I smoked my first joint when I was 12 years old, a young girl in my boyfriends shed/outdoor bedroom. It was some really strong stuff that gave me the driest mouth ever. From that day I smoked weed until I was 22, when I stopped due to having hypersensitivity, depression, suicidal tendencies, extreme anxiety etc. I used to smoke to feel cool, then I would smoke just to feel normal. What's your story, who gave you your first joint, did your parents let you smoke, what country were you in etc? My mum had no choice but to let me smoke, and s**t I learned my lesson, but I do wish she'd had some support to beat some sense into me.
