Tripping On Sobriety
    #2760790 - 06/03/04 04:48 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I guess you've never heard anyone say something like "damm dude, I'm sooo......sober right now..!" Well that's about what I've been telling myself these past couple of days.
Its been almost a month since I haven't smoked pot or done anything else, so all the THC is pretty much out of my body. I'm almost 18, and I haven't quit smokin since I was about 15.
This feeling is soo strange, I feel like being sober is just like another drug. Its kinda hard to describe, but its like if experiencing reality is just tripping in another way. I remember a friend of mine mumbling that everyone is actually really tripping when we were both on shrooms...i'm not sure if thats what he meant, but if it is then I understand him.

I don't know, strange stuff. Just wanted to share it and see if anyone kinda knows what I'm talkin about

Well I don't think I'm going to last more than 4 months without smoking, but its not like I am a different person, its just my perception of reality just seems...shifted maybe.
I guess your perception of reality does affect who you are, but its not like reality significantly changed for me or anything, I feel reality a little bit differently...I don't know

I always feel like my mind has lost it's "peripheral vision" when I'm not stoned. Don't know if that makes sense, but that's the best way I can describe it.

I used to smoke every single day for about a year. i stopped for 4 months..(still goin sober) and i find that my mind can think in alot more ways now. its hard to explain.

and when i smoke again. ill be stoned-as-shit, considering my tolerance level :bong: :stash: :thumbup:

its cool to not smoke for about 3 weeks or so..and then blaaazzee like hell. :smirk:

Ya its real cool, last time I did it, it made me trip balls; I was convinced that reality wasn't real, that it was all in my head, and that in some other dimension my conscience was placed in a glass jar along with billions of other glass jars  around me. Kinda like in the Matrix I guess. But it wasn't a good feeling, I was more like "Noooooo, it CAN'T be that, it CAN'T be true!!!"

I think I'm gonna try and trip on bud again in a month from now

I'll freely admit I smoke too much ... in 6 years, the longest I've gone without a smoke is a paltry 3 weeks. Most of the time it's been a more or less daily habit ...

And after all that time, it is starting to take its toll ... my short-term memory really is affected (last night my pal called and told me to meet him at a bar ... I hung up the phone and promptly forgot which bar he had said, forcing me to call back to ask...) ...

Sobriety beckons ... the periods of abstinence I've had have been marked with seemingly boundless energy (which is actually part of the reason I started smoking in the first place -- have always been pretty hyperactive and needed to chill out), the return of dreams and a waaaay easier time getting up in the morning, among other benefits.

My "line in the sand" when it comes to determining whether you're doing something too much is if it's keeping you from accomplishing your goals. Up until now I haven't had any trouble reaching my ambitions while still smoking like a champ ... but as life gets more challenging, I'll need to have all my facilities at the ready.

Plus, as echoed by previous posts, there's nothing like coming back from a 'vacation' and sparking that first jammer ... "Damn, that's the reason I started smoking in the first place!" ... it's also visible in my circle of friends. Smoking is just another run-of-the-mill thing and it's just not as much fun as it used to be ... I was reminded of this the other night when I blazed with a friend of mine who is an occasional smoker -- we had a blast and got all goofy like the first few times I tried it. With my stoner pals, we know how to 'keep our sh*t together' ... which actually makes it no different than any other night.

I already know I'll never fully quit ... but I want to recapture that special relationship I used to have with smoking ...

Actually, I think we're talking about the same kind of "trip on sobriety". And I agree with you, the chemicals that make us trip without any drugs are the serotonin neurotransmitters. I guess I'm just feeling strange right now because its been a long time since I haven't experienced this "natural trip"...it kinda reminds me of when I was a kid. And after all, life is a trip right?

Well see, from my point of view, since I'm talking about tripping on sobriety, then I guess that what makes me trip are the serotonin neurotransmitters. I guess they could be considered as some kind of natural drug.

I have no knowledge of what I'm speaking about, but if let's say a monkey's natural neurotransmitters are not serotonins, and if we injected these in his body so that they would get to his brain, wouldn't the monkey be having some kind of "human trip"?

I guess this wouldn't be physically possible, cuz monkey probably do not have serotonin receptors, but if it was what would happen to that monkey's conciousness?

I think of it like, instead of having my brain running on psilocin, it's running on serotonin, and I can enjoy that. I can look at trees blowing in the wind, and think, "wow, this is an clear state of mind, and it's beautiful." That's probably the main way psychedelics have positively influenced my everyday life.




So true.  It really does change your sober conciousness for good.  I am always looking around me, at nature and and life and just tripping myself out on how complex and beautiful this world is.

Ironically, psychedlics, especially shrooms, show you that there's more to life than drugs. :laugh:

Uhh... high is state of mind, tripping is a state of mind, sobriety is a state of mind. You label whats new to you as differant... that label is usually called "high"... thats what you are experienceing... a not so familiar state of conscious.

Sure, ok. Then I might have to reconsider what "sobriety" means, because the day after I stopped smokin, or even two weeks after, I was supposively in a "sober state of mind". But its only a month after I stopped that I felt this strange trippy feeling.
whatever... :shrug:

So true.

I dont know... I smoked hash for like two years (every day) and I quit for health reasons... but it took a few months to really get that wonderful feeling of bright sobriety again.
