I have the same problem. It really doesn't hurt, but I absolutely hate it. I have always liked to be in control of my own body.
I have never used any alcohol or illicit drugs so I could control what my body does and doesn't do. Well, I did drink alcohol 1 time when I was about 21. Couldn't stand up or walk so that was the end of that. I have to admit I tried mj one time. What a boring drug! Staring at nothing has never been that great. My friends still do it but it is definitely not for me.
