Anyone ever survive a long weed t-break and is it worth it?
    #8621510 - 07/11/08 01:57 PM (6 years, 11 days ago)

Ive been wondering if I need a tolerance break from the great ganja. Ive been smoking for a long time, but for the past year I havent gone more than a week sober. I crave the highs I used to get when I wasnt smoking weed daily and using lsd a few days ago gave me a stronger appreciation for weed. Anyway Im wondering if tolerance breaks really are worth it?

Will my old school highs come back?

On the other side of my argument with myself is that maybe old school highs are something you experience when you are new to weed thus a tolerance break being a waste of time and aggresion.

I love being able to have that psycedelic way of thinking and enjoying life I get from smoking marijuana 1-3 times a day.

What do you guys think? Anyone here smoke weed only on occasion?

Also another thing that has been bugging me is how the two dealers that deal where I live always cheat on weight so anytime I buy from them in the future Ill have to call them out with my scale but its fucking annoying having to play this game when  getting the beautiful herb. Maybe I should take a tolerance break until I get enough money to buy like an ounce so I can weigh one order out and not have to do that constantly.


thanks in advance for advice and ideas.

Honestly, if you're smoking that much and have been for awhile, I'd suggest an extended break. Not necessarily for tolerance, but to prevent burnout. Not burnout in the sense of becoming perma fried, but burnout in the sense that you're going to abuse weed to death sooner or later if you keep that up. If you keep that level of use up, sooner or later pot is just going to make you anxious and dysphoric and panicky. It happens to people all the time. Try to take a few months off for  the sake of continuing to enjoy pot for years to come.

tolerance breaks are definitely worth it, as long as you don't just go back to smoking daily again. I find I enjoy weed a lot more if I smoke very ~3 days. rather than 3 times every day. You'll probably be a lot less tired too.

If you don't think you can survive a break from smoking weed, you should take a break from smoking weed. And it has nothing to do with tolerance everything to do with teaching yourself about contentment and the source of your own happiness in every day life.

Plus, when you go back to smoking weed, it'll be that much better.

Yeah, weed should be something you choose to do to have a great time, not something you do continuously just cause that's "what you do."  And yes, your tolerance will go down  dramatically.  It won't be like when you first started smoking, but you'll still get blazed as shit.

I think after sunday (because I have a concert to go to- The Breeders, Kim Deal from The Pixies) I will make an attempt to stop smoking weed for a few days. I have taken a week long tolerance break twice this year but never longer. 

I think tolerance is the most confusing part of being a stoner cause its so easy to just light a bowl when you're feeling bored, down or even happy. ...............

If you're serious about it you might need more than a few days.  Just go for like three weeks, it'll be worth it.

After a month long break from the ganj, it took me ages to build up that tolerance again. But when I smoked again, fuck me was it ever powerful.

I never smoke much though. Just a little bowl or two in the evenings (or three bowls if it's ropey) every odd day.

Tommorow is day 14 of my tolerance break which is going just fine.  I may keep this up for another week or 3 (really not sure, but am considering waiting until I finish college finals).  I am wondering what weed will be like after this break. I have never gone this long and I picked up a quarter of really nice sour diesels.  I hope that old school euphoria comes back..... :psychsplit:  :sunny:

I'm thinking of taking a break soon, but I dunno. It's so easy to put it off one more day. So far I've done that for about 5 weeks.

I've taken a few tolerance breaks before, my longest being just under 4 weeks (3 weeks, 4 days). I was pretty disappointed after that break to be honest which is largely why I'm discouraged from doing it again. I got much higher the first couple times but within 3-5 days (smoking once or twice a day as I had before) I was right back where I was before.

I smoke about 4 times on a busy day, have been at this tempo for about 6-8 months im guessing. The only negative thing I've noticed from it is that I've been needing to smoke more ..n more.. n MORE as the months pass. I smoke way too much now per session that I'm gonna have to take a break purely to save money haha.

but lemme tell you something, I don't think burning out or permafry (lol) due to weed is a possibility. I get up every morning at 5 am and blaze the fuck and go to work. It helps me easy my thoughts, motivates me to work (believe it or not..maybe cuz it makes work more enjoyable), and like some people I'm perfectly sociable or more so when I'm high.

After work, I like to skate, BMX, and from time to time get dirty on a dirt bike if im lucky. And I usually blaze up before those events that I love so dearly..when 'unda da influence' of weed while doing these activities, you guessed it, I'm more suitied for the situation. I'm not saying weeds like superjuice that makes me do tricks or 'stunts' I wasnt able to do before, but it allows me to relax my thoughts (again) and focus on the matter at hand that really..matters! HAVING FUN!

To all the skaters out there that share this with me.. don't you love how when skating high everything becomes so intrepid with detail when you're really into it (like any other activity) and you actually realize your mistakes with more ease and are able to improve because you dont get as frustrated? fuckin love weed im sorry

skating blazed can be a great experience with some sativa strains. But I have more energy when I am sober. 

I think when I board blazed it is great for creativity cause I kind of think beyond the board and I am a very obscure type of skater, I am into mostly flatland type of tricks and those are good for blazing I think .  And as for having fun, blazing defiantly helps with that part of sk8ing too!!



~~ on topic of tolerance I have one friend who took a month long break and told me the next time he smoked he had one of those slow motion old school type of highs and another friend that said he had an insane high too when he smoked after abstaining for awhile.

I guess I will find out for myself soon enough what a tolerance break can do, I hope it's good tho!!! I also am not gonna get back to daily use, I think I will keep it to once every few days to keep my tolerance leveled

I haven't smoked in about a month now. Quit cold-turkey after years of constant use. It really wasn't that hard, I just ran out of home-grown and decided I didn't want to spend all my money anymore (at least until I get a job).
