Example text

You’re out of control; then you have to smoke not to get high, but just to maintain a feeling of normalcy. ” And then you have to inject more and more to maintain yourself at that point. You can end up supporting a very expensive habit. So many young people who smoke pot heavily have come to me knowing that the drugs were affecting them and asking for help. They’ve been told that marijuana is OK, that it’s not addictive and doesn’t do any harm. But their experience is different. I’ve had people tell me that they can’t think, they can’t really control themselves, and they seem to flip back into feeling high when they haven’t been smoking.

You smoke another, and you start getting a little bit high. It’s very easy, no big jolts, and you come back down again. No adverse effects, no problems (that you are aware of). You might have gotten just a little high and found it sort of pleasant, so you try it again some time. ” Maybe you start to lose your balance and your perspective, and you put it down and don’t smoke anymore. But suppose, for whatever reason, that you continue to smoke pot and you smoke it more often and smoke more of it.

It probably won’t do anything much for you; it will probably be a nothing. You might feel a little nause­ ated, but not much. You smoke another, and you start getting a little bit high. It’s very easy, no big jolts, and you come back down again. No adverse effects, no problems (that you are aware of). You might have gotten just a little high and found it sort of pleasant, so you try it again some time. ” Maybe you start to lose your balance and your perspective, and you put it down and don’t smoke anymore.
