First tried it when i was 13, smoked off and on, like twice three times a year, until i met a group of friends who smoked everyday, i started to hang out with them in a car, that we would hotbox, get High exchange stories, listen to music, and analyze everything.
i smoked from middle of my senior year till, last December, i stopped cold turkey, felt guilty, couldn't believe my life was a dream for a whole year, parents never found out, wish they did though i probably would have quit out of pure embarrassment much sooner.
my friend who i started smoking with is 17, he has declined in school, spent lots of money, and is struggling with his addiction. my whole group worked and kept day jobs/school. we moved up in levels of smoking regular, to hydro, to kush, to white widow, and so on. the more money you have the ''better the people'' (dealers with good weed) you meet. smoking everyday was somthing we laughed about, calling each other ''addicts, hypes, junkies'' when we thought we weren't, but we are.
my group of friend surpassed what most of you older guys on here have done in your long years of smoking in about 1 year. argue, point stuff out, i don't care, we were really up there............its sad to see how far we got into this for our age.
weed brought me good things, it helped me realize a lot that i couldn't sober, it made me realize that i needed to stop also.
for those of you trying to stop,....its all a trick, your mind tricks you, everything that encourages that weed is good, and unharmfull is a trick, bob marleys interview is a trick, NORML is a trick, everything is endorsed by addicts, that have the same problem as you,'' its a plant''..... ''its harmless''.....''legalize'' is things to make you feel good about your ADDICTION... i suck at explaining things....its just that i have experienced every good and bad thing weed has to offer in one short year, because of the situation i was in. lots of friends, money, free time, and problems that i couldn't straighten out high, i always thought of it as, when you're a pothead, you are mentally ill, you realize how clear you are after, oh say, 10 days of being sober. try it......... have a lot more to this, but, i'll stop it probably wont make sense
