More chest colds Short term Effects Hi, My Name is Dave and I Was a Pothead
Most teens don’t believe that marijuana can be addictive – but Dave W. has experienced otherwise. Trying pot in high school soon led to an addiction that was ruining his life. He was smoking multiple times a day, buying and selling it to his friends and rapidly losing his parents trust. In the following interview with The Partnership, Dave tells us why marijuana isn’t just a harmless plant. I smoked pot for the first time the summer after my sophomore year of high school. It was a family friend’s birthday party and he had a bunch of guys over.I think I was just looking for a new experience. I had heard about it, but didn’t have too many friends who were doing it. It wasn’t necessarily the cool thing to do – I guess it was mostly out of curiosity and for something new to try. I don’t think I got high by the drugs.Acceptance was a big part of my using.I started to do worse and worse in school – I didn’t care. I got a 2.4 my first semester – my parents weren’t thrilled, but I shook it off and didn’t really think about it. I thought that as long as I did halfway decent and left school with a diploma, I was fine. I could get high all the time and do less work than my peers and still pass. I wasn’t doing homework, I was sleeping through classes, pushing off work till the last minute. It was always hanging over my head – so I just got high again and again so that I wouldn’t think about it. School work was pushed aside so that I could go downtown at one in the morning to Alphabet City to pick up more drugs. REAL LIFE. Real People. Their Stories.
