Why do I even smoke weed

Discussion in 'Philosophy' started by bdk2jw, Jan 25, 2014.

  1. Okay, so honestly, 99% of the times I spark up I don't have a single reason for. It is literally nothing but a habit for me now (well tbh it's been one) I mean I literally smoke whenever I can. Whenever I ask myself "why did I even just smoke" I can never think of a reason why, and I really don't get why I do. I'm perfectly fine mentally and physically, so I don't really get it. I smoke practically every day, and I consider 1 time a day on the light side. Obviously I smoke because I enjoy being high, but why do I do it so obsessively? I smoke literally a couple bowls every 30 minutes, while to some that may not be a lot, to someone like me thats way more than needed. And the part that I don't understand is that I know I'll only get a little higher for another 20 minutes max, yet I still spark up. Whenever I'm high I'm never satisfied, I just worry and stress about not being high enough and shit. When I'm sober, I'm not sad or upset or anything, and I usually don't even crave marijuana, its basically just a habit (although when I know I'm about to go smoke at the end of a day without smoking all day I start getting a little antsy)
     
    I am kinda just venting about my smoking habits and looking for reflection basically lol

    If you're smoking a couple bowls every 30 minutes your weed must suck..I can vape a very small amount of good weed and have a strong high for an hour and 15 minutes at least.
     
    If you are high and just smoking again just to smoke..why would you do that? All you are doing is burning your money and inhaling alot of un-needed smoke.
     
  3. I get pretty good weed, and recently I've been smoking straight kief. A little bud to hold the weed then just pack a full bowl of kief.
     
  4. You're not alone brother. I'm the exact same way... I honestly don't know why the fuck I smoke. I just like how i can forget about shit that bothers me, it puts me in a better mode when I come down, and it makes shit funnier than it should be.. but idk. It makes me rethink a lot about myself. Fuck. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Grasscity Forum mobile app
     
  5. bro honestly, thats not even a reason i consider why i do. Any of the things in my life I wish I could change/ I wish were different I've never had too much of a problem with, especially not to the point that I'd need weed to forget about them. I  don't think I've ever smoked to take a break from life (unless I had a physically exhausting day). I guess the real reason is simply because I love being as high as I can be lol

When I'm blazed alone, I start thinking "like why am I so lame?"Then I look in the mirror, laugh, tell myself "you're 1 ugly nigga but u can still get hoes", n then proceed to smoke even more Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum

    man yeah that shit happens to me when i'm high sometimes. But usually I have some pretty good epiphanies and self-reflections that seem like really good ideas and seem really important but I ALWAYS forget about it and it sucks. Like when I'm high now-a-days I always make really motivating speeches in my head lol and stuff and plans and goals and shit and then literally in the middle of it I'll just forget about it. It really kinda sucks because I never feel inspired like this when i'm sober 
     
    shit, I used to hear people say weed makes them creative and inspired and shit and I never believed them, but i see it now
     
    Like for example, I think yesterday I had just envisioned myself in the future looking good and fit and shit, and then I created this whole work out plan and what clothes I want and everything lol then in the middle of it all I forgot where I was going with it and now (sober) it doesn't even seem important/near as important as before

I can come up with a cure for cancer blazed asf but forget that shit as soon as I see some1 on their deathbed. I have horrible short-term memory loss..Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
     
  9. it sucks for me because I go off on the most amazing/sometimes poetic shit and I get distracted by 1 stupid thing and I'm back in la la land lol. 1 time I was walking to my friends house after smoking and I was just going off in my head about how amazing the townhouses were, perfectly symmetrical, set up on a system, all the houses basically with 2 or 3 different lay outs, but all of them being fresh. Just the entire system behind it I was marveling about, then some car drove by or something and I was then back at laughing at just stupid shit lol 
     
  10. Lmaoo bro that's why u gotta write your thoughts down or something. So if u die as an average joe, some1 can stumble across ur genius n publish that shit. That's how I wanna go out, a post-philosopher, or some shit like thatSent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum

Like I remember when that recent "wizard of oz" movie came out, I was like "I need to get fucking KEYYED and watch that movie." Or like certain restaurants I like to smoke before I eat there cause it makes the food 10x more delicious for some reason lol. In all honesty, if you love being high, FUCKING GET HIGH lol. I think people (like myself) that just like to cloud their mind or make things better that they'd find boring or just not as interesting is an unhealthy thing lol. I don't feel that way all the time, but 50% lol.Sent from my SCH-I545 using Grasscity Forum mobile app
     
  12. Simple; Get a job. Smoke when you're off. That's what I do. My life is beautiful. Well my life actually sucks but when time at work is slow I remind myself "7 hours to go... and then I'm getting blazed". I love somking after work and then chill til I fall asleep.
     
  13. its how I make reflections, I don't really care if someone see's/hears it tbh lol I just share it so my mind can pick at it. Call me weird, but I often go over "big" events that have happened recently out loud just so I can fully grasp it and make notes/reflections and shit. Its just how my mind works lol
     
  14. lol I kinda do the same, but I'm weirder with it. I'll have conversations with myself trying to analyze a specific subject, crack jokes n laugh when I say the punchline like I didn't know what I was gonna say anyway, n discuss various problems out loud like I'm my own therapist. Lol Idk bro I hang with ppl but years of being a loner kinda fucks u up in the head. Fuck it, I'm bout to finish this roach right now thoSent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
     
  15. Intention is everything.
     
    We know cannabis has a number of uses, but as an aid in meditation, or opening to shamanic experience, is for me its strongest, perhaps even its proper use. Those who've been using it solely recreationally may be recognising something that isn't being opened to, and without the intention to do so, starts to become less and less useful.
     
    I am always surprised at how much people actually use (outside of its medical use), and in many ways, this can be a big part of the problem. The idea is to go up TO the high, not bring the high down to us, so a little, and I mean a little, coupled with a breathing practice, focus, can take things in a whole different direction. For those who've been smoking huge amounts for long periods, there would need to be a good T-break to reset tolerance before trying it. 3-5 days at least. Not only will you consume far less, making it go further, cost less, etc, but you will be raising your game into a new experience.
     
    It may surprise you that I use an amount that would fit onto the end of the tip of a teaspoon, which through meditation lasts 4,5, sometimes 6 hours. Using the high this way creates a certain energy within, and it is this energy that takes the high to another level. Takes time to achieve, and needs intention and practice, but there are other ways of using cannabis that are not like the recreational experience.
     
  16. Maybe my head is screwed up in a way , idk; but I find that the small chemical induced insecurities I feel when high for brief moments, Is necessary for my perpetual self-discovery. As human beings we should, not ever, not stride to enlighten ourselves as per our selves. Like I said, maybe I've smoked to much pot today and my brain is so backwards I think I know shit. ^____^ maybe what you crave subconsciously is to explore parts of your psyche you do not wish to have: so that you may defeat these negative self images. Just remember the effect on the brains ability to turn short term memory to long term is impaired after a chief out. So forget that negative shit and distract yourself into euphoria :pTy! Please smoke again!

    whenever I think I have a good idea high, or even if it's something hella weird I always write it down. That way I can go back when I'm sober and see what the big deal was lol. There was this YouTube video I seen one time while stoned where they showed a sphere that was scientifically crafted that cost about 2million dollars to make that was considered to be "100% perfectly round." They went on to say that locked away in a super secure vault is a 100% perfect pound (lb) and that it has to be that way because that is our physical example of a pound that can never weigh any more or anyless. When I watched this, I was like wtf? ? So I watched the video while I was sober and was just as intrigued as I was high. But I would have never watched that sober cause it looked boring.. where I am trying to go with this is that you should keep track of what you see and do when blazed cause it could lead to something incredible.. since that day I have this passion to discover more things involving science and technology type stuff.Sent from my SCH-I545 using Grasscity Forum mobile app

However it is habituating so you'll want to smoke whenever u can. The secret here is self discipline, instead of a bowl every 30 min, only let yourself have a bowl at hour intervals, start small and you'll be in full control in no time. I normally burn a quarter a week but since I want a new bong I'm only smoking a dub a week while I save up. Hope this helps.Sent from my cloud of smoke:)
