"When you smoke herb, it reveals you to yourself"

I had some edibles last night before going to a techno party. It was great, enjoyed some music and my friends' company, but when the edibles really really started to kick in, I just got super introspective about my life choices. In the middle of the dance floor I went from jumping up and down and being loose to silently bobbing my head while I cry internally at not calling my parents enough, not being nicer to xyz, or just thinking of shit from waaaay back when I was a kid.

This always happens to me when I smoke, which isn't often (like once every 2-3 weeks). I remember a couple years ago I smoked while watching family guy with some friends, then when I went to bed a bit later, I was basically crying myself to sleep for not being closer to my sister.

Unrelated (sort of) thing that comes up whenever I reach a state of being 'out of it', whether that's being drunk, high, crossed, or fuck, just super focused on something at work, or just relaxing and getting really into music sober, I feel a sudden 'anxiety' that comes up whenever I go 'too far over the edge'.

[Get zoned out on something -> really enjoy it and get caught up in the moment -> 'shit i'm too far gone i've drifted too far from reality, i need to get back to being a productive human being and be normal'. ]

^ That's the usual thought process.

Am I doing something wrong, or is weed just revealing to myself that I'm just a sad sad person?

Try a different kind of weed. Or just stop. I don't smoke pot a lot because it makes me feel bad about myself.

You probably just have anxiety and repress it. Drugs and alcohol in general tend to show our own extremes more obviously, and what you're describing ("going over the edge") is textbook anxiety. Check if you have anxiety with your doctor.

>"When you smoke herb, it reveals you to yourself"

This is oversimplification to the point of falsehood. When you smoke, THC crosses the blood-brain barrier and starts minicing anandamide, and generally making large swaths of your brain function differently. That's the real description of what's going on chemically.

Talking about what effects you will *percieve* is shaky at best, because perception is notoriously messy and biased. To be brief, it may be accurate to claim that those are the effects of smoking, but it also may be totally inaccurate.

If you regulaelt have bad trips, it doesn't mean that you're a bad person inside; it just means that THC makes you personally feel like a bad person.

Consider cutting back or quitting. It's an expensive habit that leaves you with nothing to show for it later.

sounds like it's making you aware of things you're trying to ignore

how about you change yourself before it's too late?

>"When you smoke herb, it reveals you to yourself"

I smoked for a decade and this quote is 100% stoner bullshit. Some people are just extremely sensitive to weed. I've tripped on high doses of psychedelics and been totally fine and together but a few hits of a strong sativa with no tolerance will fuck my world up all night.

Good point, not to mention chronic use can really, really fuck with your natural dopamine reward system. And for many people weed is something they either do all the time or never, it's not like ______ other drug where they can do it once in a while, it lures you into daily usage very quickly, especially for people prone to addiction. And once your dopamine system is fucked, you become susceptible to an addiction to anything that gives you a boost of dopamine, trapping you in a vicious cycle of ups and downs.

For me, of all the drugs I've used, and that's a lot, weed is the #1 problem in my life, the gateway to everything else, the first domino that fell and knocked all the others down. I don't crave other drugs but the craving for weed is unbelievably intense psychologically. And one toke and I'm back in again, hooked for weeks. It's all related to how THC accumulates in the fat cells of the body and brain. No other drug stays in the body so persistently. Weed is very tricky. Do not underestimate it just because our culture is full of pro-weed sentiments. It can and will fuck your life up in subtle insidious ways if you're not incredibly careful. I'm not the only victim, most of my old friends are just as fucked.

I get exactly the same way. Guilt about a bunch of stuff, but offers no clear way to fix anything

I've found meditation to be a much better way to be introspective. I used to think that THC was meditation in chemical form, but I was wrong. They're totally different effects.

Now I only smoke or do edibles when I'm about to jerk off to some really good porn or watch a really good movie, maybe once a week
