Hey blades, recently I've been off weed for about a week for the first time after 3 years of heavy usage. I will admit that I have become more irritable in a way, and little things tend to get on my nerve more than before. Essentially, I have noticed that a lot of my old-time buddies are assholes. They always comment about how I smoke weed everyday and really believe that I am ruining my life, and say I should only smoke with them every now and then. They really do view me as a burn out and it seems they always have to make the point that I am inferior to them or just dumbed down by the substance. I believe they think this because I'm still unsure about my future and am not the loudest person, but still I really don't need their criticism. I'm starting to see how I'm just letting them walk all over me, while always being the nice, passive guy who keeps to himself and doesn't carry a condescending attitude. One guy in the group is very condescending, but smart, and I enjoy chilling with him alone and all. But now I've had enough of being called stupid and being the target of jokes when in a group, and having them point out that I'm such a pothead and that I need to change. Like literally every time we would chill there I would just get negative vibes after being insulted, even by my best friend, who said I was the stupidest out of all of them. While my other friends usually feed off this energy and continue to put me down. Personally i think they all reek of insecurity, or are not intelligent enough to have real conversations. (not just constant chirping and talk about sports and other meaningless shit) What do you guys think? I'm sorry if I come off as a complainer but damn I think I've had enough of this, and I really do believe that there is a fine line between just messing around and insulting somebody constantly.
