  smoked Cannabis


I've been doing weed for a couple years now. Sometimes I do it everyday, sometimes I stay weeks without it. But I have had never done it while being sick.

I do not smoke anything other than weed and I had been seriously sick for a few weeks. My throat was burning, my nose was dripping and my voice was weak. I thought I wouldn't even be able to smoke. I had been really busy, so I haven't smoked weed for 2 months by now. Me and a friend of mine went out, and she really wanted to do it. She didn't wanted to do it alone, so I gave it a try, even though my throat was really hurting.

I started a bit slow, and it wasn't being so difficult as I picture it to be. Then my throat went really irritated and stated to hurt so bad that I stopped smoking. I calmed myself down and after awhile I gave it a try again. By now my friend was already high, as she smoked most part of it. This time I started coughing really hard. I calmed myself down and we stopped smoking. After 20 minutes my head felt a little numb, but that was all. We both got home, and as I always do after I smoke pot, I went for a little nap. When I woke up I wasn't high anymore, but I couldn't feel my throat. It was really numb. I cough on purpose several times and I couldn't feel anything at all. This had never happened to me before, but it was really a relief.

Next day I was feeling a lot better, I wasn't so sick as I was before, and even though I could feel my throat again, it wasn't hurting anymore. Since then, everytime I feel a little sick I smoke weed. And it works everytime.
