I have smoked quite a lot in the past but have currently stopped. The reason was was a combination of becoming sick of it a bit and also I’m trying to deal with something difficult and painful in my life right now and I don’t think smoking to distract myself is a healthy way of dealing with it.
The decision to smoke is a very personal one. I don’t think cannabis is very harmful to your body, but it can be psychologically unhealthy depending on your personality and what stage of your life you are at. Ask yourself why you smoke. Do you do it because you actually enjoy it? Or because your friends do it and its a way of socialising? Or some other reason? Does smoking stop you from doing other things or becoming other things that you would like to?
If your in college and you smoke every now and then because you enjoy it and it makes you happy then there’s nothing wrong with that really. If you begin smoking purely out of habit then i think it becomes a problem.
