I have started meditating about 7 months ago and everything is going fine but i have reached a point where i had realized that i really need to stop smoking weed or at least drasticly slow down the consumption rate in order to improve better and faster. The mindfullness has drasticly reduce the "wanting" part of the addiction but still i cant seem to not smoke when someone lights one up around me.
Any advice from people who have passed trough this situation?. This is not a big deal since i know that in time i will end up givint up ( as a natural result from the path that i have taken ) but i want the short and quick version.
Short and quick version:
In general you shouldn't be doing any kind of meditation when being high. Simply as that. So please, don't.
Besides that, i don't see a problem in smoking weed (unless you're in certain tibetan buddhist traditions where adding smoke in a room is belived to provoke some beings which in turn can create obstacles for your living). Weed is OK, weed is good. It's just that marijuana is a bit overrated!! And being sober with a peaceful mind is even better.
The real thing that worries me is that you're unable to willfully reject marihuana when people are smoking around you. Since marihuana is not really physically addictive, i'd say you perhaps are just being a bit self-indulgent. Discipline, my friend!!
