Yeah my bong and blunt days are pretty much gone
Was never really into either too much. Bought a bong (and named it "Arthur Bongarelli") in high school after I first started smoking and was given another bong a few years later after my ex's dog knocked over and broke Arthur but by then the novelty had sorta worn off. And some of the folks I used to hang out with were really into blunts so in social smoking situations it was either that or nothing. In both cases, it's just too much. I don't want to feel like I'm about to hack up a lung every time I take a hit. Plus, I'm just too old- even large, high-powered joints are too much for me these days. I've always preferred pipes so I have control over my intake and how much is burning. With bongs I usually feel like I either didn't get anything or that a forest fire worth of smoke just entered my body.
The ultimate gross bong experience is drinking the bongwater after use. I did this once with Arthur when we used tequila instead of water. Which also means we were probably inhaling alcohol vapor along with weed. Ah, to be young again.
