Pressured into smoking cannabis.

Skip To Footer Menu
12th Oct 2011

I started smoking cannabis at 12 due to peer pressure. The first time I only had a small amount of a joint and didn’t have much effect the second time it did. The day started and we went to meet some friends we were in a group of about 3 or 4 and we were having a few joints. It came to my turn and everyone was cheering me on saying “go on go on more more” I didn’t want to seem scared so I smoked and smoked.

The effect hit me hard, I found myself going dizzy and I started to panic my chest went tight and I curled up into a ball on the floor, the voices of the people around me were faint and I could almost make out someone saying “is he ok?” I felt as if I was dying. My breathing got heavier and heavier my chest tighter and tighter until I struggle to breathe at all. I was terrified but I managed to sit up the others were laughing and making fun of me. It eventually got too much and I felt my stomach drop as I vomited repeatedly over and over for what felt like forever, it was the most terrifying experience I’ve had and I am not eager to repeat it. Now at seventeen cannabis is not a part of my life and never will be.
