    That always happens to me, but it's never really freaked me out...

    The very first time I smoked, I thought I was gonna die, but now I know whats normal and whats not. A racing heart is normal, for me at least.

    If it's been 7 months, and you want to smoke again, I'd say go a little easy on it. Take a hit or two of some low end stuff, see how you handle it.

    2 blunts or 2 joints? Because 2 blunts is kind of a lot, but 2 joints is the right amount. I just smoke a dime and that's good enough for me, not too much but not too little.
  5. Weed is SUPPOSE to make ur heart go faster; notice everytime that your smoking, ur heart rate is faster. It's totally normal, you won't die or anything, don't worry bout it. ;)
    It's because u inhale smoke instead of oxygen, so the heart go faster cuz u breathe less oxygen.

    if your heart was racing really really fast, you thought you were gonna die, and you were freaking out, it sounds like a panic attack.
    and it's gonna keep happening because you already have it in the back of your mind that it will happen next time you smoke, get what i'm saying?
    i used to get a panic attack EVERY TIME i smoked pot. but i don't anymore since i learned what was actually happening.


    Panic attacks are frightening but fortunately physically harmless episodes. They can occur at random or after a person is exposed to various events that may "trigger" a panic attack. They peak in intensity very rapidly and go away with or without medical help.
    • People experiencing panic attacks may fear they are dying, that they are suffocating, or that they are having a heart attack. They may voice fears that they are "going crazy" and seek to remove themselves from whatever situation they may be in.
    • Some people may begin breathing very rapidly and complain that their "hearts are jumping around in their chest." Then, within about an hour, the symptoms fade away.
    • About 5% of the population will experience panic attacks during their lifetimes. People who have repeated attacks require further evaluation from a mental health professional. Panic attacks can indicate the presence of panic disorder, depression, or other forms of anxiety-based illnesses.
    "All of a sudden, I felt a tremendous wave of fear for no reason at all. My heart was pounding, my chest hurt, and it was getting harder to breathe. I thought I was going to die."

    "I'm so afraid. Every time I start to go out, I get that awful feeling in the pit of my stomach and I'm terrified that another panic attack is coming or that some other, unknown terrible thing was going to happen."
