Hey there so my name is Steven and I just made a new account this second cause I wanted to ask a few questions I was concerned about. I turned 21 on the 6th of may and I hadn't smoked weed at all in my life, closest was just sitting in a room with people who did it. I wanted to ask about smoking in general and being high/stoned. After my birthday I'd done it a total of 3 times and I want to share those times to start with so you can understand. My first time started off with me and my best friend (been friends since we were 4 years old) deciding to have a drink at his house. Once I got there he said to me we should try some weed for a laugh n chill out. None of us being seasoned or even recreational smokers gave it a try. And who else better than with one of my best friends from childhood? So we got the stuff from someone we know, does it all the time, knows his stuff etc etc. Went back to his and rolled it up and started smoking it. I'd known a lot about weed beforehand without ever being into it, i have a lot of friends who do it and that together with a lot of reading and interest in psychology and the effects different things can have I knew what I was getting into and the mood and how to approach the whole situation. What I didn't really get or understand is how I felt at certain times without me specifically making myself feel that way. I remember we passed it back and forward and being my first time I've read it's best you take it slow and 1 hit at a time which I did. I took one hit and waited a while and never felt anything. Took a second and started feeling it and it felt like that was enough. I stopped toking it after my 2nd toke... wasn't even a big one. But I remember it felt like being drunk a little then it hit me more and everything began feeling heavy and i laughed alot. I quite enjoyed this I thought to myself.. and I enjoyed it for about 10 mins just talking away and watching tv. What happened next I just don't understand because nothing brought it on. I started feeling my legs randomly twitch every 5 mins. I thought no big deal it will just be my body getting used to this new experience. This persisted all through the high... it didn't really bother me. But for some reason my heart sort of wasn't beating rapidly but it was going quite fast. I said no big deal just my body again. But my whole entire high was kind of more about realizing my heart beating and random twitching now and again. Which started to bug me and continued through my come-down but I didn't get any paranoia or anything... I walked home feeling good listening to some music. But when I thought back on it. It kinda annoyed me that my high was just annoying cause all I did was sort of twitch... I never panicked never had any of that I was just annoyed my high ended up like that till it was over. Second time I was with another best mate for basically as long as I remember. We lit it up and I had more this time, i remember when it hit me I was staring at these trees in the distance, watching them sway back and forth.. it was like the trees moved in sync with my body frequency. It was really nice. We sat there in silence for a good while and it was really nice and pleasant. That random twitch came again and it wasn't a case of sitting it out this time... I just said to myself "ohh not again" kind of thing, it's really annoying. Then the heart thing picked up again... just for no reason it's like my good high has to be interrupted or something I can't eve explain it. Third time was on Sunday night just passed. I rolled a small joint... a small one. Had about 3 tokes from it. Same again I had a good high for a little bit then the random annoying twitch would start, then the heart thing... but while this happened I was calm and just sitting there not really caring, it didnt get bad or anything it was just inconvenient and fucking annoying. Sorry that was long but I felt for it to make perfect sense I had to explain it like this. It just feels like when I get high I'm only allowed 10 mins out of the hour I'll be high. I feel good, not caring about anything, then a twitch will come and annoy my high... and from then on I can't get that un-disturbed high back it becomes me being annoyed at the crap that's happening. I still feel high when this happens but it always gets ruined. I suppose the point of saying all this was to see what you all think about it. How do I just smoke and chill the fuck out for the whole hour or so i'm high? I feel like it just gets ruined then I feel like what's even the point... Throughout all this everything was perfect. Everything was comfortable. The fact my high always is amazing to start with.. like a high should be. Then it's just ruined. Everytime... Thanks for reading. I look forward to the replies.
