Hey guys im also on day 5 , 19 years old weigh 125 lbs 5'7 . ive been smoking for a total of 5 years , but about 4 years consistently from wake until sleep. I'd probably go through close to an eighth a day and on the weekends maybe even a bit more. I decided to stop 5 days ago cold turkey because im sick of the haze it has out me in. Ive always LOVED weed the culture, the social aspect , every little thing about it im a known stoner in my town and ive always glorified weeds attributes to everyone and anyone defending it until the grave. I have no pre existing anxiety ( that i know of? Lol) but around 2 months ago i started developing anxious like thoughts to the point where id begin to have attacks and just feel totally out of it. I tried blaming everything but weed , and i just couldn't put a damn finger on what else it could be . life has always been super awesome to me i have an amazing family, a tremendous amount of friends , a very loving girlfriend and an amazing job opportunity lined up for me . So where this anxiety came from i have absolutely no clue . Ive always been (IMO) an extremely deep thinker i have dabbled with psychedelics , but not in a long while so i know its not contributed to this anyhow i have never ever feared a thought or the way i viewed the world until a month ago i began overthinking every thought getting scared of my own ideals and eventually thinking very irrationally . After a while of this and continuing to chronically smoke i decided that it had been the weed after a few hearty Derbs of some fresh colorado shatter. I woke up and put down the ganj. Since then my anxiety has almost ceased to exist . Since day 1 i have felt clear headed and 10x better than i had while smoking .. Its un real i can assess my thoughts and finally put them back into perspective . Ive expierenced little no withdrawal besides appetite and the occasionally boredom but thats only because i have been sitting around watching South Park LOL . Ive always had incredibly vivid dreams so the dreams to me are nice and i enjoy having them back full force. I'm not sure why i am not expierencing the withdrawals the way some are . Im able to sleep, and interact completely normally the only symptom i seem to have is a wave or two of feeling a slight lingering anxiety anyhow , very excited for the future if im feeling this good at day 5 who knows how I'll feel at day 30, 40, 50?! Drugs are not the answer my friends being sober is the best drug of all hang in there everyone and stay POSITIVE . You have to make a serouise mental decision that it in fact IS impacting you negatively if you over use. Weed is an excellent source of medicine for some , and an awesome recreation for others in moderation but over doing any thing is quite awful for you physically and mentally. Hang in there guys drink water and take vitamins ! I take b complex aswell as fish oil daily for the last month . Also good tip if you find yourself craving go down and grab yourself some quality CBD oil will stop all cravings in there tracks goodluck to all lets beat this bullshit aye?
