Take a Bubble Bath

One of the many perks of smoking, is a huge boost in creativity. Whether you're a painter, a writer, or a musician, smoking can help you look at things in a new light and in turn create something that is truly beautiful and ground-breaking.
Go To a Concert
With senses heightened and your mood relaxed, all the sensory stimulation of a concert feels that much more intense. You can feel the music and the energy from the crowd. With lower inhibition it’s easier to dance and make new friends. And so long as the band doesn’t suck, the show will seem that much more electric and exciting.

Play Video Games
Name a more iconic duo, I'll wait...Video games and smoking have gone hand in hand for many and there are so many reasons why. While videos games have been proven to improve hand eye coordination, some activities are known to significantly increase anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties within the human body, making you play longer. In a study done by the Groningen Mental Enhancement Department in the Netherlands, they tested the affects of herbs and video games on 100 test subjects with half getting to smoke. The final results were that the smokers in the group showed a 43 percent better memory retention than the non smokers, so if you're stuck on a level, smoking might be the answer for you. Furthermore if you enjoy playing sports games like Madden or 2K, creativity can help you call plays and make moves your opponents won't expect form you.

What better way to spend a break from video games than by watching a movie? If you have ever smoked before going to a movie, you know how easy it is to lose yourself in the movie and transport yourself into the big screen. You become invested in the characters, the plot, everything the movie has to offer and you notice every detail of the movie so you won't have to google what happened or what you missed after the movie. If you need help finding a good movie to watch while you're high, here are some great suggestions!
