I've had very mild tinnitus for as long as I can remember. It's just always seemed normal to me. It's a high pitched white-noise-ish in the background. If I focus on it, it will get louder. I use it in meditation as something to focus on that's internal. When I started smoking weed about 30 years ago, I noticed that it really increased the intensity of my tinnitus. It's kind of a cool thing. I can close my eyes and focus on the tinnitus and if I maintain my focus the sound kind of slowly pulses in intensity, getting stronger and stronger. I begin to feel the pulse throughout my body. It can sometimes get overwhelming (usually only if I smoke too much), but otherwise it's really pleasant. Anyway, it's just kind of a really cool experience and I've always loved it. I'm curious if anyone else has this experience... I've never met anyone else that's shared it.
