A trip partner is always good to have, but it really is a deeply personal experience, with stuff like acid, I'd prefer to be on a beautiful beach somewhere, miles away from society, with no worries whatsoever. Can't forget the beautiful women, watching tits change shape and move around sitting still, fucking ballin.
lmao. I'm more of an ass man myself, but I see what you're getting at there. Around here, however, there's not too many beaches...I mean, there's the Jersey Shore, but I wouldn't go there if you paid me, what with the massive amount of toxicity and guidos and fake tans and fake everythings...but I digress. Plus, my stoner friends that are girls generally treat me better when I'm high than a normal girl does. >;]
Well, I used to smoke habitually, more than most of you here could imagine, and now looking back, it was fun, but a total waste of my potential. Since I don't smoke anymore, the seldomly few times I do smoke make me antisocial, and make me think hardcore about the decisions I've made in life, almost depressing at times. It just doesn't do it for me anymore, I'd rather stick to shit that always has the same effect, not something that decides to change up on each occasion. Alcohol, narcotics, maybe some amphetamine every once in a while, and of course acid and other fun things on days when things just can't get any better.
There is quite an intriguing duality of juxtaposition (perhaps that was the wrong way to phrase it because now it seems a bit contradictory, but bear with me) in the beauty and the curse that is retrospection/introspection. It tends to be more good than bad, and can really happen with any drug, but I agree with you that it tends to happen more when you're smokin' the ganj. It tends to happen to me in random bursts though, and usually only if I'm smoking alone and not watching a movie or listening to stoner music; when I'm with friends or something, then I'm somewhat of the stoner cliche, albeit not entirely (for some reason I keep my composure 10x better when I'm high than any of my friends do, and I don't get red-eye or anything, which is good and bad). It can happen on shrooms, DXM, DPH, and L as well, but again, I agree that it tends to happen infrequently compared to weed. Maybe it's just our psyches, who knows? My friends don't seem to get like that, haha. Personally, I don't smoke cigs or drink liquor (except for the very, VERY rare occasion when someone gets a small bottle of Hennessey, that dark shittt, so it's been like nine months) because I don't like to put anything highly toxic into my body, but that's just my personal preference; I can dig that you like to party and shit. Then again, I guess you could say that compared to a bunch of people in this club I'm a novice smoker...I mean, I can go through a fair amount in a couple days (most recently ~7g) and I've smoked in various ways with various strains, and when I smoke, I smoke a LOT, and all that jazz, but I haven't been smoking heavily for more than a couple of months, so it hasn't gotten old for me just yet. ;]
Looking back on my experiences with pot, it has gotten me nowhere, and I'm the kinda guy who dwells on petty shit like that. Most people say move on and forget the past, I can't. I hate wasting money, effort, and especially, time, on something that doesn't do anything positive for me. Whoever wants to do it, do it, the legal penalties alone are usually enough.
I can understand that, that if it doesn't do anything for you then there's no point in delving into it at all anymore. However, about the legal penalties...the same could be said for acid, coke, etc. because they're all Class I drugs in the US...even though the amount needed to overdose on weed is a much, much, MUCH higher amount than for any of the other drugs on that list of Class 1s (Crack/Cocaine, LSD, Heroin, Mescaline & Peyote I think), to the degree that it's literally impossible. But hey, to each their own, eh?
there was probably more I wanted to say, but I get too easily sidetracked in my thoughts. :3
