When I started smoking weed…
I began to lose everything, money, friends, and trust from my parents and my popularity. I realized it is not worth it to get high because you are putting so many things at risk, such as your social life and health.
I started smoking weed during my freshman year of high school. It started with just curiosity, but it quickly became a regular weekend activity. One of the older kids at school had sold me and my friends a dub. We were so eager to try drugs for the first time, so we met after school in the woods. I remember feeling tired and disoriented; not much happened. My friend said the first time you smoke you don’t feel anything, so the next weekend we bought a dime from the same guy and blazed up. This time it was a lot different. My vision became foggy, and I just felt high. The feeling is really impossible to explain. After this, I began smoking a dime bag every weekend.
My money ran out, and word got out that I was a pothead. I was screwed. Girls lost interest in me; my friends stopped hanging out with me, and I developed a reputation. I realized I was overdoing it when I bought a bong; it was a warning sign that I was making a dedication to be a frequent smoker.
I decided to quit, just like that. I sold my papers and pipes and just quit. It took a while for me to gain the respect back from my parents and friends, but eventually it all turned out ok. However, I still have a reputation, and trust me, that is really hard to get rid of.
In the end, getting high was great fun, but it really wasn’t worth it to ruin my social life. Plus, after I smoked, I would get a lot of pimples, and no one wants that. There are plenty of reasons why people do drugs, but none of them are legitimate. It causes more problems than it solves.
