it's because when you smoke you have time to think of everything you've done

lol how about you don't try to tell people that their experience of the drug is wrong and that you actually know what's going on in their mind


cannabis, for me at least, increasingly generates a "vibe" in consciousness, that lasts for 5-10 mins at the start of a new high session. initially I would have described it as similar to guilt. the feeling that is associated with having done something wrong or being caught or whatever. someone then once told me that anxiety can feel like guilt, and regardless of the word we use, we are talking about the feeling that is generally associated with anxious thought, but we are not talking about the thoughts themselves

this feeling present in consciousness, that is not pleasant, distinctly dysphoric, can lead to anxious thoughts, and yes you can learn to deal with them, and you can even learn to notice that this anxious feeling will die away soon, and that it is due to the cannabis, but until this feeling subsides, it is nonetheless real and present, and imo, increasingly not worth it

if I am doing something fun enough, I can be distracted long enough until it passes

or if I am dumb enough to hit the weed too hard during a trip, this anxious period at the start of being high can lead to some uncomfortable trip thoughts. its the only time during a trip I ever have thoughts that equate to "these are finally the thoughts that give you psychosis", and the paranoia and anxiety creates a series of very uncomfortable thoughts that feels like the start of a legit psychosis-lyfe train. trips without weed don't tend to do this


anyway. get high, but don't deny

weed anxiety for me is entirely the sensorial volume knob being turned way too loud, which is smth I already struggle with at a baseline. because of this it can do weird things like make pain hurt more for me, so its frustrating when ppl suggest it for everything. as I already mentioned I couldnt enjoy it reliably without my other meds

once when deep on some mescaline and acid I remembered I had some weed and then I asked my mind to focus only on the hallucinations and that very moment the hallucinations went into overdrive and I saw this bright light and it legit felt like a deity which was a new feeling and it lasted a minute or so but it was incredible

mescaline really is something else lol, but it did need the weed to kick it into actual transcending mortal concepts

over time, I got to a place where I was eating a 10mg THC edible every night to fall asleep, sometimes paired up with a beer or two if I was feeling wild. Stayed there for probably 8 months, and realized that my sleep was crap and I was always tired and felt like poo poo all the time.

I used to have minor body panics sometimes, and I always had to remind myself not to trust my body's signals when I was stoned. No, that sensation of a heart attack isn't real. No, I didn't just break a filling without realizing it. No, I won't bite my tongue. Yes, I still know where it is in my month. Even though it has its own mind, maaan.

I stopped both of those things cold-turkey about a week ago now. The first few nights were loving horrible, but now I feel sharper than I have in a long time. I still haven't slept through the night like I used to do when I was younger, but I'm hopeful that will come back. I also hope my ability to remember stuff will come back too.

weed also gives me crazy heartburn for some reason that I never understood. (No it wasn't from chowing down on a bunch of snacks).

when I was in college circa 2005 or so, my buddies and I used to just get absolutely high as gently caress and play tabletop RPGs on Sunday morning/afternoons. Those were some of the funnest days of my life so I guess weed's not all bad :sweatdrop:

typical:

meet at ~11AM
go buy a couple of dominos pizzas and some cheap beer
pack the hookah with 4:1 shisha:weed and get after it

for me, weed is cool and fun and can also be a neat introspective tool. for some people, it is not cool and fun and not a neat introspective tool.

i would probably have better memory and some other stuff if i stopped smoking for a while, but i'm also going through weaning off of ambien after being on it for several years, and it kinda fuckin sucks, so i'd rather have my weed crutch to help deal with it!

I used to eat mushrooms like twice a week for a while

It seemed to be a lot more sustainable as far as my mental health went than when I would smoke weed often which would definitely affect my daily life

what I ak trying to say is to take nagix mushrooms

idk my first and only acid trip was horrible and its left scars on my brain, psychedelics can easily change you in unexpected ways. On the plus side im hyper sensitive to weed now so im a cheap date. Not sure if the trauma was worth it :raise:
