Submitted by Anonymous on December 11, You're only in rehab because you were ]stupied and got caught smoking!! Furthermore I've done a lot of research and Marijuana isn't addictive. Submitted by Anon on October 18, For full disclosure, I love weed and really hate that I have to quit.
At 35 I finally pursued some mental health help. In order to test some of the psycho stimulants associated with these it was recommended by my Dr. Anyone that has experience with these disorders knows that moderation is tough to pull off.
It wasn't made clear to me how much I could smoke without altering the results of the meds, so I decided to just stop all together. I am 5 days in and have had really bad withdrawls. I agree that not everyone will experience these. I am also not debating the drugs' dangers or benefits. There is a lot of propaganda out there, both for and against marijuana. I looked up this post for the sole purpose of getting an explanation of the garbage I'm enduring this week.
For me the withdrawal is very real and fairly severe. Starts with no sleep. Yawning all night but can't stop the racing thoughts. Finally get to sleep only to wake up an hour later drenched in sweat. I've had nightmares every night and a definite increase in suicidal thoughts. The first half of the day I have a light nausea which also makes it hard to eat.
By early evening it typically subsides and I can get some food in. The lack of eating has me feeling hunger pains all day. I have always been anxious and honestly can't tell if that is any worse. I do have some shakes, but again that could be related to chills, fatigue and malnutrition. Smoke, don't smoke, to each his own. But dam this sucks: Two birds and all. In closing, this post is about withdrawls, and for me, this site has squashed any thoughts I had about whether or not there was something else going on.
Good luck and stay strong! Submitted by josesito on October 20, I know this is for teens. But would like to share my experience I'm a chronic smoker Been smoking over 35 years I quit for two months just to relapse again withdrawals are serious worst is depression lost bout 15 lbs couldn't hold any food no apetite , couldn't sleep mad at the world but I dint recognize the symptoms so I thought I was sick so another thing to worry bout two months later apetite started to comeback sleeping a little better spending more time with family and grand kids I was leaving a diferent life style kind of like it so I figured I got this bad habit out of the way so I said well I quit I have no more urge to get hig in my 10 week I smoke a bowl and that was it I was back to smoke again and it seems like I'm smoking more than before so I'm planing my quiting journey I know the symptoms so I hope this time be a little easier than last time wish me luck.

You telling yourself and making the decision on your own, the situation is in your hands and already embedded into your mind. I got drug tested at school so I obviously had to stop, and after smoking weed a few times a day for 2 years straight, tell withdrawal was terrible.
I would wake up every morning at 3: Ithe lasted about 5 days until I have up and bought my last dub and had closure with my self and the herb. Weed withdrawal is real and it sucks. Submitted by eric on October 22, This is month four of my not smoking weed.
I think i can go longer this time too, it feels like i should have closed that chapter a while back. Being stoned for sixteen years means i missed out on alot of genuine good times with family and friends. Im a better person all around when im not ripped, getting stoned constantly was and is a bad choice for me because im an introvert and have an addictive personality, hence the being stoned to the bone for 16 years. If your trying to quit puff on a vape cig thing, just the act of smoking can help you forget to pack the bowl.
Stash the vape cig round or in your old stash spot too, it will warm your heart. I can understand a young gun feeling like pot is not a problem, ive been there, its just that smoking weed is such a worn out trail. Plenty of people do it its almost to acceptable now, which is kind of lame, especially if your a rebel at heart like me.
I still get drunk as hell and black out weekly, im self destructive to the core. What, you thought this had a happy ending? Booze is my second drug of choice and i cut back big time. The liquor is the next thing to go to the wayside. I hope your journey to stop getting high is as fruitfull as mine.
Reading other peoples posts has helped me so much, thank you all. Even the pro pot people, i use to have similar arguments, even inside my own skull after a few tokes. Submitted by Eddie Llorrac on October 22, I have been smoking on a daily basis for 40 years. Raised three great kids, successful marriage, paid off my house put three kids through college, literally no debt.
Play full court basketball 3 days per week, run 3 miles twice a week. Going for a new job which requires the pot test, not a drug test because you can do coke and pass with in three days. You can be a fat drunk and pass within a few hours. Off weed for four days. First two days tough on the stomach and had little appetite.
Last two days fine. I will go back as soon as I get this new job. Love weed just like the millions of people who love booze. Submitted by Bo on October 25, Lucky it's that easy for you. Unfortunately most people don't have that ability. Submitted by Dr G. Thumb on November 24, I started at 15, earning six digits by mid 20s, work out, ski hard in winter and known as the comedian in all my circles.
I personally believe it's a lack of mind control for those that suffer. As well as over worrying the normal minor symptoms of withdrawal. Do people freak out when they're hungover after a heavy night?
Sure you will sweat more as your body burns THC in your fat cells, your appetite won't be raging munchies, which is not a normal appetite anyway, and you won't pass out at night and fall asleep like other non smokers. The rest is I'm the mind. Work out, occupy your mind and know yourself. I been smoking hard for 15 years. I am on a break at the moment just because the missus wants me clean for baby making duties. So yeah I been sweating this week and not devouring food like a rabid animal, but otherwise no problems.
Each to their own I guess. But my advice to people is chill. It won't kill you. You will sweat and lose appetite for a few days.
Work out, drink shakes, eat soup and don't keep thinking about weed. Go out, have a drink, play sport occupy your mind. You're manifesting symptoms yourself. Submitted by Anonymous on October 23, I hope these comments are jokes. After 10 years of straight smoking I am totally addicted. Every time I try to quit I'm a mental basket case and sick to my stomach. Submitted by AG on October 29, I knew if I wanted to be healthy later in the future.
I would have to stop!! I'm not Turing back.. I feel I've come along way to stop my addiction. Only question is when will the symptoms stop, so I can feel normal again!! Submitted by rachel on October 29, How long does the withdrawal symptoms usually last? I'm on day three. Submitted by Matt on October 29, Hi, I'm here to let you know that Marijuana withdrawal it a very real thing as I am experiencing it right now. After daily use of about a gram sometimes more since the age of 15 til I decided to quit for various reasons.
The first couple weeks I had tones of energy as well as became much more adept socially, started killing it on dates as well as many other advantages over the calm constant relaxed feeling I always had as a daily user. So much so that I went to the docs to get tested for every std, once those test came back clean I also got tested for strep, mono, and a whole wack load of other issues and all came back clean.
Now I'm a very healthy person who should have plenty of energy. I eat very healthy, workout times a week drink plenty of water eat lots of veg cook all home cooked meals. The only thing that can explain this constant tired feeling is that I quit weed.
I am on week 6 now and am hoping that another month or so this feeling will go away. I had gone a week or so without ever feeling this bad before but this was the first time I have gone more than that. It's causing me to sleep in longer than by about 2 hours, been feeling a little depressed, only have good energy for about 5 hours in the afternoon n feel tired early at night. Also have confirmed that it is not caused by depression I am reasonably happy..
Don't kid yourself people, 11 years of constant drug use even something as harmless as weed can have side affects. Quitting smoking sucked more than this but never had me going to the docs to get blood tests twice in one month.
I cannot wait for this to be over so I can move on with my life with much more motivation, energy, social skills, more confidence, I'm even a better snow boarder and dancer now and am having much much more fun than I ever had on weed. Submitted by Murphylad on November 01, Ive been off weed for 32 days now, some days ill feel great, and like today i felt really down, shakey, not much appetite and didnt want to see anyone, even my girlfriend, is this normal?
I was smoking about an 8th a day of strong stuff, and then i just went cold turkey to sort my life out as i was just sat in all day everyday. So someone please tell me they have had these feelings because im freaking outtt aha. Submitted by Sam on March 09, I am 90 days off marijauana and still trying to get my life back.
Doing better ad will get out of it soon I believe. Submitted by shaktibum on November 02, I started smoking again about 2 years ago. In my 20's i was a chronic pot smoker, i quit for 12 years when single parenting happened and it was just too hard to do stoned. I started again when my daughter hit puberty, and we didn't get along as well. A puff or two is all it took to 'take the edge off' my irritability and just chill out.
Now 2 years later, I smoke morning,noon and night to just 'take the edge off' and make me functional. Each time i try to quit i relapse as the irrititablilty i feel is out of control and depression often escalates too. Now i am trying again to break the pattern. I am suffering big time, headaches, anger, depression, crying uncontrollably, anxiety, confusion, no energy, no motivation. It is tough because I know just a puff on a doobie and I will feel massively better for a little while at least.
Anyway this page is helpful, i will keep trying. Submitted by Katie on November 02, I believe in the power of marijuana. I believe the war on drugs is a crime, and I fully support the legalization of weed, among other drugs. For the first time in my life, I was home. It was the weakest of the substances in my body at that time, so that in comparison to my mad-raving club-kid weekends of Ecstasy, LSD and bumps of speed or coke, marijuana seemed as innocuous as a cup of herbal tea.
It was always present, but I hardly noticed it was there. My transition to massive stoner in my 30s was a seamless, logical progression. Pot, which I viewed as healthier than goji berries and quinoa combined, was the therapeutic overlord of these inferior substances. I was not alone in my marijuana worship; I knew plenty of ex-club kids who graduated from being beautiful, reckless pillheads to mystical marijuana professionals. But as my life got more adult and more complicated, my relationship with pot intensified.
I started self-medicating like a motherfucker, and although I had no doubt my problem was enormous, everywhere I turned I found reason to justify my use, whether it was a medical-cannabis study online, a pro-pot op-ed in the New York Times or yet another blunts-cure-all conversation with another user.
Whoever dreams of becoming a middle-aged pothead? I was supposed to be vibrant and enjoy at least a modicum of professional success, but I was always too high and burned out to write anything to completion. I had become an unmotivated, out-of-breath hag, always with the enormous double-stuff spliff in my right hand. No amount of weed could give me any type of buzz. I was just plain tired.
