unhinged if you have to ask, then you are definitely missing something. but, some people can be content without any sort of chemical assistance. i, on the other hand, cannot. but i have to say, getting_high is getting_old. i think it put me in the hospital. but, it kept me from killing myself and it has opened amazing doors of creativity for me. altering your mind isn't necessarily a bad thing. trying to operate vehicles, trying to have serious conversations, and in other words trying to do plenty of everyday things however can be a very bad idea when your mind is altered. it's for the thrill seekers, the depressed, the artistic, the bored. but when we are getting_high everyday, we need to be able to realize that that is a problem. as much as i really do hate to say it, marijuana is a gateway drug. eventually, that high isn't good enough anymore. even though i never let myself slip into anything more serious, i know that just as well as all my friends who have turned into cokeheads and crackheads and pillheads. i'm trying to give up getting_high. i gave my bowl to wendy. my brother is in a state of disbelief. i think it is better this way. while i was mildly productive when i was getting_high everyday, i think things will be better for me this way. if i don't turn into an alcoholic instead.... 030617

User24 yeah, that's true unhinged, getting_high every day is bad.

every other day is ok though, right??

unhinged how did i know that this page would attract the two biggest pot advocates around this place? :)

every other day was me trying to slow down for awhile. and i can't say that getting_high everyday was necessarily BAD either cause i did graduate from youngstown state with a 3.88 and an honors degree. functional potheadism...i guess that is the key.

User24 so long as you realise that this reality is real, and that other one, while it's really great, is not real.

as long as you can put your hand on your heart at some point, and say "I don't want to get high tonight" it's ok.

unhinged getting high was reality for me. after six months of relative sobriety/recreational drug use coming back to it, all my friends getting drunk and stoned and coked out and smacked up every day....it is unfathomable to me now. it actually straight up pisses me off. but after looking into broken_mirrors tonight, after going back to youngstown three times since i've been home and not seeing him, hearing a third party tell me that he had just been doing coke with him, how drunk people got on new year's eve, sitting on that stoop AGAIN, how my scene had disintegrated into a bunch of hopeless addicts...

i think i am done for awhile now. but when i come back here, i need to get high to deal with it all. i think i need to stay away.

misstree shifts in perspective are neccesary for more than two-dimensional vision.
drugs are a cheat code to perspective shifts.
what you do with it once you get there determines what you take out of the experience.
if you poke_smot and sit and drool at video games for a few hours, you're not taking a whole lot out of it.
if you poke_smot and wander around in the woods and talk to deer or spread out all your fabrics and sew someting or run around an amusement park with your friends, well, that's a bit more to bring home.
if you poke_smot and take a road trip with a tape recorder and a notebook on your lap, sorting out your life and tangenting wildly, occasionally noting a few words about how beautifully the moon silvers the cornfields or how the lights of a town shine like a river from the proper perspective, well, i consider that a damn good night.

that's part one. part two, it's slipslidey, it's releasing a little bit of "reality." each drug shoves in a different direction, fiddles with different setting on the internal control board. some up your social entertainment. (for me, booze and meth, though x also has its perks.) some are good for hedonistic experiences. some are good for deep-down hard core thinking (many of the hallucinogens are used for this, but like any other, you get out what you put in. when you talk to god, what do you say to him?)

for me personally, the draw for pot is relaxation and quieting the crunchies out of my brain when neccesary, for booze is looseness of brainspace and having fun with large numbers of brains, for hallucinogens is a chance to slip into the underbelly of "reality"'s workings and play by my own rules for a bit, with such wide-open eyes that all the patterns dance proper, and for the rest little different things.

epitome of soprano I get high around an octave above middle C. It's safe. It's non-toxic. But it may be somewhat squeaky. 050905

andru235 its been one year since i voluntarily quit. i hope to return to several years as a stoner in my later thirties, but by then how will i even find it? my circle of friends has declined arithmetically since 2000 and by the time i allow myself to smoke again, i will have -61 friends. oh, that alone will drive me to chemicals.

but seriously. last year i made a big, controversial sacrifice to advance myself with regards to my art, and while it seriously paid off for the art, the cost has been my social life and my high-life and, well, basically my life. it was suicide and suigeneris, all at once.

i look forward to getting high again, but i must wait a long time, first.

hsg The highest I've gotten is fully wanting even for a single instant to live.

It is sickness when it seems like a risk to waste effort.
