So I have very nice glass on glass 7mm thick bong that cost about the price of an xbox or ps3 or an ounce (about $350). I have been getting stingy lately about my friends and roomates wanting to use it because I had one like it before that I broke myself so I am naturally more careful, hence the 7mm, which is a good amount thicker than the previous one. I don't really like to smoke bong all the time because it's harsh (being a 2 foot tall one) and I don't want to get used to that because it will lower my tolerance. I like to use it with friends (used to) because it is honestly big and kind of dope to look at and a little "show-offy" , but after a LOT of "hey can we use the bong?", I started feeling used since I spent a lot of money on it (not that I'm expecting them to pay me just to use it, nor would I accept that because that would be really lame of me) and I have been kind of enjoying smoking it myself as a "me thing", while I reserve joints and bowls for social smoking. I was just looking for an objective eye on the situation, and maybe some advice. Am I being too stingy and is there any ways I can say no without giving page worth of excuses like this or seeming like a jerk, because I have the bong literally right next to me but don't want to let it out of it's comfortable bag more than once every few weeks for social smokes. I bought it a while ago for me to use, just like going to buy a pair of glasses which aids my vision, thus creating pleasure. The bong aids my mental state (patient speaking), thus creating pleasure. It's hard to find input on these things considering it's more legally grey than a pair of glasses or shoes and I can't really complain to superiors or elders that I know about my "dope problems", what do you think grasscity? Oh yeah sorry for the long post. Also I like smoking an matching up with friends. I also don't really mind sharing out my other material things...just not my smoking things. Oh yeah the same goes for grinder too.
