So to share my story briefly, about 2 and a half, almost 3 years ago, when I was 15 years old I smoked weed for the first time. I instantly got hit with DP and had it strongly for about 8 months. As it was starting to get better I decided I'd try it again and got put into an episode for another few months. All in all, I had DP strongly for about a year to a year and half. I still experience it very, very mildly but it's pretty much non-existent now. I turned 18 a few months ago and as you probably know, in your teenage years, it's around everywhere you go. I really want to try it again so I can feel what all my friends and girlfriend feel when they smoke together but obviously it's a little different for me. Any thoughts?

To be honest, I'd be blessed to be able to smoke weed again and get high like a 'regular' person, but with that being said with a condition like DP I would high recommend not doing it, let alone any other drug - it's just not worth the risk homie, that's just my opinion - In the end of the day it's your decision.

It actually makes me really mad when people smoke weed and have these kind of problems. As someone who experiences this shit, having never touched a drug in his life; it baffles me as to why somebody would intentionally put themselves through it.

You think people who get this from weed aren't mad at themselves? Most people who smoke weed have no idea what DP is, or what it's like. It's only after they get DP from a bad trip or something that they find out about DP and come here.

Absolutely, and I feel deeply sorry for anyone who suffers no matter what the circumstances. But it's not like the warning signs aren't around society for all to see, and people still choose to do it. At the end of the day it's their choice, but I find it deeply concerning that the op would choose to do it again even though they know the harrowing effects. That's what angers me, I wouldn't wish this on anyone, and if I get out of it, I will do everything in my power to make sure it never happens again! So why oh why would the op risk that because of a little peer pressure? At this point I find it hard to have sympathy for that person.

I think changing your human nature is wrong. i would never do it again if i got to choose. this world is not just right place for it. its so easy to get distracted here. and then you just loose yourself because everyone is different than you because you have weed brain. and you become stupid and start feel shame. i cannot talk for you but for me it was like this. especially if you are oversensitive. i wasnt appreciating my healthy self enough. using drugs makes your energy field damaged and weak. and then you get depression and you feel that everything is too much. you isolate from society. you feel dissapointed about life because you are not high anymore. and you just cant get back to this reality. you feel no resonanse anymore towards people because your state of being is now naturally higher than others. and here its so hard to keep it up. then you just become mad and people think your crazy. then you lose even more selfworth. you feel noone understands you anymore. everything has become boring. life seems meaningless. its scary to change your brain at first. i was terrified. now nothing seems exiting anymore. this is very negative post.. i just wanna try clear my mind.

Even one puff will relapse you so bad your head will spin. Don't even think about it. When I smell weed on the street nowadays I literally run. Sounds extreme but it is unfortunately the reality for people who are susceptible to DP.

Same for me when I relapsed - one bong rip and it came back much worse than the first time. And I was ONE HUNDRED PERCENT recovered. Weed is a killer. One of the worst things you could do if you have any history of DP.

From personal experience, if you get away with it at the time, which I have, you just end up not feeling high but more DP'd so it's a complete waste of time anyway, I don't get the anxiety from weed like I use to, I just get no pleasure and more floaty and I get off light, I am what i'd consider a good case which still doesn't make myself even want to touch it. Plus 8 months, well it takes a year or two but you turn over a new leaf, it's just not something you do anymore. Your mental health is much more important.

I'm yet to read a 'had DP, went back to playing with the devil, it was awesome and i've been smoking for 10+ years and never been burnt again' story. As much as i'd love that to be the case, it simply doesn't seem the case, so forget about it.

I was a stoner (not how i got DP either btw) and I realised from having to distance myself from that lifestyle how boring it actually is, you are constantly not dealing with your life and getting high, there is seriously so much more to life. When I go to parties, i roll for friends, as that skill never has left but it no longer phases me, however a small room with that smell, i can't stand it anymore... and i know people without DP who quit weed and gives them the same headache I get..

You'll move on.. or not take this advice and seriously wish you did have. It's defiantly an addiction whatever you think about it. Doesn't mean that sometimes I don't have the same notion, mine isn't as much I want to do it currently, it's I want to do it sometime in the future (5+ years) and enjoy it.. but i'll have to practice what I and so many people preach.

Anybody with any kind of mental health problems should NOT smoke weed, drink alcohol, eat a bad diet, live a sedentary lifestyle, take any kind of illegal mood altering drug or chemical and on top of all this should question why they feel the need to get out of their head in the first place...

Its plain and simple, Illegal drugs of all kinds are extremely addictive and dangerous...

There is only one direction in life you will go if you get involved with drugs.... "DOWN" ....You will end up mentally, physically, spiritually and financially in the preverbial gutter.....Ive never ever met a drug user of any kind (and i know many) that drugs havent impacted their life in a negative way....There are 3 places you are going if you get involved with drugs....Jail, Death or Insanity (Eventually all 3)

There is so much more to life than getting f*****g high....

Of course your maybe gonna say "But Im going to be careful and only use once in a while"......Absolute deluded thinking... Ive heard that line a million times...There is nothing good going to come from using drugs...

Stay away and find genuine friends with genuine interests....Avoid what I call " The drug buddies!!! "

This is Russian Roulette. Putin would be jealous.

Dude, you don't know how lucky you are to have had DP TWICE from pot and come back from it. I've seen so many stories where someone smoked pot, got DP, felt like hell and then the DP went away and they figured "ok I can smoke again" and BAM. long term dp. And they can't get out of it like they did before.

Is that what you want?

If you were deathly allergic to strawberries, would you eat them? Of course not. Even if your friends ate them and you felt left out, you still wouldn't eat them.

For right now, you are "allergic" to pot. Think of it that way. Maybe your friends are having fun, but maybe one of them will get DP. Or arrested. Or one of them will become so hooked on pot they have to go to NA meetings to get better. You haven't seen the end of their story.

Actually, if you feel the need to smoke so bad you're willing to risk DP for it, maybe a 12 step program is not such a bad idea. I went to one for eating disorders and it really helped me with my dp, strangely enough.

I would suggest you quit weed at least for ...eternity! From all the research and personal experience I have gathered, it's just not worth it. This weed-induced DP happened to you for a reason dude. Call it a sign, providence, miracle, coincidence, etc. The point is, soon after your first hit you experienced DP.

You are not very tolerant as weed induced DP on your first pull ever is highly rare; it usually takes excessive smoking. With this in mind, just think what could happen if you smoke again? Your DP could come back ten times worse! And yes, this can happen.

Don't mess around with your biochemical pathways! What you are asking for is a quick fix that could ultimately incapacitate you for a very long time.

You're gonna have to get around the idea that weed is out of the question. Bro, there are like so many things in life that are pleasurable that doesn't require drugs.
