    marijuana and social anxiety

    I first noticed when I was younger that cannabis made me get severe social anxiety. I may have already had social anxiety before I started smoking. I don't remember having the severe social anxiety the first time I smoked it. Then lately I have been thinking that it has caused general anxiety as well. It may have even caused me to lose sleep, though I'm unsure if it's me or the marijuana, or the strain. I want to know the reason why. Maybe I do too much, or I need to consume it in a different way.

    I have to say also that yesterday I tried smoking in the morning and no more than 2 hits, and that was it for the day. I slept better than I had in a long time, I was a bit excited to see it work but I did fall asleep, though I woke up later it was only to use the restroom (maybe a light sleep also, who knows) but to fall asleep so quickly as I did last night was great. Usually an effect of weed will stay with me throughout the entire day.. until maybe I take a nap or something during that day, much later after I smoke. So I guess this effect was enough to make me sleep.

    Another thing that I want to note also is that from the times that I ingested marijuana without smoking (maybe not vaporizing though) it made me feel less social anxiety and anxiety in general. I'm not sure if this way will help me sleep though, because it's a different effect when ingested this way. I know my "english" sucks, ...

    whatever, I just might need to maybe experiment with it if I want to use it medicinally. I guess.

    As to the social anxiety: maybe I had a bad social experience when I smoked weed with others younger. I also remember that the first couple times that I smoked I didn't feel so anxious. Maybe until someone noticed how "stupidly relaxed" I seemed when high maybe made me feel somewhat self conscious after that. Maybe it's the "phobia" in general that the public has of marijuana, which makes me feel uncomfortable while high, or is itjust me?

    SAD and weed

    Yea I have social anxiety disorder to, its a pain isn't it? I know, and it has made me more self-conscience as well when i smoke. But sometimes if I just relaz and not worry then ill be fine. I would recommend you learn to control your anxiety and be able to have it under control when you smoke. Mixing mental illness (which anxiety is) and a mind altering substance is dangerous to your mental health unless you know what yur doin. Just try to stay relaxed and enjoy the high and releaize its a disorder not all of your conserns about your apprearance are real ,there just products of anxiety. Oh and everone looks a little stupid when there high its to be expected and your english is good probubly better than some americans even.

    It seems like this only thing this thread has to do about marijuana is the title. You don't seem to have much of a problem. Just because you don't want to have a girlfriend (that's what it seems like) doesn't mean you have a problem. I'm the type of person that like to be able to do what I want to do when I want to do it -- and to be honest, it's really not that much. I don't like to be set on other people's schedules and that's almost how I feel about girlfriends.
    I feel like if I have a girlfriend, I'll always have to be doing something when she wants to do it.. like I have to call her, have to hang out with her, have to do this or that.
    Honestly, I'm not too sure what your problem is here. I would say as long as you are happy with your situation, dont be all that worried about it. If you want a girlfriend, it seems like you can easily get one. If you dont want a girlfriend yet, don't worry about it. Dont let society pressure you into things you arent ready for yet. I'm guessing you are still fairly young and have plenty of time left. Do what you want for now, whatever makes you happy. You have enough time for everything else serious in life.
