I've personally never tried it, but i know a lot of people who have, and a lot of my close friends do. The reason i don't smoke is because I see them when their high, and they just become the most annoying people. One girl i know, never wanted to touch the stuff, she tried it, now she smokes it all the time and is just so fucking annoying, all she does is say "I love weed" over and over again. Also I don't care what anyone says, that shit turns a lot of people just fucking stupid, they loose a lot of their long term memory and a lot of people become anxious mother fucker.

Getting a high, is not required to enjoy yourself.

Why would I change who I am?
To fit in...?
...with other people who do drugs?

I used to smoke pot a long time ago.... but I grew out of it.

I realized that the people who do drugs all the time let it take over their life.

Pretty soon they are asking people left and right.... do you do this?
Why don't you do this its fun... "Dude I was high on this yesterday and..."

No thanks.... its sad

Take weed for example...

Not a day goes by where some pothead douchebag posts on the forums... OMG "weed this" or "pot that"

People who smoke weed almost need to search out more people that smoke in order to make themselves feel better about it. They have to label themselves in their signature or in their username or anywhere they can think of.... they try and send a message "Hey I'm a pot smoker... and I advertise it so you can be my pot smoker friend"

They even have a club here on Newgrounds. Its sad really.

Doing drugs and/or smoking pot is not an activity in itself.
You do whatever drug it is... AND then you go out and do something, to make your experience better.

If you are a loser.... you end up using it as a calling card to make friends...
Hey I smoke pot... I'm cool.

No you aren't.

I don't need to alter who I am to have a good time..... I don't need to "get stupid" in order to impress others or make new friends.

I don't need to get high for any reason.

So why would I?

Its illegal.
Its a waste of money.
It jeopardizes your ability to get a decent job.

Oh I know, but the fact that he smoked got him involved with the wrong kind of people, which lead to him getting shitfaced at parties and being arrested, getting pressured into shoplifting booze, etc. I realize it's his own fault, but if he'd never started smoking in the first place, he'd still be fine.

People who go "There's nothing wrong with it, it doesn't hurt you," apparently don't realize that just because it doesn't cause medical damage doesn't mean it's not harmful.

Whether your brother had started smoking or not, it sounds like he was bound to fail regardless. Sounds like you're just playing the blame game and Marijuana is the easiest target.

He and I were raised the same way and taught the same values, the difference is that he had friends who started smoking because their mom was an enabler and he got caught up in it.

Also, it's no fucking wonder if he started when he was in 8th grade. Just a couple years too young to be involved in that shit.

Probably, but about 75% of the people I go to school with started when they were younger than him. He actually didn't get in too much legal trouble before the past 2 years, but ever since he's started he's fought with our parents constantly.

I used to smoke daily, from October to 31st of December, so 3 full monts - Every day.
I got sick of it, it gets booring.
No it's not harmfull, No I'm not retarded.

You make your own choices, its up to you to decide if you are going to smoke or not.

I can't smoke due to asthma. I don't see the point in getting high because I could instead use the money to buy video games which provide joy for a longer period of time.

I don't care whether people do it or not as long as they don't talk to me about stupid shit.

Who knows, maybe in your situation it was indeed the drugs that changed him; in which case I say sorry dude, your bro couldn't think for himself and do what he needed to have a successful life.

You look like you're fine though, so live on. I too have a brother who got involved with this stuff around the same age as your brother if not a yearish sooner. It ruined him even more, but my perspective is my brother was bound to fail regardless of what he did and whether he used drugs or not. This is where my points come from when I criticize you.

Maybe your brother could have been a decent person without them.

Define "a lot of people."

I'm not saying they HAVE to enjoy it, I'm asking why don't you? As in, what is the reasoning behind why you do not experiment with drugs and what do you believe these drugs do to a person?

Marijuana has been proven to help a lot with anxiety so I'm confused as to how it causes it in some people but I believe that is just human chemistry, not everyone reacts the same to the same thing.
Marijuana has been proved to cause a lot of anxiety, so what do you want to say to that? I saw a 'substance misuse worker' for a few months, I think she knows it more than you.

She probably does know a lot about it, but look at her job title. How much of the research she's done do you think is biased? I'm not trying to disagree here, actually, I don't doubt that in some people (or even "a lot") get anxiety from smoking. It's not uncommon, but you make it sound like they'll have anxiety for the rest of their lives just for smoking a joint. That is not the case.

I think it's fine you smoke it, I'm pro legalisation, but I fucking hate you people who are insistent that it's fine for everyone. It's not. I totally wish it was, I miss getting high so so much but I got such bad anxieties I was panicking I was dying/having a stroke/had blood clots all the time. It's only gotten better since I stopped smoking it.

I hope you're not grouping me in with the "insistent" people, because that's not what I'm trying to come off as. I'm just trying to say some people can handle it, some people can't. I only care about the reasoning behind using drugs or not.

P.S. by a lot of people he's not giving out percentages, he's just saying a lot of people which is totally true.

Yes, and by that it would be accurate to say "Hitler didn't kill very many people." which is totally true when you look at the population of the world.

The only reason I am high on one substance or another all the fucking time is because I can't be arsed to seek out said substances. I know it'll probably kill my gains, but to be honest I'm caring less and less about my muscles these days.

I really want to get high near a sketchpad, and see what happens. Sure, it'd be stupid, but as an experiment, right?

All the same, even if I had free access to drugs I probably wouldn't use them outside a few experiments, because I can't work at being an artist or whatever if I'm too busy seeing unicorns. Or whatever it is those stoners do.

She was a really sound woman, had only stopped smoking it about 5 years ago and she's had the job for 20 years. No I totally don't believe that's what'll happen, but I know that certain people just don't mix with it well and it can really linger. Anxiety and worry feed anxiety and worry which fuels panic. It's really scary man.

I'm actually really glad that a person like that holds that position, then. Too many times have I been met with biased opinions and fake facts from people put into position just to make you feel weird or bad about what you're doing. Most of them have never even tried the stuff they're talking to you about and I'm really not about to listen to anyone with no experience tell me about it you know?

So that's really good you got someone like that.

I know how anxiety is, diagnosed like a madcat, most of you will probably think it's lame but one of the main reasons I use marijuana is to STOP my panic attacks and to SLOW my mind down because it runs at 250% speed all the time and makes me feel like shit when I can't think straight. Marijuana actually slows it down to a speed I can handle and enjoy and be more laid back and less stressed about all the shit that goes wrong in my life.

Sucks that some people get anxious FROM smoking, I just have anxiety in general and Marijuana stops it for me.

I wouldn't smoke just to draw, it might make it a little more fun but I'm not sure if it'll really help your creativity. For me and my music, it helps a bunch with creation so I would assume it may have an effect but weed isn't going to make you see anything or hallucinate.

If you want to see some really interesting shit, take some psychedelics and grab your sketchpad. That's where all the real funky shit comes from.

The only drug I've ever had that does "the hard full on pop out of the walls and walk around me and talk to me in foreign languages" is DMT. If you ever take that, be prepared for a mindfuck. You'll see stuff you thought was impossible, and when you come out of it you better grab a sketch pad fast because you won't remember it too clearly after a few minutes pass. It's the same drug that makes you dream at night and what is released when you die.

I've smoked marijuana for a long time and quit a bit over a year ago because it became a big waste of money, and I enjoy being sober more than I do being stoned.

I smoke cigarettes, because I am hopelessly addicted.


Yeah, whatever.

I used to smoke every day for years and then eventually I grew out of it. Nothing about it really appeals to me, since I just get retarded and lazy. I don't find it harmful and think it's laughable when people say it can hinder more than help, like the guy a few posts up who claims he stays away for his "athleticism." Ever heard of Nick Diaz? Yeah, I guess not.

I tried psychedelics for a while and it was an interesting experience, but I like my sanity.

My preference is alcohol, and the only drugs I do are the ones that make you feel more alert and happier. They are way more dangerous than the natural drugs like weed or shrooms, but they're also more fun.

I smoke weed at least 3 times a week, more if possible. I believe weed is almost harmless, but not completely unless you're vaporizing/eating it.

I love psychedelics, but it's very rare that I can actually obtain them.

I don't smoke. Have I? Of course I have. It's boring and a waste of time.

As for psychedelics, no, I haven't tried them. Yet. I'm wondering if my stomach could actually handle eating some of that stuff though, I've got stomach issues.

Ingesting shrooms can cause something trippers call "gutrot."

There are other ways to take them, you can make an herbal blend tea with the psilocybin still active by boiling them in water, straining, and then drinking it.

You can even eat chocolate candies with psilocybin still active inside. I've done it, they were fantastic and delicious.

It's your mind you've got to worry about, "the fear" creeps up on lots of first timers mainly due to you thinking too much about what you've just put in your body and what it's gonna be like. You just have to be comfortable and around good friends that will pull you out and make you remember you're just on a drug and you should enjoy it, not fear it.

If you have a positive spin on it, it's very hard for it to go wrong.

Wow Xavon, I haven't seen a poster who shares the same mentality about this as I do :O I, too smoke two or 3 joints a day, annd I'm fully functional with or without it, and I've been dfoing it since I was 16 as well... I also, like you have tried Shrooms, LSD, Opium (lol), and some others I can't remember lmao , But I true wonder why people look down on people who do these things.

I feel as I am more relaxed and have a clearer mind as I did before. I see some friends or acquantences who spend all day stressed to the bone and worry 24/7 about things that really have no meaning....

Glad to find people who share these kinds of experiences, I encourage anyone to try something new, as long as you have control over your mind!

I've done drugs before, but they honestly aren't my cup of tea. It's much more relaxing to be around good friends or the girl that I happen to be with at the time...you'd be surprised at how calming it is to be with the ones you love, to feel their hands in yours, their lips on yours...

Damn I hate being single.
