My experience with weed started off with a pretty good one, and have been a terrifying one ever since. The first time I got high, I felt really good and felt like I was living in a new world. I was enjoying alot about it, until it hit me.

I started to get panic attacks, where I was constantly aware and conscious of what was happening around me. It came to a point where I was thinking really hard, how ppl were watching me or thinking about what I was thinking about, and blacked out. From then on, everytime I smoke even a joint, I get the anxiety feeling. Even after a hit or two, I can already start feeling the weed affecting how I think. This is a scary experience, and I have stopped smoking ever since.

The bad part is, this feeling has been stuck with me even when I am sober. I have been getting anxious feelings even when I'm not smoking, and have affected my life drastically. I feel like I've been experiencing depression. I'm sure this is a phase, and hopefully I can get over it soon, as ppl have written that they got better after a while. But until then, I'm not gonna be smoking anymore weed.
