  • I feel depressed and am not sure what to do with myself.

    You were already depressed and you were escaping through drugs.

    I used to work part time and would spend the rest of the time getting high and watching TV. Now that I am not getting high, I feel like my husband and I don't relate any more.

    Maybe that's because after a year or two of marriage you both tuned each other out and began getting high and watching TV. Now that you're not getting high, you're noticing the deficiencies in your relationship. Again...you already had a problem that you were escaping through drugs.

    during the 10 years that I was a pothead, I lost all of my friends because I would rather smoke than hang out with them.

    In your times of trouble, instead of leaning on your friends, you turned to drugs.

    Any advice would be welcome.

    Stop blaming cannabis. You were in need of a life change and instead of doing it through positivity you chose drugs to fix it.

    Yeah, pretty much this. Too often when anyone has problems with life and smokes pot, the pot gets blamed. If only they hadn't smoked pot their life would be peaches and cream (or unicorns and rainbows).

    That's a crock of shiat. Pot doesn't screw up people's lives (and it doesn't lead to success either). There are a whole lot of other things which affect success or failure in life.
  • I used to smoke a lot of pot, recreationally as I don't think I had anything really going wrong with my life. There is a period of depression when you quit, because the chemistry of your brain is altered slightly because of the mood elevation properties of THC. It's not necessarily masking already existing depression, it's simply that you are "used" to feeling that way at a certain time of day (after work in my case), and with that added boost gone the resulting sobriety feels lower and more down than you would otherwise feel. It is noticeable.

    It's not necessarily addictive, to the extent that the withdrawal symptoms are weak as compared with a hard drug or even habitual drinking, but there certainly are symptoms that exist when you move from heavy smoking to infrequent or quitting altogether.

    This person though, this was covered by jayelectricity.
  • I'd just like to point out that the person who wrote this letter is a woman. Unless, you know, we're talking about a gay couple. Not that there's anything wrong that.
  • I bet he remembers his dreams now which is cool
  • Have you ever sucked dick for weed, man?
  • Uh, what's the problem? Just start smoking again and everything goes back to normal. Duh.
  • Which is why marijuana used to be known as Dope
  • There's a major difference between psychological dependence and physical dependence.

    Last week I decided to not smoke. Started on Monday, and by Thursday I actually remembered my first dream. Too bad it was a farking nightmare that terrified me (stupid ass clowns). Made me regret ever wanting to remember that crap.

    /No withdrawal symptoms

    Only moms called it dope. Everyone else knew dope was heroin.
  • The meaning of the word 'Dope' in this context means 'cure-all,' dope!

    God, no shiat. The solution is right there in front of you. On the table. No, not the remote. The bong. All these problems and they're all fixed by that one little device. That one wonderful, maaaaagical device.

    How can people be so blind to the most obvious solution?

    Nobody likes a quitter.

    I've quit smoking pot a few times - supply problems....when you're not in college anymore and you move to a new town you don't have all those connections you used to have. I can honestly say it made very little difference. Other than wishing I could get high I felt absolutely no withdrawal symptoms.

    I could get pot right now - well, not right now, but I could get pot today if I really wanted (or "needed") it that bad (the people I could get it from have jobs and are at work right now), but I don't. It's not a miracle drug and I don't want to spend the money on it. It's not that I think pot is evil, I just don't see any benefit from me using it.

    Well, not any benefit other than getting high for a couple of hours. If someone handed me a joint I'd gladly partake but I'm not going to go out of my way to get any pot.

    i've blamed Weed, WoW, and my Weight for my loneliness in the past. When i realized that real change comes from within, even if that change is admitting your old ways are hurting you and that you need help. 

    Smoking significantly less since i have someone in my life instead of wasting my life trying to stay in the top 100,000s in Modern Warfare 3 (8 long angry months of unemployment) Now me and the lady friend enjoy a weekend of wine and weed every now and then.

    Were they no-talent, also?
  • I smoked marijuana every day, several times a day, (up to 5 times) from age 17 to 22. One day I decided I was tired of being overweight from binge eating due to munchies and being sedentary. All I would do was smoke, eat a pint of ice cream and play video games. To be honest, it was great. But I can't do that for the rest of my life.

    I quit cold turkey back in May of this year. I didn't suffer any adverse effects. Actually, every thing has been positive for me. I ended a bad relationship a girl who continues to smoke, I went from 205lbs to 171lbs and quit my dead end, minimum wage job and enlisted with the Air Force for 6 years. I plan to give them 20. I've been running and lifting every weekday too. But I need to cut this post short, I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes.
