Lighter Pocketing-Thievery or Survival Instinct

We've all done it. But more recently I notice it happens more when I have no lighter to my name whatsoever. And that when it happens there was no conscious effort in deciding to or not. You only notice it when it saves your smoke session (or saves you from walking 10 feet, either one)like it was destiny. So I got to assuming this very well could be some stoner survival instinct we acquire somewhere along our stoney careers.

I've do it without even noticing. I'd say its a survival instinct for my own lighter. If I immediately pocket my lighter I never lose it. It then becomes a habit, even when it's not my own lighter. It happens every time. I know dudes who buy pink lighters in order to prevent the lighter thief.

Hahaha. Just got home with a new bong and saw those lighter leashes - gay lol. Ill post the pic when i get it approved, tube was marked $69 without tax and dude gives me it for 55 cuz thats what i had on me and I was a 'regular customer'. Had a great matchin male piece for it already too I'd forgot about from a broke bong awhile ago so i got a spare. :51: Back to topic I think you all make good points. I usually attempt to get lighters back to suspected victims, not very hard though.

I had a girl steal my lighter on purpose a while back. I tried to pay attention but she was pretty and I was stoned. She got my lighter, I have the satisfaction of knowing she will never smoke my bud again.
Word of warning, never play the lighter game with the guy who has the best buds in the area.

Back in the day I had a knot of at least 100 lighters I held them together with
a huge rubber band.I couldnt help my-
self.At the end of a long night I would
have 2-8 lighters and Ididnt remember
how I had got them.For 15 years I never
paid for a lighter.

What state or country are you in? I want to know so I will stay the fuck away from it. I like keeping my lighters. Especially the Djeeps. Stealing is wrong, especially from that person thats providing the weed for the smoke sesh. My feeling is if you steal my lighter, what are going to steal next?

Didn't mean to bust your balls man. I played the game when I was a teen, but when it happened to me a couple times,(I get high and its hard to keep track of my lighter when your engage in conversation) it really sucks. I have even done it by accident but I normally return it with a blunt in hand and ready to smoke. But when I know its done on purpose like the girl I mentioned in a earlier post. It pisses me off so I Cblocked her from my herb. A true shame cause I have pretty good shit.

Solution...don't use a lighter. No one has ever taken my matches. :laugh2:

Either because they don't want them or they don't have the balls to take anything from me, either one is fine. :3:

Just smokers reflex, its nothing extraordinary. I am suprised almoast every morning after party night where the hell I get this much ligters :) .
I have my own theory. I stole one male ligter and put into pocket, then I stole female ligter and put to the same pocket. And in the morning, they have some childrens with them :)
That's stupid funny man.:cool027:

I've sometimes walked off with someones lighter because it looked like mine not because I stole it..lol I'd hate to be left with no lighter so I always make sure to return the lighter.

Agreed. I too am guilty of stealing a lighter or two. I do think this is a survival instinct b/c like you have said it happens in the subconcious.

I have taken so many lighters over the years. never intentionally, but people always seem to leave them in my car. mostly cuz people always wanna cruise around and smoke in my car cuz its a convertible. but it sucks cuz you can't really smoke with the top down :(

When i light a bong im so concentrated on taking the hit that i forget about the lighter and my automatic reaction is to pocket it. My friends hate me for it. Its become a joke slash game amongst us to see who can steal the most stoned persons lighter and how often in one night/hour
