i smoke weed everyday usually at least a couple times a day. i smoke good ass herb from an average sized bowl, i stopped cleaing it for the most part partly because I like ( or think) to get extra high from all the resin caked on there. i go for months smoking and when i stop its usually for like a week or two. besides burning a hole in my wallet ... am i gonna develop some sort of lung cancer or would i have to go on smoking like this for many more years? i do work out a couple times a week, jog, stretch , do yoga, and shit like that.
ive thought about giving up smoking forever but you see, i got in a bad car accident a few years back and my intestines got all fucked up. (they had to cut out sections of my colon and sew it back together) Because of my accident my stomach feels shitty a lot ( not really bad, just usually some slight discomfort caused by gas), especially when i have my first meal of the day. also when i dont smoke weed i have trouble falling asleep... usually because im not really that tired and I dont sleep that comfortably because of all my surgeries ive been through ( had an abdominal hernia too as a result of my accident so instead of a big muscle wall going across 1 side of my stomach area theres a big patch of gortex rubber drilled into various parts of my bones).
also if the weed isnt so much to worry about my lungs, i have to sleep on my back ( uncomfortable) or i will get GERD (that heartburn type shit i forget what GERD stands for) which is probably mostly caused by my smoking. but again id rather smoke then put up with the intestinal discomfort i get almost daily. what do you all think?
Quote: eligal said: yea i agree, you should have a doc diagnose it. also, if smoking weed takes away the pain, then so be it.
ps. holy shit man!! that sounds horrible!! what happened??!!
was in the backseat of a car that this guy was driving (girlfriends brother), he was doing 70-80 in a 30 mph zone, swerved to avoid a car after turning a corner and lost control. hit a tree. It was in a little hatchback ( VW golf 2003) . i had to be airlifted by helicopter to jackson memorial hospital, the entire time i didnt lose consciousness .bystanders helped drag me out the broken back window and I laid on the floor and felt blood coming from my abdomen and pretty much thought i was going to die.
i broke my collarbone, all the ribs on my left side, and got perforations in parts of my intestines and the abdominal hernia developed like months later as a result . also because of the surgeries there was scarring on the inside of me which at one point pinched and blocked my intestinal tract, had to go to the hospital after a couple days of vomiting everything i ingested and they realized i had the blockage.
i was in the backseat with my gf at the time , and a couple months after the accident she broke up with me. it sucked balls.
all is good now except for the occasional discomfort which weed pretty much eliminates, not to mention I've learned some extremely important life lessons as a result of the accident and feel more
either that or try making firecrackers. Smoking weed is way worse for your lungs than most heads will say, especially if you do it every day.... but that doesn't necessarily mean it will kill you.
for me if i go a while without smoking, smoking something like a bong rip or two actually helps my lungs a lot.... but if i do it daily it messes them up pretty bad. i'm actually starting to worry a lot that this chest pain i have is from a bad or messed up lung, because it's like i don't breathe in as much air in the area where my chest hurts as it does on the side of my chest where it doesn't hurt.
so do be careful, smoke is smoke and even if THC is healthy for you, it isn't good for you in smoke form.
