Superfrog asked:

First of all im a senior in high school and the group i hang out with is kinda an outdoor group. We go backpacking and the majority of us are either wrestlers or runners. Latley everyone in my crew has been getting into rec. drugs, i.e. marijuana and mushrooms. I refrained from using simply becuase i am training for my first marathon and I wanted to get a nice time on it. Now I just dont want to do it because even though they say its not addicting, it is all they flippin’ do. It makes them lazy and they sit all day playing video games, we rarely do our older activities like camping, etc. They eat a shitload and when i do chill with them they want to only do “kickbacks” and talk about “hotboxing” and we go and wait in some desolate park for a sketchy dealer to come out of the bushes and sell them overpriced crap. I dont want to hang out with them anymore and think I should start getting “straight edge” friends now.

P.S. Im not religious and that has nothing to do with this so please save it for your youth group. xD

    Slowly distance yourself from them. you should especially stop going to the park, cause you ALL might get busted even if you didn’t do any drugs. Be careful

    Start by hanging out with them less…if you usually hang out three times a week, make it once week. Then you make it every other week. Then you make the hours less, like if it used to be 5 hours you cut it down to 3 and 2 and 1…Just be like “Oh my cousin came into town I’m gonna hang with him” or something.

    Meanwhile talk to other guys who aren’t potheads. Make new friends at school, at another club, maybe pick up another sport?

    At least you’ll remember your high school days, they won’t. If they become too boring ditch them. There are few things more trying that to hang out with drunks and druggies. The extra problem with pot, is that the smokers seems to find a way to be on it all the time as opposed to boozers, their lives just become one long foggy high. Tell them it would be cheaper to bang their heads into the walls a few times and then spin around in circles for a couple of minutes, that way at least you would have some laughs.

    I know how you feel :-/ I’m a senior in college and I’ve had this problem for about 4 years now.

    I think you should talk to somebody about it. And i agree that you should distance yourself but I dont think you should take your sweet time. Pot is dangerous and it has lasting consequences. If I were you I would take myself out of a dangerous situation. Be careful and hope this helped. 🙂

    Are you aware that hanging around stupid people is not an excuse if the cops catch you? Even if you are not smoking, you could be charged with something. This kind of thing will stay on your record for many, many years and can influence any jobs you might want in the future.

    First off, good for you for not falling under peer pressure. You’ve already taken the first step and recognized that you and the rest of your friends interests have changed. You should get a new group to hang out with that will want to share and participate in your outdoor and active lifestyle.
