Using weed as a "reward"
    #3320431 - 11/04/04 05:26 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

To moderate my weed use, I have decided to use the advice given by many people here and treat it as a "reward."

That way I'll only smoke if I've earned it.

Like yesterday, I had stayed up all night and was mega-tired, so I was considering skipping my classes. But then I thought, "Wait...you have to go." And my alter-ego thought back, "But I don't want to." And so I offered it a temptation: "If you go, you can smoke some weed when you get home."

And then all of a sudden, I wanted to go. So I went and then when I came home I gave myself my "reward."

Does anyone use weed this way and do you think this is a viable way of moderating weed usage?

if you can stick to it i'm sure it's a very good way to moderate yourself..

i don't think i could stick to it. i'd just say 'ah fuck it - you can go to class high!'



and then i would :grin:

as soon as I finish a paper, I celebrate with a fat bowl. Its a great strategy, operant conditioning really works, even when you do it to yourself.

I've tried doing that, but I find I don't really need to.

Most of the time certain situations prevent me from being able to smoke weed. So basically I smoke whenever I can, which turns out to be 2 or 3 times a week, sometimes once a week, or sometimes 4 times a week (or well, this is what has been happening recently). I've also found my tolerence isn't going up, and the price is so small it doesn't even really matter.

Yep! It worked for me! You retain things better anyway if you wait and smoke when the jobs finished. :laugh:

I used to do the same kinda thing, but I found that I tended to rush the thing I was doing towards the end so I could smoke faster  :rolleyes:

I usually try to only smoke at night, for me it seems my high is better the longer I've been sober so I try not to be baked 24/7.. it is tempting sometimes though.

I'm a very good person.  I can tell because of how often I reward myself.  :smirk:

Moderation seems to be the key. I used to smoke 24/7 but you start to not get as high, and your not as high for as long. Anytime you try to better yourself and take care of your body its a good thing. It feels good when you start to get your insperation back on a natural level.

I tried using weed as a reward for myself.. worked for a few days and then I figured if I have to earn the weed I'll just drink beer and give the weed up. :lol:  Beer's worse, just keep smoking whenever you get the urge. :thumbup:

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

i think you overestimate what type of completed activity a hardcore stoner might view as in need of a "reward"--

getting outta bed for that first piss of the morning just may merit a gravity bong rip to some people.

Marijuana for me is used as reward and incentive.  When i have the day off we smoke in social situations.

I get up befor class cuz ill take a puff of kif to get me motviated.  After work ill know ill smoke bongs or whatever, somthing to look forward too.  After i finish writting my paper ill get hgih so ill work to finish my paper.

I do not see marijuana interfearing in my daily life and i smoke it everyday so, ill smoke it everyday :smile:.  I do good in school, go to work and have a fairly good social life.

I pretty much only use weed as a reward now, after years of smoking (unless I'm tripping), otherwise I won't get shit done. I'll set a decent goal or project, when I attain it, get a bag. A year ago I'd smoke a quarter in a day and be left unsatisified. Now a small bowl to my head is all it takes and I'm riiipped.
