Seriously, if they aren’t asking you to try it and you think you might lose your parents trust why try it? But it’s your choose you know what’s right and wrong for you.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

Re: Should i try pot? - March 8th 2010, 02:53 AM

Hey there,

I think the fact that you are here asking us shows that you are uncertain about whether or not you want to do it. And, to be honest, I don't think you should try anything that you are uncertain about. When you go into something with an air of uncertainty it leaves a lot of room for regret. You know?

I know what it is like to want to try something but you have many years ahead of you to do something like that. Years, months, weeks to think about it and all the consequences and what not.

One thing I would suggest is talking to your parents about it. You might be surprised by their response. Instead of fearing losing your parents trust or jumping into smoking pot and keeping a secret from your parents talk to them and let them know how you feel. They might understand where you are coming from and support you. Not to say they are going to cheer you on but just let you know that if you were to try something like that they would not shun you.

Here is the thing, pot is always going to be there so don't rush into it. I know that for the longest time I had wanted to try pot but I was never sure and I always felt uneasy about it. That uneasiness led me to the decision that I did not want to try it. Well, just recently I tried it because the uneasiness went away and it was something I felt I was ready for. To be honest pot isn't all that great and it is not like I plan on doing it again. But, I still believe that it is something you have to be ready for.

Best of luck,

Jenna

We don't advertise or encourage drug use on Teenhelp. But the choice is up to you whether you decided on it. As already stated, your friends aren't forcing or asking you to try it and if you don't want to lose your parents trust, the answer is obvious. But in the end, the choice is up to you.


I hope you have the strength to start all over again.- F.Scott Fitzgerald

If theres any doubt in your mind, don't do it. You might end up regretting it.

There's many pros and cons to smoking weed. Check out the other threads on it and don't seek out other people's opinions on whether or not you should try drugs. This is your decision, and yours alone. We don't even know your parents. We can't make proper advice/judgments on what you should and shouldn't do or what your parents will think if we don't know you. If you and your parents have a solid trust, I think the best thing to do is tell them you've experimented. They may get upset at first which is completely understandable, but believe me. From experience, it's ALWAYS better to let your parents know then to get caught doing something stupid behind their backs. They were young once too. Go to Erowid.org and NO governmental drug websites. They are chock full of bullshit. Erowid is wonderful. Be careful and know what you're doing.

my point(if u didnt figure it out) is that everything is potentially dangerous, hell we do activities on a daily basis that have been proven to be dangerous to our health and yet ppl still get scared cuz weed MIGHT be dangerous. im not gunna sit here and tell u to go light up but i will say dont let the ppl who drank the DARE cool-aid tell u what to do. at the same time dont let ur local drug-dealer tell u it will fix all ur problems. usuing an herb like marijuana is a personal choice no1 can or should make it for u. it u want to try it ask 1 of ur friends ehos been usin a while to show u the ropes if u dont wanna try it then thats ur choice too and dont let any1 convince u otherwise

Just to note, this is a completely generalized experience. This is absolutely not the case. Pot works differently on everybody. What you just described is the stereotypical movie high.

Re: Should i try pot? - March 28th 2010, 02:52 AM

I didn't try weed for the first time untill the end of grade 11 because I didnt think that I was ready, my family has a history of addiction and I didn't want to fall into the same trap they did.

Once I did try it I was slightly underwhelmed, honestly it is not that great (this is coming from a guy who smokes everyday) the best way to look at it is as an expensive hobby.

You won't "trip out" or anything but I don't care what anyone says weed is not good for you either (aside from certain situations.. glocoma etc). The real issue is that you could be doing something constructive with your time instead of sitting on a couch saying "Dude! wait...wat?"

If you do think you are ready then just remember that everything in life should be taken in moderation.

exactly! in the long run, pot does nothing but bad. in the short it's nice, but in the long run it will ruin your body and ruin your life. and like you said, you don't want to lie to your parents and ruin your relationship with them.
