So, lately (About a month now) my life just seems to be getting more tiresome, etc etc. And I've accumulated enough repressed emotions for the whole of the EA tech staff (Inside nerd joke. They're soulless you know).

So, I want to distract myself. I've been over thinking everything everything and I just need to sort my head out by relaxing. So how do you folks do it?

By the way:
- IcyHoy didn't work.
- No I do not like Mudkipz.
- Already fapped.
- Already done a Barrel Roll
- <Insert another meme here>

Any help appreciated.

Start a woodworking project, it's fun and pretty time consuming.

Build a guitar or something.

Try your hand at electronics and build yourself an amp.

Failing that, become a piro and burn your current atrocity.

Uh, but then after you've smoked it, your life will still be a mess. Doesn't really change anything.

Me too,
I looked up just about everything I could about it
What I found was that its never been proven to cause any brain damage, and they've done tests
And it you can't get physically addicted to it
You can't overdose on marijuana
It never killed someone, save for the morons who got behind the wheel of a car
Theres all sorts of things that are being told to the public that arent true

In my group therapy, there was a picture of a brain on the wall of someone who smoked pot for two years that was supposedly unhealthy, but when I asked the therapist if that was true, she said no, but shes still against marijuana. And she had to admit to it not being damaging.

It is really tempting. But I mean I'm 16 and I live with my parents. It'd be bloody difficult to get a hold of and conceal.
#22
Self-medication isn't a permanent solution. You just need to meet some new people, or do something new.

Edit: ^it's actually pretty easy to get hold of, and conceal, so long as you are not daft. But smoking weed isn't a solution to life's problems, it just hides them, same as alcohol. Not trying to bash either of those substances, SWIM loves them. Just don't want to see you pushed down a certain road for the wrong reasons.

Thats what I thought.
I'm 15 btw.
Its actually easier to find than you think.
One out of three kids in high school knows someone who sells weed (or knows someone who knows someone)
So just ask someone you think looks like smokes weed if they have any connects
And then the only trick is to find a place to smoke it
Definatly not your house.
I usually go to the park with some friends
Use eye drops to get rid of the red eyes
I have some cuz I wear contacts, im pretty sure you can get some at walmart
spray yourself with a ****load of axe to get rid of the smell
and chew some gum to get rid of breath
It works for me, I haven't gotten caught

Yeah. But firstly I need to calm down and change my way of thinking, etc. Because if I meet new people I don't really want to lose these ones too.
#25
If you want to change the way you think, or perceive things, perhaps try reading some Marxist material, then some humanist and even some feminist philosophies. I've done a fair bit of reading down that road over the past few months, it's very interesting and thought provoking.

Edit: On reflection I'm probably barking up the wrong tree here.

sorry dudes weed can cause problems like paranoia, depression, vivid dreams where you talk and move about a lot in your sleep and you can get addicted.
my brothers been on it for about 3 years although he hasn't been depressed or paranoid he does all the other stuff i mentioned and once he was really determined to break the habit because he knows its bad for him and the longest he lasted was a few days before he went back to it. All drugs just spell bad news, they ain't worth it.

Hmm, well a certain amount of that is just down to life experience. You're still pretty young and will change in personality/outlook as you get older/mature. Leaving home etc etc was good for me, it forces you to put yourself in situations you're perhaps not that comfortable in/dealing with, and you learn that way. Or at least I did.

This is bull.
First of all weed isnt a drug.
Drugs are man-made by definition.
But second of all, you cannot get physically addicted.
It doesn't have anything in it to get you addicted.
You may get psychologically addicted.
Thats not true addiction, thats where you just want it because you like it.
You can get psychologically addicted to music, or food, or anything really.
And its a myth that it causes paranoia and schizophrenia.
It only does that in people who already have that.
Then there is a possibility that it would bring it out.
But in people without mental conditions, it can't do anything.
Trust me, I have asked any and all questions to all kinds of "anti-pot" people

you know that voice inside your head that tells you to not care and just say **** it, but you resist because you think you know you need to think about something? listen to that voice more(moderation is key though) and you'll be fine.

I've met plenty of people who are fried from pot use in their younger yrs. SWIM loves it, but you cant deny there are risks involved. Either way this shouldn't turn into another drug debate thread.

If we could only talk about things in one thread then there would only be about five threads. As long as this one isn't only about marijuana, you can still talk about it. Besides, marijuana is never talked about in the drug thread

It doesn't matter if you've smoked it for 1 or 10 years it can still leave you susceptible to mental illness and exaggerate your feelings if your depressed . Check wikipedia and scroll down to health issues if you think I'm full of s*it.

Maybe so, but if it turns into a full-blown debate over "does marijuana turn you into a vegetable?" then it's better for the drug thread, and if that's what the TS wants to know about that's where he can go.

Marijuana can only cause mental illness to people who already have it. In that case, I agree, people who have mental illness shouldn't smoke pot if it makes it worse. But it has no affect on people who don't have one. Or me, who does have a mental illness, but it doesn't affect me.
