Re: does anyone else here NOT smoke weed? [Re: nanananotehead]

I quit weed about a year ago. I have smoked since then don't get me wrong but I don't really smoke anymore. The times I have done it since was when I was enibriated mainly or just when I felt I was in a good situation. The main reason I had stopped was because it came to the point where it wasn't even enjoyable anymore, I would just do it because I felt I needed it. It made me ridiculously paranoid and a recluse. I used to abuse the herb in a ridiculous amount. I became extremely paranoid about everything even when there wasn't anything to worry about. It also contributed to a depreciation in my health. It combined with cigarettes destroyed my immune system. I would have a sinus infection/strep throat at least once a month. This could be attributed to the smoking as well as sharing pipes and joints with others. I do have to say I miss the good old days with it chilling with my friends and whatnot, but when it became not fun and made me sick it had to go. However I hope to engage in its goodness again one day. Until now I only do it if I am already drunk, that way it usually doesn't make me paranoid, or if I'm just straight I won't smoke too much at one sitting. That was probably the real problem, just smoking too much at a time all the time.

I smoked everyday at least 3+ times a day for 2 and a half years. It wore thin after I started getting anxiety attacks and I wasn't enjoying it anymore; just something to do when bored.
As of December 27th 2003 I quit and don't miss it at all

On December 27 2002 I had a heart attack which, among other things, made me end my cannabis years.

12 years.. five kilos.. it had been great, but in hindsight it had become rather bland, i can now exactly recall how it felt and guess what: i really didnt miss it that much.
What I did miss was a big hole in my wallet, which I partly remedied by becoming longterm contributor to a few charities which in fact makes me feel quite good too.

My Cannabis Years.. it was great while it lasted but they are over and thats just ok in a completely relaxed way.
Yup, I'd do it again, but would've quit even without the 4 AM ICU wake-up call.

I love my weed, but I've not smoked in 3-4 months, not by choice. It's hard to find 'round here if you don't know the right people.

I've become pretty fond of marijuana, not a burn, and not a sketch... I love the plant. But if you're not liking the high from it, then there's no shame in quitting. There's been times when I've had to lay off the pot for a while and things were fine.

Hope that quitting works out for ya. :thumbup:

Heavy cannabis use has been linked to strokes in the UK and, funnily enough, I had a blood clot at the age of 26 which could have either paralized or killed me.

I too suffered from EXTREME lethargy/anxiety/paranoia with the damn stuff and no longer smoke it.

Can't say I miss it at all.

i have been abstaining from the canabis herb almost entirely for the last 4 years.

not every one ho partakes of the herb will choose to do so always. some times it will tell you it is not the right time to use it. this is the way of all teaching plants. if you choose to listen to it you may be happier. if you choose not to believe it that way, you will find another way to see it.

I hear ya.

For the past 3 years I don't think I've gone a day sober. Even just now I finished smoking a few bowls 15 minutes ago. At this point I regard pot as something I need to get me through the day, to occupy my mind with a haze so I can enjoy my evening. But, I have no choice to quit in less than two weeks as I'm moving and my finances will not be able to support a pot addiction. I'm actually kind of looking foward to being sober since the past few years are kinda hazey. That's all I ever do these days is get stoned and hit the McDonald's drive-thru afterwards, I ought to grow a garden, write some poetry and stuff once I get sober.  :heart:

Whats wrong with being sober and experiencing life in its most pure form?

Most weed smokers I see seem addicted psycologicly.

When they watch a movie they "need" it. Before they go to bed they "need some" After a meal they "need" some. When socialising, they "need some" When they want to forget something they "need it."

Bike riding, hikes, camping and so on are just not as fun unless they are inebriated, high, buzzed, stoned, whatever you want to describe it.

Not only that. I know that weed is pretty much a harmless drug. But heres what isnt harmless:
Suspicion, paranoia, sneakyness, tip-toeing around, lying, distrust, resentment, conflicts, confusion, guilt, loss of money, criminal eliments, discrimination, productivity loss, withdrawl, domestic issues, relationship issues, stereotyping, ignorance, and the list goes on. All of those things are either directly or indirectly derived from marijuana and drug use...



I used for a while, and find that coping by smoking, drinking, or whatever, is up to you, but just isnt worth it to me personaly.

Good for you with quitting, and for those who quit, and I would recomend quitting for anyone who has ever thaught about it.

MARIJUANAVILLE

by Switchblade Symphony




...Do another one here
This is my version of Jimmy Buffet?s Marguaretaville
Little different thought we had to bring it up in to the 90?5
Its now called marijuanaville and it goes a little like this




Rollin my homegrown
smoking a big bone
look at the ganja covered with oil
Using my tweezers
Got pot in the freezer
Made a new pipe out of aluminum foil

[Chorus]
Wastin away again in marijuanaville
Searchin for my roach clip on a rope
Some people claim that there is a woman to blame
but I know
that its all this damn dope

Don?t know the reason, stayed here all season
Maybe that Thai stick was a way bit too strong
But I got a real beauty
a Colombian doobie
Soon i'll be up on my way alone

[Chorus]
Wastin away again in marijuanaville
Searchin for my roach clip on a rope
Some people claim that there is a woman to blame
but I know
that its all this damn dope

I blew out my bong pipe
Ran out of bud light
But I found me some stash I had hidden at home
I put it into a blender
and soon it will render
These little fudge brownies that help me get stoned

Wastin away again in marijuanaville
Searchin for my roach clip on a rope
Some people claim that there is a woman to blame
but I know
that its all this damn dope

Some people claim that I sound like Dillon when I?m stoned
but I knooow
that its all this damn dope



_______________________________________________________________

I must say: Weed is pretty involving!
It's also evolving.. Or should i say devolving?

Back in the day you got high with friends, you passed the dutchie (I'm Dutch lol) and shared it between eachother. And smoking alone, hey, fine too.

The new trend however is that kids -start smoking it alone- no peer group, just a punch in the head. Passing a joint? GROSS!
Somehow the concept of friendship seems shallowing too. The 1960s Revolution spawned a Social Revolution but the 90s Revolution well.. Lessay the tide is turning.

Here in Holland there are voices to classify some varieties of grass "hard Drugs" because they are that strong.

Well thats BS! The Hydrogen Bomb is much more common then when the 80s turned 90s (when I started) but if i hear veteran stories and compare charts some ole '60s weeds pack a lot of THC too.
Thats the Christian Right being Wrong again.

I have not met a -true- weed addict. But.. there ARE withdrawal symptoms and indeed as pointed out, many alternate fresh air with ganja tokes, like i did in the past for quite some time.

There was a time I -felt- genuinely addicted, the need for weed.. But it was just that i lived in Marijuanaville and was a bit insecure about leaving it.

I also discovered that if you consistently smoke half-sized joints (when on a dayly regimen) within a week you get every bit as high off that half amount, friends noticed it too but they (not too brightly) insisted on using much money on the same high because they didnt want to become high but HIGHER, and a few days of temperance didnt fit their plan. BAM! BAM! BAM! frightening, that really got me thinking and eventually them too.

What --IS-- that mentality? I see it alot here on the Shroomery too. My life blew just as hard :blush: or even more so but I never felt the need to cram myself full of drugs, but rather lay a good foundation and build it on there with your mind!.

The best social joints have been on small amounts. One joint too much and you end up with a room full of zombies.

Also, pay close attention now:
no matter how small the joint is, the rest of the day just isn't the same as for memory, motivation, energylevel, mood etc.
Friends were astonished at it but you have to sleep even a small morning joint off, which means in a way it has a hangover to it! Check this out! If you pay attention, its pretty obvious!

Cannabis can give you a good contemplative state combining sedation, euphoria and intensified thought processes, but now i focus online after 1 1/2 weedless year I hear a lot of anxiety and paranoia stories and some seem to linger for long after quitting..


Like i said before, some time ago:

Harmless? No. Not harmless.
Relatively harmless, but thats a whole different ballgame.

Pot makes me confused, tired. Sometimes, I vomit off it.
Funny, it's all about your own body and its reaction. I smoke very rarely.
Now booze, well, that's a totally different ball of sex wax;;;;
