Well old stoners, how long have you been smoking and what got you started?

    I'm toking for more then 20 years. More then half my life. Does this make me an old stoner? I'm still pretty young though, mid 30's....

    I started toking when I bought a baggie of White Widow from one of the dealers in school.

      I was a late bloomer. Started smoking at 22 when a chick broke my heart.

      Went to a stoner buddies house and asked him to "break my cherry".

      To his credit, he started me off slow. Handed me a one hitter and told me to, "take a hit and wait a bit. Let me know how it feels." So I did. Felt nothing. 15 minutes later, took another. Then another.

      "I don't think this is working. Let me see your bong."

      Pulled his 18" bong bone white, took it all in one hit, coughed my brains out for a solid 60 seconds, and was higher than "giraffe's ass" as Mike Epps put it.

      Spent the next 40 minutes drooling on myself while we watched videos on MTV (Remember when they played music videos? Yeah, I'm that old.), and I've been a stoner ever since.

      I even gave up alcohol several years ago. Do you know how hard that is for an Irishman?

        I started in 88 or 89 on the way to school. Got a ride with a friends older brother. I honestly had never thought anything about wether I wanted to or not before that. When they lit it up and passed it around it just made sense to take a puff.

          I had tried it several times in high school, but playing in the band, I didn't like the residue on the mouth piece. Plus, I didn't experience a high. So, it was Cold Duck at the end of a dirt road drinking junior and senior years 70-72.

          Was going to buy a Karmann Ghia from a guy nearby an air force base in college (small conservative town, the only dry county in the state) in Fall '72. He rolled a fatty (most likely leaf), and sitting in the passenger seat, I felt elevated off the seat. Yep, that was Euphoria!

          Ended up buying an '69 AMC Ambassador w/ louver back window and great sounding 8 track (Ha! Those were the days) with a 360 engine- more metal, as my dad said, in case of an accident. I liked it for it's 8 track!

          Not a daily smoker, but have been imbibing for 47 years. Had a few jobs where frequent random testing was done, so I would only smoke occasionally.

          Now it's 2 hits and I'm good unless it's a social function.

                Early 70s, went hand in hand with the draft and a war that was an equivalent of a stacked deck.

                  I was a 70s ...rebel without a clue. I was into Jimi Hendrix and rolling Stones and wore my hair long and played a black Les Paul knockoff. I started staying up late listening to music on headphones and starts going to sleep at school so the teachers assumed I was on drugs. The preps and goodie too shoes were bullying me for it and soon teachers were labeling me too.
                  Some of my friends in Drama club invited me to go to lunch with them and one lit up a number. I toked but didn't get high that time. I figure if I got the name I might as well play the game. On our next overnights speech tourney a dude named David fired one up with me in our room next thing I know he's naked and wanted a little more. I guess I was that cute?
                  I declined but I was definitely high that time. I remember watching Wild Cherry and Kansas on the Midnight special. Years later, married and with a kid...I quit after my daughter was old enough to ask what it was. By then I was not enjoying the high as much, maybe because the Advent of hybrids like skunk and Christmas tree . I wondered what was wrong with me but in truth I think the weed was changing. Giggle weed, sativa's and Columbian were gone and replaced with couch lock and heavy stone.
                  Fast forward to 2006, I am going through a bad divorce and I overdose on Lexapro by accident..I had serotonin syndrome including seizures diarrhea, fever and dystonias..... I made the mistake of quitting cold turkey. The dystonias stayed. After a week my wife ft a his of some good weed from my daughter's boyfriend and I smoked it. Instantly the tremors and twitching stopped. I went in a purge diet and exercise regimen.
                  A few year after that, I began to suffer from IBS and numerous other issues including acid reflux and insomnia. I rejoiced when Oklahoma approved medical marijuana. In 2018 I got my card and was amazed at how my insomnia, GERD and IBS improved! I am growing now and mixing strains with thc cbd and cbg to improve my health. Its a good time to be an old man.

                    since the late 70s.
                    a friend of mine's dad left his 'grass' and papers on top of his 'fridge.

                    i was amazed when I watched my buddy grab this bag of 'grass' out and roll it up like a master. we couldnt have been more than 13 or 14 at the time.
                    i choked my ass off on it and it didnt do much.


                    a few months later I was introduced to a ---sick--- 4 chamber Graffix brand bong and the rest is history. i was wound pretty tight as a kid and when I finally felt how magical cannibus is, and how it gave me that inner peace I could never find.... i was hooked ever since, although, I get just as much joy helping veterans with PTSD and those undergoing chemo'theapy' as I do smoking it myself.


                    its never harmed anyone and im glad to see the states' attitudes to it finally gaining a semblance of reason and sanity.


                    im pretty old but seeing how many of the younger sect are keeping it alive and relevant brings me joy.


                    now, if we could just find a way to keep them all off the fentanyl, cocaine, crystal, and heroin..........


                    much love for everyone on our team.
                    peace and love.

                      First toke with 14, daily bong smoker since 19. so a total of 25 years smoking. The first time real high(rose wood bowl full of hash for 3ppl) i was 100% sure this is my drug.
                      But i smoke with tobacco. Trying to give off that habbit but max 3 days tobaccofree and i buy a pack.
                      Weed pure hits harder, better, is more mood enhancing, ... . all of the negative side effects like reduced motivation or feeling like stoned(old testament punishment) in the morning i get from mixing weed with tobacco.
                      Also the extreme craving for a smoke only happens with tobacco. One day no bong and i used to climb the walls(bong is my only nicotine source). When i'm total off the nicotine(9-14 days) i have no problem with being sober for days.
                      Was off the nic for more than a year and started again- stupid me.

                          It was 1988 and I decided that I was going to smoke some of my moms weed she always kept on a tray underneath the couch. I toked a bowl of brick weed, but it seemed like it did nothing until the next day when I did it again. This time I was ripped out of my own little mind, and it was just not obvious until I was standing in a alleyway with a big paper sack filled with over $10 worth of junk food and a lot of candy. It was the moment when I understood why my parents always smoked herb and the pinnacle of my own interest in the plant itself. Having seen plenty of plants outside growing up I was adamant that I could grow those seeds on moms tray. I watched this happen many times when the pot was declared worthy enough for seed selection. Well I was but 13 when my mom found out that her stash was dwindling regularly and it was me, she was okay with it knowing that I was a troubled kid and that it could be a lot more beneficial for me then anything in pill form that had been prescribed by the doctors for attention deficit and hyperactivity. She was right and I never took any of these drugs pushed on me growing up. In fact, growing since the early age of fourteen had a lot more therapeutic value then I knew, but mom knew. Looking back I have to say that it has been a great journey through the years with the plants after 30+ years and I still find that I am constantly learning something new, but only from the plants do I really learn anything. Everything else from the forum to the printing press is just entertainment in my world.
