Anyone else take psychedelics and not weed?
    #3846085 - 02/28/05 12:16 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I enjoy the odd smoke but I generally regard the high as being quite useless when compared to the likes of mushrooms.
I mean I don't really get any thing out of it worthwhile, whereas shrooms can amaze me and show me something new everytime.
Being stoned tends to be alot more boring.

Anyone agree?

When used recreationally, yeah I would agree with you. Although sometimes it can relieve boredom. Sometimes.

However when I use it alone, I find it to be a wonderful tool for introspection and meditation.

Pot is one of my many passions.  I'll ingest it almost any time, anywhere, and any way I can - excepting dangerous situations such as operating heavy machinery - simply for the love of it...  I use recreationally as well as spiritually, and most certainly ritualistically.

But it is by no means for everyone!  There are plenty of people who don't like pot, for one reason or another, and that is perfectly A-OK with me - so long as they aren't trying to convince me NOT to like pot.  Then I get just as wound up as I do when Christians try to Save me :rolleyes:

For me; :heart: :sun:

For you; :spliff: :projectile:

:tongue:

OHMYGOSH! Okay, quickly, before it's too late, repeat after me: JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, PRAISE JESUS!

Hehe, I think I'm having too much fun with coca tea.

But anyways, yeah pot used to be amazing for me, but after one or two bad psychedelic experiences when I smoke it all I feel is paranoia. However I'm starting to deal with it through meditation and reflection, and it is gradually improving. I think I'm just fighting it.

I HAVE ACCEPTED HIM INTO MY HEART!  Do I get my free pass into heaven now? k, thanks.

:tongue:

I think the paranoia is always there, it's just a matter of dealing with it.  Deal with it badly, and you'll get stuck in a loop, much like a thought-loop on mushrooms or acid, and spiral out into paranoia land - and that's no fun for anyone.  Whenever I start to get paranoid, I like to think of it as suggestions to keep me safe, take heed, and move on.

For example, when I finally scored some weed in this godforsaken place many months ago, the first few times I smoked, you could say I was *very* paranoid.  I smoked a joint on the porch where I used to smoke cigarettes, and it was good.  I came inside, chilled...  Then I started wondering, "Oh man, I hope there's no embers that could catch fire on that wood porch", probably because this house has had a history of fire damage...  Dealing with that was fairly simple - I just looked out on the porch through the window in the door, saw nothing burning.  Cool.  Sit for a bit longer.  "But what if, what if it is burning NOW?".  Well, damn, fine, so I went outside and checked it out, nothing no where, it was all good.  So I chilled and the next time I thought "but I don't want to start a fire..." I immediately thought, "Oh shut up, I already checked on it twice, nothing is going to happen".  And boom, it was done, didn't bother me again.  Still have a porch, too, so that's good :stoned: .

Obviously, it is not always so easy to quantify and deal with the paranoia, but that is just one way that I have found works for me in certain situations.  If it's a less tangible paranoia, I just plain put it out of my mind - which takes a bit of work, but it can be done.

Good luck :sun:

Every time I end up smoking weed I have an alright time, but I really don't crave it ever. If my roommate stopped smoking pot I'd probably never smoke pot again. It's really pretty low on my list of priorities. I still want to try Blue Water Lily and Sacred Lotus though. And it's been a while since I've hit some Salvia. Feelin like I want to try that again.

But pot...nah. Not really.

Yeah, didn't the Church do exactly that during the middle ages? Just hand out sheets of paper to those who donated money saying that they would get to heaven?

Weed seems to be just an enjoyable pastime for most.

Yeah weed is like a hobby for all my friends. It's just completely taken for granted. "Smoking? yeah so what...old news". It's no longer..cherished..so I'm done with it.

I don't like weed but love the psychedelics. I'd still smoke it with a group of friends who get together to get wasted.

I almost never smoke weed, but I try to do entheogens in moderation. The reason I don't like weed is most of the people (that I know) do it just to be cool and give themselves a "stoner" image.

I know some people do it for good reasons (menstral cramps for example) or in moderation as a treat. I think if more people took this aproach weed might one day be legalized everywhere.

I smoked pot heavily for years, and was a total doper - now im rather put off by stoners (not that i dont have my own off putting interests.) however, i find it makes me paranoid and anxious and generally uncomfortable.. sometimes i like to smoke alone but it takes away my dreams.

Marijuana contributes to positive philosophical mindstates, but i find it generally unaccessible... i cant retain ideas, or get them down fast enough to build off them - its like grabbing neat ideas out of thin air as fast as you can. I find dreaming to be a more memorable philosophical experience...

I love weed. I find that the perspective it gives me, when used in moderation, is like a breath of fresh air. The change from sobriety really helps me look at different aspects of my life, among multitudes of other things, in different ways.
However, I did "abuse" it for a long while but now its more of a couple days out of the week thing instead of an everyday thing, and I really appreciate it more than ever.
