ask for your money back, good 5h1t should have the exact opposite effect

on a more serious note, reliance on a drug for motivation to do anything is a very dangerous thing. To demonstrate this point in in the confines of a legal drug analogy, many people drink alcohol to enhance a good time- there is no problem with that, but some rely on alcohol to make a time good, and that is destructive.
Its a subtle difference in many ways, but it is vital to know which side of the line you are on with any substance.

from first hand acounts with weed, i must say that as for now i still cannot see any changes in my training.. if ever there are changes then it would come from cigarretes.. im saying i promote weed or anything but then again i am 18 yrs old so chances are any changes to my body have still yet to surface..

all im saying is that just dont smoke everyday and you should still be ok i think.. but dont take my word for it im just enjoying it as much as i can before i stop

I don't get it, why stop????

If there is nothing wrong with it then continue it forever. Don't be a quitter, nobody likes a quitter. Now if you deem that there is something wrong with it and this is the reason that you will quit in the near future, then why not quit today? Why continue doing something that has no positive means for you and is frowned on by society, is a nasty habit, stinks and prolonged use can lead to health risks and addiction? Are people that immature or uneducated that they think that "it can't happen to them?"

I guess we just have to let each live their own life how they feel BUT if one of these schmucks complains just once how crappy their life is and that they can't get any breaks in life and that they have so many bills that they can't make ends meet ... I will stick my foot in their ass and turn it side ways!!!!!


EDIT: Forgive my straight forwardness. I have seen no good come from drugs, especially seeing two friends waste away in life and eventually die due to drugs and alcohol. This is a sore spot for me and I come off probably too harsh. Then I work at a place that I know many people use and the majority have problems in their lives and are not smart enough to see where many of their problems stem from. My apologizes to anybody that takes offense to this.

no harm taken.. as far as i know is that this is just a phase in my life, who knows when ill stop it..
the sad truth is yes some people are unaware of its health risks and i have seen some people smoke everyday..
funny story, there was this one smoker who rolled with us for what around 10 mins and he just fainted and started barfing all over! afterwards he was all 'dude, ill just roll a j' i was happy that i am not in that kind of predicament!

i just make sure that i dont do it because it is a form of escape or something, that is, i beleive where the addiction comes from.. and yes intake can be controlled.. im planning to take a break off of it next week, let you guys know how long it goes

Still on the break?

I actually have a friend who smokes a bit every time before lifting weights. I guess it makes it more interesting... Personally, I don't think marijuana usage fries your brain, makes you a retard, kills you or ruins your life unless you thoroughly abuse it. Moderate, occasional, responsible use is mostly harmless. Like having a beer without the liver damage. This is a personal viewpoint however, and I respect others as long as they're based on some form of scientific evidence or personal experience.

Fun fact: when Bruce Lee was obduced, they found remains of marijuana in his stomach.

Good spot, CL. Smoking ANYTHING is stupid and harmful. Period.
