The only successful thing is that you convinced yourself that you are a successful puffer. The rest of us know you as an addict making excuses to keep being an addict. Which is typical of an addict.
No pot smoker only smokes pot their entire addiction. They need something new, something more powerful, something longer lasting.
This is a fine example of pot use being linked to violence in the home. It is NOT just the junkie it is also the drug!
Look at all of the celebs who thought they too were untouchable successful druggies and alcoholics. They all come crashing down at some point, and you will too.
I dont think so

Myth: Pot kills brain cells
Government experts now admit that pot doesn't kill brain cells.(8) This myth came from a handful of animal experiments in which structural changes (not actual cell death, as is often alleged) were observed in brain cells of animals exposed to high doses of pot. Many critics still cite the notorious monkey studies of Dr. Robert G. Heath, which purported to find brain damage in three monkeys that had been heavily dosed with cannabis.(9) This work was never replicated and has since been discredited by a pair of better controlled, much larger monkey studies, one by Dr. William Slikker of the National Center for Toxicological Research(10) and the other by Charles Rebert and Gordon Pryor of SRI International.(11) Neither found any evidence of physical alteration in the brains of monkeys exposed to daily doses of pot for up to a year. Human studies of heavy users in Jamaica and Costa Rica found no evidence of abnormalities in brain physiology.(12) Even though there is no evidence that pot causes permanent brain damage, users should be aware that persistent deficits in short-term memory have been noted in chronic, heavy marijuana smokers after 6 to 12 weeks of abstinence.(13) It is worth noting that other drugs, including alcohol, are known to cause brain damage.

How do you know are you one?
Where you unable to handle just getting high you had to do harder things?
Well i was for over 12years everyday.
I have NEVER touched anything else never wanted to i was happy with pot.
So what you say is very wrong there are plenty of potheads that only do pot.

Now i have stopped it's beem a couple of years.
Was never violent either (where did you even come up with that) So for my entire "addiction"
as you say. I have only done pot.

YOu should really learn the facts. You really sound like an idiot.
