Weed Addictive? - June 9th 2009, 09:21 PM

Hey,

Is Weed Addictive?

My sisters are smoking weed in the room next to mine. When ever I study with the window up i can smell it!!!

I get pissed off.

I tell them to fuck off i dont want my clothes to smell like scum.

I told them they are addicted to it...

They said no.

But I dont believe them. They smoke weed, alone in there room(not together) Wtf is the point of smoking weed.

I think drug users are weak in the mind, no will power what so ever.

If u say its a stress reliever.. Well then its addictive. It just means the drug users depends on this substance to relieve stress which also means they lack selfknowledge and the ability to handle stress.

I understand idiots like to smoke weed cuz its funny with a bunch of losers(friends). but in my books thats stupid. Pointless, harmful and expensive.

I rather work towards my degree, make money and have a rich sex life.

Weed is not physically addictive like cigarettes or alcohol however, you can become psychologically addicted/dependant. I would like to stress that not everyone will become psychologically addicted and generally it seems that the ones who are have either smoked it a lot for years or have "addictive personalities". I believe them when they say they're not addicted.

And people can still smoke weed, work towards a degree, make money and have a rich sex life at the same time. Many of the most intelligent and reliable people I know indulge in it. And please remember that your opinion is not the be all and end all of everything.

As for why people smoke weed. Why do people drink alcohol? Sociability, fun, relaxation (which does not necessarily point to poor stress management techniques) etc etc etc. Of course some people smoke it for the wrong reasons but that does not mean that every person who smokes it does.

Maybe if you talked to them sensibly, maturely and in an informed manner about it rather than telling them to "fuck off" and describing them as "losers" you might get somewhere towards a diplomatic compromise.

Ok seriously look weed is not addicting and im not telling you to do it but dont judge people just because they smoke weed. I know ALOT of people that are great people and have great lives that smoke weed like jack said. So to your no question no weed is not addicting. But dont classify all people who smoke weed saying (It just means the drug users depends on this substance to relieve stress which also means they lack selfknowledge and the ability to handle stress.I understand idiots like to smoke weed cuz its funny with a bunch of losers(friends))

Weed IS addictive. Just not physically, like Jack said. Therefore you can feel the need to smoke some, but your body will not have withdrawal symptoms such as with nicotine or alcohol, where with alcohol sometimes the withdrawal symptoms can be deadly.

I suggest you take your work and so forth perhaps to library or coffee shop where it sounds like you could get more done there.

Weed can be mentally addictive for some, but it's not physically addicted meaning you don't get withdrawals. If they are smoking like, EVERY night completely alone, then maybe you should ask why they do it. That's when it could be something to worry about.
I have to say, you should respect other peoples choices to smoke. Smoking weed doesn't not make someone any less intelligent, a 'loser' or an 'idiot'. Just because you've decided not to, doesn't make you superior.

It's extremely rude and immature of you first off to call people idiots for doing something you don't agree with and blatantly don't even know anything about. This is a simple question you could've answered yourself by googling it, but what do I know? I'm an idiot..
