    I say "WAS" because i stopped smoking 2 whole days ago.

    What I want is some tips on staying sober. I am craving me some green more than ever. It enhances my creativity more than anything else.

    Give me a good reason to help me stop smoking pot!

    I can't come up with any reasons to stop....it's amazing and healthy(with my $500 volcano vaporizer)...

    I quit 2 weeks ago. The reason i quit is because it makes me tired all the time when my mates are always active. Kinda sucks when you have a night out and then just fall asleep haha.

    I have had cravings but its easy if you just do something interesting when the cravings come.

    Reason you should give up is...... Because when you make loads of money you don't wanna end up spending it all smoking it up.

    I am an a recovering alcoholic and believe me I know how hard it is give something up, but it is worth it in the long run, you are always trying to figure out were your next fix from.

    I can't imagine being addicted to weed. It is fun to smoke and then eat and play video games once in a while, but really? people are addicted?

    Just hang around people that don't do it. I know in our profession there is a lot of solo time. Luckily I don't like doing it by myself.

    what is a stoner? Does he only smoke weed or other things? I smoked very much weed in my youth but now I would never touch it again. After quitting to smoke I gained more power to concentrate on other things.

    Obviously pot can make you tired and im not condoning it by any means because it is illegal. I am all for the legalzation and what not but i would quit for a bit kind of go through a detox take vitamans and build up your body ... it is a drug and can effect nerves and what not. Then work out , exersice is a main reason why people are tired all the time they do not get enough exersisce. Btw everything is misspelled because i am on internet explorer in paralells and i dont have spell check heheheh.

    If it makes you tired try adding a small pinch of calamus root powder to your joint, improves the buzz too.

    @technetrium, Weed is non addictive?
    I don't know what it proves, but your double post just now in this context is ironic. :D

    You won't give it up so easy, especially if you have friends that do the same thing. Not many people will give up 'friends' that way.

    I can't remember where i got this from (i rip off knowledge very regularly, ask snowwhite) but they said a reason for not smoking is that it saves you from yourself.

    Dont be like the media who blames weed when someone who died in a car accident and had weed in their system from a party 2 nights prior.

    too right, the media gets it's money from the same people who make money from keeping weed illegal don't believe them.

    Kinda like the leah betts media crusade against E - brought to you by the UK drinks industry panicking to work out how to capitalise on someones death to scare the millions of UK youth going clubbing every weekend and not buying booze.

    I'll give you some reasons...you can get cancer...you can lose your sex drive(your nuts will shrink)....your kids will want to smoke(not a good look).

    As you get older you'll want to smoke more....meaning it'll be harder to break the habit or maintain....when you get older it is already harder to motivate yourself so you may find yourself a pot head and no drive to succeeed like when you were at your peak(hence making money online or off)....smoking messes up your teeth too...picture yellow teeth, unkept hygiene and the only women that you'll attract is crack heads when your older...no more classy "top of the line" women.....another reason: weed is a gateway drug...Oh and weed is addictive...

    My story:
    I USED to smoke but was smart enough to catch myself slipping before that bullshit got out of hand. I went to the extreme to quit. I went cold turkey for 8 months and cut off all my close friends and family because thats all they did....and I went into self imposed exile for 8 months and stayed off for another 3 months then slipped up hanging out and took 2 puffs before I went off to prison for something else...stayed off for another 5 years until I backslide started smoking a high grade weed for a short while and remembered why I stopped in the first place and been weed free for the last 10 years....

    Complete bullshit.

    50 times stronger than what they thought? Ok, so someone was stupid when it comes to what they thought right?

    No deaths in the UK from weed, maybe blamed on weed, but no, no deaths in the UK from week.

    I am the type of person that says do what makes you happy so if you want to smoke weed, then do so. What I don't get is how defensive weed smokers are. Lol everything is a conspiracy against them because they smoke weed. I guess paranoia is a true side effect of smoking weed :)

    Many many people die from being high and crashing their car or killing others because of their actions. I get so pissed off when I see some guy at a traffic light smokin up. Somehow that's alright but if I was sipping a beer while driving, I'm the dangerous one? If you are impaired, you are impaired.

    Back to the initial post though...if you don't have a reason to stop then nobody here will help you. Smoke or don't smoke...you do both for yourself and nobody else.

    No need to QUIT.
    Just smoke less.

    Once a week would be a pretty good number to shoot for. And try to do something interesting while your high, spend time with some good friends, or sit in the woods or something.

    Which brings me to my next point - Meditate a bit and remind yourself on how interesting and enjoyable life can be without getting high.
    Remember when you were a kid and everything was amazing? Little has changed. You've just repressed your senses. Learn to feel again using some meditation. You'll grow as a person and life will become more interesting.

    As long Im being a hippy here I might as well suggest some yoga. I do yoga almost everyday and it fucking rocks. My body feels great, I look great, its as challeging as you want it to be, and a great mental workout. Further, Yoga gets you high.

    If I had to choose between pot and yoga I would choose yoga without even thinking its that good.
