    ^ all of those described are for users with insufficient tolerance to the cannabinoids. It doesn't apply to regular users, who become highly resistant to the negative effects, especially paranoia and the perception problems.

    I'm not trying to irrationally defend smoking, I just think that unless you're learning a new language or studying calculus, or need to take a drug test, there's no real incentive to quit....

    But i guess quam didn't ask for that so i'll stop on that note GL on quitting.

    Cool Reefer Madness

    It is also:

    Distorted perception
    Difficulty with thinking and problem solving
    Loss of coordination
    Increased heart rate
    Anxiety, paranoia and panic attacks


    Oh & don't forget, hormones ---> screwy

    "...marijuana ... In men it decreases the level of testosterone. This could sometimes lead to the enlarging of breasts."

    "Marijuana has the opposite effect on the female hormonal system....increases [testosterone] in women."


    "..marijuana also has an adverse affect on the sperm in a man. Usage of this drug can lead to a low sperm count and an increase in the number of immature and abnormal sperm that is produced. Today marijuana is one of the main causes of infertility in males....Marijuana can also play havoc with the female reproductive system. "

    Yay, it's reefer madness!

    Yes, a reefer is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, the hope of the hopeless and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the dope of the people.

    That's why you're having problems with this. I'll put it this way - they may not percieve their own usage as causing them problems, but you are percieving it as causing you problems. Something is stopping you from asserting your own individual needs and preferences and causing you to succumb to peer group pressure to do the same as they do. Is it mere habituation, fear of causing offense, fear of losing friends, an unconscious desire to abdicate responsibility for your own actions (because a part of you does want to take it still), the desire to participate in a shared activity (conforming to group norms)? What, exactly? And trust me, if they judge your worth by your willingness to share their own vices they are not worth having - you can find better friends.

    Uuuh... just say no? If they're proper friends, they won't give a shit if you smoke or not.

    Marijuana has no addictive qualities. Going cold turkey is incredibly easy, unless you're built up some sort of psychological addiction to it.

    I used to smoke a lot, but I wasn't psychologically dependent on it or anything, I wasn't the type who had to smoke at work or wake n bake. I started to feel like an idiot around other people when I smoked so I pretty much just stopped cold turkey. It's alright every now and then, but I don't buy it anymore and just say no thanks when people try to pass it to me. If you don't want to smoke then don't! A few questions for you. How often do you do it? Do you depend on it? Are you using it to self medicate?

    Actually everything in quotes are the results of regular, long time use.

    I imagine the way you would do it would be quite similar to quitting smoking cigarettes.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?
