Fear of Pot
    #347303 - 06/23/01 12:06 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I was reading blu's thread - "goddamit!" - and he described just what I've experienced: the happy days of pot-smoking transformed into Fear of Pot Smoking. "Acid used to be a great time but its gotten to the point where im absolutely terrified of even smoking weed now, much less take hits of acid..." In that same thread, Intox describes more or less the same experience: "My weed highs have never been the same after doing acid. Weed used to make me feel happy, now it makes me feel anxiety, and it's like a mini acid trip." This sea change in the experience of pot originally happened to me about 15 years ago, and The Fear slowly weaned me off dope except for a handful of occasions. Lately, however, I've been feeling depressed and unsettled in my life, unhappy and wanting to change -- but at the same time feeling too depressed to change, too enervated. I've tried SSRI's, etc., to little effect. Anyway, I've been reading the personal reports at Dr. Grinspoon's site, where a number of people discuss overcoming depression through marijuana use, so I've been thinking of giving that a try. Also, I been thinking of re-experiencing (after 20 years) the introspection and zest of a mushroom trip. Have also pondered whether I should try ecstacy for the first time (I read a trip report at erowid of a guy who sounds almost exactly like myself - early middle-age, long-term depression - who got a very good result from taking e, it apparently really turned things around for him depression-wise). My gameplan is to use some klonopin while smoking the weed. I've tried this combination once or twice in the past, and it really seemed to cut down the weed-related anxiety. But in the back of my head is The Fear. Any thoughts out there? Advice? It seems like a certain, relatively small percentage of potsmokers get The Fear (maybe triggered by another drug like acid). Has anyone experienced this, and gotten over it? If so, how did you get over it?

your problem is simple. youre smoking pot too much. you need to focus on putting your life on track, otherwise whenever you get high you will worry about your life. pot should be a break from your work and reality. not part of it.

madness never slows down, it only piles up.

Yeah, just focus on the things which you do from day to day (non drug related) and stop getting so caught up in your problems and dwelling on them. In my experience, pot isnt a good tool for helping with problems.
good luck

all i can suggest is dont do E, i've heard that after its over it makes you so amazingly depressed on top of how it physically harms you ... i also wouldnt do pot if i were you until you get out of the depression, otherwise you are going to get really depressed while high.

We're all mad here...

If you are seriously depressed, i suggest you go to therapy. Find a therapist you like and STAY with that person. I have had depression in the past and still battle with it sometimes. It is a disease that needs to be treated. You need someone who is versed in methods that will help you grow out of your depression.
As for the acid. Sometimes i think that acid actualy made me REALIZE i was depressed. But that's only my point of view.
I also suggest you do try mushrooms as they are helpful for depressed individuals. The molecular structure of it's active components is almost identical to serotonin: depression is a defficiency of serotonin.... peace and good luck.... you'll get there

Dude don't revolve you life around drugs or pot.... yes I smoke daily or even sometimes semi-daily when I'm bored.... I don't smoke a lot of weed.... hel a fim can can of buds lasts me a month smoking 1 to 2 times a day EVERY DAY. I smoke at night 2 hours before bed to kind of relax and unwind at the end of the day....
