WEED

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Im 19 and ive been smoking weed for 5 years now. Ive been smoking non stop every day for the past 3 years. I used to smoke bongs all the time (even in the mornings before college) but now I just stick to joints. I cant even remember the last time i went a day without being stoned. I take e's on average every 2nd weekend. The point is, my head is full of shite 24/7 and i lack ambition. Ive put on about 4 stone in the last 6 months due to laziness and greed of munchies. What should i do? i don't want to give up my after work spliff, even though it does make me a bit paranoid. it sounds daft, but im fucked up man. i don't want to get councilling or nothin. what should i do?

    Basically you need to stop being controlled by weed. You should always make sure you are the one in control.

    If I were you I'd try and cut down a little, join a gym, go swimming, do something to loose the weight. You'll find once you are busy doing something else you wont have the time to smoke as much.

    Good luck!

    miss_kitty there are a lot of people like that, hehe including me.


    I dont feel so badly about it (yet?). ive been smoking like that for 4 years, started smoking at 12. I cant remember that last time i wasnt stoned. Im packing the bong right now, getting ready for work.

    You sound a lot like me J1mbo. Jimbo is also my best friends name, hehe weird resemblences. I dont lack ambition, I have a successful job in Web Development, which ive been doing for 2 years now. Cant deny that im lazy because i love the computer too much and being stoned at the same time goes all too well. I take e's whenever i can get em, which isnt much, something like once every 2 months, but i like it that way.

    I do want to cut down some on weed though because it takes too much to get high nowadays and therefore more expensive. My short term memory is pretty fucked too <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> which is another reason i need to cut down. But I would not go to a counselor for this because it just seems dumb to me. I dont see it as a huge problem because i know if i had to i could quit, i probably could just not cold-turkey, would have to do it slowly, i just recently quit smoking cigs after 3 years.

    i lived exactley like that for two years solid, but in the end i got bored, its difficult at times to motivate yourself to do other things because a) your too stoned to bother b) you can't imagine anything else could be as satisfying <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> the unfortunate thing is only a complete lifestyle change will solve it <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> i now work, go out alot, play football, just do stuff <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> but i do all of this in tandem with consuming fairly vast amounts of weed and regular pills, but by gettin into the routine of doing things they now compliment not conflict <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> i also have breaks from weed of about a week once in a while, you'll be amazed how much you get done in such weeks, don't plan them, thats testing will power, just do spur of the moment weeks, and the only way is not to buy the drugs if you have them you'll take them <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> But at the end of the day, you'll find your current cycle of doing nothing will turn into bordem and you'll go in search of a better more active living <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I was gonna clean my room until I got high
    I gonna get up and find the broom but then I got high
    my room is still messed up and I know why
    cause I got high [repeat 3X]

    I was gonna go to class before I got high
    I coulda cheated and I coulda passed but I got high
    I am taking it next semester and I know why
    cause I got high [repeat 3X]

    I was gonna go to work but then I got high
    I just got a new promotion but I got high
    now I'm selling dope and I know why
    cause I got high [repeat 3X]

    I was gonna go to court before I got high
    I was gonna pay my child support but then I got high
    they took my whole paycheck and I know why
    cause I got high [repeat 3X]

    I wasnt gonna run from the cops but I was high
    I was gonna pull right over and stop but I was high
    Now I am a paraplegic - because I got high

    I was gonna pay my car note until I got high
    I was gonna gamble on the boat but then I got high
    now the tow truck is pulling away and I know why
    because I got high [repeat 3X]

    I was gonna make love to you but then I got high
    I was gonna eat yo pussy too but then I got high
    now I'm jacking off and I know why

    I messed up my entire life because I got high
    I lost my kids and wife because I got high
    now I'm sleeping on the sidewalk and I know why cause I got high [repeat 3X]

    I'm gonna stop singing this song because I'm high
    I'm singing this whole thing wrong because I'm high
    and if I dont sell one copy I know why
    cause I'm high [repeat 3X]

    good idea eb. Its almost unthinkable for me to quit smoking for a week.. I cant even envision it. But to be honest if i quit for a week the main joy in it would probably be how high i would be when i start back up again. It would only take one hit to get a good buzz... but then maybe i'll like it that way and smoke once a week (ya right) <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    well it doesn't really work like that, but a week of reminds you of the plus sides of not smoking, getting stuff done can be very satisfying, you'll still smoke shit loads BUT you may find a small break more appealing <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
