trying to stop smoking...what to do now?
    #2227318 - 01/08/04 03:29 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

recently i've been trying to stop smoking the herb because it makes me incredibly antisocial.

here's a quick background on my situation: there's a girl i met at the beginning of break, let's call her B. we were both drunk and she wanted to hook up with me pretty badly, but i had to go and it was really late. in retrospect i'm kind of wishing i'd gotten with her..i've seen B another since then BUT i was stoned beforehand, not expecting to see her, and then i would freeze in an antisocial zoned-out haze - unable to converse with her or do much of anything, as a matter of fact. on this occasion i actually think there was a possibility of her smoking but i can't conclude either way. i absolutely hate it. i'd actually stopped smoking for a week or so and then tonight my friend and i were chillin and he got a call to go to this guy's house (B was there tonight) and although i am trying ot quit i let him smoke me up (he packed blueberry because we hadn't chilled in awhile). in retrospect although it may have been impolite or something maybe i should've said no thanks, even though it would've been a great smoke.

well, B was there and she smoked with the group. i remember now she'd said she doesn't like to smoke and i know why now. she wasn't talkative at all (normally very much so) and just looked really damn tired.

it was a painstakingly nervous, antisocial night. neither of us really talked much at all in the group (and i talked more than she did); we all watched tv. it killed me just sitting there because i wanted to talk to her and get to know her and find out about her and what she's all about...but weed was in the way. no matter how much i wanted to break out of my substance-induced shell, i couldn't. as much as i loved to smoke once, the magic's gone...replaced by this damn antisocial curse.

luckily, sobriety means i'm back to normal - pretty outgoing. a nice happy (as opposed to belligerent/out of control) drunkenness at a party means no inhibitions and it's been at those times i've had my best luck with the ladies...INCLUDING with B.

sorry for the rant...what do you all think?
thanks in advance

I've had weed get in the way of relationships. I was deeply in love with this girl and I couldn't stop thinking about her. Then I smoked some weed and that feeling of love for her went away. I was kind of mad because nothing beats the high of being in love. I didn't exactly have your problem because I'm already shy while sober.

yeah i realized that the high of being with a girl beats the hell out of being high from bud. that's why i have to stop...the idea of B sits in teh back of my mind and it is pulling me toward it pretty hard it seems...gotta fucking stop smoking and just go after the girl, for chrissakes.

So are you not sure you want to quit, or are you sure but you're having a tough time?
Here's what I did to quit when I really wanted to break out of the fog that comes with being a heavy smoker of kind bud for several years in high school and after i graduated:

1. Go out into the woods, desert, mountains, whatever the closest thing to a natural environment where you live and get right in your mind about what you've decided to do. (I know this sounds melodramatic but as many can attest, quitting pot when it is a huge part of your life can be a daunting task). This step probably isn't necessary but it was crucial for me.

2. Do you own a bong or another big glass piece? Destroy it. Smash it on the pavement and observe all the little shards of colorful resinated glass spilled out before you. Clean it up, shede a tear if you have to and move on.

3. Burn whatever quantity of herb you have in your possesion in a fire prepared for the purpose. An eigth of dank or a quarter oz of schwag is a committed amount. Don't smoke any of it or give it to a friend. Burn it.

That's it! If you are seriuos about wanting to stop and you have already made the choice, these steps should guarantee the finality of your choice. It may seem a bit drastic to smash a bong or burn good weed but something about that process is extrememly effective, and worth if if you want to quit. Show the universe that you are willing to make a sacrififce and good results will come from that offering.

NIKKA IS YOU CRASY?  :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway: :noway:

Just because you quit smoking in general doesn't mean you should destroy art! I own hundreds of dollars worth of glass pieces, and I cut back a huge amount. Yet they are still there for admiration and nostalgic purposes.

it's been one week since i've smoked marijuana. it would have been longer but my friend called me and told me that two girls he was with had weed and wanted to smoke it but had no pipe. they ended up taking my pipe home and now my friend cant get it back...those sluts.

marijuana made me tired and would end a great friday night early, and it cause a lot of money problems(since i light to buy in larger amounts).

good luck though.

sorry i haven't updated for awhile...all it took to clean me up and gain a bit of perspective on my life was 5 hits of 'cid. haha. that shit blows anything else away...i had my first true OEVs that weren't just slight patterning (i looked at the palm of my hand and "saw" the lsd-infused blood being pumped through my veins) so i guess i got what i wanted. next day i got rid of my pipe. the guy i dropped with, who was formerly a dealer, had the scare of his life that night thinking he'd been caught with the product and he's given up dealing. it's a good thing, too, because he's just starting at college this semester and does NOT need that shit on his mind.

so i guess we both owe quite a bit to one crazy, dead german chemist, herr hoffmann. danke schoen.

good riddance, weed.

wasnt there a hoffmann alive and well thread the other day? or am i just losing it?

Yeh I know exactly what you mean, weed is so bad for trying to socialise. Back in the day we used to get so baked we lost all inhibition but its nothing like that now. I have found after a few years of smoking I have come to completely rethink my use of weed.

Has anyone else noticed how the bad sides of weed increase with time and the good points decrease?

I suggest you slowly start drinking more and smoking less, make a smooth transition.

That's idiotic. Why replace one habit with a worse one?

hoffman is still alive.
