Mental Issues (HELP!!!)

Post by CaptainChronic001 » Mon Apr 05, 2010 2:46 am

I often experience a sense of Social Anxiety when I get stoned. Even though I loved being high, i feel as though i have to avt a certain way in front of people. I'm always worried about what people around me are thinking.... i feel as if they are looking at me and either laughing or talking shit. I honestly hate it. I don't get the feeling as bad when I use Visine, or Rhotos...

I try and try to just not think about it, but when i'm high around my friends that don't smoke its wayyy awkward. I just don't know what to say to them and feel like a fuckin retard.

I've been a consistant pothead since the age of 14, only having to quit a few times... (probation, EX-Girlfriend)....

How can i get these ridiculous feelings out of my brain.

I even started taking prozac for what i thought of as depression/ anxiety....

Acid used to play a huge role in my life as well. I was trippin basically every three days.... Ehhhh help me fellow stoners...

You gotta put yourself into a "I don't fucking care what people think about me" mindset

You're a stoner and who cares about people you don't know and will never see again

Dude, me too. I get the same way. Sometimes I think it's something in my subscious telling me that I shouldn't be around certain person. Like for instance, I have been hanging out this couple who fight all the time. I've known them forever but I always gets the weird feeling (especially when someone says something that I can't hear) that they are talking about me. This feeling only comes about when I am really really high. So when I smoke with them I only take little hits.

I wish I could help...I personally think it's not the type of thing someone can just turn off. Alcohol def makes it go away. :wink:

^I've had that before too man. Like I've been massively stoned and suddenly thought someone said something about me, and maybe they did but I've been too stoned to ask anything about it or do anything so you sit and wonder what it could've been about. Is it the way I was acting? am I not talking enough? lol, you could think all kinds of shit to yourself, but in the end it's pretty much just some strong weed you're smokin and it's all in your head. If those people didn't like you they wouldn't smoke with you. And if you don't like them then you have the power to not smoke with them either.

You just gotta smoke the weed and let it relax you. Try not to think of stupid shit like that and let the fun side of it take over.

I know exactly what you mean. If I'm quiet I will think they are talking shit because I'm not talking ,so I just sit really still...and wait like 30 minutes to announce that I want to leave.Usually because I'm afraid they will be angry that I want to leave. :lol:

I think that high anxiety stuff happens because I get really really high way too fast. I'm not a rotation type of person, I like to chill and babysit the pipe. Smoking with friends is fun but I am for sure at my most chill when I'm alone.

maybe you can save smoking only for times when you know it's going to be enjoyable and that it's going to make your experience more enjoyable.

Dude all these are awesome responses, like I know exactly what you guys mean about the whole thinking they're saying something about me when I can't here them.

But I like the comment about just letting time travel, I'm thinkin thats what I'm gonna do... And I guess if they can't accept me for who I am... Then FUCK EM.

I mean i guess its easier said than done, but all I can do is Try.

Thanks Everyone!

First thing you got to do is to ignore that kind of feeling. You're a pothead and should not care what other people would think. Even if you're high or not, they will still think that you will do silly thing because they once saw you high. The more you think about that situation, the more it will get into your head. It can cause you paranoia and depression.
