i'd go along with burroughs' line at the end of naked lunch where he says it's just an enhancer, if you are feeling extrovert it will make you more extrovert, if your'e depressed more depressed, etc etc

Not for me. When I'm feeling extrovert (and drunk) weed will pull the ego rug from under my feet. Suddently you don't talk so loud suddenly you don't feel so proud. Terrible feeling. The worst.

if you're experiencing social anxiety anyway it will make you paranoid, if you're feeling curious and receptive you'll enjoy music on another level and so on. can you really say you've ever smoked up and it has changed your mood? not sure i can

Weed turns me into an extrovert kind of. Makes me very silly.

I'm scared of encountering people but if I start talking to someone when stoned I'm insanely charismatic, like a young Brando.

Absolutely. Every single time. I thought the change was the whole point.

i smoked a little bit of a spliff the last time i was on mushrooms and couldn't sleep for about 3 hours, having all sorts of 'interesting' insights and thoughts, then ended up writing a comprehensive 'to do' list on my phone til about 3am. was quite enjoyable for a bit, getting blitzes of thoughts, but then started doing my head in and i remembered why i stopped smoking weed... and most of the interesting thoughts turned out to nonsensical and embarrasing to read the next day

if you suffer from insomnia, does this mean you're simply not tired or does it mean you are tired but can't fall asleep? cos in the latter case it's also kinda impossible to do any sorts of activities like reading a book right?
I fall asleep and wake straight back up and then can't get off again. Sometimes I'm reasonably functional, but after an hour or so I'm in bits.

i guess i'd saY THAT the drink has stifled the social anxiety you would be feeling, but the smoking brings it out again but more so. i agree this is a horrible experience

This is really weird. I go straight into my shell. Can't talk. Can't project anything outward at all. Locked inside.

so you find that when this happens, you wake up next day with men and women ready to paint picassos?

It was so bad last year it was total non stop psychic attack. It's been a bit milder this year but still harrowing.

The thing is, atm this happens over and over again all night so it gets to like 6 o'clock and I've had a total of 15m of sleep and am completely frustrated as well as being zonked out of my mind. Looking after kids when I'm like this is superfun as you can imagine.

What I've noticed about doing weed recently is that it makes you dwell on every idea that comes into your head a bit longer, it also makes every thought feel like a eureka moment, meaning you end up thinking a lot of stupid ideas are important.

that must be terrible for your partner as well, assuming you sleep together. in fact, sleeping with another person kinda does make sleeping more difficult i think.
