Have you ever gotten too high in a social situation where you needed to act sober?

    You had thought "Oh! I'm definitely going to get baked before going to [insert event]," but then you end up getting reeeeealy baked--bleeding eyes, diminished hearing, everything looks 'hazy,' and you're consciously focused on breathing in and out--and start talking to people who don't know that you smoke, and you're just trying to act normal. lol good times.

    I went to my alma mater the other night (out two years) to see my friend perform in a recital. Of course I vaped several bowls in the car, rendering myself 'high as fuck.' As I walked to the building, I could feel the power of the weed kicking in, fast, which caused a bit of minor social anxiety.

    You think everyone is staring at you because they are.

    yes, but I never had much trouble with it, kind of the opposite actually.
    in highschool I was known as the biggest stoner in school, eventhough some of my friends smoked more as me, I still got the reputation(probably also had to do with the fact that I also grew my own weed, and researched a bit about weed before I first smoked so anyone with questions about weed would come to me for the answers). wich I liked btw, that reputation brought me a lot of benefits. (it was really easy to make friends for example)

    one of those benefits was that all my classmates always thought I was high in class, actually I didn't like being high during class(it felt like a waste of a good high), so only during philosophyclass I was actually high, with a few excepotions. but since I'm not a mornbingperson at all, I always had giant walls under my eyes, wich coincidentally is also how I look high, so I always looked like I was high too.

    anyway, that meant I never had to be hesitant to act a little weird or show my akward side, since if I would react a bit weird to someone they just assumed it was because I was high. and because I had that learning experience, I am now way more comfortable around people, since I'm not constantly thinking of what kind of impression I'm making, I just don't give a fuck and apparently that works well for me.

    Many times. The worst is when I get an uncontrollable case of the giggles. My eyes water when I laugh hard and it can be pretty obvious I'm incapacitated when I get going. It's happened to me on more than one occasion in a store....

    But on the other side of the coin, I don't feel very social without being a bit vaped... so it's a fine line between being fine and being way too baked.

    A few times at drive throughs I have had to just drive off without getting food because while ordering I couldn't stop laughing and was too embarrassed to come all the way up to the window.

    used to smoke like a chimney for years... blunts, joints, bongs, whatever... and most of the time before going grocery shopping, to the mall, to class, family parties, wherever. usually in a car or closed environment. Used gallons of visine and clear eyes so i had that covered but I'm sure I REEKED of weed. Thing is tho, nobody ever said a thing except for one time when I walked into a pizzeria and the cashier said, Wow it smells like weed in here. Do you smell it? but I dont think he suspected it was me. Maybe he did... who knows? And of course, friends would say something but I figured they knew as I was always high before getting to the party. But I always felt it odd that nobody ever questioned it or at least asked about it. Seemed like people treated me somewhat *normal*.

    I do have plenty of friends tho, especially in my younger years that were soooo not cool being high in social situations and I would either have to do the talking or go into the store to pick up their munchies. Good times.

    Just to add to the other side, I can honestly say I could count the times on one hand... I've always been effected a bit different then most everyone I've smoked/vaped with. Not sure why and not that it's good but even when I started smoking at 16 people thought I wouldn't inhale when I smoked with them until they watched to make sure.

    I've only needed visine a couple times and it's only from eating a crazy amount of edibles or drinking. Even my parents could never tell not that they minded,and they were heavy smokers in their day. I fell I love with mj the first time I smoked it, feels like it completed me lol and I've always been jealous of people that get movie style stoned.

    One side effect is getting on this forum and rambling though:D You guys might have the easiest time telling when I'm baked

    Edit- I should add some of the above is kind of moot points since I've always had family friends that grow good bud so I definitely used to smell of it and be noticed

    Went to the dentist the other day vaked and it was very enjoyable!
    First time i have enjoyed the dentist ever!!
    The effects were pretty strong when i walked in and i was pretty paranoid because it felt like i was talking a mile a minute! after it calmed down i felt a lot better!

    I just lay there and smiled all the time, felt very relaxed!
    Was kind of hard concentrating on the conversation though...

    LLLOOVVVEEE being high at the dentist. Makes an event that most people dread, enjoyable!
    Used to have a really cool hygienist back in the day. Would sit there and blah blah blah with her for a while.
    She used to say to me, "You really like it here huh?" on more than a few occasions...

    We used to try to time our acid drops so we didn't come on until we were off the freeway and in the concert. Most of the times it worked out quite well. But there were a few times when the timing was a bit off.......:uhoh:.

    I remember vaping in the car before going to the dentist to have a cavity filled...

    but the sound and feeling of your teeth being drilled isn't exactly an ideal situation in which to be high.

    Reminds me, gotta schedule a check up before im off my dental insurance. I like talking to my boss stoned, she always comments on my "long eyelashes" that she wishes she had. It kinda creeps me out, but its better than her saying, "your eyes are bloodshot"

    talking about going to the dentist... I once went to the dentist the morning after a night on MDMA. and one of the friends present during that night was the son of my dentist. the house we were chilling at that night/morning(after the MDMA, wich we experienced in a local nature reserve) was next to my dentist.

    There's probably a dedicated thread somewhere about things that are hard to do while high...but I can't find it. But today was a classic - try wiring up an adsl ethernet adaptor...eight tiny wires that have to go in the right slots, and not upside-down :doh:

    For the most part, as has been mentioned above, in order for me to get a case of the noids in a social situation I have to give a fuck about the situation and the people in it.

    Occurs when I am priming for a social situation and over due the prep work. Sometimes it feels like I ring the doorbell and its like the chime causes the buzz to kick in full force and unexpected ... at the exact point where the door opens and I think I look like --> :freak:

    Vaping seems to cause this to happen more than combustion for me...when I vape at low temps AND have a cup or two of coffee in tandem. Between the head high of the lower temps without enough contradicting CBDs and the jitteryness of the caffeine it can sneak up on me but I can usually counteract with alcohol. Nothing like being the most high, wide awake drunk at the event :rockon:
