    It's not a good look when you smoke a joint in the morning and then sit on your computer all day.

    There is nothing wrong with smoking a little once in awhile
    as a reward to yourself for doing your hard work, but once
    it becomes an everyday, all day thing, you will tend to
    become complacent and your motivation will go south.
    That is a scientific fact.

    Everything in moderation . . . :)

    When you want to be successful you don't ask whats wrong with something
    you ask WHATS RIGHT WITH IT?
    is pot gonna take you in anyway closer to your goal? because if so, smoke away my friend
    want to lurk and watch youtube videos for 2 hours and work 30 minutes on your IM stuff because your high?
    go ahead

    Anyway i think you get my point
    Cheers

    I guess it depends on what strain you smoke too. I prefer the type that doesn't induce a lethargic type feeling. JMO

    100% agree with WizGiz and Oxon.

    Weed "addiction" is the last real addiction I've been trying to kick. I delt with all my harder addictions earlier in life (speed, opiates, etc).... but pot has been the hardest to kick. Just because it's viewed as an innocent drug.... and it's so easy to slip back into the habit of smoking everyday.

    I once smoked weed every single night, once a day, for 5 years straight without missing a day.

    I quit smoking on my own for 10 months. In those following 10 months my life improved like never before. I started my own business with my brother. Started making a lot of money, every single aspect of my life improved. My writing abilities, my social skills, my business, my earnings, my conversions, my vocabulary, my sex life, etc etc.

    THEN after 10 months, I don't know why, I smoked again. Wasn't a big deal, my life was still going good, so I smoked again the following month.

    Then I started smoking every other week, then every week, then everyday. And within 3-4 months I was back to smoking daily.

    There were split tests I was running for video marketing, and ALL the videos I did when I was smoking pot had shitty conversions or didn't convert at all. All the videos I did when I was fully sober converted between 4-22%.

    But sure enough, I slowly turned back into that lazy bastard I use to be. Instead of waking up and immediately getting to work...... I found myself watching tv or random viral videos on youtube, playing video games, over sleeping, over eating, and developing a host of bad habits again. I stopped watching the clock, stopped staying on top of things, and once again my life started going to shit.

    So I quit once again and things got back to normal. I was making good money again, was sharp, got my wits and sense of humor back. Then a few months later our business got national press and was broadcast on CBS. Things were going AWESOME.

    Problem is, about 6 months ago I started smoking again. And it's both sad but hilarious how predictable the side effects are. Because EVERY SINGLE TIME I get back to smoking on a daily basis, my earnings nose dive.

    I have debated and argued this with pot heads for most my life. But the diehard pot smokers (mostly the younger ones), no matter how much research you show them... they simply can not wrap their burnt out brains around the fact that pot makes you a lazy, dull, uninteresting, bum of a person.

    Like just look at some of the comments in here, "smoke that, roll that, light that"..... that's exactly what pot does to your brain kids.

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE WEED. Especially when I don't have a tolerance it's A LOT of fun to get high. But that's also a serious problem. Because I have an addictive personality (like many people do) and it's very rare for me to "control" my habit for more than 2-3 months. After that point I always wind up smoking every night. And the first few weeks are always fun. But as the months and years pass by I'm consistently reminded of the fact that I'm throwing my life away.

    And thats why I think pot is one of the worst drugs in the world. I honestly think it's worse than opiates. Because at least with opiates, when you get hooked you KNOW you have a serious problem. The side effects are much more obvious. But ironically, when I was hooked on opiates I was wayyy more productive than when I was a pothead. I still worked out, still got my shit done. As long as I didn't miss a dose I was mostly my normal self. With weed, it can take decades before you realize what you've truly sacrificed. It's subtle, it flies under the radar, lowers your IQ, your attention span, obliterates your memory, your personality, your sense of humor, your vocabulary, etc etc.

    tl:dr version - JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS KIDS

    I stay away from it because I have to stay sharp and one step ahead of my competition. Now if I was
    Kim Dotcom I might just head down to Jamaica and roll one up. ;)

    I doubt Kim Dotcom could do 10% of what he has done in his life if he smoked daily. He is a high achieving gentlemen and extremely smart and neither of those are traits of weed smokers.

    You would be suprised at the list of successful people who pull on a toke every once in awhile. I do agree with you
    that business and being high don't mix. What I meant is if you were some fat cat sitting on the beach it might be
    tempting to roll one up. :)

    Pot and anything for that matter influences people in different ways at different times and in different contexts. In other words you can't compare John to Jack and you can't compare Jack to himself in a very different context. This is the one big thing I realized about the relativity of human beings and what they do and it applies perfectly to pot smoking.

    There are people who swear pot is great for them, they're not addicted, it helps them be awesome, etc. There are also people with horror stories about pot.

    As with anything it matters a lot why you do it. And do you smoke the pot or does the pot "smokes" you. Who is in control and how much.

    Complete opposite actually. I probably smash down three coffees on average a day and pump the music hard, I'm charged and type like a mother fucker. I get tonnes of work done. I used to smoke all the time and read, run through lynda video tutorials and youtube tutorials. Don't get me wrong, I became a kick ass video editor, but sitting in a dark room with an old man point at the scree yelling just wasn't my thing, so I stopped and got into the coffee. Haven't looked back and make four times as much. So, whatever is your thing.
