WARNING; Growing cannabis is a gateway hobby.
Posted 21 April 2012 - 10:11 PM
This is a warning to people considering growing their own cannabis and for those already partaking but not realising the effects it may be having on them.
This socially unacceptable hobby may just be the gateway to a downward slide.
Participation may lead to-
• Mental stimulation.
• An interest in growing other plants such as fruits and vegetables, maybe even tidying up your garden and filling that with life.
• An interest in DIY. This could extend to adding extra insulation to your house and trapping heat in! or taking on those diy tasks around the home you previously thought yourself incapable of.
• If growing outside it could lead to a new appreciation and respect for the countryside.
• Physical exercise and less time for the couch, particulary outdoor growers.
• A sense of responsibility, increase in planning and time management.
• A sense of pride and satisfaction from doing something yourself.
• An increase in karma for not lining ‘other’ criminals pockets.
• You may find yourself mixing with other ‘socially unnaceptables’ on the internet, they have proven to be helpful, relaxed, intelligent and humorous people, do you want to mix with the wrong crowd?
Do any of these sound like positive enhancements on your life? You have been warned, it is criminal……..

my names reg and this is my story..
it was just an innocent hobby at first, there were no signs i'd be sucked into the "hard" hobbies, doesnt happen to blokes like me i said.
i started mowing the lawn and doing the privets before they needed it, buying gardening equipment just for the sake of gardening for gods sake. it was just the beginning of my downfall into the life of a "hobbiest" before i knew it fencing, decking, york stone was purchased and layed without a single moan, i was hooked
this is just the tip lads, them wounds are just to deep to tell my whole story but if ive stopped one of you's from getting the hobby bug i feel it was worth it

Since joining here my drinking has lessened, I'm more open and receptive to others opinions, I've learnt something new every time I've logged on and I've met some uber cool folks! And to top it all my weed rocks, fucking ridiculous we are all breaking the law

It's a no brainer !!!!!
Benefits accrued so far
lots of pot to smoke so lots of money to spare (which tends to be spent on my new hobby )
quit drinking completely
lost over 2 stone in weight
very strong core muscles due to growing too many plants in too small a space
PLUS !!!!! I have found some lovely people to share laughs and tips with on here

Last year I got into gardening and grew some tomatoes, got a brilliant crop but it didn't satisfy me.
This year it has spiraled out of control into growing runner beans , chilli's , cucumbers, lettuce , onions , morning glory and bachelors button.
The DIY started as just putting some laminate flooring down, but now I'm putting new doorways in, windows, decking, patio..the list is endless.
I've started drinking less and people often comment how healthy I look.
I hope I can turn things around and become a slack jawed, fat bigoted oaf.
I've made a start by trying to take an interest in football but perhaps it's too late.

i always had many hobbies over the years, i wont bore to death with all, but yes, growing canna has definitely opened up a few new past times as well.
like most of the other replies, i too have taken up gardening, my wife always kept an immaculate garden and very slowly over the last 3 years i have completely taken over.
much to her relieve as we have a bigger garden since we moved, the cheeky moo.
PS. 'my names reg and this is my story..' that cracked me up mate.
