if I need it, 3 times a week at most.
weed literally ruined my life, what it was and what it will be
Ok, I'm saying you should be careful cause you could fuck up your brain. Really didn't ask if the opposite happened to anyone, but keep going as much as you are, It'll just make it all the more ironic when it does and you feel like I do.
How do you explain my case? You think I'm lying on this board for attention? I love smoking weed and always will but it's possible for people to cause damage to their body and if you don't believe me your fucking ignorant as fuck.
I think you were going to get fucked up by life whether you smoked weed or not. Even if that isn't true, you are saying don't smoke weed cause it will fuck you up guaranteed., I'm just letting people know this is bullshit
not really, but I had social anxiety before I started smoking. the difference, is when I'd started, smoking got rid of the anxiety altogether. it made it melt away like butter.
now, the anxiety isn't quite as bad when i'm sober (thanks to repeated conditioning through the years when smoking did make it better) but most sativas/hybrids make the anxiety worse anymore.
the problem is that many people (myself included) began these habits when they're still in the prime of adolescence. i guess you're right in a sense. I was 13/14 when i'd started, and i may as well still be that old in a mental/emotional sense
>A gram a day
That's like drinking 10 cups of coffee a day and then bitching about feeling like shit. If you weren't a irresponsible dumbass you'd be fine. It's probably all in your head anyway fuck all the hypochondriac idiots ITT
Weed is cool if you don't mind not giving much of a shit.
Pic related, an ounce i got for $175
And yeah I agree. If you start taking weed seriously especially while you're high you'll just be an annoying little bitch.
But if you're cool and chill and dungivafuk then it's the coolest thing
The blood saturation level for THC is pretty low, most of those grams never made it to your bloodstream, much less your brain, and just came out in your pee. Smoking a gram a day is a complete waste.
You may have been self medicating for whatever mental disturbance is causing the problems you're dealing with now, and also weed can exacerbate existing problems. You should talk to a psychologist and see what they have to say.
>I'm a student
>I know EVERYthing about medical stuff and weed effect on human
Lol saying you're med school doesn't make your opinion authentic nor does it make weed smoking good. Stay being high and being a loser while other doctors succeed
