I've never done any drugs, I feel like I'm missing out. I talk to my friends and they're sometimes high and they sound like they're having a blast. Am I being too uptight, should I just yolo it and start smoking weed?

Being high can be fun, but it can also trigger anxiety/paranoia/panic attacks. I stopped smoking for that reason. It's fun, but not necessarily more fun than anything else, though. Half the time you end up wasting the night watching reruns and eating subpar snacks. But it can be a nice addition to a chill day. If you want to try, there are no real dangers, either. If you tend to be high strung, I'd recommend only taking a hit at a time and seeing how it effects you.1

Whatever, bro, do what works for you. I love weed (I actually have a medical prescription, not that I wouldn't blaze anyway, haha) but it doesn't hit everyone the same way. Some people get chilled out or goofy, others get anxious and paranoid. I'd say that it won't kill you to give it a try, but I'd also say you're not missing some mind blowing experience either. For me, it relaxes me, and there's an "enhancement" feeling, like whatever I do, whether it's watching TV or a movie, or eating, or whatever, it's just better, haha, I enjoy it more. But it's not like it makes a bad movie good or food won't taste good without it either, so it's certainly not a necessity. I'd say that if you've made it this far without it, you certainly don't "need" to start, but if it's something you're genuinely curious about, give it a try, but do it because YOU want to, not because you don't want to seem uptight to your friends. Also, this applies just to weed, which is pretty harmless and wrongly demonized by the anti-drug faction, I wouldn't recommend you trying any "real drugs", haha. I'm actually astounded at how misinformed some people are about pot. Like there are people who actually think it's "drugs" like a narcotic is, and that couldn't be further from the truth. It's pretty harmless, and even beneficial medicinally in some cases, when used in moderation, and there's no physical addiction at all. So it's safe to try it if you want, but even as much as I enjoy it personally, I'd never tell someone they "have to" try it out. It's no different from alcohol (and actually much less harmful to you), some people enjoy a cocktail to take the edge off, others don't. If you feel you're just as happy when you're not under the influence of any substance, then it ain't broke, so there's no need to fix anything.0
