Why I Don’t Smoke Weed

I don’t smoke weed ’cause it make me shh-noid – 21 Savage

There are a couple of reasons why I refuse to smoke weed. I haven’t touched marijuana in years. But, I haven’t always been against it.

I used to smoke when I was younger. I enjoyed it when I was young and dumb because I had no responsibilties.

I could just get high with my friends and chill; eat some junk food and watch weird videos.

It was actually quite enjoyable back then.

But as I got older I started despising it.

The first reason is because of how lazy it made me.


I know it sounds very cliche, but I stopped smoking mostly because of how lazy it made me.

I never got anything done because I just wanted to sit around and watch movies and chill.

It also just led to very bad habits.

I would always just eat a bunch of junk food. I loved eating candy and chips when I was high.

But one bad habit led to another. Soon I would be too lazy to workout. Would be too lazy to do school work. And so on.

Using it as a Crutch

Another thing I realized is people like using it as an excuse.

“Sorry bro, I was too high”

“Idk man, I’m just high lol”

“I’m way too high for this”

Being high was an excuse for avoiding responsibility.

Instead of taking responsibility for your bad habits you just blame it on the weed.

People like to just use it as an excuse for being lazy. People don’t like knowing they are in control of their life, and that their happiness relies solely on their actions.

Instead they like to blame external forces for their problems; and being high is a great excuse for avoiding anything.

Escaping Reality

When you use it as a crutch for so long, you begin to become unsatisfied with your life.

You have been avoiding responsibility for so long that you get nothing productive done.

So then you use weed to escape reality. You don’t want to face your problems. You’d rather just get high and have an excuse for not getting anything done.

You’d rather get stoned and watch a movie and eat junk instead of finishing your homework and going to the gym.

Now you have a “valid” excuse. You’re just way too high bro.


The final reason is a factor caused by all the other reasons.

Smoking weed just makes me super paranoid and anxious now.

I haven’t done it in years, but the last few times I did, I was just super uncomfortable.

I could literally just feel it dumb down my brain.

I realized how lazy and unproductive I was being. I realized how stupid I looked and felt, and it would give me super bad anxiety.


I don’t think weed is a bad thing. It has a lot of benefits.

But just like anything, if you use it too much or you use it for the wrong things, it can have a lot of negative effects on your life.

I personally despise it and it is not for me.

If you feel the same way but aren’t able to stop, hit me up. I will give you some advice.

Stay lit.
