Default Do I smoke weed too often?

So my friend on Discord has been criticizing me out for my weed use, for seemingly no reason, I explained to him that I only smoke a few times a week and I get good grades in school. But the more I tried to explain this to him, the more I second-guessed myself about my use, thinking maybe I smoke too much, or I need to quit. Maybe I'm subconsciously trying to find excuses to say that I don't smoke too much.

I'm sure that if I really wanted to, I can quit, but I don't have a good reason to do so.

The last time I smoked was yesterday and the day before, but I don't intend on smoking again until the weekend.

Right now, I'm confused, is my friend overreacting? Or is it me?

Tell me what you think of this situation, any feedback is a great help.

Thanks.

I'd definitely try cutting it down if I were you. Try limiting it to once or twice in the weekend, for example.

I would personally try and cut down your use, gradually maybe to 1 or 2 times a week, and just save it for the weekend maybe ? I know people who smoke more than you but there are also other people who smoke less, so its all up to you really.

I think you should completely stop. It's not good for you. If you find it difficult to stop try vaping.

It completely depends on you - are you achieving your goals?

Personally, I smoked occasionally from the age 13-18 and nearly everyday in university. Luckily I could get good grades without studying much at all.

If you feel bad about your weed usage it's time to slow down, depending on what age you are you should limit it to at /least/ once a week if you really have to to help your brain develop correctly. We don't know fully the effect of weed usage in puberty/whatever to make conclusions but for me I feel it helped open my mind.

My friend who is 25 smokes weed 2/3 times a week and earns 80,000/pa at a software firm despite smoking since he was 13 also. It depends if you can control yourself and don't let weed be an escape for problems.

I also know people at university who smoked every day who did better than me, and some who smoked every day who failed hard.

I think your friend is right but at the same time I also think that they are judgemental!

Is this friend a high performer? what are they like? How valuble is their judgement?
Are they looking out for you? or are they passing judgement?
Sometimes people will judge other people for not listening to them.

What will happen if you keep using a lot, is you will grow tolerance, it will take more weed to get the high you need. (Not the high you need, but satisfaction)
It will also fuck your sleep. Your brain will want to do the same thing because the brain works in patterns and processes.

Ask yourself these questions?

Does smoking marijuana make you sleep in? How do you sleep?

Do you eat a lot late at night? Junk food or what do you eat?

What do you do when you are high? Aimless activities or proactive creative things

Do you smoke alone? Do you smoke with friends?

What do you wan to do when you get out of school?

3 times a week is almost every other day.

I would suggest cutting down and finding a new hobby to replace time spent high.
