DP/DR can be a pleasant state?

I don't want to cause misconception and hostility, but I need to know if other have this same thing with me.

I remember that when I first noticed it (around 2000, 2001) it was while returnng home, after a night-walk. I noticed that I wasn't feeling "here", like some part of my mind was really really tired. I didn't mind. In fact it was a pleasant state. Like a break from the things that bugged me.

I don't know what does this mean for me. Did anyone had this?

It's just scary sometimes to me. A few of my friends are like "Damn dude, I wish I felt like I was in a mild trip all the time..." and I'm like no it gets old quick...
Plus it's not even like that most of the time... many times I just feel like I'm disappearing or something and I feel like my memory is diminishing.
Yeah, no shit. But like they say, good things come out from bad things. I no longer smoke marijuana, drink alcohol, use any other drugs (which cover many) smoke cigarettes, or even drink caffeine. This is surely an invitation to good health. After DP/DR, I'll be free.
Thanks a lot, mcsiegs. Smoking herb was like the first thing I knew I had to quit because It would always lead to a panic attack. I mean, give someone who thinks too much something that makes them think deeper and you have utter fear. Some might disagree with me on this but when I got high it was too much for my anxious brain.

Second, I put caffeine and highly sugared products in the same boat. I love sugars, especially pop. Caffeine just made this experience 10x worse. I eventually had to quit smoking cigs too because they were also a stimulant and made things worse. These things are only setbacks. I would do anything to get rid of this crap.
