    A few of my friends went on a serious oxycontin binge

    It was all well and good until they stopped, and became dope-sick and irate and totally fucked up

    Painkillers are nasty stuff. Even though they make you feel better then anything in the whole world. Especially if you mix morphine with oc/codeine/etc.

    To my knowledge, you can get synthetic THC pills in certain parts of the state if you have terminal cancer, but other then that it's all out. Which is asinine, because they want me to take physically addictive benziodiazapenes instead of weed, which is way less threatening and achieves the same approximate level of anxiety mitigation and life-dealing-with-ability.

    What you need in order to escape the ill effects of weed...is self-motivation and self-control.

    If you don't have that, you're likely to become a stereotype stoner.

    I have this theory that people who smoke pot don't necessarily become lazy. But rather, if you're lazy, AND you smoke pot, you'll probably become that stereotype.

    I've found the secret to avoiding pathetic stonerdom is merely to avoid smoking in the mornings or prior to acting responsible, or whatever the average stoners equivalent of responsible is

    I found that when I had a bowlpack at the end of the day to motivate me I was substantially happier, more secure, and more likely to get everything done knowing that I had earned that evanescent, wonderful, stoney rest at the end of the day.

    Now I really want a bong hit.

    A hit before bed is quite delightful, although if I'm not careful it tends to cause grogginess in the morning.

    A hit before bed, and then laying back and falling asleep to a podcast was how I got through some of my shittier years in college working manual labor jobs.

    Well, I prefer more like three or four bowlpacks out of a decent sized bong, but it's really all about getting nice and toasted once you've accomplished everything you need to do.

    What vexes me so regularly is the inability of my peers to reach this middle-ground

    Actually, I smoked all four years through college, and graduated with something like a 3.7 at my state school. Like I said, if you're self-motivated and smoke a little weed, there's really nothing to worry about. If you're a lazy shit and you start to smoke the weed, you're sort of fucked.

    Yeah. I was a lazy, ungrateful, overall assfuck in highschool. After my two friends left, I was the school pothead, and everyone knew it. It was good times but I'm glad I got them out of the way before I became a legal adult whose family has invested a great deal of quantifiable assets into the educatoin thereof, and I want to make the best of it.

    I'm pretty glad I spent high school fucking around, skipping school, committing petty crimes, and getting fucked up for no reason. Because now I have no interest in doing that in college, where most people flip out and fuck themselves over.

    the nicest part about weed is how not really inebriating it is

    it allows a high functioning life style

  • FandyienFandyien But Otto, what about us? Registered User regular
    edited June 2009
    Weed isn't inebriating in the slightest

    It saps my motivation to a degree and sort of mitigates my immediate interests when I'm mega high, but if it comes down to it, I am equally functional when toasted

    Or at least I was. It's been a week so I hopefully my tolerance has decreased some, though four years of smoking five times a day preceding this might make that unlikely.

    The first step is accepting you are lazy.

    The second step is hatefully, angrily, grudgingly, but successfully not being lazy most of the time. The third step is, at the end of that grudging series of events, getting hyper-lazy and eating like six bowls of cocoa puffs.

    During my sophomore year of high school on November 12 of 2006 I went into the hospital. Got out December 16.

    Apparently, I had this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wegener%27s_granulomatosis

    I had to do...everything...lots and lots of pills, catheter in the wang, urinate orange/red pee in a bottle, wear a diaper and use it extensively and get wiped up by a nurse.

    Lines in my thigh, chest, wrist, the inner part of the arm where the elbow is, kidney biopsy where I wasn't fully knocked out, hallucinations from drugs, including one nice one where I'm in a warm pool with three lovely nurses. I was knocked out for ten days. Feeding tube up the nose.

    Plasmapheresis, something like 9 blood transfusions because of blood in my urine and pulmonary hemorrhaging.

    I managed to get WoW and a 360 from awesome high school classmates. Still on some drugs though.

    This used to work for me, but not so much after these past years of constant smokeage. I usually smoke incredibly high grade indica, though, because my mental state is usually fine, and I appreciate the feeling stoned, munchy relaxation

    But upon acquisition of light, high-grade sativas, I admit that waking up and taking a few hits can give you an awesome perspective on the day to come

    Wow, man. That is terrible. The worst part about taking lots of stuff for physical ailments is the havoc they wreak on your body while doing nothing mitigate the psychological pain that almost always prefaces.

    Someone was trying to sell me hydromorphone the other day

    Methadone, too. I was just all "naw that sounds retarded but thanks anyway". It's easier to kick almost any habit then those sorts of heavy bullshit.

    The reason I don't do that stuff anymore is because I remember the look in my best friend (at the time, a few years back) eyes after this terrifying criminal scumbag had given him a free line of heroin. There was nothing there. Totally devoid of the spark that indicates, this person is alive.

    Fuck. That.
