    I Want To Get High

    If it was the case and I would smoke weed every time I would be depressed, I would be on top of the world.  Parts of me would love being high and part of me saying; I'm doing just fine this way, sober.  No need for drugs.

    I get really bad bursts of depression,

    and when it happens I like to sit in my room by myself and smoke weed and listen to music. It always puts me back into a good mood, but then later, i feel sad because my happiness is artificial. I still would rather have artificial happiness than none at all though.

    Don'T Trust Pharmaceuticals

    They have proven what THC does in the brain, THC is a key and there is a very specific lock it fits into in the brain, it's even built for that key. Anti-depressants: For depression, the mechanism of action of antidepressants is unknown. That means they have no clue what it...

    It Really Helps

    It may not solve all my problems but it definitely helps. No crazy side effects. As long as I can continue using medical marijuana I will never take any kind of pills/drugs.

    Literally! Last Saturday I was sooo high!

    Frigging loved it. When I'm high I block all my worries out. I just stay smiling. I absolutely love the buzz I receive from it.

    Push That Knot Away

    This might be long.. bear with me. I have been smoking weed since April 2011, before I had a major surgery to reconstruct my sternum. I only started smoking it, because I did not want to take any pain killers for my chest. However, a few years prior to smoking weed, I had a...

    A Joint To Make It All Go Away...

    Weed suppresses emotion quite well. That's why there is nothing better than lighting one up when you have a bad day. It distracts you for long enough to make it all go away. Nothing matters when you're stoned. There is no hatred, or anger or pain... only stonedness.

    It Makes Me Feel Better. I Like Feeling Better.

    I smoke weed. In fact I'm smoking now but I haven't reached the point where you begin to relax and forget the worries of the world. It won't take long though. It never does. Sometimes it surprises me how low my tolerance is. I have friends who have to smoke way more than me to...

    program at school and will have to go out on an externship.... For this I have to quit smoking marijuana. I only smoke when I'm at home, never before or during work. I treat it as if it's a glass of wine at the end of the night. No harm, just relaxation. Now I need to find a new...

    I don't do it a lot (maybe bi-weekly)

    and if I did every time I was depressed i'd be high almost every second of every day. But sometimes I feel like it's the only way I can fit in (and I don't even associate well with stoners). The only reason I started doing it in the first place is because my best friend started...

    I've been writing and smoking a lot tonight.

    I work my **** out while doing both. My nature time is often much more an insight than therapy, and its more fun not to mention it doesn't kill my coin jar. Why is it easier to talk with myself through a joint?
