Hooray to you for realizing when you had a problem and doing something about it! Now comes the day by day job of quitting. Don’t be afraid to seek help with this, meaning outside professional help. Also, if you’re truly serious about leaving this lifestyle behind you, then you may also need to find some new friends cuz it’s hard to quit if everyone around you is still doing the same thing. Best of luck to you, and just take it all day by day. You can do this!!!
Weed will not give you withdrawls. The feelings you have are in your mind. A tobacco smoker will not suffer withdrawls either. They will crave another smoke, but thats about all there is to it. Try chewing some gum, keep busy.
That’s strange. I didn’t know MJ to be addicting. Not in the way your symptoms are going, but I assume was is happening is a psychological effect. I would imagaine the first thing you should do is regulate your system. Take one day where you wake up early like 9:00 am to get you started and do things. Don’t be lazy. Work out do things during the day. The whole… day. That should help with sleep.
That’s one of the myths about marijuana - that you can’t get addicted. This is ABSOLUTELY false - you can. Here’s more info on the topic and a website link:
Q: Can people become addicted to marijuana?
A: Yes. Long-term marijuana use leads to addiction in some people. That is, they cannot control their urges to seek out and use marijuana, even though it negatively affects their family relationships, school performance, and recreational activities . According to one study, marijuana use by teenagers who have prior antisocial problems can quickly lead to addiction. In addition, some frequent, heavy marijuana users develop “tolerance” to its effects. This means they need larger and larger amounts of marijuana to get the same desired effects as they used to get from smaller amounts.
MJ is not a physically addicting as a drug. That said, the feeling and habit that you are use to, well you are going to have to re-program your mind because you are just wanting to feel that.
Cajun2, you are wrong about tobacco though
I have been through it, not fun…
Regardless, the best thing to do is occupy your time, start working out, ride a bike, run, basically all that frustrated energy needs to go somewhere, and if you can exhaust yourself and not think while doing so is even better, well it was for me.
The insomnia is common and that will go away soon. You’ll have more vivid dreams as well. Its great that your stopping. I agree with all occupy your time look for new things to get invloved with. The problem is down time and boredom and most of all take it day to day.
I guess I didnt have those stories when I gave up cigs. I just didnt see myself as a victim I guess and just sucked it up and quit.
oh yeah, that is crucial, day to day…
victim? who said that, and those articles are not about victims or anything, it is simply science stating what the body goes through when quitting…but I don’t think anyone here is calling victim, but whatever, read it as you want
I agree the victim part kinda confused me
The THC stays in the synapses for up to six months after your last use. It can also interfere with short-term memory. If you stay off the stuff, you will make a full recovery.
try something harder
I quit it for 3 months, the urge should die within a week to a month, and don’t hang out with your pothead friends, it will set a relapse, but when it comes down to it its your body and i don’t know how much it differs, so the withdrawals might last longer/shorter. and one more thing,i’ve never found my self to be 100% my self off weed, i don’t know why just i don’t feel like myself in a way. let’s hope this isn’t the case for you ,but consider all options.
hampton seeing your replys made me lol in real life
