Why are you saying "weed does this, weed makes you do that" as if it's anything but your opinion? Marijuana is like anything else....take it to extremes and it's likely to impact your life negatively. It doesn't make you any more or less than what you already are. Your examples make it appear as if you smoke a joint and instantly become betaman. Sounds to me like male hamstering....blaming the weed instead of yourself for your poor decisions.

my 2 cents

Yep. Weed, television, internet porn, junk food, video games... they can all draw you in if you let them.

I have not had one regret about quitting.

I treat it like wanking off, sure it has it's place, it was fun in high school, but what's the point when I could be training, reading, fucking some idiot senseless with all this new found energy and drive.

We burn the fat of our souls...

I think if you can smoke a brick and still function and actually attain your goals, then it's irrelevant. Likewise, if smoking it makes you skip workouts, not talk to people, not go to class or fuck up at work, then yes it can ruin you.

All things in moderation, and know your vices well.

As long as it doesn't get in the way of self improvement I don't see an issue.

[–]williesmokes9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I think people need to stop asking if this or that makes you whatever. You make you who you are. If any type of substance can sway that one way or the other then you're not your own man.

[–]wimmyjales1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Damn. Well said. I like the concept that some of the more seasoned members of this sub espouse, which is that the goal of defining yourself is key even if it doesn't fit the model of TRP exactly.

[–]Dr_HoaxArthurWilmoth2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I think that this is your opinion, based on a bunch of guys you used to get high with turning into a bunch of bitches.

Everything in moderation. If calling people who occasionally imbide in recreational drugs, stoners, helps to justify your life choices, more power to you.

I don't look for girls to "enable" my "habit". Weed is not some evil soul crushing drug, anymore than a bottle of wine is.

Everyone has different limits. I just don't have the time to get high much anymore. But when I do, I don't need to hide it from my friends and women.

this is no different than when sheltered conservative parents say that weed leads to harder drugs.

It all just depends on the person you are. If you're a lazy guy, it will just make you enjoy being lazy even more. If you're a guy who has his shit together, then a little pot will be hours of fun before you get back to your real life.

I smoke weed literally every single night. Never missed a day in the gym, 7 days a week I squat literally every single day before my actual workout, read books for 2 hours in the day and draw in my free time. nothing makes you anything, it's you. If you can control your self enough you can do whatever you like as long as you don't overdo it. Once you notice it's getting in the way of your goals you drop it or try to smoke a little less.

edit- it also really comes in handy if you're bulking.

Regular use of marijuana turns you into a loser. It zaps your motivation, drains your energy levels and omits any social awareness.

[–]wimmyjales10 points11 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

I couldn't disagree more. If used as a tool, weed can absolutely be an asset. If you don't go out of your normal frame of mind by way of some form of mindfullness on a regular basis, you become like an untested bridge built rigid and stiff that crumbles at the first storm that blows through. I think as long as you aren't using it as a means of escaping responsibility, it's not only fine but is quite a useful means of introspection.

I haven't seen weed in three years.

[–]ThreeEyez1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Depends on the person. I love Mary right now. But this a 21 yr old talking lol. I'm sure i'll grow out of it

[–]Squeezymypenisy1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

It's pointless to talk about. Like alcohol it is just another consumption for pleasure. Use it moderation or don't use it all. It really doesn't matter. Some like it. Some don't. Who are we to judge what a man does in the walls of his own home? Unless he is deliberately harming somthing let him do what he wants.

[–]watersign2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

it does lower testosterone levels i believe. when i smoked alot i wasnt as interested in girls and was generally just not interested in alot of things.

[–]gaimergabe2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Weird. Most people I know that do it get super horny. Heck I only do it when I watch a movie and literally the first decently hot chick to pop on the screen I feel the need to just fuck her in the pussy.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

The solution is to use steroids so it all balances out.

[–]watersign1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

i knew people who would do steroids and smoke weed to put themselves to sleep

[–]1raceAround1260 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Weed is a big bone of contention on TRP.

If I posted, "I fap too much", "I play video games a lot" or "I really love this one girl and have oneitis", I'd get told to cut that shit out and a virtual slap in the legs.

Say anything about weed and you have the hoards skipping out to defend it vehemently like you're a bad guy. Sounds like fat acceptance to me!

The reality is that the people I encounter who are weed smokers are not functional yet claim to be and are a nightmare to involve in anything. Personally, I don't think weed smokers have a defense outside hamstering.

In many body building circles, where performance enhancing drugs are used, marijuana replaced alcohol, as it does not interact with other drugs, affect the liver or kidneys, and users can avoid pesky hangovers.
GhB was initially used as a sleep aid for bodybuilders, until forcey fun time idiots starting dosing chicks with it. Now, the legal penalty for possession and stigma of GhB is outweighs the benefits. Marijuana has stepped in in the form of edibles for this drug.
The functional marijuana users you meet don't boast of their use. You have probably encountered dozens of weed smokers and have no idea.
Marijuana use as a sleep aid or recreational drug is not the same as fat acceptance or hamstering. You're not a bad guy, you're just ignorant and make poor correlations/arguments.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
