ok i'm only asking this because i'm really curious, i'm not asking because i want a lecture on how bad it is.
but...
i smoked pot a few times before. and it's never enjoyable for me. but this last time was just horrible. i was getting so anxious to the point that i needed to lay down i thought i was just going to puke. i have social anxiety and the whole situation was just horrible for me. i felt like my social anxiety had escalated to a new extreme. i was even MORE aware of everything coming out of my mouth and it all just sounded so dragged out and awkward and stupid. do you think that my social anxiety has something to do with the fact that pot just isn't pleasant for me?
i'm never smoking it again btw (thats how bad it was), so like i said i'm not asking because i want to be told not to do it. just wondering if it can cause escalated social anxiety. everyone else seems to enjoy it so much!

Hi. Just thought I would respond. And the answer is yes, absolutely. Depending on your nature, if you are quiet, insecure already, sensitive, and a little over-analytical to begin with, marijana can cause these traits to become seriously heightened. A more healthy and more productive choice for people with this kind of nature is action, preferably experiential where your senses are heightened (which I think a lot of people are looking for when they smoke) and strengthened instead of heightened and intensified, which pot can do a little too much and throw you off balance.
