Hello, First post on this site. It's going to be a long one too (sorry). I'm married with no kids (and it will stay that way). I recently started smoking again after a long hiatus. I used to smoke (both cigs and pot) regularly during my college years (I just turned 36). I'd smoke at least 3 times a day and was for the most part high constantly for a good year or so. I then met my current wife who absolutely hated the stuff. So I decided to stop smoking cigarettes and pot. I've stayed cigarette smoke free minus the occasional puff from a friends smoke once in a blue moon. Since weed has started becoming more accepted and now that states are starting to legalize recreational, I wanted to get back in to it. I currently don't live in a state that it is legalized rec but I think it's inevitable. I had a discussion with her and she was very reluctant but she ultimate said she was OK with it (but she still really hates it). She seems to think that smoking weed will eventually kill me. I beg to differ. But I started back up earlier this year. I don't smoke anywhere near as much as I did when I was in my early twenties. An 8th of weed (or a regular pill bottles worth) last me close to half a year (roughly 5-6 months). I will come home from work and take a pinch and pull a waterfall (if that is what it is still called) from a 12 ounce water bottle with a homemade bowl using a socket wrench piece (I know, very weak but it gets the job done). I take usually two rips and I am good for the evening. I even get a lot of house work done simply because I am relaxed and feel great. For the past year I had been doing this at least 5 times a week. Probably pretty close to almost everyday. I'd be around my wife and she knew it but she started getting very irritated about it even though I was helping out around the house quite a bit and not really doing anything bad. This past November we had a huge argument over it. She thinks I am killing myself. That I am a heavy user. I try and tell her for the amount that I am using and since I no longer smoke cigarettes that I am going to be fine. But let's be honest, I have no fucking clue. I just "feel" like I am really not overdoing it. We agreed upon allowing me to continue to smoke but only twice a week. I feel this is a little harsh but my wife allows me to do plenty of shit that most other guys wives wouldn't get away with. But, maybe I am a whipped bitch and I just don't know it. That's a whole different discussion though. So the bottom line is what do you guys feel is consider heavy smoking? Do you feel that if I smoked what I had described above 3 or 4 times a week I'd be OK? I know the jury is out on what long term effects marijuana use can have but I wanted to see if long time users or "heavy" users have had any bad health problems from this. Thanks for your time (and sorry for all the parenthesis).
