Smoking weed, I declined many social engagements in high school and college because I was against drugs, including alcohol. The last year of college was a blast, smoking on the way to school, hot boxing during breaks, and I got far better grades. I went from hating school, to enjoying lectures. I'm still a teetotaler, but I smoke daily now.

Everybody is different.

I take stimulants and it calms me down.

stimulants
calms me down

i.e. I drink coffee. I stop being jittery.

There's an upper limit though. Too much and I start getting the normal effects.

You should be careful, you are at a much higher risk of developing various types of mental illness as a daily smoker. from bipolar disorder to schizophrenia - debilitating paranoia to severe depression. it will literally creep up on you and destroy your life, so stop pretending that it is candy and pushing that propaganda.

here are decades of scientific research on the subject for you to downvoat and ignore because i didnt participate in the circle jerk.

It's true that daily cannabis use can increase your chances of developing different problems, just like daily alcohol consumption can. But trying to convince people of that isn't going to happen with that attitude of yours, or linking to a bunch of articles that are borderline scientific misconduct.

Go on pubmed and find an article about MDMA, and I'll start tearing it apart explaining to you why giving pigs 50 times doses of it doesn't prove shit, or denying them access to water in a heated room while they are intoxicated, repeatedly redosing them for 24 hours and then finding some slight activation of heat shock proteins in astrocytes.

I really would love to see some unbiased research, but sadly that's a very very rare thing to find in scientific litterature, especially when it comes to topics such as drugs which are heavily influenced by political agendas.

Hey 9-11 you're an autistic fucking retard.

Proof: "It is also known that not everyone who uses cannabis, even at a young age, develops a psychotic illness. The available research shows that those who have a family history of a psychotic illness, or those who have certain characteristics such as schizotypal personality, or possibly have certain types of genes, may increase the risk of developing a psychotic illness following the regular use of strong cannabis."

From your own source, you still participated in the circle jerk, you just wanted to be in the middle of the bukkake.

If your family has a history of an illness, weed will bring it out. Its better to be aware of whats happening to you and treat it then hide it in the back of your closet in your head. Sorry for the language, I spent too much time on mongolian imageboards

this 'higher risk' is because cannabis is a illict drug that is found more prevalent in illict activity that is associated with-- mental illness.

cannabis is more benign than coffee and although its a drug and will fuck you up, if you are not a self-indulgent asshole its safer than many-- drugs. so what i mean to say is,, its a drug and compared to many drugs like tylenol or caffine its safety record is pretty high. but you gotta be smart, and not a dumbass. being smart means realizing drugs are better off left to the side. like many aspects of life, self-suffecientcy is one thing considered.

and that schizophrenia you mentioned is shit- people medicate pre conditions which are, conditions. im talking about a preschizophrenic person. pyscmeds use are lower in cannabis states so that shows a far better metric on the matter and its better proven.

i write like shit

Checking my bank account and finances regularly. I used to just avoid it like it would go away or something. Saving and spending wisely are much easier when you are on top of your finances.

Yea it's amazing not having to put up with toxic people.

Get them out of your life and you will feel much more relaxed. It's worth it.

Actively managing my life. That includes calculating bills months out, planning purchases, managing my schedule down to 5 minute increments... Optimizing daily and weekly activities, planning my sleep schedule, calculating daily food and nutrient intake. It completely changed my life for the better.

Start small, just focus on a few things, whatever you are weakest in or is the most pressing thing that needs to be dealt with. For me, I started with my sleeping/day schedule because I commute slightly over two hours a day to work. Settle into that. Get used to planning things out in advance and how to make a plan that you can actually follow. That is the hardest part. Most people don't take into account all of the little things. In personal financial planning, the daily differences in how much gas they need, they extra item at lunch... In keeping a schedule, the amounts of time a day they spend on bathroom and personal hygiene activities, etc. Those seemingly small things that occur often are what will break your planning, and they have to be adequately accounted for. Once you've realistically pinned down those 'inconsequentials' and accounted for them in your planning it becomes much easier to work your plan, and everytime you do it provides reinforcement to continue. Once you've successfully managed one area of your life start setting up timetables to accommodate projects to include more in your planning and scheduling. Make sure your planning continues to be based on real information, and make sure you give yourself enough time to complete each project. Once most things are on the books you can start looking at the scheduling and planning and figure out where you can increase efficiency. Once again, create a project with a definite goal and allow yourself adequate time to achieve whatever it is you're trying to do. Always allow for buffers to account for at least partial failure. In no time you won't know how to function without the system, and it will have vastly improved your quality of life.
