Im losin friends to weed.
    #3883192 - 03/07/05 05:20 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Most of my good friends are constantly smoking weed. Dont get me wrong, I enjoy it most of the time, but it's liek they dont want to hang out if theres no weed smoking going on.

ITs a total bummer, and they wouldnt listen if I said hey guys i think your doin it too much.

And no getting new friends isnt an option because Im in highschool and ya cant just skip to another group of friends. Sometimes I feel just left out though.

Love 'em for who they are. If you feel like you're getting distanced from them then accept it as best as possible and be open to meeting other types of people. Introduce yourself to someone at the gym or start talking with someone on your way to class. Make friends wherever you go and don't box yourself in.

I had "friend" problems because of weed myself.

The longer my friends and I smoked, the more I noticed that weed started to become the center of our existences and friendships. It got to the point where the weed was more important than the presence of "friends". When people didn't have any weed, other people didn't want to hang out with them. It kind of sucked.

Also, I live in an area that has never once had enough of a supply of marijuana to satisfy demand. This means that there is a lot of shitty weed and overpriced decent weed floating around. People are constantly pinching out of bags that they get for their "friends". It is disgusting. It's almost like they are hooked on crack or something. They are all lazy and they don't do anything. They will be stuck in my little town forever and will never do anything with their lives. I have moved on from that lifestyle. I have grown up.

I think weed is lame. I realize that 99.9% of the people on this site smoke it, but I personally hate the shit. I haven't smoked in years.

Weed was once such a big part of my life I couldn't possibly imagine living without. Then I outgrew it and quit smoking. Tried it a couple years later with some old stoner friends from high school and realized 1) People that sit around and smoke weed in the same small town go nowhere fast and 2) Weed isn't worth the money, I wouldn't smoke it if it was free. What's the big deal with smoking herb? It's not an enjoyable experience if you ask me. Different people's chemistry dictates how enjoyable different drugs are to them I suppose.

Anyways my point is this: Get away from those people and the weed culture altogether if it's causing you more strife then it's worth. You'll move on and peer back at your old self from the other side--it will be like looking at a different life, one that you most likely will be glad you're not living anymore.

Good luck

p.s. The best friends I've made in life were not met through any drug related culture. But looking back on the friends I had during the stoner years, well, they couldn't possibly be any further from true, real friends.

AMEN to that.

It's the most addictive drug IMO and I've used just about every mind bending substance in vast quantaties over the years (15 in total) apart from heroin, pcp & methamphetamine.

Yeah I hear ya.

The street mentality is to smoke weed all day everyday and before long they're smokin it through pipes ,all day, like its crack.  Its amuzing watching people cold turkey from weed, yes cold turkey from weed is possible heh.

I've lost most of my friends to weed and even the ones that stopped tripped out and it all went crazy.  Its hard to know who or what 'friends' really are, sometimes.

Theres many a weed bum in my town.

This one dude has to have weed all the time and when he's getting low he worries about getting more and when he worries, he smokes harder and harder...  He's gonna die young. :dead:

This is like exactly my situation. At one point during all of this, I kind of snapped out of, and looked back and saw how lame it was. But I can't really hang with any other group of kids, and I want them to get the picture.

Tonight I tried to get them to do somehting different and they were up for it except they wanted to smoke before whatever it was that we did.

And one of my friends just always worries about if theres gonna be enough for the weekend or when hes buying another eighth.

its a sad situation

Ive lost a very dear friend to weed. It got so bad that I hit him once when he would NOT stop trying to make me do hit it. I mean, Im not totally against it, but as a kid who needs to be just getting through school and getting his shit together, you just cant really do that shit. I once went to his house for his birthday and I got there shortly before his parents busted him for being high off his ass.

It gets to the point when they're A.)- A risk to be around. B.) Not even acting like themselves ever. I have seen people be totally consumed by it, doing it every chance they got. It just gets too rediculous to deal with. I feel ya man.

I have to admit that am have a great fondness for the great herb, but I know exactly what everyone is saying. About losing friends, yeah its happend to me too. I know lots of peeps in my town that appear to be going nowhere, they smoke alot, sell alot, go to the bars alot, that's about it actually. I used to smoke alot like them, waste the high on trivial and worthless things. But like alot of people are saying, "I grew out of that".

Im now 22 and actually only have two friends, but they are the best kind. We smoke herb together, but we all realize that we need to take that anti-motivational syndrome away from pot smokers, or at least ourselves  :smile:

We make sure that when we smoke, we have a purpose, sometimes we go for a walk and talk about life, jump on the bikes and go for a ride, go into the bush and build some trails. But please dont think that I need to smoke to have fun doing these things, cause I dont, its just that I find great value in the abilities that the herb gives me. It opens our minds to talk and theorize, when riding I find that a great focus is gained, a trance if you will. When we smoke and build trails we have great creativity for creating abstract and innovative stunts and jumps :rockon:

I think that moderation and focus are the key things here, just dont let it become the center of your life, just a part :smile:

yeah, it's funny how so many people that smoke weed are in denial of it's high potential for a pretty strong addiction to it.

I knew a girl who became so attached to the weed, that she became what is known as a "weed whore".  Basically she would flirt and whore around until she found a dealer who would give her weed for sex.  Then when that dealer found out what her motivations were, he kicked her out the front door and she moved on to the next poor shmo.  Apperently she doesn't know when enough is enough, last I heard she was in rehab for coke.  Some people just can't handle their shit.

Damn people, this sounds like some freevibe.com shit. No one forces you to smoke weed. Let's not forget how dangerous alcohol and ciggs are!

Make new friends if you dont like the ones you have now.  If marijuana puts you in a bad position dont smoke it.

I smoke pot when i have time to kill.  If i got some time to blow on video games, ill puff a little bit and i always get high at the end of the day.  Just feels so rewarding to get stoned after hard day work and/or school.  Gives me somthing to look forward too.

Remember moderation is key, but i smoke pot everydayl :smile:.

real friends remain through the years through all of life phases. call em up again in the future. do other things. there are many paths. as many as people. hope these cliches help. plus it's better than losing them to heroin. look on the bright side of things.

yes, i am amazed at all the weed-bashing going on here.

these people you speak of that just smoke weed all day, and that takes preference over anything else, you remove weed from the equation, and chances are you will get the same effect, only weed has been replaced by something else.

weed isn't any more addictive than masturbation or video games..... sure you might get some withdrawal if you are a daily smoker and you do it multiple times per day for a while.....

but for real, it's just a time filler... people do it because it feels good, and they form a habit, and they get a mental addiction.

But that's nothing to blame weed for really..... it's just the nature of being human. Do what feels good as much as you can.
