I never did anything other than drinking until I was almost 26. My roommate has smoked weed for a while and I tried it a few months ago. Now, sometimes when he smokes, he'll offer me some. I'd say I probably smoke with him now like 4-5 times a month., and I've been doing this for the past 4-5 months. That sounds like a lot just writing it out now . But I feel bad smoking his and so I told him next time he goes to his guy to let me know and I've give him some money so I could get my own 1/8. When I smoke, I mean like 3-4 hits from a bowl or hitter. Is that a lot? Ok here's the thing. I like it. I'd like to keep it recreationally but I tend to get addicted to things I like (like the internet). I never had a problem with drinking alcohol, but I'm worried that before I know it I'll be smoking weed every day. So how can I prevent that from happening? I know nobody tries to become addicted to a drug, but I also know these things just end up happening.
